Great article--I can't express how relieved I was to finally learn how to tell "hippies" and "hipsters" apart. (Note to self:dreads = hippie; no dreads = hipsters)

new thread - what to do if you're about to shit your pants in deep playa?


I suspect this is a opportunity for "when walking your dog" sort of thing...carry a couple plastic bags and some TP when traveling into the deep?

@FRESH, BITCH PLEASE! A glowstick is infinately more illuminating then nothing. I dont give a fuck how self aware darktards are, they're a hazard and prone to causing accidents. That doesnt excuse asshole golf cart and vehicle drivers from speeding and running people over. Everyone driving any kind of "official"? vehicle falls in that category.
I'm not going to waste my time reading an essay on why facebook should be advertised at burning man. His unique ability is equal to my unique ability to form a unique snowflake of a turd. The artist is a douchetool.

PP, you have shown how big of a jackass you are in one single page of ePlaya. If i was darktarding and you tried to hand me a glow stick, i would not have thrown it on the floor and called it MOOP, I would have thrown it in your face. Seriously, a single disposable glowstick is as visible as shit. My opinion is a person can go without light as long as they are in control and aware of their surroundings and stay out of the way and not spook others who are biking and riding MV's!

As far as Like for Real, strangelove and PP are both in the camp of "Judging a Book by its Cover" I will let the artist tell you what the project was about, if you have the attention span to read 6 paragraphs. And no it had nothing to do with facebook. the like or thumbs up is not only used on FB, but all over the internet.

And here is his post-playa response that includes his unique ability to embrace his harshest critics.

Doing this wrong.

I sank instead of bouncing, and smacked my melon on hard playa. Nothing a few picklebacks and slushies at DISTRIKT couldn't fix.

So, yeah. I had a ball.

I embarrassed the shit out of myself at a different ball pit. Seriously couldn't get my feet underneath me. Started to panic. Weirdest thing ever. It's what I imagine the ocean feels like if you can't swim.

YES Vulture! And, in this case, I was scrambling like mad at the bottom of that thing, trying to get out before someone did it wrong on my head.

I was a block away when I realized that i dropped my hat in the pit. most likely from hanging by my legs upside down on the dome. I sped back and was in frantic smacking balls away until I located it!!!

I got stuck in one of those giant hammocks on Esplanade. I am a bit curvy and really short so when I went to get out my but was flat on the ground and my feet were in the air, I had to ask some passers by to drag me out. It was a little embarrassing.

The worst part of the 2013 burn was that I wasn't there.....It really sucked for me but surely everyone attending must have felt a small unexplainable suckiness in their experience because I wasn't there. Right?

This is an actual FACT, Paydirt! I could tell that all those folks walking around looking dazed were actually looking for you and Aaroneous. I know for a fact that I was missing you. :cry:
And to make this year better, I'm on the lookout for your ticket and vehicle pass since you missed out on the fiasco of 22 April, by a matter of seconds. :shock:
