Burningman in 20 years

Hey, not bad for a "fixer-upper"! I think it needs a colorful coat of paint, sort of like the Partridge Family school bus...

[quote="Steel Kitty"]Falk, that already happened. We had the misfortune (or were somehow damned in hell on the way there) of locating next to the "art" car covered in plush, cutesy toys blaring a repeating tracklist that included the venerable B-52's Rock Lobster. Over. And Over. And Over again for the entire fucking week.

Fuck. I hate that song with a passion now.

Oh, so back on topic.

<sarcasm>
In twenty years we'll have piped in water and electricity so no more port-a-potty madness or large rented generators as the BMORG found it was less expensive to simply lay in piping and electrical services from Gerlach. Electrical services are set up RV style to each street and you pay for your electricity -- imagine the revenue for BMORG and not having to lug your f-ing generator out each time!

Paved roads so as not to damage the playa further and a nice six lane highway leading out to Route 447 to facilitate easier entrances and exits for large 50' RV's.

Center Camp year round -- less tear down and set up.

Good Morning America does a morning show from Center Camp, sponsored by Peet's Coffee (mmm.. taste the freshness!)

The man doesn't actually burn anymore. Due to increased fuel shortages and resources, the man is constructed entirely out of plastic. Then on the appointed day, the man is lit up like a Christmas tree, the man is toppled, and then slowly the lights are dimmed to finally off. This will save BMORG nearly 3 million a year on fireworks and construction costs alone.
And like any good plastic christmas tree, it can be re-used year after year after year!

<end sarcasm>[/quote]

Yeagggg, Camp Wannaburn was at the corner of 5:00 and H, after two hours we actually went over to the teddy-bear van folk and offered em some treats to never EVER play B-52's again. Good people though!

Boats? Boats!! Woo Hoo, I am so there! :D

How bout you, Captain?
Excuse me Ma'am, your going to feel a small prick.

Bm in 20yrs time will hopefully be like Ibiza was 20 years ago.

20 years from now BM will probably be what Ibiza is now. THAT would be a shame!


Kinda think the key is in the 20 years thing?

Will say no more.

In twenty years, because of the advancing age of the average burner, Bacon will be replaced with tapioca.

20 years from now, burning man will not be on our minds, us being transcended beings of light and all.
but burning man in three years, 2012, now thats something to talk about.
theme?

Truth. Next year, I'm bringing a loud sound system and a Best of John Denver album and letting those all-night techno-ravers have a taste of their own medicine while they're trying to sleep off the previous night.


My play list includes...
America, Horse With No Name
Capt. and Tennile, Muskrat Love
Barry Manilow, Greatest Hits (heavy on the Mandy)
William Shatner, Lucy In The Sky, and Tamborine Man
Zamphir, Master of the Pan Flute
Wild Man Fischer
Captain Beefheart, Trout Mask Replica
Mrs. Miller's Greatest Hits (CBS 1972) Imagine Mayberry's Aunt Bee singing These Boots Are Made For Walking as off-key opera
Slim Whitman's Greatest Hits (oh, if only his music had the same effect on Ravers that it has on Martians)

Looking for new additions if you have any suggestions.
It's not because I'm old. Your music actually does suck.

If Gizmo is still taking song requests, just about anything from Yoko Ono's (blessedly short) solo career would be large-caliber ammo for your acoustic guns. :mrgreen:
