2016 Celebrity Burners

Post by theCryptofishist » Fri Sep 25, 2015 7:54 pm

Every year we hear about more celebrities at the burn. Who do you think will be at next year's burn, apart from (obviously) Martha Stewart?

I live in a tiny village not far from LA.

The celebrities (many) who reside here appreciate that they can go to the market/movie theatre/pharmacy/coffeeshop without FANfare.

BRC has been the same, in gifting its residents anonymity.

PLEASE, can we preserve this?

Bernie might be preoccupied next fall. But, perhaps the Pope can attend in his stead.

I really think the participants appreciate when the recognizable public figures keep themselves disguised and walk among us. For the famous, semi-famous and self-famous, it's nice that they can see and do all that BRC has to offer and not being drooled on by burners gushing over them.

Ditching the Segways and expensive thick tire bikes and swapping them for a shitty Cranbrook would be huge! :roll:

Just want to assure everyone that this was meant as a joke thread, not anything serious. I have a mild aversion to celebrities and celebrity, but a fascination with manna involved.

Jack Black was there this year. I think if celebrities didn't walk around with their posse, they'd have a better experience.
Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.
