In the Burning Man community, now is the time of year when all the self-righteous dick heads try to ruin everyone’s fun by showing you how cool they are by writing their, “Why I am not going to Burning Man this year” manifestos. They always say the same thing, “Well, I’ve been every year for the past 15 years aaaaaand this year, blah, blah, blah.” Wait a second… Is Burning Man over or are you? Did you just write this article to show me how much of an original burner your are? Is this Playa materialism? Is this commodification of your experience? I’m sorry if your unrealized expectations of what could have been, are crushing the reality of your present moment. It’s time to get over that now. —Why I AM going to Burning Man this year. (It has nothing to do with Burning Man) — RETURN
