[quote="First Mate Goddammit"]I got this from BurningMan.com front page...................................... 2008 Art Theme: "American Dream" This year's art theme is about patriotism -- not that kind which freights the nation state with the collective weight of ego, but a patriotism based upon a l...

The new format makes for a nice collectible to show that I was at the event. But that's about the only positive thing I could say for it. Someone needs to go back and rethink what they were trying to do because the new approach flat out bombed.

Opulent Temple: Better music, best sound system, best stage, and best overall attitude. The other place looked like some mega-corp shelled out big bucks for the uber-dome and put in crappy music. I'd put the quality of music I heard over there about a 1/4 notch above what I would hear a Clear Channe...

I think a lot of people haven't carefully read and really put much thought into the theme and what Larry's posted so far. I see more potential with it than any other theme to date, in fact instead of being a reason to skip incorporating the theme into next year's plans I think I'll fully embrace it....

I think that if this case is successfully prosecuted than financial donations to the re-election campaigns for all involved are warranted.

Thanks for the info burningflyer, the letter is already dropped off at the PO ready for sorting and sending.

Pot meet kettle, reading a post from someone with two active sock puppets leveling accusations of sock puppetry against someone else is just asinine.

Speaking of the welcoming signs my girlfriend was reading those on the way in and she wondered if there's any documentation that could tell us post event what each one said? Also is there a way to suggest ideas for next year's signs? I thought someone posted something about that on here but I can't ...

My girlfriend and I made it through this year in a small tent trailer...thankfully we had a big cargo trailer parked to the South of us that helped block a lot of wind. (Thanks Steve).

Having watched and felt the heat from Uchronia last year I wondered if anyone would be able to top that burn in sheer spectacle. It took one year and the Crude Awakening team did it.

Damn, I missed the DPW Parade this year. That was a first. Anyway, no DPW, no BRC. It's really that simple. And after the 2 day speedy rebuilding job they did with the man this year IMHO they can do whatever they fucking want to do. They've earned the right and IMHO they deserve our respect and admi...

Are you physically able to volunteer? I'd say Go!

Yourself. That being said the first time you go out there y...

Using the eplaya to figure out what Burning Man is would be like parking yourself at the edge of the playa along Jungo Road and viewing the event with a pair of binoculars. You'll figure out a few things...but you really won't have a clue what the event is about (and the magikal elements of it) unti...
