Re: My Favorite DJ mix right now is...

This set has gotten me through the grey this winter. So warm, so bouncy, so techno. :D

Memory from an amazing day.

Re: Did you ever experience the nightly loneliness?

The presumption that not enjoying a party equates to mental illness troubles me. :? You are not obligated to have fun just because you are at a party. There is no requirement to enjoy yourself and trying to force pleasure where there is none to be found will only aggravate the discomfort. I’ve had s...

Re: Still haven't gotten your tickets?

Leaving for the playa in 17 days and still no word on my order.

Be a shame to have spent money on a ticket and vehicle pass to help a friend attend only to have them sitting in my mail box when I return from the event.

Re: Theme Camps that were NOT!

I've thought about setting up a camp called "Surveillance Camp" somewhere out in the sub-burbs. Fully functioning infrastructure (shade, tents, stage, art , lighting etc) with no-one actually camping there. Trick being the whole place would be under full audio/video Surveillance the whole time (with...

Solid list and advice so far. A couple of minor things that I would recomend... Tent Bring an extra sheet of large size to cover the entirety of your bed. I say this in case a brutal dust storm fills yer tent with dust. Think of it as a condom for your bed. This way you can gently roll the top sheet...

Re: The Pier

One of the top moments of my burn this year was Wednesday at sunset at The Pier. Boyfriend and I wandered out to roam the playa, and instead were stopped in our tracks in awe. The usually subdued pier had turned into a VORTEX. People were streaming up and down the pier like ants. Others were riding...

Re: Is sunday worth it?

For me the burning of the man is the end of one year.

The burning of the temple starts a new one.

The hours between the two are very important to me and watching the city fade away has become a favorite activity of mine.

How about a semi-giant cephalopod surfacing from the playa at the end of the pier? Tentacles and what not made out of wire and EL to provide a ground install to threaten those "swimming" by?
