Oh, there's a theme we don't need. As if we don't have to deal with hillbillies enough as it is?

I can see it now...the entire city covered with 7-11 camps giving out free beer, and every art car has NASCAR all over it.

No, thanks.

Reading the theme left a dull thud, at best, inside me. Not inspiring in the least. When I go to Burn, I want to get away from anything even remotely like this. This feels like an invasion, of sorts. Sorry...theme's a dud. I can't help but wonder if it's not time to resurrect some past themes; since...

I'm leaning towards try_me's side on this issue, and I don't see where he/she was putting themselves on a pedestal, either. Looks like the only person on a pedestal was David, and while he's a pivotal figure at BM, I'd wager that doesn't give him the right of way to flout the intentions of the event...

My basic thought is: Just who the hell is HE to be determining what is 'best' for about 40,000 other people, or what an event that's bigger than he'll ever be 'needs', especially since he hasn't been there since the late '90's ? Publicity-hound for a failed 'career'. He got much more than he bargain...

While I try not to think in terms of "best", as it tends to diminish the value of any of the other gifts I received, there are some that particularly stand out. Most notably, the freedom from dreaming. Only during a post-Burn get together with my campmates did I realize that I had not had a single d...

A lot of people give a rat's ass about another's approach to them. In some circles, it's called 'diplomacy', and it's usually beneficial.

Do something about the squatters in center camp. Not people dozing a little, I mean the ones on the couch curled up in their sleeping bags for hours with their backpacks taking up floor space too.

I haven't reviewed the video I shot, yet; I do know the audio may be (intentionally) questionable, as I had the camera wraped in plastic the whole time, so the mics may be a bit muffled. However, I also remember capturing a few mintues of ambience from the outskirts on my minidisc. Like I said, I've...
