Playa Lingo - 2001
The condition something gets when brought to Black Rock
City; the coating of playa dust that simply doesn't go away.
Dude, you shouldn't have left your car
window open, even a crack! Now the interior's totally playafied!
Blessed By The Playa
No, dude, it's cool. My car has just been
blessed by the playa god.
The feeling one gets immediately after Burning Man; the
worn-out, post-playa depression one has upon returning to the Real World.
I wish I could call in sick on Tuesday. I am
Sun + sweat + playa dust - shampooing = playa hair.
I love playa hair! Now I've got hold
that Paul Mitchell or Vidal Sassoon would die for! Of course, it's not exactly
holding the way I want it to.
The dork-ass name you come up with for yourself so you can
feel special while at Burning Man. Of course, you'd feel like an idiot if you
ever actually used this name in Real Life.
I know Bob is trying to get in the spirit of
things by having a playa name, but does he really need to demand that everyone
call him Lord Devildog?
Reputed animal that lives on the playa. It reproduces by the
feathers shed from boas worn by BM participants that aren't picked up. The rain
embeds them into the playa and they germinate into playa chickens.
The playa chicken problem was especially
rampant after Burning Man last year, but that was before they started asking
people to stop bringing cheap chicken feather boas.
Cheap bike with one speed for getting around Black Rock
I'd certainly never ride this playa pounder
anywhere but here ÷ it's a piece of shit, but it gets me from point A to point
Those huge puddles of puke found on the playa, usually the
morning after the Burn (or, in some unfortunate cases, on your shoes)
What did you eat, man? You just made playa
spin-art all over my installation!
PULD: Poly Until
Those folks who, under the influence of BM, profess that
they have become 'polyamorous' ÷ until they leave the playa and the drugs wear
Should we call Lizzy and Dave when
we get back to San Francisco? Or do you think they're probably just PULDs?
