List of reasons why 2012 will be the WORST. YEAR. EVER!

Fertility 2.0 - Black Rock City is a kind of Petri dish. Theme camps cling in fertile clusters to its latticework of streets, artworks tumble out of it, like pollen on the air. These nodes of interaction mutate, grow and reproduce their kind. Burning Man communities have now escaped this capsule world: our culture in a Petri dish has effloresced - it spreads across five continents. This year's art theme contemplates the tendency of any being or living system to create abundant life.

List of reasons why 2012 will be the WORST. YEAR. EVER!

Post by Homiesinheaven » Thu Jul 12, 2012 11:02 am

-i heard from a reliable source in the inner circle that BMORG is gifting thousands of tickets to every fraternity and sorority at every single college and university across the US. WTF?

-not only did i not get the tickets i'm ENTITLED to receive but my theme camp was not placed! without my presence, BM is guaranteed to be absolutely horrible. guaranteed!

-OMG, so much DUBSTEP!

-i keep having dreams that BM is gonna be a huge outdoor mall. my dreams usually come true!

-Center Camp will be serving blood instead of coffee! ice will be frozen pee, not water!

-BM was so much better every single year before this one!


any others?

All tickets will have 1/4 inch holes punched in them.
In order to provide a hard surface, DPW is shellacking the entire closure area.
Larry Harvey will be animatronic.
At the man burn, all participants must hold hands, sway, and sing kumbaia.
GP&E to merge with heebee geebee healers.
Manditory "Five Minutes Hate" for the guy who made that video.
All participants must remove clothing and simulate (or actually engage in) sex acts when asked to by photographer.

Not this year my friend. No, not this year.
This year the Rangers will be too busy enforcing the mandatory standing for the singing of the Anthem before each burn.

I heard they're encouraging people to do the tomahawk chop and chant during the temple burn this year. Those who don't know the chant will be given laser pointers to shine on the temple so they won't be left out. WTF?
