More burning man event stuff

In other news the event the girls I am headed down to the burn with (including the lovely and talented Jessica, Kelly, and Linnea) are throwing an event that made it into the Jack Rabbit Speaks on July 27th. Collectively they are stoked that the idea might just catch on in a groovy way that encourages more folks to participate in playa cleanup. It is really nice to see their team collectively participating in the event in a completely new way that has them excited.

I seem to recall on the way off the playa last year on Tuesday discussing that it actually looked as though the line had been crossed from MOOP to litter and it made us really sad. I hope that the green theme this year encourages folks to do things a little bit better.



Hey, did you know that each of us is asked to spend at least 2 hours helping to clean the public areas of Burning Man in addition to cleaning up our own camp? Well, we are. The JRS claps wildly, hops up and down, and cheers for this idea for putting in your two hours and being part of an art event at the same time:

"Join MAECAMOOP (mythical and endangered creatures against moop) in a performance playa cleanup. We are meeting at the Man ashes on Sunday to form a mythical line of bodies to walk the playa together, gathering MOOP and "cleaning art" as we go. Wear your favorite animal/mythical creature costume and clean the land you have used all week. Bring container for the MOOP collecting and most of all.. have a really good time caring for the land that supports us!!

Sunday 11am at the Man ashes."

Basically a designation used at burning man for stuff that shouldn't be there. Literally it is Matter Out Of Place (MOOP).
