      Before you all go getting your panties in an uproar, or your knickers in a twist, or your head-space all fang-dazzled, have no fear, here is your weekly fix of Doug-filtered events and the guarantee and certitude you require that, yes, Virginia-burner, there WILL be a M&G at the CBC this very night and every Tuesday for that matter.

      Here we are, covered in snow and gearing up for the inescapable warm breath of a nascent Spring. Last week as a sign of this seasonal transition, the streets of Boston ran green with beery vomit in that annual rite of the purging of Winter, St. Patrick's Day. The number of arrests set a record, perhaps this is some kind of Boston Groundhog's Day, where the number of arrests in inversely proportional to the length left in Old Man Winter's residency.

      Hey, Boston received a BMan Art Grant! Congratulations to the team of Blake & Blake and I am sure, innumerable accessories to their Art Crime that they are working on, the Penrose Triangle. Can't wait to monkey around on that.

      Don't forget that FIGMENT Boston needs your interactive art and performance. They are also looking for art and artists for their May 312st fundraiser. More info here:

      A sad week for Boston, the Boston Phoenix is no more. Time to get out there and steal a Phoenix newspaper box so that you can keep it in your kitchen to store bread and think back on the days when print media was important.

      Come on down and tell us about your actions and blossomings into Spring:

      7:30PM 'til late at the Cambridge Brewing Co.,

        Hmmm, well, what to say. Boston has been hit by a tragedy the likes of which it has not seen for a long time. As the days pass by the story will slowly unfold as to the whys and the whos. The thing that strikes me the most is the lack of panic on the part of a populace, and the professionalism of the police and emergency responders. Especially for people that are not exposed to this kind of attack on a regular basis. The stories of people just coming together and doing what needs to be done are one of the reasons that I am so proud of my city and its denizens. Here's hoping for a quick solution to this tragic puzzle. Not sure what any of us can do to help, but blood banks are probably looking for donations and there may be some sort of victim's fund set up soon. If anyone has more details on what might be needed to help the situation, please forward it to the group. Keep Calm & Carry On.

            Lets start a BOSTON AGAINST BOMBS EVERYWHERE movement.
            Solidarity with any city where bombs terrorize citizens. 

            Boston could, for e.g. send at least - we feel your pain - type aid to every city in Syria that gets bombed, or anywhere in the world. Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sudan, The Congo, Mexico....

            Damascus, Kabul, Khartoum, Tripoli,
             New York City, Washington DC, Atlanta, Boston
            Tel Aviv, Gaza, Rome, London, Dublin. 
            And too many more!

            AGAINST BOMBS means PRO HUMANS, sharing empathy, for a start. We do already, yes, we need to do more- otherwise we become numb. And deepening empathy is a start, slowly we go from there. 
            The culture of our Burner Meme is deeply empathetic as we know. We all rise together, and cooperation is fun!!

            Ultimately a change the world away from competition to cooperation, to lets care for the least of us, and reduce the causes of war where ever we can, step by step, by changing the root causes.


            Paul Lee is putting together an event Saturday night,  if anyone on this list can help me find  and or execute a suitable graphic, I'd like to make some stickers that say that, to give away.

                Firefly is over, long live Firefly! I just finished washing the mud off of everything that I own. At least it is not corrosive when moistened, unlike the Playa. There was enough mud on the Rover that we added it to the garden and I expect to see great results from that corner of the plot. What a great event this year! Re, re, re-inspired to get everything done for Burning Man.

                Thursday evening there will be a Boston FIGMENT M&G. A site tour begins at 6:00PM and starts at Dewey Sq. After that, join the crew for drinks at the Granary from 7 'til 10ish. This, our 4th year bringing FIGMENT to Boston should be amazing as the list of artists and performers is pretty darn cool.

                Come on out and support your community in these desperate times. This Saturday afternoon will be the 3rd Annual Smoke & Steam to support both the theme camp Automatic Subconscious that you know and love and hate and whose shade is oh so nice, and Video Bleep whose mastery of the DJ & VJ arts and spherical projection mapping is second to none. Some details are below in the EVENTSES Guide for Sat., July 20.

                Let's Go Fly a Bike needs your help too. Looking for people who want to help operate this bizarre creation while on-Playa. Especially looking for an organizing type person who can be responsible for recruiting and assigning volunteers to shifts. Please let me know if you are interested in helping out at all by dropping me an email off-list please.

                Tonight around 9:00 anyone who is interested will be asked to leave the CBC bar for a brief interlude and help us out on singing a rousing rendition of  'Let's Go Fly a Bike' in the courtyard. Hopefully someone with either a decent video recorder, or, more importantly, a good audio recorder, will be on hand to record us so that it can be used in an Indie-Go-Go campaign to update and send LGFaB to the Playa this year. If there is no recording equipment available, then at least we shall have a bit of fun.

                So much stuff happening, what a whirlwind this time of year always is. Very inspiring, very crazed, very, very... space madness inducing. Add into this frothy mix the fact that we now have 4 Burning Man Regional Representatives! The BMorg has noticed that we are really doing a lot up here in the land of Boston and have seen fit to give us a little more of a voice. Congratulations are in order to Terry Dovidio, Jered Floyd and myself I guess as we join the Peter Durand in representing our regions needs, wants hopes desires and etc. to the larger Burning Man organization.

                Oh My Gawd! Does the truck really really load in 25 short days?!??!?!!!
                Does the Man Burn in 46?  Plenty o' time, plenty o' time, to lose your ever loving mind that is.

                Time Expanding Gin, here I come!

                Tonight, 7:30PM 'til late at the Cambridge Brewing Co.

                http://www.cambrew.com

                Come on down and hoist a pint or two of the finest fermented brew around and tell us all about how you are going to get your Burning Man projects all done LOOOOONG before truck loading. This year for sure.

                    So heart-warming to see the community, both far and wide, turning out to help someone in need. One of my absolute favoritest things about this community is that it is so much more than just a way to network for parties, it is a creative nexus whereby so many interesting and challenging things get accomplished AND it is a fantastic support network for when shitty things happen. let's keep up doing the good stuff. The fund for to help Gabriella recover from having her house burn down is coming long nicely. Here is the link if you are interested in helping out:

                    https://www.giveforward.com/fundraiser/t8c3/gabriella-s-fire-recovery-fund?utm_source=giveforward&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=donation_receipt_T0

                    Open Studios Season is surely upon us. Take advantage of this opportunity to see actual real, live artists in their natural environments creating actual art out f raw materials, strange ideas and the spark of creativity. Some of it you will understand, some of it you will not get, some of it will be WTF?! and some of it may go home and be placed somewheres in your very own home. Happy adventuring!

                    All Hallow's Eve is also upon us, come on down and let's talk about costume ideas, who knows what you might see around town this season, giant owls? the Four Seahorsemen of the Apocalypse? Belly-Dancers? Sparkle-Ponies? Gadzooks, perhaps even Struggalos...  Oh the HORROR of it all.

                    Come on down and tell a scary story or two. If yours scares me, I will buy you a pint

                      So much to dooooo! Here come the Christmas and we even have snow, after a fashion...

                      Gabriella, whose house burned down last month, has great friends who are throwing Gabriella a FUNdraiser this Fri Dec 13, 2013 in Boston, MA (it's good luck, really!). The proceeds of door admission and silent auction items will go to help Gabriella get back on her feet. For more information and details on how to rsvp for the party, volunteer your time and/or donate to the auction click here: http://welovegabriella.com/

                      Just in case you have forgotten one of the trials of the desert wastes, here is a useful info-graphic, so, remember to Piss Clear!

                      The next two were so useful, or just so damned well written, that I am repaeting them again this week.

                      Howsabout something hand-made? something arty? something crafty for that specials someone(s)? Below you will find a vast plethora of options for Holiday sales and festivals wherein you can find all manner of strange artists hawking their uniquely odd creations for you to take home, wrap festively and give to others so that they can brighten their nests in the deep darkness of the interminably dark, Northern boreal time of the snows and too much television watching.

                      ArchitectureBoston magazine is devoting its Spring 2014 issue to the many planning and design challenges facing Boston's new mayor, Marty Walsh. Help us show the new mayor what works by nominating your favorite Boston building, public space, or urban policy initiative, from the ICA to Jackson Square to the food trucks on the Greenway. Send your shout-outs, with a brief explanation on their importance, and a high-resolution photograph if you have one, to <ideas@...> by December 31.

                      Come on down to the CBC this evening and hoist that pint and think about just how much all of your relatives would appreciate you if you brought them BEER for the Holidays!

                        First off, tonight is, I believe, Ranger Pretzel's birthday. I expect to see him at the CBC, so be sure to wish him  Happy Happy.

                        Second, Mr. Brian DeRosa leave on the morrow's Am for to move to the left coast. I do believe that he will also be at the CBC this evening, so come on down and wish him good bon fortune & bon voyage.
                         
                        Man-Oh-Man, so many good things coming up to do! I loves me this Spring and the release of dormancy with its attendant restlessness and desire for activity. This weekend, our favorite watering hole, the Cambridge Brewing Company, celebrates its 25th year in business providing a great place to meet  for the most diverse crowd of characters I have ever come across, and that was BEFORE the Burners started going there. 25 of their beers on tap from 2:30PM 'til 1:00AM. There are sure to be some amazing draughts pulled up from the barrel cellar for this event!

                        Our amazing friend Ben Guraldi's epic production, the 48-Hour film Festival is filming this week, so if you see KEE-RAZED people with video cameras running all about and amuck in the city, now you have a clue. They will be screening the results next week at the Kendall Sq. Cinema, so go and check it out, always a good time, but get your tix now, because it ALWAYS sells out.

                        Somerville Open Studios! Go forth and witness one of the most dense collections of artists and artisans on the planet and go see where and how they work. Lots of amazing stuff to see, and perhaps even take home and add to the fixings and shininess of your nest. One of the things that I like about it, beyond the art and the artists themselves, is the chance to see the great diversity of studio spaces and how differently people set themselves up to have the right creative environment for themselves.

                        Our favorite local brass marching band, ENSMB, is heading to the west cost for to give them a dose of their particular brand of awesome. Find out more and help them out if you be so inclined right bout here:

                        OK, OK, enough already, if you be so inclined, come on out and join us at the Cambridge Brewing Co. for a pint and some pleasant conversation. 7:30PM 'til late.

                          Would be nice to show them a bit of Burner love for all they've done for us over the years.
                          Plus, hey, awesome beers!

                            Plenty of stuff to do and festivals to go to here as we enjoy the last gasps of warmth during our mutual descent into Autumn and the imminence of the depths of Winter. What better way to stay warm than to come on out and have a pint or two of the good stuff with us while discussing some strange flight of fancy that you have winging around in your old, cranial vortex?
