Video: Spontaneous Whip Camp
Just a thought from 2 September 2003 about Burning Man.
There is no way to talk about Burning Man without just jumping into the middle. So here goes.
One of my favorite moments from this year was when Vogon 42 (our camp) suddenly became Spontaneous Whip Camp. See, Jason brings whips to Burning Man. Nothing kinky (unless you count a childhood Indiana Jones fetish as kinky), just a guy doing professional-level whip tricks. And he brings extras.
It was like an experiment in group psychology. Jason started showing someone else how to whip without killing themselves. Then someone else came in. Then someone else. All of a sudden, we had a class on our hands.
Here's to Vogon Jason, our whip guru.
This section is called Just a Thought. It's a blog where I post little pieces of what I'm thinking about at the moment. This page is an individual entry called “Video: Spontaneous Whip Camp” that I wrote on 2 September 2003.
