While she is not a stranger to psychs, she was absolutely sober for all three days - didn't drink a drop of booze, take a hit, absolutely nothing.

    Sometimes, salvation comes in strange forms. Sometimes it's in the form of a pulsing beat, pretty lights, and finally allowing yourself to experience unfiltered joy. So it's not hilarious or sad, it was a really important moment for her, and something that has stuck with her and enriched her as a person. And it's not the kind of thing that needs to be approved by some low, pathetic internet troll.


    Very awesome. I got a lifetime of therapy in one weekend at Coachella '12. May your wife continue to heal.

When at least 10 different dudes who walked back there for the trailers, but didn't want to wait in line for the portapotties, they all started peeing on the fences surrounding the trailers. This crazy yellow shirt chick kept screaming at all those dudes to stop but they would just flip her off while everyone booed this chick. Wanting to reassert her status as alpha-female, she disappeared behind an off-limits fence for about a minute, returned with a hose, and started soaking all the dudes trying to pee on the fences. She soaked about 20-30 dudes in about a minute. After all the guys had fled, she stood guard in a militant stance about 10 feet in front of the trailer, and just waited for the next wave of guys wanting to pee on the fences. None of these fucked up guys noticed her standing there brandishing her hose-cannon, and she would actually wait until a dude was already peeing (rather than a preemptive quick spray before they even started pissing) and then hose them down, giggling like the fat nazi cunt that she was. No, I did not get sprayed, but seriously, I don't think spraying down guys who have bladders about to burst is part of that cunt's job description. I can't think of a worse way to be super high on something just to immediately be brought down with a 10-second soaking by a hose.
    ahahahaha i was totally a part of this. gotta love herd mentality.

    I'm partly sure it was Muse, then again I'm partly sure it was LCD or Kanye.

    I think it was a black guy during LCD

    You are absolutely correct, Mugs

    http://www.coachella.com/forum/showt...light=fingered


    YEAH....this thread goes out to you .
    Your a fucking disgusting pile of shit .
    Here's the story . My friends and i got a sweet spot against the rail ( in the corner left side ) early in the day to post up for Jay Z , and to watch all the other great bands playing before . Two bitchy fat Mexican girls come over and wiggle their way in between us , and start making phone calls to their boyfriend ( lil black douche i will call him ) , so eventually lil black douche makes his way over , i see him stepping on people , shoving his way through the crowd , and just annoying the shit out of everyone to get to his fat girls . When he gets there ( right before LCD started ) hes right in front of my friend all grinding on his girl , then pulls out some lube , squirts it on his fingers , and sticks them in her ass . I could hear him say , " does it hurt , does it hurt " , and the whole time grinding away .
    Lil black douche and the fat mexi girls are prime example of what alot of people this year seem to be complaining about , or is just my bad luck that i had to experience that annoying sack of shit ?

    In 2012 I camped with a huge group (30+) of friends and coworkers which networked to people from LA, OC, Inland Empire, to San Diego. One night we were all hanging out, drinking, etc. to the point where someones music playing in the distance was that Big Sean song where it goes ASS ASS ASS ASS, and in our hammered state, we chant ASS ASS ASS ASS ASS ASS as loud as we can. And anything we found amusing ended up turning into an ASS chant.
    The next day we're at the water line between Mojave and Sahara when we overheard some people having a conversation about how tired they were and how they might take a nap because they were kept up by a bunch of people yelling ASS ASS ASS ASS all night.

    2013, Weekend 2, at the DoLab, I fell off the stage towards the crowd. Someone help my friends and I find a video or at least a picture of this so we can relive the hilarious event!

    2012 Weekend 2 two guys dressed up as mothra and godzilla were going around the campsite every night fighting and making some spot on noises. They weren't responding to anyone. Security was following them around for a while trying to get them to stop but the just kept on doing their thing.

    Weekend 1, in 2012. There was a big bamboo art structure next to the sahara tent, a guy started climbing up and of course gets noticed immediately and a crowd draws quick. He makes it up basically to the top and hangs out and is getting cheered upon and security is just waiting for him to come back down.. He nearly makes it to the bottom and then a bystander just walks up and tells him to go back up.. And the hippie started climbing up to the top again! Security was pissed but he kept getting cheered at..

    Then on his 2nd decent, a bamboo breaks off that he was holding on and he falls about 12ft.. Absolutely hilarious--->

    http://youtu.be/kF3X75mdvrY

    1:53 is when he goes back up again, and around 2:23 is when he falls.

    That guy was such an idiot. We were right there when it happened. My brother, a doctor, was going to go check on him, but security was there and Greg didn't want to get involved unless it was absolutely necessary.

    I was on the rail at Motorhead, when a fat guy pushes me so he could get the rail where I was. He says "I hope you don't mind me here, because I don't mind at all." A couple minutes later he turned to someone who was standing nearby and asked "Did you come all this way just for Coachella?"

    Prepare for a tl;dr

    During the Lana Del Rey wait, the crowd was a clusterfuck. This was the first crowd-push I felt all weekend. Just my luck, I had a pair of twatty lovebirds (SoCal douchebro and flower girl - surprise!) behind my buddy and me. They had just met at the fest, and I got to hear their entire getting-to-know-you-eye-rolling-vomitous-bullshit, but OH there were some gems:

    Douchebro: You're so beautiful, you're perfect!
    Flowergirl: You're pretty cute, too, I like your smile!
    DB: Oh, thanks! I'm actually pretty insecure about my teeth...
    FG: Yeah, one of them is crooked...

    *slurpalurplurplurp*

    DB: Oh my God, you're so beautiful!
    FG: Tell me about yourself, do you eat exotic foods?
    DB: Uhhhhhhhhhhhh...well I can't answer that, not off the top of my head anyway...
    FG: I'm tohhhhtally a foodie, so burgers and pizza all the time wouldn't do it for me.
    DB: Oh! No, I'm not about that at all! I...uh...I've had some deer before...and elk, too, I think.

    *slurpalurplurplurp*

    FG: What about your parents, are they still together?
    DB: No, my parents are divorced.
    FG: Oh, that's sad.
    DB: Yeah, my dad's been divorced 4 times and my mom's been divorced 3 times.
    FG: Oh! Ummm...
    DB: Are your parents still married?
    FG: Yeah...do you believe in divorce?
    DB: Do I believe in it? Oh, no, of course not!
    FG: (Silence)
    DB: Well, I mean, it's worked for my parents and they're both really happy since they've been divorced...



























    *slurpalurplurplurp*

    Addendum
    DB: What do you hate?
    FG: Snail drivers...and people who point, I can't stand them!
    DB: Yeah, right, they're the worst!

    On Friday I saw this guy fall off the medical cart... this may sound not funny, but he tumbled and landed like a cartoon character and left everyone in shock. There were two people in the cart that was carrying him (both sitting up front). I don't know why one of them wasn't securing him in the back. They picked him up, put him back in the cart and carried on.

    Last year, on Thursday after setting up camp we went to go check out the big light-up dome in the camping area- and some woman was staggering on the path nearby and fell over, very drunk. Some big dude comes up to her and just starts yelling at her, "IT'S DAY ZERO GIRL! IT'S FUCKING DAY ZERO"

    there was a guy crowd surfing during QOTSA and this big buff guy in front of me turns around and yells all excitedly "I want to do that!" looks at me and says "lift me up" (im a pretty small girl). i grab him around the stomach and pretend to throw him up. he goes "no no no, you have to lift from the legs." made me smile.

    also a girl pushing through the crowd before muse... "i'm going to the front and i'm not gonna be polite about it."

    some young rave girl to her friends, "omigod its the Muse crowd, we've got to get out of here." runs towards Skrillex.
