    Lets see: Other than the girl we came with getting arrested for being way too drunk in the camping line on thursday, I saw Stefan from Peachcake, the crazy fat guys in the astronaut costumes in the Sahara (I wish I got pics, they were pretty cool,) Some guy waking me up while I was sleeping somewhere, and he looked like he was tripping balls.

    Saturday night my boyfriend and I were smokin out way behind the sahara and we kept seeing groups of fucked up people walking around searching for the exit. A few people would say to their group "TRUST ME, it's over here!!!" pointing to the perimeter fence behind us. A couple minutes later they would return but we did see a few people go down there and know what they were doing, they hopped that bitch.

    The map showed an exit over there, was there not actually one to use?

    - On Sunday while I was putting things in my locker, I looked over to the other side of the Dome and see this guy who basically just ran past the front gates. Suddenly there's about 6 yellow-shirt staff guys chasing him and he's pretty far ahead of them until some black staff dude in hella good shape sees him coming his way. The guy got his ass tackled. One of the funniest things I saw all weekend.

    - Sitting in deadlock traffic on the way out Friday night, there's a dude in a red tracksuit thing dancing on top of his car. And after about 20 minutes of watching him dance, his friend dressed in all green joins him. It looked like Mario and Luigi dancing on top of a car. I have video that I'll probably upload sometime this weekend.

    - The all green zipper man. I high fived him on his way through the crowd in the Sahara Saturday and couldn't stop laughing at all of the WTF looks he was getting from people. Priceless.

    - The roll of toilet paper flying around in the Sahara and the dude with the horse on a stick.

    - Multiple times during the weekend I overheard people saying "Eww there's a tampon back here."

    - All of the dust penis drawings on the cars nearest to the fence on the way into the festival each day. I counted at least twenty, and there were a few occasional pussy/boobies drawings as well.

    Standing in line for the showers on Saturday morning my friend overheard this conversation:

    Random Girl 1: Paul McCartney is so weird.
    Random Girl 2: I KNOW!! He kept saying, "Coa-a-CHELLAAAAAaaaaaaaAAAaaa". He's so creepy.

    Not sure over-enunciating 'coachella' makes him inherently creepy - so it made us laugh.

    -some guy during crystal castles in a red t-shirt was really fucked up on something, he was just staring off into space and losing his balance every now and then/nodding off a little. every minute or so, he'd put on his hat or turn it sideways or take his glasses off but he was moving so slowly.
    -i was watching the light cube and eating some nasty asian food and some kid was staring at me all the way over towards the saraha tent, and then proceeded to reach his arms towards me and walk all the way over, grab me and keep walking. i turned around laughing really hard and he still had his arms reached out towards me..must have been rolling pretty hard
    -my friends apparently saw a couple having sex outside of the sahara on saturday night.. just sittin on the ground haha.

    1. Dude at Sahara smoking pot out of a red bull can. *Kudos for innovation*

    2. Dude at Sahara with "I need Acid" sign and the the several non-dancing guys around him *One guy looked like a narc to me, had a backpack with a red hat and he never danced, only head bobbed a bit and kept looking around the crowd*

    3. Guy with pupils the size of nickels asking me before the Orb started "Turn it up!! Will they turn it up!!?"

    4. Girl taking her shirt off during the Plump DJs and the DJs stopping to point at her and cheer *priceless*

    5. Singer getting her skirt pulled off while she was crowd surfing during Thievery Corporation

    i was watching the yeah yeah yeahs, dancin around and all the sudden this very short very pretty young woman runs up to me from out of nowhere and starts dancing with me. about 45 seconds later she runs off really fast, then about 10 mins later she runs back, gives me a hug and a necklace, and runs off again.

    also there was the super cool glowstick on a string girl towards the back of the cure who would wave her glowstick in front of everyone who walked by to see who was rolling balls, and then proceed to find out what they were rolling.

    Saturday morning around 7:30am, a black dude wearing something that looked like a caveman-type tiger skin dress with a super soaker, spraying water (i hope) at the people sleeping outside of their tents.
    Saturday evening at the sahara, a chick is dacing next to me alone, a little later some dued appraoches her and they start dancing, than another dude rushes is and the two DUDES started making out, and the girl was like WTF ?!?!?! I mean the expression on her face was the funniest thing i`ve seen in ages !!!

    The first message was "GIRLS ON THE DANCE FLOOR" then "FAREASTMOVEMENT.COM" then "FREE MUSIC MP3 TXT....." and I don't remember what the rest of it said. These all occurred during Lupe Fiasco's set for me. For all I know it was happening all day.

    yah so i guess we left fucked up, went to have another drink, and i have no idea whether i had another drink but i saw this written in the sky, slept thru pb&j and woke up for yyys.

    on a note related to the thread, walking back to the car while paul mccartney was still playing, the chick and dude behind us were talking: "hey, i remember this song. it's some girls name. eleanor something. eleanor... umm... hmm... well, it wasn't this guy that sang it. someone else sang it. oh, it's rigby! yeah rigby. yeah but this guy wasn't singing it."
    i can go with the flow.

    Dudes nose was leaking blood like a faucet at the front row of Yeah yeah yeahs. It was all over his arms and face and apparently just wouldnt stop. Security ended up dragging him up over the front fence and he never returned....

    Show me your boobies sign was right behind me during YYY, it was quite a detailed drawing of a pair of hairy balls and boobs. Yellow stuff was coming out of the wang tho...

    i love spotting people who are rolling, it's hilarious. we saw this one kid sitting in the purple light maze by himself... he was just staring at a cast he had on his arm while he rubbed it really slowly for like 15 minutes. my boyfriend and i were rolling really hard and he had to drag me out of there, i never wanted to leave. the serpent mother was so fucking cool. on saturday at the end of the night when everyone was leaving the field, we sat in one of the shade tents by the exit and just pulled out grass for half an hour because it felt so good. we made a nest with the pile of grass we pulled and some old guy ran by and threw grass on it and said he was helping us out. i was amazed.

    oh and when we were walking around the campsite, we saw one of those guys dressed all in green, except he was a kid and super skinny and small. way smaller than the green man i saw the next morning. he was really gangly and scrawny and i got really happy and excited because i thought he was a frog.

    -I witnessed the big naked guy before he got tazzed. He seemed totally relaxed and was even patting one of the cops on the back in a friendly way.

    -A fight broke out between two dudes in the portapotties next to the Sahara on Sun. After a brief skirmish, one of the guys jumps in a stall and locks the other guy out. That guy attempts to pry the door open, then takes a defensive stance waiting for his opponent. Shortly thereafter, he too jumps in a stall and locks the door. I didn't stick around to see the outcome.

    -Strangest by far: Some guy had a baby at the front of the Sahara during the Plump DJs set on Sun. And by baby I mean a newborn, and by the front I mean the fucking guardrail. He was trying to get backstage, which I think he eventually did. But, WTF!!?? Who brings a baby into the Sahara? I think Brokendoll and Suffacted saw it too, as they were standing right there.

    There was more than one green man. I met the one with dyed red hair who explained he wasn't the only one.

    Wink Re: Funny things you saw/overheard

    Husband and I saw a girl get her bikini untied by a friend during an animated Sahara set (not sure what it was, we were just watching from behind the tent). The look on her face was PRICELESS!

    I am wondering--I was walking around with a huge mustache made of cardboard that had tons of glitter on it all day on Friday & Saturday. Anyone happen to see me? I am really curious as to whether the act of having a weird prop can influence whether people look at someone and remember them, or pass them by.

    On Sunday morning I believe, while I was waiting for the shower, a truck tried to squeeze by the handicap port-o-potty. The truck completely failed. It bumps the stall until it gets by, and the stall is diagonal. Of course there was a poor, helpless 20-something chick in there the whole time! She comes out with this wtf-look on her face, and as she walks toward us everyone starts clapping. You can't write this stuff.
