    Talking How it Started Thread

    When and Why did you start posting here?


    I started posting here in early 2004 at the young age of 13. I was always lurking since the day I found out that the White Stripes would play coachella back in 03' when I was an obsessed fan. Anyways, I signed up when I heard all the rumours of the craziest fucking lineup that would become Coachella 2004.

    Post yours.

    I've been to every Coachella, but I didn't start up here until last year.

    And now there's no goin' back.

    I think I started posting because I wanted answers to camping questions that weren't covered by the FAQ.

    As soon as I asked, I got yelled at by people who pointed out that my questions had been asked and answered in other threads (that were, of course, buried by then, since it was shortly after the lineup was released).

    2007 was my first Coachella. I was going to go in 2001 but I couldn't get a ride. My life would have been very different if I had made it in 2001, in that I would have been to every year since then.

    You'll get used to it. Nobody is nice here. Only in person. Except for Jack.

    I started posting here because the tickets sold out and i was pissed.



    Then I realized you all needed me. It was love at first sight, erections all around.

    I would lurk just before the lineups would be announced. because while a lot of shit gets posted here, you can filter it out and get the accurate information as well. I don't remember when I started posting, or why. I think daft punk had something to do with it.

    I started posting here a couple of years ago because my therapist said it would be good for me to interact with other humans in order to get over my shyness. The project continues to this day...
    Lick an orange, it tastes like an orange. Lick a pineapple, it tastes like a pineapple. Go ahead, try it. Try some more. The strawberries taste like strawberries. The snozzberries taste like snozzberries! We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams. Come along, come along.

    I posted first in 04 as soon as Pixies were announced. I got into an argument with Carey12345 on old board which made me leave until 2005 lineup was announced. There, Pot started talking about Olivia Tremor Control, who I checked out as a result. Because of the musical recommendations I got from here, I've been on and off ever since. The past two summers I posted regularly because I finally had a reliable internet connection.

    It's tough love in this arena schatzi. People will eventually turn for the better if you keep at it.


    I started on this message board with the intent of being more aware of music.

    We attended 2001 to see and hear good music. You know how you can look at a movie listing and tell that the movie is a dud? It is also easy to see when something good is about to happen. I seen the listing of bands i.e. money that was being put into this event and knew that someone was serious about creating a festival.

    We walked out hopeful that whoever put the event together made enough money to do it again the following year.

    A problem started happening every year after that. I always had a great time but when reading the papers the next day, it always seemed like I missed specific highlights of the show i.e. Radiohead and Daft Punk.

    It's a long answer but it is what it is; I started posting on this board to avoid missing anymore highlights. It felt like time well invested this year when standing near right side of the stage for Justice.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I came here to find out more information about Coachella. Additions, set-times, camping info, general festival info, what bands I should check out, blah blah blah. '07 was my first year. I wanted to go in '05 and '06, but funds/school wouldnt allow it. I went to '07 and I decided there was NO WAY I am not going to '08.
    Why did I stay here though? Why did I stay here... hmmm... well, I am a music guy. Music is my thing. This is a board full of my people, people who love music in general. I love how people around here have incredibly diverse tastes in music though. Coachella is different for everybody. Im sure there are some people here, where we both saw completely different Coachellas. And there are others here, I was probably shoulder to shoulder with the whole time. I have just learned a lot about music since I have been here. Ive even met some of you now, and they have all been awesome. I look forward to meeting more too.
    It's a good place.

    Wow... that sounded so cheesy. I feel like I should go save children from a burning orphanage right now. brb.

    I did the same Josh.

    I signed up I think either a bit before or after the lineup was released, to find out who was rumored and find out about the additions, cause I heard Daft Punk and Massive Attack were added later, so I was expecting some big names...that never happened in 2007. Ill def be going back to Coachella every year no matter what. It was such an amazing experience.
    Upcoming Shows:
    Kasabian/Bo Ningen: 10/1 @ Metro
    Coachella: 4/10-12 @ Empire Polo Fields

    Went to 04, 05, 06 and music god willing 07...for 06 I wanted to optimize my coachella weekend and started checking the board out...message boards were new to me and at that point had only frequented one other board so the peepz here totally abused me, schooled me and to a degree nurture me...

    I love coachella, the board and all the wit that makes it what it is!!!

    is this what an AA meeting feels like???
