    I stood behind a man in the Sahara during Chemical Brothers who was about 7 feet tall. Even the waistband on his underwear was taller than the average waistband. I wish I had taken a picture.

    Hahaha, this was my story, although I couldn't remember which act it was during.

    Yeah, he fucking faceplanted, just like that. Everyone got the FUCK out of the way when he jumped.

    Also, this chick was acting stupid during Blitzen Trapper on her BF's shoulders. He went to put her down, I looked away, and then heard this HUGE THUD (and that's saying something, as BT was loud as fuck) and she had fucking fallen off his shoulders and faceplanted so gooddamn hard. He was trying to omfort her, it was clearly an accident, but she was RIPPED, like hitting him and stuff. DRAMZ!

    Some kid hops the fence runs past security and climbs on stage and
    dances around for a few seconds.

    Before security could catch him he dives back into the crows (swan dive style)

    I assume he was hoping people would catch him and he would crowd suft away from security.

    No one caught him.

    Ouch, I thought.

    During Paul some surly but funny kids behind us:
    - Paul was telling a story of his life as a young man in Liverpool and they start saying ,"We've heard this one already". In response to Paul saying he has a new album ,"We hate new albums".

    - While people watching, sitting in traffic coming in we saw a cute girl that was a spitting image of a 'chubby Phoebe Cates', which became part of a game, make up band names for 1:00 Gobi

    -Random girl grabing my face and 'frisking' me as she pulls out a map and starts asking me about set times

    -My buddy getting high, looking through a pair of Kaledescope glasses we had and giggling for 30 min straight during Ghostland

    - A guy with a message 'My Bloody Fucking Valentine' scrolling on his IPOD he kept holding up during MBV, really nice guy, after telling me he's on the message boards he got sad, clammed up and said people didn't like him cause of what he said about Prince.

    the conversation between the fleet foxes' drummer and some people up front, he said some stuff about beer and that "i love you" was not an appropiate response..

    I was in the med-tent for a debilitating nosebleed when the cops came in with a guy tripping balls on acid. They were asking him a bunch of questions and he was completely unaware of most of it.

    They asked him: "Are you on any medications?"
    he replied: LSD!

    It was awesome.

    I separated from my friends to watch Jenny Lewis. They wanted to watch the Chemical Bros. Anyway, I was sitting near the Outdoor Theatre, waiting for Jenny to start. A couple was standing over me talking. The guy says "So you want to just stay here?". She replies "No. This is chick music." Made me feel good. Thanks cunt.

    -On saturday, my camping group and myself headed out to the parking lot at about Noon or 1ish and promptly drank everything in sight. I shotgunned many PBR's and downed about 3 jello shots which we bought from a couple of strange dudes in the parking lot. (More on them later) I got nice and drunk. We head back to the tents and I decide to drink some sort of crown royal concoction. I was feeling pretty damn good. We all agree that its time to head into the festival. On the way I decided to stop off and piss in between some tents. This is where it starts to get real fuzzy. I dont remember anything after that besides a little bit of walking in between the palm trees at the entrance. Next thing I know Im waking up in my buddies tent, halfway in and halfway out. Its dark now and I had a horrible headache and was very confused and still somewhat drunk. I couldnt see straight and fumbled around in the dark with my tent zipper for a good 15 minutes. Finally got it open, was hoping to find some Advil. Remembered that I had left it in my truck in the parking lot. Figured I was screwed and tried to sleep it off. What I failed to remember was that I had some Aleve in my shaving kit. FAIL. Come to find out next morning from my friends that I was having a good time, laying in the sun with one hand in the air keeping beat with Spearhead at the main stage. I got drug by my foot while I was passed out and somebody clapped my hands for me. I regret not getting to enjoy the Sahara on Saturday night but thats a great war story for me.








    -the creepy dudes in the camping parking lot selling Jello Shots. One was wearing a Dave Mathews Band shirt. The other must have been a product of incest, and he had what can only be described as splinters of teeth left in his mouth. Meth is a helluva drug.

    -quotes from the weekend.
    -"theres puke in my mouth and its not mine."

    - the gay guys staying across from us saying "Butt Sex!"

    -guy 1 "i was at *buraka som sistema* and they had the crowd....
    guy 2 "who?"
    guy 1 "uhh buraka som sistema"
    guy 2 "bless you"
    guy 1 "wow, way to whip that out way to late"


    -"Thom Yorke at the Gobi, 8 oClock"

    -The absolutely medicinal Arnold Palmer from the Spicy Pie stand in the campground.

    -The baggy full of pure molly

    -The hash krispies

    -LEROYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!

    -The guy in the campground yelling "Fuuck Paul McCartneeyyyyyy!"

    umm, overkill? why would you drink that much at that time of the day? so not worth it.

    Shit, I was right there. Were you the guy right in front with your girl/wife/sister/whatever that was about 10 seconds away from kicking his ass? Or just some other dude that got R Kelly'd?

    Those fuckers were annoying as shit. Especially the fat friend who kept talking about how "chill" I was because I didn't yell at him to shut the fuck up, but explained that if "nothing happened" like he said, he'd have no reason to be incessantly babbling about WHAMBULANCES and shit.

    -While dancing up a storm, front and center during the bloody beetroots, I saw greenman crowd surf right up to where I was. I then started to help him back up while screaming "get this fucker on stage!!!"

    Sadly he didn't get up there. But later he said that he had crowd surfed all around the sahara and had a crazy time.

    -after separating from my friends on friday to see girl talk and the presets, I went to catch the second half of macca's set. Sitting by myself listening was awesome but then I randomly ran into one of my friends. Out of sooo many people! They lead me back to our group of friends and we got there right as fireworks went off it was amazing haha

    Good job idiot you deserve not remembering the fun you were having, why?....... If I ever saw anyone pissing on my tent or next to me in a crowd you'd regret being you at that moment.


    EDIT: ohhh i didn't notice your from Bakersfield, it makes more sense now.

    No.. No I wouldnt regret being me, if youre the type of clown who would try and fight somebody at Coachella, then you are the type of person that nobody wants at Coachella. Somebody pissing in a crowd at Coachella is much more acceptable then starting a fight, are you some kinda "BRO" or what? LMAO.. Go be an e-thug elsewhere, youre a joke.

    In addition, I didnt piss ON a tent you dolt. ARE YOU ILLITERATE ?!?! Try sounding it out... "..in between some tents.." Im not a dick so try again there little guy. Oh and well done on the Bakersfield comment, you can stereotype and cast aspersions, BRAVO!........twit.

    Actually, I'm pretty sure pissing in a crowd where a good percentage of the people walk barefoot and/or with minimal foot coverage and someone starting a fight are both on somewhat level playing fields. Both are asshole moves. No one wants either of these types there.

    Seriously.

    You are fucking retarded, what's wrong with y . . . oh wait, you're from Bakersfield, nevermind. I know you live in the shit middle of nowhere, but that's no excuse to piss in between the tents where people sleep. Please get killed before next year.

    E-thug WTF!!! nonono you got me all wrong, what I said is justified, now I know a festival the size of Coachella there is bound to be some pissing going on, vomiting, and so on but if you piss okay go off to an area where there isn't much people or in a bottle, but not on a fucking tent or in between a tent thats not even yours what the fuck is that shit idiot let me go piss around you fucker, you sound like the "bro" type bro. Im just about having the greatest time ever at the fest as I do every year, never have no problems. If I saw you or someone doing that id get pissed most likely call person out on it and either a) piss back on them or b) spit on person then id just take it from there and see what happens.
