Burning Man a success at last

by guestofaguest · September 2, 2007

Despite setbacks earlier in the week, the Burning Man successfully burned last night as scheduled, caping off what has been a tumultous year for the festival including the first suicide in the event's 21 year history.  Apparently friends of the man who hung himself mistook it as art for two hours before they realized something was up.  This leads us to question what the hell passes for "art" these days, or at least wonder what powerful shit his friends were on.

I guess the moral to the story is that when 40,000 people get together for 8 days in the desert , shit is going to happen...we're actually a bit surprised that this along with massive quantities of recreational drug abuse use is the extent of it...

 Here are pictures from this year we think are pretty neat, enjoy...
