The dinosaurs and the windmills
The dinosaurs and the windmills
only 5 minutes more only 5 minutes more only 5 minutes more to coachella
here we are on our way only 4 minutes more only 4 minutes more..
I'm so glad that I'm not the only one who talks about Coachella incessantly. My girlfriend tells me that she doesn't mind, but I feel self conscious about my obsession.
I met this girl February last year and things have been rad out of the park since we've been exclusive last April. We share the same taste in everything including life values and music, we record songs together, and we've never had a fight. I bought her a Coachella ticket and the flight to Indio for our anniversary. Not sure if she'll be as excited about it as I am, and truth be told, I'll be a tiny bit bummed if she's not into it, but ultimately I'm going to have a blast. This will be my eighth Coachella, and I am completely certain that these are the best three days of my year, every year.
I think this should just be the thread to rant excessively about all things Coachella-obsession related. I need the supportz.
Congratz on the anniversary! I hope it all works out perfectly for you!
it hits me when we get 2-3 weeks away and i start to work on the checklist for everything i need for that week. i did that yesterday and it hit! very excited!
This is usually the time when i buy my stash and smoke it all and curse myself for having to spend more money on a new stash thursday night before i head out. wish me luck
My productivity is around a zero right now. All I can manage to do at wok is not get caught on the boards, last minute online-shopping, drawing my camping set-up, listening to Spotify, and planning the trip. I'm so fiendy, no one in my group has even bothered to plan or shop for anything because they know that's all I want to do.
Actually, I have an interview later today for a different (better) job -- just a little worried they may not like me leaving for Coachella so soon after getting hired. If that is how they think, then I will just stay where I am at -- miserable but free!
It seems like every week I have a new artist I am excited about seeing. And, fortunately, this line-up is pretty near perfect by my tastes (conflicts are going to prove a headache, I can tell) so I've had about 10 great weeks of being excited.
Also, I love living in the Bay Area: Berkeley Bowl carries a slew of fantastic canned beers that I have been staving off trying until the event. It's just one more thing for me to look forward to.
IT'S MY NEW COACHELLA 2013 MIX! 60 of this years artists in only 45 minutes!
got my pick up instructions for will call. hit.
It hasn't hit yet, and it probably won't until I'm at the polo fields. Same thing happened in 2010, reality didn't really set in until I was in the Gobi for Sleigh Bells. I said to myself, "Holy shit...I'M ACTUALLY DOING THIS!"
I'ma ball at the mall shuttin' down the sea wall
It usually doesn't hit me until we are driving out to the desert. Once we reach Casino Morongo my g/f and I, and whoever else, are usually like, "We are on our way to fucking COACHELLA!!"
Then the non stop partying commences.
I think it really hit me yesterday when I made a sticky note count down and put it on my desk at work. There is something satisfying about being able to take one down a day and throwing it away. I also finished my shopping list today, so that helped too. I can't fucking wait!
Coachella confession. Whenever I finally step foot onto the grassy fields, I kiss the ground and say to myself "i'm home."
The best feeling for me is walking in on friday. The worst feeling is when the lights come up sunday night. And then waiting another 362 days.
When I buy my Neutrogena SPF 100+ Sport sunscreen thats when it sinks in.
coachella is with me year round. several years ago i cut out a piece of coachella grass and brought it home, it grows in a pot right outside our kitchen so i can always look out and be reminded of my happy place.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world.
Coachella: 08, 09, 10, 11, 12w1, 12w2, 13w1
Burning Man: 08,10
My excitement builds steadily on Thursday morning starting with writing Coachella all over my car windows, then people honking and yelling as they pass you on the freeway until the verbal wave that sweeps the campground Thursday afternoon while setting up camp.
Coachella literally means honeymoon to me.
April 9th 2011, I got married to the love of my life (who I first met in a record shop 12 years ago).
We flew 12 hours for Coachella and had a real great time.
We're coming back this year again! (weekend2)
I'm not sure if I can do this year and year again. It costs quite big money.
I hope I can.
April, Polo fields, Coachella mean honeymoon to me and April is one day away.

It's hit me for a couple seconds at a time over the past few days, but nothing lasting. My passes are (theoretically) being delivered to work today, that might do the trick. But I'm with everybody else in that it usually doesn't get "real" until I start seeing windmills, and then I practically freak out in the car. So many of my favorite people are coming with me...my brother (for the first time), my closest cousin, so many of my best friends...this year is going to be nothing short of magical.
My girlfriend will be coming for the first time. Im almost more excited for her than I am for myself.... We went to Hard summer last year and she is thinking it will be similar. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAha....
