While working at the Dragon shop I met Gary Mann, a sign painter from Venice CA, and the designer of Interactive Love. "Well of course I'm not going to build it myself! That would be egotistical." I hope he gets the volunteers he needs. He also creates all the hand painted signs at Burning Man and here at the ranch.

One party came in with Winnemucca Dave — and a 40-foot fire cannon. Matao decided he could cross the path of the flame before the cannon went off. That's how he got his new name, Scorch.

Meanwhile, Boris was casually spinning his fire chains and toasting his pants, or anyone else who got too close.

The best part was when Suicidal Bunnies broke through the stage.

Boris hungers for fire, but has enough to give away.

El Mano readies his baton.

Matao receives his new name, and a little medical attention.
