    Default Things I Was Right About

    1. Aphex Twin was a lot of self-indulgent IDM jerking off with pretty lasers.
    2. Fatboy Slim was both late and shitty big beat garbage done completely hacky and sad.
    3. Portishead fucking killed everything.
    4. Prince is the single most badass motherfucker on earth.
    5. Gogol Bordello was basically annoying.
    6. MGMT owned.




    Things I was not right about:
    1. Roger Waters--Coachella jumped the shark pretty hard there.

    You suck balls. Any chance you got a good far back tape of Justice instead, with the sky?

    Or Portis. That would work too.

    Just when the songs would get people moving, they would drop it and make the song un danceable. I really tried to like it but was annoyed.

    Roger Waters was boring but the visuals were cool.

    I can't get over how good The Verve were. And I wish I could have watched all of My Morning Jacket, but Love and Rockets justified my decision to leave.

    gee, I never would see myself agreeing with Randy...but i'm with him on 5 and 6.

    also, was anyone unwhelmed by chromeo?? i was so upset they sucked.
    but justice pwned. you had to be inside the mix to appreciate it. and what's this about dropping the beat? dude, they're such cockteases in that respect, and that's why everyone went apeshit over them. you take away that hard bass for a while, then bring it back full force. WHAM.

    I thought about you Randy during Roger Water's set when they showed all of those different colored pills raining over the earth.
    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.

    Sucking Justice's dicks needs to stop. They are fun and nothing more. Simian Mobile Disco destroyed them.

    didn't kraftwerk do that too???


    and....SMD did own...but justice kicked their asses, and rightfully so.

    looking up at the tent and seeing their shadows dancing around was the trippiest thing EVER.

    3 and 4 I agree for sure. Not to say some of the others I do or dont though.


    Justice slayed, added some new light sequences and made their set shorter but still killed. SMD made Chromeo look lame lame lame. I think people wouldve thought twice about who was better if Justice had to follow SMD. They couldve turned it up just a bit, but Im not complaining.

    Hah! I said the same thing. Chromeo was....well, they sucked. Every other second, they're remind us that they're "called Chromeo." I know your name! Fuck, I wouldn't be here if I didn't!

    SMD's round stage kicked...and the live synth during...Was it during "Hustler"?? I dunno...But I remember a lick being played live and it rocked.

    One thing that was weird about SMD was they always seemed one beat off in dropping back in. Maybe I was just out of it or something. But it always seemed that way to me.

    Their live show is so formulaic that it isn't even funny.

    Chromeo was a lot of fun. Maybe if you're not a fan of their music you could say they sucked, but if you like their music, there's no way you couldn't like last night's show.

    that was an odd slot for chromeo to play. i think ideally it would have went chromeo > modeselektor > SMD > Justice

    if chromeo would have started that little binge off i think a lot more people would have been into the tunes...

    Chromeo was a nice excuseto leave Sahara, watch some of Dark Side and return to 2 songs of them and then Justice coming to melt faces.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Roger Waters. What was your complaint, Randy?

    I did as well, even though the visuals were a little overcompensating.

    SMD > Justice

    They just seriously went apebeserkshit up there. They came in, hit hard for an hour, and got the fuck out. Perfect set.

    Had SMD played I Believe?

    SMD>>>>>>>Justice

    It was my first time seeing Justice and I was blown away by it. Not the best show of the festival (which isn't a bad thing considering just how many fucking amazing shows there were) but clearly in my top 5 or 10 shows of the weekend.

    I definitely made the right decision to stick through all of DARK SIDE OF THE FUCKING MOON instead of Chromeo... But I don't think the negative reviews of their Coach show will deter me from seeing them live in the future.

    Also, Randy's right about MGMT. Kickass show they put on this weekend.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014
