    The art this year is going to eclipse all past years, from what I understand. Like, exponentially.

    wow, that appears to be this years official smoke spot.

    I also hope they bring back that tunnel thing that gets smaller and smaller as you go around. I felt like I was 5 years old on a jungle gym. I have no idea why I liked that as much as I did
    Then I will hold you down and spit her percolations all over you until you're as greasy as the day she regrets pushing your big fat ass out her big fat cunt.

    Indeed you are mistaken. It was placed somewhere between the Man and Center Camp... if I remember correctly.

    You could climb it at Burning Man... so unless there are more liability issues at Coachella you should be able to get up in there.

    There are also a lot more people at Coachella so it might be a clown show.

    Yeah! The Ammonite or Nautilus. We helped the crazy German artists put it together at Burning Man 2000. At night we went out to light candles to put inside and the guys drove us into it... until the antenna started thwacking the support bars.

    anybody want to tell me how to do multiple quotes in one post?

    I loved that train, whistle and all. I seem to recall someone on the main stage commenting on the whistle too.

    There better be a steam-powered bird's nest with some steam birds up in that bitch.

    Don't tease me like that, you know.. I've always wanted to see steam birds.

    I need to check out much more art this year, and I'll probably start with this.

    Yeah, for those who didn't like the train, this will probably be more annoying, only because if I remember correctly (it was BM, after all) the sound is controlled via levers by visitors who climb up into it. The sound is loud, morose, and haunting. You could hear it for miles across the playa. As long as there is enough steam, it can be sounded at any time. At BM, all the decor details were set about like a house, not welded down and surprisingly intricate. I imagine that will have to change if they let anyone inside at Coachy, 'cause the psychological atmosphere is a wee bit different. So, the aesthetic will no doubt be a little different from the inside than it was on the playa...
