Tuesday Watercooler


Hi, y’all.

I’m back after a 5-day weekend in the Texas hill country at Burning Flipside, the regional version of Burning Man. We’re really particular about how images from the event get used, to protect the privacy of the experience and its participants. Instead, I’ll share some of the music from the event — a DJ set performed by cantgetnosleep at the Wonderlounge at Burning Flipside on Sunday night. The title of the set “The beast is dead …” is an homage to the monstrous “Beast” effigy we had just burned, representing our inner dark sides.

I will say I had a wonderful time out there, with good food, music, art and company to spend a long weekend. How was yours?
