When you get a ride off the eplaya

this has been bugging me for awhile. i got a ride from the eplaya. I had little money but needed a ride to transport a few things for an art project. i took my chances and found a guy who was willing to give me a lift in exchange for helping setup his camp. i was not camping with them. i thought i f...

Re: Mostly White People or Just a Lot of Playa Dust?

(As if it even matters.) Yup it matters, at least to me. There were more people of color there this year than before, visibly. It was cool to see and be a part of. I'm glad this issue is brought up no matter how much it bugs some folks. Props2Hoopes! I know a lot of folks who won't travel through s...

Food

I was given a lot of food, good food not playa food, because some people brought way too much. The food made my body feel really good. Another gift was entering a misting camp near sVirgins. A man hailed me down while I was on my bike and offered mist as well as a place to rest for awhile. I didn't ...

Re: Would BM exist without drugs?

Just curious. It was a beautiful event (my first BM) but I wonder if there was no such thing as E or shrooms if the burn would be such a grand event. Any thoughts? I'm a vet and I don't use drugs. Hopefully, it would exist without the dope/fire water. I think a lot of noobs go to bm to test drugs, ...

Re: What Constitutes An ART CAR?

Anybody know how many tickets/citations were written for vehicles? I saw a lot of cars I just don't think were art either. Apparently, it's up to the dmv and it's guidelines, although written, are wishy-washy. Basically, it depends on who does the vehicle inspection. Glad I have tons of pictures of ...

Hey NOOB, lets burn the BS

Some random stuff. BM illusions are funny. Don't buy the hype (Leave no trace/radical free expression). hahahahaha. Too many people were walking/biking across the playa without water, looking like zombies. 30,000+ people isn't amazing. Any given Sunday more than 30,000 pack a stadium. And yes, there...

You're not on the list

is a major reason many art projects took till thursday/friday to complete. Total lack of vols this year, not those with bmorg. Usually, all an artist has to do if more hands are needed is to go to centre camp or the vol board and ask. but this year there were very few extra hands to help. i met a lo...
