Dear Eric

I would jump in here and tell them their kegs will be ok, but this is your thread, and out of deep respect for you I will not.

How does BRB desire their articles to change the event/participants? Are their bins of article expectation? Who decides? Inquiring minds would like to know!

Dear Eric
Is it actually possible to prevent East Coasters to stop making inane earthquake remarks? Can you, in your deep wisdom find a way to show them how lazy and stupid those comments are? Or do we hear that shit forever?

You're on the playa maybe 10 days. If stainless could corrode in 10 days out there, we'd all be dead.

Dear Eric
Has Piss Clear Black Rock Weekly published the slang term "mani-festy" for ticket hunters who have spent extensive time at music festivals?

Translation: Did I just invent a term that could get me published, or is my brain trying to trick me into thinking that some dried out piece of argot is hot, fresh slang?

Your question disappoints me. No true man of style would ever base their wardrobe on "nature". Wool coats in the summer, stilettos on the beach, shorts and leg warmers during mosquito infestations. Don't be weak.

a) No we have not.
b) Too late, we've already gone to press.
c) yes, or no. I'd use my Magic 8 Ball, but he's at work.

I have already forgotten it, because my brain, though magnificent, is rather self-focused. I do tend to only pay attention to the important things, like myself. You are, however, free to PM me a reminder of your bit next July when we are closer to going to press.

It means they have absolutely nothing of value to add to the conversation, but insist that they be recognized as part of it - they are implying that a post is undeserving of a response by giving it a response. Basically it's the act of a two-year old interrupting adults having a conversation.

Eric, Would it be OK if I totally whiffed on all responsibility and attended next year's burn as a tourist? No hauling stupid art. No ambitious gifting. Only self-serving volunteer work. In other words, 'enjoy my vacation'.

Yes.
You are absolved of responsibility at the Burn for as long as you would like. If you never feel like picking those responsibilities up again then they'll either get done by someone else, or will turn out to not have needed to be done in the first place.
