Now might be a good time to study the failures of Hitler and the Nazi party.

And if I had the power to fuck it up for everyone, glad to have scared you, we're playing Halloween now.
Actually, you sound like you're back-pedalling because you know you are behaving like a spoiled kid.

I will rant and threaten and bellyache TIL MY FUCKING HEART'S CONTENT.
Well, no you won't. You'll do it until you get removed, and of course you won't understand why that's happening either... again, just like a spoiled kid.

I'm with the others, I started out with some sympathy for your situation, but your real problem is now obvious.
You aren't winning any friends with the approach you're taking, and if that makes you say "Well great, fuck all of you!" then you should re-examine why you're here.

There are PERFORMERS TOO in this mix. ANd YOU'RE KILLING US.
what, cuz it aint mobile? Dude, if your performance is gonna suffer cuz it aint mobile perhaps you ought to channel your anger into developing a more compelling performance. As we say in the design world 'if it looks good in black and white it will look good in color'.

Iffin one wants to see what your about one can get on one's bike and go check it out.

Tantrum

Post by Wind_Borne » Mon Aug 02, 2004 2:53 pm

OK, we all (or at least, most of us) recognize that the increasing awareness and popularity of the Burn has some downsides.

During the 19th century utopian movement it became clear that the maximum size of a democratic utopian community was about 1,800 people. Above that size the need for services, policing and such resulted in the hierarchical and bureaucratic cities we all know today.

That BRC can even aspire to act as a utopian city of 28,000 is due partly to the will of the participants, and partly to its transient nature (we can all get along for a week, can't we?). But lets face it, the utopia of BRC 2004 is rather different from the utopia of BRC 2000; not to mention the utopia of BRC 1996.

So as the Burn has grown it has sadly gained more scrutiny from without and more bureaucracy from within. There's a continuum that has spontaneity at one end and population at the other. So no more camps afire on Sunday night. No more kite sailing on the Playa. No more skeet shooting propane bottles. Too many frat boys. Like all frontiers, BRC was founded by risk takers, and is now settled by the risk averse.

That is the way of things. The choice each person must make is whether or not today's Burn is still an invigorating experience. If so, great! If not, act to improve it or start something new!

Finally to my point. Technomania Circus get a grip and deal. The last time I threw a tantrum like yours was on the kitchen floor when I was two. My mother's only response was to pour a saucepan of cold water on my head. That did the trick. Don't make us pour cold water on your head!

Make the choice... If you can offer your performance on a stationary stage, we will all appreciate it. If not, sit out this year and constructively advocate or facilitate change for next year. Or start your own thing altogether.

I think its time for one of us to hurl the word 'nazi' so this thread can die a quick death.

Uh, Badger, I've already tried that. Judging by all the follow-up posts it failed miserably.

Yeah but Tanc, you didn't really hurl it, you just used it. I think what Badger (and the rest of us) is looking for is something like this...

OK you commodifiers,
Settlers of the tamed expanse
Life is good when it's easy
Meds till you can't hear DrT's rants
If a vehicle is purpose built
I's kinda possessed by the one true burn
The transition is now
But the tail end of what once was
is still worth havin a cow.

July 15th I believe was the deadline, as announced on the BM website and the Jackrabbit Speaks newsletter.
