The Longest Post Evah! + Coachella 08
It has been soo long since the Wang's last post, that even the Wang himself don't remember much. But since u gentle readers all sit patiently glued to ur RSS feeds of WWW, The Wang figures its about time for another infamous update. Of course, like a good blogger, the Wang keeps notes for things he wants to blog about. But as a bad blogger the Wang will dump the entirety of 1.5 month of stuff in one giant post. This might get long... That's what she said!! (and it might include a lot of random links like that one there.)
First off, the almost two month old post that the Wang should of wrote for Coachella 08'. Since it is very late, The Wang will cut it short.
It was fun.
Here are more photos than u can shake a stick at:
-The Wang's Flickr Coachella 08 Set
-Sunggnus' Flickr He Haz a photo pass.
-Ourcommon's Flickr stuff, very pretty.
-Miss Black's I'm w/ the Band Set
-Girl from Long Beach
-Jackiebutler's Coachella Group.
-Lastnightsparty's photoset (some NSFW stuff)
-LAist's coverage Day 1, Day 2 & Day 3
Damn it, I truly miss the LAist. They were nice enough to post a "where to eat" @ Coachella list. That's right SFist u've been warned, shape up or u r losing ur spot in the Wang's RSS feed.
Some of the memorable moments include The Flogging Molly Mosh out, the Gogol Bordello Mosh Out, which lead to famous drum riding, and yes, you r right, one of those hands holding up the drum is, in fact, of the Wang. The Wang was up front and right. When the the drum flew, the Wang brought forth his super human strength and carried the Gogol Bordello Dancing girl,
Other things of note:
-Best Video Ass Shaking.
-Roger Water Lost his Pig and then found it.
-Prince did his "Second Coming" thing and played for like 3 hrs. The Wang Squad enjoyed it from a distance, safe from the rabid fans. But we did miss the epic music momemnt of him covering "Creep". being Prince, he proceed to remove every video on Youtube of it... thank god the internet is beautiful place. So here it is: Prince Covering Creep.
-The Wang does regret not being able to be at multiple places at once... or to have the willingness to stay late enough to see Fatboy Slim
Of course the rest of today's Giant Panda Post will be paw style... one after the other. A lot of crap. Feel free to skip around or go back to your pron. Also, some of these things might be month old news.

An article translated from a "removed" article on South China Weekly about the shady digital crack that is ZT online. This either gives MMO a bad name, or points out exactly what type of games that the Chinese gamer want. ZT Online basically allows anyone to buy, legally, their character to the top levels.

Nude Remix by James Houston. Done with old tape drives and printers. Awesome.
Jesus Phone Round 2. But why do we keep letting Apple get away with this crap though? the Wang thinks that if these were the specs for iPhone 1, we'd all be worshiping the new Apple religion, but really to release the iPhone 2 one year after that stepping stone, known as iPhone 1 is just an insult to consumers. Specially now with stuff like 4G tech rolling around. We really need to stop giving Apple the free pass on coming out with mediocre tech, slapping an Apple logo on it, and call it the next coming. Innovation people, Innovation! P.S. The Wang is getting ready for the July 10 iPhone line infront of the Apple stores, who's with us?!

Wow, that was a load of stuff, If you are still with us, I applaud you, if not, we'll see u next time the Wang's text files is filled and must be dumped into a blog post. Actually, we should have one up pretty soon. As the main motivation to this post, is because the Wang wants to review a pair of movies that is so awesome, that it almost rivils the Awesomeness of Fantasy Mission Force" but with 20 gallon more blood, PER scene!!
Until then, the balcony is closed.
