Field Manual Sneak Preview and Camp DDP At Burning Man 2015!

The final rough draft of The Official DDP Field Manual was recently completed!


And after receiving a good deal of invaluable feedback from a good number of invaluable reviewers, the final written revisions are now underway.

Once complete, the final design work will commence. Here’s a sample of what it’s going to look like inside, c/o designer Beau Burrows:


The plan is to have the Field Manual finalized, printed, and ready to share at Burning Man 2015; where we will be hosting a very special “Camp DDP” theme camp.

The purpose of Camp DDP is to connect with as many people as possible who want to learn more about the DDP and initiate their own Autonomous DDP Party Cells.

If you’re coming to Burning Man and interested in creating your own DDPs and want to either camp with us or join the daily discussions, click HERE for all the details.


But Yes!

Once the dust has settled and the Autonomous Cells are autonomously propagating, we’ll jump back into production on the DDP documentary Another Night, Another Dream.


We’re on the hunt for a local Vancouver person (or a travel-willing one nearby) who’d be interested in helping The Niven (The DDP’s Mystical Hype Man / Spirit Animal) to launch and market his crazy new clothing line!


He’s looking for someone who fairly tech-savvy (ideally with wordpress, photoshop, photo, video, crowdfunding). Please email ASAP if interested- should be a very interesting gig!

The Final Rough Draft Of The DDP Field Manual Is Complete!

After many months of toil, the final rough draft has finally been finalized!

It was just sent out for review to a large number of Esteemed Reviewers and once their feedback has been implemented and the accompanying photos have been selected, it will finally be ready for printing and sharing with the world.


The Field Manual is 50% Top-Secret Technical Information and 50% Foundational Open-Source Party Philosophy and is intended to inspire the creation of hundreds of Autonomous DDP Party Cells around the globe.

The past four months have been as riveting and ridiculous as you’d expect…

1 Gary and Kerry

It all kicked off with Camp Dogecoin At Burning Man, wherein we connected with a bevy of beautiful friends, both old and new, spread the good word of the DDP and together advanced plans for a Radically Decentralized Future. As can be learned by clicking the pic below:

dogeBMAfter stashing a fourth fleet of boomboxes in rural California, we broke north; back to Canada to continue working doggedly on The Official DDP Field Manual.

A fourth rough draft was finished in early October and shortly thereafter we were selected to present it at a “Decentralized Demo Day” in San Francisco. Here’s the video we created for it (the new bit starts at 4:44):

As mentioned in the video above, we’re planning to print 100 limited-edition, autographed copies of the Field Manual (15 of which are already promised to Kickstarter backers). Sign up to The Official DDP Mailing List to receive a pre-order announcement once it’s live 🙂

And of course, we’ll also be releasing a download-by-donation digital version with zero copyright restrictions, allowing anyone, anywhere to freely download, remix, and print their own.

And we’re also planning to employ a crazy new Decentralized technology that will enable us to offer limited-edition digital copies as well. The tech is still under development, but it should be ready by the first quarter of 2015, the date we’re hoping to finally have the Field Manual complete and released and inspiring the initiation of hundreds of Autonomous DDP Party Cells worldwide.

Click the pic below to check out the nascent global network of DDP Party Cells (including the San Francisco one that just came online) and sign up to receive all Party-Cell-related updates.

Once the Field Manual is finally complete and released and the Party Revolution is fully Decentralized and evolving autonomously, we’re gonna get right back to working doggedly on the DDP documentary: Another Night, Another Dream!

P.S. We’re also on the hunt for a local Vancouver designer (or a travel-willing one nearby) to help us out with some basic layout / design work… please email ASAP if interested.

DDP Peace Bonds and The Nobel Prize For Partying!

Following some major advances in technology and irreverence, we’ve finally cracked the code on how to successfully finance The Global Party Pandemic, wherein we will unite the world in celebration and win the Nobel Peace Prize for Partying, twice in a row.

All detailed in the video below:

And further elaborated upon in this recent Nightline featurette:

Sort of a long story, but we have an elaborate plan to sell 1,000,000 “Peace Bonds” in order to crowdfund our upcoming “Global Party Pandemic” world tour.

These bonds will sell for $2 apiece and all bearers will be repaid after we’ve won the Nobel Peace prize for Partying, twice in a row, as discussed in the videos below.

Anyhow, the bonds will have a digital component (indelibly etched on the Dogecoin blockchain via a Swarm / DogeParty collaboration) and a physical paper component.

And the design of the physical paper Peace Bonds will be determined by a contest!

The image below, designed by @Stephanie Willsey is the base image that anyone is free to remix and / or derive Such Inspiration from. Just EMAIL us your design, using the subject header “Dogecoin Design Contest”. Or share it on Twitter, using the #PeaceBonds hashtag.

Prizes for the winner(s) will be announced ASAP!

Party Doge update copy

Here’s the original source image. Back in the day, countries would sell war bonds to fund their wars. With your assistance, we’ll turn the notion on its head and Save The World. Promise.

The Party Revolution Is Five Years Old.

On this day five years ago, Tom and Gary’s Decentralized Dance Party was loosed upon an unsuspecting planet:

The five years since has been an unrelenting avalanche of adventure, absurdity, and consistently positive vibes, as recounted in this just-released Pecha Kucha presentation:

Big thanks to all the beautiful friends who’ve believed in and supported this crazy thing for so many years. Rest assured, we remain charged and ready to guide The Party Revolution all the way through to its rightful and glorious Transnistrian conclusion!

More information on our Party Manifesto, Feature Film(s), Open-Source Ethos, Social Stereo and 2014 BURNING MAN RETURN are available by simply left-clicking.

The Official Field Manual is developing apace and now exceeds 200 pages, half of which are rooted in timeless Party Philosophy. This sure-to-be-trending tome will surely alter the course of history and inspire a new generation of Party Revolutionaries into the streets.
