    Default Did you get PCD when you returned from Coachella?

    The bland office walls.
    The quiet cubicle.

    I had post-Coachella Depression (otherwise known as "PCD") for a few days after the festival - the only thing that helped were copious listenings of the most recent Portishead album.

    Anyone else find returning to your normal, non-musical life, a total suckfest?

    Is a non-musical life normal?
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    Wonder if my boss would let me paste a collage of all my coachella pics up in the corner above my computer? That might help.
    I don't have anything clever to say right now.

    I actually got quite the contrary, which i've posted somewhere else....I actually had PRE coachella depression/angst, and when i got back i felt on top of the world...almost like i was let in on a little secret that no one else knew about...and it coursed through my veins like pure bliss.

    Ugh...YES. I made a Coachella 2008 playlist for my ipod, but it wasn't quite the same.

    Yes, had a serious case of PCD
    Decided to go to Lolla and recapture the spirit but if the message board is indicative of the experience....it prolly won't happen. At least it will be 3 more days of music though!!!

    5 years of PCD is breaking my heart.

    It almost isn't worth it to go and have it all taken away

    I had it for about a week, but I'm over it now... The thing is, I still think about the festival daily, it just doesn't depress me like it did for about a week afterward.

    I think what helped, is I'm a huge horse racing fan, and the Kentucky Derby is the weekend after Coachella. So the elation of watching Big Brown dominate and the sadness of Eight Belles breaking down kinda made my thoughts go elsewhere.

    This was the first year of Coachella where my conciousness was permenantly expanded during the stay (we stay for about a week), and since then I have been left with a certain part of my brain WIDE OPEN and have been looking in all different directions for different things to occupy it. I would not say it resulted in PCD (which I have experienced), but in turn it created a hunger for knowledge and connections, which I think is the single most lacking thing in society today. Positive unobstructed connections.

    Man, I had post-Coachella depression for weeks! I'm still concentrated on it! I finally wrote up the best stories from this year's festival so I can share them with friends and relive them!

    Yes I did, it was rough, as was the stomach-sketchiness I brought back from Coachella.

    But really, I still want to go back to the desert.
