definitely saw someone getting CPR right outside of our camping, he was revived though but it was pretty freaky.
a gang of security and EMS pushed through us during MGMT with a stretcher...and came back by a few seconds later with the stretcher still empty. either the person ended up being okay, or they couldn't find the corpse in the buttfuck cluster of hipsters
I'm pretty sure I saw the death @ Deadmau5 that people are talking about. It was some kid, writhing on the grass foaming at the mouth right as I was leaving halfway through mau5' set. His friends were all screaming and holding him, trying to get him to snap out of it. Would not be terribly surprised at an overdose this year, there were WAY too many KIDS at Coachella. :/
Devin is stupid.
I watched the Sly Stone set, does his career count?
I call BS on anyone dying in the Sahara. It's been 3 days, there would be press over it by now. When that kid died in 08, not even at on the premises, the local media was quick to jump on the story.

i met this one kid while tokyo police club was playing. he seemed to be totally normal looked to be about 16 and he was just talking about how he loved the band to his friend.
i hear him go on and on totally fine until he just collapsed face first into the ground. completely random and unexpected. he passed out pretty hard and someone revived him with a waterbottle or something.
he got carried out by his underage friend and thanks to them i got alittle closer to the front.
A girl in my group passed out in a frightening way in the Mojave before Fever Ray started on Friday night. Just wanted to let anyone know who was there or who was watching it happen that everything's fine and she snapped to in a few minutes. It was up towards the front of the crowd, in front of where everyone was sitting, and she started passing out with her eyes open and mouth agape, which made it scary and seem like death... she was just staring with a blank expression and her eyes looked empty, then she would fall over without realizing what was happening, completely limp. These two really nice strangers helped us carry her through the crowd and out of the tent, losing their good spot for Fever Ray in the process. I never got to thank them for what they did and I'm not sure anyone did, we had to leave the situation immediately to get a medic. But what they did was awesome and we're super grateful. It turns out it was just ecstasy, dehydration, and not eating all day that did it and she was fine with in 5 minutes, up and walking again. First time that happened for me at Coachella though... but everyone enjoyed Fever Ray after that...
^^This was right in front of me pancakes. Glad to know your friend is ok.
Devin: What you witnessed was probably a seizure. They are scary to see, but usually non-fatal.
I forget which show I was leaving . . . I think it was The XX. I know it was about sunset time, and I was leaving the outdoor stage.
I saw a guy surrounded by people, laying on his side in the grass, eyes closed, completely motionless, I didnt see him breathing. Probably was just heat exhaustion, dehydration.
People really need to learn how to drink water all day long. I drank so much water, that after every act (unless I saw 2 or 3 in a row) i was drinking and went to the bathroom as much as possible, so I didnt get a full bladder. I've felt the effects of dehydration, and they sneak up on you. You should always have tons of water near you at Coachella.
Double plus for those who are experimenting w/ mind altering stuff.
Not that the guy you're talking about had any excuse considering Thom Yorke closed the 2nd stage.
This year was very tiring in regards to douche bags. There seemed to be so many this year. Way diff than my last experience. :-(
I hope 74,980 of the attendees this year die of cocks.
the headlining act on friday and sunday died on stage
]sitting through a Jack Johnson headliner with special guests counting crows, ben harper, and dave matthews with a midget sitting on my lap ....a retarded midget with drool driping down my leg as he claps to the curious george song as i hold his lolly pop, while MIA's dj blasts horn noises in my right ear while staring at a 3rd addition of the tesla coils while the group of guys with g strings fart in my left ear > Kanye West
