    The more I look at that picture, the more I remember looking at that "art piece" at some point during the weekend and commenting on what a piece of shit it was.

    I saw one blowing up a balloon, ostensibly for balloon animals, but I think another hippo attacked him before he could finish it.

    That clip has me rolling. Sounds like a weed eater.

    And the power station idea was brilliant. Genius how as the day went on more hippos showed up and at night there'd be a foreman. I dug it.

    Funniest and most mind boggling thing I've ever looked at on acid. I even told myself to stay away from there before I started tripping, but sure as shit I got sucked in every time I walked by after that. The Tesla coils being right next to it made for one hell of a tripper's delight.

    I enjoy imagining the conversation the artist had in explaining his idea to the participants. Maybe something like this: "Well you see, you'll be in this glass box, see, and it's got all this equipment in there. And lots of old recording tape on the floor. And you'll be working on the equipment, banging things with tools and such. While wearing white prison jumpsuits. Oh, yeah, and, uh, hippo heads. It will be fantastic."

    All that I could assume from this art piece was, a half's day work = free Coachella passes.

    And drugs.

    What's the opposite of playing grown up?
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    friday night weekend 1 I stared at the power station for a good 10 minutes waiting for something to happen that never did.

    didn't anyone else see the anti-hippo protest during weekend 2? they were picketing outside the power station sunday afternoon. I wish I took pics, but I was anti-camera both weekends.

    Was anyone there sunday night after all the music was coming to an end? It was hilarious how there were a group of 15-20 people all perfectly seated and staring those hippos down.

    So you've not seen ANY of the good art, then. The art was much better and there was much more of it before the Do Lab & attendance exploded and they had to 86 a lot of art to make extra room for shitty people.


    Anyone remember all the installations that blew fire in years past? I miss the Rattlesnake; they could bring that back every year and I'd never get tired of it.

    Yeah man, if that was the coolest shit he ever saw on acid, well ... he's dumb and shouldn't be wasting good acid on that sort of uninspired trash.

    The hippos were cool. Most of you aren't cool.

    For whatever reason, i couldn't stop starring at them.

    Not sure if id call it entertainment, but for a few minutes it was cool to look at. I think it was the excitement of something possibly happening, but nothing ever did.

    I could have sworn they were going to turn on speakers and dj for people to listen and watch, i thought i saw one of them playing with keyboards
