Day dreaming about playing everyday with my Swing City monkey family. This swing was SO much fun (and a total workout). I didn’t get on it until more then halfway through the burn. Little bits of fear holding me back. Im so grateful to have been able to camp with these badass humans. Even though we are never doing it again, I am looking forward to joyful childlike moments like this in the future. #swingcity#burningman2018#burningman#fuckyourburn
This kiiking contraption was so fun!! The goal is to swing all the way around, 360 degrees. I almost made it over, but it was so much harder than it looked! I honestly thought I was going to hop on there with no problem and swing my way over, but wow was I so wrong! The g-forces on there when you tried to stand up from a squat were insane! I was so exhausted after just a few minutes, and my whole body felt absolutely WRECKED. I can’t wait to try it again someday! Thank you @moderntarzan for the tips & the spot, @swingcitymonkeys for putting this all together and creating such a fun play space, and @slackinhigh for snapping this video!
Jump for joy! This was my favorite burn yet. Living with @filchyboy who initiates the #swingcity project every January and months of advance work meant that I was more than ready to celebrate by the time we arrived on playa. It’s incredible how the contributions of so many monkeys creates this tremendous, magical gift every year. Of course now we’re looking to the next. Which won’t happen again because it was way too much work this year. But if we did, the new plans are even better and more efficient and grand than ever before! Celebrating this incredible journey, and the path ahead. Thanks so much to the talented @guernseymiguel for this incredible 📸 I love how he caught the full shadow here. He calls this one Emily Poppins 😆🔥 #burningman#burnergirls#celebrate#burn#brc#jumpforjoy#jumping#desertlove#playalove#dance#jump#parasol#puremovement#play#playeveryday#industwetrust#swingcitymonkeys
After some rehearsals in between workshops, here's our first try at this #raycharles classic: Hallelujah I Love Her So. It goes without saying that my drumming skills needs A LOT of work but hey! We had some fun with @marielgastiarena who in fact started playing piano a little later than myself on drums, less than a year ago. More fun to be had and hopefully some improvement too! #raycharles#piano#drums#fun#amateurhour#lindyhop#jazz#swing#swingcity#stepbystep @baswingcity
