While that video may be exciting to BM insiders, it is a perfect example on why the org should reach out to PR professionals in their network to help explain the event in a way that is digestible to the addressed audience (without spiking ticket demand).

It is an opportunity to reach out to key PnP participants who can and do operate in circles connected to DC.

Jesus, Larry sounds positively retarded. And you would think the BMOrg could afford a better dental plan rather than the medival English system they must now be using. Really, listening to The Hat, if he sounded any more stupid they would have to water him twice a week.

I thought he was cute. Three other people were interviewed as well, so I hope you keep watching.

Doug Taphouse. I helped a little with his giant toy project here in Silver Spring. It's how the playa sets people on fire.

the video is kinda like Larry's themes.


at first you think, "gee that's fucking stupid", then much later you realize it was brilliant and almost prescient.

Seriously. No offense to him, but as a guy that had exceedingly poor dental care as a child, there are solutions (that aren't dentures) that can fix all that shit up, pain free in just a couple visits. That mouth just gives me the creeps and really cannot be comfortable at all.

And he could easily afford it. All he'd have to do is raise the cost of tickets by $1.00

I'm no fan of the man, but I really have trouble with adding to the obsession with Mr. Harvey's supposedly 1%er lifestyle. Every year we get people attacking him for his wealth and exploitation of the burner population--at least in their over-heated imaginations. I'd rather not play that game.

It's very possible that if he were more polished, had a fine suit and a full mouthful of shiny white teeth, he would be a movie star or an investment banker and not the guy who started up this incredible festival.

I enjoyed watching the video of him (warts and all) because I got a chance to see the real man who has done more to change the world than most of us ever will. Just a regular Joe!

I truly have more respect for him and the BM gang than I did before. I think I'll go and watch that video again!

So those that cant count tickets are now skeezing with the ones that cant count votes.
Hope they don't start excanging budget ideas.

RIGHT ON, LARRY!

“Urban renewal? We’re qualified. We’ve built up and torn down cities for 20 years,” says Harvey. “Cities everywhere are calling for artists, and it’s a blank slate there, blocks and blocks. ... We want to extend the civil experiment — to see if business and art can coincide and not maim one another.”

Your president does as well, but I think he uses it as a rhetorical device.
