Dear Eric,

What does "smh" mean? Smack my head? So much hate?

Inquiring minds want to know

It means that people are either too inarticulate or too incompetent to write out a complete coherent sentence, or don't have access to this "smilie": :roll:

Now that I know about it, no. If it had actually meant anything to you, you would have sought me out to deliver the precious gift, even if I did not physically appear at the Meet 'n Greet (I'm sure I was present in the drunken dreams of a few people). I shall sigh heavily, and expect a better performance next year.

Dear Eric
I am finding I am really not impressed with the video's of TTITD, most of them seem to slick, posed, clean.
Does anybody do video mash ups? Would love to see a video mash of Embrace's heads exploding from the Nuclear Dream.

Dear Eric,

I've been looking for a compilation of DJ sets from Burning Man available for streaming online. A number from various sound camps have appeared on soundcloud, for example, DJ Three published his Robot Heart set five days ago.

Is anyone tracking stuff / updating a thread with sets from this year? What's the best way to hunt down sets performed at or inspired by the 2014 burn?

Dear Eric;

My first burn has left me dazed and confused. I spent the entire week with a girl and liked it, we even held hands at one point, cooties be damned!

I even booby-punched Anti-M at the meet n greet and not 20 minutes later she was practically naked!

:?

I fear my gaycard could be in jepardy if word gets out here in Indiana vis-a-vis my goings on at TTITD.

My question naturally then is this:

As a one year veteran is it too early to be acting like a 2nd year know-it-all to everyone who asks me about burningman?

It appears as if all questions have been answered and everything is known at this time. Is that your perception as well?

I'm sure you'd be welcomed back into the 'normal' fold. and some wag would proclaim you 'cured' of your gayness. Then someone would begin asking when you were gonna fall in with the Mopar crowd.

While I know more than most people, not even I know everything (I know - I find it hard to believe as well). If someone says that everything is known, they most certainly know nothing.

I do not believe this thread is entitled "Ask Tin Halo". If the question had been worthy of an answer, it would have been answered*.



*or if I had noticed it was there at any point in the last 3 months. Insert blush here.

Indeed. 'tis a malady, to be sure (like shingles). A tic that never quite goes away, although the symptoms can be dramatically lessened by gtfoasap and immersion in new environs.

The curse of having been birthed into this realm, at that location, was ultimately the undoing of my classically-oriented belief in an angry sky being.

Bowling shirts are one of those rare items that are always both "in" and "out" of style, much like Hawaiian shirts. It all depends on how the person wears the shirt - if it looks like they're "trying too hard", it is out. If it looks natural on them, it is in.

This task complete, I shall put on my cowboy shirt with embroidered flowers & run errands.

Eric: explain how people are bodily forced to Reno

Post by PlayaPatrol » Fri Jun 05, 2015 3:01 pm

Eric: Please explain your statement how people are kidnapped by Burning Man staff and forced against their will to Reno from the gate when someone doesn't have a ticket? Do the police arrest all ten of them and bring them to Reno police station? On what charges and under what legal statue? Or is this a fantasy invention scare tactic? Also provide actual evidence and stats that people standing in Empire or Gerlach are arrested for loitering.
Anyone taking offence at anything in my posts - tough. It's only an internet forum. Stop being overly sensitive. you are shallow and banal. Eplayans who spend hours a day posting need to make in person friends and mentally masturbate less.

No one is kidnapped and taken to Reno, but you are certainly not allowed entry. You are trespassed by the Sheriff and sent away, I suppose instead of saying "your sent to Reno" it should be "Your sent to Winnemucca, Reno, or Cedarville, but you cant stay here..." (depending on whatever route you take)

YMMV though, so have fun.

Please, I beg of you - show up at the Gate without a ticket in a vehicle full of people. Just let us know when you're going to do it so we can video it. Your understanding of the facts and reality is right up there with the Duggar family.

Your long term old troll game is boring. I suggest you redecorate your basement instead.
