    Default Ferris Wheel Mural

    I've been to Coachella for the last five years, and my girlfriend has joined me for the last three. It's our favorite place, and every year exceeds our expectations. In an attempt to bring some of the magic home, we had our friend Karissa Dirk at www.prettylittlelairs.ca paint a mural of the ferris wheel in our living room. It's amazing, and I had to share.

    That's pretty cool.

    However, what in that picture identifies it as the Coachella ferris wheel as opposed to any old generic ferris wheel anywhere?

    Fair enough. A few details were left off to simplify the mural. Based on this photo, taken last year by Vanessa Andrew:

    We've got 9 foot ceilings and it's about 12 feet long.

    Seems like it's just a regular Ferris wheel and not the coachella Ferris wheel.

    Well to be fair that Ferris wheel is a regular one, is also at the oc fair and I assume many other fairs across the country during the rest of the year.

    The great thing about art is the viewer sees what they want to. I like what I see and I wanted to share my friend's work with a community of Coachella fans. The fact that several of the old guard from this forum chimed in makes me think it was worth sharing.

    What if we find out that PT was inviting little boys to Coachella and Sandusky-ing them in the ferris wheel? OP would sure be glad that there is no way to pinpoint the room size mural as a shrine to molestation.

    We chime in ONLY on meaningless horseshit at this point.

    Is this the same Ferris Wheel also used at "The White Party" in Palm Springs a couple weeks after Coachella? If so, I know for fact there's been multiple fisting and felching sessions inside each and every car. So you may also have a shrine to deviant sexual behavior in your home. I mean, they don't rename it "The Brown Party" by Sunday for nothing.

    The White Party had 2 Ferris Wheels, and both were way smaller than Coachella. The first Ferris Wheel and first car camping at the polo grounds were at Phish Fest 8.

    fyi I asked the question because I was interested, and ultimately what matters is that you know it is the Coachella ferris wheel. That wall is really well done (believe me I would tell you if I thought it sucked). I like it a lot.

    Thank you kindly sir. I'm a big fan of it. No offense taken. When I decided to post it here, I assumed the grief I would get would be significant, or at least not suitable for work. You've got to have a thick skin to play with the boardies.

    It's a great mural. And honestly, in terms of identifiability, I assume that Le Grande Wheel doesn't stay parked at Empire Polo Grounds all year, right?

    The mural looks amazing, and since it's in your living room, it's up to you how you identify with it.
