Q&A Session With Larry Harvey and Marian Goodell

In May 2008, Larry Harvey and Marian Goodell paid a visit to the Vancouver Burner community to celebrate the DVD release of the cult classic Juicy Danger Meets Burning Man.

Following the premiere, there was a Q&A session where Larry and Marian answered questions directly from the Vancouver community. Ever wonder about Larry’s thoughts on social change, or his vision of the future of Burning Man culture?

Now you can witness his and Marian’s responses to these questions and more here.

Everywhere Lane

Greetings friends!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything. I just have to share with everyone how freaking excited I am getting about the creation of Everywhere Lane on the playa.

Everywhere Lane is going to be located at 6:15 and Esplanade and is THE place to stop by to find out what is happening in the Burning world year-round.

The Regional Network Center will be open from 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM daily with real, live Regional Contacts on hand to answer your questions and help you get connected to your local burner community.

Burners without Borders, the Black Rock Arts Foundation and Black Rock Solar will be our neighbors.

We’re working hard to collaborate and create a unique way to meet the folks working to keep the fires burning year-round.

Not long now. We head out next week to start construction on Everywhere Lane. More coming soon.

Until then.

Giddyup!

A New York Minute

What better spot to stop off after a visit to Playa del Fuego than Manhattan and the Five Burroughs for a few days? This was an action-packed, blink-of-the-eye visit to NY.

Have you heard of Governors Island? It’s a little isle on the Hudson that used to belong to the military and government. It boasts two different forts from the war of 1812 as well as military quarters for the officers stationed there. After 9/11, President Bush sold the island to NY for $1. It now hosts a slew of cultural and temporary events and things are currently ramping up there for Summer 2008. Read more »

Playa del Fuego!

Perhaps you recall an entry made last July that paid a visit to Assateague Island, the birthplace of Playa del Fuego. Welcome back dear readers to a visit to the actual PDF event.

PDF occurs twice a year, once in the spring and again in October. It’s held outside of Odessa, DE on land owned and operated by the DE chapter of the Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club. It’s a special treat to be granted the use of their space on Memorial Day Weekend. Read more »

Juicy Danger Meets Burning Man!

Have you ever seen Juicy Danger Meets Burning Man?! I bet not. It’s a little cult classic documentary about two circus performers from Canada who made the trek to their first burn way back in 1997. It’s a sweet little love story and adventure, (complete with chainsaws!) back in time to a Burn of years past. The film was released on VHS 10 years ago and has just been re-released on DVD.

What better reason to pay a visit to Vancouver, BC to attend the DVD release party and check out what the Vancouver Burner community is up to.
