coachella 2013??????????

How much will coachella tickets cost next year and also how much does it cost to camp out on the site for a weekend? (im saving up in advance) how much did the whole experience cost in 2012? I live in OC cali so i will be able to drive up. thanks in advance!

rmahadevan answers:

They’re about $300 for a 3 day pass and they don’t make single day passes so whoever says they are, are lying. You wont find a ticket below $300 too. Camping is like another $60 but your in the venue basically and they also have before and after parties and stuff. Two years ago my brother saw skrillex, 12th planet, a track, le castle vania, and popparazzi just in the camping parties.

George asks…

Steven asks…

Coachella 2013 Dates ect.?

I’ve always wanted to go to Coachella, Im 18 I live in the Uk, so i realize i will need to book flights, transport to Coachella ect.

Are there any age restrictions ect i should know about ?
Does anyone know when the tickets are released for 2013 ?
Also best airports closest to Coachella and easiest way to get there ?

Thankyou !

rmahadevan answers:

I’d advise you to put your plans on hold for a couple of years because of your age. There are no age restrictions at Coachella but you’d be unable to check into a hotel or rent a car. You must be 21 years old in order to legally check into a hotel/motel in California. You’ll have to present a current photo ID and a valid credit card at check-in and the DO check your age. You have to be 25 years old in order to rent a car. So, at 18 or 19 years old you’d be unable to check into a hotel/motel unless you were accompanied by an adult over the age of 21.

In the US you would be considered legally a minor (a child) and have a lot of difficulties traveling.

Did my puppies kill my weeping mulberry tree?

My two puppies pull some bark strips off of my weeping mulberry tree, is this going to kill my tree, or is there anything I should now do to the tree?

rmahadevan answers:

It is a wait and see situation. Be sure to protect it with fencing. Water when needed, but do not fertilize. This might put it into shock.

Lisa asks…

Should I cut back shoots coming from the base of my one-year-old weeping mulberry tree?

I planted a weeping mulberry tree last year. There are about 6-7 shoots coming up from the base of the main trunk. Should I cut these back? The tree is about 7-8′ tall.

rmahadevan answers:

Before you cut anything with your fingernail scratch away the bark just a bit from the main trunk. If it is green then you can proceed with cutting back shoots. It’s May and weather should be fine BUT if you are in a high elevation climate where frost is a possibility then wait until June. If you scratch the trunk and you don’t find green below surface, then you may have to keep going down the trunk until you do find green and cut away all dead wood above that point. If you don’t find any green at all that may be a reason for the shoots.

James asks…

how do you tell the difference between the different types of mulberry trees?

i have this mulberry tree in my front yard and at first my mom was all like its a blackberry tree but blackberries dont grow on trees so i researched it and found out it was a mulberry tree. now i read about it and it said there were like white and black and red and all these other types,but i dont know how to tell the difference between them. any ideas how to tell the difference?

rmahadevan answers:

White has leaves with and without lobes. Red has very large leaves >8″. Black has shiny leaf

Where can you watch Olympic Men’s Hockey games in downtown Vancouver for free?

I live in Burnaby and am looking for a place to watch Men‘s Hockey games for free (or cheap) somewhere in Vancouver or Burnaby during the Olympics (obviously). I can’t legally drink, so bars are out. Do you know of any venues, like BC Place, where you can watch the games?

rmahadevan answers:

I’m pretty sure that both of the LiveCity venues will be showing hockey on their big screens.

LiveCity Vancouver is a little smaller, there’s not too much to see. It’s at the corner of Beatty and Georgia.

LiveCity Yaletown is bigger with a few more pavillions (the 3D tv demo at the Panasonic pavillion is worth checking out). LiveCity Yaletown is at Drake & Pacific. If you are taking transit, it’s close to Yaletown station on the new skytrain line.

Sandra asks…

Hermes berkin price in france?

For size 30 and 35..pls help!

rmahadevan answers:

Above 5000€, depending on the leather, cadenas and details you choose.

There’s a long waiting list, as you know, Hermès handbags are handmade by the same person from A to Z.

I don’t know if it’s better to buy the Birkin in France or not, lots of people from around the world order them by fax at the headquarters of Hermès in Paris, we think that it’s just for the symbol of getting it from the Faubourg Saint Honoré, not to save money.

You can send a fax to Hermès in Paris, telling them that you’d like to buy a Birkin and need to know the delay and price but to do so, you first need to know what you’re looking exactly for, as the price multiplies by ten (or more) depending on the kind of leather and details.

If you plan to buy a Birkin on eBay, purchase only if you can have the original invoice, otherwise, you risk to buy a handbag that has been stolen and you may get into trouble. Each handbag has a number and Hermès knows who bought it.

Sharon asks…

most expensive purse you’ve ever bought?

i was just thinking because i saw on ebay a hermes bag for $80,000. who would spend that much on a purse?

the most expensive purse i’ve ever had was a $200 Juicy daydreamer that I got on ebay for $120

rmahadevan answers:

It was probably a Hermes Birkin bag. They can run to A LOT of money because they are handmade (sometimes up to six-digit prices). They are named after Jane Birkin. They are extremely hard to get your hands on one. I have a lower end one, not nearly as expensive but not exactly cheap. That’s probably the most expensive handbag I’ve ever bought. Amazing quality.

James asks…

do you think Hermes is worth it?

I seriously love fashion, more than most things… huge fashion lover…

but the price of Hermes, do you think it’s really worth it? A purse for a few thousand dollars seems reasonable to me (not that I can afford those either)… but this bag is $32,500.00!

http://cgi.ebay.com/Perfect-Hermes-35cm-Matte-Miel-Crocodile-Birkin-Bag_W0QQitemZ290282990085QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUS_CSA_WH_Handbags?hash=item290282990085&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1205|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1308|301%3A1|293%3A1|294%3A50#ebayphotohosting

It’s handmade crocodile.

Do you think the price is mainly for the status? Or is it only expected that there would be clothing brands that would only cater to the blindingly-rich?

(Because I don’t know about you, but despite my love of fashion, I see endless potential with thirty two grand… that doesn’t involve a purse!)
i did the calculations, and if a person keeps it for fifty years (let’s say she bought it at thirty and stops wearing it at eighty), that’s about $54.00 every month for five years!

…just saying :P
*oops! i meant to say $54 every month for fifty years

rmahadevan answers:

I think they are sooo worth it!! One of my dreams is to own one, wish I was Victoria Beckham sometimes(with hair, though:))!! It’s worth the save, Martha Stewart has had her same one for 20 plus years!! Good craftsmanship is great to save for, I wonder if they’re less expensive in Paris?

Sorry, that’s not cheap at all! Minimum bid of £295 and you have a “non-specified” return policy.

So if it is a fake (and I’m not saying it is) there’s pretty much nothing that can be done about it!

You’d probably get a better price at a second hand jewellers/pawn shop (provided you have evidence that it’s genuine)

Laura asks…

Planning to buy an expensive watch from New York or New Jersey. What are my best retailer options? Please help?

Hi, I’m planning to spend a hefty sum of my savings in December this year, to purchase the Tag Heuer Monaco LS watch. I’ve looked it up online, and there are a few authentic retailers selling it on websites. The List price for the watch is $6500, and it is being sold for $4300 on a couple of genuine watch retail websites.

However, if i want to purchase it from a retailer in new york itself, would they be able to bring down the list price of $6500 to the discounted rate of $4300? I’ll ask for it of course, and it is substantial, but would any good Tag retailer be willing to sell the watch at the discounted rate, as seen on the websites?

Thanks, I’m a little anxious since I would be spending such a big amount in one go. Please do offer your views on the matter.

I once had two large GE plug in and battery clock radio with two different wake-up alarms (each one of the alarms had one that buzzed and let you sleep fifteen minutes more and one that played music to wake you up) that was a cassette recorder/player combination which I believe has gone out of stock forever, used to get them at Best Buy, cost was about $35.

I also used to have a small cassette recorder/player and radio combination that I used to have under my pillow and it had a hook to the ear. The last time I went looking for them I was told all the stores carry now are the cd players (and you can’t record on them, and they no longer have the old style hook for the ear). I finally managed to find a larger version of the cassette recorder/player but it doesn’t fit under the pillow (and it’s not a clock version, although it “is” battery and plug in).
….I still have a lot of cassettes, especially a sleep tape that I like to play.

The First t.v. show?

What was the first t.v. show ever made?

rmahadevan answers:

I’d say that the first ever TV show series (The Queen’s Messenger wasn’t really a series) was Kraft Television Theatre. There were a lot of first broadcasts before that, but this was the first real TV series ever broadcast. All the information is below from a paper I wrote a few years back. I don’t remember the source, but it’s all accurate.

Aug. 22, 1928. WGY simulcasts on radio and TV (WGY, 2XAF and 2XAD) Al Smith accepting the Democratic presidential nomination. This was the first over-the-air remote pickup and the first TV news event.

Sept. 11, 1928. First play broadcast by television, “The Queen’s Messenger,” on W2XAD. (Sound was also broadcast over WGY radio.) Video was on 21.4 meters; sound was on 31.96 meters. The event was reported on page 1 of the New York Times the next day. (During 1928, Ernest Frederik Werner Alexanderson of General Electric transmitted daily TV tests over W2XAD.)

1929. Milton Berle appears in an experimental TV broadcast. Film of the appearance survives.

May 11, 1929. The “first regularly scheduled TV broadcasts” begin (one source), three nights per week.
July 21, 1931. W2XAB New York (CBS) begins broadcasting the first regular seven-day-per-week TV broadcasting schedule in the U. S., 28 hours per week with live pickups and a wide variety of programs. The first broadcast included Mayor James J. Walker, Kate Smith, and George Gershwin.

May 31, 1938. W2XBS telecasts the movie The Return of the Scarlet Pimpernel, starring Leslie Howard; the staff projectionist played the last reel out of order, ending the film 20 minutes early. After this incident, NBC could not obtain first-run movies for many years.

Apr. 30, 1939. President Roosevelt is the first President to appear on television, from the New York World’s Fair on W2XBS, now transmitting on 45.25 MHz visual and 49.75 MHz aural.

June 1, 1939. First heavyweight boxing match televised, Max Baer vs Lou Nova, form Yankee Stadium

July 1, 1941 W2XBS New York NY becomes a commercial station, changes call to WNBT (later calls WRCA-TV, WNBC-TV). At 1:29 p.m., General Mills sponsors a Brooklyn Dodgers-Philadelphia Phillies game, followed by the “Sunoco Newscast” with Lowell Thomas. At 9:15 p.m., “Uncle Jims Question Bee,” hosted by Bill Slater and sponsored by Spry, made its one-and-only appearance and, at 9:30, Ralph Edwards hosted “Truth Or Consequences,” simulcast on radio and TV and sponsored by Ivory Soap. This was the first game show broadcast on TV. The world’s first (legal) TV commercial for Bulova watches occurs at 2:29:10 superimposed over a test pattern. According to a 2004 article in Newsday: “On July 1, 1941, the world’s first television commercial aired on NBC, at that time known as WNBT-TV. The 10-second advertisement for Bulova clocks and watches consisted of the image of a clock and a map of the United States, with a voice-over that announced, ‘America runs on Bulova time.’ The ad was broadcast before a game between the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Philadelphia Phillies and cost the Woodside-based company less than ten dollars.” [According to microfiche records at the FCC, WNBT was granted a C.P. On 6/17/41 for Channel 1 (50-56 mhz.), effective 7/1/41. License to cover the C.P. Granted 6/17/41, eff. 7/1/41. First operation was granted to be effective 7/1/41. The first listed call letters were WNBT. They changed to WRCA on 10/18/54 and to WNBC on 5/22/60.]

May 7, 1947. Kraft Television Theater premieres on NBC, the first regularly scheduled drama series on a network

Dec. 27, 1947. Puppet Television Theater (later called Howdy Doody Time), debuts on NBC TV with Buffalo Bob Smith. It was carried by six stations.

June 8, 1948. Milton Berle Show premieres on NBC.

I didn’t list EVERYTHING that came before the Milton Berle Show, but I just wanted to show that it wasn’t this show that was the first.

Helen asks…

How can you tell if a lip gloss has been used?

I recently purchased a philosophy lip gloss from sephora, one of the ones that’s near the front when you buy all your stuff. it wasn’t packaged and the top is sticky when you open it up. has it been used? how can you tell?

rmahadevan answers:

Usually when you buy one that is sticky or smooshed when you open it,it has been used.

It’s not a really big problem.You could just swipe it down with alcohol and use it and be fine.

But,since you paid full price and ended up with used merchandise,I recommend you call the store’s customer service hotline,and explain your situation.The company/store might be nice enough to send you some coupons to save money off your next purchase.

Buy stuff after christmas sales etc, go to Ulta..they got the same great stuff but sometimes they go on sale and have coupon…B1G1F type thing. It will still cost you but it could cause you less.

Charles asks…

Can my fiance claim me during income tax?

My fiance and I live together in Texas. We have been living together for more than a year now. We have a joint bank account. We have NO children together, but he has three from a seperate marriage that he isn’t allowed to claim. I worked a little this year because I’m in school. I made about 500 on my W2.

Would he be able to claim me, since he took care of our finances? If he is able to claim me, would it hurt how much he got back? Or would he get back more?
Oh! I have another question!

He was supposed to get 600 last time from the stimulus. He only got 300. Would he get the rest of it this time? Or will he get what he didn’t get last time PLUS this new stimulus??

rmahadevan answers:

You can claim an unrelated person as your dependent under the Qualifying Relative rule (yes, I know, it sounds wrong but it isn’t) if ALL of the following conditions are met:

1. He or She is a US citizen or resident.

2. He or She did not file a joint return with another taxpayer.

3. He or She is not the Qualifying Child of another taxpayer.

4. He or She lived in your home ALL year.

5. You provided more than 50% of his or her entire support for the entire year.

6. He or She had less than the personal exemption amount ($3,500 for 2008) in gross income, excluding non-taxable Social Security benefits.

7. Your relationship is not illegal under local law, even if such law is unenforced. These are the states where it violates local law: Florida, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, North Dakota, Virginia, and West Virginia. There are local ordinances against cohabitation in many other states though, so check your local laws first.

For further information see IRS Pub 501. Here’s a link: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p501.pdf

As to the stimulus rebate, if he only got $300 that’s all that he was entitled to. If he’s entitled to more based upon his 2008 tax return he’ll pick that up on the Recovery Rebate Credit line on his tax return. He would not get anything for claiming you as a dependent though as that’s limited to children under age 17 as of Dec 31, 2007.

It depends on what lending company you want to use. Some banks have branches in other countries you will have to shop around for the best interest rates… Call your bank first see what they say.

Richard asks…

Is it actually illegal to own one of these “Counterfeit Watches” or does nobody bother?I am writing in the UK?

I am thinking of buying a Rolex datejust.Is it illegal?

rmahadevan answers:

Don’t know about the UK, but it’s not illegal in the US. Countefeit products are often sold in stores because the store didn’t know they were counterfeit. Of course, when it’s found out, the store usually loses the merchandise through confiscation, but that’s so they can’t sell any more of them. It’s still legal for people who’ve bought them to keep them. (They can’t re-sell them, though, knowing that they’re counterfeit.)

Ruth asks…

How do I make a metal link watch fit if my wrist is too small?

I recently bought a Rolex Oyster Datejust watch. They took out all of the adjustable links but it still isn’t small enough for my wrist (I have a very small wrist). What can I do to make it fit?

rmahadevan answers:

Take it to the watch service centre of a jewellery store or department store. Removing links usually requires specialized precision instruments that would not be found around the home. It apparently requires a lot of skill to remove the links the right way. If the watch service centre says it is not possible to remove any more links, consider buying another watch band. The bands are usually a lot cheaper than the watches themselves. You can try on the bands before purchasing the watch.

Linda asks…

How do I find the resale value of a Rolex?

It is a Rolex Oyester perpetual datejust watch in 18K gold, has been worn once and sits in a box the rest of the time. I would like to sell it on Ebay possible, or one of these Rolex-buyer jewlery stores, but would like to know what price I should ask for it. Any help is appreciated

rmahadevan answers:

Your best bet is to have your Datejust appraised and authenticated by a Rolex authorized dealer.

The appraisal will give you a ball park figure for your asking price when you sell your Rolex. Even if you have the original paperwork, having the time piece authenticated will also assist in the sale, unless you happen to still have the bill of sale (preferably from an authorized dealer,) in your possession that you can furnish if requested.

Also be sure to indicate the reference/model number and beginning of the serial number (ie. Z-serial number.)
