he carries a martini
made of bathtub gin

"Music is a spiritual expression of what's in your heart. Music as a way of getting rich is a pretty new thing, and I often wonder if the mega-bucks glitzy atmosphere is making the quality of music suffer. You have to work really hard to get around that and remember why you're in it in the first place: because you have to be. It's like an addiction. You can't go a day without picking up your guitar. To me, the only commercial goals that are really valid are, 'Boy, I wish I didn't have to go to work. I wish I could do this all the time."
-Trey Anastasio

I think I will name him Marco (Esquandolas)

Last night I bought a new car...drum roll...
2003 Honda Element EX 4WD. i was kinda unsure about the looks, but they have grown on me. I actually like that I get an opinion from people. Some people think its really cool, some people think they are the ugliest cars on the road. I like the way it looks and it stands out- its much cooler than owning a 4runner or Xterra like EVERYONE else. Besides, people tell me all the time that Phish sukks, and I dont listen to them, so why should i listen to anyone else about my car? I like it.

If you have never been in one, you seriously need to check it out. The inside functionality really sold me. Its the perfect camping/roadtrip car, has an amazing sound system, is awesome for mountain biking or getting to the slopes, plus it has the Honda engine which will run forever and gets good gas mileage.

It is boxy, but at least it gives you a taste in your mouth rather than just another car. I would much rather stand out than go with the flow.

Coachella- I'm glad I went, but i'll never go back again. There were too many hassles in the campsites and too many rules at the venue for my taste. I think that if you ever go, you should get a hotel in Palm Springs. I had fun, but it was really really hot (over 100 degrees both days) and there were a lot of rules inside the festival that were bad, too- no ins and outs, restricted drinking areas, and you couldnt bring water inside the venue. Plus, we couldn't even drink in the campsites and parking was a hassle…the list goes on. Im glad i went, I had lots of fun meeting new friends and rolling w/my box set, but i learned my lesson- never go to a festival in the desert.

Music/Shows wise, Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips in the bubble was a definite highlight- if you havent heard about it, here is a pic:

I thought Radiohead was good (as always) and I also enjoyed Muse, Electric Six, and Sage Francis. (check out this link ) but I thought most everyone else i saw was a little flat. its too bad, really, cause on paper it looked great. Maybe I have a bad attitude, but it wasn’t as good as i thought it could have been. I guess its tough no matter what happens when its that hot.

Looking forward to Bonnaroo next month...May is going to go by fast- I walk across the Graduation stage May 15.
