Get BONED!

Postby A-RockLeFrench » Thu May 12, 2016 6:00 pm

Do you Love Rock & Roll?. Do you love gigantic dead animals?. Do you love to PARTY?

Are you concerned about the frightening shortage of Rock & Roll music/giant dead animals/parties in Black Rock City every year? These are problems that I personally have been acutely aware of these last few years. Though it seems like rock may be dead in BRC and the appreciation of dead things is on the decline, I am here to offer you one last bit of hope in this dismal, EDM-dominated world.

I am here, to introduce to you, the mythical creature that will be bringing the Rock to Black Rock City, the creature that cannot wait to take you for a ride:

The Bonerpillar

BONER!.jpg

That's right folks! 2016 is the year it is really fucking happening. A project gestating for years, we have conceptualized, plotted and schemed.. It is finally time for us to birth this magical beast into our world and share it with you all at our annual desert campout 2016!

Buildy things and technical shit will be discussed here. Pictures and exciting art update things will be posted in this thread!

Like The Bonerpillar on Facebook and follow us on Instagram!


Stay tuned for more exciting updates as we move into boner-production mode!



Holy Shit!

That looks ridiculously awesome! I never really thought of rock or dead things being in any kind of decline, but this looks like a very welcome addition.

The only Rock music I've ever heard out there is whatever I play. Mostly during setup, I will blast my truck stereo. By the time the event is over, I'm starved for some metal.

This is a wonderful idea! And, the MV looks bad ass!

I get so damn sick of the Techno I want to pull my teeth out. We have a No Techno rule on the drive out and the drive home.

Are you playing all genre of rock?

Oh yeah! Or most at least... Blues, funk and soul will be featured as well. We will plan some genre specific days/nights/art tours as we get closer to the burn.

I might just have to start pumping out your love child right now. I get so tired of techno/dubstep/EDM I could scream (and sometimes do out of sheer frustration) so I will be longingly hoping to see the Bonerpillar on my street. :)

Well holy shit is it time for an update!

Boringly enough the last 3 weeks or so have been mainly administrative. Not much fabrication recently though The Bonerpillar now is now legally a thing and the Indiegogo campaign goes live at midnight..

Bus ran great when we drove it 15 miles to the workshop yesterday. Man, it sure felt pretty good to drive it down the highway after banging my head against it for years 8)

Alright now I gotta go I'm running out of time ! have to get to work!

Stay tuned for exciting updates...,,,!

We all have some old bone we're attached to. (Don't we?) I have a leg bone from my beloved emu, Elizabeth. Someday I'll decorate it and make a wand or talking stick.

If anyone has any bones they're not attached to (legally acquired of course) and wants to drop em in the mail they will find a home on The Bonerpillar... I'll pay shipping!

In other news we are way behind schedule and the Indiegogo thing is't exactly raking it in like we had hoped. Apparently this whole issue with Rock and Roll and dead animals isn't much of a concern to your average sparkle pony. Or maybe we approached the whole thing wrong.

But fuck those guys! And fuck my sleep schedule too The Bonerpillar will not be stopped. Fabrication is happening. We took the windshield out today. Superstructure almost complete. Paint soon.

Paint!

We shot 3 gallons of DTM water-acrylic through a HPLV sprayer and didn't have quite enough to finish the frame rails. Will probably finish it off with rattle-cans. Tomorrow we will work on prepping the inside for paint. This weekend the deck will go up and we will start on the plywood exoskeleton.

Yay! I went to your indiegogo and made a donation. Mostly because I want you to chase the neon-skull-in-a-top-hat off my street once in a while :lol: (omg, that thing is cool and it's fun to see it go by but one night it stalled out ten feet from my tent :shock: and sat there for hours with the music running on endless repeat :shock: :shock: :shock: Welcome to BRC :lol: :lol: :lol: ) but also because I want one of your cool stickers. 8) 8) 8) Or lots of your cool stickers!

One thing that bugs me about indiegogo is that if you want, for example, a sticker offered for a $6 donation, then you have to donate $6. If you donate, for example, $50, you can't get a sticker. Unless you know a guy and can hit him up when he's not expecting it. :lol:

Oh man...this so dope!!

We have DJ's coming but I would LOVE to break it up with live music or YOU! Your art car is sick!

How do you feel about docking at our camp for awhile? You see bro...we need some dead animals and we NEED to rock out. Tell me when you want to roll by and WHITE BRONCO will be ready to host! Dinner and refreshment on us!

I'm dead serious. We need to make this happen. I'm at 7:15 and C. You just give me an approx time and a day.

-Clutch or Billtron.
I don't care, just as long as you call me.
If I say I'm going to do it, I'll do it. :coffee:
