to Bring to the Burning Shithead Festival
- Skin Prophylactics - It gets really hot in Joshua Tree during the summer. Many people think having a festival out there is their idea of hell. If you're one of these people, you should only come if you're willing to be one of the party-all-night crowd climbing rocks out in the desert or hot tubbing. Then you can sleep all day unless other people come and make you wake up and start partying (which can happen too). So you better bring suntan oil anyway. If you happen to like dry heat and enjoy hanging out by the swimming pool in the hot dry air of Joshua Tree then you'll love this place - but bring skin protectant. Water - See comments above. You will dehydrate if you hang out by the pool without drinking water. Mixing generous amounts of water with beer in your stomach is strongly recommended by BSH veterans.
- Shithead - the cold dry breakfast cereal which is orange or green in color, circular in shape and tastes (ever so slightly) of apples. Shithead is sustenance at the Burning Shithead Festival and is consumed in many ways (including fire). The picture to the right captures a rare moment - shithead simultaneously in and out of its native environment.
- Camera - people do take photographs at the Burning Shithead Festival. For that reason you should assume that your picture will be taken by someone as well. The Festival isn't real big on privacy, but you can find some. There we be a digital camera/webcam there this year.
- Lighter - lighters have multiple uses at the Burning Shithead Festival. A few of these are burning shithead, burning things that aren't shithead, and opening beer bottles.
- A bowl - the most traditional way of consuming shithead is orally.
- Grapefruit juice - takes the hard edge off the hallucinations
- Sunglasses - don't forget your sunglasses so that when you've consumed so much shithead that your pupils start to dilate you can make sure you see the shithead through rose colored glasses, as depicted at left.
- Sporting Equipment (especially glowing ones) - the middle of the night in the desert is a great place for testing the body's physical endurance and limits
- Flashlight - if you have one of these in the desert you can signal to people where you are - or you can leave it off and sneak up on people you can hear and then shine the light on them. See privacy comment above.
- Computers - if you have a laptop and dialup internet access you can log in from your room and when people from the Festival come in there you can post stuff live on the burningshithead.com website. OpenBSD is the preferred OS of the Burning Shithead Festival, but FreeBSD, Linux, NetBSD, even BeOS and Darwin are acceptable.
- Swimsuit and Towel - swimming and hottubbing are huge at the Burning Shithead Festival. Unfortunately there's a hotel camera that monitors the pool area but that doesn't deter any activity from the group. Once for privacy someone (of course not us) put a towel over the camera, but the hotel management didn't like that and they came out and took it off. It's that damn privacy issue again.
- Muzic - Toonz - right now we don't have any bands playing the Burning Shithead Festival. We are accepting proposals from groovy bands. Send your C.V.'s and URL to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll checkout your site. Right now our favorite band site is for freshlybaked but we simply can't do without our kumkuat.
- NADS - NADS are often required for burning shithead. Click the NADS link for details. For attack of the killer nad video, click here.
