    Default I Got to Meet Paul Tollet.

    Ok, don't know where to post this, so I figured I'd just make a thread (others can share their stories if they ran into him too - I know he was on the Express train).

    Anyway, I saw Paul walk to the outside of the Gobi tent right before Sean Penn. I was throwing away a bottle of Gatorade and noticed him and was like "hey omg that's paul". So I decided to go bug him....I ran up to him, asked if he was Paul and introduced myself. I told him I was on his message board, named menik/erik, and was the big Boards of Canada fan...I think he said something like "oh yeah I know you"...he then commented on my shirt saying he loved it, and then we took a couple pictures together, and then said he had to go back to the backstage area at the Gobi, but before he disappeared, I made my plea/request to him for getting BoC in 2009, and he laughed and said we'll try or something like that. It was so awesome, definitely one of the highlights of the whole weekend for me. He really seems like a cool, mellow guy....so if you ever read this Paul, again it was cool meeting you. Thanks for putting this whole thing together for us!

    Dude, if you just scored us BOC for 2009, everyone on this board should change our avatars to pictures of you next year.
    For your health

    I will do it and encourage others to do so as well. I would love to see BoC at Coachella next year. If you're reading this Paul, a lot of others share this opinion, I'm sure.

    I think the smiley face you drew on your shirt is the best part of this picture.

    I met Perry Farrell too, and got his autograph on a Coachella booklet. I also saw Busy P and Justice backstage on Friday I think, they were like 2 feet from me eating a burrito, but I'm not a fan and didn't care to say hi. I saw Red Kross backstage and told the drummer 'great show' and he said thanks to me, that was cool. And yeah, I got to watch the Breeders on stage with JustSteve, that was really cool too, and I saw but this thread isn't about that I think. But great times all around.
