Meat loaf (the artist) where did his name came from?

I seem to remember an interview where he admitted he got the nickname at school during the gymlessons for beeing the last at everything.

BMIR manages frequently to loose the left channel? Only during music, mics are stereo panned.

The commercials for camps are always entertaining but the content in between is about the worst radio I've ever heard. No wonder almost no one on the playa listens to it!

It feels like it resembles half of the conversations in the city.
Part drunk, part on the loose part serious part desperate any state as can be found at home.

Some DJs play music, some only one track, some near all PSAs or Promos

Have not seen/heard in recent years the BMIR stream fails (some short times) while the video stream goes uninterrupted :D
And this is not even the first time, it happens more then once a day.

Get the feeling the Streamguys are the bottleneck for BMIR this time. 150 clients and large lock-in range

Playa quire live

Singing all together live. I have nothing with this, just gives me the feeling they are having fun together.

Alternated with Burners Without Borders about Hurricane Harley relief.

I've heard cool shit on BMIR in the past, so now and then I click on and check it.
God damn they SUCK!! Couldn't they have just rerun the audio of old Mister Roger's Neighborhood episodes... or the sound of a porta-potty pump out truck... or a generator with no muffler... or...

The ambient sounds of BRC is indeed what we are missing most time on the video stream.

No I have not been in BRC in the most absolute immediacy, as you know, I am a birgin virgin an ember :D

However, ever read a book? ever been to a movie? the experience of immediacy deeper then only spectating is online present and possible. The 9 hour time shift with my default world surely adds some jet legs.

I immersed the First Mate in pictures, videos, and hands-on work on my MV... I did all that myself back in the '90s even.
Nope, you have to actually go there.

The truth is a lot of it is boring as fuck.
Streets aren't all colorful wonderlands of art and interactive camps, most are just rows of refugee housing. There are cool people and total dickheads.
Sometimes someone nearby has a cheap LOUD lawnmower-engine generator, or plays really loud and really shitty music all the time. Sometimes it's cold with the wind blowing so much dirt you can't see. And it does it all damn day.
Sometimes you're dealing with someone who drank too much... or not enough.
Random fuckwads crash into your camp and fuck stuff up, or steal stuff.
A lot of the really cool things like big art installations are crowded and you wait in long lines to get in just like Disneyland.
You wait in long, long lines out in the sun for ice at Arctica.

It's a fun trip, but videos and photos don't really put you there.

The right side won at BMIR

No, the right channel produces music left is silent. The defective cable/mute-button has not been replaced ?
