JRS VOLUME #6; ISSUE #11

(REMOVE INSTRUCTIONS at the bottom of this email)

Jack Rabbit Speaks.

Actiongrl again, here (the not-feline half of the JRS duo.) Wow! The energy is building with 171 days left until the event, and another busy season sets in. If the Burning Man year has tides, then, well, we've struggled into our wetsuits and are running toward the water with our boards, because this is where the fun really starts in earnest. (This issue of the JRS is being composed in my bedroom in the Sunset District, and through the open patio door the blustery spring wind carries the sound of the waves to my ears as I write. Thus, a surfing metaphor wends its way out of my brain and through these fingertips and into your mailbox...duuude.)

Of course, you have read the AfterBurn Report, didn't you, my burning friend? Yes, of course you did. I wouldn't need to prod you again. Another gentle nudge toward http://afterburn.burningman.com is hardly necessary, I know. Ditto the Survey at http://afterburn.burningman.com/survey.php. I mean, you've already taken the opportunity to contribute your opinions and let your Black Rock voice be heard, right? I needn't pester you. Really. ;)

The Survey 2001 will only be active for another 10-14 days, so fill it out now.

Ha! I love technology. As I am compiling this missive with the windows open, just this minute I get an IM from Metric in Gerlach, and it goes like this:

dpwhualapai: holy cow
dpwhualapai: we just got snowed on
AGfromBRC: wow! get pictures!
dpwhualapai: running around the ranch doing damage control

Hmm..I just might have to head up to Nevada next weekend to see about what the playa looks like on St. Patrick's Day.

OK, then. Let's roll. How about some red hot TICKET INFO? (including kudos for the designer) Some words about upcoming BURNING EVENTS and in San Francisco, Portland, Austin, Vancouver...everywhere...Burning Man somethings, somewhere near you. Calls for help from the CAFE and WEB TEAMS, too. FILM SCREENINGS. ART PROJECTS. POWER TOOLS. BURN BARRELS. MUTAYTING.

PLAYA!!!

...are we there yet?

TICKETS TICKETS TICKETS TICKETS!

We thought to mention (since it's not shown on the ticket) that the BEAUTIFUL new 2002 tickets were designed by L.A. graphic artist Mark Matthews, aka SpaceCat ( spacecatprods(at)aol(dot)com) Mark represents the playa as a body of water and depicts an Asian flute player sailing on it in a boat, with the man floating in the distance. Very poetic, very Floating World. Thank you, Mark! We once again have a ticket worth saving as a memento.

Now PLEASE read this update from the ticket sea...

We have been working fast and hard to get the 6000+ tickets processed and in the mail to you. We have also been swamped in emails and phone calls wondering about ticket status and such. Please read on, this might help answer some questions that might otherwise distract us from processing and mailing those tickets to you!

1. "I sent in my money on the very first day and still have not heard anything or received my tickets. Is everything okay?"

Everything is just fine. We are working as fast as we can to get these tickets in the mail to you. Sometimes no news is good news. **Please do not email jackrabbitspeaks@ or partiserv@ with this question.** Answering email takes time away from entering ticket sales and only slows down the process. If there was a problem, you would have heard from us. (See #3)

2. "I sent in my order on the same day as my friend. They already received their tickets, but I have not received mine..."

Not only did you and your friend send in for tickets on the same day, but so did several thousand other people. Please be patient and do not fret. There are 4 people working as fast as we can to process and mail your tickets to you.

Maybe your friend ordered their ticket online. Online sales are handled by our new ticket vendor, and they have an automated process that moves very quickly. Mail order sales are processed the old fashioned way by real humans. We're sorry that we don't move as fast as computers do.

3. "How will I know if I received tickets at the price level I requested?"

This is the most commonly asked question. If you have not been contacted by us regarding your order, then it is safe to assume that you will receive the tickets at the level you requested.

4. "I just wanted to check and make sure that Burning Man received my order for tickets."

If you are concerned that we did not receive your order, you can try calling the 1-800 # on the back of the receipt for your money order. This will tell you if it has been cashed or not. If it has been cashed, it is a good indication that we received everything.

5. "I had requested that my tickets be sent via Airborne Express and I still have not received them. Where are they?"

The Airborne Express service was chosen for security reasons, not for speed. Your ticket still needs to go through the manual process of being entered into our system. You should receive an email from Airborne when we prepare the shipping label for your order. This email will tell you that your tickets are on the way and it will give you a tracking number for the package.

Some other juicy ticket info:

Tickets can be purchased at the following 2 walk-in outlets in Nevada:

The Melting Pot: 888 S Virginia Reno NV

Records: 1051 W 4th St Winnemucca NV

Both outlets have a limited number of $165 tickets for sale!

The rate for tickets is currently $175, and they are going fast so get one today!

TOWN HALL MEETING and FLAMBÉ LOUNGE WEEKEND: APRIL 6 - 7

A FULL WEEKEND of epic BURNING MAN EVENTS to kick planning season into high gear!

In past years, Burning Man has held two town meetings - the "open forum" town meeting for topical discussion in December, and the Volunteer Recruitment one in the spring. As you may know, we took a different approach in the post-2001 glow and set about building the AfterBurn Report and Survey, a more permanent, more widely-scoped means of wrapping up the event with the community. This brought the post-event feedback concept to an audience beyond San Francisco, provided a far superior opportunity for detail, and finally entered the whole of the effort of building Black Rock City into the collective consciousness.

While the ABR was a tremendous success, we found ourselves missing the stimulation of face-to-face conference with the community that we hadn't had in December. So, when we started planning for the Spring meeting, it only made sense: let's have our cake and eat it too!

This Spring Town Meeting will combine the formats of both the open forum and volunteer recruitment. Tables will be set up, staffed by teams which are eager to involve new participants, and operated throughout the day. Slipped into the program (at around 1 pm) will be a 1.5 hour discussion period with the senior staff, focusing on the Afterburn report, and broadening out to open questions from the audience. We will offer a printed program, with key staffers' faces pictured and responsibilities listed, to facilitate participants in finding the people with the answers to their questions, post-discussion.

This event is always a delightful time to reconnect after the winter and get plugged in. Aside from all the organizin', recruitin', and communicatin', the Town Meeting is a POT-LUCK BARBECUE, and a great chance to mingle! So whip out that hot wings recipe (guess my favorite food) and bring yourself over to get connected to your community... and to a volunteer team that needs your unique brand of you-ness to make BRC a reality.

WHERE: SOMARTS, Brannan, near 9th, in SF
WHEN: Saturday, April 5, 2002 12 - 5 PM

But that's not the end of the fun that weekend. Oh, no. There's more...

"I have to tell you that I came back from the desert depressed and broke. This rock spinner project crushed me under its weight, tested friendships to the breaking point and pushed me way too hard. I spent too much money and had been moping for the last couple of weeks. I watched BurnBabyBurn and my faith and joy was restored. It actually was worth it and people actually "got it". - Zach Coffin - Rock Spinner.

*** EDITOR'S NOTE: The Burning Man organization doesn't have the resources to produce a film after each event. We've relied on participants and their own drive and incentive to create videos. Some pieces are better than others. Paynie's piece seems to hit a chord with many participants. Though we don't plan to sell this video through our own newsletter or web site, we will continue to recommend participants enjoy this piece.

We've set the date for the annual spring Reno Recompression party at Skoosh Ink. Mark your calendar for Saturday, March 23rd. This is your party, bring what you want. It's also a pot-luck as it's been for years. The Tribal Band of Moons said they'll play again this year. This will be the third year in a row. You should think of some kinda gift for the band as a token of appreciation. I already know what I'm going to give.

NEW YORK BURNERS SPREAD THE FLAME AT GROUND ZERO

Below is an excerpted press release from February 8th, 2002.

"A gift of warmth and light was delivered to ground zero checkpoints beginning today. The city of New York will receive more of the gifts, fire barrels, through the rest of winter.

The NYPD, State Troopers and other assorted security and rescue personnel have been keeping warm at checkpoints by standing near rusty drums, which hold a scrap wood fire inside. Society for Experimental Arts and Learning (SEAL), a not-for-profit organization that supports and enables community-based interactive art, thought they could do better. SEAL gathered volunteers who made new barrels for the workers whose jobs have them stand outside in the winter months.

The barrels are raised up on feet to keep the fires safely off the ground, and have been specially designed and cut by volunteers. The first barrel was donated to The West Side Highway checkpoint is located along the Hudson River at Canal Street.

Cory Mervis, the Executive Director of SEAL said, "The barrels currently in use by the police, although functional, can be considered an eye sore. We wanted to help people focus their energy into a creative project and a gift, which would provide use for the community, while allowing the participants to connect with each other in the process. We are planning an art show of fire barrels near Ground zero in the near future," said Mervis, "the theme of the project is 'Phoenix Rising', and it will be shown along the river, near the site, at night time. The date of the show will be announced at a later stage. There are 10 or more barrels planned by teams of volunteers. The barrels would be filled with wood and will warm and illuminate the vicinity."

"Safety is a primary concern," said Mervis, "firemen are invited along with the community to join together and enjoy the warmth and light of safely contained fire in NYC. We are reaching out to give a creative outlet for people and help the healing process, while sharing art with the city." Mervis is currently in negotiations with city officials to make this show possible."

You can see the barrels and video of their creation at http://www.sealspace.org/events/barrel/barrel.html

Hats off to the NY Burn community and SEAL!

They're co-sponsors with the Black Rock Arts Foundation of the NYC Cooper Union lecture by Larry Harvey in late April. Visit their web site for more information.

LOS ANGELES BURNERS IN CARNEVALE AT VENICE BEACH

Matty the Muytator and a group of burners from Gigsville and Azteca camps will have a presence at this event, a Carnevale costume party on the Venice Beach Boardwalk, March 23rd from 7 P.M. until Midnight, South from Ozone Ave to Rose Avenue.

Producer and designer Esquire Jauchem of Venice has organized the event in conjunction with the North Venice Beach Association. It will include a performances of local singer/songwriter Peter Demian "Street Smart", Venice recording artist Eric Reed, dancing to the sounds of DJ Jason Saville, Hillel "Mr. Baloonman", and a special appearance by The Mutaytor, a performance group of drummers, firespinners, and dancers with more than 30 members on a stage adjacent to the Boardwalk.

Jauchem explained that, "We have been inspired by the annual Carnevale celebration in Venice, Italy where people get out onto the streets in amazing costumes. We hope we can create our own tradition here in Venice. We chose to align our party with the Vernal Equinox and celebrate the first Saturday of Spring to avoid having a religious affiliation."

Esquire Jauchem who has executed designs for theater, opera companies, the Crystal Cathedral, Burning Man, and even the Dalai Lama (on the night he won the Nobel Peace Prize), is creating lighting and special effects for the event utilizing Carnevale images on video and film shot in Venice, Italy by local artist Jon Beau Lee.

There will be prizes for costumes at the Carnevale! Venice Beach 2002 with awards forvarious classifications. There is no charge to attend the party but donations will be accepted at the event to help cover expenses.
