    Talking SUCCESS! Your pre-sale experience for 2014

    I waited 40 mins in the waiting room, then got worried cause the page refreshed to something like 'Weekend 1 is almost sold out, would you like to purchase Weekend 2'.
    After another minute, though, I got through and got two GA tix to Wknd 1 -- no layaway, no shuttle. Great all around, except for the minor point of being an unsecured creditor for 10 months.
    2014 completely unrealistic wishlist: Radiohead, Atoms For Peace, Elbow, Doves, Kristin Hersh, David Bowie, Kate Bush, Chemical Brothers, Faithless, Shy Child, Massive Attack, Zero 7, The Dickies, Holy Fuck, Seun Kuti and Egypt 80, The Flaming Lips

    Opened my IE browser at work. Opened my iphone browser.

    Iphone: 10 -> 10:05
    Browser: 10 -> 10:30

    Obviously used my phone to purchase, but that's how long it took mine to leave standby page.

    Computer 1: Opened the page at 9:58 to find CAPTCHA up early. Entered waiting room. Purchase complete by 10:08.

    Computer 2: Opened the page at 9:59 and entered waiting room. Got to the purchase page at 10:41.

    I don't know if it is luck of the draw, or if Frontgate improved the process, but this year was so much better than last year's 1 hour plus wait.

    CAPTCHA early at 9:57 on my iPhone. Was in the waiting room for about 15 minutes, then got 2 weekend 1 passes and a car camping pass. Easy peasy.

    It went great! So smooth

    I was a little worried how it was going to go because this is my first time buying a wristband! I was surprised at easy it was!

    It definitely helped that I created an account for weekend 1 before buying it.

    So excited for Coachella!

    Double checked my Front Gate imfo at like, 4am, went to bed without setting an alarm, and woke up in a panic at 11:30. As I cursed myself walking down the hallway thinking I had really fucked up and wondered how I was gonna explain this to Pete, there he was on the couch. As my blood pressure rose and my palms began to sweat, I subtly mentioned that Coachella tickets went on sale today, (Without mentioning what time they went on sale.) and told him I was going into the backroom to order them. (Hoping like Hell they hadn't sold out.) 'It's already been handled, babe. 2 passes for Weekend One! Woo-Hoo!"
    Woo-Hoo, is right! How much more successful can I get???

    Did you? Did you REALLY?

    I was sidetracked by that whole job thing and didn't even log on until 10:15. Maybe 15 minutes later I was in and done. I still managed to actually be productive and hide my enthusiasm as I discussed imagery with 12 year olds.

    After witnessing some of your sex-capades stories, what exactly does one say when discussing imagery with a pre-pubescent? (It's okay, you can explain it in a way that will excite Amyzzz, if need be...) -

    OK. It took 25 minutes for both weekends. I suppose it would have been faster had I waited later than 10:00 am.

    You need to be fashionably late.

    I got mine at, like, 10:02. Everybody in our group of 14 had theirs in the first twenty minutes. So easy this year! Thanks GV and FrontGate.

    "Badaboom badabing?" Weird. Once I realized my worries were over it was more like,"Untz, untz, untz, umph-------untz, untz, untz,umph..."
