    Default Coachella 2010, Thursday: Setting Up and Camping

    If you were waiting for this thread to come into being, i apologize for the later than usual start.

    i got in the night before and for the first time for Coachela, got to stay in a house with some familiar criminals from this board. Dani made me get some devices to insure the noise that comes out of my head while i sleep didn't inspire people to kill me. The next day it was off to get our wristbands at an offsite location and then to the Polo Grounds. Once again i got to wander around for a bit while the hardest working crews in show bidness were setting up:






    Golf Cart Heaven.



















    i'll be back with some more.

    Once again, thank you all for your appreciation. Like years past, post Coachella editing brings about a lot of self doubt and you guys help a lot in minimizing it's impact. More:

























    More after i eat some tofu, vegggies and brown rice.

    Just like Adam Morrison on the Lakers, it looks like you have the best job of them all.

    i love taking pictures at Coachella more than a lot of things in life, but it can be pretty hard at times. i don't consider it a job because no money comes my way. If it did come down to that somehow, i think i would consider it one of the best jobs i would have in my life (being a dj was pretty dope).

    Mike Ivankay,
    I know I am not alone in stating that you, sir, have captured all facets of the Coachella Vibe that so many of us experience and try to explain to others with your astounding photos. And your pics of transforming a vast open grassy field into the magic of Coachella have given a whole new appreciation for all Paul Tollett and everyone involved in production have done for us, the fans who love and live for it. Thank You!


    I wonder how many of us have changed our desktops to the sunset picture looking towards the clubhouse? It's just what my new PC needed! Kudos!
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    I know that living here has brought us many a beautiful sunset, but there's just something about the sunsets of Coachella that can't be beat.

    Thanks. Couldn't do it without Dani. She definitely directs me a lot when she tells me what she wants. Other than being a creative outlet for me and kinda being a yearbook for us, these threads are intended for the curious who wonder how you can have the best weekend of the year in a "desert". Hopefully the pictures can help future Coachella goers in their decision to make the leap.

    Maybe you scored in the sale that was going on.








    So i see these guys and i recognize them and say "Hey weren't you on the rail last year during My Bloody Valentine smoking a joint? i took your picture." That was fun.


    What's in the store?
















    So if you forgot something...

    More in a bit.

    You have some mighty fine endurance to make it to this point. You must be a vet. More in a few days (or less).
