Re: I recieved a ticket, but this lottery thing is BOGUS!

"Ya gotta earn the burn!" Spoken like someone that got his ticket. Can't you even feel a little sympathy for those that are hurting right now? Ad hominem will get you no sympathy. I'm stating the same thing said since last years ticket sellout. If you want a ticket and don't have one, whinging won'...

Re: I recieved a ticket, but this lottery thing is BOGUS!

This lottery system was a terrible idea that completely (and totally unsurprisingly) backfired, and no amount of elitist BMOrg apologists spouting off ridiculous "catch-phrases" in a haughty, patriarchal tone is going to change that. ------------- As an aside, I think I can finally admit to myself t...

They were not denied, they just didn't get tickets in the lottery. Patience, and persevere. Your friends can find tickets, but just like we told you last year, they have to put the effort into looking for them. What's the point, you asked? You go to an awesome thing in the desert and make up to 53,...

How excited I was when I got an email telling me that yes! I indeed received a ticket through the lottery system! A $409 ticket! (Yes, yes, I put the top ticket price as max amount I would be willing to pay to increase my chances, but in no way am stoked on paying the highest amount in FEBRUARY) OK,...

Re: Doesn't the new theme get posted right after the Man bur

Whatever theme is decided, I sure hope its better than "Rites of Passage". Wow. Vague theme = vague, tiny, unimpressive art. I saw a lot of boats. So that made the giant dock pretty cool. But my late night romps into deep playa were pitiful and saved only by a rousing game of bowl-o-pool.

We got in line at about 8:30pm on Sunday night, after a brief bathroom visit/beer at Bruno's. We were headed to our camp at about 12:25. We had lots of fun dancing around the line, playing music, talking to people, and sharing snacks. I had hoped for it to be quicker, but 4 hours didn't seem absurd ...

Re: Indian Tacos

I love the indian tacos! The difference is in the sort of shell they use. Its a sort of flat bread. I usually get one on the way into TTITD, but last year exodus took us 3 HOURS and I was starving by then and my last Cliff bar looked extremely unappetizing by that point.

Digital SLR protection out on the Playa

I know this question has been posed twice before in previous years, but I'm wondering if any photographers out there have any new clever tricks for bringing an SLR out on the playa. I brought mine out last year, and thanks to the rain, I was able to take a lot of pictures around my camp safely, but ...

Awesome, Sexy, Orphans looking for a home in YOUR camp!

So, this years plans have taken one sucker punch after another. The current drama is that our wonderful camp of many years merged with Burn Town this year. Burn Town placed a cap on campers. That cap was met. Our camp mates failed to let us in on this until yesterday. This is problematic, as I like ...

Re: dry ice

DRY ICE IS THE SHIT. If you pack it in your coolers just right (ice size to food items ratio), you can have frozen and refrigerated goods all week long, and way less drippy nasty ice mess. That's all I have to say on the matter.

Re: New street map for 2011

Off center camp is dangerously close to our camp, though I think we've decided to ditch our camping spot at merge with Burn Town to create "Wannaburntown" for this year, on the (nearly) opposite side of the Playa. Which is good because we've always been a bit too close to Apokalyptika for my liking.

Hell yeah! I totally agree! Remember the conversation we had about one or two good newbies coming out of the tickepocalypse? As I've said before, I've lurked this board for years for tips and advice. The "tickepocalypse" was simply the catalyst to get me to start an account and open my loud mouth.
