Coachella fallout: Roger Waters pollutes for Obama

Posted on

This is too brilliant not to post, as a coda to the chaos of Coachella’s weekend: Residents of the neighborhoods surrounding the Empire Polo Fields here in Indio awoke this morning to what is being described as “something that looked like snow.” Apocalypse? No! It seems that the plane flying overhead at the end of Roger Waters’ first set, dispensing what we thought was confetti, was in fact dropping thousands of tiny Obama fliers. Can’t decide which part of this news tidbit I find more enjoyable– the extravagance of that gesture, or this quote in the above-linked article from an irate citizen: “All of our gardeners will now have to spend the whole day trying to clean this up.” Indeed.

On a related note, I found someone who signed up to get on the bus with Sean Penn.

Anyone else coming across strange residual Coachella news on the internets? Anyone seen the pig?
