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?

Dust Bowl!


Watched that 2 part series on PBS about it. All the images and descriptions.. it was like being back home! From the eyewear, to the sleeping in dust covered beds to the coughing up mud... yep. Dust Bowl 2013.

Ratty, not announcing a theme until spring is the old system. It was only in recent years that they ever started announcing the next year's theme at the end of the event. Personally I like the idea of announcing it earlier too, more time for people to consider doing something theme-related.

I know the Trojan Horse has been done recently, and Dan's taking a well-deserved break from big art next year, but man a giant Trojan Cat would be hilarious...

NASA is being coy about a discovery its Curiosity rover has made. Read about it here http://news.yahoo.com/nasa-curiositys-history-changing-discovery-221110775.html. Speculation is they finally have hard evidence there is life on Mars. If true it will be the biggest news story of the year.
With that in mind,

A "Firefly/Serenity" theme? Now that would be cool!

No. I'd far prefer it to keep away those sorts of narrow, modern-media things. If he wanted a more general science fictiony theme, that's another animal. But after that what's next? Star Trek? Rocky Horror? Lady Gaga? Custer's Last Stand? The 5500 of Main Street?

Danger Ranger
Space alien technology and Kabbalistic gnosticism is going to fit in well with the theme for Burning Man 2013.
