The first annual Burning Man was held in August 2003, the Lindens had added some new regions to the north with color names, I don’t remember exactly which ones were reserved for Burning Man, just that one of them was Chartreuse.
This is a picture of a good friend and former neighbor of mine, Daemioth Sklar.
Someone there at the Burning Man built an altar to Hamlet Linden, now know as Hamlet Au. Here he is admiring the altar!
Another shot of the Burning Man Venue, I am in the forefront, the fellow at the rear with the pony tail and sword is Ironchef Cook. Ironchef built the Koolaid Man which was a big hit, unfortunately I have searched and searched and can’t find a picture of it.
Crowcatcher Valen built this cross. If you look in the foreground you can see a pool. That was my contribution to Burning Life. Ananda Sandgrain built some mud baths and made muddy outfits for everyone to wear. So I had the bright idea to make a pool to clean up in after the mud bath. I found a foamy seawater texture and made it rotate slightly and voilá a sudsy pool. It was a hit,,, hehehe
I am in my camo shorts in the foreground
There was a gathering toward the closing of the Burning Man, I was there but can’t tell you what was discussed. You can get an idea of what our UI was like in those days. Wow, I had L$17,074! Remember those were the days when we only lived on Linden stipend and what we could sell. We had to pay taxes for rezzing prims, light, land tax etc, etc, etc,
The picture of the Burning Man…
Chat at you all later!
