we had that exact 18'er this year. it's very big for you to sleep in. we used it as a night time shelter for when it was cold & dusty & privacy is key. the floor will need to be attached very well but yea... it works good if you want to spend $2000 on something to sleep in. I bought one of these fro...

well it has been a good story that I will spread far and wide... humorous as well as educational... however the real "Truth" may remain elusive forever... everyone mark your gas caps right now!

ah ha!... NO... ART is the bullshit excuse we all use to get together. it's the music in the jukebox & the neon signs on the wall... or the pool tables & park benches... burning man is MUCH more than the aesthetics on the "surface".... of course it's an "ART" community. but everything we do is ART.....

Thanks Missy for the great post!


You seem to hint at one thing... as burning man gets bigger people are more afraid and apprehensive of meeting/trusting others.

It's getting harder every year to connect.

..Thanks for your post.

god damnit!


hence... the whole "end of the world" prophecy is really the end of burning man... the beginning of a new age of human consciousness...

I think this is why they chose 2012 as the last burn. I mean 2010 wouldn't be so "amazing". Fuck I hope it ends in 2012.

for 1 thing.. Stop forcing & begging your friends to go to burning man. There are already too many people there. ... if people want to come they will do it for themselves. Stop forcing your worldview on others! "i know you'll just love it". ...burning man is not a big party... it is very difficult &...

I couldn't agree more with the poster's comments generally...


I think burning man is now a big "scene" like a big rave and it's only going to get worse.... despite the great things about it.

2012: The Last Burn

I heard a very serious rumor this year that 2012 will be the last burn. Reasons: Too big, & it's deteriorating into something not what the founders wanted. Sadly given the way it's going....I hope it comes to an end. It's becoming a big "scene" rather than sincere. 2012 would be a poetic way to quit...
