I'm really glad that you got to make it out MCP. There are so many times that I want to drag people across the Atlantic and be like "SEEE?!"




seee? what? I went to the hot and sexy fire show and i saw a lot of dire spinners, a couple of spinners that had good performance styles, heard a lot of americans being dumb in the crowd, and saw a couple of completely preventable white gas accidents. So I guess I did see.

themecamps are the bomb! I'm going to learn to drive just so I can cart themecamp stuff about with me... Hmmmmmmm, I think I'm going to make: "camp orange".

If you went to Burningman and all you saw was fire performing than I guess you didn't seee afterall.



And maybe ICoN will go to EJC and complain that the art cars all sucked.

Posted:oh right, you wanted me to be all like: wow this festival isn't about spinning it'shardly about spinning at all, what it's about is indescribably... Why would I bother? You can't describe burning man to someone, but you can describe the EJC. I have many times. It's just a big european juggling convention.

I thought you'd want to drag people across to be like: this is how europeans spin: and I was supposed to be all like: this is how americans spin.... I mean, this is a forum about spinning right? Did I go someplace else?

Posted:Actually, I'm pretty sure you're on a "Burningman Festival" thread. A festival in which an extremely small percent of the attendants are spinners.



And you're doing the classic "Disagree with NYC for fun and profit" thing again.



Go back to when you were saying "Everything was awesome. Burning man is amazing. There are no words to describe it" before you decided to change what you actually think just to disagree with me.

Posted:well all i want to say is that i was COMPLETELY sober for the spin around the burn. yup. clean and sober. yup. the floor wasn't breathing at ALL.

i did notice a distinct lack of close ups on the arashi for that video... only two? in a crowd of 500 quote unquote amazing people? what kind of a world is this?!?! i really must talk to my agent. and what gives, they didn't show me at all once the man started burning?!??!?!

well at least they showed me doing something interesting, instead of the rest of my routine where i just stood there and picked my nose.

Posted:I think I've finally gotten the last of the dust off me!! It was really nice getting to meet some of you, and chat a bit with others. Meeting spinners, cj'ers and hoopers was the focus of my burn this year, and on that front it was awesome.

I hope our paths cross again at some point.

Heh, I must have been spinning in center camp with Cody for 20 minutes before I realized it was him. smile It was easy to find mcp out there, what a cool shirt and every time I rode by Philly Experiment I saw ICoN crashed out on the couch. smile

Posted:The dust must have blocked my HoP memory coz I swear I totally forgot this site and the people on it existed till today, two weeks after the burn! What the?! ubbloco

Cody - the roos name is skippy. He doesn't need to be fed or watered but you may need to re-inflate him occassionally (he has his flat days like the rest of us!).

Otherwise...BURNING MAN WAS AWESOME!!! The hoppers and spinners that I met we all lovely, fantastic, welcoming people and we've brought home a swag full of ideas and inspiration from this years burn. Thank you SO much to the lovely guys from Controlled Burn that helped make the event so special for us hug ubbrollsmile hug

Posted:If you're talking about the hat you were using in center camp during the HoP meeting, that wasn't Dave's... Although, he had one just like it. The one you were using was someone else's - whom I don't know.

Let's turn those old bridges we crossed into ashes.
We'll blaze a new trail,
and torch the rough patches.

Posted:Oh man, now I'm looking forward to my first burning man experience even more. I didn't realize until today how many people here went there. And if I keep up my practice, by the time I go I'll be pretty damn good.

Do many of you HOPers go to other (mostly music) festivals? It'd be awesome to meet up with some of you guys and gals and learn a thing or 2. Like, I feel like there should be a general festival meet up thread of it's own.

Posted:I wasn't sure if I should start a new thread or not, so I'll just post here. I'm getting ready for Burning Man '11. Preparations include getting re-acquainted with my long-lost poi skills. I was first introduced to the art form when I stayed with some Maori girls in Australia 10 years ago. I'm hoping to get in touch with some other burners, especially as this is my first year. Thank you.
