Donald Trump has reached the level of the real President of the USA [14 Feb 2016|02:33pm]

Donald Trump has reached the level of the real President of the USA.

I can see just now that Trump has reached the level of the real President of the USA. His strength of a lion, his speed of a jaguar and his long sight of an eagle let him raise the USA to an absolutely new level – the level of civilization.

The cooperation with Russia as the most important friend of the USA will help the world discover existence of our land, the planet in the new dimension.

I think that the way Trump has chosen is a real historic one, being very important for our times and for the future generations.

Crwodfunding call [22 Jul 2013|04:07pm]

Greetings fellow burners -
These guys are 3 days away from the Kickstarter deadline, and (as of this moment) collected pledges for ~8K out of 12.
Let's flex our muscle and help them.

The Cradle of "Mir" is a 36 feet tall pyramid housing a 1:3 scale model of the space station "Mir". Help us bring it to the Playa!

The Cradle of Mir is a massive art installation by a group of artists from Russia for Burning Man 2013. It is a giant pyramid with a wooden model of the Soviet space station inside.

Paul Addis... [06 Nov 2012|06:56pm]

The gent who legendarily pre-torched the Man in 2007, Paul Addis, has died from throwing himself in front of a BART train.

I'm sad for his family and loved ones.

Questions, questions, questions! [30 Aug 2012|12:53pm]

Hi everyone.

After many years of wanting to go, and getting as far as getting tickets last year (then having to cancel so we could afford to get married instead), we're finally in a place where it looks like we'll be going home for the first time next year, and I couldn't be more excited! (I know it's crazy-far in advance to start a lot of planning, but we'll need time to save for the flights and RV hire.)

I'd love any advice anyone can pass on with regards to any/all of the following please:

- RV hire: pitfalls, best location to hire from, benefits of having one you might not have already thought of.

- Food: for someone who doesn't know US food at all it would be handy to know what are good long life foods? What would work well on the Playa?

- Stuff: given we're going to have to cram everything into a 50-pound or less weight allowance for our flight, what are the things we absolutely mustn't cut out, and what can we leave at home?

- any other general advice on attending the burn from internationally.

Disclaimer: I've read pretty much all the FAQ on the Burning Man website, and whilst it's got lots of generalised-but-useful info, I'd really like to hear personal tips/experiences etc.

Thanks so much!

PORTAGE to the desert! [13 Aug 2012|05:09am]

The Brûleurs de Montreal Burners are nearing completion of "PORTAGE", their sculpture for this year's C.O.R.E. Project.

Later this month at BRC, there will be a ring of thirty-five sculptures around The Man. This world-spanning project is called C.O.R.E. -- the Circle Of Regional Effigies. Contributed by Burning Man communities around the globe, these sculptures will be displayed during the festival, then burned in a single massive conflagration on Thursday 30th August.

Montreal's artwork consists of two wooden figures carrying a giant canoe, over twenty feet long and nearly as tall -- representing the spirit of multi-cultural collaboration that makes Montreal such a creative, vibrant place to live.

Our sculpture is nearly finished, but we need your participation to help us bring PORTAGE to the desert. It's a big undertaking and we'd appreciate any donation you can make.

Watch our video and donate here:

Et merci beaucoup!

Seeking Ride from SoCal [13 Jul 2012|09:21am]

Hi community! I'm looking for a ride to the Burn from southern California, San Diego preferred. My departure and return dates are flexible. It's me and two bins. I have cash for gas, a somewhat rusty but functional knowledge of manual transmissions, and a love of road trips that I think qualifies me a pretty good co pilot. You can contact me here or at my LJ name at gmail dot com.

Shady Asylum is returning to the Playa! [08 Jun 2012|12:07am]

For the first time since 2007, Shady Asylum, Black Rock City's "Central Park," will be back on the playa!

We've launched a Kickstarter campaign to help raise funds for this ambitious project, it takes a lot of moolah to make it happen:
  • 1,700+ square feet of live sod
  • 1,500+ gallons of water to keep the sod alive
  • 5,000+ square feet of muslin to help keep the sod root system hydrated and viable
  • Gas and vehicle to transport all these (heavy!) supplies to/from Reno
Please check it out, donate if you have the desire and means, and share the link with friends!


Hope to see you there! Shady Asylum will be located inside theme camp "Gitmo Shade."

David Best back on the Playa Building the Temple Of Juno [16 May 2012|09:05pm]

Our fundraising campaign is going live starting now, beginning with this new kickstarter:

Please pass the word. it's only 45 days long. We're hoping that it'll reach even those who aren't able to go this year, but who may have been touched by the temple in previous years and want to help make it happen again.


I am sure you all know how much David has effected all of us with his Temples though out the years, so if you can please pledge. Even if it is just $20, every little bit will help! If he doesn't get the full amount of pledges in 42 days he gets nothing from any of the pledges already made.

Love and Hugs

PS please pass this on!!

Trying to help a friend [27 Mar 2012|07:43am]

[ mood | hopeful ]

I'm hoping to help a friend of mine who's step-dad was unable to get a ticket to this year's event. He is not part of this group, or even on LJ, so I told him I was ask around to see if anyone might have an extra ticket they are looking to sell. I realize that tickets are scarce this year but it never hurts to ask. Thanks! :-)

DS or DS lite (want to buy) [06 Dec 2011|11:36am]

[ mood | sleepy ]

We are hunting for a nice used Nintendo DS or DSlite [with power cord(s) & games & ?] for our 7y/o. He's just asked for one for Xmas. So if you have one OR know someone who does, my betterhalf said we'll pay "better then what Gamestop's gonna pay you for them." She's hoping my connectedness will help this idea come to be as she was just @ a Gamestop's and offered to pay this lady more (in cash right there & then) and she couldn't wrap her head around it - the lady asked if she'd get store credit too. (slaps my own forehead) so yeah. What do you say? Can you help us out?
