Re: Playa Conditions 2014

The reality is, weather happens. The funny thing is the last three years, the weather has been pretty damn good. You tie that into some utube videos and everyone thinks it's a giant party. Is it? Yes, if you want it to be. Quiet and calm? Yes, if you want it to be. Weird, strange, wild and fun? Yes,...

Re: I hope Larry H. gets massively rich.

In this case, you're talking about the BM 1%. The funny thing is the 1% in this case has made the 99% extremely happy over the last 25+ years. I can't imagine going anywhere else in the world and meeting the people I have, experiencing the day and night art I've seen, theme camps I've visited, rando...

Re: So what are you doing for the Meet & Greet in 2012?

I'm working on my organic Raspberry/Blackberry Kettle One infused vodka. I'll bring it by the meet and greet and it may help you conquer the world. For that day, you can just conquer the vodka, the next day, the world ;)

Re: Ever lost someone on the Playa?

Yes, I did. This was my 3rd year at BM and my girlfriends first year. I remember being out on the playa and I told her and her girlfriend to wait where they were as my buddy was right behind us. I ran about 30 feet away, didn't see my buddy and ran back to the same spot. It was a clear night, very w...

Re: The best rumors you have heard about Burning Man this ye

Actually, due to the ongoing problems with the economy and the increasing cost of building materials, the man will actually be a hologram. The good news is they'll be able to increase the height of the man by 3 inches this year.

Funny thing but if it is the end of the world, it looks like the Black Rock Desert may soon be ocean front property. If that happens, make sure you have enough bacon. Bacon will be the new currency going forward. :mrgreen:

I'm still searching for a ticket but I like to think positive and know it will work out. I usually make an organic blackberry/raspberry infused vodka. I use organic berries and either Kettle One or Grey Goose vodka. I soak the berries in the vodka for two weeks, switch them out with new berries for ...

I can't wait to get back to the Playa. This has been a tough time since I made the decision to split with my girl. She would have been 31 on June 30th and I had planned to ask her to marry me.

Thanks for the kind words. It's going to be weird for sure but you're all right, new memories to be made. Dr. Pyro, we took a great picture at your camp last year with all the barbies, it's time to do a new one. I'll stop by and say hi. Love your camp.

Point taken and apology sent your way in regards to outfit and effort. I'm guessing that although you may not have been dressed up in some crazy outfit, you did have lights on. I did see quite a few people with both no costumes and no lights. I do appreciate all the efforts of those with theme camps...

To be fair, since the theme this year was Metropolis, maybe those gray drab burners were indeed dressed up according to the Metropolis theme. Hard to say and I stand corrected on that point. That said, a LOT of them didn't have any lights. No lights combined with the dark clothing made them nearly i...

Well said -- so true on all points. I've been out there 7 years and hungover only once -- ONCE was enough. Coconut water is a great for re-hydration and has electrolytes and does wonders for your hangover. The 100 degree heat definitely adds to an already bad feeling. You can get it at health food s...

I don't see it online at Costco.com but I just bought the Casio Exilm 6 camera for about $130 or so on sale in the store. I got one a few years back that worked great until I dropped it one too many times. It still works but it was time for a new one. Good deal for the money.
