Just when you thought you were burned out on Burning Man, this Craigslister comes along and suggests all you future Da Vincis, Einsteins, and Socrates get together and create a Permanent (with a capital "P") society that allows denizens to self-express all day, every day. 

We're not exactly sure what this new civilization would look like, but according to the Craigslister, it'd be the offspring of Woodstock and Burning Man. Ah, yes, a lifetime supply of Tempeh and unemployment checks. 

Below is the full ad. If it fits into your mid-life crises plans, then shoot this guy/gal and email
I am seeking others like me that want to build our own free natured, free spirited, open minded society. Its all just one big idea right now it's almost more of a dream that I know can be a reality I mean look at BurningMan and Woodstock (Except this will be Permanent) all it took was motivated individuals and the willingness to make it happen. I just know that there are literally tens of thousands of Thinkers, Builders, Tinkerers, Artists, Scientists & Philosophers and all we need is one great place to come together to make the world better. So I guess I just always new that if I build it they will come. So that's what I plan to do. This is where I want future Da Vinci, Michael Angelo, Einstein and Socrates to be born. All we need is a forum for greatness to come together to share thoughts and ideas.
It could possibly end up being a very big deal like burning man is and attract tens of thousands in a few years who knows.
Right now it will just be some like minded individuals getting together to share stories and life and friendship and build a better tomorrow for ourselves in a caring like minded community.
In the woods no less instead of the desert because its just way more comfortable under the canopy of a tree and near the bank of a river. OK so any awesome open minded people wanna help out and be a Co-founder in this amazing vision please email me I am very open to new ideas and all kinds of things.
I feel like with the culture growing like it is we need a real year round safe haven to be ourselves and explore our minds in any intellectual artistic or spiritual way we wish with out being looked down upon by others.
Especially after I heard that they now charge just to go to burning man how lame and counter productive to the culture and what it is.

If you read this far you must be curious at least so please send me an email and let's talk.

  • 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.'"
