Like running away to join the surrealist circus.
Give a man a match, and he'll light a fire. Show him how to build a flamethrower, and he'll be a pyro for life.

Is this the real world, or is the real world out there?

Too much.

Too much visual distraction.

Too much dust.

Too much thump, thump. thump.

Too much of mind-altering substances.

Too much sex.

Too much goodwill.

Although now when asked how much I would like of something/anything the answer is always the same.

edit for bad spellin and over punctuation

from the classic move "Its all gone Pete Tong"

Burning Man is ...

Here is another good one

Burning Man is an all you can eat buffet of experiences.

Both are accurate and work for me.

A campmate described it in a way that really resonated with me:

"Burning Man is spiritual exfoliation".

Apocalyptic refugee camp where everybody wears what the fuck they want to. Complete with rangers and leos to keep us contained.

Burning Man; I tried making sense of it, and then I realized I should be trying to make sense as to why I was even trying to make sense.
Oh yeah, this year I was totally twerping out at the fence. ~Lonesombri

I went to Vegas 2 weeks after Burning Man this year. It didn't remind me of BMan at all. It seemed the antithesis of the playa...
