In addition to the #hashtagsareforidiots #1 threat to america, I had a Bears & Beets & Battlestar Galactica shirt which I was wearing when I met you and Chaco.
So yeah, I guess I was wearing the blue shirt Sunday; now I remember, I wore the green "with great moustache comes great responsibility" shirt Friday, Bears & Beets Saturday, and #hashtagsareforidiots #1 threat to america Sunday (the baby blue one Know spotted).
I also had a blue baseball cap that said "Bears" on it in brown, and a glowing orange baseball cap with a bear paw on it (J-Dawg custom special).
I'm not sure which of the above you saw me rocking, but it all made an appearance during the festival.
The glowing bear paw hat was the best. I had some girls come up to me at Miike Snow. They were all like, "dude your hat is so awesome. GRRRRRRR".
I laughed for a while after that. I've never had a girl come up to me and say GRRRR before.
So much to say, so little time. I checked out Jeff Mangum's Coachella set last night, saw he didn't play 'Naomi', freaked the fuck out for a minute, collected myself, and fanagled a way into tonight's Seattle show (means cannot be disclosed at this time)
What a genuinely talented musician and a funny guy to boot. He indeed played 'Naomi', with a cellist. Yes. I am satisfied, and can now leave for southern California at midnight. Peace out y'all, I'm gonna go do what you did last week.
PS. HG: I got you phone #hashtagsareforidiots # from FB; expect a Jon Benjamin related text message next week.

Pretty much any Mangum song I wanted to hear was played when I saw him. "Naomi" was definitely close to the top of the list too. He played that and "Song Against Sex" and "Engine" so I was definitely well off. (If that gives you even more hope you didn't need.)
Also, however disappointing that Radiohead set might have been. I could imagine everything being redeemed when they closed with "Paranoid Android." Anyone have that experience?

Whoa weird, looking at the setlist now, it looks pretty nice. Not too overkill on new stuff. Strangely enough (good thing to me), a lot of Hail to the Thief songs. Wouldn't have expected that. If they added "Just" in there, that setlist woulda been damn near great for me. Subjectiveness is the key here, though, I guess.
Souly wasn't getting texts back from anyone Thursday or Friday and then she lost her phone some time on Saturday.
While the phone service at the festival was pretty inconsistent, I can confirm that Catherine most certainly sent Souly at least 1 text a day from Thursday - Sunday... Whether Souly received them, however, is an entirely different matter.
hahah! have we confirmed whether ginger on ginger is an actual fetish yet?
Funny story, I went to google something on Zeph's iphone, and "ginger on ginger" was DEF in the search history. She tells me that the only mildly entertaining thing that popped up was some kind of article about an affair involving a political Dr. Garbanzoure.

I re-watched Radiohead's set last night. Fucking wow! I can't believe that so many people are doggin' on their KoL stuff. All the new songs were the best ones. What a freakshow that band is, I'm astounded by their ability to consistently tap into some kind of new, dark, and beautiful magic each tour. Their stage set up is spectacular as well.
Man, Coachella YouTube reruns with your ears swallowing your headphones into your skull is too much goddamn fun!
