The Laird Is Banned From Burn2

The Much Honored Bock McMillan, laird of Southern Charm and prince of Cascade Falls, today took it upon himself to make a manifestation for the artists rights to freely express their opinions at Burn2.

Suddenly and without even a word of warning - which is usually common practise everywhere else in SecondLife - the laird found himself at home. He had been banned from Burn2 and could no longer return.

This is outrageous! The organizers are dictatorial and totally undemocratic.

  2. I have to correct you in one regard, buddy, this was NOT the LEA-sims but Burn2 which LindenLab USED to run under the name of Burning Life but now it is the Burn2.org that runs it.

    1. Undies, Ms. Shilva? I am profoundly shocked! Those are my finest jockstraps and with my Pride-stockings, thank you very much!

      Besides, I was just changing into that outfit when I got banned. The outfit I actually wore most of my time at the venue was the one at the bottom of the post.

    1. Dear Ms. Oh, I have difficulties keeping up with all the places that have banned you, so sorry!

      However, I have now corrected my post according to Mr. Goosson´s remark, so stop whipping me ;)

    4. He IS the best lawyer Save.. as long as he doesn't get distracted by pretty men. Apmel's cousin should never have talked to him while he was demonstrating..

    5. Bah, Apmel Meerson was indeed beautiful, but Ms. Oh should go with a lawyer she trusts, anything else is pointless!

      Best of luck, Ms. Oh, I will return your 10 L$ at the first possible occasion!

  7. I bet if you shaved your legs and used a Brazilian Bikini Wax they might look at it differently.

    1. Haha I am not wholly convinced it would have helped much, but I am definitely sure that I draw the line concerning my sacrifices for art long before the point where I shave my legs! ;)

  8. To bring this back to what it is s is all about I will add this. What happened to Kandinsky and the rest of us standing up for Kandi at Burn2 is nothing new. Two years ago performance artist Vaneeesa Blaylock had her artwork kicked out also. She then summed up the issue succinctly:

    “I know that Burning Man and Burn2 have a degree of utopian thinking at their core, but I cannot believe how much you seem to want artists to bleed for the privilege of living in your utopia. I do not believe it can be a utopia if you are unconditional master and I am unconditional slave.”
