i think it's important to note that i love the OOOOONTZ. i really do, i used to get made fun of, called names for my musical tastes, and now that it's mainstream, i find the whole "scene" pretty interesting, from a sociological standpoint...
i'm pretty old to be a raver, i'm 49, but, Disco has been around as long as i have, and EDM is TECHNO, people, even though eminem claims nobody listens to it anymore.
my hope is for Balance...
in the past few years, as the wave of "Rave" popularity rolled over and around us, the playa has become a focal point, a proving ground for DJ's and producers.
we are Important in that manner, believe me, EVERY motherfucking DJ worth his salt wants to say he's played some big stage at Burning Man, it gives them instant street cred.
this chum in the water also draws the sharks.
i know who they are, and where they swim, and as a lifeguard of sorts, i only want to make sure that they do not attempt to eat the event, in many ways, large and small.
the LSC (large scale sound) need to respect these boundaries, and NOT ALLOW DEFAULTIA BUSINESS onto the playa...pretend it's a party for you and your friends, not how can we pump up the new talent, or where can we not so secretly place mounds of product that have been "donated" to us..
i will name no names, you know who you are.
keep that shit outta Black Rock, it does not belong on the dust.
and try to do something other than pills and nitrous all week and for god's sake, GO OUT AND VISIT THE REST OF THE FUCKING CITY, dont just flutter between 10 and 2 every goddamn night.
am i shitting on the rave camps? No...i'm warning you, my friends and comrades in sub-woofers, that you must check yourselves before you wreck ourselves...
it's not a fucking dirt rave, it's a fucking ART PICNIC w Music and dancing.
participation is not shuffling from one superstar dj's set to the next....that is Coach- Hell-a
THIS IS BURNING MAN
so act accordingly.
thank you, i will get off of my 120 BPM soapbox.
one more thing.....TRAP sucks worse than dubstep....that is all
