Update: Skankatron shared the widely read article about the 1% who’ve come to love Burning Man, especially because nothing radical was happening in the first place. https://www.jacobinmag.com/2015/08/burning-man-one-percent-silicon-valley-tech/

Queen Turkey Feathers takes exception:

Important read about Burning Man for those who see what we create there as practice for the world we desire for the next phase of our evolution.

I acknowledge that I am part of the rich people this article references, though I am not a Silicon Valley technocratic scion, I do know plenty of them.

And, I can certainly see and understand the author’s concerns, especially this part:

“To these young tech workers — mostly white, mostly men — who flock to the festival, Burning Man reinforces and fosters the idea that they can remake the world without anyone else’s input.”

But I disagree that it’s what actually happens at Burning Man when they get there.

They may flock to Burning Man thinking that they can remake the world without anyone else’s input, but they find something else when they get there.

During the panel I moderated yesterday with David Comfort, Stephen Brooks and Alex Lightman on how to create a community synergy engine, one of the participants brought up the point that we had not thoroughly enough considered the impact of our project on those without a voice, the worker class.

He is most likely right, and that’s why we are at Burning Man having these conversations as we create the new world we want to live in.

We come to expand our perspective.

We come to open our eyes, our hearts, and our minds to make the space to hear the points of view that may not always be able to get in as we focus on the day to day work of bringing forth a new world vision, while at the same time living the reality of this current world.

When the author says “This is the dream of libertarians and the 1 percent, and it reifies itself at Burning Man — the lower caste of Burners who want to partake in the festival are dependent on the whims and fantasies of the wealthy to create Black Rock City” he is missing something vital.

Without the artists and creatives, Burning Man wouldn’t be the playground it is for the rich. It would be more of the same heady, intellectual, and socially awkward separation reality they already get at home.

It’s the “lower castes” who bring the juice, the connection and the heart that the rich desire and that gets integrated into the creations we will all bring forth together.

None of us can do it alone. It’s Burning Man (and similar festivals) where we learn to bridge and do it together.

Just keep telling yourself that rich white males can’t make it without you, Skankatron, or that they’d give your dusty, delusional self the time of day. #stupidfuckingconartist

  1. They are so blatantly doing drugs, they may as well include photos of them actually doing the drugs. What must this look like to divorce lawyers (lawyers are inevitable…) and child-protection authorities?

      • Your username made me laugh and be disgusted at the same time. I wonder what the German term for that is. Hold on I’ll find out…

  2. I got crabs reading this post. If Donkey marries Rain, nothing would make me happier. Can you imagine the Baughers and their blended family at these self-weddings??

  3. I had prepared a talk on Wisdom Through The Ages for my friends at Camp Mystic, but sadly I am prevented from attending Burning Man this year. So I thought I would share some highlights here.

    Once, when the ancient philosophers Boogaloovius and Dowahdidius were disputing the nature of Being, Boogaloovius said “What is, must have been; and therefore, always was.” Dowahdidius immediately smacked one of his slaves and said “That bruise wasn’t there a second ago.” Boogaloovius replied, “Seeing isn’t always believing.” “Oh come on,” said Dowahdidius.

    When the famed Holyman Sri Sri was living in Beverly Hills, one of his disciples asked if he carried a wallet under his robe. “Money is an illusion,” he replied. After a moment he added, “That was a joke. Actually money is an infinitely renewable resource, when it is given with love, and all of you love me.”

    A student once came to the Grand Rebbe of Blintz in great perplexity. “How is it that the generations continued after Adam and Eve, if they had no daughters?”. When the Rebbe said nothing, the student continued, “and if they had daughters, wouldn’t that be…incest?” The Rebbe immediately replied, “Don’t you have bills to pay?”

    St. Charles, patron saint of Nova Zembla, was known for taking an ice bath before dawn every morning and having himself flogged by a grinning farm boy named Zeke. A fellow monk once said to him, “You know, Charles, chastising your flesh seems to make you inordinately happy.” “Yes, yes it does,” replied the saint.

    It is said that the Cree Medicine Man No Insurance Accepted was asked by his grandson, “Grandpa, it is true that children are named for the first thing the father sees after they are born?” “Well, not always, but why do you ask, Two Dogs Fucking?”

    • yes and she left poor boytoy sulking and trying to process what had just happened to him. It was never the same after that. The love that died on the Playa.

  4. Bottom picture there, guy on the left, reminds me–life lesson learned: generally, avoid men with hips.

  5. OK, I don’t get scary popeye guy fondling Donkey’s withers in picture 4th down. Can someone explain? Is the popeye part of a costume?

    • Not to make you feel bad or anything, but I read up about him and KC Baker a while back — he had a stroke or something similar. He can’t control expressions like the one in the photo. While I don’t get some folks’ love for Noodles, I do really feel for KC and her family. Despite the fact that she is also on the grift.

      • OK I did feel kind of bad and then did admire him for putting his otherness out there as fearless self expression. But then he Fondled A Donkey, so I lost all respect.

        • Also, KC Baker is possibly the most annoying narcissist among all of the woo grifters and that’s saying a lot.

          • She’s the one who got offended when a female high school friend commented “Wow, you sure do love yourself!” after viewing KC’s bedroomful of selfies on display. And then proceeded to justify why, as a feminist, it was ok to take and display a roomful of selfies without shame.

          • This had me in stitches. The tear rolling down the check because Mary Magdalene is no longer a ho. This. On the day after the Orlando Massacre. Honey, we loved your screentest and want to offer you a part in Filthy Grifter MILFs Vol. 26.

      • That must be a tough thing for him to deal with on a daily basis, and wishing him the best with that.

        It is revealing of what we think about Judy’s posse that it seems perfectly reasonable to us that one of them might affect a physical disability/variation as a costume. And I don’t think we are wrong about most of them, even though this particular dude is actually experiencing the aftermath of a serious health event.

      • Yeah, either stroke or Bell’s Palsy, can’t remember which. I’m sure FLM didn’t know about his disability.

  6. I still can not believe her parents continue to pay for her lazy raft ass lifestyle. I assume they have just given up and are thankful their son is not a fuck up.

  7. Leaving Playa early= No feminine would share/freely gift their masculine to Ali.

    • Why the hood? Donkey must be irate that he won’t wear the costumes she picks for him. The dude is like those people who are still wearing the same thing they wore in eighth grade because that is the last time they thought about it.

      “Hey Rain, whatcha wearing to church?”

      “Dunno. Thought I might wear my jeans and no shirt.”

        • What happened to Wali Rahman anyways? Did his bizarre emoji-ing and dismissiveness of Khaat whores get him consciously uncoupled from the tribe?

          • Wali is still with us. He’s commenting under the name Liyan Walee on all of Shanti’s posts. I’m guessing she shut down W.R. Khan after reading on RBD that this was Wali’s stealth account. So now he’s made a new name and the new FB page is fucking wack.

    • Before seeing “Phuturephiphty” spelled out, I thought “Presentlyphorty” was the best nickname for this phuckphace. Keep the hits comin’, y’all

  8. Too bad they don’t test atomic bombs in the Southwest anymore. This would have been a great place to set one off.

      • Not long ago there were strong rumours that Wendi was dating Putin. I wonder if he’s attending “incognito” like when famous actors go to Comic Con cosplaying themselves.

        • That’s right! Maybe Wendi with an “i” and Vlad the Impaler got down & dirty with Skankatron and Papa C. in the orgy tent.

          • Oh we wouldn’t hear the end of it! Suddenly #pleasurabletyrany would be popping up in the grift and salsa would be “shifted” for a well tuned balalaika. If they can sell the “connection”, they’d have no qualms giving it a positive spin.

        • Of all current world leaders he’s the one most likely to be up for shirt-cocking. Boris Johnson would probably be number two, only no leader and, I suspect, no cock.

  9. Lol, Scamti thinks she’s one of the rich folks who goes to BM and she thanks the little people.

  10. “I am part of the rich people…”
    You know, those rich people who use saggy beach towels as window coverings.

    • Rich white men care about me. They really, really do and we’re in this together! #pleasurabledelusion

    • She meant “rich” as in “fattening”. If you were stuck in a tent with her whining for a week you’d comfort-eat yourself out of your tutu too.

    • FYI, she’s getting shredded by some people in the comments who are rightly pointing out that the disenfranchised can not afford the time or money to go wank off at Burning Man.

      • Yes, some of the comments are as negative as the responses to that adolescent bullshit Skankatron posted re: Brexit.

        Leonardo Armijo Burning man has been bought and sold. I appreciate the perspective presented here. My experience of the burn was that privilege, my own and others, gets you far. The festival is mostly white & mostly affluent, nothing wrong with this per say but claiming 1%ers are hearing the voice of the world’s voiceless is a stretch when 99.99 percent of people on earth will never be at the table. Hopefully everyone who partakes has a useful shift. I learned a lot about self reliance when I was there and also observed how dependent I was on others & the capitalist system the gifting economy is rooted in. I noticed a lot of blood suckers walking the streets of black rock city; a vampire weekend turned into a vampire week…

        • Parasites on the Playa.

  11. OT: I have a friend who just paid 4k for some health coach class on the internet. http://www.healthcoachinstitute.com She has like 20 days before she can technically get a refund (though i have my doubts), but I am trying to convince her that she must get her money back, and that this will be the biggest waste of money of all time.

    Here is the thing, I can’t find anything negative on the internet to definitively show her this is garbage. There isn’t really anything good about it, outside of health coach marketing materials, but not really anything bad about.

    So I am throwing up a hail mary, as I know this group would be particularly adept at finding me any info I can to help this poor misguided wonderful girl make a good decision here. Thank you in advance.

      • You are too kind VSL, thank you. Woo I’ll look into it but, at first glance “Show me the money,” is a big ole #RedFlag. Family in town until Tuesday, but I’ll check it out. Always suspect of these “coaching” classes. It’s one thing to consult on someone’s business but if you have to teach someone how to do it, it’s likely not the profession for them and they’re being scammed out of good money.

          • The author of the article is a Forbes contributor, their opinions are their own=not a real article in Forbes.

            ANNND…never underestimate the basements own Nancy Drew, Albie, who has major skills when it comes to this stuff.

          • You hit this one out of the park entirely, Winchester. La Morgenstern is all tied up with this gaggle of grifters and has no particular credentials other than an unlimited supply of chutzpah.

            woopocalypse, maybe your friend should read Stacey’s thoughts on how to market a whole lot of nothing for a whole bunch of money here: http://www.realprosperityinc.com/lbcstacey/

        • #RedFlag
          What business doesn’t use the Co-founders’ last names or any of their team’s last names on their website? The omission of information is a manipulation of the facts as a means to decisions are made for the consumer without their full consent.
          This is enough information for me to run (not walk) away from these people.
          http://www.healthcoachinstitute.com/about/our_team

          • I really appreciate your skepticism, which I have a sense is hard won.

            Another red flag is the $4k price tag!

          • Just to add that if you look at Morgenstern’s and Peters’s LinkedIn bios, they are very brief and list their educations only as “Institute for Integrative Nutrition.”

            The Institute for Integrative Nutrition is, to put it as charitably as possible, an online school that isn’t accredited by any of the relevant governing bodies in the field of dietetics and nutrition.

    • That is a way slick site! Lots of shiny graphics and shiny people. I thought I was being sold a workshop by Mama Gena or Tony Robbins.

      What do grads actually do with their certificates?

      I’d also look up this place on Yelp, Facebook and Twittersearch. If you can figure out where they’re based, I’d check the BBB.

      And I’m with Winchester…no last names to trainers? #redflag #redflag #runaway

    • Stacey and Carey’s curriculum is regurgitated second-hand NLP + ra ra sisterhood + two-bit Marie Forleo-style “business advice.” They make millions a year off of misguided women who pay handsomely to be told how to tell others what to do.

      • Wow. Ol’ Morgenstern is as sleazy as Ali Shanti. No credentials, no experience, just total online grifter BS.

        Why get a Harvard MBA, Julia – HA HA HA – when you could attend Cookie the Clown’s Holistic MBA internet classes?!

        She is also co-creator of Holistic MBA™, the premier training for holistic practitioners and coaches who want to go from startup to 6-figures in under 12 months working from anywhere in the world. Holistic MBA™ is built on the 4 pillars of a profitable holistic business model: your mindset, your marketing, your coaching skillset and your business systems. Without working on these 4 pillars, holistic practitioners end up working too hard for too little return, which sadly leads to disenchantment and burnout!

  12. i did not realize their camp was an undercover bohemian refuge for the 1%

    brilliant strategy- sorta like the Bruce Wayne cover for batman, but in reverse

    • I just came to post this. Did I really read correctly, that the billionaire claims they feel the “brown people”? Did I dream it?

      • I didn’t read that part but they call themselves White Ocean and of course, the New York Daily News didn’t miss a chance to use “white party” (in scare quotes) in their headline.

        I ain’t even mad at their clickbait…

      • There are some interesting comments on their FB page that the only people they feed are friends of their members, and everyone else is kept out with security guards and bouncers.

        I’m sure the Camp Mystic types don’t need this because they want potential marks to attend their events and parties.

        • Do you think Camp Septic is the grifter camp? Folks like Ali and Stacey and Annie would never turn away anybody they thought they could hustle.

          • Plot twist: It was Ali who glued their doors when they wouldn’t allow her to grift her place among her fellow 1%ers.

        • Camp Mystic dreams of the comparison. Just read Ali’s delusional post about how she’s the 1% and of the “rich” people at Burning Man.

      • I also like they want a lawless utopia until someone glues their RV doors shut and cut the power to their very expensive refrigerated food. Black Rock City is really a hypocrite’s hedonism.

        • today, in, “i am rich; bad things are not supposed to happen to me, just to other people, and then it’s their fault.”
