Re: Lumber Deliveries

A little clarification (and maybe a bump back into Art & Performance): When I did the same for another art project two years ago, it took finding the right person at the right pro desk, which is what I'm hoping to get. Home Depot was making pre-event deliveries every 2-3 days, with multiple orders c...

Lumber Deliveries

Are there any building supply stores that still deliver lumber to the playa? I've had this done several times in the past, but am not having any luck this year. They've all said that the entry/exit/ticketing process made the deliveries too complex.

Thanks in advance for any leads!

Re: Building & Bringing Art - Could the lottery encourage th

The *worst* part of this lottery thing has been the emergence of the "holy" (burnier than thou) crowd who believes that *they* should be exempt from it. C'mon, guys. You're not special, and neither am I. I think we all deserve a fair shot at going. I *am* of the opinion that someone who works hard,...

Re: Building & Bringing Art - Could the lottery encourage th

To answer the question posed in your subject line - the details of the program aren't known, it's far too early to tell. Yup, I'm very curious to see what happens. I'm posting my $0.02 here since I assume there's still a lot of healthy debate going on about how to structure the lottery. the ratio o...

Building & Bringing Art - Could the lottery encourage this?

Contributing art (and theme camps, art cars etc) to everyone's experience is a core part of BM's philosophy, as well as my own. As attendance event has exploded, the ratio of bringers to non-bringers has been dropping, particularly on burn weekend. The lottery has some intriguing implications for ho...

Seeking a Golden Pony

I'm seeking Golden Pony as a reward for one of my crew members on The Watch. It's a huge art installation, and she's been holding things together and doing amazing work for three months straight. (see http://thewatch.devildream.com for more info) What the hell is a Golden Pony? Well, I'm flexible, b...

It would be nice if someone set up a page where we could change and add things as we all saw fit. :wink: That's every page!!! Just click the 'edit' tab at the top of the page - no login required! (Well, almost every page has an edit tab - the homepage is a notable exception.) If you want to create ...

Wiki Brain Dump

I've been working on building a Burning Man brain dump (aka wiki). From talking to a few folks, there have been past efforts that never really took off. So far this is turning out a little differently - it already has well over 100 entries on things from acclimating and aluminet to water and waxing ...
