Brainy Bar 2017 - Dance @ 5:15!

Post by trilobyte » Wed Apr 05, 2017 1:47 pm

While we knew as we were leaving the playa that we were coming back, and that we'd had a lot of fun building and bringing the Brainy Bar, we wanted to take our time and wait until we'd formed up our 2017 plans before posting.

We had so much fun in 2016 that it seems like I hardly took any pictures last year. The only one I managed to take of the front of the camp was really early in the morning, while most people were still asleep...

Image

Our camp is currently full and we're not looking for any new members at this time, but we wanted to tell you about what we're planning and invite you to come visit if you're in the neighborhood. Here's how the Brainy Bar works... each day we'll have one featured boozy drink, one featured non-alcoholic beverage (because we've all got friends who may not drink alcohol for one reason or another, and we want them to feel welcome and refreshed), and one topic of conversation (chosen on the day by the campmate running the bar). The topics can be anything (well, maybe anything except politics), and tend to be on the fun and silly side. The Brainy Bar space is a nice, shaded, loungey little spot with places to sit and relax, and has some of our favorite art on display.

Occasionally in the mornings we'll bake and serve fresh cinnamon rolls, so if you're in the neighborhood on your way to or from one of the neighborhood coffee spots it might be worth stopping by. Plans are in the works for some kind of afternoon or evening foody thing, I'll post more about that once we nail down the details.

I'm really excited to announce that we'll be bringing back FANCY SHMANCY S'MORES! We ha a blast with this in 2015 (though the weather made it impossible for us to do this as often as we wanted), and also at another event off-playa in 2016... in 2017 we're bringing it back to the playa! We take the american campfire classic and turn it on its ear using artisanal cookies and marshmallows as well as posh chocolates, apply fire, and the results are yum!!!

Of course, we'll also be bringing back our awesome rubber stamp bar. We'll retire a couple of the older stamps, and make room for a bunch of new ones as well as re-ink the stamp pads....

Image

I am also planning on hosting three Virtual Black Rock Desert Project workshops to talk about building a next generation virtual playa that people can visit and play in year-round (that is, when they're not at Burning Man on the real one). Days, times, and specifics will be posted as we get closer to the event.

We have been placed, and will be on DANCE at approximately 5:15 (somewhere between 5:00 & 5:30)

I need to visit your bar when there's something going on sometime. I really should have, being just around the corner last year.

It's been way too long since the last post.... this has been an extremely busy year for many of us outside Burning Man, and we've been working on some really fun additions!

First up, a name change! Well, we still think of ourselves as the Eridu Society... but for simplicity's sake we're changing out the name of the camp this year to be Brainy Bar.

Next, and this is old news by now, but we've been placed! You can find us this year on DANCE at approximately 5:15. Look for the Brainy sign, you can't miss us
Image

Additionally, we're building and bringing Hobby Horse (of) Course! What the fuck is that, you ask? I don't blame you, we asked ourselves the same thing. Somewhere in the depths of time, space, Europe and the internet we stumbled across.... well... this:



Wait, what? Yeah, sort of an equestrian jumping/dressage sort of thing... but with hobby horses! This girl tries to explain it..



And so does this girl...



Thinking this is just for girls? You'd be wrong...



It's weird, and it's wacky, and we think it is perfectly suited for the playa! You are of course welcome to bring your own hobby horse, but campmates are not only making a track, but hobby horses you can use as well We'll post schedules at camp, and hope you come by to either try hobby horsing for yourself, or at least to check it out and cheer people on.

Wow, that is oddly arousing.

I think I need therapy. Or booze.

On the virtual Black Rock Desert project, I'm slowly making progress on a nice dusty effect...

Image

I'm hoping to get the project to a decent milestone before the event, so I can record some video to show ppl at the workshop (I do not plan on trying to get online from the playa), or at the least print up some pictures. From there, I'd like to talk about how people could build camps, vehicles, and art installations throughout the year - aside from being a place to pre-visualize camps and projects, it could be a fun space for people to meet up throughout the year.

Any idea when (taking into account playatime) you might be holding your workshop Trilo? It sounds interesting.

The hobby horse team simply cries out for Monty Python.

BvB, once schedules are locked in (well, as locked in as a playa schedule can get) I'll post info here.

Netty58 - the Hobby Horse (of) Course project lead assures me that there will be coconut shells on hand so we can make horse sounds, Python style :)

Monday during burn week, and morning's the best approximation of a timetable anyone can give at this point :)
