This better work
A. price being too high - You’d pay waaay more seeing all those bands if it wasn’t at the festival.
B. It’s full of hipsters - LEARN TO IGNORE THEM AND DO YOU.
C. It’s in the desert and it’s hot - seriously?
It’s such a beautiful experience. I legitimately feel sorry for you guys because you’ll never experience this life changing event. It sure as hell changed my life last year.
Tickets go on sale in less than an hour.
If I don’t manage to get weekend 1 tix,looks like weekend two it is again.
so please bear with my one liner posts. thanks.
If I don’t manage to get weekend 1 tickets for coachella and I get them for weekend 2, is anyone willing to let me crash out on their camp spot? I have two sleeping bags and a tent if someone doesn’t have one and I’ll bring a case of beer :)
Preferably other females, thanks.
Quit complaining. I sold pretty much everything I own that’s worth anything other than my car to have enough money for this. Yes, I’m unemployed. Yes I’m broke…to the point where I can’t even drive my car because I haven’t paid for my tags.
Point in this is that if you REALLY REALLY REALLY want to go, you’ll get there no matter what tries to stop you.
See you at coachella and good luck.
I heard she’s very bad live…
I didn’t believe it so I looked up some of her performances on youtube and to be honest…I agree.
I still want to see her and I respect her and her music but I really hope she’s a bit better at coachella.
I really dislike it when people from one ethnic background try to shame others because of them appreciating the beauty in some aspects of the other person’s culture. I’ve seen some minorities get mad over “stupid undeserving white girls” stealing from their culture. Seriously…take a moment to let how racist that sounds sink in.
Ex 1: Indian/Hindu people getting angry over people who aren’t of the same descent wearing Bindis.
Ex 2: Native Americans claiming only they can have dreamcatchers etc.
I understand that those things are highly important to those cultures but seriously, learn to deal with the fact that people of other ethnic backgrounds will find some aspects of your culture beautiful - people should take pride in the fact that others find that aspect of your culture beautiful enough to incorporate into their lives, not get offended over it.
And then, to the people who talk about ripping Bindis off of “white girls”(which people tend to use for anyone who just isn’t of their ethnicity) or breaking a dream catcher that belongs to someone who isn’t a native…I dare you to touch me or my possessions and see what happens.
Not trying to be a bitch but I’m sick of seeing reverse racism.
This coming from a minority. A Latina woman who has been called a “stupid white girl” because I just “look” white.
Please see how silly some of you sound. That’s like a girl saying men can’t wear pink or that anyone who isn’t Mexican shouldn’t be able to own a sarape or sombrero.
If you disagree with me, that’s fine too. It’s the beauty of freedom of opinion and expression. I’m just ranting anyways.
“We’ve been ‘cool’ for a very long time, and in that sense our culture has been taken for a very long time. How do we define when we’ve arrived? It’s not when a young, white girl in Berkley is wearing nice garlands or those nice buddhist beads, or wearing bindi. I don’t feel like my life in anyway has been improved because she has the ability to do that and thinks that’s okay. My life hasn’t improved. The life of my mother has not improved. Our voice as a community within this economic system has not improved.
A good friend of mine, she’s south Indian, and she grew up in Connecticut. Her mom would make her wear her bindi and go to school. She would get harassed by kids… she would be harassed so much that what she would do, is that because she was so ashamed to have that bindi on her head, she would leave her house, wipe it off… and then come home and put it back on.
To the point where a child would have to think about such a deliberate attempt to refute their own culture I think is pretty profound. If there’s a white girl wearing a bindi walking down central avenue in the heights, she’s not considered a dot head, even though she has a dot on her head.
For me, the feeling is disgust and anger. The way I look at it if I see it, I just get so mad because I think, how dare this person be able to wear that, or hold that, or put that statue in her house and not take any of the oppression for that. How dare they. That’s not fair. We have to take so much heat and repression for expressing ourselves.
I’m going to rip that thing off your head, and I’m going to scrub that mehndi off your hands, because you don’t have the right to wear it. Until the day when you walk in our shoes, and you face what we face… the pain, and the shame, and the hurt, and the fear, you don’t have the right to wear that. It is not your right, and you’re not worthy of it. I feel like it’s so superficial and it’s so disrespected. One day, wake up, be me, and then you’ll see how powerful what you’re wearing is. “

Not trying to be a dick or anything but isn’t appreciating the beauty of someone else’s culture a good thing? Not everyone is a prejudiced asshole who will make fun of others for having different practices.
