1st principle of Burning Man- Radical Inclusion- Anyone may be a part of Burning Man. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.

Radical- Thoroughgoing or extreme, especially as regards change from accepted or traditional forms

Inclusivity -an intention or policy of including people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized

Nothing about Flipside has wounded me more that the misapplication of this as dogma. As someone who wanted to always be a "good burner" and who's identity was wrapped up in being part of this community, this lead to a dangerous erosion of boundaries and basic protection of my safety and others. This was the unintentional consequences of good ideas that built something amazing but handicapped us from protecting ourselves.

Most people know about the extreme example of a sociopath who repeatedly had nonconsensual unprotected sex while HIV positive with women at Flipside, who had several warrants against him for violating restraining orders, and still took 5 years! 5 fucking years! to be excluded from the community due to the dogmatic application of Radical Inclusion. I don't want to get into details of that process or any of you who had to go through that. I know it sucked for everyone and we were dealing with extremely unprecedented circumstances which would divide any community. I honor all the people that fought for both our ideals and our community and themselves. If you don't know what I am talking about be grateful. I think the community has trauma to this day that is often thrown around on Facebook which is a shitty place to work that out.

So my experience with it is I was the first to say NO. He had crossed some boundaries with me at a party at my house when I lived at the Pink Palace. I tried to remove him. He pulled the "why are you doing this to me?" victim shit. I had to escalate to getting a ranger to throw him out of my house. This was the right thing for me to do both to protect my housemates and myself.

This boundary was not respected. People in the community that didn't live there thought that since I lived at the Palace (which was mostly non-burners at the time), I didn't have the right to ban him from the house since they viewed it as a community space and banning him from my home was exclusivity. I threw him out each time he showed up and it caused me so much grief and stress and disruption and drama. It was a betrayal of me by my community to place dogma over my safety and defense of my home. This was not Flipside, this was in my own home.  It set the tone for the rest of my experience with the Flipside community. This was 2002.

I still don't feel totally safe at Flipside because how I interpreted that experience. While the main trauma is gone, the layers of how I twisted that in my head are still coming to the surface.  I feel like I must interact with everyone regardless of my preference. I must make eye contact, I must allow hugs, I must be available for interaction. I can't be a "good burner" if I don't try to get along with everyone.  I make camps partially so I have somewhere I will feel safe because I do have to power to exclude someone there or someone will defend me. I built a god damned Empire! This is deeply embedded in my relationship with Flipside. HE didn't do anything to me, the community did the betrayal and I was ignored or challenged for 5 years. The Radical Inclusivity principle became a weapon of his defenders. I learned that I wasn't "allowed" to defend myself withing the paradigm of the Flipside community.

I often fight my way through that and do kick people out of my space and exclude people. Actually If you ever want to kick someone out I will totally do it for you. But I still have it in my head and it is still a conflict that I didn't realize was so deeply embedded. There are sometimes people I just don't want to fucking see or talk to. Or there are people that I haven't had an interesting interaction in 10 years so maybe I could do without more small talk at the port-a-potties. Or "I don't even know you, so don't fucking touch me."  Or maybe I don't want to talk to anyone right now cause I am miserable at Flipside. Those kinds of boundary settings are an existential threat to my identity as a "Burner". Other people can tell people to Fuck Off and it doesn't make them less of a Burner, but for some reason I got it in my head that I just can't do it. I am "not allowed".

So if I have someone in my life that I don't want to see, I get stuck in my head. Are they dangerous? are they a threat to others? Do you have a good enough reason? Did they mean it? Have you done enough? Can you explain it? Do they deserve it? have you tried hard enough? Why aren't you ready? Why can't you just get over it so you can be "good" and "inclusive"? and on and on like that. I wasn't sure why I couldn't stop until I figured out that I felt like I couldn't reconcile my Burner identity with my legitimate boundaries. So my relationship to that identity has to be severed for me to stop it and to own my boundaries.

In the "default world" I can tell you to Fuck Off for no reason at all if I need to. I don't need to prove to someone else that it is a "good enough" reason. The default to all invitations isn't "yes".  I don't have to include people. You are not entitled to access to me just because you attend an event. Inclusivity is a gift, not an expectation or a rule. Demanding inclusivity in a person's life outside of an event is wrong. I am "allowed" to say no.
Sooo Ok
I won't try to bridge 5 years of gap in my journal. I don't even know why I want to post here again, but it just felt like time to do a bigger dump than what I can do on the dreaded facebook.

Right now, I have no place to put all of my brain things and things I have learned and want to discuss. I have started trying to poke around to new people and go do different social activities. I need to always be intellectually challenged to be happy. Since I have been doing this some things surface, some things heal, some things unravel, and as you present yourself to new people your identity changes. Just in case you were wondering, there are still lots of cool people in Austin.

Flipside is coming and if you go back to my journal from 2010 I still feel the exact same way " Flipside has become involuntary and a burden I cannot bear. It's even more frustrating when I state this boundary and say I don't want to go anymore I don't get much support. I DON"T WANT TO GO ANY MORE! I don't need your permission. I don't need people to just say "oh you will be back" and  " just take a break". I took a break last year and I did not miss it. This year I barely cared about the burn. I was completely divested from the event as a whole. I need a different kind of vacation that doesn't take so much out of me. I need to be done and for that to be ok. It's not just a party I can show up to or not. It is a life I am moving on from and a person I don't want to be anymore.

I will find a different way to party with you guys and make art and dance and have rambling conversations. I want to take the things I love and do them in another way with a different focus. I will find a way. And it will be fantastic."

 I still feel misunderstood and unsupported. But Carlos has come to peace with me not wanting to go anymore. He is taking Sofia and it will be a different experience. I just want to do SOMETHING ELSE! I hear it a lot from other people as well, but I haven't come up with an option that is compelling enough to get critical mass. My restlessness and frustration may eventually lead to something better, but it is important that I come at it with creative enthusiasm instead of all the wounds from "breaking up" with Flipside. If anything I am tired of having to defend how I feel about it. I feel how I feel, whether I like it or not.

This last year I went for a purpose. While we celebrated the 10-year anniversary of ISH, I felt like I had to forgive myself for ending it and Burning it down, I saw how much people were still grieving, each for their own reasons. I felt how angry I still was when I looked at pictures of me with 2 babies and a full-time job putting so much into something that everyone wanted to continue, but no one wanted to do the work. The oppression of expectation and the grief and the guilt and the waiting for me to lead on to the next thing were still there. Much of this is in my own head, but when people ask me to come back and make something else, they have no idea what they are asking of me. But I tried one more time. There were other big factors, but I ended up having a shitty time and Carlos was finally convinced for real that I didn't want to go and he didn't want to go with me. It only took 4 years. Finally.

I discovered it's not about Burning Man culture as a whole since I went in 2014 and had a fabulous time and it was what I needed for myself, my relationship, and the community of people I went with. Carlos and I found a way to share a burn together and heal the last 4 years. Searching for what I would write on the temple I thought of every loss or change or gratitude I could think of and all I could say is "This is my church". Despite the size, It still a holy and magical place.

I read an article by Adrian in the BRC Weekly while I was there that helped me find words. I am a "post-jaded burner". I can still embrace Burning Man culture while letting go of what it is not and what other things I need to do to feel complete. When I was 19 I gave myself completely to the culture which was the answer to my rejection of my fucked up childhood. Like so many Burners, I felt home and a freedom that was deep and sacred. I dragged a lot of you with me :) But now almost 20 years later, I need to interact with the world as a whole and travel and find other fulfilling things. Burning Man can be part of that, but not displace it. I have gotten to see London and Rome and Berlin and Brazil and Honduras and Paris and I have a whole lot more to go. I am more than a Burner and so are all of you. Unlike in 2010, I no longer feel like I am sacrificing other things are trading experiences so I can go to Flipside.

Maybe I have enough room and have grieved enough to make something with y'all. Maybe everyone is busy and that life is over. Maybe all y'all have room for is to just go to Flipside and not do a whole lot. Maybe raising our kids together is the meaning we can make right now. Maybe I am the only one who is done. Maybe we can re-imagine ways to interact and find meaning. All I know is, I can't do it by myself.
[Full Disclosure- I went to Burning Man 2014 which was ruined by the wealthy elite]
There has been much Sturm und Drang about Burning Man having wealthy and famous people come in and "ruin" it in the past few years. As long as Burning Man changes lives and opens hearts and brings that creative blissful inspiration, it is NOT "ruined". If anything, doing this for influential and successful people will change the world for the better. There are some shitty behaviors that can come into the event with out-of-culture privileged people. There is fear that they won't "get it".  It is important that Burning Man changes them more that they change us. If Burning Man changes someone's life in a  powerful way and they have the power to make change in the world, isn't that a good thing?


How do you say no to the title of this article?
How Mark Zuckerburg pitched his own tent and co-founder Moskovitz  'hugged it out' in spiritual moment with Winklevosses"

Quote from Muskovitz in his blog post
Radical Inclusion vs Self-reliance

" I happened to run into Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss near the Temple crew camp on Esplanade. In spite of our tangled history, I had never actually met them; we only communicated through lawyers. These guys are among the only people on earth I might describe as real antagonists in my life or even enemies, but on playa my first instinct was that I quite obviously needed to introduce myself and start with hugs. They had just arrived so I wasn’t sure how they’d react, but they were very gracious at the time and I knew they’d understand more deeply by the time they left. Almost immediately when I got back, I had a Facebook friend request from Tyler and we started a thread mutually extolling the virtues of the festival. In no uncertain terms, he described a spiritual experience. I had created all kinds of dark fantasies about how meeting them would go (Tyler assures me it would have been cordial regardless), but on playa it was laughably clear. There, we were all part of the same community. We were always part of the same community."

Holy Fuck! That happened!

Imagine if the movie " the Social Network" ended at Burning Man. It is hilarious, but think about how resilient and powerful what we created together must be. People who can be doing anything else in the world that they want, choose to come to Burning Man for their own reasons and have the same experience of connection that we do.
Do you get to decide if Andrew Sullivan, one of the most influential bloggers in America "got it" or Grover Norquist or Puff Daddy or Dennis Kucinich? These people matter in the world and our "stupid little dirt rave" of Burning Man 3.0 changed their lives.

Burning Man is both a fragile and a resilient culture. It feels like one interaction can mess up your moment of connection.  But it takes a lot to ruin a whole burn experience, and it takes a WHOLE lot to "ruin" 70,000 people's burn. It's been going for an entire generation. Thousands and thousands of people have attended at least once. If you start at the first Burn in 1986, that is 29 years. You can argue that the Burning Man that we know started later when the first permit was pulled in 1991, but that is still almost a quarter of a century. It has been "ruined" according to someone every year since then. There are legitimate reasons for believing the festival is too big, has changed too much, and has shifted away from the culture you love. That depends entirely on which year you first came. It was "ruined" for someone that same year you fell in love with it. Burning Man was better 5 minutes ago.


Before 1997 attendees were more likely to be the anarchists and Cacophanists who were instrumental in the founding culture of Burning Man. During this time, people preferred to be anonymous and escape their life. Important and successful people were there, but they didn't want anyone to know who they were in real life. This was the playa I fell in love with. There was an exodus of people from that era when rules became more restrictive like banning guns and restricting driving. Burning Man "sold out to the man" in 1997, so if you have been since then it was "ruined" already. Events like 4th of Juplaya started to emerge for those people who didn't like the direction Burning Man was going. No leaders! No tickets! No gate! No rules!

During the tech boom starting in 1997, the wealthy were busy "ruining" Burning Man by creating huge art and art cars and camps. The playa was transformed by ambitious, creative, large, and elaborate camps and projects. Who do you think paid for all of that? The people who had money wanted to spend in on our crazy art festival. So much tech bubble money was coming in that when the bust came people wrote dire articles about the collapse and demise of the festival. I could probably find an article from some tech journal or SF paper every single year saying that "Burning Man is Dead" because it gets clicks, it sells papers. Cynicism pays the bills.


Founders of Google Sergey Brin and Larry Page posted the first Google Doodle before their trip to Burning Man 1998. The filed for the incorporation of the company when they returned from the Playa.


Burning Man has changed the world. Not just your world, but THE world. It built Silicon Valley as much as Silicon Valley built it.  The creativity, the connections, the shared hardships all of the things that built your friendships also built the companies that made the modern era. You benefit every day from some stupid conversation in a dust storm where some people hatched some plan which had cascading effects that led to what you are looking at to read this article. Lots of Burners make companies and hire other Burners which make money that they spend to make art at Burning Man.  Largely because of these successful people and those amazing artists that worked with them, Burning Man has become larger and more influential and, yes, successful. We have entered 3.0, as Adrian so aptly stated in the BRC weekly and it is still fucking awesome!

What CAN break Burning Man is the scarcity economy intruding upon the abundance and gift economy. Since 2011, more people want to go to Burning Man than can go. That is, and will continue to be the reality.This has happened for a few years and is a really big factor in the changes that have happened recently. Scarcity mentality leads to hoarding, scalping, and exclusiveness. No matter what the hippies think, market economics is still a factor even in Utopias. It changes the demographics of who can go and also who wants to go. The rich can always afford scalped tickets and the rest have to scramble through the ticket process and get lucky. People start to think about who "deserves" to go more and resentment builds when access seems unfair. The Radical Inclusiveness principle says that everyone "deserves" to go. It is is human to fight that and say "my tribe" deserves to go. "They" took something from me. The heartbreaking thing that happened to Burning Man is that you are no longer entitled to be included at Burning Man.

The thing is, rich people didn't make Burning Man expensive in the first place. It's expensive because this shit cost lot and lots of money to produce. Infrastructure is expensive, permits are expensive, employees are expensive, events are expensive and art is really really goddamned expensive. And that is without paying the tons of volunteers, (which is it's own discussion). You can disagree about how the org spends money and their priorities, etc but anyone who has produced an event will tell you that events cost way more money than you think and certainly more than the ticket price. Everything else you ever go to is sponsored by advertising. When you take away sponsors and you pay the real cost of the event, and it is a lot of money.

Flipside is not radically inclusive. Tickets sold out at Flipside much earlier in 2004, but we didn't choose to raise prices or find bigger places immediately, we chose to make it harder to get tickets and stay small. You had to know someone, you had to know exactly when to buy your ticket, you had to have social capital to get in on volunteering. Everyone always got a ticket "if they wanted to" but I am sure that many cool interesting contributing people didn't come because of the way we chose to deal with scarcity. We didn't raise ticket prices, but we raised the social capital costs and kept the event growing at the rate the land could handle.  I remember the first time we sold out and people started arguing about who "deserved " to go. Blocks of tickets were reserved for out of towners, but only if they deserved it. People deserve to go if the are in town and volunteer and know someone or are part of a theme camp. The actual Radical Inclusivity principle was compromised. The cool kids did not invite people to the party because they didn't fit in. Inclusivity only works if there is abundance. Lots of LLC and leadership did the best they could, but the culture of Flipside was created by the constraints of its environment.

Now Flipside has the capacity to grow after getting new permits, but the culture is set based on early scarcity. New people, new art, new ideas, are hard when it is hard to find out about our family reunion. Many of people at Flipside have never been to Burning Man. Many Burners in Austin have never been to Flipside because they never felt included. Flipside hasn't changed the world, or even changed Austin, because we closed ourselves off; partially because we had to for the land, but partially because we reflected the no-growth, rejection of success, slacker (counter) culture of Austin.

texas california.pngFlipside is the Austin we used to have vs the Burning Man that Austin looks more like today.  The tension that people expressed after the last Burning Man seemed to be coming from the same place of mourning the lost Austin. "They" don't "deserve" to be here. "They" are ruining our thing! Our city becoming successful and influential "ruins" it. "Californian's" are making everything expensive. You are cool enough and "Austin" enough to decide who "deserves" to move here. (Even though you only moved here a few years ago).  Austin and Burning Man have shared a lot of the same trajectories and were shaped by the same forces and even the same kinds of people.  The threat to the meaning and character of both cities is real. But the future is coming and we have to believe in the resilience of our culture and the strength we have through welcoming new people excited about being here. How do we change "them" into "us"? How to we make the new citizens of our city "get it"? How do we actually learn from Burning Man how to grow and stay awesome?



Austin is changing the world right now. Lots of really cool and creative things are happening here and the Flipside community doesn't seem to have any interest in engaging in the future or in the rest of our city. It is stuck in old Austin mentality. How would you welcome a newbie to Flipside? By telling them it was cooler before they got there and that they are ruining it?  How would you welcome a new neighbor to Austin? Welcome, stranger! Have you had a breakfast taco yet?

I have no words yet. Big processing post coming soon. I am grateful for this pic Ira.

So this is the geekiest post I will do but I got to meet the creator of Livejournal at sxsw! His name is Brad Fitzpatrick He was on a panel called "How do you sell the milk when the cow is free?" about open source projects. I happened to go there because another panel was full but these things are always serendipitous. We use all open source tools on my team and we have to defend that choice to the rest of the company so it was also a useful session.

He still journals here http://brad.livejournal.com/

I got to tell him that he made my life better and I am grateful that i had a chance to say what his work meant to me in person.
This place has changed my life and community and I have missed it as a safe and almost sacred place to express myself. His little start up project has millions of users and has changed many peoples lives. This place has its limits as all the myfacetwitribebuzz sites do. But I am very glad that we have them so I can know all of you better and love all of you more.

All these social networking sites have fundamentally changed the way we interact as humans. But someone made these technologies. Someone had an idea that changed the world. I guess that is what many of us are trying to do. So thank the people that you come across that have made your life better. They need to know that. Why the fuck else are we here?
Had to post my favorite Roller skating bootyshaking song.
Now maybe I can get it out of my head.

Abortion

Jun. 2nd, 2009 02:21 pm
The Dr. Tiller shooting has brought the conversation about abortion up in the news and I feel I have to write something about it.

Weather we make it leagal and safe or not, Abortion exists because:
not every pregnancy is viable
not every fetus is healthy
not every sexual experience is consensual
not everyone believes the same way
not every mother is healthy
not every father is willing
not every family is supportive
not everyone has the resources to raise a child
not every pregnancy is detected early enough
not every method of birth control works all the time
not every human being is perfect

Abortion happens when Life is messy, imperfect, confusing, terrifying, and heartbreaking as Life tends to be.  )
I don't really expect to be able to debate about this but if you don't know why people do something you can't really have a conversation about it. So here I am. i have had multiple abortions. I am stand by my choices. i believe that society is better off for my choices. They were not choices that I wanted to make but they were the least of the bad options that Life gave me.  I am a mother of two. I am not a baby killer. I am a sinner like all of us, but my sins are mine because of my God given free will. Life began many millions of years ago and will continue through us and beyond us. We only control a tiny part of it, but that part is ours to control or not as we are able. That is was makes us human.
life in general has been good!

i am not going to flipside
and instead I am going to see this cutie pie in NYC!

I am still stretched thin with the schedule stuff and the pregnancy
and i am not getting enough sleep
and my husband is just to irresistable lately to go to bed before he comes home at night

my mother in law anna is here but her time has been almost entirely consumed with caring for her other son matteo
so it been a tough time at home

but I am grateful for my life and my friends and for my mental health and my sexxxy husband and healthy daughter
so life is good in general and somedays are harder than others but I am getting through.

Vote today!

Congratulations to Nobody and Emerald and Frank and Jessie! Welcome to  Evan and Miela!

As I predicted with my smack talk - the Armando Montoya "Juatemysammichpreparetodie" Quesadilla won first place in the Lambada category of the Austin Grilled Cheese Invitational

The Lambada category is new this year and I decided on thursday that I would rather make quesadilllas so the idea had to come together quickly
I Princess QuesoCup and My husband Armando Montoya and our trusted partners in crime Princess ButterPan and the Bread Prirate Roberts (Jack and Sarah) were all dressed up and there were swordfights and fake accents and much ridiculousness as well as a very satisfying quesadilla.

The Armando was made with flour tortillas, butter, chicken fajita slices, caramelized onions and garlic, and a mix of Cheddar, Monterrey Jack, Asadero, Queso Quesadilla, Habanero Cheddar, Jalapeno Cheddar cheeses. The sauce was made of avocado puree, sour cream, and roasted salsa. The finishing touch was a shot of tequila with a lime with a sword in it.

It was awesome for my vision to be realized so completely! I am very gratefull for my team! I could never have pulled it off without you. 

I am also grateful to all that enjoyed the Armando and for the many people that came out to revel in the cheesy goodness. Thank you XT! Thank you Tim! Thank you M7! Thanks to the King and Queen on Cheese! Thanks to all the volunteers!

and thank you Before Dawn! I got Robbed in Miami made my whole night!

Carlos' and My "Armando Montoya Jukilledmyfaderpreparetodie" Quesadilla will dance away with the trophy for the Lambada Category!
I will prepare whatever nationality of grilled cheese that you require my love and of course I know you must require the Armando!





Are you people ready to smell the thrill of victory?

Are you ready to gaze upon the genius of the Missionary grilled cheese sammich, in all it's fattening glory?

Are you ready to taste the sacred, savory bites of the Kama Sutra genius that separate the ordinary from the Fucking Grilled Cheese Champions™?

Are you ready to wade in the watery sea of the Honey Pot, the dessert grilled cheeses, the sammiches of the FUTURE?

Do you feel prepared to dive into the language of love, the Lambada Texas regional quesadilla category?

Well then, your wait is almost over!

THE CHEESE WILL FLOW!


Saturday night, we will raise our spatulas high in the sky, scream to the heavens and release all of God's anger and glory onto us in the form of Grilled Cheese Sammiches.

We will ride the sacred Unicorn of butter over the rainbow and right into a pot of melted cheese!

We will pick up the swords on the battlefield and fight to the death until only the few, the proud, the Fucking Grilled Cheese Champions™ remain.

We will... you get the idea.

It will be the greatest glory mankind has ever known, and we will all bear witness.

So sleep tight tonight, my childrens, because Saturday we will know God and she will taste delicious!


So, may the best cheese win!
