||Galen Brandt Sings at Burning Man....
Start with this video of a piece I wrote about Burning Man at a particularly Big Time on the planet.
From virtual worlds (this was also my virtual keynote speech for a virtual worlds conference in Amsterdam) to the ultimate virtual world
of Burning Man...ends with me singing over the temple burn.
Pix of a wonderful event at Burning Man 2005 inspired by the tragedy of Katrina. Led by Reverend Billy, a rag-tag band of us, including Joan Baez, hopped the big white temple bus and headed out to the temple, where we staged a sing-in raise-awareness-and-money-a-thon for Katrina victims. We sang "When The Saints Come Marching In" for about a million zany years and raised a LOT of money. Action Girl said later that it was her favorite-ever Burning Man event. I'm, uh, the one in the purple hat.
Said event also included Andie's father, an amazing piano player and singer. He and I did a most impromptu duet
of "Wonderful World."
Here's the (very badly recorded) dusty mp3 and pictures:

A link to text with pictures from "Burning Man, Burning Heart,"
a piece I wrote about My Very First Burning Man (yes, A Virgin Speaks!).
And finally, a visual assortment of sorts for your viewing pleasure....different years, same dust:
