Microwaves and Honda eu2000?

Was grabbing a couple things at a local big box and saw a 700 watt microwave on sale for $35. Kinda struck me as an easy way to simplify my playa kitchen. Am I overlooking something here? I can live on shelf stable food for a week- seems like way less of an pain than dealing with dry ice on a cross ...

Re: Did you hear the Dancetronauts promoting themselves

It's a tough question, but the solution definitely isn't to complain to the org. They're busy keeping relationships open with governments and neighbors. They're busy with the shitters and what to do if mother nature decides to get interesting. It's a big machine, it can juggle all sorts of balls. Y...

the souk was cool, but the inner playa did seem a bit empty after getting used to seeing a couple dozen large scale art pieces around the man. not a complaint! and i like change. But I did miss CORE. Not just because of the art, but because it kinda helped facilitate a couple types of interactions. ...

My one regret this year was not really connecting with anyone new out there.

Re: to rule, or not to rule

I feel a little of this happens with the regional burns. Each have their little bit of lawlessness that doesn't fully stack up to the lumbering beast the big burn has become. I wouldnt say "lawlessness" as much as "police less". that's one of the most awesome things about a 1700 person burn. No fuc...

But I don't think I will use solid tarps anymore. we use three 10x20s to cover our 20x30 1" conduit-based shade. the strips of sun are a bit annoying sometimes, but it's better than the alternative.

Slept till 3:30 yesterday. Roomy, dust was no big deal, warm at night and easy to cool during the day. Couldn't imagine doing it any other way now. Love it. Thank you Julie danger, and all the other nerds that figured out the tricky bits.
