We Started The Fire - a song and video about Burning Man

Post by DrYes » Tue Jul 09, 2019 1:13 pm

I rewrote Billy Joel's, "We Didn't Start The Fire" to be all about Burning Man and its history up until now, roughly, had someone who can sing record it, and made a video out of it with the help of many, many people's photos and video. Enjoy!

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me

Hi Brandon, welcome to eplaya. I hope you take a few minutes and introduce yourself in the Greeter's Station. Getting to Burning Man and the Black Rock Desert is very attainable. Read up in the links below. Join your local regional group. Make some connections. Remember, if you really want to get there, you can do it.
