I'm a burner, so fuck you.

Postby uncle sticky » Mon Mar 25, 2013 11:17 pm

Trolling on the subject line, yes, but an actual comment/discussion point about burning and how it affects your life, and how your life affects burning. I started going in 2004, and skipped only last year. I notice that I went from wide eyed newbie, got really into a lot of peace and love, open heart kind of attitude. I cross-dressed a lot, did a lot of fun projects to share, basically just skipped around like an e-tard hugging everyone. Burning Man gave me the freedom to be whomever and whatever I wanted, and I ran around and experienced that.

9 years later, and my burns are different. I make more stuff, and am probably more deeply involved in the projects I tackle. More to the point, my burner philosophy is darker, more edgy, angrier. I still feel like I can be whatever I want, but I don't want to be a unicorn, I want to be Danzig. Wedding dresses and skirts have given way to some kind of ninja gunslinger cosplay sort of thing. Art and theme camps are driven by the idea that there isn't enough hostility on the playa anymore. I cherish the idea of some sparkle pony being coming into my camp and being dismayed at the grittiness.

I know I'm getting older (46), and grumpier, and less tolerant of the same kind of enlightened silliness I once believed in, and I'm certainly not bitter, just embracing my darker animal side.

How has your perspective, attitude, on-playa persona/fantasy changed over the years.

It appears that uncle sticky is evolving from idealistic to realistic. I heard that heading toward 50 will do that to you. 8)

dear Mr. Sticky.

it appears you have used my trademarked slogan, and i have not received any notification, let alone royalties.

every time you say "go fuck yourself" or "fuck you" you owe me a nickel.


now cough up, poseur, and please, go find your own tag line.

Can I be Gdansk? Because I love slavic names.
Or maybe I'll be Finntroll. Go Balts!

And if people didn't evolve into crusty old burners, the sparkleponys would be helplessly wandering around in circles as the playa mud made their platforms ever higher and matted into their feathers.

Sour are the Grapes of Wrath,
in mindless mobs the go.
Never in a thousand years,
Will their rabble harsh my flow.

For you see, I'm a burner.
And what that really means;
my art, my heart, my soul,
are crafted out of dreams.

there's nothing I can do for you
when your radiance dims.
Except pour gas on you,
and light you up again.

on further staring, and OCD, I'd disagree MDF. when Daffy's hand goes by, it turns to "rabbit season" and conversely, with Bugs. if my eyes work, that is.
