(Probably not a) Public Service Announcement – Prepare for the Weather!

This is the second in a series of PSA’s for playa radio station BMIR that emerged out of too much bourbon and sexual tension.

BMIR staff tell me that my PSA’s are being reviewed carefully because they’re “kind of inaccurate and vaguely hostile,” so be warned.
Today’s lesson:  Prepare for the Weather!  (It’s gonna be brutal out there!)

Enjoy!  And if there’s a topic you’d like me to produce a PSA for, drop me a line.

    OMG THIS IS AWESOME!
    First I was like, “Aww man, they are going to tell me how horrible the dust is going to be again. What a bummer” then I was all like “meh, maybe I’ll listen to it anyways” and then I was like, “LOLZ – ‘what kind of psychopaths’… ‘screw this! don’t come to Burning Man!’… SO FUNNY! YOU GUYS ROCK!”

    I’m glad that BMIR is finally being censored for accuracy. It took a lot of time and effort to get the pirate radio stations off the playa that were talking smack about the BMorg. Now finally, the community will have one singular message for everyone – that we’re awesome!
