Re: Virgin burner in SoCal

There is a great burner community here in LA (if that is near you). Get yourself on the mailing list to if you want to hear about local meet-ups, noobie orientations, etc. My fire conclave formed through the LA burners email years ago and now we are a great group of friends. The link to subscribe is...

Re: Tickets are out!

UPS might be right, give it a few more days. I had a package recently that showed as delivered and it didn't show up for another 3 days. Apparently this is common. Especially as it seems no one has actually received their tickets yet.

Re: DJ Art Cars And Their Effect On Art

Just wanted to revisit this thread to thank the Mutant Vehicles on the 6:00 side of the man burn this year. They turned their music down during the fire conclave and we had one of our best performance experiences in years.

Thanks.

Re: Will Call sucked real bad

Personally, I never understood why someone would do will call unless they absolutely had to. Having a hard ticket in your hand seems to make so much more sense to me. I have a file folder with all my BM info for the year, and the ticket and vehicle pass goes in a brightly colored envelope. I can th...

Re: DJ Art Cars And Their Effect On Art

Unfortunately Radrangerreb those of us in Conclave did not have the option of moving somewhere else. Every group is given an assigned spot and that is where you perform. Also, the rules of conclave do not allow us to use amplified music so are are dependent on our drummers to provide a beat for us. ...

Re: DJ Art Cars And Their Effect On Art

Our fire conclave was located practically in front of the Dancetronauts. Our carefully choreographed drumming and dancing that we have spent months practicing was nearly drowned out by their incessant noise and self promotion. I encourage everyone to write complaints to the DMV. I do not want to see...

Re: ROOT SOCIETY 2012

From the pics it looks like RS left firewood behind, which isn't good obviously. But it doesn't seem as egregious as leaving a car, trailer, couch, bbq, jars of piss, etc. I have never been a fan of the sound camps, but I always figured let people burn how they want. Camping on 2:30 this year I saw ...
