Be Here Now: Burning Man 2014 Video

art predator

photo-2Published just yesterday, here’s the latest Burning Man video from KJ + Stefan Spins.

This is the duo who, with the help of a cast of a thousand, made one of my favorite Burning Man videos, 2011’s Home, using the song from Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros.

This year’s video is a little more mellow, like last year’s, below.

Even though I didn’t go in 2012, I love the 2012 video below; the song by Michael Franti is a household favorite.

I’ve got a few more videos from this year’s Burn that I’ve collected to share as well as a few photo galleries (still getting my photos organized!) so stay tuned –or subscribe!

And yes that’s me above waiting for Embrace to Burn…

Crescent Moon

“The moon is a loyal companion.
It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.”
― Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me
