Re: Controlling RGB Leds

Supposedly the .led files that those controllers use are encrypted and only generated by that LEDEdit software, which is apparently not very good. I do full custom software with my own lights because I want complete control and those other programs feel too limited. Maybe you can use something like...

Re: Donald Trump is my hero

nope are you saying Obama deserved a peace prize? I worked to get Obama elected by going door to door in Reno in 2008. I voted for him again in 2012. I would've voted for him a third time if it'd been possible in 2016. He didn't deserve the Nobel Peace Prize. While his policies were different from ...

One more, 2007 or 2008 I think, I guess this counts as an "art car" but it had no motor. It was a three story tall wooden structure, where on the second floor was basically a really decked out Middle Eastern themed lounge area.

Re: Best thing you ever saw

I've got to agree that Uchronia was really spectacular. It really was. I remember the first night at the burn that year, I saw Uchronia out on the horizon, flashing from the lighting. I thought it was a cloud off over Winnemucca with lightning. 2004's Alien Semaphore was one of my favourites. It wa...

So, many of us here have been to lots of burns. I've been to 12. I've seen a lot of great art.

So, in all those years you've gone. What's been your favourite thing (or event) out there?

2009 Though not particularly lethal, it was a theme park of danger, pain, injuries and goddamn quality family fun! Lots of road rash that year.

Was probably the nicest playa to ride on since 2010, and maybe even better than that. It was effortless to pedal virtually anywhere and I didn't encounter a single dune. That is, unless you rode around on the 9:00 side, which had foot-deep blast craters in the roads that ruined many a bifkin. It wa...

It was hot as hell during the day. Like, can't move from your chair, risk heat exhaustion/stroke by moving about hot.

Other than the first burn/zone trip in 1990 with 80 people present, every burn has had a dance component -- the grumbling between the Artists and the Dancers has been eternal.
