I totally understand the sentiment. I know that as BM spreads its roots it draws in more people from the mainstream which, perhaps, will dilute the weird and wonderful element that made the event so unique in the first place. I am not advocating the over-regulation of the Playa. Resort to RPGs should be purely voluntary.wedeliver wrote:[..... the fucker went to a lot of effort to have an art car with 150 decible booming megabass.... it is burningman after all and do you really want to miss the sunrise??
I applaud all those who go to the effort to bring something unique to the Playa. But even finely wrought art cars with superior sound systems can cease to be "gifts" when they patrol the camping areas at 4 a.m. booming high-decible sounds to no discernible audience.
It's the dudes who just dont know when to quit that bother me. When is it time to quit? When the only person at the camp or on your art car is the DJ or driver. Feel free to troll the deep playa to find someone you can impress with that rocking sound system, but geeeze, let the other "artists" get at least 3 hours of sleep. They may have some really cool gift to give the Playa that needs a few hours sleep to pull off.
But, I digress and certainly don't want to start the umpteenth "sounds-issues" thread.
