How does the title Burning Man Zeitgeist not have anything to do with the blog entry? Seems an appropriate title to me.

Sorry TNG - It started off as Sex and Art at Burning Man. I changed it after hearing from Flagamuffin. (flagamuffin - tee hee) I don't want to mislead anyone looking for sex and art and getting philosophy and analysis.

Ah, that makes more sense now. Thanks for clarifying lil.

The change makes more sense to me, haha.

I liked the numbered correlating points the blog made, specifically the one about being encouraged to do what you want vs. not. Reminded me of a popular post on reddit a while back where a bunch of people put together a video of "Oh The Places You'll Go" being read at Burning Man.

Here's the video: [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahv_1IS7SiE&feature=share...]![/url]

EDIT: I don't know how to do links!

I've seen this video! I actually show it to friends and family when I want them to have strong, positive connotations tied to BM. And I'm glad the numbered points worked well for you, I like them too. I feel like they help my brain/reader's brain organize and process information with more ease and speed.

Thanks for the link, I enjoyed the video and think a reading like that without the Suess cartoons, is all the more impressive for what he wrote.

I've seen other similar projects from Burning Man floating around. I've never been, but from what I know about it I would assume it was just a drug-fueled party/orgy, but in fact it seems to jumpstart creativity and human happiness. Sounds cheesy, but maybe it's true.

Check out the image here, gives an idea of the scope of the gathering.

Incredibly cool.

While that is a nice video, I still prefer the John Lithgow reading.

Click the little markup word at the bottom right of the reply form. It tells you how to do everything. So the correction would look like this. See the video here

You are fantastic, thanks. I don't know why I assumed hubski would be using bbcode.

by the way I love how EASY it is to edit an entry. There are a lot of nice features in hubski.
