This video is part two of a three part series of Burning Man 2007 videos from Hedy Sirico. I think it's a great testament to how much work goes on inside theme camps before they even get to Burning Man.In this video we go behind the scenes as the Putt Putt Playa theme camp prepares for the event. About 2/3's of the footage documents all the blood and sweat, spit and polish (not to mention elbow

Ricky Vegas is a longtime listener of BURNcast who for years my campmates would tell me "You have a fan that came by and he is hot!" True that, folks, as you can see.

I met Stephanie for the first (and only time) inside the Memortrees installation at Burning Man 2009 as I was attempting to escape the heat of the afternoon playa.

Earlier this week I featured a video that was shot at Burning Man on an iPhone. Today I'm sharing a video I took the day after the Man burned in '09.

Prior to turning on my video camera she had just expressed her opinion about
Burning Man 2009 from Glenn Robert Lym on Vimeo.This week on BURNcast.TV we'll be covering the topic of "Cellphones @ Burning Man" which was percolating as a rumor for many months leading up to the event at last year's burn. In fact, come early August '09, the BM blog posted that coverage was available in Gerlach. John Curley wrote: "Isn’t that weird? You can check your email; you can get calls,
Ai,yai, yai! @Chai_Guy recently tweeted an article in Gawker that doesn't paint a pretty picture of Mark Pincus, Founder of Tribe.net and CEO of Zynga.Sad to say, but the article makes Pincus come out looking like a douche.Here's a quote:Tribe.net, which fizzled, Pincus told Details, because there was "nothing to do" there once had brought "all these people together... it's like a [bad] cocktail party."

This episode was first released over two years ago on July 11, 2007 so the topics on the BURNcast Community Bulletin Board segment are somewhat dated. The reason I thought it should make it to the Greatest Hits week (or maybe better to say make it in "repeats") is that it features an interview Louise Johnson who (along with her husband Phil Stripling) runs the Civilized Explorer, a website for Burners

A word from the filmmaker:"Back in '04, Mattypoo found a gentle man wandering on the playa with a cattle prod. It turned out he was an "experientialist". He told Mattypoo, "This will hurt a lot, but then you will feel amazing and you'll want to hug me."As promised, it sucked for a moment and then Mattypoo gave the mendicant priest a big hug. Delicious Dan loves hugs, so he was inspired to open up his
