Hello again. This will be the official thread for attempts at getting a group shot of those of us willing and able at Coachella for 2013. A group shot will be taken both weekends. Last year the shots happened on Fridays, but this year will be a little different due to my scheduling as the Psychic Friend's picture bitch. The Weekend 1 shot will be early on Saturday. The Weekend 2 shot will be early on Friday. Of course this is subject to change once the line up schedule comes out, we discuss here and the Facebook group set up last year, i clear permission and time gets picked.
WHERE IS THE SHOT?: The shot will take place both weekends in the same spot: In front of the BIG SNAIL with the stage in the background.
WHEN IS THE SHOT?: Time is always discussed here once the schedule has been posted. we go back and forth about the 15 minute window with the least amount of conflicts for most of us. The shot is quick. we meet at the spot, i yell a bunch, everyone lines up (shorties in the front, tallies in the back, if you see the back of someone's head...move your head, etc..), i take a few shots and then you all go your own way. Usually there's a lot of meeting and greeting after and it is pretty nice.
WEEKEND 1 SHOT: SATURDAY @ 1:55PM
WEEKEND 2 SHOT: IF the Snail is not roaming the grounds by 2:45PM tomorrow (FRIDAY) , go to the backup which is the Mirage House at 3PM. If the Snail is roaming, go for the snail at 3PM. Randy had too much joy the snail failed last week. Let's not have this shot be blown on our part. If the Snail breaks down, whadda ya going to do? Meet at the Mirage house on this side:
BUT this is the primary shot at 3PM (where ever it is):
WHO CAN BE IN THE PICTURE?: Anyone reading this EXCEPT those who have the intention of starting shit. Fuck you. This is a love fest. Always has been and always will be. This is an amnesty zone from the bullshit that flares up here. Coachella is a good time. Let's keep it that way. One of the established laws of Coachella is "Don't Be a Dick". Anyway, you probably won't know who is there unless you start a conversation....
IDENTIFYING: i try to get the picture up the night of. i put a plea to one of our fellow board members to take the biggest file and number everyone. Then over time, we all chime in on who we are and i'll up date it in this post.
Hope to see you there!
