Fandom gone awry?

Who Put the Donk in the JL421 Badonkadonk?

Yet more proof that Burning Man has gone completely corporate – these things are for sale. When you build it for a personal toy, that’s one thing, but these folks have crossed the line by selling them to unsuspecting hipsters who think they’re cool by trekking out to the desert to get drunk, naked and sunburned.

(Removing tongue from cheek now)

One reply to “Fandom gone awry?”

  1. Jason E Says:

    I fully agree on Burning Man. I’ve gone for 3 years (2000-2003) and my partner went for 4 (1999-2003) We didn’t go last year because I was not happy with the developing politics and cityscape. Interestingly, it is a natural evolution of a “city” to develop its own commerce, and as more people move into a city more rules and laws have to be enacted. It’s a shame, really, that the event has turned into a multi-million dollar event. Makes me wonder why I take a tent when we go.
