I was earth wind and fire for Hallowe'en one year. Well, I was the fire part- I tried to get an earth and a wind together but there were no takers. So I was the fire of the trio and it was great. I'll be bringing fire to the playa.

Celebrity Playa combo with chips

Post by XS » Tue Mar 21, 2006 10:35 am

Yes, I'd like the ChickenFish sandwich, with a cup of Chowder, with a bag of chips and all that. Put it on my tab....

...Wow! What a beautiful starlit sky.

Marginalization

Post by syndetic » Tue Jun 13, 2006 1:23 am

Yeah, but if acceptance and an anything-goes attitude is part of the Burning Man spirit, why should celebrities or those who are attracted to them be treated differently? If someone is curious about celebrities, it's no big deal. To marginalize him or her would truly run counter to Burning Man's attitude of inclusion.

Earth Wind & Fire - ALL of the band 'in toto' as it were, could time travel at will.

They've benn BIG Harry Potter fans for some time now.

The Lyric refers to watching Muggles go by oblivious to the other worlds sharing the same space or just one slight shift away.

Yeah, fuck me if Disco isn't doing it for me lately. here I still Have Black Flag, JFA, Agnostic Front, Decry, 7 Seconds, the Descendents, Circle Jerks and all that good fun on Vinyl and dripping from my pours with the usual Sabbath, Zeppelin, Maiden mainvein tap running strong and low and behold now DISCO is doing it for me! I feared it would happen some day. My 20 month old son can say "Boogie Ooogie Woogie" as in "We're going to get down, Boogie oogie woogie."

Whoops, forgot to quote Sparkletart from a previous post:
-
Yeah, I fucking love disco.
What do you think about this lyric though:
"Future roads for you to pass
Love to watch your mug past " </i>

Post by LaurenAlixandra » Fri Jun 30, 2006 1:21 am

I am totally going to be a movie star, and then, someday you'll say to your kids- "this one time at burning man . . ." but by then I will have won an oscar and everyone will suspect your stories and think " YOU SENIAL OLD MAN!!!!!"

but I tell you, this one time at burning man . . . god- it was so fucking hot!

What about a special celebrity petting zoo?

You could actually watch and touch real live celebrities.

Wild ones would be in special pens that look just like their real environments.

Tame celebrities could be in petting pens.

We'd need a special celebrity hunter safari crew to go out and trap them or shoot darts in them and bring them back to BM in special cages......and a cool theme song....and a documentary of how we do it....an a commentator with a deep voice talking about how special celebrities are for the media environment and about how all celebrities are released unharmed after BM and........

Why not?

It would be massively awesome if you could get some actual celebs to go along with this as some performance art. Set up an enclosure to look like a stage set; watch them act, preen, and throw tantrums; go on the talk show circuit to pimp their latest flick...

Failing that, some regular burners to pose as celebs, real or fake.

[quote="Ranger Genius"]Sweet, juicy jesus! [/quote]

Jesus Juice? Could it be that a certain historical figure is returning not out of a desire to provide salvation to all his loyal followers, but out of a petty jealousy directed towards Lil Jon and the commercial succes of Crunk Juice?

The only celebrities I want at Buringman are the kind that don't get it or think it sucks, so they can get on all these crappy Hollywood shows and bad mouth Burningman. The last thing I want is Paris Hilton or some other Hollywood shallow whore saying good things about Burningman.

The more I here Burningman bad mouth in common and Hollywood culture, the happier I am.
