Burning Man Day 6: The Man Burns

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Burning Man Day 6: The Man Burns

So today is the day. The Man burns. After a week of burning bacchanalia the moment of madness arrives. Tomorrow people will start leaving, but tonight they party. Hard. On this night last year, I saw naked people running through the desert with wild eyes and wilder cries. Lost and found was much the same […]

Burning Man Day 5: Raining Dust

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Burning Man Day 5: Raining Dust

I've heard that this year it rained at Burning Man. Really rained. Hard. Seems weird to have a rainstorm in the desert. But then again, we had Hurricane Earl bypass NYC today. The clouds were amazing, but it didn't actually rain. So given the current conditions, it seemed appropriate to have these people with umbrella's […]

Burning Man Day 4: Indemnifying Death

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Burning Man Day 4: Indemnifying Death

Now these guys give serious rides. First of all, they have the coolest warning signs. This thing is called the Teeter Totter Of Death and they have a really BIG roadwork triangle style sign which says 'Abrupt Decapitation'. It's enough to make the freaks froth at the mouth. As they line up to take a […]

Burning Man Day 3: Rocket In Your Brain

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Burning Man Day 3: Rocket In Your Brain

By now, at least half of the 50,000 people at Burning Man would have added their own individual choice of rocket fuel to help their brains break the barriers of the civilized society they left behind at the entrance. Even though there are many new choices available in the market place, psychedelics are a perennial […]

Burning Man Day 2: A Cashless Society

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Burning Man Day 2: A Cashless Society

There are currently 50,000 people camped in the Nevada desert about 2 hours north of Reno. Every one of them has their own reason for being there. Some have gone to get trashed and party hard, some have gone for the Art, some have gone to gawk and some are there because they have a […]

Burning Man Started Today

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Burning Man Started Today

This time last year I was on the Playa, close to Gerlach in Nevada. I had arrived in Gerlach on Thursday as the people I was travelling with told me we would be allowed on early. They were mistaken. As it turned out, we spent the weekend in Gerlach where I wandered around taking pictures. […]

Bachelorette Party or Hen’s Night?

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Bachelorette Party or Hen’s Night?

Yesterday I was supposed to go on an art adventure but instead I stayed home and then in the late afternoon I went and caught up with some friends who were out for a Bachelorette Party and as a surprise for the principal Bachelorette, took some pictures of them before they went really crazy for […]

Chantal Ughi: From Model to Thai Kick Boxing World Champion

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Chantal Ughi: From Model to Thai Kick Boxing World Champion

Respect. Chantal Ughi is the Thai Kick Boxing Female World Champion. I first met Chantal a couple of years ago when I was spending far too much time at Nublu on Avenue C in the East Village. Nublu was an amazing bar, full of characters and by far and away had more of the best […]

Ken Hirai: The Japanese produce Pop Singers as well…

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Ken Hirai: The Japanese produce Pop Singers as well…

Ok. I know I didn't post a blog yesterday. I did write one on my friend Chantal Ughi, who went from being a model to World Champion Kick Boxer, but it got wiped when Firefox decided to crash and take my words into the ether along with it. And I didn't have time to re-write […]

Automatic Loveletter: Conquering From Clearwater

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Automatic Loveletter: Conquering From Clearwater

Last night I saw Juliet Simms and her brother Tommy of Automatic Loveletter play 6 songs at Angels & Kings, a small bar in the East Village. Even though Juliet was nursing a sore throat so couldn't speak before the show, from the moment they hit the stage I was transfixed. She's an incredible performer […]
