What did everyone think of the Black Hole Bowl at Lustre Village? Lustre, tho isnt the most popular known theme camp, is full of interaction and really amazing grounding welcoming folk. We even had the cops bowling at one point! Hilarious.....And the PlayaPlex, tho I wasnt fond of the tunes they played, played some epic shitty movies w/real movie theater seats. Xanadu on tues night was one of my favorite experiences of a lifetime.

"A place
where nobody dared to go
the love that we came to know...
we are in xanadu....
and now
Open your eyes and see
what we ahve made is real
we are in xanadu.....
A million lights are dancing
and there you are
a shooting star......
xanadu your neon lights will shine...."

OK Im biast, but I just spent lots of time at camp this year due to beachfront property and a lot of stuff to do there. Next year my big goal is to get back to the 'burbs and be my usual exploratory self. I wouldnt personally camp on the Esplanade again.....I didnt realize how important the backstreets were to my overall experience.

almost all camps were theme camps to me.. each doing there own thing and waveing hello or inviting me in to rest and a drink..

my face hurt from smiling for a whole week.. the smile is still lasting a couple of weeks later.. it seems to atract smiles from others..and it feels so good..

How about carp camp? Yeah yeah, they built the man (twice), but they also provided a bitching bike jump. Black Sabbath Pancakes Rule!

Cereal Thriller Camp.

Loved it. Not only was their bar beautifully decorated with cereal boxes, they fed me Fruit Loops when I was least expecting it.

"Last Call!"

Post by Deviant » Sat Sep 29, 2007 11:02 pm

The "Last Call" bar on Tuesday... after all the burny things had burned, after all the street signs had been stolen, during the dust storm which tested Burner perseverance and brought the straggling, leftover Burners together in intimate bonding experiences...

There was a bar, set in front of a parachute-covered dome camp, who's name was unknown, located at about 5:08-and-something (A? B? I dunno...), which seemingly ran as a random co-op and who's patron-operators called out "LAST CALL!!!" as they served sun-heated cheap tequila and gin in scavenged, mud-caked vessels & containers of any and every possible sort.

I met God (or is it "Gawd"... anyways, he's from L.A. it seems), Jesus, Chris, a lovely woman from Davis (forgive me for not retaining her name after a substantial amount of alcohol and a long discussion about a Davis after-party), and two Aussies whom I took home with me (by their own will, believe it or not) and with whom I formed an amazing bond and probably lifetime friendships.

Now, to ME, THAT'S what Burning Man is all about.

Also, The Liquid Latex Lounge (MY bias), Camp Brigit (my neighbors with the gracious hospitality, sheltering RV, and damn-f*cking-fun Nitrous Oxide tank during the dust storm).

There's more, I'm sure, but I guess it's not necessary to try to remember everything all at once. Nor may it be possible to remember everything at all, if it comes right down to it.

Cheers to you, you're damn fine folks!
