coincedence.

Postby Simon of the Playa » Wed Oct 21, 2009 7:09 am

i just watched the directors cut the other day while working.

it is a horrifying and beautiful film.


the thing i noticed is the tone, colorwise, steel, shiny, silver...metallic

this year is the Silver Jubilee of Burning Man and hence a list from one of the popular guides to that sort of thing...

25th
Silver.
25th Anniversary Contemporary/Modern Gift:
Silver.
25th Anniversary Gemstone:
Silver, for its radiance and brilliance.

Some alternatives: Tsavorite, Green Garnet.
25th Anniversary Color:
Silver.
25th Anniversary Flower:
Iris

If you want to give a rose symbolic of the silver






and of course, the obvious reference to fritz lang's masterpiece, Metropolis, where everything seems to be made of metal.




Image

Silver is neither black nor white, not even grey, because grey does not sparkle or shine.

it will also stay cool in the hot sun since it reflects.

i smell an aluminum foil revival here...
fuck you, it's magic

Feet and knees today. But I don't think I want to travel for a cure. The hips and lower back could be problematic.

I should hold out for the Futurama future and be a head in a jar.

Garbage truck art car... containing lost souls, vague expectations, broken hearts, bizzare relationships, and........

Garbage truck art car...containing putrid, reeking, rotting trash, playing polkas, waltzes and Michael Jackson B-sides...

Garbage truck art car... picking up other art cars and carrying them away...

[quote="chiefdanfox"]or maybe something more like the 1927 Fritz Lang movie. The world divided between the workers and the thinkers. (doers and the spectators? me being one of the ultimate spectators this year! Couch Spectato.)[/quote]

I read the first 3 entries and cried. How many people in Superman Costumes are going to be out there. This is art deco people... ha ha ha... maybe we'll have some android art deco supermen?

poof!

Should be so cool. I saw the interview with Larry on time.com where he was promising it was going to be a big year. Lot of word that this will be the last? Rumor control - I have one here.

Metroplex?

Postby brillantnut » Thu Dec 31, 2009 1:34 pm

This is not the Metroplex from Transformers??

I'm all for Brazil like Metropolis but robots would be so fun
Everyday just herding the Fleaks.

Tomorrow it will be this year's theme.

Image

Greetings, my friend. We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future. You are interested in the unknown... the mysterious. The unexplainable. That is why you are here. And now, for the first time, we are bringing to you, the full story of what happened on that fateful day. We are bringing you all the evidence, based only on the secret testimony, of the miserable souls, who survived this terrifying ordeal. The incidents, the places. My friend, we cannot keep this a secret any longer. Let us punish the guilty. Let us reward the innocent. My friend, can your heart stand the shocking facts of grave robbers from outer space?
