Video: Burning Man 2011

Burning Man 2011 has come to an end. Friends of mine who attend every (single) year are home from the journey, spiritually awakened, refreshed, and tan. That seems to be how most Burning Man folk return back to their respective homes once the festivities are over with. Burning Man is a week-long event held every year in Black Rock Desert, Nevada. It's called 'Burning Man' because a giant effigy built from wood is burned at the festival. 50,000 people traveled to Burning Man this year from near and far. In fact, for the first time in the history of Burning Man, the 2011 festival sold out. All in all, it's a pretty big deal. All not-so-nice stereotypes aside, I honestly would like to experience the event myself. Maybe next year.

In the meantime, check out this video. Fixed around the (what makes it so catchy?) song "Home" by Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeroes, this video gives you a little bit of insight to Burning Man 2011.

WARNING: While nobody is completely naked in this video, there is plenty of skin to be seen. Use your own discretion before playing this video in the office, in front of your small children, your green-with-envy girlfriend, and, of course, your grandmother.
