Good thing fake cards aren't available everywhere, Hell there was a greenlight here recently saying how a pharmacist was even selling them.

Burning Man has become exactly what it was created to evade.

/the quickest way to kill an artist is by giving them a lot of money. Figuratively and sometimes literally.

Burning Man has become gentrified? I'm shocked, SHOCKED! Okay, maybe not that shocked.

"We are weighing the gravity of what that does," Goodell said. "And we know that challenges the concept of 'radical inclusion.'"

Burning Man is just a thing. They (principals investing) bought a monster ranch ´sky ranch´ years ago. Just money colliding with greed.
But while that is somewhat the uber-truth folks there have a great festival then clean up (after a bit) and continue on.
If you like the desert and culture it is a blast. If you hate it well you will not. Breathing dirt is hard.

Sounds like they privatized and monetized a Rainbow Gathering and bought land in the desert because it's cheap.

I went once, right around 2000 (maybe 01) at the time it was awesome. I loved it, and had a total blast. But i was like 19.

If I went now.... well, I can't really conceive of why that would happen. But I'm sure I'd be complaining loudly about the dust.

I haven't been since like 2013 or so... but my first time out, I was putting together a car port as a shade structure and the guy camping next to me just randomly walked up, recognized it as a Costco canopy and helped me put it up. Saved me the trouble of taking out the directions and a useful extra pair of hands to fight the wind while setting up. He was there with his retiree dad. They had been going together for several years. There's stuff there for different ages. Your schedule and the activities you hit are different. I mean, even if you aren't older but have hit the fest a few times, your schedule and activities are different. My first time out, I was hitting every party in sight. By the third time, I was taking a lot of "days off" where I just chilled around camp, drinking beer with my friends. Even if you don't hit a party on a particular day, you are still at the burn if you lounge around your base camp.

I went there a few times in the early 90's. Yes, it was so much better, before all the rich people in their $200,000 motorhomes invaded. Corporate jets didn't fly into near by airports and the passengers didn't ride in a limo to the desert.

The Burningman organization needs to decide soon so east coast attendees can start their journey.

I can't even believe they still have that. It's just a place for rich idiots to try to experience Woodstock. Which it can never be. It is so irrelevant they should just be merciful and end it.

The last year I went was the first year they put up a fence.   It was a blast in the 90's when it was still relatively obscure.  I only bought a ticket that last time, before then we'd just drive around the greeters and set up a camp.  Granted, it was total vehicle anarchy and people did get hurt - one guy was run over in his tent, another was riding on a car hood and fell under it (a shrooming doctor helped him).  They had a drive-by shooting range and one of the targets was Barney, so guns were prevalent too.  I wouldn't want to be in a crowd that large without being vaccinated, they should require it.

Shouldn't that be Burning Person? Who are we to assume its gender?
 
2021-04-22 4:10:11 PM  
Burning Man could could not care less about folks being vaccinated. I am will to bet the BLM is proposing not issuing the permit unless Burning Man requires it. The liability the BLM could incur would be monumental. You could change the name from Black Rock City to Tort Claim City.

It's in the Black Rock Desert -- Federal land.

Something tells me that not many Burners will complain about getting a free shot.

This is true.  In '91 or '92 a small plane landed and flipped over.  Everyone was OK, but they had to haul it out of there on a truck.
