Re: law enforcement 2013

I got gifted some Amethyst in the morning after a night of raving at Robot Heart. The guy said, "this is Amethyst.... [louder] this is Amethyst..." when I looked a bit confused he said, "I'm just saying it for the ranger" who happened to drive by, and gave us a wave. Haha.

I think the key is to set your goals, and make sure you try them a little at a time, starting now. I'm going to start my bike decoration ideas in the next couple of weeks, for starters. If I'm really ambitious, some clothing crap. Earlier this summer I was at the point where starting would have been...

That's what Burning Man's all about.

I ran across only one couple making sweet love. I think they were sharing head phones w/ Barry White playing. I was impressed. Sun was up... no blankets... didn't give a shit.

I think these hit the official level of annoyance this year. While I'm sure there will be some cool video produced by them, there's one mind-blowing paradox that I've not been able to figure out.

Re: Last minute panic thread

I might need a little adhoc sewing job done - a few buttons, but the button holes (or loops I should say) are out of my skill set. Is it acceptable to assume someone at a costume tent can help? Not that it'd be necessary but I'll be making a donation of some garb I don't need.

You have clearly spent no time in Japan. Although it's usually more of a blank look in response to being asked rather than a statement. And in that lies the paradoxical entertainment value.
