Are you aware of how you come across to your friends and camp mates when it comes to Burning Man? This little video might give you some food for thought.
Slayer Mashup – Religious Zealots Jamming to Metal Music
Slayer vs. the lord – Who Says Religion and Rock and Roll Don’t Mix?
Heavy metal music and religious zealotry are not know for being passionate bedfellows. Until now!
Watch as exalted bible thumpers thump their heads to heavy metal music, featuring metal masters Slayer. Sure to make you smile and thank the lord! What’s that you say? It’s not possible. Watch this and reconsider….
Same Goes for Drum and Bass
Not to be out shined by the metalheads, Drums n Bass music seems to move the religious people just as much as it does DnB fans across the globe. Have a look:
Bassnectar Ripping it Up in L.A.
What a killer show this was. I thought I’d post this video here as a reminder of the types of kick-ass music events that take place in L.A. Lorin always packs the house with some of the most gorgeous, fun-loving people on the planet. The L.A. underground is alive and well, even though this particular event was not really underground. It certainly gestated there!
I’ve recently discovered the usefulness of Twitter. I used to think it was silly, but at the Lightning in a Bottle music and arts festival, I found it to be very beneficial.
LIB had been constantly updating their Twitter feed, letting you know who was currently on what stage, and other up-to-the-minute happenings throughout the weekend event. Very useful indeed.

Now you can follow me on Twitter, too. There are two options. Feel free to go for them both.
The first is mainly a companion to Twan’s email list and this blog:
“TwansList” Twitter Feed
The 2nd is geared toward my random thoughts and simulated brilliance:
“the_real_Twan” Twitter Feed
Over the years, I’ve added and dropped various personal email addresses, as have many people in this community. As such, there are folks who used to be on this list who are no longer here (though I suspect that they’d still like to be).

Since 2000, the Temple has been a place for catharsis, remembrance, and rebirth, offering Burning Man participants a physical reminder to embrace change.
Drawing its inspiration from canyons carved over time by wind and water, the Temple of Flux rises from the desert floor as a series of graceful double-curved walls. Their wide, heavy bases taper as they ascend, leading the eye from a solid urban foundation to an increasingly fragmented upper edge as these long angles reach to the sky.
The Temple is a collaborative effort of three long-time community artists; Rebecca Anders, Jess Hobbs, and Peter Kimelman; along with numerous Burning Man communities and friends.
We have a huge range of experience and backgrounds, with one unifying vision: creating awe-inspiring, memorable art that emerges from the community and influences change.
Please be quiet in the neighborhood, respect your surroundings, and do not post to lists.
Parking & venue information will be sent to you along with your donation receipt.
Drink tickets will be available for purchase online at the venue.
