The bird looks a little strange this year. Is it supposed to represent rising from it's ashes and that's the reason one wing is smaller than the other? I prefer previous versions myself. This one just looks out of wack and like they ran out of wood.

That's, the intent, that it is rising out of the ashes, agree it is goofy looking -- the designer's intent isn't very accessible to understand.

Pagan rituals...gotta love them. The Phoenix looks great the way it is....the rendering is supposed to look as though it is fighting its way out of the fire and ashes.

Can anything really be "in wack"?

It does look a little lopsided compared to previous years, but regardless, it's a fun event. Now, what was REALLY strange was the "performance artist" from last year...walking around on what looked like upside-down bowls, and lights and wires. I'm open-minded, but I didn't get that!

Yea I agree. What is it with that performance artist and his robot get up? Well apparently he will do it again so I guess we might be able to figure it out this year.
