I was going to post a rant about Comic-Con and the insane hotel situation a couple days ago but a good friend has helped us out of a bind. I was beginning to think I would have to sleep in Mission Bay or stay with my relatives at Sea World or something! Let me tell you, I wasn’t looking forward to have kids gawk at me all day and try to pet me. No thank you. But yeah, we’ll be at Comic-Con. Phil and Brendan are working on planning some meetups and we all are hoping to have our zine done by then to show off to folks. It should be an awesome time!

OK, first question: What is the deal with the question marks next to Thom Yorke? Does that mean Radiohead is playing? Is it Thom Yorke and unknown guests? Is there some new band I don’t know about called the Question Marks? Either way, Day 3 definitely sounds awesome and I am really going to have to consider braving the crowds and the heat to see Pavement, Gorillaz, Thom Yorke and who knows, De La freaking Soul, Gary Numan (I wonder if his mentions on The Mighty Boosh have anything to do with this resurgence), and tons of other great bands. The other days look good, don’t get me wrong. I mean, I’d consider going to Day 1 just to see The Specials, but Day 3 really is irresistible for me. I wonder if the Gorillaz are going to do that crazy Pepper’s Ghost thing they’ve done with some of their previous live shows so the characters are actually on stage. That would be NUTS. Now I just have to stock up on SPF 50 sunscreen as Manta Rays burn pretty quickly. Can’t wait!
So the lineup for Coachella is starting to shape up and I am beginning to think I might brave the sweaty masses of humans this time around. I haven’t been to Coachella since 2004 and that was pretty insane. I nearly lost a chunk of my fin during The Pixies and someone thought I was an inflatable toy during The Flaming Lips. But Devo is confirmed as well as Muse and Phoenix and if even a third of the “Heavily Rumored” bands show up, I will be in heaven. If Pavement is there I will go no matter what. Wowee Zowee indeed.
