    I belong to the church that cancelled her visit this week in Palm Springs. I wonder if she is paying to get into Coachella & if she is paying for us to listen to her crap. I am against the war, but this woman is a nutcase.

    I don't think she is using his death for personal gain. I honestly believe she is attempting to work towards others not experiencing the same loss she did.

    I believe in freedom of speech, but she has exploited her son's death to further her own agenda, which I think disgraces her son's legacy.

    I can barely tolerate when artists get political (like Flaming Lips in 2004), but I don't care to have a puppet showing up to push some agenda down my throat. Hopefully she will simply introduce RATM, but I doubt it.

    Being political doesn't make you a hippy.

    Being political and eating granola makes you a hippie.

    Maybe she'll join Rage for Know Your Enemy.

    One can only hope.

    But seriously, I'm kinda confused to why she is appearing.

    Many other people were complaining about kings of Comedy making an appearance. But at least they put the art into Coachella Music and Arts Festival.

    Its very sad that she lost her son in the war, i'm sure everybody can agree on that but, I can't stand ppl who enroll in our special forces and are pissed when they have to go over, even if it is the reserves when you sign that line you know theirs a chance you could go to war even if were not in one at the time. Sorry I totally do think war is bad but I can't stand that our country is turning into a bunch of whineing babies, it not our fault you signed up for it no body put a gun to your head and made you do it so if you don't want to do it don't fucking sign up for it.

    RATM = politics guaranteed. i don't really mind, so long as its not some long drawn out speech.


    i can understand there being some sort of politics involved, the war and current state of affairs merit people with a "louder" voice to speak up and say something.

    I guess RHCP weighed the pros and cons of Protest vs. Jackass and decided Stupid>Relevant.

    Ummmm...I know this may seem like a minor distinction to some of you, but...




    Big difference.

    Although Brian Posehn revealed in the CoC movie that he pitched the names "The Martin Luther Kings of Comedy", "The Rodney Kings of Comedy" and "The Evelyn 'Champagne' Kings of Comedy"

    this is rediculous. I am also feverishly against the war, but this woman's policies are completely impractical. Its a tragedy that her son had to die, but she is not doing him honor by using his death as a shield against political adversaries. every time the woman gets challenged her re buddle is the "i lost a son" card.

    Coachella is a music and arts festival not a political platform. I want to enjoy music not be surrounded in controversy. If she isnt a musician or artist why should she be there?

    She'll probably introduce Rage, to go along with that whole "one night fistpunching to the Bush administration".

    she'll be preaching to the wrong crowd... wrong crowd meaning music hungry youth that wants nothing to do with politics for the weekend.

    Please stay home.

    Let her have her platform. Only a few are gonna listen, 'cuz there's just too much other stuff going on to fill the time.

    Policies? Feverishly? You're not very smart.

    I don't have much to say about her... I think her methods tend to be a bit on the tacky side, especially when you compare her to someone like Willie Nelson, Sparklehorse, of Montreal, the Arcade Fire, or even LCD Soundsystem. These are musicians who stand for many of the same principles as she does and express them much more eloquently through their art. What's the difference? In their case, it doesn't come off as contrived, disingenuous force-feeding. In hers, I'm not so sure...
