Re: Worst part of 2013?

6th year and I felt United cut corners this year, at least at my local portos at 4:30 and C. I think about half of them had bad locks or incorrect indicators. There was almost never any hand sanitizer and it just felt like they serviced them once less per day than previous years. This was on United....

Re: post what you didn't like about 2011 here

I discovered that I am not a fan of Infected Mushroom's new material. It is so different from their other stuff that it seems like they should have released it under another name. That's the artist's prerogative though..

Toughen up if you want you coffee. While my few cafe experiences over the years have been good I do feel I should ask, if the cafe really necessary? Yes, people go there.

Can you help me identify the western wagon?

I discovered this on the playa just past Rites of Zion at 10 o'clock. It was a 19th century with portraits of western characters on it. It made me laugh harder than almost anything I've experienced in my 32 years. If there is a website or artist contact available for this I would appreciate someone ...

I'm a big fan of Splatinum if you like glitchy/whompy stuff. Their 6am sunrise set at Temple of Boom on Thursday morning (Wednesday night) should be cool. It is also supposed to start 15 minutes after Infected Mushroom ends next door.

Usually my lower back starts to bother me on the Playa. If this were to happen at home I would get in my inversion bed/table and would be able to adjust myself in about 10 seconds. Since I fly to Reno I'm not able to take mine. Usually on the Playa my back goes untreated and the problems compound. I...

The logistics of big name DJs

I've always wondered about this. When big name acts play some of the larger soundcamps, how do the logistics work? Do they do it like the rest of us? (pay for their own ticket, arrange their own transportation) Or does the soundcamp get their ticket for them and fly them to BRC or have a runner that...

Just go low-rent. Know that every year you go you will be better prepared with more comfort. The first time you suck it up. Also, the real Playa is more friendly than ePlaya so don't let that discourage you. The first time I attended I decided to go on a Thursday night (I was living on the East coas...

Liquor is cheaper in Nevada than in California, isn't it? Do they sell it in WalMarts and Costcos or does one need to go to the more conventional liquor store?
