Re: Cancelled Open Ticket Sale.

i think we all need to come to terms with the fact the large theme camps are unnecessary and actually impede a good burn.

only then can we heel.

yep, the truth is quite sickening. all these years you've devoted yourself to the promotion of someone else's brand. not many burners can see that. you've taken your first step into a larger world - good for you, tiger!

Re: Cancelled Open Ticket Sale.

40% virgins. probably 40% to 2nd & 3rd year participants = newbie fest. i like the sound of this. it could be a great year with so many enthusiastic, non-jaded participants. there will be less stuff and fewer camps, but i think the enthusiasm of the newbies will make up for that. it'll be a much mor...

Re: Our Realization

a agree. i guess there's nothing wrong with being mainstream. the mainstream has a lot to offer. the people are friendly and they bring a certain je ne sais quoi to the playa.

i guess the saddest part is that we as burners can no longer consider burning man to be counter-cultural now that it's gone mainstream. i feel like i lost about 15 cool points amongst my so-called friends.

He's teaching kids that it's okay to have a diet solely based on cookies and sweets, thereby ENCOURAGING childhood obesity. it's far better to raise a fat kid with well-rounded interests and intellectual pursuits (monsterpiece theater), than allow your kid to think it's okay to be a whinny, dancing...

Maybe if you loved a little more.. and allowed things like dancing muppets in your life.. we might yet turn that frown.. upside down! Everyone loves dancing muppets. But the job of the Children's Television Network is not just to entertain, it's also to teach. The message Elmo sends out is that it'...

Re: STEP policy change: 2 tickets now allowed

this was a PR stunt. they took away the second STEP ticket in the first place just so they could give it back in a show of how much they're listening to your concerns. the BMorg has NEVER listened to the concerns to the attendees. if they ever have, it was just a show until the person would stop tal...

Re: Our Realization

burners' sense of humor never gets old. it's like you've invented humor itself and have evolved it into its own special language that mere mortals can't understand... like 'bacon' and 'safety third' - it's just so limitless and witty, like a magical blend of irony and wisdom. i suppose it comes from...

Re: Our Realization

goes to show how powerfully their marketing has succeeded in selling their brand. i agree. the marketing of BM is so subtle and obvious at the same time. the spectacle of the event, created by the ticket holders, is the marketing. the marketing is also the word-of-mouth of these ticket holders. the...

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

If the borg doesn't want old veteran theme camps there, then why are they making tickets available to old veteran theme camps? those 10k tickets aren't going to veterans in the normal sense. they're going to friends of the people who work with the BMorg. while they may be veterans, they're moreover...

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

you don't have to believe me that the problem with burning man is the veterans. BMorg has basically laid it out for you: 40% of tickets went to virgins and that was no accident. and you can be sure that about 40% went to 2nd and 3rd participants - also no accident. that's why so many veteran theme c...

but they are not going to mess this up by picking who gets the 10,000 tix this will be my second year and i'd be much happier without the 10k tickets going to veterans. the veterans stand in the way the evolution of BM. so giving the tickets out selectively to these people is tampering with the nat...
