Hi everyone.
I'm posting to introduce myself and to ask a favor. I'm a student at NYU and writing a research paper/article on Burning Man for a truly fabulous class that I'm in right now. I want the article to be based on and driven by interviews with as many people as possible about their experiences at Burning Man. The article's going to explore how Burning Man fulfills the need for ritual in American society where Puritan religion has made most ritual taboo and considered 'unclean,' the idea of cathartic trangression, of sacred space, of the intersection and reversal of the sacred and the profane, and lots of other fun stuff (I'd like to say here that I'm not as big a nerd as I sound like, but that'd be a big lie). So, if anyone's interested in being interviewed via email/livejournal/AIM/however, please post a comment saying so (I'm also under a time constraint, so the sooner the better:)
Thanks so much, and much love.

P.S. Yes, this is obnoxiously X-posted.
