Re: CALLING ALL SAN ANTONIO AREA BURNERS!!!

Burning Otherside? Is it as exclusive as Flipside? Otherside is the opposite of exclusive, it's formed for the burners who weren't able to get Flipside tix. If you can't make it to Apache Pastures, head to Recreation Plantation. http://www.burningotherside.com/ I'll be at the Flipside PETs tent thi...

Re: Burning Man Personals?

Ok Cupid is pretty user friendly though (and free), and you can do keyword searches for people's interests. People tend to put a lot of effort into their profiles on there. Seconded! I met my ex through okc, and he introduced me to my current beau. And my sister met her boyfriend through it too. Yo...

Re: Top Asshats of 2011 Burning Man

I just wish we could keep the asshats from winning tickets in the lottery. Steal a bike, banned for life, I say. I think that's actually a fennec fox, native to north Africa. I thought so too, but the tail doesn't look quite right for a fennec.. Lot of mammals lose hair due to stress. A giant week-l...

Re: Comparison to another first case of lottery.

I think non-transferable non-returnable non-refundable tickets would be cool. You sign up for a ticket under your name and if you can't go that's a $300 donation you just made to the event. That way people would have to be damn sure of their plans and tickets would sell at a much slower rate. If you...

Re: Senseless roping off of unused acres of prime camp spots

Ironically, the highly trafficked spaces are always filled with antisocial dickwads. They like to surround themselves with other people so that they don't have to confront the fact that they're not fit to be around people. It's like when you go see a band you love, arrive early to get up near the s...

Beautiful post, very interesting history to be educated about, thank you!

But yeah, dub step is the only dance music I've actually enjoyed for a while, much better than typical oontz oontz. Dub step DJs actually do something interesting with their oontzes. Very danceable.
