The Jack Rabbit Speaks: Volume 16, Issue #20

BATHROOM BEACONS PROJECT This is just too brilliant, valuable and hysterical to NOT share with you. “We have just launched a Kickstarter Campaign for the Bathroom Beacons project, five unique art installations that will be going up around the inner-playa to make it easier for the denizens of BRC to find the portapotties at night. This will be a valuable service to everyone in the city, and we would love your support in our quest for a pee-free playa! Please consider giving us a mention the the ‘Support a Project’ section of your next newsletter. If nothing else, our video is pretty amusing, and I think a lot of people will get a kick out of it.

The Holy Scoundrel – Burning Man: What is it?

I see a string of bright white LEDs about fifty yards away. I know that those lights mark a couple of bowling lanes (a big hit this year) and I know that there are classic hard plastic chairs taken right out of an old bowling alley at the end of the lanes and that the computer screens that normally show you your score are actually playing The Big Lebowski in rotation twenty for hours a day.

Welcome To My Brain – Burning Man: I loved it and not so much

Bowling at night in the middle of the desert. Meeting a couple sitting at the lanes who had both lost the people they were hanging out with. Finding themselves in the same predicament, they decided to make it their first date. It began by watching “The Big Lebowski” together, which was playing on the screens at the bowling lanes … out in the middle of … nothing. […]
