In no particular order, and not a complete list. (mostly closing out browser tabs)

The electric giraffe , which was parked in front of our camp for most of (Thursday?) night while undergoing motor repair. (This can take hours on the playa, because first you have to get back to your camp on foot, figure out what tools you don't have, and then, especially at night, go stalking art installations, some moving, to see if they brought the right tools. Anyway, his lights still worked, although the web site doesn't seem to be updated to include how you can now pet him and he'll wiggle his ears.) Mainly because they thought he looked good with our Buddha. That night we lured an impromptu DJ set-up with the hypknowtrons, it all worked out.

The black light dancers, ArcheDream.

Playa MiniGolf.

Haale, who entertained me when I ended up doing a 3 hour shift answering the DoTA ... er, OBOP Phone Booth to God.
(Universal philosophies that wouldn't occur to you outside of burning man, "If you sit in God's chair, expect to take God's calls." And it does start making you wonder about how whatever gods might be around these days were the ones who were effectively asked "watch this, I'll be right back" millenia ago and haven't managed to find a new lucky victim yet.)

The double rainbow. Not a doctored image, or, at least, not very doctored. It really happened. And, you know, it was nearly funny the first 50 times people asked if someone slipped them the appropriate drugs before seeing that photo.

neat time lapse video of the man, er, men. (10 days in 10 minutes)

the cursor kite.

the deep playa perspective installation

links to find:
better photos of the sapphire portal
animations/video of the cubitron

Due to "playa time", my special patterns were not running on the L3K ring (around the Man) during the eclipse. I even made a point of staying up and heading out to the Man to check.

However, I don't think *anyone* *else* noticed.

It was both awesome and horrifying.

Awesome because, damn, after years of joking about it, someone finally burnt the Man early.

Horrifying because I could already see Jon Stewart's facial expression upon reporting that someone at *Burning Man* got busted for Arson. And hear a thousand cynics who'd never even attend smugly declare the event past its prime.

Meanwhile, wind, rain, and rainbows. (And a brand new Man). I had total event burn-out yesterday. Today, I got my first flight in a small (4-seater, Cesna?) plane. Things are much better now.
