Re: Fantastic Way to Seal Mesh Tent Screens

I cover my mesh with a very thin cloth (you can use old sheets or ripstop nylon). I set up my tent, pin the fabric over the mesh. I use an extra long upholstery needle (about 8") to lightly stitch the fabric to the edge of the mesh. I then trim off the extra fabric. The long upholstery needle makes ...

Re: Burning Man Influence in a Commercial?

Linda Perry stole Burning Man style before it existed. Proof that she's a time traveller.

Re: Is BRC really the land of freedom?

Savannah, my temple burn was great, but from what I saw of shushing and complaining at the temple and afterwords online, I'm guessing that many people felt their temple burn was ruined by others (which is it's own discussion), and I think many would like to see some customs (rules, laws?) followed f...

Re: Is BRC really the land of freedom?

And on a related note:
Is BRC society really embracing all 10 principles, or just the ones without words like "responsibility" and "effort?"

Re: Is BRC really the land of freedom?

So--ultimate freedom? Of course not. I would posit that true freedom, whatever it's worth, can only be found alone. In mixing with others, one sacrifices a little freedom for other things, which may or may not be worth it to the individual. Savannah, I wholeheartedly agree. It seems to me, however,...

Is BRC really the land of freedom?

So one thing I hear from many burners is how they love the freedom and lack of rules in BRC. Yet I keep seeing posts and comments about how real burners should act, what newbies do wrong, do lists, don't lists, complaints about music, complaints about behavior,etc. And the BMORG and community work v...

Re: Show Us Your Cults!

I'm confused. Explain to me again the difference between a cult and a theme camp?

Re: 2013 Theme - Cargo Cult - thoughts?

After reading about Cargo Cults, the first movie that popped into my mind was Life of Brian, not Gods Must Be Crazy. And As a New Yorker, I'm reminded of Central New York's Second and Third Great Awakening, the rise of chautauquas and traveling circuses, the Cardiff Giant, seances, and the rise of m...

Vinyl Banners on the Playa

I'm bringing out about 8 7ft X 4ft vinyl banners to the playa. I want to use the regular vinyl banners as opposed to the perforated banners, but I have some concerns about wind. Does anyone have experience displaying standard vinyl banners in BRC? Did they hold up? Thanks in advance for sharing any ...

Re: GLBT themed Camps

Definitely have all your friends create a profile on http://gayburners.com/. As Burning Man approaches the site will get much more active, and you'll get lots of info regarding camps that are out there and LGBT-friendly activities they are planning, including workshops, gatherings, parades, meat-n-g...

Upholstery tricks

Might I suggest a curved upholstery needle for easy sewing and strong upholstery thread to keep your little critters attached?
