Burning Man Live Streaming
Direct from Black Rock City 2016!
Couldn’t make it to Burning Man?
Don’t fret! Watch it on TV.
Almost like being at Black Rock City…. except you’re SO NOT!
Not a Substitute for the Real Thing!
Don’t think for a minute that by watching the goings-on at Black Rock City, that you have actually experienced the event. You are not participating with what’s going on on the Playa. A computer screen cannot compare with immediate experience. Suggestion: Actually go there. As the inimitable Hunter S. Thompson once wrote: Buy the ticket. Take the ride.
I just found this on the excellent KickStarter website, which helps people get the funding for their creative projects.
Visit the Kickstarter website and help fund this worthy project. And while you’re at it, why not come up with a project of your own and use the Kickstarter website to help raise funds to make it real!
The “People of Burning Man Coffee Table Book” project in particular resonated with me. Here’s an excerpt from the Kickstarter website that describes a little bit about the project:
Whether or not you’ve ever been to that thing in the desert, this book is designed to be your counter culture spirit guide.
We spent about a decade documenting the people and culture of Burning Man. We got a grant from the Internet Archive to print the photos, and we hand bound them into books. Those 100 copies are long gone. Chances are that you will never acquire one. There were never enough to go around. So, here is your chance. Actually, here is our chance, as a community, because if we don’t publish it now, we probably never will.
People of Burning Man Coffee Table Book
This project will only be funded if at least $25,000 is pledged by Friday Mar 18, 7:30pm PDT. They’re almost there! Your contribution will help. Not only will you feel great that you helped something so cool to become real in our world, but you’ll also receive a reward of some sort, such as a free book, a signed copy of the book, and more, depending on the amount of your contribution. Check the Kickstarter.com page for this project for all the details.

Burning Man Tickets
Click on either the StubHub or Razorgator images and do a quick search. You might get lucky and find a ticket at a price you’re willing to pay. You’re best bet, however, is to just go to the event and pay full price at the gate.
I have used Interstate Batteries many times over the years in my Playa preparations. If you have a need of batteries of any kind, they have it. I know from experience how lame it can be when you realize that you’ve run out of juice on the Playa. Prepare yourself. Less than one month left to get your act together. Plenty of time to stock up on your batteries. Fast, free shipping, reliable service.
Why travel alone? Bring a date to Burning Man. Over the years, I have had many friends who have found great partners to bring to Black Rock City by using various online dating sites. I’ve never tried this myself, but I’m certainly not opposed. If you have a membership to one one of these sites (or any dating site, really), just do a profile search with the words “Burning Man”, or an appropriate synonym, and see what pops up. Or add Black Rock City related words into your own profile, if you’ve got one. You just may end up with the perfect Playa playmate. And how perfect is that..?
A few sites that my friends have used are listed below. In most cases, the sign up is free. It’s worth a try.
