    Yeah, the totems suck. One of the worst experiences I had was during Classixx, when someone thought it would be REAL FUNNY LOL to inflate and pass around two inflatable "naked" blow up dolls with giant inflated dicks. Just leave that shit at home for your next foam party, you fucking frat morons.

    The blow up dolls were actually given out during STRFKR's set.

    It didn't help that the video screens during the sets kept focusing on the totems, umbrellas, girls on shoulders and glorified them.

    During Little Dragon we went early to get a good spot, got a good spot.. and then as soon as she starts the people at the front rail lift up this large square poster with nothing important on it. Now if it wasn't for this stupid thing, I would have been able to see everything perfectly, being 5'1 that is very important to me. While getting more and more annoyed I ask my friend if we should nicely pass by everyone and tell that guy to put it down. I usually don't wiggle my way up to the front cause its rude, but this sign was so annoying I didn't give a rats ass, and we weren't that far. So we nicely get up there, some people giving us weird looks as we say "we are gonna tell them to put that down" and they then let us right by. The guy puts down his sign and we get a big roar of applauds and thanks from the other short girls and their boyfriends. He tried to put it up again and I gave him a death stare a "NO" finger and he said he was looking for his friend, and we told him that doesn't mean he should block everyone's view in the process, they then left to go meet said friend. Fuck all signs, wands, blow up whatever the fucks. I hate them all. End rant.

    Deadbaby is alive and well, though he has seen better days. He got mauled by security a couple years back and we had to tape his head back to his body. So now he limits his appearances to the dome in the campgrounds....

    Excellent! I'm applauding!
    Ban flags. Ban totems. Stop blocking my view of the stage.

    Way too many flags during certain performances. Fortunately, I was was in front of all those flags. At least there was "Anti-Flag" this year.

    GV, can you please have security actually enforce the no totems policy this year? Last year was horrendous with all the shit above the crowd. Clear sight lines was one of those things that really helped distinguish Coachella from every other festival. We pay to see the performers. Do us, the fans, a solid and please enforce a policy that worked so well until recently.

    It really is the worst major festival in the country. It's worse than Lollapalooza if you can believe it.

    the "chair zones" are the absolute worst thing about ACL. also, the most flags of any US festival by far.

    Honestly, the chairs aren't so bad during the day because there is a chair line so they aren't too close to the stage, but at night after the headliners finish, they just stay and sit there to wait for the standing crowd to move past them. It's like navigating a minefield in the dark with the added bonus of people yelling at you for stepping on their blanket. It's honestly the worst thing about ACL.

    It was like that too at Bottlerock, except last year for some reason, they decided not to enforce the chair line rule (where no chairs are allowed past the soundboard area) and people had chairs and shop set up like 5 feet from the stage (not kidding). I can't tell you how many fights and arguments I saw break out over people stepping on blankets, chairs, and "personal space" others had claimed, especially during OutKast when it got really crowded. A fist fight broke out behind me due to some dude trying to squeeze past and stepping on another dude's chair/blanket set up. Fucking ridiculous.

    Also doesn't help that C3 oversells it.

    Interesting....

    Made me think of some other strange group names. A group of porcupines is called a prickle, and a group of hippos is called a thunder.


    Anyway.......flags are waaay out of hand. At Austin City Limits, the crowds looked like a battle was going on. Every little group had their symbol and standard bearer - like little ancient armies.

    There are better ways to find your friends......we are going with 2 way radios.
