Do you all really think you are witty...
well quit frankly the truth is?
Burning man volunteers make half as much as they did five years ago despite the increasing economy, and the huge monetary value that the event has accumulated through ticket sales....

oh yeah they pay sooo much to the government...

bullshit....

harry larvey, or i mean larry harvey and his mini onions, or i mean minions are becoming rich and a huge percentage of the burning art grants are givin solely to people like the temple builders....

because the rest of us suck at art, I guess.

Well fuck your wit, and fuck your e- venting....

and fuck your pen... Jerome Templaugh, for without guns and the belgiam congo corporation, we wouldn't have ink, paper, rubber, wire, millions of dead and displaced africans, the holocaust or the world wars...

it is all currupt even your stupid little game....

So tell me- what happened to the fucking opera... or does no one remember large groups of people putting on the best fucking show on the playa....

Let's all get fucked up and hit eachother in the face!!!! :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :twisted: :twisted: :evil: :evil: :shock:
WAKE UP!!!!

Temple progress report

Postby adamrice » Mon Aug 24, 2009 12:25 pm

A member of the Temple crew, Ira, has gotten online and posted a progress report, and some photos. He says that everyone made it out, they're working their asses off, and that progress is about as smooth as one could hope for. See: http://communityartmakers.com/archives/929/

I found this to be an interesting criticism of what the Temple has become:

Posted on the BURNcastTV.com blog

markymark said...

David Best's 'temple'-concept has taken away the incredible power of Burn night.

1. By separating sadness 'the temple' and joy 'the Burningman' we are not experiencing the complex set of emotions that were, at one time, inextricably unified in the festival's ultimate event. It has created the unnecessary duality of sacred and profane. Same old tired shit we've been experiencing and trying to get over, since the time of ancient Greece. This thinking enables the priest (in this case the Icon maker David Best) to be in direct contact with the 'deity' and focus your thoughts on the presented icon. It prevents you from experiencing your sadness and mourning directly. Having an icon present--the temple--can prevent you for taking responsibility for the breadth of your own emotions, instead, your experience will be what the icon maker wants you to experience... the sadness that only a Best(TM) burial temple can bring.

Options...
Burningman is about Burningman. It isn't about Burningman on Saturday and Temple burn on Sunday night. Why leave an event with a guaranteed sob. The ultimate event has by default now become 'the Temple Burn'. If you choose to do some mourning, please do it at the beginning of the festival on Monday night and get your sadness out of the way so we don't have to experience it.

Too many groupies...
David Best's (and his imitators) temples are derivative crap in the first place. Why hasn't anyone done something the least bit original... if I see another East Asian-inspired temple, it will be tooooo soon. It's culture vulturism at its pathetic worst. Euchronia was the last original, large-scale architectural piece on the playa. Best's groupies (and their groupies) are a bunch of architecture dilettantes working on their resumes for grad school by interning on a 'temple'. Unfortunately, they've have done too much MDMA to see the truth behind the curtain... that there is no curtain. Its pathetic seeing these folks fawning over second rate craftsmen.


Solution...
Our best case solution for this year's temple is to hope that some brave soul will risk jail and burn it on Monday night.

Lets make this burn temple-free.
