poprocks.com: narcissism central: burning man 2003
"Gone living. Be back next week."
"But it wasn't a dream. It was a place. And you and you and you...and you were there. But you couldn't have been could you? No, Nomadic Nutria Hunters, this was a real truly live place and I remember some of it wasn't very nice, but most of it was beautiful -- but just the same all I kept saying to everybody was "I want to go home," and they sent me home! Doesn't anybody believe me?"

And, how could they, when it was all completely beyond belief?! For instance, nutria themselves are truly beyond belief. An altar dedicated to all that is sacred and profane about nutria is truly beyond belief. Suckling "milk" from a giant nutria is truly beyond belief. Nutria Anus balm is truly beyond belief. Carolling for beers in the back of a pick-up truck is truly beyond belief. Pickle tasting happy hour is truly beyond belief. The succulent flavor of pickles'n'queso (together at last!) is truly beyond belief. Giant robotic insects that learn to fight each other are truly beyond belief. Being inside the "infinity box" is truly beyond belief. The Iron Chef is truly beyond belief. Breakfast wraps made from nutria snack stix are truly beyond belief. And finally, a giant hamburger in the middle of the desert is truly beyond belief!
