2012 Year of the Birgin

Fertility 2.0 - Black Rock City is a kind of Petri dish. Theme camps cling in fertile clusters to its latticework of streets, artworks tumble out of it, like pollen on the air. These nodes of interaction mutate, grow and reproduce their kind. Burning Man communities have now escaped this capsule world: our culture in a Petri dish has effloresced - it spreads across five continents. This year's art theme contemplates the tendency of any being or living system to create abundant life.

2012 Year of the Birgin

You're welcome to either interpret the theme in any way you choose, or to ignore the theme completely and do whatever you want with your art :)

Virgin Mary's flashing a mob at the temple! Cool, she needs to let her hair down.

Agreed, lemur. I don't even like "virgin". But this is not really a linguistic fight I want to take on.

Speaking of linguistic fights, it's Newb, not Noob.

Plus if we keep on the virgin track to marys to madonnas, don't we just end up at virgin suicides?

I am willing to bet that there will be no more newbies this burn than any other...

I would be nice if there were less Frat-types though....

Oh for Fuck Sake! Year of all these people who haven't yet been to the Playa. Happy now?

It's ePlaya not AP Playa.

Fuck it. I declare it to be Year of the Surly Burner.

:twisted:

There is much to be taught!

What? No more sunburned crispy critters wearing Chevy's hats ogling boobies and bragging about how many blow jobs (read: STDs) they've gotten?

Maybe?

Of course it's not AP Playa, that's a camp during Burn2 somewhere in the metaverse.

Now that sounds like a brilliant theme idea!

I always thought those where just people from California. I mean between the "Bro's" and "Hella's" and random Spanish phrases it just never seem really frat like to me. :roll:

Let's not change the "year of burgins/tourists", please... I already bought this t-shirt.
I also like the idea of setting up a tacky souvenir gift camp...

Hahaha! Less surly now that I've shaved the beard and buzzed the hair. I went from looking like Captain Ahab, to looking like Captain America overnight!
