I love this idea.

I love this idea.
The best installations on the playa are the interactive ones that require us to participate.

I imagine you will have as much fun scaring people as they will have being scared.

re: In my mind, 7 days is too short to see everything.
But what do you think about it?

In my mind,
LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO SEE EVERYTHING.
LIFE IS TEMPORARY.

If our life went on forever, we would not appreciate it.
And so it is on the playa.

Building Black Rock City

Hey Pink Daddy.

John Curley says:

You should start hearing from me when they start pounding the stakes in the ground for the fence, a week from Monday.

I look forward to his account of the beginnings of our city, too.
You will find his blog in the BUILDING BLACK ROCK CITY section.

release form

I'm no lawyer, but the back of the ticket states:

The ticket purchaser or holder (you) voluntarily assumes all risk of property loss or damage, personal or bodily injury, serious injury or death, which may occur by attending Burning man 2010.

That pretty much covers it, no?

YES

I've admired that sculpture when it was part of Crude Awakening.

The first time I saw her on the playa this year, the full moon was behind her and it appeared as if her whole body was being pulled toward it.
It was absoutely magical.

It's not about fear, it's about community.
Do you think that the people who camp in KIDSVILLE do so because of their fear and discomfort with childless people?
