Comfort Food 4 President!

Comfort Food Many people turn to comfort food for familiarity, emotional security, or special reward. The reasons a dish becomes a comfort food are diverse but often include pleasant associations of childhood. Small children often seem to latch on to a specific food or drink (in a way similar to a s...

Maybe the theme is a way to get the community motivated to work together. The thought occurred to try organizing a series of community based art pieces to send messages to the gods. I like the idea of re-enacting crop circle formations with handheld lights, glowies, torches, etc... People could gath...

I'm curious to know what people did for the theme this year (green man). Personally I did not see much of anything related to the theme. Does the theme affect you Burn that much whether it is good or bad, easy or difficult, fun or American? This year was my first, and I didn't do anything that had t...

yep, get to thinking.

Remember the old saying, "be the changes you want to see in the world"

No doubt this theme will bring forth debate and passion. Can't wait to see how people interpret it.

Some kids left their unlit bikes in the open and walked out to deep playa. I was sitting on a piece of art nearby and watched another dude, with only a small purple glowstick in his pocket, plow into the bikes and flip over onto the playa. He got all pissed off and rode off towards the crude awakeni...

The theme is forcing us to think about issues that are so relative and important right now. While this can be seen as a "downer", I still argue that it's something that should be brought up, especially at BM. I'm all for this theme. Not sure exactly how to visualize it, but maybe that's not as impor...

Cheers SFN! Changing the theme or even modifying it once it has been announced could happen, but IMO that is a compromise of the original vision. This is a fine line approaching political correctness. PC BM! wha, I never! :shock: Global Dream is great, I like it, and I am ALL for it, but that is a d...

Haha, well.....

You COULD force it's head into the water trough, and if it STILL didn't drink, just keep it there until it drowns, which is kinda like making it drink.

My first reaction was *cringe* wtf! too. Keep thinking about it, keep re-reading the brief, probably soon-to-be more elaborate description of the theme. Detach yourself from your immediate "gross out" first reaction and approach it with a clean unbiased mindset. It's a very different one, but that d...

Burning Man is an American Event and is made up of mostly Americans trying to live by the 10 principals for 1 week out of the year. Perhaps it's not such a bad idea to be asked to consider our dreams and reflect them with art. They claim this is the third installment of a theme trilogy: Hope & Fear:...

Me and my two mates were virgin burners for '07. We kinda liked it... a lot. A LOTTA-lot. What an amazing experience! Yet, I feel we barely scratched the surface of the playa.

The theme probably won't change, so find a way to make it work for you, ignore it, or forget it. Does it really affect your experience that much? I'd argue the Green Man theme was pretty much a non-event for nearly everyone this year. It's obviously going to give people some conversational ammo, whi...

Great idea! I'd participate in such a thing for the next burn. I'm a big fan of the current radio station, and was thinking the same thing at BM this year. The events book was a little difficult to handle out on the playa. I'm sure there are good reasons for doing it the way they did, but it was rou...
