Re: "Burning Man's Culture is in Danger"

Communists - Around for hundreds of years, still out marching to this day, killed over 100 million people, destroyed entire nations, have been behind almost every war in the last century and they openly fly their flags in cities around the U.S daily. Furthermore, they have the support of not just w...

Re: Make Us Jealous

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...

Re: Make Us Jealous

It was hot as hell during the day. Like, can't move from your chair, risk heat exhaustion/stroke by moving about hot. Most of our camp sat in the shade with misting bottles waiting for the sun to go down all day. Don't ever remember a burn so hot and this was my 12th. First time I ever left early t...

Wildfire NV-447 road closure between Nixon & Empire.

Shits bad. Closure is indefinite. (Click that link to get updates, since I think eplaya cuts off updates after 30 minutes on posts.)

Re: "Burning Man's Culture is in Danger"

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.

Re: "Burning Man's Culture is in Danger"

If the Burning Man org really wanted to change things, they'd put a blanket ban on media at the event. Every gee-wiz article, or commercial magazine/website pictorial essay, every interview by the members of the BORG brings hundreds more people to the event. Don't we already have enough?

I wonder if you could use eplaya posting metrics to predict the population of the current year. Is there a correlation? Is there a certain month that correlates better than others?
