    Dear CMB,

    As you know, it's been a trying year for me. I've bitched and whined and overshared, but now it is time to reflect on what a great year it's been overall. And you were a huge part of that, CMB. So I wanted to say thanks, and send out some specific messages to:

    Ivy, Amy E, and Sean…The Lonely Hearts Club band was a huge part of my life this year, thanks for the perspective and keeping me sane.

    Audra and Adrienne…the sisters I never knew I wanted. Thanks for inviting me into your family.

    Ryan…the daughter I never knew I wanted. And still don't want. But I think we are stuck with each other. Smackababy!

    Jen and Rick…Thanks for inviting me into some of the most important parts of your lives this year.

    Hannah and Corinna…best campmates ever.

    John, Paul & Kim…the other best campmates ever, plus so much more. You were great friends this year.

    Chris, Ronnie, Travis, Warren, Erik, and anyone else that helped with or dropped by best campsite ever.

    Amy B…You were the first boardie I met after I got to Phoenix. Even though you barely spoke to me, it meant a lot. We should try that being friends thing again, we were almost there.

    Tomas, Micah, Matt J, Adam, Dylan, AJ, Jason K, Mark, and any other members of the Phoenix Thread I've forgotten. It's nice to go to virtually any show alone and know I will see someone there I know.

    Becca and Joann... I barely know you, and yet there's always a text or message of some sort from you to cheer me up.

    Courtney…I don't know you AT ALL, and yet you are easily one of my favorite people on the planet. The lightning field awaits us.

    Alma…thanks for the artwork. You'll never know how relieved I was, considering, again, we've never met.

    Zack, Jason M, and MJA…Three more people I have never met, but you have made me laugh more than anyone else this year.

    Alessandra…Maybe I will take you up on your suggestion in 2011. Thanks for keeping me company many lonely Tinychat nights.

    That goes for the rest of the Tinychat crew as well, especially Gemma, Heidi, Andrew, Kylie, Cara, Brandon, Shannin, MooMoo, Morghan, other Zack, and yes, even Devin.

    __________...the person I missed who I really shouldn't have. Sorry.

    Fuck yea,
    Marc

    Sometimes the amount of time I spend on this board (and how often it is part of my conversations with non-Coachella people) makes me feel even more lame than I am. Then I remember that I've made some awesome friends through this board. And those friends have made Coachella (and ATP!) that much more amazing.

    I want to hug everyone now.
    My name is Becca. Hi.

    Facebook, yo.

    Hanging out with you guys that last night was one of the highlights from this past Coachella for me (I'm assuming I'm the Chris you're talking about since I rolled over with Ronnie). I haven't been that drunk since, and I haven't laughed that hard since, seriously. I only remember snippets of it, but that was such a random and fun few hours.
    12/22 - Beachwood Sparks, et al - Echoplex
    12/30 - Together Pangea - Echo
    1/10 - Flesh Eaters - Echoplex (?)

    I always skim posts like this to see if my name is mentioned. Glad it was!

    Nice note, Marc, and hopefully your schedule affords you the time for the lot of us to hang out again soon.

    Yes you. Your abuse of random passersby was a riot.

    Awww, Marc. You are so sweet.
    I have a very select group of Coachella people I text regularly.
    I am proud to call you one of them.

    I will have to echo Marc's sentiment about Joann's and Becca's texts. Every time I get one, it makes me happy.

    I was a fan of the Tinychat camping group! My goal for 2011 is to stop by your camp at a time when I'm not fucked up. And Ryan better not pick me up again. I'm already 6'6, being picked up a foot off the ground by someone half my height was terrifying

    Hell or highwater, fire and brimstone, not even cancer is powerful enough to keep me from Coachella!

    the lonely hearts club band has been a saviour for me as well. it's like my dream come true to have friends that are into making music. yes, yes, i know playing rock band isn't TRULY making music, but it's as close as you can get on the third floor of an apartment.
