I twitted the above question with zero expectations. The answers received yielded some… interesting results. Here they are, in the order received.
JessJubilee: patchouli and dreads and breaks
russmarshalek: MOTHER FUCKING BIRKENSTOCKS. also unshaved armpits, toms of maine and animal collective.
russmarshalek: plus that dude in HS who smoked weed in his dad’s car while listening to korn’s “got the life”
jwordfish: that episode of xavier:renegade angel. “burning person.” (a laugh-a-thon.)
ilirjana: White people in crocs with fire sticks. FEAR PERSONIFIED.
AsteroidBelt: Super Herpes.
djayres: Bassnectar, weird experimental Danish architecture, bushy pubes, mad max bicycles, giant diy robots, shrooms, spirit animals.
youngelz: germans in pleather w dreads named udi
pmon: ugh. After burn in SF…such a sad look. Don’t want to get all angry in 2010 so will stop there.
JessJubilee: STDs
skinny412: dusty equipment, hippies, dubstep, b-o, the photog who toured w me and izza kizza
ianmeyer: burning man == sex tents. *shudders and vomits*
ARIESNOISE: free dick. dirty food. das racist. that’s racist
pmon: there is the most awful pretentious piece in SF Chronicle about the burn and how it will break open your skull to a new world.
Mr______X: I’m there ! RT @djayres: @jawnita experimental Danish architecture, bushy pubes, mad max bicycles, giant robots, shrooms, spirit animals
masfina: utilikilts and piercings, a van powered by cooking grease and burlesque fire breathers
filmcynic: Patchouli. Hot Patchouli.
djstilllife: re: burning man, honestly, @djsmallchange, Rubulad, and a more eclectic music selection than yr average loft party
RichterFit: Spending Mom’s money. Driving Dad’s van.
AS FOR ME, BASED PURELY ON GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH AND MASSIVE GENERALIZATION, I THINK OF WHITE PEOPLE WITH DREADS, SAN FRANCISCO, CULTURALLY INTERLOPING TATTOOS, AND TRIBAL. :( ALSO PEOPLE WHO DECORATE THEIR APARTMENTS WITH OLD MANNEQUINS AND BABY DOLL HEADS.

    i went in 2005. it was the same week the levees broke. I was in an artificial city of 30,000 people with its own functional private airport. i wanted to to my family in new orleans but i was scared. a couple of people who brought their own bathrooms, water and beds weren’t scared, and went down. i don’t know what that means, but that’s pretty much all i think of.

    Topless dot com boomers with Afro wigs and painted nipples, peeking into the medical tent at the drug casualties, meeting Chantelle H. for the first time, amazingly.
