Never met any of that crew...can't say what they were like. Tried to flag them down a couple times to chat but just got a head shake, smile and wave. Not once did i ever see it slow down AND there always seemed to be the same people on it. if one wants to give to the community, perhaps consider more than just drive-by waves.
I thought the MV was cool and wanted to meet and talk to the creator(s). But it seemed like too much of an effort to give whomever kudos.

And now you're on here asking for accolades. :roll:

Hey PaulTahoe,

I noticed you guys bailed on bringing Christina in to your 8: and Bish parking spot and instead seemed to stop her outside of Playaskool.

What happened?

(We were Playaskool's neighbor's at 8:10 and A. Watched the boat run aground once into Playaskool's shower structure. Yikes!)

It looks like most of the posts here are dealing with Christina (and the original post, which counts), they just may not be saying what you wish they were.

It's a public forum, you can't expect just getting yes-men on here anymore than you can on the real playa; people on eplaya are free to express their feeling towards your post. You are also free to post in other threads whether or not you agree with the OP.

Burning Man and the eplaya are lovely like that, with the whole "diversity of opinions" thing.

I guess we differ on what constitutes "amazing."

One late night in 2006 I was with a friend of mine and we wanted to find the camp that made grilled cheese sandwiches but we were on the other side of the Playa. This guy comes by in a German U-boat and we ask if we can get on. He says okay and says his name is Doug but his Playa name is Steve. We ask if he's up for grilled cheese sandwiches and he says that his friend was supposed to bring him food but he hasn't eaten. So we cruise over to the inner street where the grilled cheese camp is, but they've closed up. Some people are milling around and we said we brought a boat and they agree to turn on the griddles again just for us. We had a swell time with them. Afterward Steve takes us on a tour of things that go speedbump in the night. It's astounding how many passed-out people there are in open Playa.

To me, that was amazing.

Amazing - building a replica of a Spanish Galleon on a mobile frame.

Interesting - modifying a yacht to fit on a mobile frame.

One seems very artistic and inspired while the other seems very reality TV...

Care to guess which is which?

This is just my opinion of course. As I saw no boas on board in the video, they are safe from any true wrath....

All behavior/personality judgements aside: While I respect anyone that builds.. hell.. ANYTHING out there.. I've seen many, many, MANY other art cars more impressive or creative than the Christina. I mean really all it has going for it is the semi-shock value of a giant boat. But.. that's all it is.. an old boat on a giant chassis with honestly some pretty cheesy and poorly drawn/painted blue "waves" on the side.

I've seen WAY more creative and impressive golf cart based art cars. I've seen 63428723894728375632 times more impressive school bus/other large chassis based art cars. This idea that this old POS boat on top of cement truck chassis is some be all, end all, "Queen" of anything? Uh.. uhm. Ok.

I mean.. I may have thought it was cool before and I do still.. but wow. I'm personally a mix of shocked/disgusted/head shaking/wow at the amount of holier-than-thou-art car-ness going on. I knew it was bad before, but this takes the cake..

The Christina is cool in her way, quite an accomplishment, but Queen of the Playa? That's like MJ being the King of Pop, doesn't count as a self-bestowed title.

Would I like to ride on her? Um, just to have done it. Will I ever get the chance? Nope. I have a horrible fear of ladders, and I just ain't a pretty playa pony. That's okay.

The FB thing? Sure, whatever, not my cup of tea. But then, the fucking Trash Fence has a FB page and I Like that.

"Embodies the spirit of Burning Man"? Are you fucking kidding me? I got yer embodiment rit'cheer.

The discussion here? Nothing new, jump in, move along, have fun. Yay radical self-expression.

Now I want to build ballistic missile submarine for playa. OK, maybe just U boat, but forgot how cool it was, esp. with pier now being obstacle to run into and/or nuke. Need for space, perhaps should do kickstwarter for it. Arrghhh...

On a side note, every single pic that has been posted is 156751221 times more creative and cooler than a POS old boat on top of a cement truck chassis..

..and to think that none of these cars even had "royalty" attached to their names. :roll:
