Clowns and bunnies are OK, but I hate ClownBunnies. I wear pink but my campmates wear red and black. The vitamins and minerals help keep me old and jaded ....But the kid in me likes it smug and happy!

In view of BMORG's probationary status for violating the attendee cap last year, I suggest you cut back to 50,000 noses. No need to cause more trouble.

Huggee Cult! :) Well played, but I know you are there for vegan ice cream served by beautiful loving tanned and toned awesomesauce peeps all day, just SAY IT ALREADY :roll:

Hmmm, did Halcyon ever dance to get on Ellen? Heck, he should, he'd look better than me.... :P

Well if these moop clown noses all end up past the fence at least we'll know who to blame.

Excuse me I need to go find my pitchfork and torch now...


seriously dude, I know that you are quite passionate about your WhyTheNose. I wish you were quite as passionate about keeping the playa as moop free as possible. And this clown nose thing just says otherwise to me. :(
Oh my god, it's HUGE!

True.
But getting compared to http://www.rednoseday.com/ might - just not in the way he's hoping for.

... but don't harm the red dragon that frequents the area from time to time. He and I have an agreement.

Lucky420, I'm happy to report I'm fastidious about MOOP, everyday, everywhere and commonly assist in facilitatin' and organizin' over two dozen Burner-filled events every year and they're all left as clean as possible. Please feel free to check up on the results of this mission post Fertility 2.0. Also, I'm tryin' like Hell here to be Mr. Positive Sunshine, but I'm too early in my training to fully succumb...so I have to ask:

Whom or what got you SO upset at MOOP that it's the first thing you lead with?
Was there an experience that now puts MOOP at the absolute top of your priority list when discussing art and experience?
Or is it, simply, clowns in general?

Hey Lemur, maybe getting on Ellen will cast Burning Man in a positive light and broadcast our principals to MILLIONS and then there's a generally cleaner America? World?

Ultimately, Burning Man, at this current zenith, has a higher purpose...much higher than any "jaded-fucks" here want to truly admit...even though they all know it in their hearts.
And that....

I actually thought this was a fun project provided moop was handled well... and then you preached about the "higher purpose".

We all know the "higher purpose" is to burn things. And the noses are inflammible. Unless you like breathing toxic shit.

No, I actually mean people who read more into their vacation plans than simply getting out and having a good time. But you can read it as "jaded fcuks" if you like.

yesyes i figured as much ;-)

just getting it in there before the clown person figures the jaded fucks as pretentious by way of being above/uncaring of such things as: being on ellen cuz of burning man and wanting to change the world with cheap plastic noses as is the higher purpose of burning man


as im seeing it.. its OK for people to be interested in their project, their thing at burning man.. but at some point it goes way off the chart into some other world whenever people talk about the whole 'this is what burning man is about' ...'higher purpose' or ..changing the world..

i dont think there is any higher purpose here.. and if there was, i certainly wouldnt want this guy to be the one who represents whatever purpose that is.. heck! this is exactly the type of person i wouldnt want representing a higher purpose.. we got enough self promotion types playing that schtick as it is: see the pink antichrist

I appreciate your sentiment Crypto, but simply put, I'm one of those people who:

* is lucky enough to live in the Bayeria and I'm surrounded daily by friends who actually work for BurningMan
* had my transformative moment because of Burning Man

So, the Burn is not a "vacation", it's every day for me.
And really, that's the "higher purpose", living out every day and NEVER allowing myself to stop putting out the good vibes.

The "Pink AntiChrist" has hugs, I have noses and we both carry them everywhere we go and give them out freely and with loving intent to as many people as possible.
I know they BOTH change lives, because on my end, I've seen it.
I've watched people turn their lives around and:

* become active in their local communities in projects that pull neighbors together for common goals of resource sharing
* change their view to one of altruism
* find their inner artist
* stop eating junk food and smoking
* learn to dance and exercise
* begin to fix challenged relationships
* get out of their houses and shells and find communities of Burners who now support them with love and family

..and all due to spending a few minutes with me after we met and I gave them a nose.
They keep up with me afterwards and I give them my time and energy and encouragement.
So, HELL YEAH! :lol:

Look, I didn't ask for this epiphany, but it fuckin' works, just like Halcyon and his hugs and his Pink Nation.
Yeah, I'm embracing it and I HOPE to join guys like Halcyon, or driven visionaries like Tom Price (Burners Without Borders/Black Rock Solar), etc. and really DO SOMETHING with my Playatime and lessons.

No, not originally.
It's changed though and has that potential everyday, everywhere.
If you're out there this year "on vacation", then you're a spectator.
And there ARE NO spectators. You ARE Burning Man.
I'd humbly suggest you place your spectator ticket into the hands of a veteran who wants to LIVE the experience :lol:

Hey, it worked for pink ribbons, why not red noses?

My advice: Do you thing and don't worry about the naysayers. It's a lot easier to find fault than to actually do something positive.

how presumptuous of you!

fuck yer day!!!

some of us choose to kick ass during our vacation, in fact, the kicking ass is part of what makes it a vacation.. you kno, buildin shit, workin on art, making kickass shit happen, being generally awesome and working on cool ass shit because ya love doing it..

now we have to have some higher purpose outside of burning man to be anything but a spectator at burning man? we have to have some twisted personal mission to change the world ?

new heights in burnier thou-ness!!

yer doin it wrong

fuck that.

id humbly suggest you fuck off with yer who is and who isnt a spectator bullshit and sell your assholio burnier than thou ticket to someone who isnt such a pretentious fucknut

but.. that wouldnt be so inclusive would it..

s0oo i guess it will just be another:

fuck yer day!!!
