WITH FLAMING F**KING BELLS ON!!!When I search and figure out the details, I will let you know. Or you can let me know, since this will be my first time. Are there any pre-requisits to spin out there, besides the obvious of fuel, wicks, gear, and want?------------------I feel more like I do now than I did when I got here.~~~Dance as if noone is watching!~~~PLUR(RE) ---J---

Posted:i'm definatly going... unfortnuatly... i dont have a car lol.. so i suppose i'll just hitchike down like i always do... glowshow.. it's during labor day week and there isnt any pre-requisite to spin.. but i think if you want to be in the actual performance.. you have to be invited to do so... this will be my first year spinning out there.. so i dont rightly know... if they wont let us spin with everyone else... i'm going to do it anyway :Pwhen it gets closer to the actual date... we should work out some way of connecting once we all head out there-Tails

Posted:I'll be there, and most likely I'll be camping near Death Guild. I've been trying to scrape up enough money so that I can pay for things here and go a few weeks early and help DPW set up, but at the moment that seems unlikely

Glowshow, go to www.burningman.com for all the little bits of info such as directions and what not. As it is the official website it will answer most questions you may have, including what to do if you get caught with, um.... "medications"

You can also purchase tickets there.------------------If you love something, set it on fire.

Posted:Spinning during the burning of the man. Is not as easy as just taking your gear out and joining the Conclave. It won't happen as smoothly as it sounds. You have to send videos, get respectively in touch with Crimson, make it to the "Show her Salons" in the cities she drops by, & make it to the fire meets off or send videos if you are unable to attend for distance reasons. Also attend rehearsal meets before the man burns while on the playa.Crimson@burningman.com as to join the fire conclave list.I live in Sacramento 4 hours from the fest and two from San Fran. I will be driving out in my car, camping in my camp, and working with Fire Conclave & Earth Guardians.

Posted:I was in the Fire Conclave last year, it is a lot of work and definitely worth it. It is a great privelege to be in the inner circle during the burn so be sure and contact Crimson if you feel strongly that you want to participate. Otherwise there are many opportunites to spin on the playa at other camps and events. Make the effort to go, it will change your life.Comet

Posted:I was in the Fire Conclave the last two years. You have to audition to get in the Los Angeles Fire Conclave, demonstrating good fire safety as well as skill and commitment to the performance. We plan to have a fire circle in our camp this year. Ours is an official theme camp: the Green Fairy Bar Camp. We will be on the map. There are guerilla burns all over the Playa at BM, and a come-all spin jam at sunset at the Cauldren every night, and the Thunderdome rocks with goth music and fire-spinning Death Guild members most nights. To be in special ceremonies, like the Burning of the Man, you have to go to rehersals all year long.See you on the Playa.Maximus

Posted:Hey Jo,I'd like to meet you this year. Last year, I heard of you through Skunk (from NYC) and would have liked to hook up. I think the best place is the fire "spin jams" at the Cauldron every night. I was in the Conclave last year. It's a blast so spin amid this orgy of fire (more than 300 fire people last year!) and to be in the first rows to watch the Man go down.This year, I should be in there again with a chunck of my troupe.If anybody in the Greater Boston area is interested in being part of the Conclave, email me directly, I'm Crimson's contact for the area and will coordinate with her.Nomad------------------A.N.T.H.E.L.I.O.Nwww.anthelion.org

Posted:Word! That's next on my to do list.I was planning on buying or renting an old drop-top, packing a few things, and taking a 2-4 week Exodus from one coast to the other. As a spiritual experience. Burningman would be my final destination before I head back. Time to start planning and saving.

I'm starting to save up for next year though, I'm not going to miss out again


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Posted:Got my ticket already as well. I will be camped either at the post office or with a bunch of Houstonites very near the Post office - directly behind I suppose, on outer ring road (somewhere around 8 o'clock center camp if it is at the same position this year as it was last year). Working/performing at the post office is a riot, you all should consider checking it out.

There was some talk about a Texas enclave performing during the burn this year. We certainly could field enough talent. I wonder what happened with that idea?

For those of you who have not been there, Burningman is an amazing experience. Don't bother with trying to figure out what to expect, because I promise you that any notion you get into your head about it, no matter how many first hand stories you've heard, will just be plain wrong.

Did you all see the fabulous April fools day joke about MTV and Burningman? Check out http://www.cnn.com@66.70.3.6/2002/SHOWBIZ/04/01/Music/MTV/
br>They really had me going there for a while. I about threw a first class fit when I saw that (being blissfully unaware that it was April first). They hadn't put up the hoax notice when I originally saw it.

Posted:BTW, I found that while I was at Burningman, I hardly had the time to light my wicks. There was so much new stuff to check out with every waking minute (in which I still had any energyleft at all) that doing something I was already familiar with (like spinning poi) seemed like a waste of time. I only lit my poi twice, both times at the special request of new friends I had made out there. And spinning inside the perimeter on the night the man burns - well, lets just say that the desire to be well on my to being very wasted by then far outwieghs any urge to get lost spinning in a crowd of hundreds of other fire performers at the same time. I'm far too ego-centric to want to share center stage with so many others. Spinning at the burn is far too much responsibility at a time that I really want to let loose and be care free.

Posted:the second part of the issue, besides directions, is rides. I either have no ride back, or no ride there and no ride back, and i'm not hitchhiking alone, i'm not insane. (well, not that insane.) Thus suggestions along that line would be appreciated, I've never lived further west than TX so I don't know much about the west and the means of travel

Posted:I,ve always wanted to go to burning man, not sure if this year is a good option though, how good is it, because it looks amazing. Do many people hang around after the festival has finished?

The answer is never the answer. What's really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer-- they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer.-- Ken Kesey

Posted:People do not stay after the festival. There is a huge exodus on Sunday following the night of the Burning of the Man. Most of the people leave then. Center Camp (with the invaluable coffe shop) gets taken down, and the street signs, etc. get removed, over the next two days.
A small band of workers live at 80 Acres, one of the original burn sites, all year around.
Official theme camps are allowed to arrive early, but people with regular tickets should try to get there Monday morning. The first big fire ceremony, the lighting of the cauldren, is Monday at sunset. Crimson uses a parabolic mirror to light a torch from the rays of the sun, then she lights the cauldren...firedancers rush forward and light their wicks. This fire burns throughout the festival and is used to to torch the Man at the end.
Go if you possibly can.

Posted:I don't know about the current cost, but tickets will be sold at the gate for $250, and no tickets will be sold after thursday.
There's plenty of e-boards for rideshares. Go to the official site and find the right board and post there.
Our camp is the Green Fairy Bar Camp, located at Forecastle and 150. Firedancers welcome.
So far, Home of Poi junkies are planning to meet at the Man at dark on Tuesday.
The latest word is that it is 104 degrees in the day, and cool at night. No rain yet, but it is expected.
