I'm part of the Pinky's camp and we haven't built thr bar for a couple of years now. It grew bigger and bigger until it hit breaking point. I don't speak for Pinky (who cringes at being called any kind of leade or spokesman himself), but I think it just got too expensive and complicated. All it takes is a few key contributors of time, money, resources, or the ability to motivate and you lose momentum. At our peak we had a big dance floor, dj, dance floor with stripper poles, 2 accomodating crow's nests, lots of great seating, and a shitload of pink fur and booze. It really is true that the most fun at BM is in the giving. I loved that place and making visitors happy. The Pinky's crowd still camps around 8:30 and halfway in. A group called Pink Mammoth conveniently set up their camp just down the street since Pinky's dissolved. They've got no affiliation with us though.
I think Bianca's got too much attention and heat (copwise) for its reputation as a place where you could watch people fuck and join in. Places like that can't exist so openly at Burning Man anymore. Maybe they are still around but more discreet and secretive? Hell if I know.
I really miss the Funk Camp/Church of Funk/Funkmobile crowd. Does anyone know what happened to them? They were genuinely the shit and had the greatest vibe. Funk, playa, and most drugs go soooo well together and I loved having an alternative to all the robot music performed by calculators.
