Apparently there is some stuff going on in the world that I am just not a part of - or at least perhaps I wasn't paying attention that closely to when I read the Kama Sutra (of course my version was illustrated with stick figures - perhaps that was the problem.) As I mentioned in a previous posting ...

It's funny and it's cool. I have a hit counter on the blog site that allows me to see how many people have visited but also where they've linked from and roughly where they are. (roughly as in "California" or "New Zealand.") BUT what I find is funny is that every now and again I'll get a link from g...

I bring these two up because it's not just a "Republican" or "Right Wing" issue, per se. You're right about that Chai. In fact the traditional notions of the nanny state and thought crime come from the left (the novel 1984 was about a left wing government.) The right - or Republicans - "traditional...

The government is to me the provider of last resort when family and community have failed you. Unfortunately, many these days seem to look to government as the first line provider and they end up frustrated and disappointed. It is my opinion that more often than not, involving the government in you...

"This is Burning Man" is a great book. I really enjoyed it and going to BRC after I read it was a different thing.

Not necessarily. And they didn't take that picture.

Also, the image gallery is just that, an image gallery. BMorg doesn't check out all the people in the photograph. And if they did APPROVE their use of the images for a porn site, then forget Malcom, we're in a whole other world.

You didn't see anything? The top two pictures, under the banner, are on the playa. and if you search the page the words Burning Man appear at least 5 times, with several other pictures. There's also a reference to video - which appears to be a pay thing. Hmm. Is anyone upstairs paying attention to t...

I'd love to get a copy of it somewhere. I wrote a novella a few years ago that I gave out on the playa, though I couldn't afford to print many copies. I've posted about it before, but it's available, in blog form, here: http://burningnovel.blogspot.com/ if anyone is interested.

The Novella I wrote

Before the '03 Burn I wrote and gifted a novella set at Burning Man, during a fictional year. I've posted it to a Blogger site and it can be read there, or printed, loved or hated. A word of warning: it contains references to illegal drug use and public sex so it's not suitable for BM LLC's own Tale...

Ubu, I totally agree with everything you said. I've actually come to embrace most of the changes - especially since a lot of the changes have allowed the continuation of Burning Man itself - and have enjoyed every year on it's own terms. And it's true, the burn itself has come to mean less. What has...

You guys aren't getting it at all. I'm talking about the symbolism of what burning the man stands for - or at least what it's supposed to stand for. AND what it is evolving into. A gallery may be nice, but there are gallerys everywhere. Maybe I'm one of those burners who remember the hay bales too f...

I had quite a few virgins believing there was going to be a vote on Thursday afternoon, at First Camp for next year's theme. I don't know if anyone showed up, but you know, when the Rangers tell you to pass along some information, you just have to do it.

Yeah

I know they close it off and stuff it with pyro (and extra wood last year) but I always assumed what was built with the man burned with the man. (including the smoke detector (according to the book "This is Burning Man.")) I mean, isn't that the point of the whole thing? What surprised me was that t...

They took away a lot of the Man

Late Friday night a campmate and I went for a walk out to the man. She hadn't been in the maze yet and wanted to see it before it got shut down for the pyro stuff. But when we got there it was already shut down and there were people hauling stuff out of the maze and loading trucks. I asked a Ranger ...

Day time experience

The layout of the camps made the event more of a day time experience for me. It was a lot nicer cruising around the city during the day this year. I met a TON of people doing that.
