your full-service ass station on the Playa, will be back for the last time. The plans are to burn this sucker this year.
Stop by for a good ass-smacking on our pneumatic Spank-o-matic, or enjoy a very memorable and intensely pleasurable ride on the Orgasmatron (ladies only). And where else but gASSo can you get a flaming propane enema from Ethyl, our converted gas pump. (It must be experienced to be truly appreciated.)
The Chairway to Heaven
Representing the state-of-the-art in hand-operated elevator technology, we'll bring our 40' tower, which provides a spectacular view of Black Rock City.
Uncle Joey's 40' Rotating Teeter Totter for adults will be back.
The Centrifuge will be new this year. It is yet another fantastic toy, and this one is self-operatable (meaning 24-hour operation).
We're easy to find. Just look for the anatomically-correct and fully-animated dancing Burners, created by Don Syrek and Frank Walker (an engineering genius).
Or follow the flying saucer -- the first art car Burning Man ever saw is coming back.
Our ever-popular bar is coming back, thanks to the Blunderland group.
The Little Black Dress Parade (LBD)
This is an annual event. A parade where we (and anyone who wants to join in) don little black dresses and follow the Burning Band along the esplanade, down side streets, and into center camp. We sing, we parade, we cause a ruckus. The LBD will be held on Thursday at Bman at 4pm.
The Weird Underwear Brigade
This is also an annual event. A parade where we (and anyone who wants to join in) don the most insane, risqué, colorful undies or lingerie and follow the Burning Band along the esplanade, down side streets, and into center camp. We sing, we parade, we cause a ruckus. The WUB will be held on Tuesday at Bman at 4pm.
The Bondage Wall
In 2003, Painjoy named his creation "The Wailing Wall" in honor of the religious theme... 2004 saw "Dr. Painjoy and The Conquerors of Uranus!" The wall was back in 2005, and this year ... Well, we're not sure yet what we're going to do.
Got a kinky side and want to show it off? Cone to The Playground and bring your toys.
Want to take responsibility for this kind of depravity? Great, you sound like our kind of person. Just drop us a note
Next to gASSo, self-serve and open to all.
The Magic Carpet
A great art car by Steve Just -- it's coming back (we think). And there will be some other cool art cars.
A one-man theme camp... Dr. Painjoy was the mayor of the GLOM in 2004 (parent of the Playground), and he's back this year with bunches of "hello - my name is" stickers to hand out, along with special authority to change everyone's name.
Painjoy wants to greet her -------->
Think you've got a great Playa name now? Just wait until you see the funny new name he gives you. Guaranteed to be perverted, but that's part of why you came to the Playa, right?
Want to know where he will be so you can find him? So would we. You can try contacting the good Doctor at: firstname.lastname@example.org, and if you get an answer, let us know. (Hint: Promising beer, or sending him a photo of yourself topless seems to help.)
(our generator & power grid) - We got the power ! (With special thanks to Don for lining up the generator.)
Our beloved SINdy - serving up fresh veggies on the Esplanade...merci mademoiselle!
