the three best things i saw at coachella

2014 is half over which makes me wanna look back and give thanks

to the killer things ive gotten to see so far.

one thing i didnt expect to be as fun as it was was coachella.

i thought it would be too hot, and that id get too tired and the music would blow

but no it was great and miss lana del rey was a desert oasis

she opened her set with the provocative Cola which spilled out into the front row


the replacements were the main reason i was there and Paul hurt his back

so they pulled out a couch for him to lay on

and life pulled out Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day to play with them

on pretty much every song. he even sang I’m In Trouble while Paul lounged.

typical unpredictable Replacements action for 75 minutes.

arcade fire played so long coachella shut their mics off

but that didnt stop them from being awesome

they did one little acoustic victory lap around so everyone knew what to sing

as they all went on their long journeys to their cars in the parking lot

of course this jinxes everything, but

tom morello and ernie banksi will never wear anything under a baseball jersey except a heavy metal concert tee.

i will never trade arms for hostages.

i will never give any solicitor money while im dining out at a restaurant.

i will never read 95% of the books in my house.

i will never eat 50% of the food in my freezer.

i will never donate my amazing tshirt collection to the poor even though i love giving things to the poor.

i will never spend more than $20 on shorts, $25 on a shirt, or $30 on pants even though i would wear them forever.

i will never trust one two three four five people ever again.

i will never go to a Cris Angel show again

i will never jaywalk across sunset again on cinco de mayo.

i will never believe that music without guitars can hold a candle to music with guitars.

with that said, i will never stop being amazed by art tatum, the hendrix of jazz piano.

i will never again ask a woman working at a fast food restaurant how many months along is she.

i will never buy a washer dryer for this apartment but i still look at the ads in the paper all the time.

i will never own a gun.

i will never go mountain climbing.

i will never stop drinking coca cola no matter how many kidney stones it creates.

i will never take down my bedroom Christmas lights.

i will never stop writing on the world famous busblog.
