Shitty art is still art!

The difference being that I can get away from visually shitty art, but not aurally shitty art!!! :x

Don't fall into the Trap trap!

Step back into the House, preferably in the Deep part of the house early in the night, the get Electro-field l8r on.

But, in all seriousness, even though I am _not_ one of the 4 non-DJs, I still have to agree: BM is a radical art & self reliance event, where we should have some DJs to make a nice party - not the reverse.

Decent music playa-wide died years ago when everyone switched from desert breaks to dubstep...

Even if the lineup was correct, and timely, they are all just playing dubstep anyways, so it really dosn't matter who you go & see.

Last three years I've had a handful of really good dancing experiences to unknown DJs, anything bigname is just a disappointment as the um superficial crowds take up the sweetspots prancing in circles and the soundsystems are, while large, horribly out of tune/clipping.

Best sound on playa is usually the little psytrance camp off at 10' & End of the Line.... Pure High Fidelity Quadraphonic with an all emersive experience..... even if you don't like psytrance try & seek them out and compare the sound to any of the camps on the corners.

TLDR;
Kids will listen to shit these days, so it really dosn't matter.

i'm pretty old to be a raver, i'm 49, but, Disco has been around as long as i have, and EDM is TECHNO, people, even though eminem claims nobody listens to it anymore.

my hope is for Balance...

in the past few years, as the wave of "Rave" popularity rolled over and around us, the playa has become a focal point, a proving ground for DJ's and producers.

we are Important in that manner, believe me, EVERY motherfucking DJ worth his salt wants to say he's played some big stage at Burning Man, it gives them instant street cred.

this chum in the water also draws the sharks.

i know who they are, and where they swim, and as a lifeguard of sorts, i only want to make sure that they do not attempt to eat the event, in many ways, large and small.

the LSC (large scale sound) need to respect these boundaries, and NOT ALLOW DEFAULTIA BUSINESS onto the playa...pretend it's a party for you and your friends, not how can we pump up the new talent, or where can we not so secretly place mounds of product that have been "donated" to us..



i will name no names, you know who you are.


keep that shit outta Black Rock, it does not belong on the dust.


and try to do something other than pills and nitrous all week and for god's sake, GO OUT AND VISIT THE REST OF THE FUCKING CITY, dont just flutter between 10 and 2 every goddamn night.

am i shitting on the rave camps? No...i'm warning you, my friends and comrades in sub-woofers, that you must check yourselves before you wreck ourselves...


it's not a fucking dirt rave, it's a fucking ART PICNIC w Music and dancing.

participation is not shuffling from one superstar dj's set to the next....that is Coach- Hell-a

THIS IS BURNING MAN

so act accordingly.

thank you, i will get off of my 120 BPM soapbox.

I will prolly be doing it wrong :wink:

oh, you mean the possible classification change as to allow Nevada to call it entertainment and hence tax it at nearly double than it is now?

the publication of pre-sched set lists of superstar DJs is convenient, however, it also implies that this is not an art festival, but a music festival.



it is not.



let's not give them any reason to think otherwise AND stick to the notion of immediacy.....whatever happened to the thrill of Surprise?

i think that all concerned are trying to not publish until the very last minute, which is great.



but it would be nice to have to drag my ass ALL THE WAY OVER to wherever it is to find a board where the dj set lists are written in crayon and sharpie....

it's more exciting...

Actually, I hear that a new genre will debut out there this year. It's a combination of minimal and house, called shack.

I fear for the day of Burning Man joining the ranks of the "transformational festival circuit" along with Symbiosis, Sonic Bloom, et. al. The folks already speak of Burning Man as if it's some kind of transformational-hippie-rave-mecca... at least they are too busy selling pretty rocks (spirit stones) and shitty-smelling homemade incense rather than actually attempting to put the trip together. Those festi-kids are among the most worthless people I've ever met in my entire life. Can talk your ear off about absolutely nothing (the spiritual machine manifests within all of us in it's own earth-goddess), will try to sell you useless shit in a vain attempt to seem worldly, and then will drive off after stealing your gear.

I always laugh reading the taglines for those fests and seeing all the Venice-Beach-Rich-Parents-but-I'm-so-poor-and-worldly Hipsters eat up the hilariously written "spiritual" garbage like flies on shit.

Anyone want to form EMP Camp?

Enough power could silence anything unshielded for some distance.
I suppose it could make some people cranky though.

Acoustic music would be audible again though.
