Go to Burningman.org and look for the link to "live webcast" - it is more secure than the youtube link. the temple will probably burn shortly after sundown in Nevada but I bet it will be more like 9 pm their time. it is a beautiful structure, and the fire should be amazing

you can either search for it on youtube as "burning man livestream" or go to (and join) Camp Envy at

https://www.campenvy.com/

which will also let you send a message to be placed in the temple, which will then burn with the temple on Sunday next.

Compared to youtube or other edited and often self-obsessed videos of burningman the webcam and its operator...

leave the sound on... watch after dark... motorbikematt is the bees knees

I heard this on the radio 50 years ago, along with Howl, The Lion for Real, and something by Burroughs... blew me right out of high school and into the underground where I met folk arming Che Guevara (really)... i won't say those times were better - they weren't--but they surely weren't worse, and the leadership was only pathetic (Nixon & Johnson) not...

@anjave reading about her, musicians and stage hands said she had a real charisma and force--very easy to believe that!

thanks to @ferkixlll I got pulled in to this... let's see...

1- do you like blue cheese? Yes - many kinds, tho Stilton and Manchego are currently dominating that region of the cheese hamper.

2- coke or Pepsi? Not on your tintype! A proper Jamacan Ginger Beer upon occasion, or perhaps a Fever Tree Tonic... but mostly, nopt.

3- do you own a gun? Nope...

@WICKEDARGYLE thanks!  I think the same of you!

#13 too true. #26 yet another option: "stand and deliver." #20 try for a group discount?

It is said (by my relatives anyway) that a Scot ought to have a folly somewhere on his or her property.. to that end we have installed a 400 pound Buddha head deep in our woods--we have 100 acres or so, and are the smallest lot on our gully. So by and by hikers will stumble upon this and wonder what it is doing here...

I do not look for love that is a dream—
I only seek for courage to be still;
To bear my grief with an unbending will,
And when I am a-weary not to seem.
Let the round world roll on; let the sun beam;
Let the wind blow, and let the rivers fill
The everlasting sea, and on the hill
The...

Interesting choice. That is a strength to wish for. ***About 5 years back saw a performance of "Goblin Market". Very thought provoking. ( if too much time on hands wade back into my Blogs and see what I thought at the time).

watch it through and then tell me what you feel...

So there's a current segment since the Paul, that has John Cleese on Brexit and Stephen Fry on trump. Worth the watch.

I don't want to look at this, I don't want to think about the utter collapse of our federal government into an insane cruel and bottomlessly evil dicatorship and I know fuck all about what to do or how to do it.... but I do look within and without every literally damned day for that faint spark of light which will appear somewhere

Kidnapping is illeagle & immoral. It's ok when government sanctioned? Will "I was only following orders" be a valid defense this time around? *** Have you noticed how much of his posturings are styled after Mossolini? "Interesting Times".

@ferkixlll actually, yes I've noticed the resemblance to Il Duce.... and how closely his playbook follows Mein Kampf... reading William Shirer's Rise and Fall of the Third Reich the parallels are deeply, deeply worrying.

At one time, folk were properly proud to be American - the 'can do' attitude that built itself out of a depression and made life good for more than it harmed. far from perfect, especially when viewed with our current sensibilities, and that's a fact--but for the times, it was a good thing. Then Vietnam stirred up the hidden poisons never expelled after the Civil...

I believe that the newest generation has shown themselves willing to speak out... Their willingness to do so is an inspiration and a shot in the arm. Ironically, Trump, along with the lack of economic opportunity, will spur more to action; and not only the young people. The evil that has been lying dormant in our country is showing its face again; but I believe the most of us are willing to fight it. This may sound optimistic, which is kind of funny, because I'm anything but an optimist; but I think it's true. I'm with you in that I'd like to see more open, artistic opposition to Trump. Before he's kicked out of office, I want him to feel some of the pain he's inflicted on others, and nothing pains him more than being laughed at.

The outrages just flash by like the cars of a freight train. Before ya can react to 1, several more have come and gone. Truly this is the 'death of a 1,000 cuts'.
