well I don't have the time to dice and slice everyone's post's like you and some other's do.
And as creative as your cut and paste is it proves nothing when you take thing out of context.
Who's dress or costume did I berate? it was a general observation compared to your folks statements that BEFORE I went read up on, so here's listing to you guys.

Sheelpe is not a new term, might be for the playa, but what the heck you guys are making up your own words anyway, so why would the snark be upset with that????

How did I think it was different than it was? I read the information given out by BM on their site, something that a good portion of the population I doubt did,

the argument of it's a 'Festival" or not I got from here, some of you call it one, some don't.
I'm not a festival goer, I have no opinion it was a question.
Burning Man originated from my beach. Had I not traveled I may have been in the original group, because we were doing pit fires on the SF beaches,before the man in 85'.

Remember it was the old farts who started it, but ageism is as old as time.

oh, you might have known Larry?

and this is how?

Because you made bonfires on the same beach?

(I don't know why this old fart has my goat, but I am enjoying it,regardless, for now)

I want him to show us where he read that it is a costume party as stated by the Bmorg, that's the one I really don't get.

a) thanks for rubbing in the fact I'm unemployed due to no fault of my own.

b) it's called a "memory"; as in: I retain things that I read. Like your posts. Unlike you I seem to remember what other people have said, and I can use this technology to go find it (hint: bottom of each post, a little button that says "profile". Under profile "find all posts". Real complex)

c) read your original posts that I quoted from. Nothing was taken out of context. I didn't have to.

d) Officially Bored Of You.

unemployed? that's a state of mind, I've never been unemployed, I work for myself, can quit myself or be fired by myself, that IS my fault.

I'm glad I bore you and you don't know how to interpret what I write, maybe it wasn't for you.

To answer you question Roberto, it's to draw out the lame responses like your and ignore them.

And gee Eric I may not catch up to you in your playa editing knowledge, but yes you did take things I said out of context, you took out lines from paragraphs or whole posts. So that why it's called out of context, you only snip out what you want, editor.

Actually there is one redemptive feature about the word "sheeple." The people who use it are, in fact, every bit as intellectually lazy, if not more, than the people whom they apply it, too. Nothing like dismissing "herds" of people you've never even talked to. If there were a god, they'd choke on their tongues. Oh, and the fact that it's inherently such a juvenile concept just makes this particular instance particularly delicious.

oh sorry, Teardropper yes that was the floor of my OFFICE, it would be considered an art trailer, on the playa, the mutant vehicle I drive daily that pulls it on occasion is a 32 Chevy on a 85 GMC 4x4 frame i think you can see it on line

So that fact that I've been doing that shit which is where I speak from, for decades, gets me respect from those who know me and my work.
I need not Eric's, but I know he'd fuckin give it up if he knew.
Wasting time on blogs arguing semantics with people who do this as part of their work? occupation? what ever, ain't me, computers are a nice tool but only one and they are very limited, when they work right.

A table saw is very simple, but can in the right hands, do more than a computer, I apologize if some of you don't like my words, they're off the cuff, I don't always re-read, I'm not turning it in for a grade. If a fuckin chat room for christ'sake, Back to the wood, enough plastic for a bit.

you 73' what?

I mentioned 85' in relation to what? when I was in SF for a time.
I've lived there on and off at time between many other places.
When I was born there there was only one other building, or two bigger than the capitol bldg. dome I could see from Bernal Hgts.

But as you're guessing, i rocked @ the Filmore before it closed in 71'

I shouldn't assume you are talking to me but as I have a moment before I need to go work on the fence line, damn dogs made a few holes.

I would no more give you off the cuff advice for wood working than I would you trying to explain BM.
So many variables.
where's the house?
what's the wood?,
how old?,
what the finished you plan on using?
what are your budget constraints?

If you're painting none of this really matters and I should refer you to one of my brothers who used to paint Victorians in the city.
I don't work on houses, I have, but I hate it, unless they're a hundred years old.

It's the floors I'm concerned about.
Duroseal has been recommended.
I have generally used a polyurethane gym finish.

Floors are standard pine flooring over a slab, probably '50 or '60s.

Planning to do the walls in white epoxy ester finish topcoat, a translucent high gloss.

Well, yes I'm aware my assumption was incorrect, that's why I was asking for some clarification. Phrases like lol, wtf, sheeple, that sort of thing, combined with lack of punctuation tends to be a hallmark of the 25 and younger crowd. Apparently you do mind my asking your age.

@gyre, I don't mess with pine too much, it's barely a wood.
The 36 species you saw above are all hard woods in their natural colors.
Don't know if you have Penatrol, it's one I use for pre-soak finish, especially for a floor. Wood on a slab, :shock: not good, they buckling? Moisture? where is the house, SF? I'm not hip to your location, Location: ΦάÏ
