Eventually she made it to my left side, but then a wheelchair came in and just about ran her over haha

    people that have some reason to talk obnoxiously during a set at coachella deserve to have their limbs tied and be pulled apart by horses. that play polo matches.

    You ought to calm down a bit with the "slow painful death" routine. I'm one of the tall festival goers, so I understand where you tall folks are going. I've definitely had people ask me if they could get in front of me, and if it's just a short girl or two, then I let them slip in. I generally walk around, and stick to the back of the crowds, but I also realize that some people want to get a better spot. The only time I apologize to someone is if I step on them!

    Agreed 100%. At flylo last year I got jostled by three or four HUGE trains of douchers. Like 10-15 people long. So fucking annoying. And then inevitably one just stops right in front of you. Elbows were employed.

    we usually have a little fun with it, we just chuck a bunch of glow sticks at their heads. watching them touch their heads and look behind confused as fuck is the best then they finally get the point and come down. im on the shorter side so when my friends ask if i'd want to be put on their shoulders i always turn them down, its rude for the people behind me, if i hate it i'm pretty sure everybody else behind me will hate it as well.

    i just don't understand #2, wtf are you doing at the show then? i never have my phone on me at any show i go to. it's a distraction i leave behind so that i can enjoy the show to its fullest - as it should be, imo

    How about people who hold their cell phones up in the air? That's about as lame as it gets. Granted, I never was one to hold my lighter in the air either, but fire kicks way more ass than computer screen glow.

    No, I will not let you by. I mean I might if you're a hot girl on your own. But pretty much 100% of the time you can just go fuck yourself. Sucks to be you.

    It is a music festival, no one is entitled to their spot. That being said, the guy in question sounds like an asshole and anyone wearing something on their head that adds to people not being able to see the stage should get shot.

    Case in point:



    Fuck this asshole wearing a Coors Light cowboy hat, it was in my way during the whole Grizzly Bear set. Although, in his defense I could have just moved to a different spot I suppose.

    Sometimes it is nice to have a cam on you to ninja a view between bitches on shoulders.

    Also I have a mini-tripod and a Mono-pod.

    I record EVERYTHING. I push record and I put my camera/phone in the air and there's not a damn thing anyone can do about it. I pay a lot of fucking money to go to these shows. And I want to remember them and relive them at my leisure.

    If you can't see the stage then you're staring at the large monitors on either side. If you are staring at cameras because they distract you, then you're an idiot.

    However if you're one of the people who record everything but you LOOK at the whole concert THROUGH YOUR PHONE/CAMERA then you're an idiot.

    I just point the camera at the stage and try to hold it steady, but I watch the stage with my own eyes, not the camera.

    This always pisses me off too. I remember there was one lady on the rail during The Strokes ( i was hoping they would leave so I could get the rail for Kanye and it worked out) and during the whole set she was recording THE MONITOR and watching THE MONITOR RECORDING through her camera THE WHOLE SET.

    I just don't understand the purpose of standing steady, focusing on the camera, all to "relive" a set that you never even "lived" in the first place since you were so busy recording it, especially since these days dozens of other people are filming the same thing and you can relive it through them. Just dance and go crazy for fucks sake.

    Seriously fuck you. You're saying that whoever pays for a ticket gets to engage in whatever obnoxious fuckface behaviors they wish. in your case it's filming the whole show like a twat. that means next time I go to a show I get to vomit all over the place and push u out of the way for being tall. I paid for a ticket I get to do what I want

    I'm not so unskilled I can't hold onto a mono/tripod and not have to look through the viewfinder. I enjoy the show fully and I'm able to play it back whenever I feel like from my camera recorded properly, high quality, great sound.

    I enjoy my shows and then I go home and I enjoy them again and again.

    Standing still and holding a pole up in front of me isn't obnoxious. Especially when everyone else is using their arm and holding it off to the side annoying the neighbor and people who aren't even behind him.

    You can't stop anyone from recording and people will never stop recording. So you can cry and complain like a little bitch or you can stop being an imbecile and enjoy your concert.

    I might not be able to stop people from recording but I can shove your recording device up your ass and give you a free colonoscopy during the show.

    Imagine if you were in a movie theatre and 1/3 of the people were recording the movie on their goddam screens, imagine how fucking annoying that would be. It's just as annoying at concerts.

    Were you the one fucking up the light show at Etienne de Crecy with your Mexico flag on a fifteen+ foot pole? You sound like a total douche. You want to get the most out of your money, even if it means making it difficult for other people to get the most out of their money. You do understand how this makes you a douche.... right? I'd like to think that you understand lol
