This year the attempt of a group shot will be actually be 2 in order to get as many of us as possible. Both will be on Saturday. The earlier one will be on one of the benches at the Outdoor Stage (1:25 - 1:30). The second will be in front of whatever art is in front of the Sahara (2-2:05PM). Feel free to be in both if you can. This is what we're going for on the benches:

For the Sahara shot we won't have the benches of the Outdoor, so just like last year: Tall people in back, shorties in front. Like this:

Same as last year, try to make the five minute window. No bullshit. If you're coming to fuck with someone you have developed a distaste for during your time here, stay away. This is a love fest. All who are interested are invited.

The windows on SATURDAY are:

1:25-1:30 at The Outdoor (you guys get there before me and take over a bench and explain to new friends it's temporary and they could be in it)

and

2PM - 2:05PM for the shot in front of whatever art is in front of the Sahara.


Last year was the first time we did this (http://coachella.com/forum/showthread.php?t=30628) and the 44 plus who showed up might tell you it was a bit of a highlight.

The Outdoor Shot (small for various clusterfuck, lack of benches reasons)

The Sahara shot. A little difficult to organize because of all the meeting and greeting, but it is nice. i think 10 more people than last year.

EDIT later:

Thank you Courtney for numbering up the picture for the identification process. Here's who showed up:


No, he's saying that he finds #43 attractive. You know, the :cat thing like Salah always does. Same thing.

ok, then. 2 to go.


I am by no means a Photoshop pro, but this is something I can do:

indietron
04-12-2010, 09:24 PM
I'd say Sunday but maybe like 10 minutes earlier so it doesn't conflict with Local Natives. The only acts on stage at 2pm are babasonicos and talvin singh, who would both be on at 2:10 anyways

10 minutes earlier could work, but five might be nicer for those catching the tail end of Delphic. Unfortunately the desire for the bench is factoring in the decision.

either day works for me cause I will be at Almighty Defenders at that time on Sat and at Local Natives at that time on Sun, both of which are right next door in Gobi, so I can easily walk over. I won't miss it this time goddammit!

I'm game. But if it's Saturday... might be hard to leave the Almighty Defenders... Sunday sounds great!

edit - and Sunday is the Shrines?! too many King Khan performances difficult to tear away from.

rage patton

Mike, in both of your scenarios this creates a conflict with King Khan! Is there no other way?

and what happened to friday? im gunna be such a cracked out mess by sunday

ivankay
04-13-2010, 03:40 AM
Early Friday people could still be coming in. Saturday and Sunday the folks are more settled in. i think we might have to scrap the bench idea because it would be rude to attempt the shot during a performance. The window to do that on Saturday is filled with conflicts. The proposed Sunday time would cause lateness for King Kahn (and if the group shot turned out like last year, potentially miss the whole show).

i'm thinking of moving this to the Sahara, at 2PM on Saturday. Thoughts?

Can you imagine the picture if everybody had 3 shots beforehand? Mike wouldn't be able to focus even if he wanted to!

BTW...Suff, darling, since I went around reminding people we camped with last year, and then totally spaced it out 3 hours later, I think you should be in charge of remembering this year, k? :lips

ok, time approved by the wisest girl we know. 2PM, Saturday at the Sahara. More than likely in front of whatever art is there with the tent in the back ground. Will edit first post to reflect this.

It'll be tight. Last year we knocked the actual picture out in the five minutes. The meeting and greeting after took up some time (and it was wonderful time).


what happened to the two original times??

Too much potential conflict. And the original location of the benches by the Outdoor was dependent on the performers not playing as to not be asses to the people sitting there to watch. The new time and place seems to be the least conflicted and might get the most of us there.

That's a good one. Plenty of time for people to get in. We could get the benches. People can hang for the Avett Bros after. Conflicts are the last 3rd of Wale (ouch) and the very end of Iglu and Hartley (probably when they'll do their song). Hurm.

So how long does it take to take the photo? For example, if it's in the middle of a set, how much of the set would I expect to miss?

Picture = 5 minutes

Joyful meetings after = could be longer than you think

I'll probably end up at both of the photo shoots. I feel like making a name tag or something because it feels weird to introduce myself to people by saying "hi, I'm Fiyahhh."

TomAz
04-13-2010, 09:11 PM
But then you will have half of the people at each. Seems silly.

Whatever. It's your thing- do whatcha wanna do.


Aww, I don't want two separate pictures. Booooo.

see I agree with these


The way i'm seeing this is getting a picture of the smaller group that can't be in the main shot. i NEED pictures of TOM. i think you understand my obsession.



and now I'm feeling guilty about wanting to see some band that I think I might like but actually know nothing about.

So, I will be there for the 2 pm shot so we all have one big group pic. (Though I still think the bleachers at Outdoor were a superior idea.)

It is the superior idea and would look the best. But the time to steal a bleacher with the least amount of douchiness is between acts and that wasn't working for a lot of people time wise it seemed. i couldn't imagine trying to do a shot of this nature during someone's set. i could see people who were sitting on the benches to be into our project if the band they came to see wasn't playing (and it would be easier to communicate with them sonically speaking). i'm still down with trying to get that bench shot in the time before Porcupine Tree starts playing.

i imagine the bleacher shot to be awesome and would encourage all who could show for it, to do so; but don't let it take you away from a great show you're seeing.

i'll be at both group shot attempts. If you can't make one, please make the other....2's my limit.

After i take the first group shot, you come up to me and say "you look a bit tense there buddy. I know something that will help that out."

Then you proceed to rub my shoulders. i'm a little weirded out, but it feels so nice. You're having such a good time making me feel nice, you forgot to get to the Main Stage for Zoe. You and i have some laughs and get a lemonade for our walk over to the Sahara for the second shot. The group assembled there are in such a state of ectasy to see you, they all pick you up and shout "Hip, hip, HOORAY!" as they toss your giggling self in the air over and over. John Waters is amused by this and cast you in his next movie.

If there is no art by 2PM, Saturday, just group up about 100 feet from the Sahara front entrance.

Unbelievable! We actually made it to both shots! And immediately afterwards, you could see a very exhausted couple slithering back to get more rest at the campground...Thank you Mike for taking that time out of your day, and thanks to Dani for allowing it! For the first one, we arrived to find there were no bleachers at the Outdoor stage, so we weren't sure it was gonna happen. Lo and behold, along came a clean shaven guy carting around as much camera gear as as we had camping gear.

If anything, the small first group then moved across the field for the 2nd shot, and I think being in a pack of members made it easier for the 2nd group to hookup among all the others for that 2nd shot. Considering the crowd size and holdups getting in to the fest, or the music conflicts, we still managed to have quite afew there to meet for the pic, so consider it a success, Mike!

BTW...All I have to say is you guys are a whole lot cuter in person than behind a monitor, and it was a pleasure to meet you!

Please start calling them out or identifying yourselves. i will add them to the quote above and then to the original post.

I like that Suffacated thinks people didn't show up because they are "scared" of him.

26 and 27 are TheClares. 26 (Paul) is actually the only one who posts, but the name was always intended to reflect that both of us would be going. 27 is my wife (Kim). It was great meeting so many of you, even if I couldn't always hear who you were due to the Sahara proximity.

not my most flattering moment.

I look like The Joker & Tommy looks like he's on day release from the mental hospital. Husband looks damn foxy, though.

She told me she's on the board, but that she's barely posted. She was one of Feather's friends. Nice chick, but she freaked out when she lost her makeup bag and wandered off to find it during Gorillaz.

And, yeah, that was the girl with the pasties.
