09:05 am - What is Burning Man?
Imagine the wildest, largest rave you’ve ever seen.
Now mix in 4th of July, Halloween, and New Year’s Eve.
Add a healthy dash of Mardi Gras and Maker Faire.
Multiply by 5.
Powder everything with dust via 35 mph winds.
Bake in 100 degree heat for 5 days.
That’s Burning Man.
Note: some of the photos below the cut are NSFW. Some might argue that the sight of me in nothing but red glitter and fabulous pants is also NSFW, but I don’t care.
