    Burn 2 - the Man and the Temple burn


    This weekend is the last two days of Burn 2, Burning Man in Second Life.  There’s lots to see  and do there, including dancing and live music, but two events you definitely  don’t want to miss are when The Man burns and the Temple burns.  Both are  iconic events of the festival, and will be accompanied by the unforgettable  drumming and dancing of the Lamplighters (full disclosure: this writer is a  Lamplighter).

    The first Man burn was this morning; there are two more scheduled for this  evening (Oct 23) at 8pm and tomorrow morning at 4am (both times are PT and  SLT).  There will be three Temple Burns: Sunday Oct 24 at noon and at 8pm,  and Monday Oct 25 at 4am (PT and SLT).

    This picture is from this morning’s Man Burn.  After the burn, while  Lamplighters drum and dance, other avatars strive to keep the fire going in the  embers of The Man by carrying debris into the dying flames. Second Life members can teleport to The Man by clicking slurl.com/secondlife/Burning%20Man-Bordello/243/1/25

    The Temple Burn is certain to be another memorable event, as it has been in  past years.  Second Life members can teleport to it at slurl.com/secondlife/Burning%20Man-Rabbit%20Hole/8/168/25.
