I will never understand the appeal of Burning Man. Sure, a couple of cool art projects come out of there every year, but for the most part, I just have in my mind a picture of a massive dirty hippie party that lasts for a week.

Well, the festivities might last for a week, but you’ll see in this video that the preparation and first arrivals actually happen almost a month before the big man burns. For what it’s worth, this is a cool video. But that doesn’t change my perception of Burning Man. [via]
