2012 Ticket Destroyed!

Postby HotBurner » Tue Aug 07, 2012 3:44 am

There are no words to describe my rage! I just read this story on Burners.me with a video of a 2012 ticket being destroyed.

http://burners.me/2012/08/06/mr-bill-is ... this-year/

I've been looking for a ticket since the lottery happened, and this bastard just destroys one. WTF?! Not thinking about the artist or DJ that could have used that ticket to make Burning Man even better this year. Or even just a veteran Burner like me who lost out on the lottery, and might not able to go home this year.

I can't make any sense of it.

Here's the link to the video: https://vimeo.com/47008899

GRRRRRR!!!

Just think of this as one person misplacing their ticket and having to buy a replacement ticket. There are a small amount of tickets that get lost, eaten by pets, or just not used. If making this video was worth $320, then more power to him.

I like to remain an optimist and think that there will be one less car in line to leave. oh nooooo! :shock:

There were 1000 tickets on sale for the whole weekend. There are tons of at cost tickets on sale here and craigslist ... how can you not find a ticket but CAN find an obscure video of some douch nugget waisting his $320 and raising his views count?

He gets a bigger laugh with more views. Stop waisting time and helping spread his video, go find your ticket.

if you think those 1,000 tickets went to just anyone, think again.

there are no at-cost tickets on craigslist. i refuse to pay $1 more than face value out of principle. i'd rather not go than feed a scalper.

but maybe you were one of the chosen 'real burners' who received a BMorg-sanctioned ticket. or maybe you just got lucky like Mr. Bill.

Have you looked here on eplaya? There's plenty of them. Do you actually want to find a ticket or are you just here to bitch?? Was there a special selection process for the OPEN SALE that we were unaware of?

Heck, just don't be a complete jerk, I've been offered a few tickets to buy, even being a complete jerk. I skipped signing up for the 1000 because other Burners came through, people I have never met. And why is it always that DJs are doing it for the community, making it better (?) as if they aren't simply having fun for themselves? At least you didn't tell us you were gonna bless BRC with your prerecorded grooves.

Sounds like SOMEONE just wants attention. :roll:

I am not ABOUT to give some unoriginal performance artist the satisfaction of a page view. (As Junglesmacks mentions, somebody did this last year, too. And it looked like a well-done fake. There's a moment when the ticket drops ever so slightly out of frame, and when it's next seen the paper looks too flimsy. Anyway . . . we argued THAT one into the ground.)

And even if it's real . . . it's still his goddamned ticket.

Troll. The tickets offered board has more new posts than the tickets wanted. Sellers are starting to respond to wanted threads. Step tickets are passed up by steppers who already found tix.

How many of us vets predicted "tickets will become more plentiful as the event approaches"?

Definitely a troll, possibly even the same person who burned the ticket. Consider that their first ever post on eplaya was about the burned ticket.

Obviously you already have your ticket. Otherwise, you'd know that when you contact a person who has a ticket to offer at face-value (craigslist or eplaya) they're gone! So STFU.

That Mr Bill ticket was burnt to a crisp in that video and was not faked - unlike that other video where the ticket was dropped from frame. THAT is why I'm pissed off.

I've been a burner since 1999, and I'm tired of begging for a damn ticket. I've worked for DWP and gate crew. I've been a greeter and have worked at center camp. I've built art cars and participated in large theme camps.

This new ticket-begging culture is more than I can stand. Maybe it's okay for you yupsters and hipsters who are used to this type of begging for acceptance. So I leave it to you.

Hopefully, you'll meet each other and start dating and have babies who will be even worse douche bags than you all, leaving you to rot in a nursing home while they do whatever narcissistic children of narcissists do. It won't be very pleasant, but you will have earned it.

a confidential high level "anonymous source" said that this ticket had been voided and was burned by a "high level official", probably one of larry harveys team of butlers ..or maybe his life coach.

And no one helped you get a ticket? That's a tough one to figure. Wow, they sure do suck.

Shit bro, you got TROLLED like those dudes who stand out in line for an XBox 360 and some guy buys one just to destroy it. Owned bitch! I bet the ticket-burning troll is enjoying the flavor of your tears.
