The Shanghai Cacophony Society (also known as the Raccoon Society) are pranksters of compassion. As members we try to invent shenanigans that will trick, confuse, and delight people. One year at Dragon Burn we started a new theme camp that was less than it seemed.
China didn’t go well for me at first. I lost my fiancée, my job, and was struggling to adjust to life in a country so unfamiliar to me. I had all but decided to leave. This is the reason that I stayed.
The first regional Burn I ever went to was Dragon Burn, which I ended up having a hand in running. After getting sucked into Burn culture I wanted to see what other regionals were like and, being in Asia, we ended up going to Burning Japan.
When I lived in China I started a journey that ended up with potentially the largest bar crawl in China. It was an amazing event, and a lot of fun was had by all involved. But I’m hoping that this year the record will be broken.
Cut, Copy, Paste. Anyone not living under a rock for the past 30 years knows what these are and probably uses them every day. First made popular in the 80s by Apple’s Macintosh and Lisa computers, these surprisingly simple operations have influenced the way we use computers for generations.
As a volunteer for Dragon Burn I am responsible for maintaining the Dragon Burn website. Part of that responsibility is curating images created by the Dragon Burn Community. As with other aspects of running a Burn, what seems like a simple task can have some unique challenges.
