Now that's funny right there...
I was walking back to camp Saturday night weekend 1 and overheard a guy talking quite loudly to his buddy right in front of me.....
"So we were on the ferris wheel and right as it got to the top, this guy just starts pissing.... "
Saturday of weekend 1. It was funny to us so I'll share.
We were walking from the Gobi after the Buzzcocks to our locker when this guy walks right into me. It was really crowded and dusty so I stopped to let him go by, but he had a look on his face that made me ask him if he was OK. The following conversation took place:
Me: "Are you OK?"
Guy: "I am frying soooooo hard right now."
My husband: "Doesn't seem like a good place to be frying."
Guy: "Dude, it's Coachella, it's the BEST place."
Me: "No, I think he means right here where you're standing."
Guy: "Oh yeah. (looks around at all the people) Where am I anyways?"
Me: "Near the Gobi tent. Where do you want to be?"
Guy: "In my tent where I can trip."
Me: "OK, do you know where it is?"
Guy: "No, I have no idea where I am right now."
Me: "Why don't you follow us."
He went on to tell us how bad he was tripping, how pretty all the lights were, and that I should never take drugs. We walked him to the camping entrance, gave him some water, and sent him on his way to find his tent. Hope he found it.

I love hearing snippets of conversation as people walk by. Some good ones I can recall:
"I just want some real drugs!"
"So would you say that The OC is an accurate representation of where you live?"
"Waaaaay too fucking mellow" (walking out of Radiohead during Pyramid Song, suckers)
"You're the voice of our generation!" (Idiot shouting that when Jeff Mangum walked on stage, I'm sure other people heard it)
Guy walking around Lot 8 with a sign that said "Who pooped in our camp site?"
Saw that guy also
Felt terrible for the girl who stepped in it
guy talking to his buddy, looking at a radiohead shirt at the t-shirt shop: "oh dude, check it out, the deadmau5 mouse is on the back, i'm definitely buying it!"
Girl and friends waiting in line Friday morning outside shuttle entrance security check, watching the people getting patted down.
Girl's Friend, "Dang, that is a thorough search from the security, getting up in her vagina and shit."
Girl, "I hope my vagina gets touched this weekend."
Friends all turn to stare at girl
Girl, "Not from the security guards though"
I was leaving to go home last night (weekend 2, Sunday) and was walking under the "light changing" half dome thing that everyone kept walking under both weekends.
As I'm walking under the arch I passed some guy who's friend asked him a question. All I heard was, " what? I can't even think right now" as he says this a couple walks under the arch raising their arms all high as shit like special powers would be granted for lifting their arms.
That made me laugh on the spot
you are high as you can be if you your answer to a question is, "what? I can't even think right now"

So on Thursday night of Weekend 2, my buddy and I decided to wonder the campgrounds to see where all the fun was. As we were making our way through Lot 5, we see a guy and a girl underneath a canopy, doing what appeared to be spooning under a sleeping bag, right in plain sight. Then we saw the dude's hips were moving. They were gettin it on right in front of everyone, with no form of barrier set up on their canopy. The people staying in the spot behind them were just chillin in lawn chairs and drinking beer, so we cheered them on for a little and then kept on moving.
If you're under a sleeping bag, you're not in plain sight.
Girl sitting on the ground with who I assume to have been her boyfriend or something between gobi and outdoor looking completely happy with her pants around her ankles.
Pretty close to the front of the stage for Radiohead:
Bro (rolling hard) : Dude, who is this?!
Bro: (slurring): mmayb-ii-o-med?
Bro: Oh... (pause then turns back to me) Are they new?
Me: (facepalmed super hard)
BROCHELLA 4 LIFE
I want to say it was during Girl Talk when I glanced over at one of the screens and it was showing a close up of what I assumed was that dead baby on stick. The camera then panned out and the fucking thing was dancing, but like in a creepy, slow, zombie-like shuffle. It surprised the shit out of me and at that moment my friend noticed the same thing. We had a good laugh about what we just saw and that nobody else who we were with noticed it.
Oh, and an old dude wearing a shirt that said "Calm The Fuck Down". Normally I hate shirts that say things but I had a good laugh at this one.
To whomever whistled while I was changing from shorts to jeans at the locker out in the open: thanks, even if you didn't mean it.
The corn guy at the baked potato booth made me twirl and give him a hug before giving me my potato. Hope you find a nice ladyfriend. Sorry I couldn't tip because I was out of $$ by then.
'11, '12.1 coldchella
Do I need to take a fucking thumbprint to get geeked up.
I know most of these idiots are taking weak acid and taking one or two hits and landing on the moon.
I just wanna be a retard like the people in these stories...fahk
Waiting for Dre & Snoop Sunday night, my friend and I started talking to two cops in yellow POLICE vests:
Friend: "Do you work Coachella every year?"
Cop #1: "Yeah."
Cop #2, pointing to Cop #1: "He tasered the naked guy in 2009."
Sat in vomit right before Feist on the Outdoor stage. Simultaneously the most disgusting/funniest thing that's ever happened to me at Chella. When it happened I immediately sprang to my feet, swung my backpack off my back and tried to assess the damage/clean (while screaming like a crazy person). Saw how bad it really was (my entire fucking ass), so I made the executive decision to "ditch the shorts", dropped trou right there, and tossed them in the nearest trash can. Spent the rest of the night in just boxers hahaha, pretty airy/breezy night.
I'm proud to say he's my friend.
that impresses me
