You know, I like the enthusiasm and the idea. I might even wear a nose for a short while,or longer if it gets a laugh. Fuck the MOOP factor. Frankly I'd rather pick up the MOOP from those noses than the complete instruction packets to how to assemble a bicycle or other crap that inconsiderate people deliberately throw on the playa any day.

Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

I'm thinking I could bring needle and thread and put a discrete neck strap on mine. But I realize 55.000 people won't be doing that.

Yes, I have some new and modified plans!
But they will have to wait until after BYOBW here in sunny San Francisco on Easter:



PS, I'm taking a camera and couple hundreds noses and since I'm in the middle of the org and cleanup, AIN'T NO NOSE MOOP AT BYOBW2012!

Awww Simon, turn that frown upside down :)

Honestly man, Hate?
Why are you even on the Playa?
To be bitter and jaded?
Where are you camping? I'll come by without a nose on and re-read you the Ten Principles and maybe convince John Halcyon to drop in and give you a big pink hug :)

I'm wondering sftex, why aren't you wearing a red nose in your photo? Maybe an elastic string would be helpful? I might wear one for a day, or so...


Elliot the fantastic Racer K !



I'd say it'd take at least a decade for a New Yorker to adjust to San Diego.... Please don't taze me. Me and mine are freindly! We will stash any noses and pink, I promise.



It's TRUE, they are watching...

Well, BYOBW 2012 was a blast, in fact I took noses and made a video:



Since this thread was last visited, I've expanded my scope and now I'm shooting for August 29th to NOT ONLY be WhyTheNose Wednesday on the Playa...

BUT ALL AROUND THE COUNTRY! :lol: :lol: :lol:

So, I'm raising the bar to 100K noses, to be distributed to friends of Burners and friends of their friends, etc.
It's kind of a goal setup to be on Ellen :)

More news soon, but this WILL happen and to be fair, it's a perfect mission for Agents of Possibility like all of us, right? :D

Are your noses organic, fair-trade, biodegradable and spiritual?

From jackass:

"Out for attention from the media, wants to use the burn as the backdrop to further his own agenda...just a wild guess"

Actually, had you read my story or taken any time, you'd KNOW that the Burn IS THE FUCKING AGENDA.
Look, I've been online since BBS systems, so trolling might be fun for you, but this IS serious stuff.

Do I want media attention for the the Nose, the idea of the Nose and the agenda of changing the world, one smile at a time?

FUCK YES! LET'S USE THEIR "POWER" FOR SOMETHING GOOD.

Would I ever use the Burn as a backdrop? Really, that's a question to you?

Regardless, the real question for you sir would be: What did you do today (or yesterday) or tomorrow, to further the ideals and opportunity the ethos of Burning Man presents?
You made a "wild guess" and it is wildly WRONG :)

Namaste mutherf*ckers :D

More agenda from this red-nosed bodhisattva warrior-in-training soon...
