An Idiot's Virgin Burning Man Experience 2011

Video shot, edited, and posted by Tom Kiesche, and posted here with his kind permission. I thought this was a really great clip, through the eyes of a first-timer (though it took him 12 years to get to BRC). Big ups also go to the playa surfers, looks like they had an amazing time out there.

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

The best thing about that was getting to see Tom's face from time to time; seeing the emotions he was feeling.

Very Cool. It took me a long time to get there as well, but with nobody coaxing me. To the contrary I couldn't find anyone to come with me, so I drove out solo from Boston. Soooo glad I did. I'm stealing the phrase back from those people who make those shoes for running... JUST DO IT.

I see only young people in that video. Did you avoid old people altogether, or did you just not press record while in their presence?

Great to finally see a video that includes the actual audio from the recording! I'm so tired of the "montage" style videos with music dubbed over them.

[quote="Packoderm"]I see only young people in that video. Did you avoid old people altogether, or did you just not press record while in their presence?[/quote]


I have the same complaint about all the skinny bitches ;) I always tell friends that havent gone to look at regular casual photo albums and not just professional ones so they get the TRUE Burning Man. Seems like when people try to make art out of media, it widdles down the diversity of what you actually see there. Whatevs, that is the ARTISTS choice and I still appreciate seeing all the pretty peeps n shit, but I just dont really feel Burny until I see some worker bees, older folk, some not so dressed up folk, some more casual folks......Not everyone at Burning Man is a Dust Bunny Burner Gone Wild model or a pimp daddy fuzz butt snazzlepuss. (and thank goodness....I like the worker bees and older folk, theyre super hot :)

But give this guy a break, it was his first time. How about, give this guy a break, he's a regular guy ;)

The end chokes me up!

From one virgin to another, my thanks to you Tom. It was incredible. I was a fool not to go sooner.

I'm a changed person. And I want to go Home.
