    Default Anybody chasing the high?

    I'm in denial. I just want to party. I can't wait a whole year for Coachella to come back. Sure, I got the Police to watch next month, but thats nothing like a festival.

    Thinking about Sasquatch, or that festival @ Golden Gate Park in San Fran. Does anybody have any experience with either of these two festivals?

    Yeah, still kind of bummed, and not getting enough work done at work because of it. Oh well, maybe time to start planning for next year.

    The pain of no Coachella is hitting me hard this year. I smile listening to all these bands that I love even more after seeing them live though.

    I want to try to get to that Cut/Cupy show.

    Man, it's bad. To make matters worse, a good friend of mine died in a car accident Tuesday, and the girl I was seeing told me she doesn't have time for me anymore because she's training for some kind of fitness contest. I miss Coachella.

    It feels like being kicked out of my own 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.

    Do any of you feel like an employee of Goldenvoice? People at work and friends aren't just asking how things went, they are asking with this seriousness like I'm being quoted for the media.

    I walk away from coachella each year feeling like I did the day after christmas every year as a little kid. very happy -- but also really depressed that it was so long until next year.

    this year we stayed an extra day at the house we rented. we spent the entire day in the pool, or bbqing poolside. that helped a LOT.

    but going back to work still sucks. thank god I'm on vacation again in two weeks.

    i was telling my friend we need to do this exact same thing next year, and take tuesday off also. an extra day to chill next to a pool in the desert, followed by an extra day to relax at home before work, i bet would make all the difference.

    I think i've been tired and depressed mostly due to the elevation change (Calgary is 3500 feet, indio is 0). It seems a little better today, though I'm still completely unproductive.

    oh and it does. I didnt like the idea at first, but I warmed up to it, and it made the transition SO much easier. instead of travelling sunday night/monday daytime, and arriving at work exhausted tuesday, I arrived very well rested wednesday.

    it's still boring though. :-( I still have my lineup poster (from the day it was initially released) posted in my cube. roll on 2009.

    after a really long plane trip back to sao paulo (like los angeles/chicago/sao paulo, 17h long, with a very fat and noisy guy snorting all the way at the seat next to mine) I got back to a 16ºC day, wich is very cold for me. slept for like 16 hours and yesterday evening it starts raining. and then it keeps raining all night long. I woke up and it's still raining. it's been raining hard, rain-forest style, for the last 36 hours, and looks like its going to be like this for the next 3 days.

    fresh food is already starting to rot because of humidity, going out of the house is a cold and wet adventure and it's my turn to look up for my son, since his father stood up to him when I was enjoying Coachella - that means lots of joy, because this kid is the light of my life, but also watching that Teenage Turtles movie he loves for the 89732987 time. and there’s no maconha, as we call it.

    oh, and sure, the “festival season” in Brazil is 4 or 5 months away and fujiya & miyagi is the only "headliner" announced until now, since Chromeo cancelation due to "visa problems" (ahã) has been announced this morning. sure we have good clubs, djs and stuff, but any good festival plan is like 8000 kilometers distance.

    how about that?

    smile everyone, you know.
    I couldn't have said it better... And I'm a writer, so that's actually kind of depressing! Seriously, though, I had a much easier time readjusting this year than I did last year. Probably because after spending so much time cavorting with the letter E last year, I spent four days an emotional wreck and crying at the most random things coming down. Bawling during American Idol is still something my fiance and I laugh our asses at from last year's "come down." This year was a bit easier in that regard. Also, Roger Waters was so damn special, it inspired me to come home and write, which gives me something I can go back to to remind myself of just how impacting this year really was. I truly think it is something that will inspire me for the year to come, and remind me what it is that I do love so much about music. Sometimes that's easy to lose touch with living in L.A.

    Thank you, Coachella.
