Re: Dear BMORG: Please publish who is getting the 10,000 tic

the veterans are some of the worst moop offenders. especially those ridiculously large esplanade camps that are responsible for tons of moop. there will always be moop no matter what, and there is a simple process of paying people to clean it up. I'm calling troll-post on this. This poster has 100%...

Re: Dear BMORG: Please publish who is getting the 10,000 tic

Better yet - why don't YOU go and fucking volunteer, instead of dissing those of us who usually work 2 or 3 departments to make sure YOU can do the fucking burn. 2 departments in on week, yup that is me. Already done it, thank you for very much. Jeez... this yuppie entitlement shit is SO not burner...

Re: Dear BMORG: Please publish who is getting the 10,000 tic

The American value system is completely wrapped around the Christian values of right and wrong (self righteousness), truth and absolutism. Even on eplaya. Social media has brought unprecedented voyeurism. So transparency is in the vogue. How often do we hear, "I'm entitled to transparency". But if ...

Re: Dear BMORG: Please publish who is getting the 10,000 tic

Here's what I want you to do. Pay $400 for a ticket. Then WORK the entire burn. Do NOT look at the art, do NOT go to the music camps, do NOT get drunk/stoned/lit up the entire week. Don't go somewhere in fear you'll get dosed. Wear a uniform that makes you stand out like a beacon, and have everyone...

Exactly how the tickets are being distributed hasn't been made public yet. Your camp organizer needs to fill in the questionaire and get in line. Until that's done, your camp won't know anything.
