Have you noticed that block of text on the floor of the Castro Muni station? Or that bus shelter poster urging you to believe that "Good Things Take Time?"

I remember my first Burn fourteen years ago. Having been told mental preparation for Burning Man required physical preparation, I created checklists to monitor my checklists. Arriving on the Playa, I expected an elated nirvana, but found an emotional hell instead. While “welcome home” was the mantra of the day, I felt far from home amongst the wilderness and weirdness of Black Rock City.
After all my physical and mental prep, I realized I’d done no emotional prep.
Before they were big 'ol Hollywood stars, actors Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and director Edgar Wright were the best of buds. Fittingly, their newest film and the finale to the "Three Flavours Cornetto" trilogy, The World's End (the 'mint chocolate' of the trilogy, if you're asking) is another clever, British paean to friendship, fraternity, and the love of a good pint.
