Wild And Unlikely Theme Guesses

Caravansary - This year we will create a caravansary that occupies the crossroads of a dreamland: a bazaar of the bizarre wherein treasures of every sort, from every land and age, flow in and out to be flaunted, lost, exploited and discovered. This is not a tourist destination, but a home for travelers who come here bearing gifts. Amid the twisting and the turnings of its souk, participants will come upon an inexhaustible array of teeming goods and unexpected services. Anyone may pose as 'merchant' here, and anyone may play a 'customer', but nothing in this strange emporium shall have a purchase price — no quid, no pro, no quo — no trade at all will be allowed in this ambiguous arcade. According to a rule of desert hospitality, the only thing of value in this 'marketplace' will be one's interaction with a fellow human being.

2014 is CHAOS

The trash fence will be the new esplanade. All sound camps will be in the center pointing at each other.
People are encouraged to rely on the rest of their camp for everything.
No organized roads & street signs will be randomly generated.
No gate, make your own path. Placement is first come-first serve.
There will be one Porto Potty.
No ice sales, only Atomic Fire Balls sugar free gummy bears.
Ok, two Porto Potty's.
The Man is made entirely out of fireworks and glitter which will be built/destroyed daily.
All clothing & art will be made of feathers.
Water trucks are outfitted with leaf blowers instead of water sprayers.
All vehicles must go a minimum of 20 MPH.
No one will be allowed to be illuminated while in motion at night.
LEOs will stop & ticket anyone without illegal drugs.
Dub Step is out, calliope music is in.
No population cap & tickets will be free.
A certain District Court Judge will be the mayor of "Bondage Drag Queen Village" & lead a parade each day.
-And yes, cats will be sleeping with dogs.
10 principals to be replaced with 1, “Wing it, the Playa provides”.
In your wildest dreams you can not imagine the marvelous SURPRISES that await YOU.

MOOP PARTY

A rumored temple design proposes to collect hair donations which they will use to construct a giant hairball in and on the playa surface.

It would be all secured together with Aqua Net and make a hell of a burn.

Potlatch. It will be "Potlatch". Might as well study up for it.

Potlatch (n.) - a ceremonial feast of the American Indians of the northwest coast marked by the host's lavish distribution of gifts or sometimes destruction of property to demonstrate wealth and generosity with the expectation of eventual reciprocation.
