THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, it’s Burning Man week! And right now all of our fellow hippies, wannabe hippies, and middle aged hipsters in a mid life crisis gather together, do bunch of drugs and call it a “spiritual Journey”. I came across this great article that LA Weekly pretty much saying what everyone else thinking. [snip-it from article]:
“ I only need to be a grown-ass man with a sense of pattern recognition to know Burning Man sucks. It’s middle-class people behaving embarrassingly. The tales of spiritual enlightenment gained after six hours of dancing on ecstasy are as hard to hear as they are dubious. If I ever have to hear a story about how amazing a fire twirler was, I might actually light myself on fire.” [click here for article]
Plus, I had to get a Nik Richie comment on the topic. Thoughts?
All I see are a bunch of gay Unicorns in the desert… instead of calling it “Burning Man” they should just call it Palm Springs.- nik
