    Default For those new to this board and considering Coachella 2008

    Don't be put off by the posts here. I've been to Coachella twice and been an infrequent visitor to this Board for a few years and the asshole ratio is easily 50:1 (online compared to onsite).

    Some people seem to live here and thrive on insulting those that don't but are looking for info. There's an expectation that you have the time to dive through dozens and dozens of threads and weed out all the fake rumours/info before posting.

    The level of humour is incredibly low brow in general. You'd think you were on an Ozzfest message board most of the time.

    But don't let it put you off. Both times I've gone (2004 and 2007) I had a great time and found people to be fun, helpful and interesting. Going to Coachella is a fantastic experience that is far greater than the sum of the bands playing. It's just too bad that isn't mirrored in the majority of the posts on this board.

    It is the internet, get over it. Obviously, people are going to be more of an ass on the internet where they are anonymous. If anyone takes anything negative on this message board or any other message board seriously they are an idiot. Besides, this board is very, very tame compared to others.

    I'm taking it as a hint Val Kilmer is headlining.

    Leave it to a fucking Canadian.

    I'm new to the internets. I had no idea that people are nicer in person. I figured Coachella was a bunch of raging lunatics yelling at eachother and fighting nonstop all day and all night and bitching over and over and spitting on people.

    shut up....stay in canada you douchenozzle.

    obviously you didn't see all the lame rage threads last year. the board was awesome until the lineup was released.

    Who creates a post to apolgize to new new board members when the same person has only 100 posts in a 1 year period?

    You sir, either your are an asshole or someone who has several mannequins and PCs in your parent’s house.
    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.
