How'd the Commodification Camps get their tickets?

It sure would be a darn shame if all of the theme camps who will not be attending next year asked for placement anyway. And left big gaping holes in the playa where the principles used to be.

That would be a darn shame alright.

Are you saying your theme camp will not be in BRC 2015.. Or do you know of theme camps that are not going to TTITD..

I cackled with delight when I read this notion, and then I jumped to the next logical progression: if this happens in 2015, then Da Weasel will start charging theme camps a "registration" fee in 2016 to make sure they actually show-up and provide enough atmosphere and gifts for the Borg to commodify. (Sorta like a vehicle pass, but its not transferrable, refundable, and would be paid at the time of application. You know, to cover "costs of placement". LOL!)

So it was a great thought, Finny, but with a bad ultimate result. As soon as the BMorg figures it out, it'll cost us, the Burners. Again. :(

so they deserve special treatment and to make a profit because they're super-cool and the "producer" is a member of the org?

did the org think we and blm would not notice? (from what i read, the blm permit does not allow profit on the playa)

YEah, well, the poor fellow couldn't predict that throwing me out of the village and not even telling me would scuttle the "friendship," so it's safe to say that he's a little weak on the whole idea of predictable consequences.

These conversations, here and at other forums, may well be solving the problem of ticket scarcity. After trying to find my way there for years, I bought my first ticket in 2011, well before they sold out. Won in the lottery in 2012 and came again. BRC is a three day drive for us, so there are very few local tickets for sale. We couldn't find a ticket in 2014 even after trying every avenue. ( because I believed the bullshit about not paying over face value) Our plan has been to try again next year, but now I wonder why. To me, the non commodification is the best thing about ttitd. And who wants to give when there are so many takers? I am surly not the only board lurking burner reading these threads who is considering giving it up. (While wishing things were different)

Well that simply cannot be true, now can it? You never asked the fine denizens of Barbie Death Camp if they could secure you a ticket somehow, now did you? No you did not. So no, you didn't try "every avenue". I submit that you didn't even try most avenues. Typical lazy stoned burner.

don't give up...

don't ever give up.

what IS encouraging and gives me hope is the dialogue and conversation that is going on, and you know what?

The BMORG DOES LISTEN


just look at last year, they heard when we cried out about early sound camp line ups.

keep crying out, let your voice be heard, i'm sure there is at least ONE HORTON on the board who wants to protect our precious flower.

but don't give up.

thats not what this is about.

on election day it seems fitting that we, the community, let the powers that be know how we feel.

and, i still have faith, i know, that may seem strange, but, i've seen the Man burn through many rainstorms, i can only hope that he continues to do so.

it's really up to the BMORG now, ember is in their court.

No, not lazy. Shy maybe, and unaware that BDC was willing to share tickets with strangers. Simon, I haven't given up yet, but I am watching this, and trying to do what I can.

I think this will be the lasting tragedy of the Commodification Camp Debacle of 2014. The attitude is spreading "why shouldnt I scalp my tickets if I cant go? If I dont, the BMorg WILL!"

I really cant see a way for the BMorg to get around this. "Face value or fuck off" is becoming "Face value? Fuck off!"

I've always just bought the one ticket for myself and left the other in the pool.

Maybe I should buy two just to make sure someone else CAN get a face value ticket. :?

You might be right. Except that you won't be able to take a tax deduction for the amount over retail you pay when using from a scalper. (I mean, how is buying a ticket from a scalper helping build the BMORG's vision?)

Actually Simon, I was being sarcastic. I don't think trading blocks of tickets for 'donations' to some 'charity' so that then those tickets can be used in support of PnP camps is right at all.
