Welcome to the Fabulous Bathrooms
Burning Man 2013 took place this past week and the best way to describe the event is to show it to you. Here are some of our favorite crazy things we saw in the middle of nowhere.
The Burning Man
Where did this guy get his name? You'll find out soon enough (just keep clicking).
Talk to God
Having a phone call with Him is the least weird thing about this. Who in their right mind uses a pay phone anymore?
If there were any alien survivors, their first impression of us Earthlings must surely be pretty weird.
In Love and In Heat
Just your typical couple out for a 103-degree bike ride.
The Hug Deli
Free hugs. Can't beat that.
Giant Baby Head
This scary toddler face doesn't even look that out of place here.
You'd have to be nuts to build this thing.
Mutant Batman Car
Word was, this car was street legal. Either way, it's super cool.
What, no Ferris wheel?
Dancer in the Light
Not only was she willing to have her picture taken, she wouldn't stop following us around afterward, asking us to take more of her.
"Art cars" are popular on the playa, adding another layer of surreality to the whole crazy thing.
It's never too dusty to show off your outfit.
No Appointment Necessary
This lonely hair salon was not only missing customers, but also stylists, a sink and a wall.
The Toilet Bowl
This was a fully functional, two-lane bowling alley conveniently located right next to a row of port-a-potties.
This movie house, completely isolated in the desert, showed actual films at night. And yes, there was popcorn.
This see-saw was a favorite among all lovers of facial hair rides.
Nautical themes have long been ironically popular in the desert.
The big ape isn't quite as scary once you notice his pink little tutu.
The desert surface slightly resembles the moon, providing various space crafts the perfect terrain.
We didn't stick around to see if this guy ever fully emerged.
The Burning Man's better half (and not the only naked lady out there, either).
Slightly menacing, extremely cool.
The great white art car at feeding time.
Temple of Like
A cruel reminder that we couldn't access our Facebook accounts.
At the intersection of cool and bizarre.
We're pretty sure this sign is meant to be ironic.
There's so much to look at during Burning Man, but this view put it all in perspective.
Another art car during the setting sun.
The Burning Man
THIS is where he gets his name.
