BURNING THE BURNING LIFE MAN

Burning_video

So Burning Life just came to an official close in an inferno of flame and colored light, as BL's version of the Man was set ablaze.  I captured some video of the event, which was so overflowing with Residents that the fire and their dancing often slowed to a time-altering, hallucinatory crawl.  As befits the clothing-optional occasion, the video is possibly not worksafe-- unless, of course, you work at Burning Man.

Torley, who hosted the event, also supplied the montage music, with a track called "Accelerative Thrust".

Update, 9/16:  In Comments, Aster points out his own very lovely video of the Burning.  Warning: contains nudity.  Additional warning:  contains male thongs.
