Well, guys, I think Burning Man might have jumped the shark. (Can big smelly desert festivals fueled by psychotropic drugs and artistic pretensions jump sharks?) I think this because Puff Daddy (I will never, ever call Sean Combs anything but Puff Daddy, that’s final) was there this weekend.
According to Huffington Post, pictures of the mogul/producer/terrible rapper wearing a golden glove a la Michael Jackson, some sort of sailor suit and, inexplicably, holding a pink parasol (see: psychotropic drugs) at Burning Man have emerged on the Internet. Which, while awesome in so many ways, does not really embody the spirit of Burning Man. I don’t think. Actually, I don’t really understand what Burning Man is about, other than getting weird, which I guess he accomplished.
Mostly I just wanted to put a picture of Puff Daddy in a sailor suit holding a pink umbrella in front of burning pile of sticks while the sweet and low strains of “I’ll Be Missing You” play in the background in all your heads.
