Oh, dear old trolls, I haven't read since my last post. Your pitchforks have dull or broken teeth, and your torches are burning out. Trolling is much more epic in my circles, but I imagine we probably owe much inspiration to your work in the 90's. So, out of respect for you, I will pretend to be cha...

I had no prior expectation of such, but for me the tone was definitely set when the greeters told me that yet another additional law enforcement agency was patrolling the even this year, with their own art cars. And I saw it everywhere and it really made an impression on me. Mmm bacon. My favorite r...

Burning Man 2010 Theme. Larry got it wrong.

2010 Burning Man theme should be: COPS. Fucking cops everywhere. Cops strolling the streets en masse after sunrise, looking for paraphernalia left in conspicuous locations by careless partiers. So many cops at night along the esplanade, a different set from a different agency was huddled every few p...

I would respectfully disagree swampdog. They hate attention. They thrive on operating under the guise of an obscure religion that most people don't know much about. The Volunteer Ministries passes itself off as a disaster relief organization. They offer zero first aid or supplies. The entire goal is...

How to stand out in a huge village

I'm at Entheon Village this year, which has some 200-250 people camping there. I want to do something so my friends can find me in that huge camp. I'm in a friend's RV this year. So far I haven't come up with anything. I keep thinking some kind of tower would be great but I dunno. I probably can't b...

RV Insurance

This year I'm trying things a little differently and joining some friends in their rented RV. I thought getting insurance would be a snap, but not so. I have a spotless record but I don't own a car and therefore don't have any auto insurance. I can't find any place that will cover me for the duratio...

Two things, forgive me if they've been said (tl;dr) 1. I have a friend who feels a bike detracts from the experience. He takes great pleasure from walking everywhere, and the reason is obvious to all who have been. Every block has a bar waiting for you to slide up to and have water or an adult bever...

Okay, I'm very new to Burning Man which partly makes me feel like I'm not qualified to have an opinion on this, but after reading that the Discovery Channel is being allowed to film their latest cheezy gimmick "The Tattoo Hunter" at the event, I'm signed on to the protest.

That is a good point. Is that the sole reason? Those cells are helping to power the event. Is that different from an artist getting a grant, and writing off expenses?

Seeking a home for virgin burner bear

My friend Jim is going to Burning Man this year. He's a loving, charming, fun, hard-working bear of a gay man in San Francisco. I'm trying to help him hook up with a gay camp or group for this year. You don't know me but I and many, many others can attest that any group would benefit from having Jim...
