SUGGESTIONS FOR NEXT YEARS THEME

SUGGESTIONS FOR NEXT YEARS THEME

Postby BluMonk1622 » Thu Oct 13, 2005 6:48 am

IF CREATIVITY = THE BREAKING OF RULES, THEN MADNESS IS JUST CREATIVITY TAKEN TO EXTREMES SO THE THEME FOR NEXT YEAR SHOULD BE................... "GOING TO EXTREMES"
May you live in interesting times,

I just hope they announce the theme early again like they did last year in december.

Is there a list of the themes that have been used posted somewhere?

If you go to "Theme Camps" from the main menu, you'll see a year-by-year listing of the themes, camps, theme art and so forth.

So far, it's a tossup for next year between "Hats" and "Animals"...(or "Animals with Hats"......)

I like 'animals with hats'. There's a lot of comedy in a giraffe wearing a zebra print fez.

I could have the "Wheel of Hats" and "Wheel of Animals" in my camp, so people could spin and randomly create hat/animal combos.....

How about The Forbidden, and in depth look at the things the world says we can't do

Streets could be named after taboo practices--Necrophilia, Beastiality, Nudity, Cannibalism, etc.

Think of the camps....it would give one pause to see a sign saying 'Pony Rines'--and every barbeque would be suspect

You'll need a half-melted Barbie Power Wheels Jeep for your Mutant Vehicle, of course....With gimballed wineglass-holders. Do it, and I'll make you a BDCAWB license plate.....

"From Cave To Rave"....Drum circles and rock banging in Center Camp, and Techno out by the trash fence...passing through all eras and styles of music in between.

As long as you have a burn blanket under your harpsichord, I say Rocc Out. Rococco-And-Roll, Hootchie Koo....Lordie, Larry, light My Fuse.

I might have changed my mind....Perhaps the Man should be standing on a huge American-flag-painted motorcycle helmet, and wearing a neon-tube fringed CCR jacket. Freeeeeeeeebiiiiirrrrrdddddddd!!!

Hushville could be renamed "Beethoven Camp".

2006 Theme

Postby 1-LOVE » Fri Oct 28, 2005 9:48 am

Everyone I've talked to has agreed that an Environmental theme would be welcomed and appreciated. Many have stated that "a them with menaing would be refreshing." With the current state of the world, perhaps Mother Nature, Leave No Trace, Ecosystems, Gaia or something in that neighborhood would be the way to go for 2006.

LEAVE NO TRACE is a theme EVERY year. And it's entirely up to YOU to infuse the theme with meaning- That's what makes having a theme at all worthwhile. The fun is beholding the broad diversity of interpretation within a shared context. And you are under no obligation whatsoever to adhere to the theme, anyway- It'd be a waste to forsake artistic vision for conformity. A lot of folks rail against the theme, while others welcome it as a springboard towards greater creativity. Personally, I do both.
