We had a tiny tiny theme camp this year. Three people until Tuesday, and then three more joined us for a whopping total of six. We were supposed to have more members, so we had a hard time keeping it properly open and interactive as much as we wanted to, but we tried to make up for it by bringing al...

I assumed that was a intentional prank, and I thought it was hilarious! I've seen Daft Punk live twice, and I've seen Verboten play Daft Punk CDs. If I closed my eyes I would have a hard time telling the difference. We always tell everyone we see that Paul Oakenfold is playing a super secret show wi...

Thanks to the Hotel Bar (the name started with an A, sounded Indian, can't remember it) on 7:30 and B. The amount of organization that went into putting that together boggles the mind. We had a great time. Thanks to the sluts at Slutgarden for the awesome new threads, the kickin' parties, and the gi...

My only trip to the med tent this year was when myself and a campmate carried a very dehydrated first timer there to get hooked up to an I.V. While we were waiting we saw several people come in, all with nasty slide burns. Kinda ruined my enthusiasm for going down the slide later that day... I'm sti...

Do you have your placement yet? I know it puts me in the minority at Burning Man, but techno makes me wanna punch babies. There seem to be less and less places to escape it each year.

None of the really cool burners actually watch the man burn. That's newbie stuff. The real party is out about a mile past the trash fence where Paul Oakenfold, DJ Dan, Daft Punk, and every other awesome techno DJ ever play a ten hour set starting at 11:30pm on Friday. They give out free glowsticks a...

We wound up vacuu-sealing portions of all the meals and just throwing them in a pot of boiling water when we were ready to eat. Worked brilliantly, and we will definitely be doing it again this year. I highly recommend it, because you can eat your food straight out of the bag, which means the only d...

Because I just got all my rage for the day out on some idiot hippie in a separate thread I will give you the totally serious answer you seek: Burning Man is always a week long, and it always ends on Labor Day. So, figure out when labor day is in 2009, and BM will start a week before that. We now ret...

You can also just make up a camp name before you leave, make sure everyone knows it, and put your location in Playa Info under that name. All the years I went out without a theme camp the early arrivals would give everyone a general idea of the area they were shooting for (i.e. as close to 3:30 and ...

Usually it's closer to the 9:00 side of the plaza. I assume since Stiffy Lube and Porn and Eggs are around 9:00 then that's most likely gonna be considered the Red Light District.

Yeah, what he said. Either buy good vodka, or grimace and drink cheap vodka. Call me lame and girly but I think most vodka tastes like rubbing alcohol anyway. I stay away from the gut-rot shit in plastic jugs, but I'm fine with all the mid-level semi-respectible booze.

Hey, the tobacco companies are evil bastards too. I agree completely. That's precisely why it seems so stupid when anti-smoking groups feel like they need to lie to get their point across. Just report the truth. It's fairly compelling stuff.

Carbohydrates and sugars are also really good, if you can remember to consume them before bed. The best hangover-prevention bedtime snack is milk and cookies. No joke. Plenty of water of course too.

If you were a smoker you would fully understand the risk/reward ratio. I just think it's a little ridiculous how much smoking has been demonized in this country over the past decade or so. I'm not arguing that it's not bad for you or anything, but if people are that concerned over heart health they ...
