<So are you advocating "playa justice" right off the bat by squirting cameras with water guns? So what if that camera cost $2K with lenses and all, you have no problem ruining it just to get a point across?> While I agree with you that playa justice should not be the first option (and, mind you, I d...

<And it is actually insulting to men to expect that they cannot change it. And it especially insults the men who don't hoot.> Look, if a guy wants to organize something to help CT out, I'm for it. I just don't think we females should have to rely on all the big, strong men for assistance. CT is abou...

Critical Mass

So, I was not on the playa this year, but the past years I've attended have all been like this- womyn love the event for what it stands for, but don't want to end up stumbling across their naked breasts on the Internet or in a "Girls Gone Wild: Burning Man" video someday. What to do? I personally fe...

Pee Funnel Camp

Now that was a good idea gone wrong. No offense to anyone who camped there, but their funnels leaked. And, yes, I did position it correctly (I know someone is going to comment brattily that you have to hold the top of the tube vertically. I DID! IT STILL LEAKED!)

great minds think alike

How funny! I made a coat with those very same glow-in-the-dark stars for last year's Burn. Of course, I was glueing them onto a black PVC jacket, so super glue worked tres excellent for me. If you are trying to affix to material, perhaps that clear fishing wire-type thread and sew an X around the po...

Oh, yeah, I remembered another kick-ass costume... the traveling shower guy!!

Oakenfold?

I'm fairly sure it was only a joke (Paris Hilton at BM? Puleeze...) but did Oakenfold really spin on the playa? Haters can save their rants, but I will be disappointed if I missed out on his set due to a lack of location in the guide.

The CT parade was one of my best memories from Burning Man '03. Yeah, there were the yahoos shouting stupid stuff and oogling and such, but whatever. More importantly were the great guys in the crowd- the guy who threw a burgandy boa-scarf around my neck as I rode by... the guy who gave me a bite of...

Cloud costume

I am creating an outfit made entirely (OK, I lied, there is a base layer) of cotton balls. It will be my cloud costume. I was inspired last year by people who made outfits out of cheap bulk items and viola! Inspiration struck. Of course, by the end of the week, the costume will be playafied, but suc...

I think your dog camp idea is great. I have a desert dog as well (basenji) and he would do fine in the heat... no problem with loud noises or costumed people... and basenjis don't bark. The playa would admittedly be hard on his paws, but I am sure that a flooring could be created for the dogs to be ...

Shade structure over a VW van?

Last year we were cruelly awoken every sunrise by the heat and so this year I want to make a shade structure that can go over our VW Vanagon.

The problem I've found is that if you sew EL wire on clothing, you can't wash it. In my mind, that's a lot of effort for a one-time use item. A better way to work it is to sew tabs onto the clothing every few inches and then thread the EL wire through the tabs. Then you can easily pull the wire out ...

Uggs are the best thing you can wear on playa when the sun goes down! Give your tootsies a quick wipe-down, slather on the lotion, then put your bare foot into the comfy goodness that is Ugg. If you buy the color sand, as I did, the playa dust will match the boot exactly and you'll come home with th...

Burning Man Virgin shirt needs new owner

After 3 years of trying each summer, in 2003 I was finally actually able to attend Burning Man. It was pretty much exactly what I expected, after reading everything I could find and talking to everyone I knew about their experiences... which is to say, I had an awesome time! In fact, I'm already cou...
