Bad Idea Theater

We're working on resurrecting Bad Idea Theater. Hoping to return to our old haunt in 3:00 Plaza.

Same old schtick; open bar, + crazy movies after dark.

Re: Appropriate fundraiser forum?

Oh, it's more than that. About the only stuff that escaped unburnt/undamaged was theme camp gear still in the back of his truck from our last decom event.

Re: Appropriate fundraiser forum?

Whoops! Glad I asked.

Thanks

PS: You might consider an FAQ entry for the fundraiser topic; that's where I went looking anyway.

Appropriate fundraiser forum?

We're going to be holding a fundraiser in OC for a burner couple (core Bad Idea Theater folks) who've lost nearly everything in a fire. Would like to promote the fundraiser and also invite contributions for raffle prizes. Recommendation for an appropriate e-playa forum? Or... is there one? Thanks! L...

Re: Ticket Panic Schadenfreude

I'm with you on some of your feelings about the ticket debacle, and it's always a warm fuzzy to get listed as someone's favorite camp (or even favorite no-show), but I'll open my yapper again to clarify that the ticket situation was not the major reason for Bad Idea Theater to give 2012 a miss. Yes,...

Re: NO BAD IDEA THEATER FOR 2012

Well it's nice to be missed! Or, that we will be missed. Just a word to clarify that while the ticket situation added a layer of complication, we were already about to give 2012 a miss due to other issues. We can't pin it all on the ticket thing, I suspect we could have overcome that. Hopefully we c...

Free filter boxes for video projectors - Orange CA

I'm giving away two each boxes that were built to house and provide filtered air to video projectors at Burning Man. I haven't used these boxes for several years, so they are free to a good home. Or a bad home; abuse them all you want. I stripped out some hardware and cables from these for my newer ...

Ok to give something away here?

I have a couple of DIY air filter boxes built to house video projectors, and I'd like to offer them free to whoever might want to pick them up locally. Is it ok to post this? Is so, which forum might be appropriate? (I'm thinking: ‹ Preparation ‹ Power & Illumination) Thanks, Larry [Saw a post refer...

Re: Bad Idea Theater

Look for the " Bad Idea Theater " in your 2008 theme camp guide. This is one of my favorites. They are typically located at 3 or 6:00 camp.... Aw, thanks! We've been at 3:00 in the past and we hope again for this year. We'll post on the web site when we get the dope on placement. I heard there are ...

Well, we have shown "Wizard People, Dear Reader" for many years at Bad Idea Theater, but we have not been on the esplanade and our outdoor projection is pretty small (basically it's incidental, rear projection for the purposes of viewing inside the canopy) . I'm thinking he was maybe looking at some...

EVIL VENDING MACHINE returns for '07

After taking a year off, the EVIL VENDING MACHINE will be back for '07. It will be sporadically vending, and complaining about it, on the playa in the general vicinity of Bad Idea Theater. I don't think I can do it justice by way of description so I won't try. A buncha folks were wondering what happ...
