So we have to admit we are a little jealous to hear about the hot weather in San Francisco these past several days. San Francisco in the summer is just plain magic — people outside, hot nights, noise and life; no other place like it, the four or five times a year it happens.
Speaking of the weather, it looks like we’re going to have a little out here. It’s been both ungodly hot and pretty damn cold this week. And the forecast for Sunday says … wait for it … rain. Possible thunderstorms with a 30 percent chance of precipitation.
It does rain out here. I’ve only experienced very short bursts, which are often followed by amazing rainbows. But it CAN rain hard. Read your Burning Man Survival Guide on how to react. The most important thing is to be cool, and stay where you are. If you try to drive, you’ll just get stuck. Tune to playa radio BMIR 94.5 for the latest info.
But just stay cool.
It was drawing night at the Ghetto last night. The Ghetto is where the DPW crew camps.
Porcelain set up the stage and arranged chairs and provided drawing materials. Peaches and Weld Boy and Meredith and Phoenix and a bunch of other people did the modeling, and there were lots of people rotating into spots at the tables.
Weld Boy drove his trencher into the posing area and made it a part of his pose. He was upside down, and that he held the position for 10 minutes is just plain amazing.
I don’t draw. I wish I did, but I don’t. But Logan had said at the early meeting that he puts pen to paper almost every day, which I thought was cool.
It was a night to put the camera down, but here’s what I came up with using pen and pencil.
