Hey there I'm Adam and I'm new

Postby AdamOfTheRedEarth » Mon Aug 20, 2012 12:05 pm

Hi all you cool people, I'm a first timer making the journey with my sister and her crew who have been going for 3 years. We got approved for theme camp placement this year. We are the House of Skin - Adult Playground, located at 9:45 and E I believe. We've spent a lot of time building an archway entrance to our camp and a stage for dancing, along with other cool stuff. I painted our bike rack all by myself and I think it's pretty ugly, but I'm told there is going to be a lot of dust this year so hopefully it will look better with a thick coat of alkaline 8)

I never thought I'd go to burning man, never ever never I always said. My sister has been asking me to go for 3 years now but I just never thought it would be my thing. Then again, I didn't know much about burning man other than the usual stereotypes. Once I started looking around the internet and these forums I realized there is more going on than just raves/techno music and I'm super excited to come experience it all.

We'll be serving up mimosas in the morning and other random drinks at night so come on by and hang out. I'm the 2nd tallest guy in our camp with a bandaged up index finger, see you there.

Hi Adam!

I love it that you said you're new. 40% of the city will be new, so you will have lots of company. :D

From what I've been told our theme camp will be at about the 9:45 position and on E (Edelweiss) street on the theme camp block. http://www.burningman.com/preparation/maps/12_maps/2012_BRC_063012.jpg

Or do you mean about the nature of our camp name? We will have skin care products, like sunscreen and chapstick to gift. Also, come play giant adult yahtzee, tether ball, or jump on the trampoline. Our stage has two stripper poles on it for night time fun and there's also the jellyfish dome, a DJ setup and sound system, and lots of lighting effects and some fire too. Probably not the greatest thing down there but we're a chill, diverse group of guys and girls aged twenty-something to sixty-something and we'll have couches and shade too.

Here's our "official" theme camp spiel, my sister wrote it halfheartedly, thinking we wouldn't get approved and now she wishes she'd written it better.

Come indulge in fantasies of flesh, get your skin wet with a rub down of sunscreen. Join us for morning mimosa, coffee, and yoga in the jellyfish dome, which also offers light shows at night.

This has got to be one of the oldest Palindromes going: Madam, I'm Adam. See, ignore punctuation and spaces, and it's the same backwards and forwards.
Not much prep for the event, which is kinda sideways.

Nope, some people just go straight to calling me madam. Well you guys all seem pretty cool, you should pedal on over if you get a chance. We got early arrival because some of our members are rangers and we have a theme camp so we'll be there on Saturday setting up. I hope to meet you all 8)

Hi Savannah,

That's good news since I'll likely be the only new one in my camp

I followed the link and took http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gKUy5oZsj8&feature=youtu.be from the address bar. Then did the youtube box and pasted it in. Then I cut off &feature=youtu.be leaving http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gKUy5oZsj8 and previewed. It seems to work...

you can't use "short links" - you can do what Fishy said, or the long way which is "share"/ "options"/ "long link"
