Highlights included the LUMINEERS, SOCIAL DISTORTION, VAMPIRE WEEKEND, and RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS. Social D always puts on a good show. I was walking to and from my car for the whole thing, but they sounded great. The Lumineers were good. Vampire Weekend sounded very good and were really tight as a band. RHCP were a little off to me. They just weren't nearly as tight. There were a few times when it seemed like they were trying to "jam" or change things up, but it didn't sound like the band was on the same page from time to time and missed a few beats. Most surprising thing about COACHELLA - No mosh-pits. I realize it ain't a metal show, but I've seen mosh-pits in some really stupid places. I thought one or two would breakout during the uptempo portions of Chilli Pep's performance. But no. I was quite happy to be wrong. I hate mosh-pits. Didn't see anyone flying "horns" at the show either. Which I was also thankful for. Again, I've see people flying horns in lots of places they don't belong. (MUSE for example)

Although I'd be against it, I had a preminition this morning, that Tim Tebow will wind-up with the Dallas Cowboys prior to the 2013 season.
Here's why - It's widley believed that the Jets will release Tebow this offseason, and that no clubs have expressed an intrest in him. That means that Tebow will come cheap to whoever picks him up. The Cowboys have been very quiet this off season, and haven't made any significant moves during free-agency thus far. One of the reasons, is that they don't have a lot of money to spend. However, Jerry Jones is a big fan of creating a splash, grabbing headlines, and generating publicity for his team. Picking up Tebow wouldn't cost much at all, but would generate millions in publicity.
Here's why it's stupid - There's no need for him. He'd be the third-string QB, and would only be used the way he was with the Jets, which was a joke and complete failure. Plus, the constant distractions his presence would cause, would do nothing but harm a team that already has enough trouble with focusing. And then there would be all those moronic Romo-haters who would start chanting "Te-bow! Te-Bow!" the first time Romo throws a pick. Oh, and then there's the Cowboy's 2nd string QB - Kyle Orton. The guy who lost his job to Tebow back in Denver. Orton would walk off the team in a heartbeat, Tebow would become Romo's back-up, and the Cowboys would be even worse off than before.
So again, I'd be STRONGLY opposed to such a move. But based on the Cowboys offseason moves thus far, they just might be stupid enough to do it.
I'm a Dallas fan for life, and will stick with them no matter what. But I have been VERY disappointed with our offseason so far, and I'm very pessimistic about what the 2013 season has in store for us.
Anyone else watch the show FACEOFF on SyFy? Really like it. Sparks immagination and creativity. Hollywood / Sci-Fi make-up artists creating the coolest Haloween costumes you can imagine.
Next time you listen to "Closer" from Tegan And Sara, imagine Billy Idol singing the song. It totally works! Kinda like imagining Bruce Springsteen any time you hear "Runaways" or "When You Were Young" from The Killers.
Didn't watch the Oscars last light. #1 - The Walking Dead was on. #2 - I've yet to see any of the nominees. The last movie I remember seeing in a theatre was The Artist.
