If you have to go to a catered party to "rough it" then you've got no place helping people OR entering New Jersey.okay I'll bite, explain , exactly, what is "catered" about Burning Man, 'cause I swore my ticket said:

What a catered party at Burning Man may look like:

(It was for a commercial, but you get the idea.)

/and if you recognize the 2x4 lumber motif, you're right it's the Uchronia kids from 2006.

Stinkyy: If you don't do drugs, is it worth going out there?  o_O
In that same vein, will hippie topless babes (the best kind) shun my magic dragon?


I've personally never done any drug but ethanol in various delicious, brewed, pressed and/or single-malted varieties, and I damn sure wouldn't on playa because when I meet a gorgeous, naked, Asian girl who was a martial-arts expert, neuro-trauma surgeon, rock guitarist with a keen interest in particle physics ( I did)   I want to know that really happened and I didn;t trip out while watching <i> Buckaroo Banzai</I>

I reread neurmancer the other month, and it struck me that in the intervening years, a TV tuned to a dead channel has gone from this:

listentothelion.typepad.com

To this:

media.cox.com

Ironically, the color went from dead grey to gorgeous sky blue in just a few decades.

Fark Rye For Many Whores: wearing furry purple pants while tripping on 2CT7 and convulsing to dubstep

I hate to be all onionbelt here but I had to look that up. Cyberpunk has been predicting "designer drugs" for as long as I've been alive but now they're here and I don't know what 2CT7NBOH/NBOM/etc are.

Not obscure.

That's certainly one way of doing it, though I've seen that list pared down to just "champagne" for some people.

Sparkle ponies should not be counted.


Corralled, counted and branded is how I prefer to handle them.

prjindigo: Only thing anybody that goes to burning man has ever done from scratch is open a scab...

If you have to go to a catered party to "rough it" then you've got no place helping people OR entering New Jersey.


How clever of you to discern the character and survival experience of 30,000 different people you've never met.  Have you even been to Burning Man?
