Re: The Individual Sale has started!

Across the world work production has decreased due to no line count for the tickets at Burning Man, I just know it! I've been bumped, rest of camp been bumped, and those who got through were declined from buying two tickets and have to start over. and are they supposed to try for two again, or go on...

Re: Any regrets?

Well if you're gonna be a strange anything, strange burner is the way to go. 3 regrets for me is actually pretty short, and I credit much of that to my evolving Burning Man experience. I was the shyest thing the first year I went, and spoke to almost noone that wasn't in my camp, and had one sheet i...

Any regrets?

After I posted a regret on a confession thread I wondered about other peoples' regrets. Burning Man is a place we might like to think of as a no regrets zone, but surely others have felt the sting of regret...right? I had three this year - I forgot the camp name-tags that my son designed. They were ...

Re: Top Asshats of 2012

The drugged, half-naked guy who popped the hubcap off a camp-mates car, threw it at my tent then climbed on top of the car counts as it was jarring, but his asshattery was in getting too wasted in the first place. My light was on and I think it was some attempt to get help in a quiet neighborhood. I...

Re: 2012 confessions - CLEANSE YOURSELF

I drove 35 mph into Black Rock City. Well, I wasn't driving, and I'm not sure exact speed, but it was fast, and I was down for it. I also passed some moop by.

Oh, I'll confess a regret. He offered me molly, and I declined (Molly being wholly beside the point, as I'm sure you'll understand). :cry:

Re: Did we win?

No. We didn't win. My amazing experiences happened despite the ridiculous lottery and equally ridiculous fixes, not because of them. It caused our camp even more challenges than usual, something we always have more than enough of. Whoop de doo, we rose to the additional challenges; that was never in...

Re: 2012 : Take back Burning Man

Thanks Ugly, that's the funniest document I've read today, and I have to say a most reasonable response. Vargaso, I was probably looking at the same 2011 plan, and the perimeter was supposed to be good through 2015, so the increased area seems to be entirely due to Smoke Creek party promotion. As so...

The degree to which it's word of mouth would be an interesting thing to figure out, but I think there are plenty of people who hear about it through other means now.

Re: Perhaps burner's narcissism had a role.

You're right of course - people get into habits, and this one's been broken for many. We will see this in Black Rock City, the question only being to what degree. Saying so on eplaya will get you the cursory whinging/whinging accusation, enjoy.

Re: Shut the FUCK up about virgins.

That had to be said, and in my opinion was perfectly worded, fuck and all. To each their own, I suppose.

The only problem I have with the message is that now I have an ancient Neil Sedaka song in my head about a river that people flocked to until too many came. Curse you gibson!
