Theme Predictions for 2013

Cargo Cult - Who is John Frum? He is known to us by many names, this Visitor from Elsewhere, dispenser of endless abundance and wielder of mysterious technologies: John Frum, Quetzalcoatl, Osiris, "Bob." His cargo is splendid, his generosity boundless, his motives beyond our understanding. But across the ages and around the world, the stories all agree: one day he will return, bearing great gifts. Our theme this year asks three related questions; who is John Frum, where is he really from, and where, on spaceship Earth, are we all going?

That sounds amazing...

At 1/4" of depth, that's 15.6 million cubic feet of water. That weighs in at 973.8 million pounds.

If attendance is 60,000 next year, we're each responsible for 16,000 lbs of water, or just shy of 2,000 gallons per person. (At a guess, and from poking around... the roving hippie baths contain 3,000 gallons.)

it's going to be back to basics.
In line with our plans for an Amish camp (but I didn't want a Barn what the hell am i going to do with a barn ffs?) all technology invented after 1799 will be banned - cars and rv's parked in a greatly expanded D lot and walk in camping everywhere. People will be expected to carry flaming torches at night and cook on an open fire.
Sound camps will be replaced by line dancing on the 2 o clock side and a good old fashioned ho-down on the 10 side. anyone found using modern technology will be incarcerated in the man and burnt as a witch on saturday. The temple will be a huge barn. everybody will have to have arms and legs suitably covered and the sexes will be segregated (unless married).

OK. I need help. I tried to find it myself. Really I did. Can you please direct me to a list of past themes? (I hope it's not right in front of my face.)

Oh, my theme suggestion. "Ashes to ashes. Dust to dust". I'm feeling like a simpleton today.

I am holding out for "Timeless/Time Travel" You can travel to any time in space or age and that time would be in the here and now. There is no future.. We are just passing through a series of "now's". Is there a past? Or is the past the memories of a series of now's?
