Burning Man used to be a glamorous destination. The real movers and shakers would fly in to have champagne dinners in the desert evening. People would dress up in their Sunday best, while celebrity chefs would prepare the most bold and expressive cuisine. The landscape was dotted with exclusive galas, and luxurious lounges lay hidden within rings of RVs.ygmir wrote:Elite plug and play camps........will they fade to myth?

Cool site! I've not seen many pictures from BM in the 90's and it's nice to click through the years and see how things have evolved.Bob wrote:http://peterman.net/burn/ensimismada wrote:Okay, I'll bite: will someone please explain this mysterious fowl to me?Captain Goddammit wrote:The Playa Chicken.
Or perhaps that's more like a persistent myth-understanding. Mr. Robert Asprin: it's not plagarism if I call it an homage.Both the inspector-people checking tickets at the gate and those people greeting you with hugs and pamphlets are called greeters. No need to distinguish, as they're all just DPW workers anyhow.

Yes, I met him and still have one of the bills. I can't spend it. It's too rare!In 2003, (I think, could have been 04) some guy in a suit gave out $2 bills. Lots of them. We calculated several thousand dollars at least, although 80K would be too high an estimate.

Within hours, he was hooked up with everything he needed, including his own tent and supplies.
in '06, i heard that during the previous burn, an RV of junkies celebrated their arrival when gates opened by shooting up as soon as they parked at their camp. they lost track of time and before they knew it, the temple had burned and it was time to leave ... even though nobody ever got around to leaving their RV even once the whole week.
in '06, to counter the growing shirtcocker threat, some burners built a pantszooka, a cannon that fired rolled pants at shirtcockers. i'm pretty sure this one is true.
i also heard in '06 that a theme camp was using a chainsaw to blend their bar drinks. not sure how exactly that supposedly worked, considering the whole oil/grease thing normally associated with chainsaws.
