Coming Out as a Freak

PRESENTED ON OCT 28, 2014

Going through life, pretending to be "normal", but faced with a life moment that you can either stay, or be free. Jason embraced his inner "freak", and climbed a up hill battle of life, love, and champane.

Who are the freaks?

BY DEREK COGHLAN
@ VOL 5 ON OCT 28, 2014

Derek Coghlan gets us motivated with the rage of a man who is tired of letting the "Freaks of Congress" controlling the situation of doing absolutely nothing! Also through the rage of a man who has been driven to the edge of insanity, Derek wakes the people up, and demand for his neighbors and fellow Americans to get out and vote in the up coming elections.

The Art and Build of Burning Man

BY BEAU TURNER
@ VOL 18 ON MAR 10, 2018

Beau Turner and 70,000 of his closest friends build a city every year in the desert. His local group was also responsible for bringing the first exhibition of the Art of Burning Man outside of the festival to our area. Conversations lead to conversations that lead to next endeavers to design and construct the Mega Cake, to celebrate everyone's birthday at the next Burning Man.

As a side note, there is now going to be an Art of Burning Man exhibit at the Renwick on the Mall in Washington DC. Well done.
