    Just 2011 and 2012. Although this year had more stuff that I liked on paper, 2011 was more about discovery which made for a better experience. I bought my ticket and made plans to go 3 days before the fest, so I had no time to research bands or much of anything else. Ended up having a great time. Also I must have aged a lot in the last year or something but I felt tired constantly this year.

    Sigh, the mistakes of a 13 year old boy I came up with the username 12 years ago and thought it was so cool. I liked the hot/cold dichotomy and thought "Hotshot" was just a great word. I have a bad habit of signing up with this nickname on forums when I only intend to hang out for a post or two, and then occasionally I end up sticking around and I'm cursed with this atrocity.

    4. wmgaretjax - knows a lot about experimental music, I want to dig in his collection
    5. Robin - so she can get drunk and tell me the cruel cruel truths about what I'm doing wrong with my life.
    6. Mugwog - I find him very entertaining on the boards, surely he must be similarly entertaining in person
    7. TallGuyCM - he lives in the same area as me. would be cool to find a fellow music nerd in my neighborhood

    Paul, If you saw a bank robbery happen and right before the robber got caught you saw him ditch 50,000 dollars. You were the only person to see this. Would you turn the money in or keep it for yourself?

    I just try to be kind, honest, helpful, loyal, and reliable. I don't subscribe to any specific philosophy or theology other than that.

    Your openness is refreshing.
    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.

Chicks dig that shit, IcyHotshot.
    So, anyway... My question to you includes a video demonstration. Since it sounds like you truly are a music nerd, I'm certain you've been exposed to some Pink Floyd in your mere 25 years. (Typing that just made me realize something else... you're exactly 1/2 my age! fuck.) And, I'm sure you're familiar with Pink Floyd's: The Wall. After watching this video demonstration, please tell us what it means or represents to you. Perhaps it reminds you of something you've seen maybe not in person, but oh...in film, or magazine.




    Just fucking watch the show like the rest of us

    Anything is possible if you can take a shot to the tonsils.

    You act like having an elephant is a bad thing. I would be psyched if someone left an elephant in my backyard. I would immediately try to ride him and be friends. If anyone has a spare elephant, you know where to send it.

    I don't watch movies often, and when I do I like them to have an emotional impact. I love Shutter Island, The Pianist, and A Beautiful Mind.

    Thanks! Check out some current modern classical composers. Start with Nils Frahm's Felt from last year, and if you like that, I have more suggestions.

    Tell us about some thoughts that have run through your head that have profoundly disturbed you.

    What do you consider the most selfless act you've ever committed was? Most cruel?

    What is your best case scenario for your life at age 60?

    1. I was really sleep deprived once (had slept little to none at all for two weeks) and started feeling paranoid, thought people were spying on me, it was pretty disturbing. Slept a lot for a couple days and was fine again.

    2 Most selfless: stepping aside for a friend to go after a girl we both really liked. They're still together. Most cruel: A girl I had been close to the first two years of high school but ended up hating for some dumb dramatic reason that I have since forgotten and I'm sure made no sense tried to make peace at prom by saying I looked nice and I said something like "No one asked you" - this made her cry at prom. Fast forward 8 years and she's my closest female friend now, so things are all good.

    3. Close to being able to retire, if I've had any kids they are by this time self-sufficient, or if I'm single I'll have plenty of hobbies to keep me occupied.

    If you became an animal for the rest of that animals expected life which animal would you become and why? What positives do you see in living as that animal? Please specify breed/location ie bear in china or bear in north america. You may assume you keep your human intellect but wont be able to do things outside of that breed's capabilities like talk.

    IceyHotshot, Ionesco once famously said that boredom is a symptom of security. You seem like a guy who is very careful in planning your life and choosing secure routes. What do you do to spice things up when life begins to feel rote?

    Usually that's when I decide to travel somewhere or go on an unplanned roadtrip. This is basically what I did when I went to Coachella the first time (bought a pass on CL, went three days later).

    I'm going to assume the questions for me are over and since it will be harder for me to do this at work tomorrow, I will now select greghead for the next member of the week.

    Greg, in terms of LP purchases, what was the best score you ever had? Can be a single LP or a particularly good day where you got a good batch of stuff. Provide details on location, items you got, and a rough comparison of how much you paid versus how much it/they usually go for.

    Also, what is your best Coachella-related memory?

    The best score was a lot of 250+ LPs I bought on Craigslist for $20 from a retired fire fighter named Lonnie in Burlingame, CA. Range from old Victrola 78s, to pristine classical records from the 50s and 60s (mostly Angel records), and a ton of 60s, 70s, 80s rock. 8 Dylan records. Good Dylan. Really too much stuff to recount. I kept most of it, made about $60 profit trading the chaff in at various record stores. The whole collection was probably worth around $800. Another time I got a '48 Charlie Parker record for $5. Had Max Roach and Miles Davis playing with him. I never play it.

    My best Coachella-related memory has to be my first Coachella memory in 2005. First year we parked next to the owners and operators of Ballast Point brewery. They showed up with six 5-gallon kegs of beer, great food, and a bunch of potent weed. Very nice, generous people. Clued me into what Coachella was really about as we ate, drank, and talked about music.

    Jesus, Hannah. Let me think on that one.

    Reality television. Not horrible reality television but design shows and clothes shows and shit. I like to watch people execute an artistic vision and make something I never could. I also like "Ice Loves Coco," but I only watch when Jennie already has it on. It's good, I swear.

    The largest tip I ever witnessed was $500 for holding a motorcycle helmet while the guest had dinner at the resort. The largest I ever received was $200 from the bassist of the Black Crowes. I recognized him and told him I hope their current hiatus isn't permanent (it was on the night of their last show). When he checked out he left a note explaining that he recognized the "heart" emanating from me and blah blah hippie stuff. Nice guy.

    If I told you, it wouldn't be hidden.

    My parents always played a lot of music around the house and my mom often sang (and still sings) Beach Boys, the Doors, Dylan, and the Beatles when cleaning or just putzing around. The first song she sang to each of her kids was "Barbara Ann." She tells people this. I really got turned on the first time I heard "Sloop John B" on the Forrest Gump soundtrack when I was 11. I couldn't figure out how it could sound so good.
