Performance art by a committed artist.

I think the art world would improve dramatically if we could get all performance "artists" to attempt the same.

No, no, Wild Thins are Wheat Thins that are locally sourced and shipped directly to your grocer the day they're picked.

It's a registered Burning Man Regional event. I about to attend one on Thursday that has 2700 attendees. I very rarely see hipsters at these events.

The worst thing is that this occurred directly in front of over a thousand people. I know that Fark hates everything Burning Man, even though there are quite a few Farkers that go, but a lot of people just got emotionally scarred by watching someone literally die in a fire.

I thought these things were all about expressing yourselves. What, it's not just an eternal party?

Nothing personal, Hardin. But I can just see thousands of young people standing around in the desert, after spending a hundreds of dollars to make the trip, biatching about their student loans and how they'll never get them paid off. Then posting the awesomeness of the guy burning himself up on their Facebook with their new iDevice.

Hehe, indeed.  I kind of wish it actually worked that way.  Participate at smaller regionals to get a ticket to The big burn.

Essentially, yes, it's an eternal party.  They have parties to "decompress" from bigger parties, and parties to raise funds in order to pay to go to the next party.  So they'll have a decomp party to get over this and to prepare for BM in August.  Then another decomp party after that to prepare for the next regional event.  It is indeed and endless cycle.  There are plenty of folks in DFW that spend thousands of dollars and countless hours of their lives just to go "camping" is they like to call it.

As a guy who is repacking my tough boxes from Reclaimation to go to Transformus in a few days, I can attest to that.  For some, spending money on a car or boat is their thing.  For me, I spend money on sound, lights, new camping gear, and bar supplies.  I've received multiple art grants for fire art, and I'm working on a massive arcade machine with 4 foot tall joysticks and foot wide action buttons with a 40 foot screen that has fire effects for wins.

The regionals are independent from Burning Man, each with their own board of directors.  Once they meet a certain criteria for financial preparedness and transparency, and adhere to the 10 principles of Burning Man, they are sanctioned and sometimes the events can get a better deal on liability insurance, which is very expensive for this very reason.

Burning Man doesn't get any money from the regionals.  You should go to one, it's fun as long as you don't decide to jump in the effigy fire.
