50k or Don't Fucking Play.

All things outside of Burning Man.

50k or Don't Fucking Play.

yeah, that's right.

it's time to put on the goddamn choke collar.

i propose that BMORG make a new rule.

50k or don't fucking play.


for the sake of the Burning Man, and our eardrums, and The Community, we have to stop this Beast in it's tracks.

Why do we need anything Louder?

We DONT.

it's stupid, dangerous, and and will only continue the annual "whose got the biggest dick on the playa" contest that inevitably occurs between the Large Sound Entities.

fuck that shit, fuck the people it draws, and fuck the non-participatory nature of this spectator sport.

i'm not saying we eliminate it, but it is necessary to rein this in.

now.

What Say You? :twisted:

I'll go with ya.
I biggest peeve is the large art car/sound cars, that pull up to a camp, event, or installation, and blast everyone nearby out, or drive down the street and park.........
and, then try the "oh, are we bothering?" look. When you can see them laughing and pointing as they approach, as much to say "here, look how big my wallet/dick is, and I can totally stop all conversations, lower volume music, and enjoyment, when I want,for as long as I want.

Old joke with just a little bit of teeth:

Moses comes down from the mountain, carrying heavy stone tablets to the people dancing around the gold calf. He speaks:

“I have brought you these fif…”

One of the tablets slips from his grip and shatters on the ground.

“…these ten commandments!”



As for excessive sound volume, you have my vote, Simon.

This is art too, however, "What Isn't Burning Man? Burning Man isn't your usual festival, with big acts booked to play on massive stages. In fact, it's more of a city than a festival, wherein almost everything that happens is created entirely by its citizens, who are active participants in the event."

Are we talking a 5000 watt sound limit? Why not decibels? Talk me through this.

i'm sorry, i guess i'm not white enough to understand.


and dougly, we're talking 50,000 watt limit , and some kind of guidance as to upper decibel threshold levels that aren't in the "severe pain / bleeding / permanent damage" region.

honestly, and in all seriousness, sound at that level can be fucking dangerous, and if you hit a "sweet" spot with too much dB you will rupture someones fucking eardrums if they aren't protected.

not to mention the sleep patterns of the other 50k members of the community...

Me, I have a rather nasty case of tinnitus -- a permanent hissing noise in my ears, which tends to drive me batty. The medical evidence seems clear that this was caused by the many loud sounds I "enjoyed" earlier in life, such as rock concerts, power tools, target shooting, race cars and motorcycles, and so forth. We fragile humans really need to take better care of ourselves over the long run.

I have just found ear muffs that span from ear to ear.. The connecting part go's on the back of the neck.. At first I was going to take the muffler part out.. just use then to keep playa dust out of the hearing aids.. Will leave them as is for sound protection.. Aircraft took my hearing out..
