what will you be doing differently this year? anything you had not done before previously? anything wish you hadn't done?

what are your coachella resolutions?





my personal coachella resolutions:

1.) INUNDATE my system with as much water as possible (so as to avoid last year's incident where i missed all of prince's performance because of a trip to the indio ER)
2.) really truly enjoy everything to its full extent (not that i hadn't done that before, but still)
3.) meet as many wonderful board members as i possibly can
4.) take some sick photos
5.) kidnap brandon flowers... (yeah, i know... i can't help it)

i'm still considering camping the Main Stage for McCartney, but i've seen him before, but I love his music, but Beirut may be on the Outdoor Stage, but Moz and Cohen may be back to back! ahhhhh!
i don't know what i'm going to do until set times are released. my toughest coachella decisions will be made this year.

I assume that Beirut will be playing during sunset on the outdoor or mainstage so you're probably good.

This will be my first time there, so basically:

1- Meet new people
2- Interact with them (avoid staying mute)
3- Watch some new bands
4- Enjoy the camping experience (not used to camp but this is a special occasion)

Beirut/ Franz conflict seems likely. i could do Beirut then, but i sacrifice a good Moz/Macca spot. oh well. Beirut doesn't tour too much and tickets are usually expensive. i guess i'll give up the barricade for Macca and chill in the back. although, we're only in february, i'll come back to it in April.

for now, i wish the Main Stage looked like this:
Black Keys --> Beirut --> Cohen --> Moz --> Macca

sbessiso
02-02-2009, 07:30 PM
I'm actually QUITE nervous about who the black keys will conflict with. Please not Franz!!

but I also really wanna see Morrissey!!

1) Dance without worrying if I look stupid or not. (Or rather, accept the fact that I probably look stupid and dance anyway.)
2) Relax and enjoy the act I am watching without worrying about where I need to go when it is over.
3) Turn some interweb friends into in-person friends.

I'd be down for a churro, only one though, and I have to be stoned to get maximum pleasure out of it.

All of these.

Also, stay away from the shady food. Bring better snacks into my tent. Drink more beer. Bring more friends.

1) spend more time in theDoLab
2) find a way to keep my sinuses and allergies in check (claritin and dayquil were not doing it last year)
3) finally try a Coachurro
4) meet more board people since most everyone I know IRL hate the lineup and are not coming because they are lame and boring
5) wear custom t-shirts every day (one will say "Where the fuck is Asobi Seksu?", one will say "Pulp Reunion for 2010", and still undecided on the last one)

your other shirt should say "I am Dave Wang"

if Mogwai would have been on the lineup, i woulda made a "Blur are shite, once again" shirt.

I used this like crack last year, and I managed to not get a sinus infection. I'm prone to them, so it was a miracle to not get one after all that dry weather. Hopefully Ocean can become your best friend, too.
