I'm tempted to refer everyone to BAAAAAHs and them deal with them. I have too many friends involved with either Comfort and Joy or Celestial Bodies to do that to them.

Oops here come the regular price tix for sale. Nice to see the presale & LdV tix holders getting reamed.

Yeah, that insurance policy is going to cost a bunch of people a bunch of money. Bet they don't try to game the system like that again.

I think I said it before, but I'm hoping that when I return I will see many people left holding the Presale/Da Vinci-ticket bag out of some greed/pride that wouldn't permit them to sell below "face value" before the market bottomed out.

I hope it's a huuuuge fiasco for people. Like not even being able to sell the ticket at all. Or regretting that they spent even more to purchase those "cheaper tickets" to replace the tickets they already had.

I know BM doesn't want to be exclusive but it seems a contradiction to invite people to fly in from points all over the map to a desert where Radical Self Reliance means taking care of your own self.
Either you bring all your own shit, or you fly in and expect to be provided for. One or the motherfucking other.
I'd love to do nothing but pack a suitcase and hop on a plane. I do exactly that when I go to Kauai.

Page Two Rant :
BURNERS, (collectively), spend millions of hours getting ready to bring their gifts to the BRC. Some work on this all year. (Some have worked their entire lives to bring it… true dat.) Earn Your Burn and Be Somebody.
Many BURNERS have no patience for ill-prepared tourists, nor for free-loaders that contribute nothing. It runs up against the grain of a general rule that helps to make the Burn what it is:
Radical Hospitality. (Fucking freeloaders abuse this rule.)
To Earn Your Burn: You Must Contribute. If nothing else: Take a bag and head down the street picking-up moop. Real Burners will thank you for the bringing of your gift. Or you could bring the supplies, go to the toilets and clean-up for whomever is going to use it next. (Hey, some-body’s bound to thank-you for that one.) (Rightly so!)
What I’m saying to you people that come to the event with empty hands and a mouth full of much obliged:
Earn Your Burn. And Be Somebody.

disclaimer: This post should be in the 'Drunk Posting ' thread.

* Climbing up on the soapbox* Speaking for many eplayans, I find it hard to be patient and compassionate towards last minute additions to the fold. Normally there would be genuine useful answers interspersed with snark and cruelty. Many of the burners are already on the road or working their asses off in the heat and dust. I'm trying to remember my New Year's resolution, ' Be a nicer person'. This resolution was gifted to me by a friend because he couldn't do it. I won't be discouraging or judgemental. I won't laugh at the ill informed and lazy or uneducated. I also won't waste my time replying to those questions that are easily answered with a few minutes of searching. I'm drinking a beer when I should be packing to leave in 13 hours. I'm ready but my soul is scarred. Abba can't come. Her canadian mail is being held for 31 days for no apparent reason. Come visit me at 5:25 on H in the blue and green shade structure.

It's a week before Burning Man and you decided it's the perfect time to revive a thread that's been dead for two months? I don't think "oi" quite covers this.

Let us trick your family members who don't want to go to Burning Man into going to Burning Man. No resentment could possibly be gained from that one... I know, we'll play on the fact that they're lonely. That should do the trick!
