April Fool's Humor - BRCellular...
April 25, 2006
Phoenix, Arizona -- They
say Humor is all about 'Timing', and timing is
what April Fool's is all about. It is that one-day
where almost anything goes in the name of a practical
April Fool's Day or All Fool's Day, holiday of
uncertain origin, known for practical joking and
celebrated on the first of April. Prior to the
adoption of the Gregorian calendar in 1564, the
date was observed as New Year's Day by cultures
as varied as the Roman and the Hindu. The
holiday is considered to be related to the
festival of the vernal equinox, which occurs on
Mar. 21. The English gave April Fool's Day its
first widespread celebration during the 18th
But forget about
the 18th Century, it is 2006 and here in
MY World, my Burner World we celebrate
this day with a Web Site Parody, ALL
about Burning Man.
Is something FUNNY if only the
creator laughs? Humor needs to be
shared, and the best way I have found in
the Digital Age is thru Web Design.
"Being on the edge, Creating on the edge
and Living on the edge."
THE FUN OUT!!!
BRCellular is the
2nd April Fool's web site created by
the ever talented
Scotto, and with any second attempt, it
must TOP what you have done before, take it one
step farther. In 2005 Scotto released
SPOTS - Providing Burning Man a Place To Go
Ever since SPOTS, the 'Thinking Cap' was
on, what to do next. With the help of my
Partner, WildChild, the idea of BRCellular
started to take shape as we crossed into 2006.
There was LOTS to do, this web site would
be the piece de resistance of all
web sites I have created. 130+
Images were borrowed, created, manipulated &
cropped, as well as learning PERL, JAVA & MySQL,
and honing my Photoshop skills
to make this site truly interactive and
