We think it is bah humbug, because we missed the chance to attend the very first Burning Man. But here is some eye candy for ya'.

You’ll Love These Outfits Worn At Burning Man [GALLERY] | "When you invite people to attend “an annual art event and temporary community based on radical self expression and self-reliance in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada”, you are inviting those people to take their crazy off the leash. You’re also inviting them to wear very little clothing. With that in mind, we present a short selection of some of the wilder items of self expression couture displayed at this year’s Burning Man fest. "

One wonders what will be the next evolution of Burning Man. Could be it has reached its upper limit since 60,000 people attended this year's event. There is no money spent while at the expo. It is like an avante gard convention in the desert.

We have thought about the name: Burning Man, and have decided it means the often used cinematic cliche of the man who gets burned to death in movies. This is a standard trick by stunt doubles in movies, well documented in expose's of how stunt guys light themselves on fire. We could be all wet though.

We also wonder how much corporate America bumfuddlery is involved in money spent for the exhibitions to bumfuzzle the visitors? This looks like an easy target for Bernaysian thinkers, who might mark off territories within the festival boundaries, and concentrate on their latest toy that they are marketing. If I were a corporation grower I would want my gizmo out in front of these patrons, they look like they can spend a buck or two. Shit, I'd give my gizmo away to them.

Also, in the pictures, I don't see very much ethnicity. Considering that Rule One of the Ten Principles of Burning Man: "Radical Inclusion --Anyone may be a part of Burning Man. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community."

From these pictures in Business Insider's pages, it looks like a secular demographic of svelte young white women, and swaggering white men in planters' hats looking to get laid, while sweltering in the desert. Not much diversity there, it could be a total drag to attend. We think its best days are over. If you didn't attend the very first one, then you probably can't call yourself a Burning Man troglodyte. Eh?
" ...The celebration of Burning Man's annual fire ceremony began in 1986, created by Larry Harvey and Jerry James. For the next four years, its annual fire party was held at Baker Beach in San Francisco. In 1990, the Park police interceded to prevent the culminating conflagration of the statue. This was a transitional moment for Burning Man as the event evolved with a new location, a change of date, and the beginning of a new meaning for the celebration. This viewpoint is an observation of the events surrounding Burning Man's presence in that year... Burning Man, a potent name for a very solid, but temporary, wooden icon. We all cheered The Man as he silently stood midst his urban surroundings, working his magic of mutual attraction. We quickly lowered the statue, dismantled it, and prepared it for Baker Beach, to erect it, and burn it as an annual ritual of which had actually began in 1985. (Louis M. Brill. no date. LINK)... "
