Has anyone done a Virgin Sacrifice Camp?
I mean not in the cliche lead them to the top of the pyramid and dig out their heart, that's been done so many times before.
I mean a place where someone who is lonely and/or curious can come by and be initiated into pleasures of their choosing?

Hmh! :) yeh, that's a cool idea.. it might be quite an undertaking, but it could be like the connector hub of a constellation of camps, perhaps. I wonder if there is such a thing already in existence or sorts.. I guess it would call for at least a few ambassadors or sorts to be present.. could be FUN! Only thing coming to mind is maybe centre camp (?), but I don't remember having seen anything like this organized. It's really a great idea.. could certainly minimize/transform the existential angst and isolation that can happen out there and promote community. And of course, the kind of ridiculously good time and life-altering experiences the event is all about. I wanna hear more..

I did hatch an idea of a tumour-ridden jack-in-the-box coming out of a box made of cigarette cartons. The jack's motley would be comprised of Cancer Awareness ribbons.

Yeah, really punchy and fairly on-the-spot-putting idea. Certainly no less than La Guillotine or the Shaming Wall. But I'm squeezed financially enough as it is and I'm not entirely sure how to make the mechanism work.


I hope and fear that you might find the theme this year bottled up nicely in one work... Cure.

My last chemo session is thirty-six hours away and I've gone a whole week without feeling sick since...I've forgotten how long.

See you on the Playa! Image

How about a camp that changes its aspect depending on whether the Man's arms are down or up?
Up arms: HOPE
Down arms: FEAR

Safety camp: Simulated fire, and everyone wears skin-colored bodysuits (simulated nudity).

Ooh, I like that. And everyone wears mittens!

I like silver and clear camp. Everything in the camp has to be either silver or clear.

I was thinking along the same lines a while back of something to do. Where my mind went was to things that express hope, fear, and the future all in one picture or image. Like maybe a picture of a young couple sneaking across the border to the US or maybe a pregnant woman seeing her soldier husband off or a proud Somali couple holding their newborn or someone depositing money for a child's education at a bank in Baghdad or someone walking across the wilderness in Darfur, or someone begging in Zimbabwe, or any number of individual images that shows the entire theme all wrapped up at once and making a wall and inviting others to find such images and get together and put them all up for people to look at and think about.

Ah, so they have already decided to approve the permit:

The use of two sites would also facilitate the joint BLM/Desert Research Institute study to determine impacts to the playa surface from a single event. This study will begin in 2006.

Sorry, I posted the above in the wrong thread by accident last night. They should have been in the other thread around here somewhere about the BLM permit.

PARTICIPATION IS SOOOO EASY

Postby jimbowers@foothill.net » Wed Apr 12, 2006 9:23 am

"dougnaka - Hey all, I've been brainstorming and come up with a few ideas for art installations for the 06 burn." ----


Speaking of PARTICIPATION.. I personally have seen BRC (in the last ten consecutive years) go from 80% participants-vs-spectators all the way to BM2005 with its 20% participants level. Proof is in the walk from the esplanade to the outer circle on any given evening. As soon as you get past the first three blocks, it's just motor homes and tentsd without so much as a string of fuckin twinkle lights on the awning.....
I would LOVE to see it return to those days when, if you WERE a spectator.... people SHUNNED you... screamed NO SPECTATORS!!!! and when they allowed the playa mud baths, we even threw mud at the camera weilding yahoos!
If we do not FORCE the spectators to stay out - the participants will force the participants out.

NOTE: This year, the tribe (eyes of gawd - terrasphere etc.) is building a 2 mile long chinese dancing dragon. We're attempting to break the Guinness world record. If ANYONE would like to participate, they can build a very simple and easy to transport 10' body section from hula hoops and plastic sprinkler pipe. As of April 1st, it is over four football fields long... check out our website at

NO SPECTATORS - BE THE DRAGON !

I've been having visions of a spiral labyrinth of temple banners. Red, grey-green, fuchsia.

Alright, since we're getting deep into the construction/fabrication stage of our projects (at least I hope we are), let's talk about food art. The Crock Pot discussion got my culinary muse going.

I'm going to have it real easy this year in the kitchen because I'm only feeding two people, and we're both omnivores, so I'm letting my imagination run wild and free. Tentatively planned:

- A roast, midweek, which will be enough to feed us for at least 2-3 days. Probably tandoori lamb or maybe venison osso bucco,

- Saffron rice,

- Couscous with inclusions (thinking peas and pecans or hazelnuts),

- Fresh peach pancakes,

- BBQ salmon first night on the Playa,

- Tortilla soup,

- Stickybuns,

- Loaded giant potatoes,

- Something curry with orange chutney,

- Bell Pepper/corn/mango chutney (oohh...that would go good with the venison osso bucco),

- Walnut bread, maybe sourdough if I can keep an old dough alive,

- Strawberry shortcake,

- Onion-potato breakfast scramble,

- Hot chocolate,

- Something frittata, probably with mozzarella di bufala and/or brie, grapes and fresh herbs.

What's everyone else got planned? Image

Weird, isn't it, looking back at this post? Check out the last date we heard from fuckartdamntheman on. Think he might have been somebody we know.
