Fertility 2.0 - The street names of 2012

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.

You were all wrong! None of you got a single one right! I would also say that almost every one of your ePlayan ideas was more inspired than what we ended up with. Has the B'Morg lost it's balls? Certainly looks that way.....at least the C street could have been Cannibus....crikey, am I going to Disneyland????

Holy crap! I'm not liking all the reserved areas!!
Looks like my camp might be pushed out to the very edge of the city, if I want to stay on the same spoke I've been on for the last 4 years.

RIGHT?! For a year with peak theme camp fragmentation, that's a shit ton of reserved areas.

Possibly due to so many theme camps being "registered" for this year in attempt at directed distribution tickets?

It doesn't look like substantially more area than 2011:

They just tapered them like petals. How clever of them!

I actually like the idea of pushing more registered theme camp out into the boondocks and spreading the activities throught the city.

Fishy I litterly said "columbine?" out loud when a friend posted the lay out a few minute ago on facebook. Very very odd name.

I suppose if we go to extra streets Morning Glory will win out over Marigold. Not sure what's possible for N, other than Nasturcium.

And I'd rather I was going to be on Azelea than Alyssum. Ah well, we'll be calling it a$$hole anyway...

Considering that the anti-establishment has become the establishment - at least, in the art world - i would suggest that these names are quite daring ......

I think you may have meant to link to the 2011 city plan: http://www.burningman.com/preparation/maps/11_maps/

Comparing the two side by side, it looks like they just shifted the brunt of the reserved areas to the front while increasing the area behind ring road.

And at the center we're supposed to show up as freakin bees.

Dubious fertility rites, bees, burning effigy. At this point we should all just dress up as Nicholas Cage in a bear suit and reenact the Wicker Man.

It just occurred to me that the flower street names = continuation of bee theme.

They should that place is gross.
And sorry you feel it is "attention whoring" This is just how I feel about the name and why. Geesh.

And yeah guess it does play with the bee theme. So would that make Larry the queen bee and all of us workers? Buzzzzz

I'm just going to assume that's slang for orgy. Now I know where to send all the single guys looking for the orgy tents.

I'd have rather enjoyed "ammonia, biomass, compost, dirt..." Oh, well. I imagine I"ll mostly just refer to them all by the letters anyway, rather than memorize an alphabetical series of apparently random flower names. Or maybe I'll learn the "asshole, balls, cock..." series that y'all seem to use.

Hmmm... there's a mischievous imp telling me what fun it would be to replace the all flower names on the street signs with corresponding flower pictures. People who can identify flowers on sight would suddenly become very popular :)

Random aside: I loathe begonias and geraniums (not for any deep reasons -- I just think they're gross). Why not buttercup and goldenrod?
