Re: Any rock music on the playa?

I might of said that wrong......Of course there is a choice, I gave some Good antidotes. What I meant by "whether we like it or not" I was referring to actual ROCK bands on the playa. The logistics are just not in favor of it. Now, rock music played over a PA, all you have to do is go int...

Re: Any rock music on the playa?

I don't see how a non-indy rock concert experience is probable at Burning Man, and anything less just doesn't have the same impact and will feel also-ran. All the bands with professional sound systems are out making money at concert halls and sports arenas. There is just too much involved to get a ...

Re: Has anyone used these goggles before?

Hmm that's good to know about the astaxanthin, as I am normally loath to leave the house without my shades. Is it something you'd find at a health food store? Wikipedia didn't seem to have too much info on it from a cursory glance. My plan was to use the goggles sparingly when the dust is flying (o...

Re: Yeah, You! No Hovering in the Porta Potty!!

That's the irony though: the only reason there is urine on the seats is because of the people who think there is. I'll actually wipe that piss off if I see it (and provided there is any tissue left). Exactly! Same here. Unfortunately this is actually a daily exercise for me in the bathroom stalls a...

It's probably too late for an appointment but ladies and gents, consider waxing as apposed to shaving out there. less muss and fuss :) Too late? I'm flying out next Thursday and was planning on getting waxed a couple of days before that. It might be too late if your hair's not long enough though!

Re: Any rock music on the playa?

Its the heartbeat of the city whether you like it or not. See? No choice. And here I thought Burning Man was all ABOUT choice... :wink: I'm cool with electronic music being the heartbeat of the city, I think it's fitting. Just so long as I can find a few capillaries that are bucking the trend. :)

I love other kinds of music so heres my antidote: 1. Go to Music Festivals the rest of the year and 2. Make my own BMan comps full of non electronic music but music that makes me feel Burny and listen to that stuff profusely on the drive there. You will get your fave songs stuck in the back of your...

Any rock music on the playa?

I like a fair share of electronic music, and that's really all I see talked about when it comes to music at Burning Man. But I am a Hard Rock girl at heart, and I would love to hear some of it out on the playa. Is there any to be had? It can't ALL be elctronic, right? :| First timer here, so not sur...

Re: Any other burners with hyperpigmentation?

Check with your doctor and max out your vitamin D before and during the burn. Makes the difference for me. I had been supplementing with D3 until pretty recently. I didn't know it made any kind of difference with sun exposure. I'll have to look into that. I also supplement with astaxanthin, which a...

Any other burners with hyperpigmentation?

Hi all. I'm popping my Burning Man cherry this year, and while I'm of course stressing about what to pack, what to wear, how much I can fit in my suitcase, etc. (I'm flying in from Fort Lauderdale), my biggest concern is the sun and my skin! I have hyperpigmentation (melasma), and when I'm out in th...
