I've been bringing beach balls for the past couple of years. I just wondered if anyone thought I should continue. (no, I was not the white beach ball AIR person; I bring smaller amounts).

I haven't had any trouble bringing them flat in a backpack. I think security was more looking for weapons and drugs and drug paraphernalia than beach balls. I will try to dig up some beach ball coachella pictures and post them here later today.

Sure why not !

Anyone remember the ridiculous amounts of condoms that were blown up and batted around at Vegoose last Autumn ?

Amy, were your balls towards the front at CSS last year? I thought I saw a couple with a bunch of writing on them.

amyzzz
04-11-2008, 10:33 AM
Yes, those were my balls at CSS! :)

I also threw some around during Arctic Monkeys, AIR (an orange octopus), and Infected Mushroom.

Any tips on where to find the cheapest balls around?

I've got 10 backpack-wearing minions ready to pull their zippers down and unleash the glorious wrath of our balls on Coachella!

I'm not sure where the cheapest are; I've been using partypalooza.com. Don't get the yellow smilies cuz they leak. This year they have 12-packs of all yellow or all red for $6.99. I'm not sure what band would require red or yellow though. They don't have purple. :( I'm thinking about getting some "money" beachballs for Roger Waters.

Sweet. Everone should get money balls: $4.95/dozen... their kinda small, though.

I think the 14" money beach balls are much more worth the price.. Haha it would be sick if like 100 of those just started popping up as money came on.

i remember that lol, i have been to the last three and will go again if it happens for sure ....

amy, dont you hate it when you start a thread and the only think you cant do is change the title cuz of a typo, i did that one time too... but do it,the beachballs..... was really surprised the poll says almost 40 percent say no .... there has been the same type of talk with glow things and STS9 for us jam band fans, i always say yes, but the band says no, so who knows ... at coachella, do it gal and take pics :) at WS99 there was this game, where everyone in the front of the stage would pick up all the plastic stuff and throw it to the back, then the back would as much as possible , throw all the stuff back to the front, most of it was these white plastic cups, it looked like it was snowing, way cool ...... that was probably 80k, so like main stage, challenge, lets see the balls. x****

Yeah, I'm not buying 50 beach balls at $2 each. I'm looking to spend under $20.

I like balloons better than beach balls. beach balls tend to fall too fast, whereas balloons will slowly bounce up and down on the crowd... ah. memories of Flaming Lips shows.

Balloons are much harder for me to blow up.

Tell Muse that.

Oh and whoever had the confetti at Tilly last year should bring that too.

I usually only throw a couple beach balls at most, so it's not like they'd be flying all over your head (i.e. like at AIR or Arcade Fire)

I've only managed to gather up 8 beach balls because I didn't order some online in time. I have 2 little mermaids, 1 nemo, 1 mickey mouse, 1 black 8-ball (from last year) and 3 normal beach balls with the multi-colored panels.

Name a band, and I will try to throw the Nemo one for that band if at all possible.

No disrespect meant on the "You're an idiot" vote. This includes the same people who bring them to the Dodger games. I watch people miss double plays and pop flys because their eyes are on the ball instead of the game (pun intended).

amyzzz
04-23-2008, 05:28 AM
I don't feel affronted by the "idiot" votes. I don't really have enough beach balls to block the stage, but I understand your concern.

Amy, I think beach balls are a great idea. No, this is not Dodger Stadium, where I agree they're obnoxious. This is Coachella - it's a desert - a giant beach without water. And given that plenty a beach ball has been enjoying on the sandy side of the beach without ever going into the water, it seems to me that beach balls belong on the sandy part - that's a desert, basically.

And a sea of humanity, or a sea of love, or a sea of face-melts is kind of a sea. So sand+sea=beach.

Bring many beach balls!!!!!

Amy...
When it comes time to inflate your balls,
how about doing this at the 420 tree house?
That way if one of your balls should rupture,
many will be able to enjoy the contact high?
Just a thought.....
