Congrats on the recruiting man. I think I'll stay at The Dump for a while, but if ever the opportunity arises to join POC, may I?
What race was the Australian man?
I recently watched an interview with trumpeter Christian Scott where he proposed an idea to create gun reform. He suggested that 10,000 black men in each major city rally together and sign up to carry guns. That'd light a fire under the scared white folk to create gun reform laws. Is using fear a morally correct tactic to create something necessary? I'm not sure, but it's certainly an idea.
You know, the heat really wasn't an issue. More than anything, the cold at night was rough. There was a night I had to wear both of my faux-fur coats. And I heard last year it got even colder at night.
I did a lot of research before going and brought a solid amount of supplies. Most assumed it wasn't my first burn. Two things I brought that I was really glad about was a rice cooker (my camp had electricity) and a shade structure. Next time, I'm bringing lotion and a hand vacuum. It got really annoying to sleep in a dust filled tent every night.
A strange gift I received was a glass bottle that only holds one drop of water. I'm still not sure what it's purpose is, but it sure is interesting.
Ah, I see what you're saying.
One night I was out and about and noticed an art car that was absolutely incredible in terms of the craftsmanship involved. As I was looking at the details, I had this conversation with a woman who came up to look at it as well.
You're right, there is a lot of extravagance in art and BM is no exception. The money that was spent to build the car could easily have fed hundreds, probably thousands, of people in underdeveloped nations.
So where does the balance lay? Art is a wonderful thing. Sure, it doesn't require a shit load of money to create beautiful art, but do we demonize those with the money to create for creating? Probably, I don't know.
The symbols are the 10 principles.
I spent an entire day going to all the food events happening. One was a pickle give away (duh) and I noticed all the pickle people were wearing these pendants. I asked where they got them, and they told me a person in their camp had designed and made them. I went around back of the pickle booth and snagged one up.
Damn dude. You're a badass.
Another bass player performed, but a group from my camp The Saloon Ensemble (winners of the marching band competition), performed for Larry as they held a memorial for a friend that recently passed. I heard they were served a bomb ass three course meal.
Dude, this is incredible! Especially the Whine and Wine. What day(s) did you hold the event?
I'm really happy to hear that the camp was so successful this year. What did you do to recruit and increase the numbers?
Can you explain in more detail the conversation with the Australian man?
I heard several stories about how DPW guys were being assholes. A guy in our camp was telling us about how a couple of them were harassing him as he was trying to set up camp. I wonder, was the population this year much greater than last? If so, perhaps the stress of setting up that much more got to them.
