  1. "Burning Man" is a dated hetero hippy concept.

  2. The black rock desert is beautiful.

  3. Jewelry for Men is more beautiful.

  4. You know I can honestly say I have zero interest in ever going to Burning Man. Why does it have to be in a hot desert? Why not some place cool and pleasant. Maybe some mountains and a lake? I don't do well in heat.

  6. That's pretty neat. Photos of Burning Man always remind me of Tatooine in Star Wars. Not just because it's in the middle of the desert, but also because of the shapes of the structures and everything. It's almost like Tatooine come to life.

  7. If you're genuinely interested in attending a burn, but the environment is daunting, check out the regional network of burns that happen across the country. None of them are to the scale of Burning Man, but they offer a taste of the culture in often a much more hospitable environment.

    And trust me, Burning Man isn't "a dated hippy hetero concept."

    It's one of the queerest places I've ever been. And it's not all about love and peace and hippie shenanigans. It is about radical inclusion and radical self-expression and radical self-reliance. The embracing of which creates some pretty amazing interactions and opportunities for personal challenge and growth.

  10. And bowel movements :-) :-) :-)

  11. So, it's basically a freak show. Enjoy. Personal challenge and growth experiences packaged as an event are always suspect. You just have to "embrace." Does all this enlightenment last the ride home?

  12. Thanks goodness the drone was small, otherwise it could have been a little scary.

  13. Loved this.

  14. The REALLY cool thing about Burning Man is the kinds of bitchy little queens posting crap they don't know anything about here are the kinds of people you WON'T find there.

    If given the option of hanging with people who dismiss people who are different as "freaks", and hanging with "freaks", I'll pick the "freaks" every time.

  15. The great thing about Burning Man is that if you don't like it, you don't have to go.

  16. As the great Sam Axe said, "Bunch of bitchy little queens." Burning Man is the bomb.

  17. The Winklevoss twins attended this year's Burning Man.

    Does anything more really need to be said?

  18. No to hate, but in Santa Fe, NM we have been doing a burning man going on 90 years. It's called Zozobra. Google it.

  19. @Kurtal, and drugs. Don't forget a lot of drugs. Have fun polluting your brain and body.

  20. It is hard to believe, but Burning Man was even bigger and better than ever. I got to shoot a real powerful gasoline-powered flamethrower at the Flamethrower Shooting Gallery, played many insane games including a pedal-powered bumper car race, rode inside of a giant gay sheep mutant vehicle (entered through its a ladder up its anus followed by a slide through its intestines) and many other large animal mutant vehicles, on a palm-tree covered island art car, watched my friend get fried playing Dance Dance Immolation, and saw by far the world's most impressive collection of art. After a week of no money, no cell phones, no internet, no advertising, and purely open and giving people, it is a bit challenging to return to the default world. However, as happens every year post-Burning Man, I now see the world through a new perspective and I find I treat all people better and appreciate the important aspects of life much more.

  21. Burning Man has become "the Man" notice the line of people waiting to get on the ride? Oh it's not a ride....

  22. BM has evolved over the years as the rules and regulations have piled up. It's now more like the joke "you can't be a non-conformist unless you drink coffee". The flip side is that all of these festivals suffer the no-true-Scotsman editorial.

  23. I fail to see how someone making negative remarks about an event known for drugs, physical discomfort, and foul weather is petty, but making sweeping unfounded condemnations of the South is OK.

    I like the idea of burning man, but the physical reality of it seems like camping in the worst place you could pick, and sharing the campsite with ten thousand noisy strangers who are up all night.
