well, after careful consideration with the 'board members' of burning man north....we have decided we will hold this years spendor in the desert regions of kamloops. so, without further nonsense, we are letting you know, mom, that we will be decending upon your region sometime in mid-august. **** - i just realized pea - help - we can't do this - 'member a couple of years ago, all those houses kinda burnt up to a crisp..... hmmm, this will take more careful consideration on the part of pea (who made the flaky suggestion to start with) and myself (the one-who-realized-it-wouldn't-work )

any suggestions politely received and considered

You all seen the Wicker Man? I had no idea. I'm surprised nobody listed that movie as a cult favourite

You should. It's...disturbing to say the least. It's what inspired the Burning Man festival.....

Burning Man is a bunch of crazed devil worshipers is it not?

It celebrates modern privatism, Mr.Mom. Nothing to do with devil wordhipping.

I saw a doc and one of the organisers said it was a Pagan ritual the whole thing was based on

wordhipping.

Is this a new word?

I was told it was a bunch of people getting together to burn a wicker/wood effigy like in the movie the Wicker man.

Definately Pagan. Which is what the people in the movie were and why they burned a man inside a wicker effigy. along with an assortment of barn animals.

I think I'll put that on business cards..."freelance journalism, research, technical writing, and wordhipping."

way too kewl....i love it! wordhipping, that's my mantra now....
yeah, well the whole pagan side of the thingee makes it workee....that's why we get so 'wild' around fire - god, never leave a can of gas around....especially men and boys....everyone, i swear everyone, is a closet pyro. at least in my house.

we can still dance around the fire, and act stupid

Hey, guess what? I may have been wrong about the burning man festival.

What I was thinking about was the wicker man festival. Same idea though.....

In port alberni you can burn in your back yard right in town. Coz they got the mars water bombers sitting on the lake there. :P Nothing like the old campfire everynight with some baby duck and a few crazy mamas. Most places no, or you have to have a permit. And not during high fire season.
