One of the big takeaways of the Burning Man experience is that life doesnt only have to be cool and fun and creative and art-filled in one spot in the desert one week a year. Burners across the country organize other events, smaller in scope but similar in spirit, year-round. The burners of Seattle, reputed to have the largest community of regular attendees outside the Bay Area, is planning a traditional post-BM party, or Seacompression, in Magnuson Park's Hangar #30a sort of ceremonial easing-back-into-the-real-world, a chance for those who went to show off their art and costumes again and for those who missed it to get a taste of what went on down there. Tonights bash, according to a floor plan on the Ignition Northwest Web site, will include a parking place for art cars, catapult art, a mutant sofa, a grapestem sculpture, and the Temple Whores Massage Table and Chill Space.
