Music Makes You Lose Control

 So, as of late my University and all of their crap policies is going to just that- crap. And its beginning to make the prospect of taking a semester off and modeling myself after Emile Hirsch’s character in Into The Wild that much more appealing. So, if anyone is near or around the Nevada area anytime soon, I suggest that you try out the life of The Burning Man. Its like taking an abstract art gallery and Woodstock and making it into one big party. It’s amazing, the people are great, the food is great (And you know me and food) the atmosphere is just incredible. I personally suggest it.

THE ART OF BURNING MAN

Burning Man is much more than just a temporary community. It’s a city in the desert, dedicated to radical self reliance, radical self-expression and art. Innovative sculpture, installations, performance, theme camps, art cars and costumes all flower from the playa and spread to our communities and back again. In this section you will learn what you need to know about creating art for the playa, find out all about this year’s art installations, read essays about Burning Man and art from both staff and participants, and revisit some past off-playa art events and exhibitions.

Our mission is to promote and support interactive public art, even beyond our event. TheBlack Rock Arts Foundation has been established for that purpose, and focuses on community art at our regional events.

“We dance for laughter, we dance for tears, we dance for madness, we dance for fears, we dance for hopes, we dance for screams, we are the dancers, we create the dreams.”
                                                              
“Night has always pushed up day, you must know life to see decay”
“To stop the flow of music would be like the stopping of time itself, incredible and inconceivable.”
“Music is love in search of a word.”
                                                          “Music takes us out of the actual and whispers to us dim secrets that startle our wonder as to who we are, and for what, whence, and whereto.”
               
“I’ve never known a musician who regretted being one. Whatever deceptions life may have in store for you, music itself is not going to let you down.”
                                 “Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
                 

“I’m going to buy back memories, To awaken some old qualities. Have I got a long to run.”

 
 
                                                “You can be my someone you can be my scene. There’s oceans in between us, but thats not very far…”
