Does anyone here watch the US version of Shameless? I did the stupid thing and watched the whole series over the last couple months so now I'm completely caught up and I have to wait each week for a new ep like some chump! This is torture, the last few weeks I'll find myself jonesing for the show every few days. (But don't spoil me on Sunday's ep, I haven't had a chance to watch it yet 'cause my mom insists on watching with me.)
Just checking in to see how everyone is doing on their mixes...
Anyone done and ready to send it out? Anyone stuck and can't get the songs they wanna use to fit together right (like me)? Anyone completely forget about this and haven't even started yet? No matter what stage you're at, hopefully we'll all be flooding the mail with some awesome mixes this weekend!
And to maybe get the creative juices flowing for those that haven't finished yet, thought I'd post some of the cover art from mixes I've made in the past:

Asleep by 1?? I'm not even back at camp by then; I'm pretty sure there's still music going on at that time.
Since it seems like you'll be pooping these easily accessible alternative chunes while I'm still in the venue, I'm fine with you spending your money on renting a generator. And I'll try not to be too loud when I come crashing back through the campground after 1, but I can't make promises for everyone else.

This is true. I believe I mentioned that I went to see Sex and the City 2 after and it was much better than the concert.
Things might have changed; other people might have a differing opinion, James Mercer might no longer be the most boring performer ever, their set list might be longer than 45 minutes now that they have 2 albums, so I wouldn't say you should definitely skip them. I mean, if you really like them on record at least check it out for yourself with a plan b just in case.

If your only concern is money, it is probably cheaper for 2 people to fly to LA and rent from there. Last year our rental from LAX came to just over $200 to and from Coachella. Flights were $250 return for me from Bellingham for myself. It is also way faster than driving all the way, obviously.
Don't forget I used my airmiles on the rental last year so we were just paying for one day's rental and taxes on the whole thing. Not sure how much it would've been otherwise.
At this point I'm starting to believe the rumours that Pemberton isn't gonna happen. They said they'd have the lineup out mid-January and now February is almost over with no news....
And of course, the 3 acts I'd be most into seeing at Squamish (Arcade Fire, Lykke Li and Pete Tong) are each on a different day. I think the chances of me going to this thing have just gone even further down.
I had no idea how much tickets had gone up in price this year! The GA/shuttle combo pass was $335 in 2012 and it's $435 this year, and even the regular GA were only like $310 after fees etc. back in 2012.
YESSSSS! As I've seen people breathe/blow fire form atop their Rv's. Chicks with dreads continually fall from the Redbull truck,walking party lines of 50 people crash through campsites yelling Sasquatch, and that one time the group took the unparty wanting folks in their tent, picked them up and moved their tent 50ft away from it's original location... PREPARE FOR THE GOLDBEARD AND ALL THE NOOOOISE!
Goddamn, this makes me wish it were Sasquatch right now!
Love you, hope it went well! (Unless my math is wrong and today is not tomorrow. I don't know guys, my brain is broken.)
Thanks all of you guys for your support! After all my fretting, it actually only turned out to be a 45 minute meeting today, but I'll have a 4 hour shift tomorrow! So, you know, another night of butterflies is on the books...
Okay, I tried to go through and double-check everyone's scores and do the scoring for those who hadn't yet but honestly that's just too much math for my brain to handle tonight (and apparently too much for most of you guys to handle too after checking some of your math..) so I've given up and decided to declare the winner is...
Calling the Kraftwerk headlining spot is sexually worthy of a fistpoop and transferable bag slap in my book!
(It was probably actually matt with an impressive 39.5, so feel free to come collect a fistpoop and slap my bag at any point during the fest(s) if you wish.)
