Ok so there was a new intervention tonight on A&E, here's a little plot outline...


As a former clean-cut track star, John's life used to revolve around athletics. Now, after a leg injury ended his running career, John spends his time abusing his body with alcohol, marijuana, ecstasy and hallucinogenic drugs. He believes he is living a charmed life as a successful and popular DJ when the reality is that he is losing his friends, his family and his chance at success in the music industry to an addiction that could result in permanent brain damage or death. His family believes that his only hope lies in an intervention, but can they convince him that he has a problem before it is too late?


So when his family sits him down for the intervention at the end here's kind of how the conversation went

"We love you so much and don't want you to die, etc, etc, will you go to rehab?"

"Whats the date?"

"April 2nd"

"And I would be there for about a month?"

"Yes, or longer"

"Well coachella is on april 29 so there's no way i'm going to rehab"

They eventually convinced him to go, so I guess he missed coachella last year.

Would you go to coachella or rehab?

I was supposed to go to rehab instead of Coachella last year. It did not work out well.

This might be your best quote ever. I'm considering sigging it.

Coachella, without a doubt.

It kind of works as a rehab anyways, at least for me.

I'm happy to get away from everything and to just enjoy the music.

I saw Pat O'Brien walking around Coachella after he got out of rehab.

If my family tricked me into an intervention I would probably have to get help. Under the condition my parents pay for my Coachella trip next year if I got better :D

I saw that too, I turned to my girlfriend and said "did you hear him?"
We agreed that goldenvoice couldn't be happy to get press like that.

It sounds funny to say Coachella, but in reality if you've ever witnessed serious drug problems up close and personal....rehab is the correct answer....

but I know I would've chosen Coachella in the past!!

I got the impression he was going to DJ at Coachella and didn't want to pass up the opportunity. Maybe not though.

he might have bum rushed that stage at coachella, but he was terrible. no way he would have been paid to perform.

Rehab is for people who are to immature to regulate their joyous use of drugs or liquor thus leading them to more immature decisions and the inability to say no to their moron friends who have no real concern for them or their well being.

Friends Don't Let Friends Do To Much!

Stand up strong, hit the pipe once and tell your idiot so called friends to fuck off and go get your tickets to Coachella. And don't bring them!

People would rather choose Coachella over rehab because than they can still use the drugs they want and not worry.
Sorry if that sounds like a bad generalization.

That is ridiculous. Addiction doesn't have anything to do with immaturity.

Dr. Doom is one weird looking mother fucker.

I'll be looking for him in the Sahara with his glowsticks this year.

honestly... I'd choose coach over rehab any day. If mom & dad watched me kill myself for a few years, they could wait the extra month.

P.S. did anyone else notice that the lohan girl didn't go to rehab until after coachella... I bet you she didn't regret it!

Maturity and Addiction have everything to do with each other! You should be mature enough to know your own body, mind and limits before you involve yourself with anything addicting. But most people don't. That's why the tobacco companies prey on the young and immature. And the beer companies push products to adults knowing that the young are watching.

It's like the young girl who went to Amsterdam this year for the Cannabis Cup and had to be dragged out of the Greenhouse screaming and delusional, due to an excessive dosing of cannabis in the form of space cakes, hash and trying to keep up with her friends. Immaturity is giving into peer pressure when your not smart enough to look out for your own safety!

Rehab serves a purpose if your smart enough to use it. If not!, a little natural herd culling never hurts and keeps the specie'ss stronger, smarter members to run things!

Coachella over rehab for sure... but that's me.

People who really need help should get it... but I guarantee that NO addict would pick rehab over Coachella, unless someone promised them more drugs at rehab...
