Burning Man: The Day ⚡ I Hate Flash

October 4, 2013 at 6:11 pm

I have some pretty mixed feelings about taking and posting pics from Burning Man (particularly of people).  However, these photos are awesome and give you a good idea of what it’s like at BM during the day Burning Man: The Day ⚡ I Hate Flash.

There and back again.

Burning Man 2013

Happy New Year everyone.  I’m back from my mostly annual pilgrimmage to that thing in the desert and ready to kick some major ass.  I did drop off the radar there for a while – new job, a dance project, health problems, and the usual insanity of prepping for BM.  I’ve also rethought the structure of this blog and am going to try and focus more on getting all the old school stuff up first, […]

Rewind: SWEAR Jetty

SWEAR Jetty 01 white 1

I suspect that SWEAR Jettys may be the originators of the whole “fluffy” trend (ie faux fur leggings/boots/bootcovers).  While Elsa Schiaparelli predated them by about 60 years with her monkey fur boots.  But I doubt those ever made it to a rave.  I’d like to know when the Jettys were first produced and if anything similar was made before. See also my SWEAR Alternative company profile [Ed.] Alexander Wang has a contemporary version. [Ed.] Just found […]

Confession: I used to hate fun fur.  Haaaaaaaaaate it.  Sometime at BM 2008 I put on someones fur coat and ate my words HARD.  Yes, it’s gawdy, but it feel so fucking awesome after a night of partying.  And doubles as a blanket.  Fashion, good taste, age-appropriateness, and personal grooming standards are not and should not be socially expected at Burning Man (NOT the case at your local EDM massive). Or at least they operate […]

Happy NYE!!!

Well this was quite the year in terms of personal development.  Still a ways to go, particularly professionally and financially, but I’m looking forward to the new year  as I’ve worked very very hard to build a stable foundation for myself.  Off to a jungle party tonight, then likely to the CoZo and a proper catch up with my old crew.  Believe it or not, in oh 14 years of partying, mostly in the GTA, […]

Intro to Techno Snobbery

intro to techno snobbery

Welcome to my third attempt at blogging!  Obviously the first two went absolutely nowhere.  But really, i’m shocked and appalled I didn’t think of this concept earlier.  Those that have known me for a while, know that I fucking love raver clothes.  Let’s just say I was stylistically challenged before I was introduced to the joys of Geek Boutique and FDCO.  With the crash of the late 90s rave wave, most clothing companies producing garments […]
