I was thinking about starting this thread except just calling it "Thank Yous and Fuck Yous" but everyone seems to be in such a good mood so I'll wait til next week for griping on boardies

Oh man, I talked to SO many boardies, or at least said hi. I'll probably mess your names up...
In the campgrounds...Mt McCabe (but I drove in with him), Hannahrain, Miscorrections, Menik, TheClares, Lickity Spit, TallGuyCM, Caco, Eskimo, OnlyNonStranger, Boourns (except I didn't know it was you until you left), Alex Gardner, PC2Violence, MooMoo, Salah, Feather, Forzaorwhateverthehellhisnameisnow, Mr Nipples, MrDylanja, Mattpach, Locachica, Allyjoy, Boarderwoozel, Shakermaker, Headstruck, Kylie. There was also someone who introduced himself as "(something) Underscore (something)"...sorry, I couldn't really hear what you said.
On the field...many of the above plus Algunz, Rspakat, Amyzzz, TomAZ, Alligator Boogaloo, ChairmanMeow, Monklish, Ivankay, DaleGribble, Frozen Pilgrim.
At the group picture...PixieSP, BD & Suff, Drinkey, RagePatton, Chiapet, Litro & HowToDisappear, Lizng (actually, she found me on the field and asked where the picture was.), Passive & Bmack (though I spotted them both at Sleighbells first). Obviously, I SAW a lot more of you there, but I didn't stay and chat much.
I'm sure I've forgotten a few...
EDIT- Oh, and I got up at 3:30am to take a piss and saw someone in a Spiderman mask near VIPAW sitting in a chair. Could it have been MJA?
AND, I saw Guedita...at least I thought it was her...coming out of John Waters. I called her name , and then stepped outside the tent when she got out and called again, but no answer. So if that was you, you missed your chance for a sweet sweet free frozen lemonade.

I have to give a shout out to Bev...Broken Doll...This year I didn't stay at my normal mom 'n pops strip motel...we got a condo at PGA West and brought our bikes to ride in each day...Thursday, I rode in to scope out the grounds and miraculously found myself in the campgrounds. I was in ahhh in how I managed to unexpectedly get in on my bike and bev was the first boardie I saw...I met suff we chatted for a few and they pointed my the direction I needed to be in to reunite with some of my Cacoa...or how ever you spell his name...he was hospitable and sent me further into the direction I needed to be...reuniting with feather after ********* was a much needed moment I think for both of us...I met a few of you I hadn't met before and some that I haven't seen since *********...Localiciousss...sorry we didn't hang out on the fields but it was nice to finally meet you chill'n at the campground...Leo, it was a pleasure!!! Ryan, when are we ever gonna met??? I missed running into my friend henry mr FatBastard...and Pixie...forces will bring us together one day or another!!! Heidi thanks for the spray down...Salahhh, why didn't we smoke a bowl??? Greg glad we got a brief chance to meet...Forest you don't look anything near 40...everyone else, I'm sorry we didn't have an opportunity to meet in passing but am looking forward to future opts!!! xoxoxoxooo
I found myself in line behind Dave Wang to get in on Friday
Oh and I met Guedita by the bathrooms and think I saw BD
I missed all of the meetups. Vendor setup were a nightmare this year (power, water, change, trash pickup were all flakey), so I got stuck having to spend most of my time trying to get things caught up in the booth I may have seen some of you and not known it, it anyone came by vendor row in campground 8, tho.
I can't even begin to name everyone I met. I would leave someone out for sure and that would suck.
To those of you who saw me walking around and stopped me and introduced yourself: thank you, that was really great.
To those of you who saw me at a set or in the beer garden and waved me over to join your group: many thanks, that was awesome.
Oh and emtgreg (sans Twix) and a very nice gentleman whose name escapes me
My intentions were good, but I failed miserably at meeting a single boardie this year...
I did see RagePatton and Pancakes several times
but I couldn't bring myself to chase them down to say hi...next year

I had a lot of awesome random meetups this year, saturday being the best of them (even though a lot of these are people I already have met, it was awesome just running into people unexpectedly amongst all of the thousands of people). Forgive me if I forgot meeting you, or I mess up you board name, I'm not great about remembering initial and numbers are the end of names
During Craze & Klever I was wandering around the Sahara and bumped into DONALDJ as he looked to be frantically searching for someone. Not 5 minutes later I ran into UNKNOWN, chatted a bit, and then we spotted DEVIN, who was wandering around already munching on some goodies. The three of us retired to the super packed beer garden for a drink, where we ran into TALLGUYCM and MUSERADIO. After another beer, I spotted PAULB and jenny, who happened to be chilling with STINKBUTT, whom I had another couple of beers with. Awesome.
TALLGUYCM, HAWKINGS(brandon) @Sleigh bells
HAWKINGS, MOUNTMCCABE @ Baroness
PIXIE (joann), BECCA, BLACKSWAN, KYLIE, TOMMY @Yeasayer (randomly stood with Joann and said hi to Becca at Grizzly Bear as well)
HAWKINGS, SUPREFAN, CACO (ronnie), DAVE WANG @fever ray
DALEGRIBBLE, MOOMOO @ portpotties before Fever Ray
GUEDITA @ Z-trip
CAPTCRAZY, SHANX, UNKNOWN, DAFTFRO, EMTGREG and probably a bunch of others @Orbital
HOWTODISAPPEAR & 1LITRO found me eating garlic fries while I was sitting against a fence
And at the photo I met up with a bunch of others but amongst them the ones I met for the first time were PASSIVE, MSPARKS, BROKENDOLL, SUFFACATED, JIMMYCRACKCORN
I am sure I ran into a bunch more randomly and sorry if I am forgetting you. I really enjoyed being able to Watch sets with people this year, and it's so awesome having friendly faces to bump into within the giant crowds.
8/23-24/14 FYF Fest - Expo Park //8/25/14 Nine Inch Nails - Hollywood Bowl // 9/6/14 Elvis Costello & Ben Folds - Hollywood Bowl
9/12-14/14 Riotfest - Humboldt Park, Chicago, IL // 9/18/14 Neutral Milk Hotel - Hollywood Bowl
Shit, I forgot SchoolOfRuckus in the campground Sunday night, he even gave me a copy of his movie, which I plan on watching before the week is out.
Sunday night in the campground was just fantastic all around...we just chilled there all night and so many people came in and out of our little home. TallGuy was just KILLING me , hurling mostly deserved abuse at passerbys . Eskimo came "bearing moustaches". Jake Gyllenhaal dropped by. Hannah worked out her stand up routine, and otherwise proved herself to be as delightful as I expected. TheClares encouraged people to empty their beer cooler, and Miscorrections and Lickity Spit out-drank me by a wide margin in response. Menik cracked a smile a few times. Board feuds were resolved, dares were performed, and morning light was observed. Thanks everyone.
I didn't meet very many boardies new to me. Tallguy, emtgreg, mattpatch, neutralmilkhotel, chia, donaldj, and maybe a couple more. I did recognize people in passing due to the meetups n such, but didn't introduce myself too much, sorry : /
Saw menik & company @ sleigh bells. Wanted to thank him for the cooking thread but the crowd was a lil thick. Not to mention I'm shy around celebrities.
i saw the guy who made that sweet video for his 21st at coachella last year on thursday night at the bass thing! drunkenly asked him to video tape me for this year's...
12.01 Dan Deacon @ The Echoplex
12.03 Benoit & Sergio @ TBA
12.09 Avery Tare @ The Center for the Arts Eagle Rock
12.17 Baths/DNTEL @ The El Rey
04.13-15 COACHELLA @ The Polo Fields
Ok so I'll just post this in this thread, and not clutter the board.
First and foremost, thank you Geno, Jason (who isn't on the board), and Mr. Nips. You guys made Sunday one of the most fun and memorable nights of any Coachella I've ever been to. Glostaches, Bongzilla and TP toss 2011 are going to be beyond fucking awesome.
Thanks Ally for being our legal advisor for the weekend and cataloging all the dumb but hilarious quotes from the weekend. Thanks for the menthols too.
Salah and Sunni it was really awesome to hang out with you this weekend too.
Heidi, Lillia, and Bobby made an awesomely delicious bloody mary which really saved my way too hungover ass Friday (?) morning.
Thanks Mattpatch for letting me keep my beer in your cooler.
Thanks to Josh and Karina for letting me ride down with yall from SF it was a blast. The rest of the FNM group in SF was awesome too, there is just too many to name.
Edward, Blinken, Geno and anyone else who hooked up a beer or two, thanks a ton. I owe you all a couple and will for sure bring a ton next year to share/repay.
Thanks to both groups for letting me chill with you guys all weekend, and putting up with me.
Boourns that was an awesome breakfast Saturday morning thanks for sharing.
Paul and Jenny it was so nice talking to you both Saturday afternoon. Thanks for the beer and getting me far too drunk. Also thanks to the older ladies who continued to get me too drunk Saturday night.
Ronnie, you will have to tell Terry thanks for letting me use her car phone charger.
I met a ton more and it was great hanging out with all of you. These are just all the folks I needed to thank for an amazing weekend.
hannah, miscorrections, Tom, Randy, Ivy, Drinkey, Zack, Tommy, M Sparks, Audra, Menik, Passive, Sin, faxman, everyone from both camping groups, and everyone I'm forgetting, it was awesome meeting you and thanks for a great weekend.
I met / saw too many of you to list. I feel like I'd leave one person out and look like an asshole, like Gribble up there.
