I've said before that there's something I love about Depeche Mode's frankness, though some find them blasphemous. I went to the Coachella festival. Little did I know that it's basically Woodstock in the desert. OK, that's not completely true. There were alot of people smoking out and I'm sure there were a few people tripping on acid or Ecstasy. There were alot of people who were drunk. But there were just as many people who weren't. I wasn't. I went as press to write concert reviews.
I was hanging out in the press tent when I met a man who...
lives in New York.
Savvy: Oh, wow, you live in NYC?
Savvy: I used to live out there. It was great.
Visit: Where do you live now?
Savvy: Out here.
We then compared notes about who we went to see an what we thought of them and then walk out to the field to watch another band.
Savvy: I thought Vampire Weekend was awesome.
Visit: Vampire Weekend? I can't stand them. They sound like they ripped off Paul Simon.
Savvy: Actually, they don't if you really listen to both. In any case, the lead singer is really great at working the crowd and he had everybody singing along.
Visit: Those are the bands that really last.
Savvy: I'm telling you, I think they have what it takes.
Visit: So you said you sing opera, I'd love to hear you sing sometime.
Visit: Yeah, opera is amazing. that takes some real talent.
Savvy: Well, I'm not doing it right now, but I might get back to it.
Visit: Yeah, I think you should. Can I be honest with you?
Savvy: Um, sure.
Visit: Every time you lean in to talk to me, I look down your shirt.
Savvy: Um, really? What do you see?
Visit: I imagine you singing opera while you straddle me.
Savvy: Oh, really? I think that really naughty.
Visit: I think you're thinking about it every time you lean in close to me.
I sit blot up right and then check out my shirt. I don't think he can actually see anything. I think he's imagining it. I start laughing. I can't believe this anymore. I didn't come here to get some action and I sorta thought press would be safer. Guess it's only safer when you're in your home town.
Visit: Do you have backstage or camping access?
Savvy: No. I see you do. I did get to go backstage for a few interviews, but they brought me back with them. It was the only way I could go.
Visit: This band isn't that good. Let's get out of here.
Savvy: And go where?
Visit: Back to my campsite.
Savvy: Oh, you have a campsite? I thought about getting one, but I didn't want to be camping by myself.
Visit: Yeah, but what do you think?
What do I think? I think this is really bizarre. I think I haven't kissed anyone in a few months and I turned down someone from one of the bands earlier that day telling him he was married and I don't do anything with married men. I think I wish I had married very young because I would have been spared much of this BS. I always dreamed of being with someone really nice who loves me and respects traditional values and wants to wait until we get married. I think I have to dumb this one down for him.
Savvy: I'm really flattered, but I would only go "camping" with someone who is my boyfriend and who cares about me.
Visit: Just because it's just one night doesn't mean someone doesn't care.
Savvy: That's not what I mean. I mean there are things I would only do with someone who is my boyfriend.
Visit: Well, I won't lie to you. It's really difficult to make something work long distance after meeting and having a great time together. But I'm here until the 23rd...
Savvy: I know myself and I know what I'm looking for and I've been waiting a long time for someone who really cares about me.
Visit: Alright then, well I think I'm going to go back to my tent. I'm really tired. But keep in touch.
I'm sure if any girl were dumb enough to actually fall for his BS lines that he would have said about the same thing in the morning. "That was amazing. Keep in touch."
I often wish I were a man. Since I don't have anyone looking out for me, I can sort of see why men used to guard women so carefully. They knew the one thing that many women can't seem to figure out. Alot of men are up to no good.
I'm trying to figure out why some men think that we ladies are the evil ones. Why I don't just outright hate men like some men hate women at this point is beyond me.
