Re: Vandals Strike 2016 Sound Camp Infrastructure

By the time I made it to my first burn in 2001 there was already a generational shift. The original cacophony and Zone Trip elements were largely gone or diminished. I think the rise of social media began the demise. Once that BM video went viral on Gawker etc etc, thousand of people sat up and sai...

Re: What turns you off/on about DJs at Burning Man?

I loved burning man this year, but my main issue was the lack of variety in music. It seemed like every night the music was very hard and aggressive dubstep, hip-hop, pop, or very hard techno. There was very little good house music or trance for those of us dancers who prefer music on the softer si...

Re: To whoever is operating the UStream Playa Cam

There is other more suitable music than the droning tripe that was playing. Playa audio would have been great. Beautiful burn though.

I'm stuck in the UK watching the live feed - it's night on the Playa at the minute and I wish I was there.

Please PLEASE stop zooming in and out and around too FAST, I'm getting seasick! It's bad enough missing the Burn this year but trying to watch it on UStream is a nightmare.

Re: What turns you off/on about DJs at Burning Man?

My gripe is that there is too much "industrial" techno-type stuff that is just tuneless repetitive noise. In 2010 I could find nowhere playing trance or vocal trance, with some actual melody. I went to all the big open air clubs on the Playa and there was no buzz at all for me due to each one playin...

Handy hint if you lose your camera

I couldn't believe how many people posted up about lost cameras last year. So here's what you do. Type or write clearly your name and email on a piece of paper, then take a photo of it - then if you lose your camera, hopefully the person who finds it will look thru the pics and hey presto - there's ...
