ASTRO SHACK JaVa JoINt crew positions still available

Do you love great coffee, wild tunes, outsider art, outlaw poetry, beatnik aliens, hot rod space ships, mutant cyborg gear heads, trans-solar scooter gangs, wigged-out weirdos, and caffeine fiends of every stripe? If so, we have room on board for about 0.001% of the population of Black Rock City. It...

Re: What are some of your favorite camps to visit at Burning Man?

Here are some of the favorites I've visited in recent years, in no particular order: Skinny Kitty Teahouse If you want to drink tea, this is the place. Excellent teas of both herbal and caffeinated varieties, ample seating, brilliant sound system, and an indescribably awesome space (much bigger than...

The ASTRO SHACK JaVa JoINt is looking for a few good freaks to brew the bean and make the scene at our coffee house in Black Rock City. We serve some of the finest fresh ground dark roast French press in the galaxy, brewed as black as the depths of interstellar space itself, with wild tunes, outlaw ...

Am looki...

Re: Burners who don't go to Burning Man?

As I travel more on the west coast, I encounter more and more people who don't consider regional attendees to be burners, or Burning Man Regional Network events to be burns. At BM this year I got to watch about a dozen people ask my girlfriend how many burns she'd been to, and the look on their fac...

Re: Plywood Triangle Gussets for Wood Structure: How does DPW do it?

What you are trying to prevent is your rectangular structure from becoming a trapezoid. The DPW sinks their posts into the ground. Because you are bolting to the ground, your resistance to the post tilting provided by your ground bracket would be much less than a DPW design. You can add diagonal st...

Plywood Triangle Gussets for Wood Structure: How does DPW do it?

I have done a lot of searching but can't get quite close enough to the details I need, so I'd better ask: how best to brace a wood shade structure to prevent racking (leaning / collapsing) under wind load? The structure: 16' x 20', 12' high in front & 10' in back. 4x4 posts with 2x6 beams. Tarp ...

Re: Greetings, Earthlings!

Actually, I made a pretty good replica out of two 9-foot/10-foot aluminum satellite dishes -- the kind some earthlings used to have in their front yard so they could watch television from Mars or somewhere out there (presumably). I still see such dishes in rural yards, so maybe... if you are handy?...

Re: Greetings, Earthlings!

Yeah, the Man, like, impounded it, right? And with those warrants still outstanding, no way I'm gonna show up to try to get it back. Doesn't matter, can't fix it anyway, parts are a bitch to find - actually impossible, what with the quarantine and all, dig? So it looks like I'm gonna be stuck here f...

Greetings, Earthlings!

I’m not from around here, not originally. I crashed-landed at the edge of a desert (not this one - a different one very far away) quite a long time ago. Fortunately I was found in a land where hospitality is taken seriously and strangers in need are taken care of. A kindly and skilled doctor patched...

Re: Overwhelmed: I Seek To Create a Theme Camp

YES! Yes, if you feel inspired, you should do it. Your idea sounds wonderful. Yes, you can have a theme camp if you want to. What is a “theme camp?” Just a camp where random citizens off the street can participate in something the camp is doing. Theme camps come in all shapes and sizes and types. So...
