Girl Next to me on acid at Gorillaz- "There are no solids anymore! Everything has turned to Noodles!!!!!" hahahaha by far the funniest thing I heard all weekend
I saw Vinny Chase smoking a J as I was leaving the XX. We made eye contact which was a little gay, but in a seriously good way
it was sometime saturday in the sahara, during bassnectar i think and i saw jesus walking thru the crowd and my friend asked me who that was i just said, that was jesus dude! my friend looked up and saw jesus walking away and started cracking up
the music is what its all about, you love it just like i love it.
YES!!!! i was crackin up so hard when i saw him
the music is what its all about, you love it just like i love it.
Around the same time Jesus made the 2nd coming there was this guy and his air-mattress. I believe it was during Benny Benassi's set.
When I held that gun in my hand, I felt a surge of power…like God must feel when he’s holding a gun.
Air mattress guy in action.
So my friends and I are sitting by our car after on Sunday night. A drunken Aussie making a motion like he has a radar "pulling people over" as they were walking by Sunday night. He would stop groups and yell out "WE HAVE RULES!!!" It looked like he was roaming around filming with an old school movie camera. Then we realized he was giving people walking by speeding tickets.
one of my friends dance'n at Bassface in camp , and started to do this wind mill dance , not knowing some girl behind him was closing in on him to dance , next thing i know his hand goes back and lands right on her tit . the look on his face was priceless ! she was cool about it , but he was freaked out , cuz he was trip'n hard , and the element of surprise just freaked him out i guess . i will never forget that look on his face ! i wish i had a pic of it .
INTENSE REALITY OF A DREAM
I was in between the Sahara and mojave tent, and two Australians with crazy hair came up to me. One of them had a bag of white powder in their hand and they said "dip your finger in this mate!" The look on their faces was if they had just discovered the most magical drug ever, and they wanted everyone at Coachella to try it
a few awesome things -
one chick was TRIPPING FACE during bassnectar, just standing around and staring into the face of everyone around her as if they couldn't see her. it's like she was trying to see into everyone's soul. anyway she was fascinated by the most mundane shit and then best part, a guy dressed like Jesus, beard thorns robe and all spots her, walks up to her and she straight LOSES it. like mouth agape, speechless. she turns to her friend who is rocking out to the bass and in that moment Jesus ducks down and books it, while shes yelling "I JUST SAW JESUS OMIGOD I SAW JESUS "... her friend (who didn't seem to be tripping, just rolling) looks at her like she's crazy... it was incredibly funny and everyone around her is giving her looks like "i dont know what you're on about"... she's definitely gonna remember her personal encounter with Jesus for a while
sunday night after gorillaz we didn't want to stop partying so we were just walking around the campgrounds... came across this limbo party it was just the most random shit. there was this hot ass chick in a white dress doing limbo but she was wearing a HUGE bear head... another chick in what looked like a purple teletubby costume, a guy in a zebra fur jacket... just doing limbo over and over again while people in a circle were hooting and cheering them on
we got bored of that pretty quickly and luckily this guy was walking around leading a mobile dance party holding up an amp blasting electro house and going through the campgrounds with everyone following him yelling AIN'T NO PARTY LIKE A COACHELLA PARTY CAUSE A COACHELLA PARTY DON'T STOP... the security busted him but that went on for a good 30 minutes
right before bassnectar this kid was definitely on multiple drugs bouncing in place furiously playing air guitar and yelling "YES THE BLACK KEYS ARE COMING THE BLACK FUCKING KEYS"... no one had the heart to tell him that was last year. would've loved to see his reaction when Lorin popped up on stage
the kid who kept saying "i'm from arizona... is phoenix from arizona? are they from AZ? i'm from arizona"
so many more that i can't remember... god i miss it
I have it. I hold it close and have it everyday.
"Fuck tomorrow we all have to work."
random black dude as people exited the polo fields on sunday
I'ma ball at the mall shuttin' down the sea wall
Funniest thing i think i came upon this year was the sunday night cap grounds. We had a group a few tents down dancing in anEZ-up, under one of those spinning flashing balls. Every time it would start to spin and flash everyone in the tent (clearly tripping) would put their hands up and go WoooOOOOOOOO!!!!!! I heard this for a good hour.
Hmmm.. a couple to share (WARNING: may be offensive to many)
Some of us were sitting in our camp drinking and what not during sunset and I look over and see a guy in the walkway catcalling some girls. He basically says some stuff about them having nice tits and that they should come back to his tent. When they told him to toss off, he shrugged it off and said, "Yeah, well whatever. 2012 BOOM!" and gestured his hands up in an explosion. I don't know how it sounds here in writing but I was laughing my ass off at the time.
Another time this chick comes up and is chilling on the couch with us while we drink before we go in and she is there for quite a while. She's hanging out and going on about how she didn't get a bracelet and asking us to take ours off and slide it on her wrist and what not (yeah, right...). She's not bad overall but starts to get a little annoying. Anyways, I get pretty plowed after a bit and start in on the telling filthy jokes (you know, babies and what not) and she (after 3 or 4 of these mind you) proceeds to go off on this rant about how dead baby jokes are sick and she can't stand hearing them and we should tell jokes about dead raccoons or something instead. So I calmly listen to her finish and then start into the following joke:
"What's 12 inches long, purple, and makes a chick cry?"
"A SIDS raccoon!"
Hysterical laughing ensued and she got up and left. Good times....
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched moonbeams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in the rain...
Just watching the bassists for Jet's Overhead during their entire set. He was just so happy.
Kind of a scrawny lone-wolf kid casually sauntered up to me Sunday night in the campground and asked, "You wouldn't happen to have any pharmaceutical drugs would you?" in a very proper way, I replied, "I have insulin if you want to go into a coma?" His face lit up when I said "I have" and then it was just disappointment from then on. He just walked away.
Turning around to have Hotshot following me. He'd move his head around and whistle when I looked at him.
People watching - behind the oragami I see a guy running around in circles and acting REAL random. He sees 3 guys playing frisbee and he wants to get involved....no big deal right....funny thing was he started acting like a dog. LOL
He got on all fours in front of the guy with the frisbee and started barking....the guy was looking at him 'what's up with you' and tosses the frisbee to his bud. The guy goes on all fours...fast....to the other guy. They tossed the frisbee for a good 4-5 minutes while this guy did this dog routine.
He finally snapped out of it...got up...and walked away like nothing took place.
Laughed my ass off!!!
Really? Y'all are that fucking fixated on an UPPER LIP???? Like she's got a cleft palate or something? Like you all wouldn't crawl on broken glass to get with her?? Seriously STFU.
I would never want to belong to any club that would have someone like me for a member...
