I take a swig rom the whisky bottle and passit to the man next to me,
reecting that the last time Istood in ront o a bonre in the middle o the night sharing mind-altering substances with strangers I stood in a cold, dusty desert inthe American West surrounded by hundreds o uorescently-clothedhumans over-excited by drugs and alcohol and the shared experienceo burning down a very large neon-encrusted wooden man the size o asmall skyscraper that exploded with reworks and tumbled in ames tothe dry, cracked earth.

Te smaller children, blinded by their masks, turn the wrong wayand bump into their more graceul elders who gently guide them inthe correct direction. By the time the whisky bottle comes aroundagain the villagers are leaping into the embers, over them, across them,daring the sparks to catch their costumes aame.

Hmm..moderated debauchery...sounds intriguing...might have to channel my own inner Celt...but without burning an effigy. As an "act of 'radical self-expression'" that kinda leaves me scratching my head!
