Watch out Feathers.

Post by organizedchaos » Fri Aug 09, 2013 7:41 pm

Just purchased a megaphone on Craigslist for $30. Planning on using it specifically to get in peoples faces about the stupid fucking feathers on their costume/ mohawk / earings / whatever the fuck else they think is so special. The disrespect these people have for the people who build and tear down our city is unbelievable to me. So if you're planning on wearing some, see you out there assholes. Get ready to be humiliated.

And yea, fuck yer day.
The answer is never no.

I fear that you will be the one that will be the asshole. Burning Man has officially removed feathers from it's list of things that you shouldn't bring to the playa. I'll say that again, just so you didn't miss it: Feathers ARE ALLOWED on the playa!!

So you had better find a more appropriate use for that ridiculous megaphone you just wasted $30.00 on.

That list hasn't been updated. Check the Jack Rabbit Speaks for updated information. Also there is a thread announcing this here on eplaya. http://eplaya.burningman.org/viewtopic.php?f=65&t=65252

I stand corrected - thank you for pointing me in the right direction. It upsets me to see people blatantly disregarding the hard work put into this city by mooping and not respecting the rules. I'll turn my attention to moop because I would say that I feel exactly the same about seeing cigarette butts / people peeing on the playa. Disgusting and a nice word that I have said in the past seems to go unnoticed. The bags of moop I picked up last year are unacceptable.

Feathers are one thing shit that will blatantly moop is another.

There will be a huge overlap between these things.

I totally agree with you when it comes to moop; I just think you could find a better way to address it.

And personally, I would find a feather accidentally out of place much less egregious than someone buying a bike from Walmart, unpacking it and assembling it on playa and leaving all of the packaging, box, instructions, etc. blowing in the wind. (I actually experienced the aftermath of this. Wish I would have seen who done it.) Now that would be worthy of the bullhorn.

Better than a bull horn.. I've posted this a few years ago..

I don't get around so good.. Walk with two canes or other devices.. I had a very tall trike.. It was hard for me to get on and off of it.. I come up on this camp.. It had all manner of trash all over the front of the camp.. I stopped and struggled to get off my trike and get my canes out.. Never said a word.. Then with a bag, started picking up there trash. Only took about ten seconds and that whole camp was out front picking up.. A little shame go's a long way.

Where is MOOP_Czar? You'd have a scheming partner in a heartbeat.
When he lights his streetlamp, it is as if he brought one more star to life, or one flower.
When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.
That is a beautiful occupation.
