Here's 2011's Gay Epic 'Burning Man' Adventure: VIDEO


Here's the best  Burning Man video we've seen this year so far, maybe ever, featuring videographer Vincent Rommelaere and his "Glam Cocks" Zac Rich and Tim Duggan.

He writes: "Watch what happens as three Burning Man virgins travel halfway around the world to take on the world's most epic festival."

Think of it as a Priscilla, Queen of the Desert-style adventure, only Alice Springs is Black Rock City in the Nevada Desert with the number of performers in the thousands. If you've never been to Burning Man, this will offer you a great taste of what it's like.

  10. Am I missing something? This is just a bunch of affluent white people who decide to go out into the middle of the desert, wear ridiculous clothing, act like idiots, and take drugs for days on end. It's pathetic.

  11. I went for the third time 2 weeks ago, and as usual, I had a blast. It's nice to be able to be yourself, and be accepted for who you are. I am not an affluent white person. KD, yes, you ARE missing something. Before you judge, I suggest you experience it first. It is life changing.

  12. KD- you are totally missing the whole point. First off, there is a complete mix of people at BM... hippies, engineers, students, parents (with kids), etc. The whole point is to remove yourself from the default world... and pour energy into creativity, exploration and sharing experiences with others.

    This is a good story to explain further... but I'd recommend not calling something pathetic until you understand it. http://www.inc.com/articles/201103/why-ted-and-burning-man-are-similar.html

  13. I still don't get what exactly they are getting together to celebrate. It looks more like an excuse to get away from the "real world" for awhile and party a bit, which I don't have a problem with at all. It all looks like fun, though mainly for those in their 20s & 30s. I do like they weird vehicles and generally light-hearted atmosphere I saw in the video. I guess that should be obvious since I just spent 17+ minutes watching someone else's vacation video. :-)

  14. Topless girls, bare asses . . . why wasn't this flagged NSFW?????!!!

  15. So hard to explain, but the art, art cars, the random discovery, the utter challenge of living out in the desert for a week, being without cell phone or computer for a week, the accepting attitude of Black Rock City... and the new friends I made. I live in Manhattan... I needed a break from the default world.

    My return left me more inspired, engaged, excited than I have been in a long time. For each person it is different, but usually very positive.

  16. I've always felt like I SHOULD want to go to Burning Man, but when I watch stuff like this, I can't stop thinking things like, "I hope they packed enough water. They're going to get heatstroke. Someone's going to poke an eye out. Is that fire really safe?" If I were ever going to do it, the time has passed since I evidently turned into my mother.

  17. Definitely on my list of things to do before I die. There is great authenticity in this beautifully filmed event. As a child of the 1960's it does my heart good to see another generation embracing the joy of life and all it's creativity.

  18. wish I've done it, never have, probably won't...but one never knows :)

  19. Missing the playa! Every time I see it, I'm inspired. The art - and the way we can treat one another with goodwill. Thanks for sharing.

  20. Wow, the music they put in here is terrible corporate garbage. Totally at odds with the underground musical culture of Burning Man.

    Posted by: DMH | Sep 19, 2011 9:54:51 PM

  21. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. You get such a great sense of their adventure. Well done!

    Posted by: GMoney | Sep 19, 2011 10:28:47 PM

  22. ugh. the hate. the judgment. the leaden analysis. try to celebrate life. if not, keep it to yourself.
    brilliant video.
