Greetings And Salutations All!!

Post by JediDale » Sun Jul 29, 2007 5:46 pm

I am very happy to announce that I will be able to make it to this very special burn! the last 365 presented strong obstacles to overcome, and I had to use all my resources and abilities in The Force to overcome them. This has been a painful and daunting task. My reward has been my companion and Padiwan, Purple Cricket, for whom it has been a greatly enjoyable adventure !!
Thank You Most Graciously those of you who assisted me in my first Burn in 05!! To those of you reading this who are virgin burners, I strongly suggest that you follow the advice of those who came before, and ask long time veteran Burners for information and assistance. Now, let me say that as long as you are not going to BM with the "Whats in it for me attitude" you will naturally attract those who will assist you. Like begets like.

The Force is not a cookie. Perhaps you are confused my dear! The things and people I focus The Force on depend on the circumstance and the individual and what The Force tells me of its will through intuition. PM me and I will examine your situation carefully!

Ah, the thought that the first Burning Man may be the last is not as harsh a thought as one might conceive. Actually, I hear the end of the world may have a lot to do with Vodka and fire. Avast!

My luck runs deep around here, it seems. What a refreshing relief. Even my chosen name is free. I didn't even think to check it before I signed up with the other name longobord (which is related, but not what people call me).

Hopefully recovery will be forthwith so I can actually get out and talk nuts and bolts with other burners in the bay area. It's tough knowing there's so much going on around me but I can't participate due to mobility issues. But I'm getting better!

Too Bad I Can't Make the REAL Playa This Year :)

Post by WebUrbanist » Thu Aug 02, 2007 4:52 pm

Well, since I can't make it to this year's Burn I thought I'd start working my way through the forums :) I've been Burning since 2002, mostly with Bluehouse and Shady (out of Seattle). I'm just now graduating with a Master's of Architecture degree and am working with a group of people on a website collecting amazing street art from around the world!

Hey. Joe here. Never been to Burning Man. Will be going this year on my own. Just started to process of figuring out everything I need to do. I've gotten as far as Leave No Trace and cover your tent stakes so no one breaks a toe. The rest I look forward to picking up. This emoticon is exactly what I look like. :shock:

Hello everyone : )

My name is Claire. Never been to Burning Man. I can't go this year :( but I'm getting ahead for next year, because I've been meaning to go for too long. Too much talk and no action. Maybe that's silly, but hey, why the hell not?

Who am I? Good question. A college student in Los Angeles, English major, aspiring journalist/poet/starving artist. Mainly hippie, with doses of goth, anarchist punk, and poet. Crazy-passionate about music, working on learning guitar, and I sing. Addicted to dark chocolate, good conversation, vegetarian/vegan cooking, beaches, oceans, forests, and long-haired men (come on, you know you love 'em).

I first heard about Burning Man from two random hippie dudes while camping at Mammoth a few years ago, followed by BM stories from several other people that I met at concerts. I'd like to go to BM with a group next year, since I'm still kind of figuring out what this is all about.

Namaste!

Hello all-
I live in Cedarville which is 1 1/2 hours from BRC. I love this time of year because we get to watch everyone making the trek into the vast Nevada Desert. This will be my 3rd time at Burning Man, and I seriously cannot wait. The first time I went was with my parents...... and let me tell ya, you have to have some pretty open minded parents if you're going to share your Burning Man experience with them.

I can't F*ing WAIT!!! YEAH!!!!

The Force Is Strong With JellyFish!
Thanks for the elevated status of "Full Cosmonaut" If anyone wants to meet a REALLY KEWL Burner, I strongly recommend seeking out JellyFish at LabWerks in Terminal City!! (3:00 keyhole or therebouts)

By way of introduction, I thought it would be noteworthy to mention that I was one of the first 500 people to see the Star Wars Premiere in Hollywood, May 25th, 1977. So this is my 30th year of following The Force!!

Which day do you fly in? There is a group staying in Reno at the Sands (check out the thread Layover In Reno). You can certainly catch a ride from there, but if you are ready to leave when I pick up a passanger, maybe we can make room in our RV. As long as you don't mind being surrounded by about 1000 Barbies.

If the barbies don't sound disturbing, he didn't mention they insist on duct taping your hands and feet too.
Otherwise, nice people to ride with.

Getting a ride with Dr Pyro

Post by JediDale » Tue Aug 07, 2007 12:23 pm

Stephany,
I met Dr Pyro briefly at BM 05. I strongly endorse him as a good guy burner,
and if you REALLY wanted to get a ride with him, bring a Barbie doll or better yet dress like one!! I honestly believe you would have a great time with a truly bizarre yet safe Burner!! Here's to you, Dr Pyro!! (JediDale does his flying flaming double staff moves)!!

What JediDale failed to mention is that most of my Barbies are naked. So if you dress like one of my Barbies....

We are passing through Reno Sunday morning, probably around 9:30 or so, for early arrival; will stop either at the Little Nugget for breakfast or Nixon for an Indian taco, and be on the playa by 2.
