American Dream = Biggerer!? Just like the Onecler from the book, The Lorax, put it... "Biggering, biggering, biggering... " I guess I got over seeing everything years ago. Though visiting friends on the other side of the city was more challenging, I liked the spaciousness and I've focused more on m...

Got'cha

Burning man is a Mecca, a pilgrimage of thousands of seekers — the embers and sparks generated by the conflagration of burning spirits of this massive dreamtime vortex engine recreates the universe with every blinking moment. It's really not about "getting it" — it's a matter of opening up and Being...

Re: OMG

Well, I had a gut-busting laugh over all the shit we were gonna make up about this bondage soap opera... So this thread has drifted from true (on good faith) 'Youthful Indescretions' to creative writing / fiction? I've really enjoyed this thread, though I haven't any stories to add that would be al...

Re: a BM story

Or how I met my wife... Once upon a time, back when BM'ers were allowed to leave, a bunch of BM'ers went over to Fly Geyser, which is this really cool hot lake fed by a triple geyser rising out of a travertine terrace. Crystal clear water, reeds, giant frogs.. pretty nice place, I wrote about it in...

Re: the Frase Jenerator

digging into my archives, ive unearthed Black Rock Gazette volume 8, sunday sept 5, 1999 and while Piss Clear has by far been my favorite read on the playa over the years, an anonymous chap developed a "phrase generator" for this BRG issue which gives you a swell ole time making up descriptions for...

HuH look at the pictures dude Already did. why would'nt I have. You posted them. I dont get it. what's up? If someone else gets what's going on here please enlighten me. I think what’s lost in the translation is Rics exalted affinity with the greater Black Rock region is, ironically, similar to bur...

Re: This will likely annoy someone

I wrote this the 15 years or so ago, when the BM first moved to the Black Rock... Not annoyed, but I feel similarly, except from an inside burning man perspective (and without the contempt)… The first year burning man happened on the Black Rock Desert was 1990. There were roughly 100 people. I was ...

I think its great that you locked the WSPR threads, but the way that it has been done is unfair and still hurtful to the e-playa community. All the responses were deleted leaving the slanderous bile uncontested and uncontestable and at the top of the list – yuck! This is a very unsatisfying and uns...

Good question, Badger. I wanted to leave them as examples of what not to do, and of what will happen when folks cross those lines. I think that a lot of people were bothered that no action was taken last time around, and I wanted them to know that now that our rules are in effect, we will enforce t...

Re: But Gen...

The contradiction in your statement comes from the number of people involved. Assembling such a large group in such a small area is sheepish. I drove the perimenter this year, seven miles around.. so a bit less than two miles on a side, 4 sections, roughly 2400 acres,, with 30,000 people.. The perm...

Interesting proposition. Treasure Island was created (by landfill - http://www.sfmuseum.net/hist5/treasis.html) for the 1939 Worlds Fair. I guess it since became a military base. It sure seems it would be a great place for a really serious wek-long burning man decompression-type event. There was a b...

The 'stick' man (wooden sculpture) is a symbol (no label attached) that has a cycle akin to the Phoenix (burning/returning bird myth), which also has a singular namesake. If there was a festival to accompany it, you wouldn't say, "I've attended 4 Phoenix's", but "I've attended 4 Phoenix burns" or "I...

Re: what would be the proper plural of "Burning Man&quo

Referring to the annual event, not the burned-on-Saturday icon itself: "I've attended four Burning Mans." "I've attended four Burning Men." Both sound awkward. It’s a singular semantic thing — how many you’s or me’s are there? The burning man is like an individual, and the annual event is a birthda...
