This is the great El Pulpo Mechanico. Last year, it got re-purposed into a new art car that was totally different, but reused many of the parts of this incredible fire-spitting octopus.

Here's another favorite piece of art out there. The photo does not capture it, but you can go stand underneath her and watch her chest move in and out as she breathes. It's also quite amazing how she stands there on her own, with no guide wires or anything holding her up through all the sandstorms.

Continuing in my Burning Man countdown series of pics and strange stories... a few years ago my friend Cliff dressed up is extremely skinny 9-year-old son as an alien grey. He walked in a really spooky way and got into it. Then, just for fun, we took him around to really freak out everyone that was on acid. You should have seen the absolute confusion and hilarity that ensued!

I wonder what kind of art will be out there this year? I try NOT to look at it ahead of time so I am surprised. There is a Audio Guide of sorts you can download ahead of time that talks all about the art, the meaning, the artists, and secret things about the pieces you might not otherwise notice. I volunteered to be a "voice" of the audio guide, but I was rejected. This sent me into a temporary shame spiral. Anyway, this is "Embrace" by Matthew Schultz and the Pier Group. I'm sure they're cooking up something cool this year, and I look forward to being surprised!

Hey this year at Burning Man I got permission to fly a drone! Yay! I think it's just random... I think hundreds apply and they only pick a few dozen. I think I'm just gonna take the Mavic out there. That thing has been solid for over 100 flights, so I'm really gonna give it a run at the Burn! ๐Ÿ™‚

The countdown to Burning Man continues! It looks like a lot of people have signed up for the photo walk, so it's gonna be a great crowd. I already dropped a little assignment in the discussion area there that I think everyone will enjoy.
