there was a definite presense of "ragers" ie.. kids who just showed up following the DJ's
and didn't do anything to contribute aside from ending up in the med tent and having diarehha on the open playa after their molly kicks in

practically the total banning of sound lineups up to say 7 days before the event will do wonders and perhaps that commitment
to not even announce (like the old days) any named acts would do nicely and keep that herd away.

that being said, skrillex at the trash fence was the best act this year by far. </>

LOL and Sigh.

I remember my first year in 2005 I was hanging with my buddy at center camp late at night having a mocha and these rave kids come in all cute and excited, "Hey guys! Do you know where any specific big parties are at? We don't feel like wandering anymore"
Legit question at the time. We guided them towards 2 and 10:00. They were stoked they had a direction.
I mean, is there any missing that nowadays?
Prediction: MORE sound camps and Robot Hearts.

$10 anti-moop deposit for each bike brought in the gate-with the exception of persons bringing in 10 or more loaner bikes. Get a chit upon exit for credit on next years ticket-one chit per ticket limit. (So no collecting 40 abandoned bikes for hope of cashing in on a free ticket.)

Wouldn't be suprised if feathers were banned again... feathers were MOOPed EVERYWHERE.

Prediction: Due to state/site dependent memory I will figure out where the hell I ended up Saturday afternoon.

I predict proxy drones that allow people to attend burningman from their smartphones- the drones will look like Will Smith on a Segway, complete with cameras, microphones, motor ability and communication ability. The drones will not require tickets, and in 2016 some people will even prefer this to actually being there- by 2017 most people will be on the burner drone project and not even realize that what they are experiencing through their smartphone is actually a simulation of burningman occuring in the cloud

I've never understood the whole "line in the sand" thing. Always, going back to when G.H.W. Bush said it in the early 90s, all I could think was how easy lines in the sand would be to erase and redraw...

I was actually referencing danger ranger and his quote about crossing an imaginary line in the dust, and how all things were different on the other side of it.

I believe hes standing in front of gate rd.

Its a short clip from the movie SPARK.
