Very cool to see myself in what I always consider to be the definitive collection of Coachella photos. Your thread from 09 helped play a role in me wanting to go to Coachella in the first place. Thanks dude.

Some of the common symptoms of addiction are:
- Tolerance - the need to engage in the addictive behavior more and more to get the desired effect Check
- Withdrawal happens when the person does not take the substance or engage in the activity, and they experience unpleasant symptoms, which are often the opposite of the effects of the addictive behavior Check
- Difficulty cutting down or controlling the addictive behavior Check
- Social, occupational or recreational activities becoming more focused around the addiction, and important social and occupational roles being jeopardized Check
- The person becoming preoccupied with the addiction, spending a lot of time on planning, engaging in, and recovering from the addictive behaviors Check
Hi, my name is Beverly and I'm addicted to Coachella. Not a day goes by that it isn't mentioned in conversation, and thanks to Mike Ivankay, seeing pictures almost sends me into a frenzy of anticipation and excitement. Thank you, Mike!

I know lots of others have summed this up more eloquently, but Mr. Ivankay, thank you. I have that lump in my throat and that fire in my belly that just makes me want to tear my hair out and say, April, where the fuck are you!? And it's all because of your wondrous photographs. thanks a million. I lust for more.

You can see the pictures bigger, see pics that didn't make this thread and/or download copies for backgrounds and such. That "such" should not include anything of a commercial nature.

THANK YOU for this Mr. Ivankay. I remember you coming around with your camera as we were setting up our Sultan's Tent in campground 5 - I'm green bandana right after the dead baby (pre-stick). These photos make my ganglia twitch. Going both weekends this time.
Oh - Yacht was amazing!
