    Few things will match the experience you just had. Helps if you have some friends at home who have attended. As stated above fill your time with other festivals and live music to plan for and attend. Carry yourself through to December, then wait for the announcement/ticket sale and start obsessing about 2011. This board helps some, but also fuels the depression at times.

    Yeah, alisonn - don't you live in SD? I do too - we should hang out. I go to a lot of shows, other festivals, and hang out with friends from the board to get through the year. For example - I'm not too depressed this year because I have LiB, EDC, Reset, and Bestival to look forward to. Music Music Music. That's what gets me from Coachella to Coachella.

    I, for one, am going to hit the festival circuit this summer... and start going to more concerts to get my live music fix. None of my friends are music lovers as I am, so any and all LA-area board peeps are encouraged to contact me if they need a concert buddy

    This year would make for a great vid, wouldn't it? They could even edit in parts of the first video to denote a plot change.

    Which band/track do they choose to denote the change, set the tone, and let the retards know something is changing in the story? Something sinister? 2 many djs dropping "money"?

    The thing about living as close to the Polo grounds as BD and I is that you never really leave Coachella. Every single day of the year Coachella comes up in one way or another. We may drive by it, drive through it or I may be doing some kind of work there. At home Coachella is thought about and talked about.

    Lollapalooza. Don't know who I'm going with, but I'm sure as hell going.
