Re: Ticket Problem - advice needed

Preface: your situation is shitty and you have my sympathy. Official policy is that you are required to have a ticket in your hand when you reach the gate. It's highly unlikely that BM ticket support will tell you anything different. Printouts or photos or copies are not acceptable substitutes. What...

Thanks for that info Popeye. Never thought about who was tracking at ePlaya. And I've been off FlakeBook/FuckeryBook/Bookface for a long time.

Re: Radical De-Commodification?

The criticism of the Borg is well deserved. And yes I know everyone buys lots 'o shit to be able to attend. BUT.... I take issue with the premise that because others aren't doing de-commodification right, you shouldn't still attempt to achieve the intent of the principle. Said another way, I wouldn'...

Re: Radical De-Commodification?

I'm in favor of slapping some painters tape over any big logos because: 1) come on, it's really easy and 2) it's in the spirit of the event. Decommodifying pre-playa does out you as a burner while driving, which has it's pros (friendly waves! sometimes boobs!) and cons (more attention by police tho ...

Re: Vandals Strike 2016 Sound Camp Infrastructure

I have acknowledge from the start that I cannot be 'reasonable' about this nor can I reconcile my opposing feelings. The thinking side of me says "What they did IS NOT what Burning Man is about. At all." To me radical acceptance doesn't allow for picking & choosing what you accept; it means being ok...

Awesome cup

A pretty awesome stainless steel cup was left at Camp DIY. It may have sentimental value to its rightful owner.

If it's yours, tell me what's on it. (I am too lazy to figure out how to post a pic on here.)

If you arn't on Gate road, you have to deal with me or my crew. (By the way, Since Burning Man happens of Federa...

Re: volunteering with GPE

I fucking LOVE working Gate. 2014 was my first year and enjoyed every second of it. It does take a certain breed to enjoy standing in the lanes for 6 hours; I actually prefer gate to sitting in AC working Perimeter. And you run the risk of getting run over by sleep-deprived, hyper excited Birgins. T...

Ooh! Ooh! I wanna come this year.

I'll bring something, of some nominal value. It might be alcohol. It'll probably be alcohol. Or it might be a big burlap bag full of roasted almonds/cashews/peanuts so I can wander around telling people "Partake of my nut sack!"....maybe.

Re: Lost green backpack w/camelbak and CAR KEYS

Hi Samy, A green camelback was found at Camp DIY (6:00 & G), it also had an Ca DL and credit card inside. I believe it was given to Lost & Found. Not trying to give you false hope since I'm not 100% what the name was (I wasn't the one that found it) but maybe lost & found has it. I'll also email my ...

There's nothing more enjoyable for me than a [brief] white-out while out in deep playa. It's oddly peaceful. Plus it makes you think about the incredible place you're having an incredible time in.

Re: Large Sound Camp DJ Line-ups.

I'm going to throw my 2 cents in here because I'm feeling saucy. Prepare your torches and pitchforks accordingly. 1. If a big sound camp promotes/advertises/posts their lineups AFTER the bulk of ticket sales are over (ie pre-OMG but post STEP closing) then that would be OK because the lineup most li...
