So how was Burning Man this year? Well, we can tell you that aside from a frightful sandstorm on Wednesday, the weather was absolutely delightful. We can tell you that there was the usual supply of astounding art (more than last year). We can happily report that music on the playa this year seemed a lot less skewed toward the electronic end of the spectrum. We can tell you that Black Rock City has been its usual loud, colorful, dirty, energy-filled nexus of celebratin' and hellraisin'. But none of this really means anything at all.
