    Last night while waiting in line to get out of the parking lot, my brother put on his ipod the "i'm on a boat" song from the lonely island, I started laughing but when I did that, I saw this really good looking girl walk in front of our car, she looked at me, smiled back, then looked away and gave us the finger... what the fuck???

    Overheard in the front at main stage: "I can't wait for these shitty ass bands to play so I can see Kanye." Shitty-ass bands in question: DFA 1979, Duran Duran, the Strokes.

    During DFA1979, I was standing next to these two black guys who were trying to get close for Kanye. There were also two black girls who seemed to be huge DFA fans (knew all the words and were getting in the mosh pit) and some awkward white dude comes up to the two black guys and asks, "Hey, are those your girls?" They just laughed.

    Later on in the set, some kid accidentally gets pushed into the two black guys and looks at them with sheer terror in his eyes and yells, "I'M NOT GONNA DO ANYTHING TO YOU, I PROMISE!"

    In the main VIP area: "Oh my God, is that Nicole Richie" (over and over again). Meanwhile that Victoria's Secret Allesandra Ambrosia chick was walking by unnoticed... I'd rather see Allesandra's dusty feet than a naked Nicole Richie.

    Also enjoyed watching a couple clowndicks doing keybumps before & during The Kills set with absolutely no qualms about how much they were obviously knocking off. Rarely do I hope people get busted for shit like that, but I at least hope they got their shit confiscated. There were kids in the crowd for fuck's sake...

    And finally, (and I'm sure we all saw this once) you haven't lived until you've seen someone try to get their first Heineken on Friday and watching their face when "that'll be $9" gets thrown out as they're counting out a few 1's. "Wait, NINE BUCKS?"

    i saw a couple in the sahara tent during a-trak, maybe even afrojack, towards the left end by the sound booth jamming out with two babies--one in a stroller & the other in a baby carrier backpack thing.

    during Strokes some guys only wearing gstrings and body glitter, clearly rolling. Everytime people leaving or trying to go further into the crowd would come by he would take his 'Love Parade' fan and wack everyone that walked by on the butt.

    "Did anyone who was camping in El Dorado 2 Sunday night after Gorillaz happen to pass by the drunken gaggle of fratboys who were passing a bottle of tequila, cripwalking very badly to Girl Talk, and screaming at every passing person: "Coachella, get your dick wet!" I loved how their girlfriends were all sitting down and quietly talking amongst themselves while they told people to "Get your blowjobs, man." I lost it though, when one of them turned to his buddy and said "Get your dick wet, dude", and his friend replies "Man, my
    dick's already so wet, bro..."

    hah yeah that was some friends from my camp, they started encouraging people tp "get their pussy crammed" also, we definitely had some creepers drift around our camp site

    While driving to the day parking there was a guy on the side of the street taking professional pictures of the surroundings. The car in front of me slowed down and the dude in the passengers seat stuck his head out, flipped off the camera dude and shouted "hey, take a picture of this!" in a very serious and angry tone. Poor camera guy was so confused as to what had just happened.

    Some guy asked me and my friend if we had any extra pills. Even if I had ANY pills, they would not have been "extra."

    "I heard A-Trak is playing with Duck Sauce tonight!"

    My campsite was surrounded by a bunch of frat boys, so we heard every bro phrase imaginable, broquito. One dime from them was "I'm ready to rave the shit out of the rave, bro."

    Also a dealer came up to us and started telling us about his endeavors in his entrepreneurship. He told us how he wanted to get candy necklaces, and have every other piece alternating from e and acid and then have a xanax bar where the candy necklaces have the big piece of candy normally. he also was telling us how he wants to start hollowing out ring pops so he can put molly in the middle. Entrepreneurship at its finest.

    And there was this kid at Here we go magic and Gogol who was on something that made him feel good and he was just going wild. We first saw him at Here we go magic running around, and he ran up to me, put his hands on my shoulders, looked me in the eyes like he was going to kiss me and then ran off blowing kisses to me. Then during Gogol he jumped the T barrier and went to the other side and a security guy came up and yelled at him saying he better not do that again and the kid turned around and yells "YOU BETTER NOT DO THAT AGAIN AND WATCH WHO YOU'RE TALKING TO" then he shook the guard's hand and ran off. Then later in the set, I saw him stand on the front rail and do some sort of dance and after it, he jumped the front rail to VIP and was quickly escorted away. Then literally within 3 minutes he was back to the front rail trying to climb up and jump on the crowd to crowd surf. After that I think security was done with his drugged out antics and took him away. It was pretty entertaining to watch.

    Not something I saw or overheard, but I smelled DMT multiple times in the Sahara during Sphongle. Yes, I know exactly what it smells like.

    Too much!!!

    Ok, I feel kinda guilty about this, but...

    During Omar Rodriguez-Lopez' set, the guy just in front of me texted something like the following

    -Hey, does Cedric sing for Omar's band?
    -Has a beetle tattooed on his arm...
    -He looks way different. Did he change the way he looks?

    Also, some local guy named "Mike" and I struck up a conversation right after DFA. He was about my age and we started swapping stories about shows in days past. When I told him I saw Montrose in 1979 he exclaimed "you saw Montrose?", grabbed me and kissed my cheek square. Whoa! Who knew you could still get someone excited about Montrose? I tell ya, this Coachella thing...

    Oh, I was also especially fond of the kid who walked past me after Animal Collective and said to his
    friends : "...that was the only thing I've been really into so far"

    Actually said to me by the guy searching my backpack-

    Guy: Any cans, bottles, alcohol?
    Me: No sir.
    Guy: Any weed, any drugs?
    Me: Nope.
    Guy: I thought you came here to party?
    Me: No need for drugs. The music will get me there.

    (Actually I didn't say that last part, I thought of it after I scanned my wristband. But it makes for a better story and that's the one I'll be telling)

    Underage girl melts down after getting called out on her drunk driving habits by other shuttle riders

    As we’re leaving the parking lot on the shuttle, we pass a cop with flashing lights sitting at an intersection directing traffic. The girl a few rows up from up starts tripping:
    “Holy Shit, I get so paranoid every time I see a cop car, especially when they are stopped like that”.

    She goes on to explain how she just turned 20 and already had 2 drunk-driving arrests. She gets into great detail about drunk-driving checkpoints and how they fool you into thinking they are just a Drivers License checkpoint. She complains that her parents are going to take away her BMW if they have to keep paying all the fines and legal fees.
    Then, the couple behind her get relentless and start giving this girl so much shit for all this and how she cares more about losing her BMW than hurting herself or killing someone else. Even though the couple’s case is rock-solid, they don’t give up and continue to rub in how awful of a person this drunk-driving addict is.

    They rest their case, and then some dorky 50 y/o man sitting across the aisle gives a fist-pump in support of the ridicule. The couple pipes up again and then another girl a little further back yells out how ‘yesterday’ was the birthday of a friend who got killed by a drunk driver and she really wished that everyone would just shut the fuck up about all this.

    The drunk-driving addict finally breaks down and balls the rest of the way home, off the shuttle, and through the Embassy Suites where we got dropped off. Hopefully her friend who was consoling her added some sense to this situation for her.

    i think the funniest/most depressing thing i saw all weekend (and possibly at coachella period) was the drug addict who somehow fell in with our camping group saturday evening/sunday day. he spent the majority of saturday night talking a big game about how "this is coachella bro, you gotta go big or go home. tomorrow's the day, you gotta do it up right, this separates the men from the boys." and then proceeded to never shut up about how many drugs he'd already done, and planned on doing.

    sunday evening i and my gf found him totally gone (as in almost unresponsive) in our campsite, staring at the sky. he'd been there all day apparently, hadn't seen a single band.

    i guess thats how you "go big". i on the other hand had a fucking blast dancing my ass off all weekend and enjoying the actual festival.
