2010 Theme: Time Travel

This is eerie and awesome at the same time.
Spiraled me into some futuristic design of Burning Man.
The layout around the telescope...in a vast nothingness...
...the grids...the streets....familiar? Damn straight they are....

I watched this, tripped a bit, imagination ran pleasantly wild,
and thought WHY THE FUCK NOT?

So, here's the Plan. LISTEN UP, LARRY!!!!

We show up on the playa in 2010...a magical number anyway. Yay!
The Man sits atop a huge fucking Mother Spaceship Time Machine.
David Bowie's music plays...Ground Control To Major Man....

We all get in.
The sky lights up, fireworks abound, blinky lights are abundant.
Everyone has all their art supplies and plenty of faux fur and water for the trip....

KAPLOOOSH!!! SCHWIIIIIING!!! We head into outer space....

We head to Planet Burning Man...
....the final frontier....
....the destination we're all dying for....
....the perfect utopia...
....HOME....

Fuck Earth.
We're making a New Earth.

2010 was incredible but 1953 is going to be the best.

I went back in time. It wasn't their hands our ancestors touched to the giant slab... :roll:

So, just so I get this straight......

David Bowie went back in time, tomorrow, to 1953, and returned yesterday with a big slab of lamb that he plans to BBQ, all the while touching himself and listening to Alan Parsons?

:?

:lol:
Excuse me Ma'am, your going to feel a small prick.

I'd lick it, if it meant that then I knew how to bash in other monkies' brainies.

themes usually do not trigger my imagination at all
"time travel" would be a little more interesting...

2012

Postby Tamino » Sun Jul 05, 2009 8:22 pm

And the theme for 2012 should be "The End of Time"

When the Rapture, sorry, End of Time happens, can I have your stuff?

Holy crap, ygmir... you gotta hell of a laugh outta me with that post.

And whether the 2010 theme turns out to be Time Travel or not, it's theme I'm going with for certain.

Could someone tell me what the 2011 theme was? I've forgotten. (Maybe it was Amnesia...?)
