Trump cancels Burning Man 2017

Heard this rumor last week and in retrospect I'm surprised it took as long as it did. Of course we thought that the next logical step, should this happen, would be to have Burning Man on the National Mall this year. Being the first burn without a lottery for about ten years, I figure attendance shou...

Re: Law Enforcement in 2105

'had a random, charming guy converse with me one night for some twenty minutes, as happens, and I was enjoying the company until he abruptly asked me where he could "buy some molly." I made some sort of joke and he redirected his question until I let him know it was time for him to move on. He could...

Re: Lack of Art this Year

As they say...there was more art next year. I was a little snappy, probably because I worked over several months on a piece that never physically made it out there. This is, I believe, the first year that the Burning Man population didn't get bigger and maybe we are used to seeing More every year, t...

Re: Temple Burn -- one hour of silence and reverence possibl

Personally I'm so exhausted by Sunday night I am both very quiet and too tired to care what anyone else does... Part of the unique experience of Burning Man is the fact that the temple has been gifted to the playa and belongs to everybody. We are so cultured into a system of following rules it is re...
