Slum Lords of Plug-n-Play camping

This one should deliver hours of entertainment for the Burner fundamentalists.

The PlayaSlumlord is a cooperative of Burners who’ve accumulated a number of trailers and RV’s for rent at BurningMan. We started with ourselves and our friends. Our gear is in a secure enclosure in Fallon, Nevada. We can store your private trailer, yurt, teepees……….or MutantVehicle

Their recipe promises a mixture of rave, psychedelics, alcohol, and Mad Max.

The trailers on offer include a 25-foot fifth wheeler and two smaller campers. They will place them in your camp for you, and collect them when you’re done. They don’t supply any of the other stuff, so instead of going to Wal-Mart and Costco to stock your RV up, you will need to stock up the vehicle that’s transporting you, then wait on the Playa with all your gear, including sheets and cooking utensils, until you can find your RV.

We wonder if the Burner community will be more accepting of this offer since the trailers are old and used, and not exactly luxury.

The Silver Guy

A blog called Green Monkey Tales has a great interview with a true Burner.

I first met THE SILVER GUY in 2007. All I knew about him was that his name was Jesse and that he lived in Portland. Jesse was in constant motion. He had a rock star aura without the ego. By the end of the week, I was

What’s that Silver guy all about?

convinced I wasn’t cool enough for Jesse. The best I could hope for was that he tolerated me.

 
What most people don’t realize about Burning Man, is that it is intensely therapeutic. Imagine taking the BIGGEST party on the planet and mixing it with soul drudging, psychoanalysis…
 
What I crave most out of my time here, is people connections – true, genuine, heart connections. I’ll show you mine and you show me yours. That is the ONE common denominator all of my camp mates share. That is the main reason I go to Burning Man. 
 My favorite quote of the interview was this:
“My profession currently is selling high end vintage clothing online, and freelance acrobatic performance”
…wow, that’s a profession now? No way!

Breaking Bad – in LEGOs

We’ve already seen the LEGO Burning Man set – sadly, just a mockup at this stage. With no actual fire involved.

Thanks to the Laughing Squid for alerting us to the latest  hilarious example of LEGOs invasion of pop culture. Breaking Bad is the AMC original series, shot in visually arresting hi-def, about a high school professor who learns he has terminal cancer, so decides to become Albuquerque’s greatest methamphetamine cook to provide for his family. One of the best shows on TV for sure.

We’ll be looking out for the LEGO Playstation game soon. Can’t wait to drop some turtle-bombs!
