Hey I'm Scott

Hey I'm Scott

Postby Thumbz » Mon Dec 10, 2012 7:59 pm

There was one topic in particular I wanted to discuss about Burningman, just to see if I'm the only one likes the idea for it. I tried bringing it up at at the Bman subreddit, but the only response I got was one guy saying "whatever man, burning man is about doing what you want," and so I gave up on it there. Kind of bummed me out too, still have a sour taste.

Anyways, I'm Scott, I like to groove, play games, meet good people, and other general human things. I program and make music in the my normal life, and my favorite color is green. Pleased to meet you all.

Once you reveal your idea: Someone will tell you it's already been done, but that that shouldn't discourage you.
Someone will tell you that they want to work on the project with you.
Someone will tell you that there's no way to properly tie down your idea and it will become an airborne danger to all.
Someone will tell you his/her favorite color.
Someone will tell you it doesn't fit the theme.
Someone will tell you not to pay for coffee in center camp.
Several people will give you a very hard time for being a dj.
Somebody will tell you not to use Kick Starter.
And someone will say, hatever man, burning man is about doing what you want.

Hey Scott! Welcome to the board. :D

My favorite color is also green.

Pretty much the first response I got. It was about whether or not there is such thing as too many fast blinking lights. I totally think there is, and I totally think they take away from the slow stroby kind, or the color changing, or just plain ol' fire. Also, the Aliens are never going to respect our attempts to bring them back if we use small fast blinking lights! They use soft static or slow strobing, you know, like tron.

Hi Scott!
Fishy also forgot to mention "You are doing it wrong!". Along with "Fuck yer Day.", "Safety Third" and "OhMyGodDidYouSee..."
Burners are a very diverse and extreme creatures, welcome to the Spectacle.

and just FYI Most aliens don't even share our Visual Spectrum, It's the DubStep that brings them.

How very strange, because I could have sworn the magic started fading its quickest as soon as dubstep hit the playa...

Stranger yet, I like my butter on top of the toast, and I believe this makes us enemies. Butter Side Up! Four Beats Down!

Scott yer kinda new here so I going to nice about this and clue you into a few things.
A. Changing someones Quote by adding things to it is un-cool
B. No one really gives a fuck who likes DubStep or Blinky Lights, 99% of us are adults that have lives outside of Burning Man, 'bout the only thing most of us do agree on is, "that life" is not as awesome as "TTITD.
C. Chose your enemies wisely and for good cause, alienating a potential ally over trivia will cost you when you are dealing with something more important like finding Backers for projects and snark buddies for messing with Trolls.

oh and just in case you are felling sad and schooled.
Fuck yer Day.

Having fun is totally cool. Referencing butter side battle in a trivial disagreement is even cooler.

And I'm really coming to the conclusion that ePlaya is not the burning man version of an internet forum, but really just the same disrespectful bunch of people I've come to expect from everywhere else. Which is fine, but that I really felt like a little burner community time. Well, here's to just waiting for the real thing :coffee: cheers.

Ah a judgmental jerk. Who is also stupid enough to cry about shiting where they expect to be fed.
Fuck your Day.

This only makes you seem more like an ass. I changed your quote to being about the side of toast you put butter on, in reference to a satire by dr suess on pointless wars.

..and I don't think it was the butter side uppers that got schooled in this scenario. Much the opposite.

Hey Thumbz,
Welcome to eplaya!

I'm a big fan of reds and burgundy.
And, I like buttered toast, and do not care which side its on.

Most likely, its not the same people that you seam to meet "everywhere else". Everywhere else is a really big place with a lot of different people.
So... Maybe, its worth reevaluating common denominator.....
