Off to the playa tomorrow...
...with THIS thing...
...which will shoot 20-to-30-foot fireballs [not to mention the massive cannon, and the spinner whirligig that'll come out of the very center]...
...from atop a 65-foot bamboo tower covered in interactive LEDs [and lasers up top].
The contraption in the photo [which has since been embellished/optimized/etc.] was built by a few scruffy kids and myself [about seven-ish of us] up in soggy NorCal.
Doing errands to get ready for the Burn today has been a delirious escapade involving a ferris wheel and beanbag fight.
Also: it's my birthday today.
Also: desert rain.
