LEO has the most fundamental relationship with FIRE.
When confronted with challenges,
fire’s influence becomes obvious.
While others quit in the face of adversity,

LEOs are inspired by burning passion and enthusiasm.
Embrace fire’s positive qualities,
and always work towards achieving the goal.
Be aware of fire’s negative influence,
it can stir impatience and impulsivity.

Burning Man 2014 “Embrace” burns!

“You’re Fired.” (who said that?)

“Burn out the day! Burn out the night!
I can’t see no reason to put up a fight.
I’m living for givin’ the devil his due.
And I’m burnin’, I’m burnin’, I’m burnin’ for you!”

FIRE (definitions):

The fire person has leadership qualities, dynamic passion,
and is decisive, self-confident, positive, and assertive.
The direction associated with Fire is South, and the season is summer,
which makes it the fixed element for the animal signs Snake and Horse

The Snake:
Snake_(Chinese_characters)

Fire (Chinese: ; pinyin: huǒ) is the prosper of the matter,
or the matter’s prosperity stage, the second of the Wu Xing, the Five Phases.

In the regenerative cycle of Wu Xing, wood engenders Fire
as fire is generated by rubbing together two pieces of wood
and it must be fueled by burning wood;
Fire begets earth as fire reduces everything to ashes,
which become a part of the earth again.
In the conquest cycle, water overcomes Fire
as nothing will put out a fire as quickly as water. 
Fire overcomes metal as it can only be melted and forged by flame or heat.

45505013_2528518973841320_636321614178287616_n

Fire is yang in character. Its motion is upward and its energy is convective.

Fire is associated with the positive emotion of joy
and the negative emotion of hate.

Fire is associated with Summer, the South, the planet Mars and The Sun ,
the color red (associated with extreme luck), hot weather, daylight,
and the Vermilion Bird (Zhu Que)

Organs associated with the Fire element are the Heart (yin)
and small intestine (yang), the tongue and the body’s pulse.

“There’s a fire in my belly…. but it might just be supper.”

Fire attributes are considered to be dynamism, strength, and persistence;
however, it is also connected to restlessness.
The fire element provides warmth, enthusiasm, and creativity;
however, an excess of it can bring aggression, impatience, and impulsive behavior.
In the same way, fire provides heat and warmth; however, an excess can also burn.

Shadow of a Man – Total Eclipse 2017 in Madras, Oregon

“And the flame still burns
It’s there in my soul for that unfinished goal
And the flame still burns
From a glimmer of then, it lights up again”

Ruling Planet is THE SUN
The Sun, a sphere of hot plasma, is the star at the center of the solar system.

It reflects happiness and contentment, vitality, self-confidence and success.

The Temple Burns on Sunday at Burning Man 2017:

“Burn like Fire! Burn like Fire in Cairo!”

The Fire Knife Dance began in the ancient Polynesian demonstration of ailao,
a ceremonial performance of the Samoan warrior’s display of strength with a war club.
Fire dancing aka “poi spinning” began in the Maori’s war tradition in New Zealand.

It’s a Hawaiian Luau Tradition!
76327_175825915777316_7251868_n

Also called fire spinning, fire performance, fire twirling or fire manipulation.
Fire performance typically involves equipment or other objects
made with one or more wicks which are designed to sustain
a large enough flame to create a visual effect.

Not Burning Man 2021

Not Burning Man! Breaking News!
Black Rock Desert, Nevada – August 2021
TTITD? TOTITD? Or just a radical simulation?

00Camp Envy

People will be out on The Playa (Black Rock Desert, Nevada) again this year!
Many more people this year then were at the “Pretend Burn” last year most likely.
Last year, the whole world was deep into the COVID-19 Pandemic
and the BMorg told people not to go, but of course people went….

97039979_2516247011813489_6830277037605781504_n

So this year, people have forgotten about the Pandemic and want to go.
There is NO BURNING MAN this year.
There wasn’t time or anyway to sell tickets and everything else.
Too many unknowns and TOO MUCH LIABILITY. AND NO CASH TOO.
So, hopefully they will be able to have Burning Man 2022… but who knows?

“These rules are pretty specific.
It’s almost as if they know who’s showing up…”

Practice the “Ten Principles” and also Consent (“the eleventh principle”)
AND ALWAYS SAFETY THIRD!
Safety for OTHERS, Safety for PLACE AND PROPERTY,
and then SAFETY THIRD! (for yourself)

This letter is from Chelsea McKinney, Burning Man Project Manager from the
Bureau of Land Management, Winnemucca District, Black Rock Field Office
June 7, 2021
Good Morning,
You are being contacted because you have reached out with questions or you have submitted an application for a commercial or organized group Special Recreation Permit (SRP) to come out to the Black Rock Desert playa this summer.
I am writing to inform you that the Bureau of Land Management, Winnemucca District, Black Rock Field Office (BLM), has made decisions regarding the activities mentioned above. These decisions have been made with Public Health and Safety, and Resource Protection in mind, and we hope that you all and other visitors will respect these decisions. The decisions are:
No Organized Group SRPs will be authorized/issued.
People are still welcome to visit the Black Rock Desert playa and camp.
No Commercial/Vending SRPs will be authorized/issued. Camps must be self-sufficient. No deliveries, or services will be authorized. This includes porta-potties. Camps can get their own toilets, off of public land, and bring them out themselves, then return them. This must all be done by someone in your camp. No pumping services will be authorized.
The BLM will also be implementing Temporary Restrictions of the playa.
These restrictions include:

Please use best judgement and know your limits. The BLM wants visitors to have a good time when visiting public land but we want you to be safe. Be aware that Emergency Services (medical, fire, law enforcement) are limited around the area.
I want to thank you all for reaching out and being responsible recreationists. I hope to see you out on the Black Rock Desert playa this summer. If you have questions please email me to schedule a time to talk. Thank you.

As per The Bureau of Land Management in Nevada website:

Responsible recreation is essential to ensure your public lands remain open to multiple uses. Please remember to stay on existing routes and practice “Leave No Trace” principles while enjoying your public lands.

Nevada’s public lands are open to camping. There is no fee for dispersed, primitive camping, but there is a limit to the number of days one may camp in the same location. Dispersed, primitive camping is camping where there are no developed amenities such as water or toilets. Primitive campers are asked to follow the “Leave No Trace” land use ethics. Dispersed camping in a motorhome is allowed, but dumping black or gray water on public lands isn’t allowed. Some campground are established that requires a fee to manage it.

A person may not occupy undeveloped public lands or designated sites or areas for more than 14 days within a 28 consecutive day period.
Following the 14 days, a person and their personal property must relocate to a site outside of at least a 25 mile radius from the occupied site for a period of 14 days.

The following Travel Guidelines have been developed for travelers entering, departing, or returning to the State of Nevada. Traveler must follow state and local requirements, and at a minimum, avoid large indoor gatherings, maintain social distancing, and always wear a face covering.

You should NOT travel if you fall into any of the following categories:

  • Have tested positive for COVID-19 and have not yet recovered
  • Have been presumptuously diagnosed with COVID-19
  • Are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms
  • Have been potentially exposed to someone who is positive for COVID-19

IF you travel, make sure to do the following:

  • Avoid close contact by staying at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from anyone who is not from your household
  • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol)
  • Avoid contact with anyone who is sick
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Cover coughs and sneezes

Before you decide to travel to or from Nevada, do an assessment of the following:

  • Do you live with someone who might be more likely to get very ill from COVID-19? If you get infected while traveling, you can spread the virus to loved ones when you return, even if you don’t have symptoms.
  • Are you more likely to get very ill from COVID-19? Anyone can get very ill from the virus that causes COVID-19, but older adults and people of any age with certain underlying medical conditions are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

Sunday, Temple Burn 2017
bm2017

Come on, baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire


YUPDATED: Friday, June 11, 2021 – 2:00am
We just ripped this pic from P. Mackey (who took this pic earlier today)
The Playa on Thursday, June 10, 2021
198121969_10165585243240372_8333245388749787511_n

Some “beginner” guidelines to get you started::
Please consult the Burning Man website for THE SURVIVAL GUIDE and other info.
There are some “rules and regulations” and even some LAWS that you need to know.
WE ARE NOT AN ATTORNEY.
THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE! Consult a licensed attorney.

Never burn anything directly on The Playa surface!
Use a Burn Platform or Burn Barrel for all pyrotechnics.
And technically you are not allowed to burn anything this year (as per the BLM)

Store fuel safely! Separate Fuel Safe Containment is required!
Make sure everything is ventilated properly!
(generators, fuel storage, cooking equipment, etc.)
Have charged fire-extinguishers and other fire-fighting equipment in your camp.

LEAVE NO TRACE! Pack it in, pack it out. LEAVE NO MOOP! (Matter Out Of Place)
There are no trash cans in the Black Rock Desert. Don’t let anything hit the ground.
Refer to the Burning Man website for more about LNT (Leave No Trace) and MOOP.

DON’T PEE OR POOP ON THE PLAYA! Seriously. Prepare for bodily functions.
It’s against the law to urinate/defecate on The Playa! There are serious FINES if caught!
Also, it’s fucking GROSS and OFFENSIVE and INCONSIDERATE, so don’t do it PLEASE.

Dispose of all fluids and materials, including gray water, by the appropriate means.
Again, DO NOT DUMP ON THE PLAYA! Evaporate Grey water properly.
Take the rest with you.

Drive safely and at a reasonable speed for the conditions.
Don’t drive erratically, ride on the roof or hang off the side of your vehicle.
DO NOT DRIVE WHILE INTOXICATED!  (“Buzzed” Driving is Drunk Driving!)

DON’T DRIVE ON WET PLAYA!
If it rains, do not drive until The Playa is completely dry.
Do not get stuck in The Playa Mud
it doesn’t just wash off and you may not recover your vehicle.
Towing from The Playa can get into the THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS
(if you can get a tow truck to come out on The Playa,
most warranties and/or services end at the highway and they won’t service you)

Secure your load, inspect your trailer, have a backup plan.
EXERCISE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN TRAVELING TO AND FROM THE PLAYA!
Obey all Traffic Laws and Vehicle Regulations! YOU MAY STILL BE PULLED OVER!
Nevada State Police, Reservation Police, Bureau of Land Management Police,
the FEDS, and other LEOs are just looking for a reason…..  DON’T GIVE THEM ONE!
Fines are high for all violations. You don’t want to go to jail in Nevada.
In the past they have harassed, searched, sniffed, and arrested Burners
using questionable and sometimes illegal tactics.
If you are stopped REMAIN SILENT!
DO NOT CONSENT TO SEARCH (even if you’re clean)
If you are searched GET NAMES AND BADGE NUMBERS!
They must identify themselves!
Get it on video if you can without antagonizing the situation!
USE THE ACLU APP!
If you are arrested: REMAIN SILENT! ASK FOR AN ATTORNEY!
Just STFU! Do not talk to officers. DO NOT TALK TO OFFICERS!
Once you are arrested
“ANYTHING YOU SAY, CAN AND WILL BE USED AGAINST YOU!”
CONTACT AN ATTORNEY! ASK FOR AN ATTORNEY!
They cannot ask you anything else after that. REMAIN SILENT!
And do not try to talk your way out, it doesn’t work.
They want you to incriminate yourself.
DO NOT LIE TO LAW ENFORCEMENT! REMAIN SILENT!
ASK IF YOU ARE UNDER ARREST!
ASK IF YOU ARE FREE TO GO!
If they say no, ASK IF YOU ARE UNDER ARREST!
REPEAT UNTIL THEY ARREST YOU OR LET YOU GO! REMAIN SILENT!
“I have been advised to remain silent. Am I under arrest? Am I free to go?”

Bring everything you need for RADICAL SELF RELIANCE and SURVIVAL!
The Nevada Desert can kill you.  Emergency Services are limited.
A HOSPITAL IS FAR AWAY!  If you are seriously injured you could die.
Have Medical and Travel Insurance for Medical Evacuation (by helicopter)!
Refer to the Burning Man SURVIVAL GUIDE for more info about NOT DYING.
1-2 Gallons of WATER per Person per Day is REQUIRED for SURVIVAL
Bring it with you! Use it wisely! STAY HYDRATED! PISS CLEAR!
Food. Shelter from the Elements – THE BLACK ROCK DESERT IS NO JOKE.
(SUN, EXTEME HEAT, WIND, WIND STORMS,
FREEZING COLD, PLAYA DUST, AND RAIN!
Prepare for the worst, you will probably experience it during your vacation.
Have FUN. Don’t die.

Another UPDATE: Wednesday August 11, 2021:

222973142_10224051545609451_3553569574434369896_n

And if you’re still going to Northern Nevada,
expect SMOKE from the California and Oregon Wildfires!
AND THE COVID-19 DELTA VARIANT IS STILL SPREADING!

NOT BURNING MAN SUCKS. DON’T GO.

Burning Man 2014 – Wake of the Flood on Monday



UPDATE Wednesday, August 18, 2021
For anyone going to the Black Rock Desert this month, be aware of these things:
– The Smoke from Fires in California and Oregon will impact your experience.
– The lack of infrastructure and contracted law enforcement,
porta-potties, and medical services.
– Cell reception is BAD.
You may be out of contact or have limited service on The Playa.
– The nearest Trauma-II Hospital is 141 miles away and a 3+ hour drive to Reno.

The Bureau of Land Management has published temporary restrictions, regulations,
and rules that will be in effect until October 31, 2021 to prevent Burning Man events.
If you are going to the Black Rock Desert, make sure you read and review the rules.

The Playa from the 8 Mile Gate Entrance today:
(pic by the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office)
Note: No Black Rock Mountains visible!
237003178_10157999283626611_4691422253809444854_n
We won’t be there. But have a good time if you go. Don’t die.

The end of the road….



CORONAVIRUS! Part 18 – Easter Weekend!

CORONAVIRUS! Part 18 – Easter Weekend!

Saturday, April 11, 2020 
Taking the day off from Blogging the TRUMP CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC crisis.
and It’s National Pet Day!

51911371_2690385244321358_6712588053157773312_n

National Pet Day! My Quarantine Buddies!

STAY HOME! – STAY HEALTHY!
DON’T PANIC! – REMAIN CALM!

AND GO WASH YOUR HANDS!

3:00pm – After we woke up last night, we were up most of the early AM. We finally fell asleep, but had to wake up for the dog’s morning feeding. Took care of that and went back to bed…. slept until about 11am. We are still very much on edge emotionally.

It’s a beautiful day here in the San Fernando Valley and we’re not going to worry about sh*t right now…. NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS FOR REAL!
There was a little something in the NY Times about Trump today……

Spent time in the backyard with the dogs and then totally cleaned and sterilized the kitchen. We ate leftover pizza around 5pm (call it lunch).
Fed and played with the dogs of course.

7:30pm One More Saturday Night! (started at 5:30pm, replay available on youtube)
Tonights concert: Dead&Co. 11-14-17 Madison Square Garden in NYC
Nugs is replaying Dead&Co concerts from the past every Saturday night as a Fundraiser for MusiCares COVID-19 Relief to aid musicians affected by the CoronaVirus Pandemic.

AND ANOTHER DAY IS DONE…. Hey Saturday Night!

8-9:00pm And then we joined a “ZOOM around the burn barrel”
with Professor Pickle (and a real burn barrel with real fire)
and two other peeps for an hour of Burner socializing online!
Screen Shot 2020-04-11 at 20.50.01
That is us on ZOOM on Saturday night from the Home Office in Los Angeles.
And it was LIVE with human beings, and also fun and entertaining!
Our third ZOOM experience, so amazingly weird… wearing our burner hat.

NOTE: This is a whole new world of internet participation.
And so we are considering clearing our back desk and creating a scenic background.
Or just go with the virtual background (if we can figure out how to do that)?

FACIAL COVERING IN PUBLIC IS MANDATORY NOW!

 

And we ate some of the leftover Chinese food for dinner around 11pm.

“Leftover pizza for lunch. Leftover Chinese food for dinner.
Leftover is the Jewish holiday that comes after Passover.”

DO THE FIVE – HELP STOP CORONAVIRUS!
1 – HANDS – Wash them often
2 – ELBOW (OR SLEEVE) – Cough into it
3 – FACE – Don’t touch it
4 – SPACE – Keep safe distance (6 feet or more)
5 – HOME – Stay home if you can (or if it’s mandatory)

Sunday, April 12, 2020 – HAPPY EASTER SUNDAY!

Woke up at 3:30am, so we slept maybe an hour and a half, and now it’s 5:40am.
I HAVE RISEN! Did a little youtube viewing in the past 2 hours.
We were considering going to the Supermarket…
There is a list of stuff to get, but we have everything we need to go another day,
and the Supermarket will still be there tomorrow (most likely, but no longer 100%).
So, now the decision must be made…. and NO. We are not going today.
We will face the paranoia tomorrow or Tuesday morning and venture out later.
Today we will chill with the dogs again.

“Conan the Barbarian” with Arnold was just starting this morning!
A film about killing false prophets…how appropriate.
And Conan gets crucified and resurrected too!

Conan barbarian

Arnold as Conan the Barbarian

We also watched and HIGHLY RECOMMEND
the “Saturday Night Passover Seder”

THIS WAS INCREDIBLE!
You don’t have to be Jewish to love this.
Happy Passover everyone!

5:00pm – Recap the afternoon, shall we?
So, we played with dogs inside and outside.
We did a little “Spring cleaning” at the Home Office.
We did a little “gardening” outside too.
Yesterday was beautiful with blue skies.
Today was just overcast and “gray all day” in L.A.

57710697_10218643250256252_6133730477174947840_n

We had a toasted bagel with cream cheese, orange juice and an espresso for breakfast this morning, and we had a bite of leftover orange beef and a bite of brownie around 4pm.
And we are drinking another espresso while writing this with one dog at our feet and two asleep on the bed. Our big dog is hanging out somewhere else today.

92592672_3575650262461514_4941532647697416192_o

7:00pm We fell asleep with the dogs for an hour and a half.
Woke up and fed the dogs and took them outside.

Easter Dinner for one.
On The Menu: Leftover Chinese food (day 2) – Orange beef and fried rice with an iced espresso. And then we baked banana bread. Mmmmmm….Banana Bread!

And….. “Always Look On The Bright Side of Life!”

Just a quick reminder:

DONALD TRUMP on
February 26, 2020:
“The 15 (cases in the US) within a couple of days
is going to be down to close to zero.”
and
“We’re going very substantially down, not up.”

March 9: “This blindsided the world.”

March 13: “I take no responsibility.” (YES HE REALLY SAID IT!)

Screen Shot 2020-04-13 at 06.52.06

115000+ Reported Deaths as of Monday, April 13, 2020 at 6:20am PST

EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! – EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! –
EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! – EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! –
EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! – EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE!

Trump was briefed about Coronavirus almost 3 months ago!
He called it a hoax, a conspiracy theory, and then chose to ignore and lie about it!
TOTAL FAILURE! Trump fired the NSC Pandemic Team in 2018!

90718743_10163021176060702_8798179714888892416_o

Why did the United States refuse the World Heath Organization test kits?
Why did the Trump Administration wait to act?
Why did the Trump Administration tell the Washington state doctors not to test?
Why did the GOP Republicans call it a “Democratic Hoax?”
Why didn’t the CDC test kits work?
Why did they wait to get new test kits from Roche? (~400000 available soon)
Why did he put Mike Pence in charge?

THERE IS NO POSITIVE SPIN FOR A GLOBAL PANDEMIC AND THE TOTAL FAILURE OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC HEALTH!
THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION HAS FAILED TO PROTECT THE UNITED STATES!

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
DO NOT FOLLOW MEDICAL ADVICE FROM TRUMP! HE IS NOT A DOCTOR!

If you or someone you know is having suicidal thoughts, get help right away!
Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (800-273-8255) to reach a trained counselor and press 1 to reach the Veterans Crisis Line.
You can also chat with them online at suicidepreventionlifeline.org/chat/.

If you text 741741 when you are feeling depressed, suicidal or anxious, a crisis worker will text you back and continue to text with you? Many people, especially younger folks, do not like talking on the phone and would be more comfortable texting. It’s a free service to ANYONE teens, adults, etc. who lives in the U.S. It’s run by The Crisis Text Line and is legit.

Black Rock City, Black Rock Desert – Google Maps (for education use)

Every year, thousands gather in the Nevada desert to erect a vivid temporary city devoted to art, community & 10 guiding principles including “radical self-expression.” – Wikipedia

BIG THANKS TO CAMP ENVY and @MotorBikeMatt for the stream!

The Man Burns in 2014!

Once a year, tens of thousands of people gather in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to create Black Rock City, a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. In this crucible of creativity, all are welcome……
Burning Man isn’t your usual festival. It’s a city wherein almost everything that happens is created entirely by its citizens, who are active participants in the experience.

Burning Man 2018! “They’re combing the desert!”

bm25

1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
— Isaac Asimov, I, Robot

LAST YEAR WAS BETTER…. but we decided long ago that we weren’t going in 2018 and other circumstances have also prevented a possible last minute “grab and go” adventure.
37131115_2342649432428276_5320686905979830272_n

This year’s Burning Man began with a huge BUMMER!

August 21, 2018 Statement on Police Activity on the Road to BRC:
The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), an agency of the U.S. Department of the Interior, is conducting intensive law enforcement operations on Highway 447 in Wadsworth and Nixon. Many of these stops progress into lengthy vehicle searches, and they are using dogs to inspect vehicles. We’ve been told this operation will continue throughout the week and possibly into next week, when the Burning Man event is officially underway….

“U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) officers are stopping many vehicles traveling to the event. Reasons provided by officers for the traffic stops include: speeding, going too slow, not stopping at stop signs, crossing the centerline or even a tire touching the centerline, partially obscured license plates, and dim or non-functioning tail lights. These stops often involve police dogs and lengthy searches of vehicles. Many of our staff and volunteers report they were not breaking any traffic laws, but were stopped anyway.”
from The Jackrabbit Speaks, August 22nd, 2018

NOTE: As of September 14th, “The largest art car at Burning Man, a partially reassembled 747 airplane, remains parked on the Black Rock Desert two weeks after the event. The plane was moved further into the hard-packed playa about 12 miles away from the Burning Man site, said Rudy Evenson, acting communications chief of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management in Nevada.” – Reno Gazette Journal

UPDATE: The plane was eventually moved to private land near the Black Rock Desert where it currently sits waiting for next year….

Harvey

Burning Man co-founder Larry Harvey wrote the Ten Principles in 2004

The 10 Principles of Burning Man

Radical Inclusion
Anyone may be a part of Burning Man. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.

Gifting
Burning Man is devoted to acts of gift giving. The value of a gift is unconditional. Gifting does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value.

Decommodification
In order to preserve the spirit of gifting, our community seeks to create social environments that are unmediated by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. We stand ready to protect our culture from such exploitation. We resist the substitution of consumption for participatory experience.

Radical Self-reliance
Burning Man encourages the individual to discover, exercise and rely on his or her inner resources.

Radical Self-expression
Radical self-expression arises from the unique gifts of the individual. No one other than the individual or a collaborating group can determine its content. It is offered as a gift to others. In this spirit, the giver should respect the rights and liberties of the recipient.

Communal Effort
Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration. We strive to produce, promote and protect social networks, public spaces, works of art, and methods of communication that support such interaction.

Civic Responsibility
We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavor to communicate civic responsibilities to participants. They must also assume responsibility for conducting events in accordance with local, state and federal laws.

Leaving No Trace
Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.

Participation
Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in society, can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play. We make the world real through actions that open the heart.

Immediacy
Immediate experience is, in many ways, the most important touchstone of value in our culture. We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves, the reality of those around us, participation in society, and contact with a natural world exceeding human powers. No idea can substitute for this experience.

Burning Man 2014 – The Temple Burn Epic Fail & More Playa Pics!

So disappointed with the ustream feed! The Man burned Saturday night and as per my previous blog it was a total failure. I was hopeful the Temple Burn on Sunday would be better.  It wasn’t, it was worse.

Burning Man 2014 - The Temple

Burning Man 2014 – The Temple

The Temple Burn Epic Fail

First, the music on the audio stream was incredibly inappropriate! Temple burn is a solemn ceremony, and the DJ showed ZERO RESPECT! I can’t even express how disrespectful it was. The DJ was even asking for listeners on the playa to bring him “a tasty adult beverage” on air during the Temple burn.  I hope karma finds him for his massive failure.

Second, the camera was zoomed out and out of focus, and the Temple burn was a little orange spot, even on my large monitor. They should use some of that Silicon Valley money and invest in decent broadcast equipment, coverage, and trained operators. FOCUS!!!!!
