Lost: white jacket with LEDs

Did you pick up a lost coat on playa this year? Use this handy checklist to confirm that you are holding my coat: [ ] It's white (well, now playa-colored), waist-length, with heavy but not moopy fur [ ] You found it on Thursday morning somewhere between the trash fence and 4:30/esplanade (it was ret...

Re: New Burningman Ticket Process - 2012

A lot of posts have predicted bad side effects (more tickets in the hands of scalpers, people "hoarding" tickets, etc) and from what I understand of the JRS proposal I think the criticisms are correct. But rather than complaining before we fully understand the rules I thought I'd take a shot at prop...

Re: Preponderance of Darktards

Back in, I dunno 2003 or so, I made nightlights my mission. I brought 3000 glowsticks and turned a clay trap thrower (like this http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003C6M4TY/) into a glowstick cannon. It's a pretty easy mod - with a little added padding the glow bracelets hold tight until you fling! Standing ...

"Burn it down again" from art car during burn

Wondering whether anyone else heard this song I'm trying to ID... Location: The burn, @ 5 o'clockish. A large white mutant vehic platform with multiple S-shaped lights on its back: each light was small 1' S-shaped red+green+blue neon tubes.... or at least appeared that way to me at the time. It tran...

Re-entry is hard. Ten year vet here and this still happens... Not always, but it's strong this year. You're probably doing exactly what I did after my first year -- digging through eplaya looking to keep the experience alive. You might be worried that there's no way the "real world" can be that much...

Wed afternoon DJ at (4:30 & Catharsis)-ish

Hey all, I'm trying to track down a DJ who played for about 4 hours on Wed afternoon near our camp. I don't know exactly where it was coming from since I heard it from my tent as I caught some rest. I'm pretty sure it *wasn't* the sound system at 4:30 and Bipolar - they played later. It was a consta...
