The Coachella Website changed today. Visiting Coachella.com now yields the message above. Click the image to enlarge, or read the message below:

We’re excited to announce Coachella 2012 will be held over TWO WEEKENDS.

In an effort to try and accommodate everyone who wants to experience the festival, COACHELLA 2012 will be two separate events, held over two consecutive weekends. We will attempt to produce two identical festival weekends. That means same lineup, same art, same place, different people.

We know many of you were unable to attend this year’s festival because passes sold out much sooner than anticipated. We were truly surprised by the overwhelming response and remain honored by your passion and enthusiasm. We also know some of you purchased through non legitimate sources and were inconvenienced, gouged or totally scammed. We hope that these changes will give everyone the opportunity to purchase directly from Coachella.com.

Passes go on sale beginning this Friday, June 3rd, 2011, at 10am PST until the following Friday June 10th, 2011, at 10pm PST. This advance sale will be the only opportunity to take advantage of the Coachella Payment Plan. Passes will be available through a payment plan of 10% down and 8 equal monthly payments OR by payment in full. The price of three-day passes remains at $269 plus fees for the sixth consecutive year.

Coachella Weekend 1 – April 13-15, 2012 | Coachella Weekend 2 – April 20-22, 2012

I’ll be buying a ticket to the first weekend if I have to pick when I purchase. What do you think of having the event be identical over two consecutive weekends?

Yesterday’s picture is of a house near my apartment that has a fence covered in snapdragons. It looks pretty rad, even if the rest of the proprty is unkempt.

It was two months ago that I posted the mp3 for “Civilization,” the latest from French electro-duo Justice. Now you can check out their apocalyptic video for the song.

This is Friday’s picture getting posted a bit late. The building I live in was built in 1909 and this is in the community laundry room. I wonder how long it has been since it was last used?

With a beautiful sunny day earlier in the week, Sadie and I took to Memory Grove for a walk. She took advantage of a bit of calm water to take a dip in City Creek to cool off.
