Are you going to be on the ring road beach?
That looked amazingly like a beach, especially with the lifeguard chair on it.

I think I'll pass. I didn't see a single reference to drinking wine or crucifying Barbies.

You know, right now I could really go for a hammock on a beach! :D


(Don't even know if I can make it this year, so that's about all I have to say.)

Sounds fun. What camps have you done in the past? Seems like you have a lot of stuff for this to be your first largish camp.

The best response I ever got on the radio was playing every Jan and Dean record I could find.
I couldn't find a bad song.
I wish I could write like that.

Beach Boys had some decent car songs too.

There's a station in Reno that plays "classic rock" and "oldies" (103.7FM) including Jan and Dean so I might listen to it more often for the next 2 1/2 months to get into that beach theme. Won't take much.

I am back and getting ready. Ride the waves and wind.

Postby EricMagic » Mon Jun 11, 2007 11:29 pm

Hey, I am back!!!!!!

Thanks for all the feedback, ideas, offers, and interest. Love hearing from everyone.

I have been in a fight for my life in the business and academic world like being caught on a desert isle with vicious animals and little bugs everywhere you turn. Seriously though bizarre wild liars, wars going on, IRS people, strange conformists who get alarmed at my individuality, and oh yea I also have various other issues which are all great, but exhausting as well. Can you relate to my scene?

Updates to our website about the campsite hopefully this weekend and about new volunteers, and we are still looking for very brave people to come venture with us. We need audio and video equipment very much, but please don't make me beg.

As usual for gearing up for BRC, and like many campers and travelers to BRC we are getting near the deadline struggling to catch up, trying get some sleep, pay our bills, and listening to various complaints about the hard work and sacrifice for a desert trip, and at the same time we are wishing we could just somehow stay in a perpetual Burning Man readiness; all the while money is mysteriously put into our bank accounts. But alas we have to ride the wide waves of the outside domains of corporate offices, backwoods, secret passage ways, local burns, misguided detours, and harsh academic studies to finally make it to our great hope, Beach - Paradise.

I need to catch some waves, sun, and sand, and wind really bad.

Special Note: Cool Music that I recently discovered for me at least so just passing it on to you music aficionados: IGGy Pop - Passenger, and Banshiees - Passenger, SEx Pistols - At least as A Wild Example of Non-Conformity, Grandmaster Flash, Bruce Haack - A True Originator of Techno-Electronic Music, B-52s - Stuff they don't play on radio, Native American Flute and Drums, some other stuff heard on the radio

Update of Beach-Paradise

Postby EricMagic » Wed Jul 18, 2007 12:39 pm

Hey Beach Loving People! Are you ready to Party at Beach-Paradise at the Black Rock Sea?

Whoops, it appears the Sea is in very low tide, and we missed the deadline for Registration of Theme Camp. But we are still going to put on the Theme Camp, or merge with a similar Theme Camp. Relax, it is not too late, nor too out of control, it is only the Burning Man Distortion Time Phenomenon.

If you are still interested in the Beach-Paradise Camp or know of similar Beach camps, please send me a message. The Beach Paradise Camp is in need of Sea Creatures, Lifeguards, Beach Bums who do at least one task, A/V Equipment, other stuff on list, very good sense of humor, Patience and Appreciation of Everything Relaxing, and People with the ability to create most anything with basic stuff, or barely anything at all.

Prepare to enjoy the fantastic delights of Beach-Paradise, and to ride the Invisible Waves Crashing Upon the gentle hot white sands of Beach- Paradise.

Side Philosophy Note / Proposal: Everyone needs help it seems, or help with some bad habit. Maybe we as a Human Society should all practice being lazy, and then everyone will ironically develop an odd habit of working and helping others. Of course don't be a doormat cause that is just not right.
