    That was funny

    Yeah, but he did bounce to his feet pretty quick. Of course he collapsed in a heap a few feet later. But we can pretend we did not see that bit.

    I think right about the time he realized he was about to be arrested/banned from Coachella is when he decided he would rather die than miss the rest of the show. And right on cue, the Bamboo Gods gave him a helping hand with that.

    haha yes! This was a highlight of day one for me. As terrible as this is I was laughing so hard. The guy was an idiot, what did he expect.

    I got some pretty good footage I will upload later today

    Saw it happen just as I was getting my camera ready. That piece of bamboo he was holding came loose causing the fall. He definitely didn't jump. It looked like he was working on the thing, but I'm not sure. The guy who repaired the loose bit was well secured to the structure.

    This just solidified for me that once you pass the Mojave you enter the Dumb Zone. I did not cross over again the rest of the weekend.

    I went down to the Rose Garden a few times so had to walk right past it. in one case, during the day, the back of the sahara was empty enough that I could have trimmed a few yards off my walk if I'd actually cut through the tent. I chose not to.

    But I did get to see some of the light shows and the thing I noticed was how the person standing up front playing records flashes his name in big gaudy graphics as if he's marketing cheeseburgers or underwear.

    Ahhh here is the thread I knew someone else had to see this go down. I didn't get any pics though.

At first I wasn't sure if he was supposed to be doing that, like part of the installation or something, but I though gosh that's probabaly not safe. So I keep watching as this dude goes about half way up the spines and leans out for a photo. At this point I obviously know it's a jackass who has obviously made a stupid descion and I watch as what I knew was going to happen actually happened.... he went to climb back down and only got about 2 spines down when one came undone and he fell to the ground. It was a pretty good distance. As I walked over a crowd had formed and security was calling for medical help and wouldn't let anyone near so I could see how badly the guy got hurt and haven't heard anything else about it. Anyone have any more details/see that?

    There's very little I love more than seeing an idiot get his come-uppance. I only wish he had fallen from the top.

    Pretty sure he died... PCP and a severe head injury-turned-coma, I heard.
