OK, How abou Espresso Commandos

We roam the playa and BRC streets with our incognito mutant espresso cart, stopping at our whim to pull shots of whatever the hell we feel like making and handing them out to whoever happens by. Then we move off into the night to look for another target location.

What I like about Center Camp is the chance to relax with a coffee and watch people. It has almost become a regular, just before sunrise thing with me: go to Center Camp, have a coffee, relax, and then head back to my camp and bed. I think Center Camp does provide a place of refuge for the less-prep...

Kinetic II, The interior of Alaska is sparsely monitored by weather equipment today. That limits the ability to forecast the weather and evaluate climatic change. Adding new reporting stations is an on going project involving the NWS (Nation Weather Service) and the University of Alaska, Denali is o...

While it is common usage today to use the word gender to mean sex, anthropologist make a distinction: sex is a physical trait (male/female), gender is a role or behavior (masculine/feminine). So I'm thinking that whether straight, gay, or bisexual, you may indeed be bigender. Most of us probably are.

Oh yeah!

Did you see the petite woman with animated cool-neon butterfly wings this year. Intricate, delicate, so cool.

I imagine there is a touch of peer pressure in all attire choices. I say wear what you can't wear the rest of the year, but would like to. Or not. But please, guys, try to be more inventive than the male BM uniform: sarong and a shirt. Wear a sock on your cock. Dip yourself in latex paint. Prance ab...

DE FACTO, I'll have to think about this, but it seems to me that the gender roles (and, therefore, femininity and masculinity) arose in antiquity from the physical qualities and attributes of each sex, not from individual sexual preferences. In other words, how you use your sex organs doesn't change...

All my relativism aside, it occurs to me that Digiman may have been simply interested in the various expressions of Girlie Girlness, each for its own sake. A sort of meta-girl watching. Instead of sitting outside of a cafe falling is lust with each girl as she walks by, Digiman can thrill to each de...

Someone recently showed me a review of a book devoted to the concept of masculinity through history (the name of which I can't recall just now). I'm sure someone could devote a book (or a library) to the concept of femininity through the ages as well. I'm also sure that someone could devote a book t...

Kinetic II has a good point. I realize that if I felt a certain artistic lack on the playa this year it was partly my fault: I did not build anything myself. Oh sure, I was busy all year with my work... blah blah blah. But bottom line I did not get a piece together for the playa. In that way I let m...

Ouch... head spinning... ahhh....

As if it's not bad enough that men have inherited the need to prove their masculinity, now someone wants women to prove their femininity?

Here's a clue: Femine is what females do (even when it doesn't match your pre-conceptions).

I like these ideas.

How does BMOrg pick the theme?
Who gets input?
Are those people reading this?

Story... Elaborate

Could you elaborate on "Story." Do you mean the word as the theme? or the concept?

Story...
- Fables and Faerie Tales
- Graphic Novels
- Tell me a Story
- Once Upon a Time
- It was a Dark and Stormy Night

Just free associating here.

Theme for 2004

OK, I know everyone is just winding down from this year's burn. But I wanted to start talking about next year's theme because I believe a great theme brings out the greatest creativity. For example, the Floating World theme of 2002 evoked a lot of wonderful oceanic, aquatic, ethereal and even whimsi...
