ne?

And the man burns as I speak, and yet no one has bothered to comment. I would venture to say that things, as they are, went off without a hitch.

Ish.

Hmmmm

Hmmm. There are a lot of good points on either side, and I particularly like the 'frosted mini-wheats' analogy. First off, people have been talking about burning the man prematurely for years. Last year there was that whole mob of law enforcement surrounding the man. That someone decided to pull it ...

Had two vivd BM dreams. One involved a plethora of Egyptian-oriented sand-art, and the other was 'at BM', only BM was in the woods with cabins. Plus there was this lady in the dream who did some kind of demonic facial-distortion thing that scared me. Weird.

Given all this fixing that seems in demand, (referring to an old adage) what is BROKEN? I mean, what is intolerably "wrong" with BM? I can think of many things I could do without or wouldn't notice missing, but nothing that 'shouldn't' be omitted certainly. Furthermore, it seems to me that art was o...

Anything I could say was better said by badger.

With one exception. This year I'm going to set up an art piece in an unsanctioned area. In the middle of the night. With ninjas. Try and stop me. ^_^

Oh yeah, and I'm not going to expect/ask anyone to fund it but me.

Looking for one of the Live Music camps

Hey there, sorry for the vague description, please bear with. Okkay, the camp I am looking to get in contact with was somewhere around 9:00 and Esplanade. It was a live music camp, including a bass and lead guitarist, drummer, flute player, and freestyler. They did a couple of live jams during the d...

I have no practical experience at fire dancing (yet!) but I have found that you can kinda familiarize yourself with the dancing and the tricks by attaching cheap LED lights to the ends of sticks or string. Once you get good at that, I haven't tried it, but I recommend sticks and roadflares. That's m...

It is bothersome to hear "I am never going back" instead of "There is a problem and we have to figure out some way to make it better". I agree, and these statements are my reason for objection.

Nicely put. Badger, if it's worth saying/doing, there'll always be someone to object. I'm just getting tired of people bashing aspects of BM while freely admitting they're not coming back. If they're not coming, why the sensationalism?

I'm sorry but if you don't want to go, don't go. If you're dissatisfied, be dissatisfied. Your pages of rationale (that's all it is) don't give any more weight to what amounts to your opinion . Furthermore, your position is so riddled with logical fallacies so as to be invalid. Lastly, what do you h...

Heh, I was kinda worried when this guy offered me oil (fragrance) thinking it was laced. It wasn't.

So far as I can tell, the drug culture at BM is "Looking for like-minded people". I could be wrong tho.

My only comment is that any undercover police presence never came of concern to anyone in my camp or the general area. The medicinal use was mature but open and never was cause for alarm. That aside, your position is both feasible and sound.
