Re: Show Us Your Cults!

Idea for Art Project. Make a Huge Statue of Steve Jobs, below his feet are hundreds of real Apple Products, like old Macs, old ipods, iphones, etc... all around the statues feet in a giant pile. then surrounding this are statues of people praying to Jobs. And of course, the whole thing burns and blo...

Re: 2013 Theme - Cargo Cult - thoughts?

I don't see this theme racist at all, if you find racism in this theme, then you're probably the type that finds racism in almost everything. Cargo Cults have existed throughout history, all over the world. I think if anything, it makes fun of Modern American society, which is the whole point. We've...

Re: 2013 Theme - Cargo Cult - thoughts?

To answer your question, the latter. The theme is Cargo Cult, which refers to a very specific thing, not a worldwide phenomenon. When folks of color see racism of any sort, even not directed at them, it tends to turn them off from an event. According to the internet, Cargo Cults are indeed a Worldw...

Re: 2013 Theme - Cargo Cult - thoughts?

Ugly Douhy, I have a bunch of people of color friends I've been trying to convince to come to BM. With this theme, there's no way they're doing it, not even in future years. I can also tell you that my camp, Poly Asylum (500 people served last year!) will almost certainly back out over this theme. ...

Re: Theme Predictions for 2013

The last remaining obvious theme to me would be one based on Animals, or the Animal Kingdom (or the Flora and Fauna post above).

I'm surprised it still hasn't happened.

Probably won't this year either.

Re: 2012 Theme Camps - will you make it this year?

After 3 years on the 9:00 Plaza providing Burners with an 80's/90's Music Alternative, Planet Earth has decided to take a break in 2012. We were leaning this way after 2011 anyways, but as fall became winter, and the late/recycled them "un-inspired" many of our camp-mates, the Great Ticket Fiasco of...

Re: Lets start talking about how to fix this

The whole ticket madness could have been easily solved by doing this instead... #1: Same price, no tiers. Make the tickets all the same price. If your money is so tight that you cant go because you need to save $80 on a ticket, then you probably shouldn't be going in the first place. (get a job) #2:...

Re: Doesn't the new theme get posted right after the Man bur

Actually the announcing of the theme right after the man burns is a recent thing. For most of Burning Man, the theme wasn't announced until the late fall, or maybe a few weeks prior to tickets going on sale in January. While it is a little odd that no theme has been announced because of the past few...

A quick note to let people know Planet Earth will be returning this year for our 3rd year in a row. Once again we'll be on the 9-Oclock Plaza, right on the corner of "B" (Birthday) and the plaza, next to Artica (ICE-9) as we've been the past two years.

Planet Earth, Burning Man's 80's/90s dance camp will be in the 9'Plaza. not sure of the exact location, but my guess is the same spot we've been the past two years, on 9 & B, next to Artica.

Odds are you're not going to find it as interesting as the Hanson concerts you went to in the 90s.
