Heya Beeze It could be that you are registered with Yahoogroups without having actually subscribed to the sdbm list. You might try using whatever cues Yahoo offers to remember your username and password or else just register again with a different user name. I had some trouble with this a couple yea...

Yer all a buncha gluttons for punishment!

Okay, there's no stemming this tide. Beach Burn next weekend, a party to compress for the decompression a week after that. Open Workshop nights resuming shortly. Good heavens, do you people have no shame?!

It's actually "carnal" knowledge. Cardinal knowledge is a subset.

The theme is usually announced with considerable ballyhoo around the beginning of the year - unless you know someone.

In fact, Captain McGuyver's costume was my favorite of the Burn. Not very visually arresting, but something about it "spoke to my heart."

Welcome Iron Chef!

You've come to the right place - at least to get steered to the right place. We had a big year in the SD Burner community and the pre-playa talk was of mounting a proper decom. My sense is that folks are still a little pooped, broke and playa-lunged to be ready to start planning right this second, b...

I see your point about uv leds for area light, but they do lend themselves to some things only they can do. I saw a bicycle (I think) with a dragon built on its frame. It had wire wing outlines and ribs, with net material between. At the end of each rib of the wings was one uv led shining inward, ma...

Doesn't this belong under the 2004 heading?

All the discussions under art and theme camps 2003 are directed to discussing projects for 2004. How's about a moment to bask in what we just accomplished?

"I suggest you stick with the thread." Good idea, that should distract everybody. I understood the original topic to be the design of theme camps and the manner in which they did or did not communicate accessibility and welcome. From my pov it's a more fruitful topic than whether or not theme camps ...

On de flipside

At the same time that unlighted and undecorated vehicles pose a public menace, there are many stories of people who tried to play by the registration rules, poured time, money and effort into their art cars, but were denied registration because some DMV functionary deemed the art not good enough. No...

Boris sez, "...as to staff and golf carts, yeah theme camp organisers work hard, but they do not carry responsibility that can come close to matching BMorg staff." I think this is too broad a generalization, amigo. There are staffers and there are staffers and there are theme camps and there are the...

Yes! String!

String of all things! But yup, it is rather compelling play. We have done a gimmick with a length of fluoro string tied to an overhead fan blade, spinning very fast and oscillating irregularly. We call it "plasma string" and it is visually arresting. Last year one of the camps around 3:00 - 4:00 had...

Glowies, Blinkies, UVies & Other Illuminations

The technical triumph of our Burn this year was a lighting trick that sounded too good to be true. But it worked beautifully and anyone who plays with uv light oughta be hepped to it. There is a standard color of stage gel called "Congo Blue." These are those translucent filters that go over a spotl...

News on the girl who fell from the dome Tuesday night?

Tuesday night we saw a girl fall from the dome on 2:00 next to Boombox. The fall did not look survivable but I later heard that the art car incident Friday night was the first fatality of the Burn. Any word on how the girl I saw fall is doing?
