Sorry, no etymologies found.
The thing that gets me about BM is that this no-history, zero-to-4-magazines-and-two-booklines publisher expects me (and people like me) to pay $10 for the magazine.
But John's initial point, that what BM is paying is terrible, is true.
And, again, BM is not reselling your work at the level of what they're paying you for it.
I appreciate that you are seeing this through your Hobbyist-tinted spectacles but you are completely ignoring the fact that BM is trying to charge far above market rates for the product it is marketing whilst paying far below market rates to the people providing the content.
Ugh. I got to Burning Man and am involved in BM-style festivals here on the East Coast, but there's this current of, honestly, brainlessly privilged hippy attitude that seems to thrive in my community that pisses me the hell off.
I did mine in BM 2085-20 "Pottery Red" which rather a brick/cranberry color, and it's awesome, and shows off framed prints so well.

I'm gonna try to blog in BM later .. seems like it's been forever since I've written in BM ..
Ryan, how can you call BM a personal trainer while keeping a straight face?
In what may be a simple or a subtle point, my writing on BM is enmeshed in a long history both of discourse and enmeshment in a community that is of great emotional importance to me, and who in my (detailed and knowledgeable, if I may say so) perception need to pay some more attention to the simple point I was making, because they have gone a little too far with the nuanced and subtle one that I made quickly and you make at greater length. shecky
