Burn for Water Update: We Have a Way to Go!  Thank you for all who have donated! You ROCK! If you haven’t donated yet, NOW is your chance to make a tax deductible donation! It’s Win-Win! Friday I got to video chat with 11 year old Josie, of Josie’s Well. She’s my inspiration for raising $11k for a water well in Ghana. Watch below how she was inspired to start Josie’s Well at age 9 because of a lemonade stand and $30. Josie has a Challenge for us all: Can we reach $7000 in donations by THIS Monday eve? That’s only 20 people donating $100! And if 60 people donated $100, or if only 120 people donated $50, we will hit our entire goal! Let’s do this!  Please forward this TODAY to your Burner tribe so we reach Monday’s goal that gets us closer to our BIG goal of $11000 by August 15th.  Big Dusty Love, Kate Houston, the Rock Star...

2018 RSL Music Guide: Must Read, New Info!

2018 RSL Music Guide: Must Read, New Info!

As you know this year is an important year, and that’s why I’m emailing you today. Check out what’s going on below! Larry would be proud that I have decided to use the RSL Music Guide as a catalyst for us all to leave a lasting legacy. Here’s Our Chance to Leave a Legacy In order for an angel investor to fund the 2018 RSL Music Guide, we need to raise $11,000 for Josie’s Well/Water Access Now, a nonprofit to build a water well for safe water in Ghana. We have until August 15th to raise the funds and still get the Music Guide produced and to the playa.  So let’s work together to create the music guide, create lasting change in Ghana, and leave a lasting legacy. The Why: The Story I didn’t realize how powerful leaving a legacy was until I attended AfrikaBurn in 2017. It was in the wee hours of the morning, sitting under the DMV’s red beduin tent while sipping South African boxes wine at sunrise, that I engaged in philosophical conversations with AfrikaBurn founders Paul Fletcher, Paul Jorgensen, and Robert Weinek. In those wee hours we discussed, “What comes next, from Leave No Trace?” These beautiful, gritty influencers had an intention: Leave a Legacy. For AfrikaBurn it looked like this: save plywood from dismantled camps and build outbuildings for a local school; collect leftover non-perishable food and stock an orphanage’s pantry. “We have so much,” they all agreed. Then earlier this summer I met an eleven year old girl named Josie, from Seattle Washington area, who at age nine, raised $10,000 to build her first well in Ghana.  She created her own non-profit, Josie’s Well, in partnership with the local non-profit Water Access Now, and now at age eleven, Josie have realized her vision threefold. I recently shared both stories with a Burner friend of mine and Music Guide supporter. And on the spot he proposed a challenge:  If I rally the Burner community to raise $11,000 to build a well in Ghana, he’d fund the entire 2018 RSL Music Guide.  Watch this video of me explaining how this all came to be. If eleven year old Josie can do it, WE can...

The Rock Star Librarian Music Guide as Radical Ritual The guide, Black Rock City’s burning book of musical rites, has become a coveted, annual ritual. In response to and to participate in this year’s Radical Ritual theme, I gift you all the data from the Rock Star Librarian Music Guide in spreadsheet format. You choose what to do with it. Print the spreadsheet PDF exactly as it is or accept this call to create your own musical ritual and meaning from the data. Transform and playfully re-purpose it into an alternative format and focus of your choosing and gift it back to our community. Are you a drum n bass aficionado? Or do you have a perfect way to reformat  the info into a small, pocket sized booklet you’ve always wanted? Over the years many of you have shared that you found ways to upcycle the guide and create your own versions of it to gift to others. I love this idea! Please share your creations with me via email or Google Drive share to therockstarlibrarian at gmail dot com and I will reshare it! Visit rslmusicguide.com to download the 2017 Rock Star Librarian Music Guide!   No Print Copies on the Playa – Unless You Bring Them I’m taking this year off from Burning Man after a solid, ten year run and 18 Burns total. But please print out several copies yourself and gift them on the playa!
