Give Thanks Temple Burn - 2008

Free TV Show from Ustream

Tonight in Black Rock City the temple will be burned to honor those in the community who have passed on. This night is one of remembrance, reflection and grace.

At the same time participants convene for the temple burn on the playa, members of the burner community in Los Angeles meet at a private party to join them in spirit. This livestream is from this party.

Starting now (see the timestamped on this blog post), BURNcast.tv is livestreaming until it's over.

Playa Postcard #1

From: Bo
To: DaBomb
Subject: Playa Postcard

Dear Bomb,

Seems the mortgage crises has hit the playa this year as evidenced by big plots of real estate on esplanade that are sparsely populated. The org has lined the entrance to the center camp with their departments so very little art on the way into 6:00 except for a huge and fantastic fire weeble wobble flibbity flobbidy or something like that. The playa is connected as you say. I'm here in Center camp and have no idea where i'm getting internet. But it works. Owwee. Modernity!!!

Center camp is now charging $4.00 for a latte. When I asked the woman behind the counter for cream, she seriously said to me "do you think this is Starbucks?" At that price yes. She was a real bitch and said she'd been going to Burningman for 8 years and they never have cream (this is not true, I know) and that she had the right to talk to me like this because she was behind the right side of the counter. She either had never been to Burningman before based on her bad attitude, she was sadly cracked out or she needed to take a break. Whatev! The smell of burnt martyrs coming from the cafe is worse than hippy patchuli because the entire cafe staff is worst than DPW. they keep asking for tips and saying they are working so hard and sacrificing their burn by doing it. Good grief. The Amer-i-can dream andnl still people hate their job. Chai is right! FREE CHAI!!!!!!!!!!!! eyaaaaaaa!!!!!!!! I'll go get better tasting coffee with less abuse from another camp.

So you know about the dust on Monday. It hopefully is all over. You would have hated it. Its Firday and the city is electric. Anyway toots. I love you!!!!!

Time Out

Hey there playa peops!

Just wanted to dash off this post to say I'm taking the next few days off from blogging and vlogging (and flogging, too). I just need a break! Tribe is dead, everybody's gone and frankly I need to take are of some stuff before we livestream "Burn Without the Bother" next Saturday night.

"Burn Without the Bother" is going to be a private party of other burners in the community (drink!) who have decided to attending Burning Man this year. We'll be getting together at a gorgeous house in the Hollywood Hills and watch the live simulcast of burn night on Current TV.

You'll be able to watch our livestream at this link: http://ustream.tv/burncast

More information will be forthcoming later this week, so stay tuned!

Remembering Otto

From Random Lee Kind:

"The Sunday night temple burn at Burningman is a really beautiful and powerful ritual of the community to remember loved ones lost in the previous year and more importantly, to let go of their loss in the metaphor of an all consuming fire. It will be made all the more powerful by gathering Friends of Otto together in one place.

So if you’re making it up to the desert this year, please come together to remember Otto and send lots of love and good vibes high into the night sky of the desert.

We’ll be gathering in front of the Garage Mahal art car prior to and during the Temple Burn for a communal goodbye."

Happy Tutu-Tuesday!

Hey there all you BURNcast audio podcast fans...listen up!

It's DaBomb here and I still have many recordings to serve up from Burning Man 2007 that I'm just not going to get to before y'all leave for the playa this year. For one, Lecter was out of town last week and he's going to be on the playa next week and Lecter...dear Lecter...he does all the uploading of the podcasts to iTunes.

If your next questions is "when *will* you have those audio podasts ready?" I have to say I have no clue.

I'll get to them sometime after the burn but for right now I'm focusing on these vidcasts. Keep your subscriptions in iTunes updated for the podcasts and I'll load them sometime after the event. Combined with Katherine the Great's recordings from this year's burn and we should have another series of episodes before we finally shut the audio podcasts down for good.

OK...for all of you that are leaving for the playa I hope you rock your burn!

PleasureSean's Playa Guide

This just in from PleasureSean:

"Well, it turns out a couple of people are going to Burningman after all. So here's my totally opionated guide to what looks like good music (and some art) up there this year. There's obviously a ton of stuff I don't know about as there are like 1,000 parties going on at once, so it's always a wise choice to explore to your hearts content, but these camps are going to be a better bet than most I'd say music wise.

And remember (1) pretty much no moonlight at all during the night this year, so bring extra flashlights and light up your bike so you don't get run over, and (2) it was a drought again last year, so it's going to be dusty like last year – bring goggles and a breathing mask for when it gets ridiculous, and (3) the drive up and back is the most dangerous part of the whole thing – please remember to be careful.

Oh - and usually some additional info comes in after I send this out, so I'll probably update this with tidbits of new info and park it on my website here...

PleasureSeans Playa Guide 2008

if you want to download it before you leave. The Acrobat version prints out a lot better too.

See ya at the beach.




A few art pieces/events some friends are involved in that you should not/will not miss:
- Tantalus – Hudzo's (from the swinging Monkey piece last year) newest stroboscopic art piece with an American theme twist
- Black Rock City Ballet (7:30 & Esplanade) – performance stage with dancers from San Francisco Ballet, Smuin Ballet, Sacramento Ballet, and San Jose Ballet. I understand the performances will be classical dance pieces performed from sunset to about midnight daily (but check at the stage about times) = very, very nice.
- Mutopia – The Flaming Lotus Girls do it again. About the size and scale of the Serpent Mother – look for the huge metal sculpture with flames coming out of it.
- Elevation by Michael Christian and crew – 54 foot climb-able pyramid sculpture.
- Altered States by Kate Raudenbush – sculpture resembles the top of the Capital in Washington DC


Deep End (9:00 & F)
House & progressive house music – massive Ibiza style day party with an open bar. Those involved say it is their last year on the playa so it will be even more completely nutso...in a good way. DJ schedule at http://www.thedeependcamp.com/music/line_up_2008.htm

Pink Mammoth (8:30 & F)
Deep house music for dancing the afternoon away – a bit less hectic than the Deep End, both are good and are close to each other.

Soulicious (7:30 & B)
I've heard nothing but good things about this house music crew so check out their afternoon and evening parties if you are in the hood.


Nexus (2:00 & A)
Glitch/breaks with some great DJs – definitely worth a check if you're in the neighborhood - http://www.nexusnebula.com/

Cyphertown (2:00 & F)
Hip hop/breakbeat/dubstep – yes, live hip hop performances on the playa along with some stylin DJs - http://www.cyphertown.org/

Opulent Temple (2:00 & Esplanade)
Progressive house & breaks mostly. Although lots of people like this sound camp, I'm not one of them as I've had some really bad interactions with this camp's leader, so I skip it completely. YMMV. DJ schedule at http://www.opulenttemple.org/

False Profit (4:30 & Esplanade)
Not a full time sound camp this year as they won't be doing the mondo Tuesday night party with the Mog this year, but there might be a smaller shindig some time during the week at camp with a breaks/glitch feel so keep an eye out if you pass by.

Red Nose District (5:00 & Esplanade)
Circus performance and rock – Schedule at http://www.rednosedistrict.org/

Plug 4 (5:30 & Esplanade)
Funk/soul/hip hop from the playa old skoolas – small cozy scene with some cool music

Philadelphia Experiment (8:00 & Esplanade)
House/breakbeat from the Philly crew – def worth checkin out

Root Society (10:00 & Esplanade)
Massive setup on the corner. DJ tent and Rock/performance tent this year. First year they were kinda so-so, but last year lots of people loved the vibe, so check it out this year. Full schedule at http://jefrtale.com/rootspace/lineup08.html

Green Gorilla Lounge (10:00 & A)
One of my fave music camps as the house/electro music tends to be on the funkier side of things rather than the harder grindy stuff that is pretty prevalent up in most dance camps. They're bringing a new larger dome setup and also have an open bar - bring your own cup and an alcohol donation if you want to chip in.

Gravity Point (10:00 & A)
Breakbeat/various DJs – can be really bumpin or can be kinda empty, worth checkin out as it's completely original when it's on.

Here's a couple of events that look good – way subjective again. And remember, it's the last year of the Deep End on the playa, so definitely get a day or two in before it evaporates.

- Tantalus opening party at the art piece after dark where Hudzo's stoboscopic art piece gets fired up for the first time

- Closing set by Lee Burridge at The Deep End (6-7:30 or so)

- Late night minimal techno with NYC's Wolf + Lamb on Disorient Bus DEX out near the trash fence (10pm till morning)

- Temple of Breaks – breakbeat music on artcars all night at the Basura Sagruda Temple – wasn’t sure if this was going on or not this year, but it looks like it’s a go now.
- DJ Dan at Root Society (1:30-3:00am)

- Juke Joint at Cyphertown (night) – super solid music front to back
AfroBoogieFunk from Santa Rosa's DJ Malarkey 7-9 sunset saki party, 9-10 Senor Oz & PleasureMaker, 10-11 Wicked Lester, 11-12 All Good Funk Alliance, 12-1 Malarkey, 1-2 Anthony Mansfield, 2-3 Ali B, 3-4 Fort Knox 5, 4-5 M3, 5-6 Motion Potion, 6-7 I&I
- Root Society – great music lineup, probably will be packed but worth a couple of hours
at least 9-10 Dylan Rhymes, 10-11:30 Lee Coombs, 11:30-12:30 Fort Knox Five, 12:30-2:30 Special "Bass" Guest (probably Lorin), 2:30-4:00 An-Ten-Nae, 4-5:30 Ali B
- Cirque Bezerk vs. Vau de Vire Society with Muytator and Gooferman at Red Nose District (5 & Esplanade)

- Soulbrunch party at Solicious – high noon through the afternoon with breakfast burritos, mojitos and house music.
- Late night/early morning party at Hudzo's Tantalus art piece (midnight-daylight) with DJs Lee Coombs and Dylan Rhymes & sound by Garage Mahal and Deep End artcars.

- Last day of the Deep End (sniff)
- I'd say the Lorin Sunday morning sunrise set (assuming he makes it to the playa) is usually a highlight for playa energy. Check out your favorite music camps after the burn.

- Friends of Otto and Sharon will be meeting in front of the Garage Mahal art car at the Temple Burn for a communal goodbye. I'm bringing some fine wine.
- Root Society Closing Party – thank god someone is keeping their sound system up for Sunday night, it ain't over till it's over.

- Camps by location – http://www.dongrays.com/burningman2008/campsbylocation.html

A Fond Goodbye to Frank Bonita

While my computer was off being repaired these past few days, I logged on to Tribe via my phone to check in. On a friend's blog I learned about the passing of a dear and beloved campmate, Frank Bonita, from Camp Sunscreen. I was stunned. What terrible news!

Frank and his wife Marilyn were so kind, fun and loving. Camping with them was always a joy and his presence on and off the playa will be sorely missed.

For those of you just learning about Frank's passing, more info can be found here.
