Re: The playa and amplified sound

As someone who will be bringing amplified sound to our camp because I really enjoy playing, playing with, and listening to music, I hope to contribute a bit of "I haven't heard this song in forever!!" and a fair helping of "what the hell IS that?" to the soundscape. All I know fo...

Re: What do you like to hear on the Playa?

From these responses, I take it the eplaya doesn't listen to music much? Fair enough. Read the responses again. I think most people here like music and listen to it. The playa is just... different. The music is pervasive. The whole place just thrums at all hours of the day. And you can find it all....

Re: Metayurt (3 hexayurts sharing interior walls)

We do a similar structure, though we don't "share" the walls. We just abut the walls and seal them with tape. And there are only two of us using the structure. It makes for a very comfortable abode. We air condition it and have instant hot water showers, freezer and refrigerator and a pla...

Re: Metayurt (3 hexayurts sharing interior walls)

I've never really been a yurt guy myself, but it seems to me that as the number of yurts increases (or as the yurt farm grows), they'd lose their appeal. They never get any prettier or cheaper per square foot of shade. Plus the yurt panels are kind of a pain to transport and store, IMO. We hauled a...

Metayurt (3 hexayurts sharing interior walls)

Hey all, My camp (30 people or so) is planning on using a few hexayurts for sleeping. I was thinking that if the yurts shared some walls, the structural integrity would not be compromised, but we'd be able to bring a few less walls, and minimize the dust flow. Here is what I was thinking. http://i.i...

A one-way mirror usually has plenty of tint. If you have vent at the top as well as the bottom, it will create its own airflow.


Great! Thanks so much for the advice.

Re: Have we ever liked a Theme?

I like Rites of Passage for a theme. It is a little too broad though, but I guess that's the point. Wouldn't it be interesting if the burn had a very specific theme? I often find that the more restrictive the guidelines, the more creative people are/ have to be to meet them. What if the theme was Go...

Secure Glass to Geodesic Dome

Hey all!

I am a hopeful future Burner who wants to bring something great to the Playa, so I have been thinking out possibilities for art pieces to bring to the 2012 burn.

Does anyone know a good way to panel a geodesic dome with glass? Would it be welding? Caulk?

Thanks!
