Eplaya Camp 2005

Postby Dr. Pyro » Fri Dec 10, 2004 9:23 pm

I'm not sure what I would add to your camp, but this promise I will make: I will bring over a couple of bottles of wine from our wine bistro to bestow upon the unwashed masses. Of course we likely will gather on Thursday for the fifth annual Meet&Greet at BDC&WB, and I expect that Wheeeee!ville (which for the uninitiated grew from the original eplaya into one helluva village and these people, none of whom I knew three years ago, are amongst my closest Burning Man friends) will be back and our camp will be domiciled there, assuming they will again have us. I guess the question I would ask is do you plan on having any interactive activities? Ivy had her belly dancing classes, which were very well attended; Tom [testesinsac] had his full-body massage and chill space; we took over, for this year at least, Zane's "Black Rock Body and Paint" and had the responsibility of painting any and all women's (and not just a few men's) breasts prior to Critical Tits; we had our fire cannon that the Rangers made us shoot off only on the open playa lest we incinerate our villagemates and about half of Gigsville; and so on. My point is this: besides yourselves, what are you going to do to actually make the citizens of Black Rock City visit you? I would think of a theme of some sort, and certainly a bar with a nice twist (for example, in Wheeeee!ville there is Smite Camp, and you spin the wheel to see if you get smited or not while negotiating for a drink), would be a fabulous addition. Happily you have eight months to figure it out. Let the process begin!

wondering when someone would mention

here in the year aught-five, year 20 of the Man, the year of borg2, all I see on this thread from some of the heaviest hitting denizens of the eplaya is.....

"gee fellas and gals, wouldn't it be swell if we all camped together!?!? We could have a bitchin' bar!!!" Nothing about "we could do some outrageous art together", no synergy. Some folks are talking about bringing their individual projects to the camp. But where's the WOW!?!? Where's the "we dominate eplaya, we can bring together the coolest art on the real playa"?

Maybe it's all on other boards, maybe it's all offline, or maybe you-all need to step it on up. Doc Pyro has (subtly) laid down the challenge. I'll be a little more direct. Where's the art? Where's the participation?

A cool activity I thought of ...

Back in the stone age when I was a kid, we had a TV show called The Mitch Miller Sing Along. Performers would sing songs and the studio audiance would sing along and families watching would sing along too. It was a great way to learn a lot of songs.

Well, instead of karaoke ... what if someone did a great big audiance participation sing along with EVERYONE singing ... at the same time. Wonder if it could drown out the thumpa, thumpa, thumpa. I will be people walking by will not be able to resist joining in!

That show had the "follow the bouncing ball" thing but a modern karaoke machine coudl work. And yes, that would be an AWESOME song to do once folks got warmed up and a crowd has gathered!

Nurse Rosetta
I wont Let her
Catch me Peering
Down her Sweater

Isn't that from Veronica's Sake ... "So for Veronica's sake, I've got to get out of here ..." I think Veronica is his dog in the song.

I got my name and number
I got my bed assigned
I got a dog in the city pound
That I left behind
I'm strapped down and wild-eyed
She's locked up in a pen
She needs somebody to feed her
And I'm her only friend

So for Veronica's sake I gotta get out of here
Yeah for Veronica's sake, she can get pretty weird
Yeah for Veronica's sake I gotta get myself out of here

We both been put in cages
We got our shots and tags
I got my sweatin' fist to shake
She's got her tail to wag
She has to bark and whimper
While I could scream and shout
The clock above the psycho ward
Says time is running out

So for Veronica's sake I gotta get out of here
Yeah for Veronica's sake, she can get pretty weird
Yeah for Veronica's sake I gotta get myself out of here

And I can see her howling all night at the lonely moon
They're going to give her the gas if I don't get there soon
I gotta get there soon

For Veronica's sake I gotta get out of here
Yeah for Veronica's sake, she can get pretty weird

Let me feel your tongue depressor! I'm suddenly twice my size, my pants are all wet inside.

No it's a separate song. Old AC is a goofball. =)

You know I was checking it out and Bernie Taupin actually co wrote that with AC and David Foster. I have been misspelling it though. It is Nurse Rozetta.

4. Nurse Rozetta

[Alice Cooper / Bernie Taupin / David Foster / Steve Lukather]

I'm a shepherd for the pentecost
I got my scriptures and my wires crossed
I got no kids and I got no home
They want us holy men to live alone

Since I've been here for a little stay
I see Rozetta day by day
She turns my head makes me cough
I want to tear my collar off

I just can't sleep at night
Rozetta dressed in white
She's got the Devil's light
Shining in her eyes

Screamed my sermon damning sin and vice
When underneath I was a regular guy
My pulpit melted like a block of ice
When a bolt of lightning hit me from the sky

From my stretcher when they wheeled me in
I stared directly in the eyes of sin
Nurse Rozetta standing over me
And I was helpless as a man of God could be

Nurse Rozetta I won't let her
Catch me peering down her sweater
Fantasizing silk suspender on her thighs
Nurse Rozetta make me better
Secretly my eyes undress her
Let me feel your tongue depressor

I'm suddenly twice my size
My pants are all wet inside

She's so creative with a bar of soap
And so inventive with a stethoscope
To check my pulse she gotta hold my hand
I blow the fuse on the encephalogram

Satan sent her from the bowels of hell
I should have recognized old Jezbel
I surrendered to the urges felt
She popped the buckle on my bible belt

I just can't sleep at night
Rozetta dressed in white
She's got the Devil's light
Shining in her eyes

I'd lick her nylon seams
Like a hungry cat with cream
Oh what a vivid seam
And I can't hold back no more

Sorry about that heavy duty AC sidetrack!

I agree the Beatles tune here would probably work well. There must be a ton of other songs too... I just can't think right now!

Just one more thing ... would be pretty easy to do with a small art car or cart or something, quiet generator, small sound system and karaoke machine a hundred feet or so into the playa from the Esplanade with the music pointed back and the people facing the esplanade so the sound carries that way ...

Does someone actually have a kareoke machine? Because that would rule at the camp. I've never done it, but I sure would at EPLAYA CAMP 2005!

My favorite Alice Cooper song is Poison. I dance my fucking ass off with that song. I LOVE that song. It's one of my top ten favs.
