stratagos: No one is stopping you from just driving to the goddam desert, subby, nor are they stopping you from organizing your own competing event, with all the logistical headaches and costs that entails. They also apparently offer discount tickets based on income.If you want to play in someone else's sandbox, you play by their rules.Quit acting like an overentitled twit if you want to be "anti-establishment"/No real desire to go to BM//Unless I was to get seven friends and set up a cube farm for a week, complete with motivational posters and staplers. Just to screw with people
bunner: Let us venture further into what is if land and look at the idea of locally made art, textiles, restoration shops, and other small scale manufacturing concerns that could be implemented in neighborhoods with almost no remaining commerce
bunner: djslowdive: Actually, these days, it does. Here's the financial report for 2011: 2011 Financial ReportThose are some very interesting numbers. I can't help but think that any given logistics and purchasing manager and a good CPA could have shaved a lot of hair off of that pig.
HideMonkey: cryinoutloud:For real? No, you're pulling my leg, right?These threads remind me of people arguing about the Grateful Dead. They were so so cool, so under the radar, then they were played out, then they were beyond your understanding, so just shut up, then they were too popular, so I don't go see them anymore, then.....well, then Garcia died. Thank god that shiat was done.But you know, Burning Man is different from all that. Because this generation isn't anything like the ones that came before, and they have all original ideas.You sound old./old
bunner: The fat is as plain as the balls on a tall dog. It what grows slowly as the telephone game of "we need" goes down the chain of "well, I got to have at LEAST *pulls number out of ass* for THAT".
stratagos: Then gee, I stand corrected. I didn't realize we had an expert among us who could tell us what it was "supposed to be about".
cryinoutloud: BarkingUnicorn: I think Burning Man jumped the shark when WiFi was added to the playa.For real? No, you're pulling my leg, right?
Tourney3p0: stratagos:Then gee, I stand corrected. I didn't realize we had an expert among us who could tell us what it was "supposed to be about".Are you aware that you're an idiot?
semiotix: abhorrent1: Do the people who go to burning man even have money?The median Burning Man attendee is probably wealthier than the median Farker.You know how if you scrub the greasepaint off of a random sampling of Juggalos at their Gathering, you come up with a lot more junior management trainees and sociology grad students than you'd expect? Burning Man is the same, except with middle managers and sociology professors.To be fair to the BM crowd (ewww) I think there's a lot less "fark the Man!" than there is "fark it, I'm 44 and I want to take mild hallucinogens and stand around naked looking at kinetic art for a weekend."Seriously, ask about it at your next faculty meeting and see how many hands go up.
stratagos: I'd call your assumption about me stupid, but I've done the same thing, so I'll just put it down the laziness
occamswrist: I liked last years Burning Man that was corporate sponsored.Burning Man brought to you by Carl's Jr!
