Re: I'd like to put a team together for a project...

I’m just gonna drop it straight, this comes across like a zillion others before: “I’ve got this super awesome idea that I’m not telling anything about, that I want other people to build and pay for”. The cool shit gets built by people who can do. Exactly. Idea people always seem to think "I have th...

Re: Biggest MOOP in the history of Burning Man

Interesting to read that article, even if the author gets some minor things wrong and sounds like propaganda too often. I sure wouldn't want to have to solve those problems, and under such a time limit. If it can manage to stay safe (hope that net is real - not photoshop - and helps make it more lo...

Re: Biggest MOOP in the history of Burning Man

I doubt seriously if there would have been near the discussion this generated if it hadn't been for the issues regarding it leaving the playa. Minor grumbling sure, but the whole thing exploded once the difficulties in getting it gone surfaced. That's how this thread started before it blew up into w...

Re: Playa-dippity

2008, my first burn. After 3 days of late nights I was out on the Esplanade alone, having lost my friends as so often happens. I decided to call it an early night and was walking back to camp when I heard "I love Rock and Roll" by Joan Jett playing from a club. One of my favorites so I decided to ru...

Re: After action report from One Wheelers on the Playa?

How do folks feel about keeping to the BRC speed limit of 5 mph? Or are motorized personal conveyances exempt from this? It's a good question. I typically operate my bicycle between 10 and 20 mph when I actually get on the damn thing. Is that also bad? We "raced" a BLM ranger in a golf cart on our ...

Re: Biggest MOOP in the history of Burning Man

GroundStart you do a lot of speaking for an event you’ve never even attended. Almost every MV is “unoriginal” in concept. You name it, some version of it has probably been done.

Yes, Dr., but no one is going to want a gutted, bullethole-ridden 747 plane carcass in their town square as 'art'.
I understand. I was only referencing art. I believe the 747 was classified as an MV.

This is why there is a long standing tradition of building real big stuff out of wood. You know, immediacy, temporary and all that blather. Much has been lost from the Temporary Autonomous Zone concept. If you are referencing art, one of the reasons is that playa art has become a commodity in the d...

Re: Biggest MOOP in the history of Burning Man

No one seems to have a problem with boats or couches or carpets being MVs, why not planes? What is the interest in that thing besides it being big? It's a boring, resource taxing, destructive burden. Boats and couches don't cruise deserts in default world. Big planes get pulled around the ground al...

Re: "Burning Man" is; giving people permission to dream the impossible is possible

Actually, there is some basis for saying that they do give people permission to dream and even more so, create. I met my true love there and we've just celebrated our 11th burn together. And when we saw the great art and MV's that people had made we actually said, "why don't we try to make some art ...

I'm not sure you realize that domesticated farm animals (or any animal) is not allowed on the playa during Burning Man. A good thought might be to start your own little Kink Kamp. (feel free to use the name, but give me credit) I must have missed the part about farm animals. But hey, whatever prime...

I believe most of the leftover bikes are left by people who got them on the way there to use for the week and had no way or intention of bringing them back. No doubt. And the overall condition is usually trashed. Many are non operable. It's funny, because with so many bike repair camps out there yo...

Re: Catching a Thief

I think all you're really trying to do out there is make it harder to take it. I would bet the majority of bikes taken aren't locked. And most just taken out of opportunity. Shit, you want a bike? There were what, 5,000 of them left after last year? Something like that. So bike theft is shitty but s...
