    I never actually cried today, but I came pretty damn close a couple of times.

    FOI, that's some good advice. This weekend we are going up to Antelope Valley to see the poppies. Although right now, I'd like to break them down and shoot them in to my veins.

    Glad I'm not the only one feeling down. This was my first Coachella and me and my girl had such a great fucking time. Real life is a huge letdown compared to the high that Coachella was.

    I'm back in Calgary. It's cloudy and apparently going to snow tomorrow. Everything is brown. Nice to be back in my place, but I'm sooooo sad. Pemberton at least, I have this year. I sure hope the vibe is the same.

    All but Cut Copy, yes (sorry, but Apparat is pretty rare and I just caught Cut Copy at Coachella). After that, I am going to take it relatively easy (I hope).

    I think, all in all, we can be very thankful that we were able to go back to something after Coachella.

    Ben wasn't that lucky.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    Apparat, huh? Where are they playing? I haven't heard of them... i'll have to investigate.

    I gotta see Cut/Copy do their own set. They were just too entertaining at Coachella.

    There's a lot to look forward to, but it's just not quite the same as Coachella.

    aaahh, the good ole post-coachella depression...

    god damn that was one hell of a weekend. i usually start drinking on monday morning just to try to keep the party goin. i drank a little too much yesterday though, so had to take the day off today, when i should have been at work. its cool though, i slept till like 2pm, then been vegging all day. it helps a little, but still doesnt take away the depression. like calmerthanyou said though, even though im super bummed its over every year, i still have a bit of a glow around me for at least a week after, just cuz i keep remembering all the good times i had.

    now time to keep myself busy by lookin for bootlegs...

    i had a midterm today..failed miserably..

    there was a guy in front of me during roger waters who kept refering to coachella as disneyland (fantasy coachella land)

    it makes sense..

    Knitting Factory. It is the same night as Cut Copy, though. Definitely check out Apparat before you settle on Cut Copy. He is really amazing, and like I said, does not tour much at all.

    True, but what is? It gets you back into the swing of live music that is not back to back to back to etc. At least Sean Penn isn't going to show up to ruin your buzz, right? That's a positive!

    Last Year I was really Depressed but this year, 05 and 06 I felt I had gone to a show and gotten back home the same day. Thats how it felt for me.

    Yeah, my post-Coachella depression hit me big-time during the second half of my day. I was circling the drain..

    I came home tonight, began scanning through all my photos and videos from the past few days and now can't stop grinning from ear to ear. Awesome fucking weekend, I'm back to being rejuvenated.

    Yeah, drove back to Santa Barbara late Sunday night because I had scheduled a student teacher observation for 8 A.M. Monday. That was not one of my more brilliant decisions.

    The last two days have been filled with observations, interviews, and teaching. At least I have Lewis Black to look forward to this week, Elbow next week, and John Cleese the week after. It'll help me get through the month.

    seriously....today sucked of all sucks. WE got back pretty late last night, and all day today I couldn't quite focus. Between the news of ben (I work in healthcare-so it's always a lil tough, when someone passes) to the fact I hadn't got but more than 2 hours sleep between sun night and the drive home, and on the drive home, maybe 2 hours of jumpy sleep.

    It being my first coachella, I vote that there needs to be some kind of decompression fest, similar to the late-aug-to-early-sept ones that go on!!!

    I feel like too much of my life is spent anticipating, planning for and then remembering coachella. I need to find something/someone else that even remotely incites the same passion... it's kinda pathetic.

    Did you cry? Knowing that its all a homage to the late Syd Barret (original lead in floyd) makes it that much more emotional. i love that album, and have shed a tear many a time listening to it.
