Radical Inclusion? Heh

Postby Gorillex » Tue Feb 21, 2012 10:42 am

BM Incorporated is a BUSINESS.

7 million in payroll last year.

Oh pulling the last 10,000 tickets to give to whoever BM Incorporated thinks is cool.

Brand protection.

7 million in payroll last year.

Radical inclusion, if you can afford it.

7 million in payroll last year.

Coke. Pepsi. Burning Man.

This argument


Bah. It's older than dirt, or dust, if you prefer...

You get what you pay for. If it were all volunteer labor to put the thing together, it would be a mess... Putting together the burn is a full-time job for many people.

Who do you expect the first corporate sponsor for BM to be?

Postby Gorillex » Tue Feb 21, 2012 11:27 am

This BRAND is being built up like few we have ever seen. The money this BUSINESS makes is incredible.

7 million in payroll last year.

Only a short matter of time before BM INCORPORATED picks a corporate sponsor for this event. Which corporate sponsor do you think will try to embody the Burner "spirit" that BM INC sells you on?

BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HAHAHHAAAA

The Op is just so fucking jealous that someone else thought of it first! What ever happened to being happy for someone who gets to pay the bills with a job they love?
Im wayyyyy cool with what-the-fuck-ever they make a year.As long as we can still go out there have a awesome time and not have to worry about all the logistics of JOTS/Electrical/roads/safety/perimeter...blah the fucking blah etc....paper work crap.




I heard the word Google is taken too, just in case you were wondering.

I've friends that have gone to Burning Man in years past. Won't go now because Bmorg started requiring tickets. Whatever.I don't care if you get there by jet or by hitch hiking. I don't care if you have a huge RV or sleep on the bare ground. I just care that you participate. :wink:
