So much on poetv you watch, waiting and hoping for failure. Not here, I wanted him to succeed so hard. Fucking inspirational, is what Im saying.
Needs that victory music from "The Karate Kid" playing overtop...
He looks like he's ready to go shopping for more beer!

I love the one step forward into his flip flop two stumbles back out of both his flip flips.
I'm guessing from the abundance of guys wearing flip-flops here that coachella is some sort of artsy "baby-burning-man" fest?
Its a three day music festival costing $269.00, that spends the money on the most impressive Pitchfork-esque lineups this side of the Atlantic. If I lived near the fool's gold state, I'd attend.
If you think this is the kind of crowd that attends Burning Man, you're probably either sixty years old, or you've been living in a cave.
Hey, it's the internet. I'm SUPPOSED to be dickish and ill-informed.
Wasn't implying that it was dickish 'cause I definitely don't give a fuck if he sullies the good name of either Burning Man attendees or flip-flop wearers. But touche.
Coachella is a scenester music festival where thousands of people pay insane amounts of money to have their picture taken in the audience of *insert relevant music artist here* so they can name-drop it for the next year or so while never actually listening to the music, which I guess makes it sort of like paying lots of money to read Pitchfork or something. When it started, it had some respectability, but soon after it became an exercise in jamming as many names onto a roster of artists as possible to appear outsider-y and faux-edgy, and then actually giving all the main-tent/main-stage time to purely commercial artists, like for example one year when Madonna was the headlining act.
That's all festivals. Look at what happened to Bonnaroo. It's a shame.
Coachella's lineup looked really good. (Pavement!) I know exactly what you're saying, but I have been to enough shows (esp in NYC) surrounded by hipsters & their armfuls of SLR lenses that I can say that there's always going to be at least a few people there for the music, because at least I was.
Basically the cleaner / more upscale the festival is (think Newport or any of the mini ones at Tanglewood) the more people you have going there just to kill time. And the dirtier the festival is, the more people are just there to get loaded.
Really and truly loving music, seeking to constantly surround yourself by it, needing it, makes you a rare breed. So you find people that don't live up to that standard. But whatever, they don't have to. And it's not possible to tell just from looking at someone why they're there. Speaking as someone who has played a lot of shows: it doesn't matter. They paid for a ticket. The band is grateful.

OH NOES! I HAVE OUTED MYSELF AS A PREVIOUS BURNING MAN AND COACHELLA ATTENDEE AND SOMEONE WHO KNOWS PEOPLE WHO ATTEND THE FESTIVALS!!! MY INTERNET CREDIBILITY IS NOW DESTROYED!!
I'm gonna go cry on a stack of vinyl, and hope it doesn't fog my hip ray ban sunglasses.

Dude, you don't understand, there were these totally hot chicks and they were THIS CLOSE to helping me get my flip-flops!
|Lies, lies, LIES! |
I think we've all been there.
The assist at 0:23 makes me feel better about humanity.

Just watching this is very exhausting.
I'm used to jamband festivals so my reaction to every frame was "wait, there are women there? and....showers?"
