Thanks for making this happen!

It's great that you're making available interviews with some of the key personalities behind Burning Man. If you're accepting input on who to interview next, I'd like to hear more from Michael Michael on the future of Burning Man.

FOUND! My Wedding Ring!

As reported last week in the JRS Vol 10, Issue 6, my wedding ring was miraculously discovered by DPW member Red Michelle on the Esplanade during cleanup. It was returned to me and is now firmly back on my finger! I now consider myself married to the Black Rock Desert and will forever cherish the ret...

LOST: Man's Gold Wedding Ring

Help! I've worn this ring every day for 20+ years, but on Sunday afternoon I took it off and stuck it in my pocket so that I could play drums without getting a blister. When I reached into the pocket to put it back on, it was GONE! It's a man's gold wedding band, a simple, traditional domed design. ...

You may be thinking of the Pillow Fight Club. It was a big, elevated trampoline surrounded by a mesh enclosure and filled with dozens of white pillows. The fights were extremely vigorous, leaving the combatants exhausted and exhilarated. Great concept and wonderful execution!

Sounds like a serious MOOP issue. I can't imagine the DPW was too happy about those. I've thought it would be cool to try some helium balloon art, but the issue of blowing MOOP has helped me to decide against it. What were you thinking?

The burning bike rider was one of the best pieces I saw this year. It was brilliant in conception and masterful in execution. I've also got just a few seconds of video. I wish I had more. It was truly a vision from Hell.

Burning Man as a Business

Despite the "no commerce" rhetoric, it's clear that a number of burners are making money, breaking even, or at least recouping some of their expenses by engaging in Burning Man related business activities. This includes professional photographers who sell their images (giving BMorg a 10% cut if they...

Re: dead horse

Sadly, the issue of race in America is far from being a dead horse. It will be a long time before we can escape our history, even if we can pretend--for several days in a remote Nevada desert--that it doesn't really exist.

It's also interesting to see you categorize all the white folk as tight-asses while the people of color who would attend do not have this distinction.

The Burning Man and the Golden Calf undoubtedly have a lot in common. Picture Larry Harvey emerging from a giant dust devil carrying tablets inscribed "If it didn't come from your body, don't put it in the potty", "Leave No Trace", and the like.
