Strange But True

Postby nocturnal_steve » Sat Aug 27, 2011 4:16 am

These are REAL POST offering Bm tickets for sale:

For $1500....
Due to a busy and hectic work schedule I can not go to Burning Man this year ... am looking for someone who has the true spirit of burning man to take my place....

For $575...
Freaking out about the expenses of getting a tent, and all the equipment
Want to sell my ticket for what I think is a fair price for all the stress I had over it all

And finally the Winner;
The girl who wound up with an extra ticket, and looking for some one to ride with her in her water damaged,
moldy smelling Volvo: "I tried, can't get the smell out, and the front seat is stuck in the most up-front position, don't say I didn't warn you""
(so she is looking for a midget with Anosmia .)

And even though she doesn't "believe in or condone scalping", if she can't find someone to ride with her
she will "sell the ticket to the highest bidder". If she sells her ticket maybe she should use the money for a brain transplant.....

Well, under those circumstances the highest price is probably $60.

Ebay looks very much like it did a few years ago around this time.

Lots of overpriced tickets, mostly not selling.
A lot of tickets selling cheap.

My favorite on cl was "offered $700 but holding out for $1000" and "we're pretty, give us tickets" in reno.

From Reno cl
I have one Burning Man ticket left for the right individual. The catch is you have to give up certain inalienable rights to get this. How desperate are you for the playa? Ask yourself, 'is my life as it currently is... working?' I think I have a solution which will broker your situation and leave you in wonderment of humanity and questionable of reality. Anyway, hit me back with your blood type and astrological sign. Thanks!- Mel

DJ needs free burningman ticket

Hello Fellow Burners.

I'm looking for two "gifted" tickets for me and my super hot girl. I need to get to the burn because I'm scheduled to play at several huge theme camps and don't want to let them down. I don't have much money to offer since I have sunk most of my dough having a three piece suite of blue LED lights made with matching fur boots. Trust me this outfit will make Morris Day turn green with envy.

So if you can gift me and my sexy lady two tickets we will make a super surprise visit to your camp and wow your camp mates with our unique flavor for life and and we we can gift organic otter pops to members of your camp. As far as DJing at your camp, I can't make any promises but I should be able to fit in a one 45 min set at some point. Trust me I normally get a $500 per hour when I play and that's minimum, so you know I'm good. In addition my hourglass amazon can give you and one guest a personalized yoga lesion. She has been teaching yoga for over 7 months and already has a few leads on some teaching gigs.

I would of course need a ride to and from the event for me and my desert princess We don't have much baggage just Denon DN-HS4573 high speed turntables with coffin, Ran TTM-56 Double Spit Mixer, 2 JBL EON315 24" speakers, a medium sized cedar chest (for our costumes) and our 14 year old yorkshire terrier Mr. Pink Whistle (I will clean up any throw up he makes in your car). Me and my girl don't take up much room due to the fact that we work out every day and are strict vegetarians but occasionally eat chicken. Also can you store the otter posp, since we won't have a freezer but you are welcome to eat a few ;)

"Life is not measured by the # of breathes we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.."
Thank you in advance- DJ Butternutsquash

If Obron (the king of the fairies) is reading this I need my pair of Oakley goggles back. You said you were going to clean them at the burn last year and you were supposed to meet me at the floating pickle but you never showed up. So once I get up there I'm going to be looking for you and you better have my goggles "cleaned" or I'm going to break your arm in three places dude.
