i know everyone shit talks BM now (and for good reason) but I've heard the smaller regionals are still pretty cool. Anyways, I thought these pics of the austin flipside BM were pretty cool, so I'd like to check it out sometime.

Finding My Phoenix at Burning Flipside (A Regional Burning Man Event)

Imagine a community that accepts you wholly and completely. Or one that is a magical, whimsical world full of art and performance. Or maybe a place that you can find music 24 hours a day and people are begging you to come and join in on the fun. That place… is Flipside (our regional Burning Man event). It was almost a religious experience for me, and I’m not sure I could do it justice putting it into words.

Let’s just say that it nourished my soul and single-handedly made me jump back onto that Over Yonderlust horse after it was done. I had been inspired.

More than anything, it helped me let go of all the negativity that had been following us

BY BURNING IT TO THE GROUND.
Both literally and metaphorically, I watched the embers turn to ashes.

I was new.

Nothing says rebellion from the status quo like a government motors chest piece. Man, kids sure do love sparkly stuff. Maybe with enough sparkly stuff and spirit hoodz we could tear down the state brah.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $50.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $50.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $50.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
