Re: Bad Behaviour on the Playa

Ah well, maybe stories like this will foster a bit more self reliance in the starry eyed virgins that show up here. I dunno. We gave lots of warnings to that guy who was going to sit outside the gate and wait for a miracle... Some people have to learn the hard way. At least it's not as bad as a Dea...

Re: Cultural Appropriation and Decommodification LLC.

If you want to stay off of Larry and Co's legal turf, drop the "Man" part and call it "Burner Culture". ... The Burning Man trademark has power. If you can get the blessing of the BMorg, you can have an event where hundreds of people will show up and pour in their creative energy. Try doing that wi...

Re: Beginning of the end?

Was there once a Burn where someone didn't say the last Burn was the beginning of the end? Back in '99 one Burner told me because the firearms ban shut down the drive by shooting range, that it was the beginning of the end. I mean, if the Man burns it happened, when he doesn't, then its over. Leave ...

Re: DPW pulls a knife on a virgin?

So I wanted to convey a story from my camp at Burning Man.... So, every year there are weird, hard to explain post-Burn stories, both offline and online.

Re: Not a "Vet" or a "Virgin" but a.....???

NOT AN IMPORTANT QUESTION by any means, but still, when it comes to Burning Man, what if you aren't a virgin, but you don't feel like you are a "Vet", either? I think after a few burns you get identified by your camp, regional, volunteer, or whatever self-selected genre you prefer. It's less chrono...

So big media says we've suddenly becoming a Tech Industry Networking Hot Spot because Mark Zuckerburg handed out grilled cheese sandwiches.

Granted, the sandwiches were tasty, but did mainstream media take a time machine back to 2000 for this story? How out of date can a bunch of corporate types be?
