I like the idea very much, but particpation from everyone out there will be impossible. More plausible would be to gather as many people as you can find for a silent march or something. Advertise it in the schedule, make signs, and I think a lot of people would join in. As the group moves towards th...

Gypsy, I'm thinking a group of hot ladies looking to dance will have absolutely ZERO problem in finding a willing owner of an art car. Just cruise around and look for one you like, and approach the owner.

Ah, that's it! Only a slight disappointment it's a commercial product, because hey, it's not like I brought anything that cool out there. Thanks again to whoever picked us up!

Who had the incredible 6-seat bicycle in the round?

My wife and I were headed out to the playa on late Sat. night and some people riding a crazy six (or maybe more) seat bicycle, set up in a circle, came by and asked if we wanted to hop on as there were 2 empty seats. We said sure and tore ass out to the playa. With six people pedaling, it was amazin...

Hey, not sure if anyone's still reading this thread, but I thought I'd chime in. For 2008, we did a simple quonset hut style structure using schedule 40 PVC and a 10x20 ft tarp. I can't claim credit for the design, I found it here: http://www.chromatest.net/Lovemonkey/. Anyway, it is amazingly easy ...

I'm down there Tuesdays and Wednesdays, staying over on Tuesday night. I know, not exactly prime time rehearsal hours, but if we got something going, I'd be open for weekends too. I'm from the Bay Area, so I have many places to crash down there.

Hey, I'm JD. I'm a drummer and have brought (brung?) my set to the playa the past few years. One of the best moments I had this year was during the dust storm on Saturday. Had my set up right in front of camp and some dude rode by and asked if he could play it. I said sure, he played for a bit, then...

That duck car was nuts, the group I was with couldn't believe it when we saw it the first time on burn night. It was so huge it was surreal. We took a few beats to acknowledge and admire it, then continued enjoying each other and the people we'd meet. My point it that the few "funded" camps, for lac...

I think 2 weeks would dillute the energy of the event. Anyway, my wife and I are only good for 5 days before we're done.

My wife was in a porta-potty where someone had placed one of those birthday cards that sings "Happy birthday" when you open it. So the whole time she's taking care of business, she's hearing "Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you..."

When she told me, I almost fell on the floor laughing.

Drummer for hire!

Look, I included an exclamation point, so you know I ROCK!! Seriously though, I'll be out there Wed afternoon, and I'm willing to bring the beat to anyone who needs it. I can bring my funky old Gretsch set if you let me know by Tues., or I can play on whatever you've got. I'm down with anything but ...

Does the theme even matter?

The themes BARELY influence the overall tone of the event anyway. I mean last year's theme: Green Man. How many here really had a blast with that? Any crazy green camps or parties? Of course not. Crude Awakening was sort of based on the theme, but that group would have come up with something equally...

Anyone need a tall, skinny drummer?

This will be my second burn, brought the kit last year but never did set it up to play, just too busy taking it all in. Would love to get involved with a musical project this year. I'm comfortable with all styles (except jazz; love it, just can't play it), particularly the Funk. Can also pitch in on...

There was some decent rock bands playing waaay out on edge, opposite of the big dome in 2007. They had a stage on top of a full halfpipe, with skaters going while they were playing. I'd say anything goes, just bring your band, a generator and start playing. I, for one, would LOVE to hear something e...
