2015 Theme Announced

Carnival Of Mirrors asks three essential questions: within our media-saturated world, where products and people, consumption and communion morph into an endlessly diverting spectacle, who is the trickster, who is being tricked, and how might we discover who we really are?

I like that one a lot too. It's the work of artist Simone Held (find it here), she's got a lot of great stuff on her DeviantArt profile.

[size=85]2015 theme Street names were announced today at BM org.:
Arcade
Ballyhoo
Carny
Donniker
Ersatz (not really a carny term)
Freak Show
Geek
Hanky Pank
Illusion
Jackpot
Kook (not really a carny term)
Laughing Sal (a little too San Fran. specific)

Not bad overall but I wouldn't want a BRC address on "Donniker". A Donniker or "Dunnie" is a toilet. A "Donniker Joint" in carny terms is a sh*try location.
I think a better "D" Street name might be:

"Ducat (sometimes 'ducket') — A free game ticket or other free pass to something, dispensed either as an enticement to play or as a gift to cool down a disgruntled player. Give an unhappy man a ducat to the girl show and his attitude may improve … especially when the girl show operator, seeing the ducat, points the customer out for a little special attention from the girls. The agent who gave out the ducat will get a bill from the girl show for 'services rendered.' Sometimes also used to refer to money."

And I wonder why they didn't choose this carny term for the "L" Street name?:

'Larry — Describes something broken or damaged, be it merchandise or anything worn out, or even a person who's a loser (however affable) - "He's just a larry."'

When he lights his streetlamp, it is as if he brought one more star to life, or one flower.
When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.
That is a beautiful occupation.

It's all real now.

Like the names. I also like the addition of a medical outpost between temple and man.
