Burning Man 2014 Theme: The 19th Century

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?

Burning Man 2014 Theme: The 19th Century

Postby lemur » Tue Dec 04, 2012 8:26 am

As California, and the west coast in general.. slips ever more closely to living in the 19th century it seems fitting that the theme for 2014 is The 19th Century.

With the anti pasteurization movement, the anti vaccine movement, the "raw food" movement, the "paleo diet" and the whole vegan crusade we will be ushering in an age of pre-scientific wonderment!

But dont be dismayed!

Theme camps will be well prepared! Theyll have plenty of beds (for their paying customers)

Image

The Official Black Rock City garnishment will be there, too.. it might look a bit different though..

Image

And while eating and drinking all of that unpasteurized uncooked food may cause the deaths of many..(with the tuberculosis ridden bodies infecting the 21st century fools who'll clean up the mess) those who dont die will be glad to know that with a bit of homeopathy we can be cured, too!!

Image

Isnt being "natural" wonderful?!

thanks larry!! ..for recognizing this issue that is so important to me.. us anti pasteurization, anti vaccine anti cooked food people finally have the spotlight we deserved.

Nah. It's a joke, and it's about a year old. Welcome to ePlaya, though! :)

If you can only find one source on the internet, that source must be true!

We did Green Man in 2007, I think that Blue Man would be cool for 2014.

It was kind of weird to see the first reply being from two days ago, but finding out that topic was from December 2012.
