Re: REMINDER: Registration for Mutant Vehicles closes May 1

If I want to build a car over the summer (something small: a mobile picnic table), should I fill the form out now?

What if there is only a 50% chance that I might do this? What if I get inspired to build something totally different this July?

Re: The playa and amplified sound

2011, Esplanade... 50' frontage, 3 couples, one sound system, one tiny art car with huge sound system, ugly, angry music. They'd turn on the system, then drive away in the car. Hours later they'd return, park the car aiming into the neighbors' art installation, run awful sound, to no one. They were...

Re: Dome fabric question

We used black out shade and it worked really well.

We tried tyvek, which was a BITCH to work with, was expensive, etc.

Black-out drapes were cheap, available locally, and easy to work with.

What size rebar do you guys use? I've been using 3/8", bent into a candy cane, and this year I'm going to be using the same, but with a hook welded to the top (see attached)[1]. I am seeing a lot of people recommend 1/2", though. Why? This seems like overkill for anything other than *very* large str...

If you seriously can't find tickets, you're not looking.

I'd bet there are tickets available *below* face value as the event approaches. The lottery was stupid, but it all worked out in the end.
