Our fundraising campaign is going live starting now, beginning with this new kickstarter:
Please pass the word. it's only 45 days long. We're hoping that it'll reach even those who aren't able to go this year, but who may have been touched by the temple in previous years and want to help make it happen again.
What's the budget from the BORG?
Oh yay. Because what's a burn without crankypants david best rehashing his shtick? Again.
I think it's fair to say that David Best and his temples have brought more pleasure to the people on the Playa that your bitching about them ever has or ever will, and that you are in a weak position to be talking about the crankiness of the man's pants, or any of his other garments.
Well, I know the redoubtable Mr. Best, at least as well as you can know anyone who drunkenly vomits all over your truck.
True, that was close to ten years ago, but until he cleans up the now crusty mess, I feel completely comfortable in referring to him as a sodden Old Puke Monkey. Also as a sawed off Leprechaun with severe body odor, and that the pot at the end of his rainbow is full of brown, stinky "gold".
With that in mind, so what if he did create one of the truly standout works of Art ever seen on the playa? The fact that his work is so good, that it is probably divinely inspired creates a lot of problems.
For instance, thanks to that Puny sack of Fuck, we are stuck with a Temple, every year, until the end of time.
Unfortunately, not many designers are anywhere near as good, as he is.
Yes, there was the fire vortex, that was cool, but most Temples just don't stack up. Especially in the past few years.
The Wall of Graffiti was simply lame.
Last year's Leaning Tower of Tumescence proved that we can move Santa Barbabra to the Playa, but missed the whole concept of what a temple could be.
David's designs and finished temples have always been the seamless work of a gifted Master that transcend the mundane in a way that most of us can only wonder at.
That doesn't stop him from being a repulsive old pederast who would probably copulate with Nuns, provided that he had enough boner pills to wake the dead.
What happened the team building this years temple didn't get tickets in the raffle? so they invite the master back to give the illusion everything will be ok? smooth..

Zaius, I want to have your monkey baby.
there's a temple?
I agree about the Best temples. The temple of the stars was the best.
