Craiglist missed connections, what luscious fruits of information you provide! As a heretofore non-Burner, I could previously only imagine the feats of hedonism that go down inside the "permission engine" of Black Rock City every year. But thanks to Craigslist, I no longer have to. Missed connections tell me all I need to know:

-- The value of creative dress (or creative non-dress):
"You had the words "PET ME" shaved into your chest...... And I did! And I really enjoyed it!"
-- The importance of spontaneity:
I was unlocking my blue fuzzy bicycle after a crazy night of adventures, about to head back to my side of the playa for some pre-dawn fire play, when a stunningly beautiful blond woman appeared and started dancing with me, followed by an equally attractive man. We laughed and hugged and suddenly we were kissing passionately <3 it was absolutely beautiful, and fucking hot as hell. He started finger fucking me as I did the same to her. The bass was dropping, the sun was rising and with you two I was in bliss.

-- Don't forget to make eye contact:

The

way you looked into my eyes as we were locked together in my tent as

the sun rose was absolutely breathtaking. Let's do it again when you

come back to S.F. in Oct. I hope I gave you my correct phone number.


-- And always be ready to meet new friends:
 I

was rolling pretty hard at that point and losing track of reality ...

Your friend who was a raver mom from Noe Valley declared me to be her

platonic husband. She was extremely talkative. I may have witnessed an

eye roll or two from you. You were wearing an indian headdress, and had a

dance to go with it. I was wearing a tutu and a cowboy hat.

Anyway, this is a strictly platonic request, because you seemed cool and

I wish we'd talked more. You dance like a badass, [and] I'm always

looking for people to go dancing with.

Of course, there are more coherent accounts of what happened at this year's burn.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
