Video from Burning Man

Posted in Burning Man, Personal News at 10:37 pm by divinity

Halcyon (who I had a brief minute to meet) has a great video of Burning Man 2006. The intro describes the vibe very well:

“The playa removes all barriers to self-expression. All the voices in your own head and that come from outside of you that make you dwell in doubt and shame and judgement. Those things are gone and when you take those things away it is amazing what is possible. It is amazing who we are when we can look at ourselves clearly. And when you’ve got a city full of people that aren’t saying “oh you shouldn’t of worn that” or “isn’t he too old to be doing that” but instead are saying “yeaahh! good for you, sing it louder, scream it, dance harder, express it with more feeling.” You’ve got those voices lifting you up. It’s amazing how high you can reach.”

    It was John Halcyon Styn that got me first interested in blogging in the late 90s. I was a huge fan of Prehensile Tales. He was also the first guy I’ve sent a message to from the internet to a pager. It’s weird seeing him all over the internets still.
