Theme Predictions for 2013

Cargo Cult - Who is John Frum? He is known to us by many names, this Visitor from Elsewhere, dispenser of endless abundance and wielder of mysterious technologies: John Frum, Quetzalcoatl, Osiris, "Bob." His cargo is splendid, his generosity boundless, his motives beyond our understanding. But across the ages and around the world, the stories all agree: one day he will return, bearing great gifts. Our theme this year asks three related questions; who is John Frum, where is he really from, and where, on spaceship Earth, are we all going?

I heard the Egress is just outside Point One... But for your safety
they collect your ticket stubs & clip all wrist bands before letting you go see it... :evil:

And then you also get a BLM Ranger as a escort... :twisted:

That's so thoughtful.

What kind of zoo exhibit would you like to see on the playa? Maybe a tourist trap?

The 2011 Playa Gift Exchange.
Me & Sis picked up the lumber in Clackamas, drove it to Stumptown and slapped it together.

Playa Gift Exchange A.jpg


Playa Gift Exchange B.jpg


It was with Camp Lazy Evil People, 8:30 & H.
A basket of schwag (mostly glossy porn mags) was placed on a shelf at the rear with the trip plate right under your feet.
"Look! PORN! I think I'll walk in and get some!"
Snap!
"Well, at least I have something to do..."

One girl, who didn't have a traveling companion to release her, put on a "self-love" show while she waited for her freedom...

Aye. Constant fake drug busts, lascivious pat-downs, mock trials (with song & dance numbers) and an inordinate number of people wanting to camp on Forty-Something Broad Street.

Though I'd be chillin' on 7:00 and K-Hole. For hours longer than actually desired.
