Yeah, I'll believe it when I see it. wink

Good to know about Philly Expt. We're at Gnomecamp at 7:30 and Destiny. Feel free to adopt a gnome. Or if you see a gnome anywhere, at least take your clothes off and take a picture with it.

We'll try to make Weds at noon but... you know...

Where is 'fire conclave camp'?


Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:Fire conclave is in center camp at the 11:00 position (next to first camp and close to the culdron). It'll be much bigger with more room to hang out and discuss fire. Come by and say hi, I can't wait to meet everyone. I'll be the scrawny pale kid wearing mostly Orange (doesn't narrow it down much does it) I'm leaving tomorrow early AM see yall on the palya.

Had I not seen it, I would not have believed it. MCP at Burningman. I was proven wrong and am a large, fat, budlight drinking feline.

Except I hate beer. But if I drank beer I would drink bud light because I didn't think MCP would make it and she did.

And I even think she had some fun.

Themecamps, right Meg? Themecamps are the way forward.

Happy to meet those of you that I met. I didn't spin much but it wasn't really about the spinning for me this year.

The conclave was awesome. A bit scary when the fireworks went off into the crowd but I guess that's "Safety Third" for ya'.

Posted:Yay!

Made it out of the desert alive. Only 9 days this time though as opposed to the 10 I did last year. More than enough IMO. I was kinda ready to be out by the time the man burned. Was great to see all my friends again though... And Im glad I got to hang with MCP a bit.

Until next time...

NYC, we totally intended to come find you in GnomeCamp, but, again, playa time happened. I'll hold on to that hug for some time in the future.

We did run into Lightning, which was a totally random event.

The spinning that we saw was amazing. Spinning in the conclave was...amazing, and words don't do it justice.

Phoo on being back at work, though.

Posted:I actually think 'unaffected' is a pretty good way to describe me in general. At least in real life. wink Yeah, I was suprisingly comfortable in the heat and dust. Kinda funny watching you Brits flail around and gasp for air. Reminds me of me in winter in Scotland. frown

And ICoN was even more quiet than usual and probably even more so later on in the week.

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?!"

Our next goal is to get ICoN to an EJC. So I can be like "SEEE?!"

I think the pyronauts conclave is a lot different to the other conclaves. I think they would have more energy involved.

Posted:Molly stayed at home on the sofa - she's still sulking tongue



I had a great time though - I didn't see much beltaniness, except for the kickarse stick drumming and the lamplighters ritual. I loved that bit.



Someone had told me that there was an ex-beltane white warrior woman who wore her costume at BM but I didn't see her.



What did you find similar meg?



I think beltane should have art cars. And EJC. Art cars rock! biggrin



And I only gave myself sunstroke once NYC, and it was only of the mild woozy sort, and only cos we walked to the cathedral for the wedding, and I barely flailed at all...



...so tongue





On a separate note there should be more handpuppets at BM. Cab the Squirrel had the time of his little furry life, took up raving, now has a glowstick fetish and got high on half a cashew nut.

Posted:crimson lighting the fire at the start of the week that went on to burn the man.

Circling around the man. The energy expelled in the conclave, performers getting front row seats... The organisers being in control of the conclave but not exactly. lots of people not having a very good view. Having two big burning things (thou over seperate days) that mirror the two big bonfire there should be at beltane. I guess it's quite a bit like firepoint but not so much like beltane...

thanks for links and photos and stories and stuff hug

looked like a beautiful festival again this year - time to start dreaming about next year already...

Hey, hey... I worked yesterday AND today. Oh damn... is it 2:45 already? Almost time to go home. wink

Nobody's more aware than me of how tricky it is to get across the ocean. I just wish I could drag people across the atlantic so they could see because I think THEY'D like it. smile

There are a few folks that I wish I had a "conjur" spell and teleport them to whatever party/dj/festival I was at because they would have loved it. There are a few times a "Conjur Cole" would have come in handy... or at least been fun.

I think it's also that Burningman/EJC are so perfectly 'different sides of the brain' aspects of the same brain that it's natural to want to yin/yang them.

Which is again why folks like ICoN need to get to EJC. And why it's nice that folks like MCP got a shot of Burningman.
