Here are some more (not so good quality) photos from coachella. Annie Clark aka St. Vincent did a song with Andrew Bird in the glaring hot sun during weekend two. Radiohead doesn’t need an introduction by any means, and no- I do not think they are overrated. They were in my top 3 favorite performances each weekend (and in life!).
In other news, I just switched to iCloud (by force!) and I hate it so far. My emails don’t come in in order and I’m finding it extremely difficult to get emails when I’m not at home. Grrr. My Coachella 2012 spotify playlist is on constantly and what can I say? I just love to reminisce, even if I’m thinking about last week.
I’ve been a fan of iomoi.com for years, and I am loving their new custom lacquer trays! I could piles these on my coffee table, side tables, nightstand, bathroom, and pretty much anywhere to store anything and everything! I love the top design and the chevron, and the colorful edges on the trays add a great touch, don’t they?
Each tray is created by a vietnamese craftsman(!!!), taking up to 105 days and 17 coats of lacquer (and polishing) to complete. No wonder they cost an arm and a leg! $150 for the smallest size, going up to $275 for the large tray.
This past weekend was my 8th time attending Coachella. I feel old. It’s pretty amazing how many people attend this festival. It’s just a phenomenal experience. You have to try it once! There’s hours and hours and hours of live music by amazing artists, palm trees, a ferris wheel, record store, craft making stations, a robot that rolls around, art installations, Spicy Pie. I swear by the Spicy Pie! It’s the best pizza. Also great is the fish taco stand and Pink’s Hot Dogs.
The atmosphere is unlike any other festival I’ve been to. It’s a little city for what is now two weekends out of the year, where people from all walks of life and all over the planet co-exist. I miss it so much already! Can’t wait for next years festival(s).

2) At the Drive-In
4) St. Vincent
5) Bon Iver
6) Explosions in the Sky
My favorite shows so far have been Radiohead, St. Vincent, and Explosions in the Sky. I think I prefer Coachella when it is 110 degrees as opposed to 50 degrees.
