    Default Coachella 2009, Thursday: Setting Up and Camping

    i went in on Thursday to hang out in the campgrounds for a bit. While waiting for the girl with the ability to bust open your aorta with a mere thought to get out of a meeting, i walked the Polo Field as some people were setting up. Here is some evidence from that walk:


















































    A few of us in a tent watching Beirut sound check.





















    Coming up next time: Invading the camp grounds.

    Dammit...I missed your appearance in the campground setup shoot AND the Board Member meetup!!! We were one of the first to setup because, well, because FrozenPilgrim couldn't stand waiting for Coach any longer after Pete picked him up, and I had a private party to work do in the PM. Then, between last minute grabs at home and the friggin' traffic coming in, I think it was after midnite by the time I made it back to camp. That was a trip to see the difference between the campground at 10am and then 12+ hours later!


    Now I'll check out all the good times I missed...

    I had a balloon just like that one on my car all 3 days in the regular parking lot. By the time I got back to my car Sunday night, it was gone. Coincidence? Probably.

    I like the idea of inflatable furniture. I might have to steal that for 'Roo.

    The previous mistakes. The cameras. The lenses. The editing. Appreciation of pictures (taken and painted) and movies. Liking stuff and people and finding them interesting.

    At least we know who the baked potato belongs to now. And he seems to sleep late so I think he has the right idea.
