    Default The Freaky Dreadlock Midget guy thread (2009)

    It wouldn't be a Coachella without this celebrity. Every year we have a thread for him, discussing his crazy behavior. Did you see him this year? I ran into him 3 times actually:

    The first, being at the Mainstage during M Ward.



    He was spinning around almost violently with a odd look on his face.

    2nd Time I saw him was in the campgrounds somewhere.

    3rd time was outside of the Sahara tent on Sunday, sleeping.



    Where did you see him??

    I was right behind him when we were exiting Saturday night...he seemed really annoyed and angry at the long lines to get out.

    If you want to see this guy in action, watch him freak out during the black keys in this video:

    http://vimeo.com/4278122

    At the 1:45 mark, you will see him doing some awesome dancing, run up to some person sitting on the grass, he shakes his giants shitlocks over them and walks away like it was no biggie and goes back to dancing.

    I took a picture of him from behind somewhere between the Sahara and the Mojave early afternoon on Friday. Then I saw him a few minutes later in the food court by that area. Then I ran into him not too much longer in the back of the Mojave during Los Campesinos! and he was giving me the evil eye.

    Next year's scavenger hunt should require you to take a picture WITH him.

    I saw him twice, though I can't remember where or on which day. I only remeber thinking - "Hey, that's the dreadlocked guy the forum was talking about," followed by, "Hey, there's that dreadlocked guy again."

    Alas, no photos.

    I saw him once in 07 and like 5 times in 08 (my camp was close to his). I didn't see him at all this year which makes me feel like I missed a little of the Coach experience. I wonder what this guy does for a living...

    I saw him talking to some campers on Thursday night. He wasn't too far from Geno and Nipples, I wonder if they ran into him at all.

    Haha, I wonder if he would be amused by this or totally freaked out by strangers coming up to him, or just too wasted to care. Probably the latter.

    I saw him standing in front of the volcano in the campgrounds one morning doing some sort of yoga/meditation/tai chi moves. When I saw him walking around later I tried talking to him but he didn't answer me. Maybe next year I will unlock his secrets, maybe next year...

    Im guessing he doesn't read the boards.

    And I saw him a bunch in 07 and 08... but not a single time this year.

    I saw him sleeping on Sunday also. It was the first time I had seen him, so still, so serene, so untortured. It was quite calming and beautiful, like a killer fighting dog snoozing and dreaming.

    He's a Coachella Legend, sometimes you see him sometimes you don't, which reminds me Hotshot has been avoiding me two coachellas in a row...

    I'm pretty sure Hotshot is actively avoiding me.

    I only saw him once and this was also my first time, when I was coming back from charging my phone in the internet cafe. It shocked me so much to see him I almost wanted to ask where his pot of gold was... Or you know, just where the pot was
