Burning Man Update: The Jack Rabbit Speaks
Volume 10, Issue #23 (hello, lucky number!)
May 31, 2006



WAIT...please read below for what happened last week!

SO....what was all that, then? Before you go reaching for the unsub 
button, please let us explain why you got those three random messages 
about unsubscribing from the list. See, an enthusiastic volunteer tried 
to solve a problem on a bunch of other announce lists, and that fix 
resulted in the accidental removal of moderator status on ALL the lists, 
and three administrator messages making their way to all the subscribers 
on *this* announce list before we realized the goof. It was immediately 
fixed, and we're extremely sorry for the error. Your email address is 
still secure with us and has not been compromised, we swear...and yes, 
it's been a while since you heard from the Jack Rabbit. Between our 
server switch and some shuffling behind the scenes on the JRS staff, 
we've been...well, saving it all up for you today, and it's all right 
here, and worth the wait, or so we hope.

Like what, you ask? Well, we're proud to bring you the 2005 Afterburn 
Report at http://afterburn.burningman.com. The Afterburn is our annual 
soup-to-nuts look at how things went at the last event, and an in-depth 
report from all the subteams it takes to make Burning Man a reality. Be 
the first on your block to bust out a cite when someone asks you where 
all the ticket money goes!

We're also getting up on those deadlines it's time to think about: DMV, 
for example. (And don't forget to check http://www.burningman.com to see 
what others are upon us: Theme Camps, Art Installations, this means 
you!) To get you in the mood, we've included a link to all of this 
year's funded art project descriptions, and three more in the series of 
BURNcasts, the participant-created podcast about the Burning Man community.

And if you're looking to plug in this year and get more involved with 
Black Rock City, check it out: you could train to be a Ranger, sling 
coffee or craft for Center Camp, or plug in to one of several 
participant projects, greet, enter data, share a truck, help an eager 
filmmaker tell the story of Burners Without Borders, or participate in 
this weekend's Flambe Lounge...you know? There's just a lot you can do 
to get your hands dusty.

Um, Flambe wha...? Yes, that's right, there's just no sleep when you're 
on fire. Hot on the heels of the GORGEOUS Fire Arts Exposition last 
weekend in San Francisco, Burning Man presents Flambe Lounge this 
Saturday at The Pound! See below for details. And there are more fun 
events coming up - fundies for the Flaming Lotus Girls, for Thunderdome, 
and more...not to mention an expanded Harmony Festival in Sonoma that 
should be out of this world, and events in London and elsewhere.

Another reminder: the deadline to get your playa event in the What, 
Where, When (we know, some of you have been asking after it!) is coming 
up on July 19th... put your item on the Playa Calendar to appear in the 
print edition - http://www.burningman.com/calendar/playa/day.php.

And now, on with the show. Stand by next week for info on upcoming 
special issues of the JRS for RESOURCES and BIKES...and watch for the 
news to get even more regular, because in case you haven't looked at the 
calendar lately...? Yeah. 94 days until the burn.

THANK YOUR FOR YOUR PUBLIC COMMENTS TO THE BLM!

As you know, we issued a Call To Action for our community to tell the 
Bureau of Land Management (BLM) that we do not agree with proposed 
stipulations that would allow the BLM to charge Burning Man even more 
money and also give law enforcement the unfettered discretion to evict 
participants from Black Rock City.  In less than one week the Burning 
Man community rallied by sending at least 2,221 emails and 298 letters 
to the BLM voicing disagreement with the proposed stipulations. Rock on!

(The official number of emails and letters was probably even higher, but 
we are only able to count the letters and emails where participants also 
sent copies to Burning Man headquarters.  We'll get the official count 
from the BLM in the near future.)  Thank you all for the deluge of 
wonderful comments and support!

Burning Man and the BLM's officials are continuing to communicate to 
resolve outstanding issues. Thanks to your incredible, articulate 
support and the support of Pershing County, we are confident that we 
will reach a palatable agreement with the BLM very soon.  Stay tuned!

APPLY NOW FOR DMV PERMITS - JUNE 30 DEADLINE

The time to apply for Mutant Vehicle and Disable Persons Vehicle permits 
is NOW!!!!!!

Hello to all you Mutant Vehicle creators out there.  This is just a 
reminder to you all that if you wish to bring a Mutant Vehicle to share 
with the masses at Burning Man this year, you MUST preregister with the 
Department of Mutant Vehicles. And please take note, to leave us enough 
time to process your application and get back to everyone before The Man 
actually burns, we have moved the deadline to apply up two weeks to JUNE 
30th. We think this will work out better for all involved. The DMV has 
started  to process applications, so now is the time to get them in. The 
longer you wait the more build up for us to process and the longer it 
takes for us to get back to you. So the sooner the better is the name of 
the game.

Also open is the Disabled Persons Vehicle Permit Application, so if you 
are in need of special driving privileges, you must also pre apply for this.

Make sure to check the website for information on vehicles and driving 
at Black Rock City.
http://www.burningman.com/on_the_playa/playa_vehicles/index.html
And follow the links to the applications.

DEADLINE is JUNE 30TH!!! Apply now!

We can't wait to see you and your fabulous creations on the playa!

PERSONAL USE VIDEO AGREEMENT AND MEDIA AT BURNING MAN

As you might know, if you're bringing any kind of camera to Burning Man 
that captures moving imagery you will use for personal use (that is, 
showing to friends and family, only) you'll be asked to sign a Personal 
Use Agreement in Black Rock City before you are allowed to film. These 
agreements are available at the Greeters' station, as well as at Playa 
Information and the two Ranger outposts...BUT, you can save some time 
and print yours out to bring with you.

Before we give you the link, though, we must point out that our dear 
readers should NOT mail this form back to Burning Man. Simply hang onto 
it with your tickets and other stuff to have ready when you arrive at 
BRC. You can't film until you are handed a tag in exchange for your form 
- having it early just gives you a chance to review and sign so when you 
get to the Greeters, you're set to go. Got that? OK. The link to the 
page with the form: 
http://www.burningman.com/preparation/event_survival/video_cameras.html

AND, if you're with the media and you're trying to register a larger 
project, please stand by. We hope in the next few days at 
http://www.burningman.com/press. We'll be sure to post to JRS as soon as 
it's ready. Thanks for your patience.

GOT KATRINA? PHOTOS AND FOOTAGE FROM HURRICANE RESPONSE ON/OFF PLAYA NEEDED

As many of you know, there was an outpouring of effort from the Burning 
Man community to help aid the victims of Hurricane Katrina last year, 
one that began on the playa and continued though this spring.  Tom 
Price, a member of our staff who spent several months with Burners 
Without Borders along the Gulf Coast, is working on a short documentary 
film about those efforts, and is seeking footage and photos from those 
who may have experienced any part of that relief effort.

Tom is looking in particular for photographs and video of the efforts on 
the playa--around Media Mecca, in the Cafe, and during Exodus--of people 
raising money and supplies to help out....OR, if you have any aerial 
footage of BRC 2005, or a good montage of the event on the ground 
(Katrina-related, or not) he'd love to see that as well. Caveat: footage 
must be delivered ASAP, since the production timeline is short. If you 
have some you'd like to volunteer for this project, or images/video from 
the disaster zone itself, please contact him directly: 
price_tom@hotmail.com

Footage may be sent directly to Tom Price, PO box 4793 Jackson, 83001

2006 RANGER TRAINING

Black Rock Ranger Trainer Splinter Sez:

Greetings current, former and potential future Black Rock Rangers. Our 
training season is in full swing. The next training is this weekend at 
Flipside!

In order to volunteer your time at Burningman as a Black Rock Ranger you 
must have attended the event at least once and you must attend a one day 
training session. We have been working hard on the Rangering program and 
are working on some changes that may entice some of you former Rangers 
back. For more on that, come to a training!!!!

To start the whole process of volunteering as a Black Rock Ranger, go to 
the volunteer page on the Burningman web site and fill out the volunteer 
questionaire. Be sure to check the "Rangers" box under "Volunteer Team 
Interests". Then, go to the Ranger training schedule and pick a training 
session in your area. We are looking forward to seeing and meeting all 
you Rangers this year.

Bestest,
Splinter

CENSUS: SIT DOWN AND TYPE, THAT OTHERS MAY STAND UP AND BE COUNTED

Calling all laptop cowpoke, midnight web surfers, ethnography junkies 
and data entry mavens! The Black Rock City 2005 census team is looking 
for a few good geeks. If you've got a computer, an internet connection 
and a few hours over the next month, you can be a huge, huge help.

Each year we collect thousands of paper census forms on the playa and 
then bring them home to be data entered. This is a great chance for 
those of you who don't live in the SF Bay area to get involved in 
contributing something to your community! The Black Rock City census is 
an important part of the project and touches many aspects of the event 
as well as our larger community - from helping in our dealings with 
Nevada and federal officials to providing a historical record of who we 
are and where we come from.

If you'd like to help, please send an email to census@burningman.com. 
One of us will get back to you about mailing forms to you to work on 
from home.

Thanks a million.

- The 2005 census team

THEME CAMPs: GET YOUR GREETER ON....TOGETHER

To all Theme Camps: In previous years theme camps have really made 
Greeting a true representation of our city.  We encourage camps to bring 
their sounds and craziness to the Greeters' station and do a shift 
together! Remember that the purpose is to be of service to those 
arriving home but also to have as much fun as can be had and still 
fulfill our mission as Greeters.

This announcement is an alert to get your requests for a shift in NOW!!! 
  For those camps that have enjoyed greeting in the past and for those 
camps that are new to greeting, NOW is the time to check with your 
campmates and let us know that your camp is interested in greeting.

We invite you to submit your camps request for a 4 hour shift that you 
and your campmates would like to greet.  Remember shifts start at 12, 4 
and 8.  A normal shift is for 20 greeters.

This year we would like an estimate of how many greeters your camp will 
be able to provide for the shift.  If your camp is very large and could 
fill more than one shift let us know and we might be able to find a 
second shift for them.  If your camp is smaller and could not fill the 
full 20 slots, that is not a problem as we will fill the remainder with 
individual volunteers.

For information or to submit a shift request, please contact Dragon at 
dragonsfire66@aol.com

This project still needs you to bring out pieces of this enormous 
puzzle.  Right now we have about 1000 pieces spoken for, but we need 
5000 to make the complete picture.  Each piece is simply a square of 
fabric a bit over 3 feet by 3 feet.  If you can bring 5 to 10 pieces, 
then we can do this with 500 people or so.  The project also needs 
donations of items we'll need to build and layout the image, things like 
lights for the perimeter, a generator, electrical cords, rebar stakes, 
30,000 feet of rope, etc.

To get involved, check out our web site at http://projectmegapixels.org 
or email Sputnik at dan.eklund at gmail.com

In other good news, we have confirmation that the satellite picture of 
BRC will be taken again this year.  Probably late in the week, exact day 
not known yet.

But wait, there is something in it for you...

Send us 6 or more panties and we'll send you one back with "The Man",

great philosophies, so we thought you might enjoy hearing about it too.

UK/EUROBURNERS: "51 WEEKS' BURNING EVENT, JUNE 2
An exploration and celebration of Burner culture beyond Burning Man

#5 entry. June 2nd, 7:30pm, at The Horse Hospital, Colonnade, nr Russell 
Square, London WC1N 1HX

Burning Man is famous for attracting 35,000 individuals every year, who 
come together to build a city and spend a week in a temporary community 
based upon the principles of radical self expression, radical self 
reliance, no commodification, and leave no trace. Perhaps more 
impressive, however, is the world wide community that has grown around 
this event: a community which comes together not only to help and 
support each other in the logistically difficult task of preparing to 
spend a week in one of the world's most hostile environments, but also 
strive to keep the principles of the event alive for the rest of the year.

51 Weeks' Burning is an evening of celebration of this community, and 
discussion of why this community exists and what it does. The evening 
will include:

     * A photography exhibition by NK Guy and Dave Bradshaw. The photos 
will include a series of diptychs comparing London town and Black Rock 
City, studio portraits from London Decompression and other pictures from 
the event.
     * A film screening
     * A talk by Ashley Satorius on the principles of gifting economies 
and the potential for self regeneration in the wider world.
     * "We Are Not At Burning Man", a performance lecture by Tessa 
Wills, leading into a discussion on "coming home"
     * A panel discussion between Geoff Dyer (author of "Yoga For the 
People Who Can't Bothered To Do It"), Garth Cartwright (author of 
"Journey's With Gypsies") and Mark Pilkington (editor of Strange 
Attractor Journal) on the nature and development of alternative cultures 
and a live video link to Los Angeles with Brian Doherty (author of "This 
Is Burning Man").
     * Pete Johnson describing the process and challenges involved in 
creating Nowhere, Europe's regional burn based upon the principles of 
Burning Man.
