The reason the asshole who started this thread is a troll is because he or she is using the existence of sexual assaults to attack the LLC and the event itself. Just think of the very title: "Burning Man's Rape Problem". I got news for you: rape, date-rape, drugging, etc are problems all over the c...

Old news, troll-boy. And I'm sure Carol needs your help. I especially like your legal advice. Please people, let this thread die the death it deserves.[quote] I'm missing something. Why is this a troll and why should the thread die? It might be better placed in the other thread on this topic, but I...

I agree with theCryptofishist, and would even take it further. I think the majority of men who attend BM would welcome the chance to defend a woman's right to walk the playa any time in any mode of dress without being hassled. I'm just at a loss of how to effectively address the issue. We guys have ...

What other festivals remind you of Burning Man

So many people are complaining about BM getting too large, too many frat boys, not enough art, etc. I was wondering if there are other tribal gatherings that are smaller and remeniscent of the BM "old days." Any thoughts?

I know a photog who took a plane ride to get that shot for the BRC Gazette. I wrote to him asking for the photo but have not yet heard back from him. I will contact you if and when I do. However, it will most likely be posted with all the other '04 shots once they are put up. I just don't know how l...

Some people are not suseptible to public shaming. In fact, I suspect the worst offenders would LOVE to see pics of themselves grabbing boobs or pissing on the outside of a portapottie. They would give the URL to all their friends so they could see "how totally wasted I was at Burning Man." The Porta...

The burn was a truely etherial experience for me. Just looking around and realizing that there was about 30,000 people gathered in a giant ring was pretty intense in itself. Then came the fire dancers. We had seen them all week, so the sight of twirling fire was not new. But there were dozens of the...

I wrote and article on Exodus for the BRC Gazette, and I was impressed with the effort put into the whole afair. They have over 50 people involved in Exodus. That's a lot of organizing already, and I don't think adding cards and other devices will add much. No matter what organizational devices you ...

I thought the folks at Costco Soulmate Exchange were great. The folks at the Guilded Lotus were masters of mellow. Lush was just that. I blame them for my bad knee, because I danced for 12 hours straight (drugs may have played a part). Thanks for the free CDs that you passed out after dawn on Saturd...

I must say that I expected the citizens of BRC to be friendlier. Don't get me wrong, I met a lot of friendly people. But I also met many who were decidedly unfriendly. The later really surprised me. I'm pretty outgoing, and I was all over the playa. I just expected folks to be...nice. I expected the...

Thanks for all the replies, and please keep them coming. Our head chef said that fatty foods like burgers and brats were very popular. I suspect we have a higher percentage of carnivores in our camp.

I'm bringing my bongoes, if that will help. Strictly amature, mind you. I was also a professional standup for 10 years and studies improv at Second City. It would be fun to do some improv. I'm a pretty good MC, if you need that. Let me know.
