When I was walking out of Coachella 2012 (weekend 2, if you must know) on Sunday night, some guy said, “Coachella is a hologram.” Then everyone started to cheer and chant, “Coachella! Coachella! Coachella!” Even after the music was over, it was exhilarating. So, since I can’t seem to think about anything else but this past weekend, I’m going to share my favorite moments. It’s the strangest thing – I am always aware that this festival is going to be a thrill (it has been every year for the past three years), but somehow, it just gets better and better. Coachella is like wine, it gets better with age.
Camping in lot 5 (it was literally like 7 minutes from the festival grounds)
Radiohead – i have cuts on my ankles from dancing, I’m hoping it’ll leave a scar
Radiohead – listening to There There live again, it’s always amazing
The Hologram (you know what I’m talking about)
Justice! – dancing to “We Are Your Friends” with my friends
Discovering Gaslamp Killer
The kid who was bobbing his head with his middle finger in the air at the Gaslamp Killer show
Eating nachos and a blueberry lemonade
Walking like a zombie after Radiohead
Sneaking food in
The box on top of my friends head that said, “I’m famous”
Letting my phone die
Living first, taking pictures later
Dancing in the sun
Dancing under the stars
My friend winning a VIP pass
The beautiful couple at the Goyte show
The moment Swedish House Mafia started playing and I realized where I was
When the audience at the Goyte show started to sing Kimbra’s part of “Somebody I Use To Know”
So Facebook is buying Instagram. I gotta say, it’s a smart move; Facebook is taking over social networking one application at a time. The thing is, if Instagram turns into this shitty Facebook-Twitter-Instagram hybrid, I’m pulling the plug. Instagram is strictly photos and captions.
It’s the end of an era. I don’t know what to do. Should I stay or should I go? I wish I had a better sense of direction right now. My future is so important to me, and it scares me. It’s the only thing that scares me. I am so afraid of making the wrong choice.
