Re: Want to Volunteer on a Camp!

This is the usual plea of someone who wants everyone ELSE to work around their particular issues or schedule. I just read this and it annoys me. They just want to pay and play. Oh I know they will help and all that. But they can't come early to help set up because it didn't fit your travel plan. May...

Re: Google East and Selling Out

Isn't there something in the current artist contract that gives the BORG a cut of future sales? Inquiring minds would like to know what is in that contract! On honorarium projects it's 10% of the sale price. Which isn't bad considering they give you the money to build it and the largest gallery in ...

Re: Accept me for who I am

When I first said I was going to Burning Man in 2008, I asked my wife if she wanted to go. She said no. I went. Met a woman on the playa and fell in love with her. We are now married and the one who said no way is my ex. Never been happier. And WE go every year. That's all I got.

If you can, I'd suggest remaining in Santa Rosa. Space in the East bay is very scarce and rents are zooming. Traditional places (American Steel) are feeling the heat as well.

It it's me, I'd start with fleshing out your concept. One main questions here; Big or little? Sounds like it's fairly big (Car or truck frame) if you have others involved. Go wild on design first. Remember it has to get through DMV review to be allowed on playa. But once you get your design up, the ...

One question. How many of the leftover bikes actually still worked? Could it be that a lot of the dumping is people who's bikes fall apart (Cheap or not well cared for) just say "fuck it" and leave them where they finally broke down?

I'd say your best bet is to get them to a golf cart repair shop. They might at least get them running again. The audio is tougher so no advice there. Good lu...

Re: Disabled vehicle permit vs Art car

I guess I would ask; has something changed? You make it sound like you could go either way. If it is truly a disabled person vehicle then you would go through that process. MV? the other. You really need to decide what your car is first. The rest will follow.
