Are there vendors there at all? Is everything run through the organization Burning Man, food, goods, etc?


You can sell drugs. And children under 5, but only if they're healthy. Also, kiddie porn is ok, pirated dvds, knock-off Gucci and Dolce and Gabbana handbags. Prostitution is ok, but everyone is kinda dirty, so keep that in mind.

Any other questions?

GODDAMNIT! they were FAKE!!!???

Yes, that's what made them "art"


I prefer my fashion accessories to be Chinese knock-offs made in Taiwan by Indonesian immigrants and made with Singaporean materials.

Reno is so close to hell you can see Sparks!

My personal favorite is one of the definitions in Urbandictionary.com, it's the best!

Reno
A place where toothless strippers and worn out prostitutes go to die
Did you see Bertha? She Renoed herself like her older sister Bessie.

I'm a native...so I guess I'm exempt :shock:

Vendors are welcome. Just not their vends

More Vendors would vacation with us at Burning Man. However, Labor Day weekend is a big time of year for them so they usual work instead at their usual gigs.

Yes, there is no art for sale. However you can still go home with a metric fuckton of art, if you desire. People give away their art, even to newbies who've only posted once. You can get pendants, prints, and hippie pieces of crap. One very nice place to "shop" for a piece of art freely given (but please don't just take something) is AntiM's Home for Wayward Art, where you can adopt one of several amazing pieces of naive or sophisticated art that will grace your walls when you get home. And I'm not scuking up to AntiM because she's a mod on this board. I'm sucking up to her because she's a very fine human being and she'd be an "inspiration" if we believed in such things.


Whoa whoa, wait a minute! AntiM's Home for Wayward Art...shit, I hadn't made that connection. That was one of the first things that I saw on my first day at Burning Man, and I remember it fondly as one of the damned coolest things I saw that year (which is obviously saying a lot!). I often went out of my way to walk by it and see what random items had been recently clipped on throughout the week.

Not meaning to be another ass-kisser (though I will if you'd like), but that is honestly one of the random memories that always sticks out whenever I think about 2007.
I volunteered at Burning Man and all I got was this stupid superiority complex.

I don't know what you are looking for, but be sure to bring Canadian money, because I know you can't spend real money there.

Hushville will be on the map. As a village, it is a double block, and one street will dead-end in a T intersection. We usually are on that T. so people don't try to drive through on our village paths.

I usually am in the where what when guide also, but if you can find Hushville, you can find the Wayward Art. As Fishy says, they give me streetside placement as an interactive installation.

When I left there last year in my MV, I somehow ended up with 3 other MVs following me.

I then ended up at the Deep End, where I had to sit for over 20 minutes waiting for the other MVs behind me to back up so I could also.

Thanks for the Godzilla shirt, Anti-m, even though you weren't there. :wink:

i remember last year, walking around center camp on Monday night... two teenagers (or early twenties kids) came up to me asking, "where can we get some food around here?"

All i could say was, "I have no idea." Looking back on it, I'm sure that at that time, black rock diner or some other camp would probably be serving something. I think it was the way they asked that caught me off guard. They really sounded like they wanted to know if they could buy food somewhere.

Oh i hope they survived the week.

end of random memory. but yeah - no vendors. please bring food for the week. :-)

Something like that happened to me Sunday day where out in the open playa some fired wildeye guy begged me for an orange. However he was coming down off drugs so I thought he had a legitimate excuse and just so happenned I had an extra oranges in my pack. Maybe he was psychic. He said thanks and was really really grateful.
