I feel like the Burning Man event long ago lost any philosophical ethos it may have had in the 90s, but I say that not really knowing anything about it apart from the people that are SOOOO INTO IT BRO.

And hell yeah, we did Burning Man the prior weekend was Renwick. We'd just finished lunch and were wondering what to do next. I checked my Instagram and a friend had posted about the BM exhibit and 20 minutes later, we were floating around the Renwick and really enjoying it. I think it closes very soon so go check it out ASAP.

while I've never done a burn and yes it's not the same as the 90s
it's amazing that a city of 60K people can just appear in the desert and be gone a few weeks later
no government involvment
and other than your entrance fee...supposed to be a no cash zone...bartertown (just like road warrior...with out all the violence)

I regret not doing it once when I lived on the west coast
yes burners are a little over the top about it...but there really is no comparison to anything else


look at the photo in this article where you can drag the before and after

Went to that on Labor Day. Show closes in two stages, if the first isn't already done, it will be imminently. Great exhibit. The vehicles were amazing.

The only thing worse than Burning Man is the incessant post Burning Man discussion about how impactful it was on the participants...

I pretty much put Burning Man into the same category as Crossfit. Positive and cool in theory, but it all goes away in a shitstorm when you have to be around the people who do it.

I agree with this. The enthusiasts of both seem like just awful people.

I almost brought up crossfit...but the venn diagram doesn't exist of these two groups of people intersecting

IMO crossfiters are waaay more annoying

Look, like anybody would, I did put my dong through the hole but it turns out that spider isn't fed very often and unpleasantness followed.

Wrong on both accounts.

When you go out to the desert and wear next to nothing, you want to look good.

And because you don't live near burning man, you don't have the same exposure.  They're both awful, if not the same people...

pot news goes here.

I am enjoying this whole . . . weed was evil, weed is the devil, you can't smoke or even have that in here our establishment, and did we mention it's evil and satan and horrible and you better starting paying $11 for a beer, to make up for how horrible it is.

until now . . . when you can make a buck off it.

fuck off, America.

i've been meaning to ask you this, walkies: why are you so angry?  anything we can do to help?

seems like the majority of your posts are "this thing sucks, everything sucks, there's not point to anything, look how absurd we are".  it does give you a brand, i suppose.
