Re: Show your Swag 2016

Re: Vandals Strike 2016 Sound Camp Infrastructure

The Plug N Play culture is EXACTLY what Burning Man attendees were escaping from in the very beginning, and they are exactly what tens of thousands work hard to try to escape from today, at least for a week. And yet they are encouraged to proliferate and make the event less welcoming, clean and rew...

Re: Vandals Strike 2016 Sound Camp Infrastructure

I know the airport is used by a lot of real-burner private pilots, but you have to wonder, how many rich non-burner plug & play spectators drive in? The disconnected Org wants to increase airport use, to dramatically increase spectators who need to rely on plug & plays. That's their idea of the fut...

Re: Vandals Strike 2016 Sound Camp Infrastructure

If the playa somehow fails to deliver, how about an MV with 20 blowers blasting the ground in all directions while this plays at '11':

Re: Vandals Strike 2016 Sound Camp Infrastructure

Love him or hate him, the douche is right about one thing:

This highest level of disconnect starts and ends with the airport. How many fewer Screenwriter-Takers would show up if they had to actually spend time getting there, or in any way bring some of their own shit....

Re: Vandals Strike 2016 Sound Camp Infrastructure

Vulturechow I think we agree wealthy folks (what a vague term) are and always have been a part of things, wealth and/or EDM music are not the issues at all. And I flew into BRC with a bunch of gear early Monday, yes the airport serves a great purpose in thinning the huge entry delays early on. But c...

Re: Vandals Strike 2016 Sound Camp Infrastructure

I find it reaffirming that so many commenters feel similar about the toxic effect of Plug N Plays. Vulcherchow’s “two burns” entry was very similar to my “two distinct communities” entry in the BM Journal early last week, and I’m sure many others have noted the same thing. For reference: “The result...

Re: Vandals Strike 2016 Sound Camp Infrastructure

Second-year burner here, who brought my 'virgin' wife this year. We had an overall blast (meltdowns and all) and a BM experience we'd dreamed of, but I can also say EVERY detracting element we encountered was related to PnP camps (which is why I'm following this thread). 1. While dancing at an EDM c...

Re: Night Owl Events?

No I'm definitely not trolling. I agree much of what folks have mentioned above was active 'after dark', but little was happening 'way after dark'. But again I could have just been in the wrong places. I LOVE the advice of Rock Librarian and an event app....the little book's events were sparse after...

Night Owl Events?

This may seem a silly question, but here goes. I had an incredible time my first burn last year, however each night after 10-11p I struggled to find any activities if you're not into techno trance. After the first two nights of amazing-playa-art touring I found myself roaming quiet streets for hours...

Re: 2015 was great!

I really enjoyed your recap, Maladroit. Those who were there can identify with all, first-timers can get a feel for how this year was unusual, and those who couldn't make it get a nice feel for how things went. Thank you!

Re: Hello and Welcome... What's your name? Tell me about You

Hi, I am new to eplaya as of this past weekend. I have put in a request to change name to Slaphappy, apologies for all the consonants above. 2015 was my first burn and it was phenomenal, just added my experience to many others on the '2015 stories' page. Writing here to say 'hi' to all, and to encou...

Re: First Burn 2015: Dreaming of Angels

Thank you all so much for the kind words here and the beautiful, sincere private messages. You've made this another rewarding chapter in the whole experience! I have requested to change my name to Slaphappy. Of course there's a story behind that choice, for another day when I stumble into your camp-...

First Burn 2015: Dreaming of Angels

(I wrote the following purely as a cathartic exercise to help process the intense BM experience, and several friends suggested I post it somewhere. Since this is a BM board with a section called "2015 stories", I guess this is somewhere. Everything is true. I'm not a real writer (but love how words ...
