8:15 pm Countdown to Sunset
I propose that a mass countdown be lead by someone (me?) just before the sun sets each evening. The problem is that sunset will appear to occur slightly earlier at the one end of came than at the other.The solution is to perform the countdown at the man. 30 Seconds before the sun sets completely we all might chant “30, 29, 28…3, 2, 1″ and just then the last visible ray of light disappers from the view of those assembled at the man. If this idea has taken place in the past, I didn’t see it. I was only there in 1998 and only at the man at sunset one evening. If the countdown is published in the newspaper and or on the radio, etc. the crowd will spontaneously participate, I hope. Thanks for Listening See you There, Mike Sines

12:00 PM The Fandango Glockenspiel
The amazingly life-like Fandango Glockenspiel strikes the hour, and a motley collection of fools emerge from the clocktower, perform various tasks for your amusement, and then return from whence they came.

Come by, slap on some lederhosen, and help us mark the passage of mid-day, and, later, the coming of night. (Any very-short performance art welcome.) Fandango.

The record of time will be marked in the sun’s effect on wax figures placed on the colored panels. We will place one of the six pinwheel panels on the ground each beginning day at midnight so the clock is built as it also records the time in melted wax. All Black Rock Citizens are invited to bring some wax, soften it in the sun a bit, shape a figure or personal icon, and place it on the panel of the day. The entire piece will be ritually burned the night the MAN burns.

Look for our camp somewhere within Black Rock City. Drop by and say hi (that is, if we’re at home and not out seeing and experiencing all of your wonderful creations. if we are, just look for the fat guy and the skinny dude in colorful desert attire).

The trouble is, many people may desire to be on the receiving end of the water gun blast, so we may need to figure out some strategy or rules to make sense out of this. One possibility might be a ‘water gun execution’ where the spectators can shoot their favorite (out of a group) individual (something like an un-popularity contest). Other ideas can be submitted in advance on the web site or email burningmannude@hotmail.com, or at the No Tanline Camp on the playa, where we will initially meet before moving out onto the playa for the Games to begin.

Tuesday night might be trial & error getting the projector set up, and we should run error free Wed. to Friday (No movie Sat. the night of the burn). We may try to show some of these during the day if we have anyway to have the screen visiable. Come to the No Tanline Camp.

Temple of Godys – Personal Yoni Prints
Temple of Godys, 7:33 to 7:36 Mercury

We feature woman-positive activities, including the ever-popular personal yoni prints, free chai, and safe sex information. For those unaware, yoni is sanskrit for a woman’s vulva, the beautiful petals of the inner and outer lips of her womanhood. Last year’s event, “The Reverie Sun & Moon Church of Yonification,” featured a pink silk decorated shrine and a single yoni print station. New to the Burning experience, we learned alot about the joys of helping our visitors artfully memorialize their yonis on paper. We urged our followers to rethink, reprogram, and rededicate themselves to yonihanced pleasure and the scrumptious, lustful greedy pursuit of sensual fulfillment, opening up to the healing, manifesting power and joy of their divine womanly gift. This year, we invite you to participate. Choose from one of our three semi-private yoni print sanctuaries. Lean back into a luxurious pile of soft pillows, sip some hot or cold chai, and allow a lover, friend, or one of our handmaidens to assist you in painting your most secret spots. Decorate and adorn, dab, sprinkle and brush your creation with paint colors that span the rainbow. We use nothing but completely safe water-based paints and provide you with fresh aloe-vera enriched baby wipes for after-painting cleanups. Once your masterpiece is complete, we can help you (or your consort) press a sacred Temple scroll to the artwork, forever capturing every fine detail. Create your own beautiful and intensely personal artwork in our camp 24 hours a day.
