The Man Gets A Head  »  Ron's Log
Click for more photos shot today by John Curley. I'm wondering what they were doing to the Man's butt when this photo was taken. Members of my camp are kind of spread out. We've got two guys with early arrival tickets who are on the playa right now. Most of the RV/trailer guys started out earlier today and are camped somewhere between here and there. And then there's me and the other tent guys who are still "packing" which really means wandering the house wondering where that thing is I just have to have. The gate opens in 38 hours. ...

Some Residents Of Brookline Are Offended  »  Ron's Log
At least 100 offended Brookline, Massachusetts, residents have been offended and demand - demand I say, to have New England Treatment Access Inc.'s provisional medical marijuana license to be stripped from them for the heinous, heinous crime of Lack Of College Degree. Makes you shudder, doesn't it? "[T]he Globe reported that its executive director, Kevin Fisher, wrongly claimed on the dispensary applications that he had a college degree." "Fisher resigned his position with New England Treatment last weekend, and the company assured state regulators he would have no further role in its operations." But that's not good enough - ...

Best Temple Video  »  Ron's Log
Certainly the best photographed video of last year's Temple burn (that I've yet seen). The Temple will burn some time after 8 PM (Pacific time) on Sunday, August 31. You should be able to see it via live streaming at this link but it won't look as good as this video. They are keeping this year's design under wraps (figuratively), which is why we've seen no photos of its construction yet. ...

DUI Checkpoint in DHS Friday, August 22  »  Ron's Log
Lead Up to Labor Day Brings DUI Crackdown to Desert Hot Springs Desert Hot Springs Police Department Reminds Everyone to Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Labor Day weekend is coming up. For many Americans, that means an extra day off, backyard and beach barbecues, visiting friends and family, and the unofficial end of the summer season. Unfortunately, it also means a sharp increase in drunk-driving-related fatalities. Now through Labor Day, September 1, Desert Hot Springs Police Department will be aggressively targeting drunk and drugged drivers as part of a nationwide effort to end impaired driving and save lives. The Drive Sober ...

No Stinkin' Dubstep DJs Needed  »  Ron's Log
Some genius (named either Anita or Martin) has devised some software that will create endless dubstep with no repeats. It runs on a phone. A sample: They've put this system with its phone into a box with a lot of speakers and they're bringing it to Burning Man. Ho hum, right? I wouldn't walk over to Playoffs for dubstep night. But here comes the real gee-whiz part: humans can interact with the system to step up the intensity of the music by turning a handcrank (like on a Model T) until it reaches a level the program considers sufficient ...

Adam Lambert & Queen  »  Ron's Log
A full 2 hour, 10 minute concert with Adam Lambert filling Freddy Mercury's role. Bohemian Rhapsody begins at 1:54:24 but it's the very short version, like what they used to play on Top 40 radio, when they played this on Top 40 radio. ...

Eight Clothing Optional Gay Resorts  »  Ron's Log
Gay Cities lists what they think are the eight best gay clothing optional resorts in the U.S. Palm Springs is the only city with more than one resort listed, and it's got three! Tortuga del Sol. Escape. Inndulge. Wow, I think the central photo on their home page is the same one they were using when I first stayed there nearly 20 years ago. Probably they've photoshopped those shorts into different colors since then, though. ...

Euro NATO Joint Jet Pilot Training With GoPros  »  Ron's Log
Somewhere in the U.S. Class 14-07 was given the unique opportunity to fly with GoPro cameras in the cockpit of Euro NATO Joint Jet Pilot Training's (ENJJPT) T-6A Texan II and T-38C Talon aircraft. The above video chronicles 55 weeks of undergraduate pilot training for 14-07, but is a tribute to all classes past, present, and future. ...

"art, self-expression, and self-reliance"  »  Ron's Log
Who else but Parade magazine would publish the very first 100% G-rated article explaining Burning Man. Written at whatever level Parade writes at (6th grade?) and no hint of drugs, sex, nudity, controversy. It's art. All art. Just art. (Some craft). And then we burn it. "Honey, I read there's a lovely art festival going on just north of Gerlach. Let's take a drive after lunch, shall we?!" I'm recommending closeted Burners use this article as a starting point when they try to explain to their grandma (or whomever) why they couldn't make it to the Labor Day ...

Director John Brown's Farewell Address  »  Ron's Log
John Brown has really, finally reached his last month as a Director for the Mission Springs Water District. Today at the board meeting there was cake, balloons, lemonade and his farewell speech: I just want to say that when I first decided to run for the water district it wasn't because I wanted to change something or fix something. It was really because I think I, like 'most everybody in our community, felt that the water district is a strong water district, does manage its resources well, does a great job. I just really wanted to be part of that ...
