Any NYC based camps this year

I'm a 2-time burner from Brooklyn, NY hoping to make this year burn #3. Are there any theme camps accepting members that are based in NYC? The only one I know of are kostume kult and I don't really fit in with their style. I'm looking to join a theme camp where I can help build what they make and he...

Re: Those beautiful laser cut city map necklaces

I know a friend who made pendants similar to what you were describing to handout in past years. I cant remember if he made them last year or not. http://i.imgur.com/8Sd81R3.jpg Wow! Those are the best city map ones I've seen yet. I've always been on a quest for pendants but I've never met anyone gi...

Bee swarm 2013?

I saw a youtube vid from last years burn where a bunch of burners dressed as bees and flashmob'd the man. Does anyone know who organizes that and if they'll be doing it again this year? I've seen the unicorns attack and the bunnies/carrots fight but the bees are new to me and that seems like the gro...

Re: How to spot undercover cops?

I remember in 2011 people spotted an van undercover cops were stationed in. It was a large white van with all the windows blacked out and they had a shade structure over it. Just covering the van. Who builds shade for the van they drove here in?

Anyway that's something to keep an eye out for.

Re: 2013 Theme - Cargo Cult - thoughts?

If we're talking about cult themed stuff at burning man: I've always wanted to see an HP Lovecraft theme camp. I'd love to see a bar that was dedicated to worshiping Cthulhu, with pictures of Shoggoths and the camp mates dressed as monsters. People chanting prayers that Cthulhu will come and bring a...

I don't understand???

I'm sorry but can someone explain this years theme to me?

I tried reading the summary twice and I still don't understand. What does the name cargo cult mean? What does it have to do with aliens? Or cults? How are people going to reflect whatever the theme is at the burn?

Re: the Don't Tell Me My Idea Is Crazy thread

I've just gotten into H.P. Lovecraft and I think it would be cool to have a theme camp that did something Lovecraft/Cthulu themed. It could be anything from a bar to an art piece of Cthulu to an art car. Part of what makes me think it fits is I had a convo last year about how being at burning man fe...

Thought I would start a thread for anyone on the east coast whose trip to the burn has been made harder by hurricane Irene. I was supposed to fly straight to Reno on Sunday but now I'm leaving saturday morning and have to stay a day in Chicago before getting a connection to Reno the next day. Bleh.

So I'm thinking of bringing a video camera with me this year. It's on older model panasonic mini dv camera. Can anyone with experience using video cameras on the playa tell me if it's worth it and what kind of care to take? Will mini dv cassettes withstand the heat? What should I be worried about?

Last year I remember some camp had a "pimp your bike" setup with all kinds of things you could decorate your bike with. I can't remember what it was called but does anyone know if there will be a camp like that this year? I didn't see anything looking at the theme camp list.

Re: Has anyone used these goggles before?

Maximum Eyewear makes really great goggles. THe one problem is I used the smoke tinted goggles last year and once it got dark I had a really hard time seeing, esp during the dust storms. Make sure if you only buy one pair that it isn't dark.

How are they going to visualize this?

OK so 2010 was my first burn, and I really enjoyed the metropolis theme (partly cause I'm from NYC). What I liked was that it had a unifying visual quality. People could make their own art but people did a lot with cities/buildings/etc that looked really cool. How are people going to symbolize/visua...
