BRC Hardware is at 9:30 and Center Camp Plaza

BRC Hardware is back for year #18. We'll be bringing tools and expertise for fixing whatever we can from whenever someone is up in the morning until sundown-ish starting Sunday 8/27 (maybe Saturday as well, if setup goes quickly).

Re: The Bar 2015 Edition

Thanks everyone for your thoughts and support. Nephew got out of surgery about an hour ago. The surgeons believe that they got almost the entire mass out with the exception of a small amount of film on his brain stem, but well within the acceptable parameters for this type of tumor. He's recovering ...

Re: The Bar 2015 Edition

Hello the bar.

My mother called today.
My nephew has brain cancer.
He's two and a half.
He has surgery on New Year's Eve, if anyone can spare a prayer or a good thought.

I could use a drink.

Re: Toxic smoke, wednesday night, was that the burning lotus

It was also right by HEaT-fortunately, someone was thinking quickly and pulled the burning RV away from the equipment yard, and kept it from being much worse.

Making up a giant pot of red beans and rice for my contribution to my camp's group meals for the week. I finally had to toss the stupid cat out of the house because I got tired of having to toss him off the counter "No, Johnny, you don't get ham. Or sausage. Or beans." But my house smells ...

Copper pendants etched with ferric chloride; that's my camp's logo. The one on the right I treated with a gas flame to give a patina; the left I painted with some alcohol ink.

Re: shame on you Millionaire Camp

I'm pretty sure those are the people they're making fun of LadyMudBunny. I think maybe their satire is a little hard to read in internet posts, but if you look at their stuff, there's enough random silly ridiculousness to push it into clear satire (ie, the bottle disposal fee and cork disposal fee a...

Hi neighbors! As I mentioned on the Fixer camp thread, BRC Hardware will be on the playa for its 15th (maybe 16th?) year. This year we are at 9:15 and Center Camp Plaza. We'll have a variety of tools, parts, and fix-it types for your repair needs, and whiskey and commiseration if it can't be fixed. ...

Re: 3:00 Neighborhood Camps

WanderlustFlaneur, the camp is supposed to be satire, I'm sure. So you could say it's their art, and I bet if you drop by to check them out on playa, you can probably play along with the joke. As for love...that's one possible experience. Some of us express our love a little differently, a little mo...

Re: decommodification of pre-packaged food

Maybe cover over the labels with blank labels that you write the general description over? "Peanuts," "trail mix," "Chocolate candies." I'd make sure you *don't* cover the ingredients listing, though, since people with allergies and such would want to look that over.
