While BURNcast is devoted to the art, culture and community of Burning Man, I feel it's important -- and only fair -- to give voice to the people of Nevada who live in the area of Black Rock City the other 51 weeks of the year.This video submission doesn't paint a very pretty picture of Burning Man. It was shot by citizen journalist and YouTuber who goes by the handle desertlovernv as she describes
Today on the BURNcast Facebook fan page I received a comment from Alex (remember him? he can be heard in the BURNcast audio podcast episode number 83 entitled "The Green Shoes Installation") who said "Your website crashes my browser and doesn't load properly.

Another epic video from Mastahnick who writes: "Can't stop believing how every minute on the playa is sooo unpredictable. First you're watching someone getting reborn as they fall through a life-size rebirthing tube (hilarious!), and next thing you know it... you're singing and dancing along to GLEE songs! Awesome!"

In this playlist of three totally kick ass videos you'll get to experience skydiving -- however vicariously and vicerally -- at Burning Man 2010!The first video is mine. I took it at Tony and Laura's wedding near the Temple of Flux on the Giant Cock Car. Before the ceremony I looked up and saw several skydivers making their way down.The second video is from the folks at Burning Sky camp
From inkandmask: "This is a video montage of my virgin burn. Definitely the most intense experience of my life. I miss it already."
For your lunchtime fix: two Burning Man 2010 videos with extra phat bass! Can I get some bacon with that?
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. One day early last year Ricky wrote me fan letter and now here we are: decompressing over lunch in Los Angeles as he makes his way back to Arizona.In this video Ricky talks about his experiences of 2010, his gift to the citizens of Black
I guess I'm into moody/ambient/downtempo Burning Man music videos today. Here's a couple of extra bonus videos to get you through Tu-tu-Tuesday. Can you imagine what Hump Day will be like? :)These videos from 1MoreLife were shot in 2009. But you almost can't tell in the first one entitled "Angel Dust". If I could give out an award for videos this one would score well in "Best Use of Playa".

The Minty Fresh Gift Ring: RecapAt the beginning. (photo by Veganskater)More for myself then anybody else, although I'm hoping that others take an interest, I decided to chronicle the "Minty Fresh Gift Ring" that was my installation in the Center Camp Cafe. It started out life as a way to do something with all the used Altoid™ tins I had in the back of my car. What can I say, minty fresh
A lot of folks want to know what happened to the Burning Man Earth team's GeoEye satellite image of Black Rock City that was slated for 2 September, 2010 at precisely 11:41 a.m. It looks like at this time the GeoEye website is only featuring imagery of Black Rock City taken from Wednesday (the day before) however there's a couple of photos from Thursday available for viewing at BME's Facebook

I have always wanted to do a lip dub at Burning Man but I don't think I could pull one off as awesome as this one. In this video Groovehoops throws it down to Al Green's "Full of Fire".
From the the videographer Shibby4984: After another awesome trip to Burning Man I have again assembled a compilation of the video that I was able to capture before my camera batteries died at this year's burn. I hope all my friends from the playa and everywhere else enjoy this presentation. )'(

In this sex positive podcast by our friends Freddy & Eddy there's actually not too much sex, but lots of good feelings and positive energy as they recount their trip to Burning Man 2010. Good friend Jamye Waxman, who also attended the week long Nevada festival, joins them to spin stories, seek meaning, and explore the impact of the playa on our lives the rest of the year.

It was a very good year:2010 was a truly amazing year at the big camping trip for my camp. Our bar got lovely Esplanade placement, our camp-mates pulled together beautifully to make our public space a place that people felt comfortable and wanted to spend time in. We threw Bootie one night, did a live radio simulcast from the bar, had Culann's Hounds play a great afternoon set,
