Posted:Hey all:

This sounds like too much fun. really, it's too much.

** RING OF FIRE 2005 **

This is an invitation to all fire performers to contribute to a community art event at Burningman 2005.

The idea is simple. The preparation is minimal.

At 11pm on Friday evening all performers are invited to walk to a point along the esplanade of their choosing, light up, and show their stuff. If we get enough people we will create a beautiful "Ring of Fire" along the esplanade all the way from 2:00 to 10:00.

The signal to begin will be when the watch on your arm says 11:00pm. If you are like most people and don't wear a watch on the playa, look to 2:00 on the esplanade, and light up when those people do.

Everyone is welcome to contribute, whether it be with poi, staff, fans, flamethrowers, or just standing there holding a lighter in the air.

ALL PERFORMERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PROVIDING THEIR OWN SAFETIES AND FOLLOWING STANDARD SAFETY PROCEDURES (if you don't know what those are, then you shouldn't be playing with fire). PLEASE PERFORM ON THE OPEN DESERT SIDE OF THE ESPLANADE AND DO NOT IMPEDE ESPLANADE TRAFFIC. MAINTAIN A SAFE DISTANCE FROM EXISTING ART INSTALLATIONS AT ALL TIMES.

Play safe. Play beautiful.

Please forward this idea to any fire performers you think might be interested in contributing.

Posted:and btw, my camp, the fallen, will most likely be between 3:30 and 4:00 and Catharsis or Delirium. look for the sign, look for the big silver fish (though the fish will be out and about most of the time). come make a mask, it'll be a nice afternoon activity.

burn bright beautiful people & see y'all real soon.

Your camp is only a block or two away blueboy and I'm itching to make a mask with horns.

Can't wait to meet everyone, see you in a week or so.

Posted:If you happen to be in or passing through Reno next Wednesday the 24th stop by for our last Wednesday night gathering before Burning man. There are usually lots of people that night because our fire group gathering is like a little weekly Burner gathering and everyone is excited to hit the playa. Contact me for details or directions. OPEN BURN

So who are the burning man virgins? I'm half tempted to bump my video to the front of the line so the virgins can get a taste of some of the fire spinning you'll see at burningman. smile Scarry stuff. eek wink

Posted:Icon, after seeing Skunk's new poi I had to upgrade too. This afternoon I'm making a new set with 10' of wick each. The catch is that the wick is 4" kevlar, not 2". I think they will isolate me, not the other way around. wink I'll post pics. smile

Cody, those wicks are crazy! Can't wait to see them spin. I'm betting you will lose your eyebrows with those.

Posted:I'm definitely going to Burning Man this year. I'm going to be at Camp Burning Cloud (8:45 and Fetish).

Since this is going to be my first burn, I will be at all of the virgin festivities at the Pink Flamingo Lounge, The Black Rock Boutique, and Spike's Vampire Bar.

Also, I highly recommend checking out the Purple Turtle Catnip Lounge (7:30 and Fetish inside Shangri-La Village) and FU-BAR & Camp Evil (Same location).

And, definitely, a must-see place is the Church of Silk (7:15 and Catharsis inside A.S.S. Camp).

Posted:WoW! I had an amazing time at Burning Man this year. Wed night at Hookahdome was some of the best fire spinning I've ever seen (and yes, I've seen many of the UK spinners)... and spending time with Icon, Lightning, and the rest of the spinners was tremendous. The show before the man burned was a lot of fun, too. I wore two arm bands in memory of spinners -- one for Nasu (do a search here on HOP), and one for Sammy from Controlled Burn.

My thoughts are with Cody, Howoward, and the rest of the Controlled Burn crew. Not only for the sad news wrt Sammy, but also the happy news for Howoward and Chelsea.

Posted:El Circo show Friday night was incredible. They were at 10 o'clock, 1 camp from the corner. The spinning was not technical at all, but they sure have a whole lotta attitude! The second half of the show was a fun burlesque number that fit surprisingly well with the fire show.

Posted:I Just got back myself but my mind is still out there. There was so much incredible spinning in such a short period of time that my brain had a meltdown.



I'm glad I got to meet most of the HoPers along with tons of other great spinners. Big thanks go out to ICoN for the insane technical displays, Orbit for holding down the fort at Hookahdome, Blueboy for the gorgeous duo performance and Lightning for showing me the same time 4bt TTN that is still kicking my ass. 2005 will be a burn I never forget.



I didn't get a chance to meet Cody, burning dan and arashi but I'm pretty sure I saw you out there. I guess there is always next year.

Can we start a whole new thread about this, and how hop changes your worldview, the nationalistic consequences, and then link it in to the juggling or manipulation or dance thread? That would rock.

Posted:well, what can i say....

what a party!!! biggrin

it's gotta be the world's ultimate party, right?

sorry i didn't get to meet any of you (except mo-seph, who i already knew smile) but believe it or not i actually turned up for the hop meet up at the wrong spot ubblol i believe center camp facing the man at 12 noon on thursday was the location? well clever-ass here was at the man facing center camp ubblol

oh well, never mind, i still had a ball!

only 1 minor mishap... on the saturday nite, about half an hour or so before the man burnt, i lost my camera frown i'm sure i lost it on the playa, somewhere along 3 o'clock between the esplanade and the man whilst walking up to watch the man burn. it was a brand new Sony Cyber-Shot P-200 7.2 megapixels, and it also contained a brand new 1 gig memory stick, lots of shots of me in a huge pink furry hat, and was in a blue Fuji wallet/case.

so if anyone knows of anyone who knows of anyone who found it... i'd soooo love to have my photos back and i'll offer a reward. the people at lost & found at centre camp told me to go to the burning man website, but it doesn't appear to have been updated since the event, and i can't for the life of me find a lost & found section. so if there are any burners out there who can offer advice on where else i could post (i've already posted on craigslist.org) it would be greatly appreciated.

thanks guys hug

If you go to the Burning Man home page and type "lost" in the Search box on the top right you will get a list of links. The first link will take you to the lost and found 2005 section of the web site.

The direct link is:

i've just been contacted via the BM site by a beautiful soul from L.A. who found my camera on the night of the burn and is returning it to me as we speak bounce

i had a feeling it might make it's way back to me, but didn't dare to hope too much. i must have scored 'karma points' or something, with the amount of mobile phones i've manged to re-unite with their owners this year ubbrollsmile

wow, i'm just ecstaticbounce bounce2 bounce

thank you BM and every burner who made my week at BRC one of the most memorable of my entire life grouphug

I didn't spin as much as I thought, partly cos of getting much more into dancing, and partly cos sticks are big and heavy, but it was lovely to meet some of the hoppers, and the 'merkin spinners.

The temple burn was amazing. Totally transfixed by the dust devils getting up and walking out of the fire...

Yay!
