Re: Boyfriend broke up with me for going to Burning Man

2008, my first year. My ex-wife should have gone. But she didn't want to. I am now happily married to the love of my life whom I met out there that year.

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. Super: I'll note to speak less until attending said event that allows me to speak here. What are you saying though? Nothi...

It was physically too large to take through the line, but yes it did have to get a DMV MV license.
Well this came from the Captain so I'm going to go with MV.

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.

Re: Biggest MOOP in the history of Burning Man

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 ...

Re: I want something different

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...

Like everything at Burning Man, it's satire, humor, tongue in cheek, and frivolity. The Orgy Dome is...

Re: Catching a Thief

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...

Luke, man, this is honest criticism based on what you posted. As a group, you're willing to throw a lot of money at camp facilities. That rubs many burners the wrong way. You say you'll pitch in, but you cannot arrive early nor stay late. The organizing is happening now, not on playa. You do not me...

Plug n play is what you're looking for. Pay up front, show up with the camp already set up, party and then get out before takedown. Sorry but that's really what you're wanting. And spare me the "handy" part. The camp will be in place with the folks who set it up knowing how to manage it, so your "pr...
