Rarely Asked Questions
Why your site is so minimalist?
It could be seen as an artistic statement, a reflection on the bare nature of the desert, an initiatic experience to unlock you outer instinct, a Situationist respons to the 21st century angst. No!
This endeavour is a one-man-show in the pure ultra-risky entrepreneurial spirit of make or break.
Add to the equation, a French born artist with limited web-designing skill and you get a retro-looking site so out-of-fashion that it should have a following cult and be a trending item for the next 20 secondes.
I am someone without the sense of humor, is this serious?
"You talkin' to me? (x3) Well! I'm the only one here!"
We know all too well that sense of humor nowadays, end of 2016 soon 2017, is a rare commodity.
Sit back, relax, you are tiptoing in the multi-faceted world of Black Rock City, bouncing from harsh reality to wacky weirdness, this is a state of mind.
Starting January 2017 you should get used to it.
What about shipping?
I see your point.
Because this part doesn't require too much brain power, we know how to do it quite well. We Do.
Over the years, for the first book, we shipped US and International a thousand (1000) packages without (0) incident.
Usually, international and Canada are double packaged, we know that the US Postal workers are extremely delicate with our packages
but we don't know for the rest of the world.
So far we have had no complain whatsoever even from French people.
Usually the team (me, myself and I) ship the book within 24 hours of the order. Depending on the mood we might add goodies,
stickers, postcards from BM years past, early buyers get two mini-posters. This will not last long given the limited amount.
US Media mail is the cheapest, most of the time we include it in the book price, it depends on our mood. In average it takes a week.
Priority mail usually is about 2/3 days.
About Canada and International, we are deeply sorry, we know we are losing customers but the postal rates are outrageous, on the Paypal button we are absorbing part of the cost by shaving our (thin) profit margin.
What is Black Rock City?
Buy the book!
May I return my used book?
That is the first time we have this request.
We gladly suggest that you keep it and gift it to your campmate who just lost the latest Martha Stewart's" How to redecorate your gloomy hexayurt in 5 easy steps".
How can I help?
Thank you for this question. First, we are looking for a web designer who will design a sleak and trendy site. In the true sharing and gifting spirit of the desert, we welcome volunteers who will discover true enlightment within the share of one's love and the universal joy of working to save the planet.
Second, someone who knows how to promote intelligently this book will earn my eternal gratitude.
What are you listening to?
Most important question.
