TWO CAUTIONS - the WEATHER and the ROAD

Hey all you lovelies, Please be aware that the weather this year has a likelihood of being quite cold, at least at night. Bring layers and sleeping nummies. The other thing is for people driving from SF Bay area -- Interstate 80 is under construction. I drove it last week to Tahoe and back. At night...

Gnome camp?

I am looking for the gnome camp people, but it sure looks like they may be staying underground and off the playa this year. Anyone know? Also, I have a real miscreant of a gnome I am bringing back to the playa to find him a new home. He's very dangerous, his name is Finally, and he has a problem wit...

Bay area folks who want to help clean up this god-awful mess

Anyone with new info about groups forming to help clean this lovely, fragrant f***n tar off Bay Area Beaches And Birds (that's "babab" for those of us who have already been reduced to flipping the bottom lip in complete wacked-out despair), please post here. The various sites which are trying to poi...

the tree and its metaphors

I have a photo of the tree when they were trying to erect it. It's intriguing. As dustdevil explained, they were originally going to have a metal tree, at one point it was to be pulled up into place by burner power out there, would have been pretty spectacular. In this photo, the tree is at a 45 deg...

Yeah, what was he going to do, burn the curtains? Light the candles? Singe someone's robe? That's what makes it so obvious he's basically a sick little boy begging to be noticed.

begging for attention

How transparent does it get. He didn't have enough stuff on him to have much impact, the cops were tipped (by him, hello), and here we are doing just what he wants, paying attention. Sigh. Addis is pathetic. And I'm sure he needs help, which he won't get in jail. His actions are loud enough, who nee...

Hard to see this latest bit of acting out as anything but a ploy. He didn't have enough stuff on him to do real damage, the cops were "tipped," hellooo.

The rest of Crude Awakening's installation

Just a few folks were present for the brief time that the real culmination of this project was on the playa. A giant, live tree was being erected, which the figures were praying to in their transformed, post-oil-god state. It's unfortunate that factors and fates played into the removal of the tree b...

Just back from the playa two hours ago

And here's the story. Assuming it's okay with the powers and demigods if I describe BRC as it is today. We just returned from the playa a couple of hours ago. Was it worth losing pretty much a whole day of prep? YESSSSSSSS Wednesday, August 22, 2007. 11:30 a.m. We’ve crossed the Sierras and what c...

Writer's corner invitation

Likely activities include sharing snacks, talking about the previous night's skyshow, and eventually getting around to our preoccupation with putting words in print. Or, we may just sit drinking frozen margaritas into the evening and nodding...

IT's THE PERIOD AT THE END APPARENTLY

If you get the "page not available" screen, go up to your URL bar and backspace out the end period. The period after "com" kills the link.

Or so it would seem.

The page is up and available online, but for some reason it does not work to click on it within these messages. Cut and paste or type it in your URL bar, and it will show up.

In case you haven't heard, small art is where it's at. And we need images. This is a funded project, a three-walled room in the maze under the man.
