beating the summer heat

Does the Man have his foot upon your neck? Would you rather be Burning the Man? Now you watch all the Burning Man action from the comfort of your own home, or your work desk.

You can see images of the premature ejaculation of the Man, induced by Hunter S. Thompson impersonator, Paul Addis, whose idea of radical self-expression and breaking conventions included a dose of arson.

You can also see video of the work "Crude Erection" which is as astonishing in its scope as it is myopic in its vision. While appearing to comment on our dependence upon crude oil, it somehow ignores the vast amount of energy needed to plop 59 tons of "art"in the dessert for 2 weeks.
