    It's an interesting experience, but it's really nothing more than an excuse for kids to get together and do outrageous amounts of ecstasy. It has become a commercialized mess. 95% of those in attendance aren't there for any other reason but to party.

    Think the Woodstock crowd without the political awareness factor and unity, and you'll have Burning Man.

    I have a ticket to Burningman 2009. I was all excited to go, but now I don't think I'm going.

    Do you know what turned me off to the idea? I got tired of talking to people who raved about the "spirituality" and freedom of the whole experience. It seemed bogus.........having to do massive amounts of drugs and booze so that you can do things like having sex with groups of people........all in the name of self expression and "freedom".

    I don't need to go to the Nevada desert to expereince that.

    Burning Man is no Woodstock. It has nothing to do with rock music concerts with disaffected college kids. It was and remains an artists gathering, with a rather older demographic. Some see it as latter-day hippie, but it's more what used to be called artsy Bohemian.

    It's true the nature has changed over the years and it's become somewhat formulaic. But the performance art spirit remains, not to mention the nudity and drug use. Some online links even list it as a nude event. I saw the same thing happen to the annual Sturgis motorcycle rally, as it got so big they had to bring in an events management company to run it, and it went from an unstructured outlaw gathering to a Mom & Pop Winnebago outing.

    I've been to both, and I always advise friends to come to BM prepared to be totally"self-contained" regarding camping. You never know what you'll find, although it's much better organized now than in the past. Plus you may run into sand storms, so bring painter's masks, as you see in that pic above.

    KissingPro don't you be afraid to attend. And if you still don't go. please send me your tickets. (It's by reservation now, for the enclosed official area, but you can take a chance when you get there that they'll have a vacancy)

    ...and i am happy to report it is not the drug and booze infested hippie commune everyone thinks it is (while those elements are there if you want to experience them, there are also many other amazing sights, incredible art, wonderful people, great music and dancing, and you'd see nature at it's worse and best, and it is all something you have to see to believe.)

    The way you describe it, it sounds like NYC! Maybe I will rethink this.

    Burning man was totally awesome this year. I didn't run into Adam Lambert thou but I did meet some super sexy guys and gals. I was at the dilated people spa if anyone went there.
