I am aghast that I do not see this upcoming event being gratuitously pimped.

I'm tossing the options around in my mind. The SF event seems to be little more than a dance party.

I think I'll drop in on the Nevada City doins, but only for a few hours in the afternoon. I have some of our New and Improved! Barbie Death Camp oval BRC stickers that I want to donate to the cause. If anyone is there around 3 or so I'll say hi. Not drinking until next Wednesday, but I'll join you in a group grope.

I haven't been to Burnal Equinox in a few years, but it's usually a pretty good time. Plenty of space to ignore, playa art on show, and fun performances (electronic music, live bands, and other performers). Pandorra and I are looking forward to attend, and plan to raise our glass and toast our friends Burnally Equinoxing it up in Reno… several times… :)

Burning Man is a fertile “petri dish” of the Self and Community, where
people bring bizarre and marvelous ingredients of self-expression and
collaborate to create new expressive forms and ways of life. We can
now scarcely be contained in the Black Rock Desert and our experiment
is spilling over into the larger world at an alarming rate. We invite
your imagination to spill over, too! Get in touch with your inner
mad-scientist-art-splicing-
bio-blingy-socio-cultural-reinvention-badass-funtastic-truly-amazing-self
and BRING IT! Your art, your ideas, your creative spark and wild-eyed
passion for what’s possible!

In the spirit of invention and play, mad scientist and inventive
attire of every conceivable kind is encouraged at this celebration;
help bring the playa to SF and embody your own unique
“cross-pollination” of imagination and boundless reality. It’s a
challenging new world and we are going to live and invent it TOGETHER!
So, reunite with old friends and new as part of this marvelous and
evolving community experiment!!! We wouldn’t dream of doing it without
you!

Whether you come as a hive of virtuous honey bees or the dreaded Dr.
Birgin Sparklepony! ...or choose to skip all the fuss and come as you
truly are—we look forward to BEEing with you and experimenting
together!

Art and performances to stimulate your acclimation to this experimentation!
Artists include: Dan Fow, Otto Ewen, body painting from Meadow Lorax,
and MANY, MORE!!!
Performers include: Dead Klown Society, Delachaux, Dioskouri, Grumples
Z Clown, i can dress myself, Jonboy, P-dub (guerillaBASS) and MANY,
MANY, MORE!!!

See you there, Dr Pyro.
And maybe you too, Dougly.
I'll be in the back yard at the fire garden.

Yaaay I'll be at the Nevada City Miners Foundry one this weekend! Stoked to meet Ygmir!!

Look for the lotus on a stick!

Last year we dorked out in the parking lot (which is a really cool space) til 4am, cops came and gave us the thumbs up...we were just playing some acoustic music and hangin' by the fire art. So grand....ALBINO always brings a great vibe anyway no matter what. Lots of Burntowners and Renos will be in the house woohooooo

It will be a Vaudevillian mix of true burner spirit mixed with true nevada city spirit.

Yeah, I am going to do this. It's a 3 hour drive, but I gotta get back home in the evening.

Hey, what's the road conditions going up? Do I need to bring chains?

Assuming this is outdoors, I hope there's plenty of fire!!!!! :)

yay, Dougly!!
the roads should be fine by then, and they're calling for clearing and warmer temps by tomorrow.
snow and ice today, though.

If you still have those really pretty gold colored chains and the velvet lined cuffs, you might want to bring them, though. I know the miners foundry there will be full of fun folks!

Yay Dougly! We can hang out a bit longer than we did at SF Decom.

RedHeaven - I was at the diesel tree in the back yard until 4am last year.
We must not make the same mistake twice and actually meet this year.
The tree won't be there this year, but we are bringing four burn barrels.
Mischief Lab is bringing poofers (that's what they call them), and Jango is bringing his stilt bar.

The fire spinners there last year were the best I have ever seen.
Albino even took an intermission from playing for everyone to go outside to watch them.

I recall thinking that the Foundry barely held everyone last year; that should the event grow this year,
they will have outgrown the Foundry. But it doesn't seem that tickets have sold out yet.

And they changed the vendor area to no selling, since it is not a BM sanctioned event.
Which is kind of a shame as there were so many artisans with one of a kind pieces last year.
Not sure they will have the same motivation to show and display.

Safe Travels.

Wish we had parties like that here for the equinox.

We had a warm spell and it was in the 40's so I did my best:

Put on my playa clothes.

Put up a bunch of lights.

Blasted music I dislike (Dubstep).

Broke out my box of playa dust to smell.

Ate some crappy food out of a can.

Drank massive quantities of fairly warm PBR.

Spun my Poi for hours.

But It just wasn't the same or even close because it lacked other burners.

Sometimes I really wish I lived on the other coast.
Savannah: I don't know what it is, but no thread here escapes alive. You'll get 1 or 2 real answers at minimum, occasionally 10 or 12, and then we flog it until it's unrecognizable and you can't get your deposit back.
