    Getting settled back in here. Lots of additional smaller art out on playa this year. Was pretty cool to check out.

    Caught up with MTM for a bit on Tuesday night. He was the only one who made it out as far as I can tell. If others made it sorry I missed ya.

    Some interesting characters in our camp this year and visiting our bar, as always

    Splat- Same here got a bit of playa cough which is weird because I didnít think it was all that windy/dusty this year. I rolled through the neighborhoods you thought youíd be camping but didnít see your RV. Sorry we didnít link up.

    the urbanism of burning man by an economist: "And so when skeptics say that it will be too hard to plan for large new waves of urbanization, he says this instead: “Look at Burning Man! They grow to 70,000 people in one week.”

    “It’s a metaphor for my sense of economics,” Mr. Romer said. “I picture an economist showing up at Burning Man and saying: ‘Oh, look! This is the miracle of the invisible hand. All of this stuff happens by self-interest, and it just magically appears.’ And there’s this huge amount of planning that actually is what’s required beneath it to make the order emerge.”
    On this point, the economist and the Burners kept converging: Freedom requires some structure, creativity some constraints. But it was becoming clear there was more to the structure and constraints at Burning Man than Mr. Romer imagined. As he learned that, he inched even further toward the urban planners.
    After 1996, the founders also began putting up a fence around the city, a pentagon with perfectly straight sightlines. Nominally, it is a “trash fence,” catching debris before it blows into the desert. But it also defines the edge of the city, so that it is possible to stand at the boundary line and stare out into an open desert uncluttered by tents or plywood art. The fence is an urban growth boundary. It is as much about keeping out interlopers as keeping people in.

    Romer

    "Paul Romer won the economics Nobel last year, and went to Burning Man this year, and Emily Badger at the New York Times wrote a long and fascinating article about Romer’s insights into urban development and the trade-offs between central planning and free markets and how they are informed by the spontaneous-seeming city that springs up every year at Burning Man, and I kind of … could not get past how Romer keeps telling strangers about his Nobel?

    Levi, who did not know whom he was talking to, mentioned to Mr. Romer that his hero was Daniel Kahneman, the 2002 winner of the Nobel in economic sciences.
    “Well, I won the Nobel prize last year,” Mr. Romer said. “So Danny is a fellow laureate.”


    I hope he does that when people mention Bob Dylan too. Also:

    "One morning, a man who called himself Coyote, who was responsible for surveying the city’s streets, took Mr. Romer around. At the far edge of town, they found a roller coaster that looked likelier than most things at Burning Man to harm you. It was designed for one fool at a time, strapped into an oversized car seat that shot down one side of a 31-foot wooden U shape and up the other.

    Mr. Romer, surprising himself, walked up to it.

    “Should I do this?” he asked Coyote. “If you kill a Nobel Prize winner, it’s on you.”


    When he goes to the supermarket back home is he like “if you sell expired milk to a Nobel Prize winner, it’s on you”? Or is this just a reaction to the weird social space of Burning Man?

    Brown Eye, actually. DJ Flume eating ass onstage during a burn performance has become quite the story.

    ENDORSE. If a dj needs to chum on sum bum aint need no nevermind.

    “Whoever put Flume on blast with those videos sucks at Burning Man. It goes against the entire ethos of the event to film someone wildin out like that,” wrote one critic, before recanting when he realized Elkington posted the video.

    The spirit of the more than 70,000-person gathering is strongly against Instagram culture. Using the event’s art for promotional purposes is strictly banned.

    Those two are dating from what I read. Pretty normative 20yo behavior if you axe me.

    Sorry no pics from me I donít take my phone/camera out all week. One of the awesome things about bartending at our morning bar is we mostly get people coming off their sunrise trips. This year plenty of pinkeye, fisting, and playa sex chaffing talk. Iím sure Iím not the first to coin the phrase ďNo lady likes alkali-vaginĒ
