So... let me get this straight.

You're claiming now that you used to go to Doo-Nanny all those years when it was free?

I would not say "all"....
but been there, done that.
Doo-Nanny is most definitely NOT worth a $10.00 admission.

You forgot to add "in my opinion" to that statement, of course.

Ten dollars for three days of entertainment and you complain?

Have you seen the prices of movies, concerts, anything thse days?

And that's something that may have elluded you... Doo-Nanny is being written up in places like the New York Times now, hardy just a "small social event" at this point, and in fact was a world class art and music event years ago:

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/08/garden/08do...

"...LIKE a medieval village, Butch Anthony’s 80-acre family compound is a self-contained universe, and every inch of it is an expression of his prodigious creative spirit. It makes a tempting destination for folk art aficionados, as well as the sort of art world tourists who’ve already ticked Marfa, Tex., or Joshua Tree, in the California desert, off their lists. Mr. Anthony, a lanky and laconic 46-year-old who dresses exclusively in Liberty denim overalls (he owns 25 pairs) and a battered straw hat (he has 10), is a self-taught artist, builder and local hero, whom the state of Alabama once chose to make a Christmas tree ornament for the White House — the Bush 43 version. He is also the host of the Doo Nanny..."

"...Like Burning Man, the extreme art fair held each summer in the Nevada desert, the Doo Nanny offers both a burning effigy and an exercise in creative camping. Mr. Anthony has thoughtfully provided a tepee, an outdoor kitchen, a solar-powered shower, outhouses and a wood-fueled hot tub, all built from and decorated with the sort of handmade trash-into-art pieces — ethereal chandeliers pieced together with cow bones and twigs gnawed by beavers — that are his specialty. It now attracts an intrepid crowd of makers and their fans who gather on the last weekend in March not only to show their work — and sell some, too, if they’re lucky — but to hang out with like-minded friends and partake of Mr. Anthony’s particular brand of Southern hospitality, which is certainly as homespun and country as his accent, but has an impish, renegade backbeat. It is also a chance to see Mr. Anthony on his own, very atmospheric, turf."

No, Doo-Nanny isn't for eveyone... but who would /want/ it to be?

Hopefully the price can draw in enough people to create a SEE ROCK CITY style SEE DOONANNY phenomena. Thousands of BURNING MAN FESTIVAL types clogging the roads WOODSTOCK style commercializing it all.
Well, nobody at Doo-Nanny really wants too much of that riff-raff stuff, the modest ten bucks for three days of music, art and hipster fun is just to help cover the costs of putting a shindig like this on.

What music and art festival do you know of that offers more for less?

Hell, most are closer to a hundred bucks for three days, last I looked.

I don't know... are the Spanos related to the Anthony family?

I just can't see why they started an admission now and its is not worth $10.00.
The music really isn't that great also.
I think that now that you got to pay to attend it will go downhill fast, not that it has that far to go.

That makes sense, and ten bucks for three days of multi media entertainment is a great value.

Thank you for the heads up that Doo Nanny now has an admission. We had planned to drive down that weekend but I refuse to support what now is obviously a money making scheme.
It was fun while it lasted I suppose.
Thanks again.

What poet wrote:
What poet are they talking about? Columbus has no published poets. Just vanity press and internet postters of homemade Valentines. No. Columbus has ZERO poets. Real poets like ROD McKEUN have books out in hardback like BETTE MIDLER and ALLEN KEROAUC BURROUGHS EDDIE MURPHY CRUEL SHOES. No there are no poets from Columbus. No bands either. BLUE FLANNEL is not REM or JOURNEY. Real bands have MOLLY HATCHET ALBUMS on CBS or RCA VICTOR labels. Suspension of disbelief is home computer vanity recorded mix for friends and family. Real bands have real labels in all major stores. Like Steve Martins KING TUT or ELVIRA. There are no successful singers, bands or poets in this area. None. Not a one. Just wannabe street urchin of diminished brain wave function. They have their own world. These dooninnys call it OPEN MIC. Like HYDE PARK LONDON has a soap box for its NUTTERS.
Well the closest we come to that criteria may be Ma Rainey and Carson McCullers, so far.

In politics, Columbus Georgia does have Newt Gingritch, graduate of Baker High School.

Another heads-up if anyone is coming from out of town for Doo-Nanny and plans to stay for the weekend, camping in the Woods Of Wonder is no longer free, either:

http://doo-nanny.com/info/accomodations

Accommodations
Camping

We have Camping spots available for purchase for 2012 now via Paypal. Mark your dates and reserve your spot! Spots are limited this year and selling out quick! Better hurry!

You can get started with basic tents and sleeping bags, but this is another area of Doo-Nanny culture where we want to encourage extreme creativity. This is where tying stuff to the top of your car comes in.....creative Tarpology(we do a workshop on this), rugs, plants, hanging fabric, sofas, art, etc, etc, are some of the ways to take it up a notch, and this makes the village more creatively cohesive and enjoyable for all. Join with other campers to create a "neighborhood" with your own lounge and cooking fire. Create a game or other interactive element to your camp. Create, surprise, amuse......there will be a prize for the most creative encampment. Camper/RVSmall campers, RVs, utility vans. Camping spaces will be reserved for Artist along lakeside behind Artist Booths. Larger RVs have to camp in Possum Trot Camp behind the auction house.

There is a modest camping fee of $50 per person for basic tent or car camping. This covers festival admission and admission to Saturday night celebration, 2 nights camping, and helps us provide both basic and odd services like portajohns, hot showers. Children under 5 are free, and we ask that all minors are supervised and with adult(s) in camp. Also, as much as we love them...PLEASE leave your dogs at home. If you plan on bringing your RV there are 16 sites available for $60 per person. Also, there are 10 extra private campsites available for $70 per person. You can pay ahead here by using the donate button. Make sure you write what you're paying for in the "purpose" box, and print your receipt. You will need this for check in. Bring that along and we will direct you to the best camping spots. If you prefer to pay by check or cash please arrange ahead of time via email or snail mail. Camping is limited book ahead.

Pay for camping here...


Doo-Nanny Participant Guidelines

1. Join the creativity...make some art, collaborate, pitch-in, dress-up, learn a new dance step.

2. Leave as little trace as possible....leave your campsite better than you found it, and take as much of your trash with you as possible.

3. Be radically responsible and respectful. Leave any dogs, guns, or drugs at home, and if you drink, be legal and responsible.

To summarize:

$50 per person (not per campsite)

Motels/Hotels
Closest Motels/Hotels are in Phenix City Alabama

Hope this helps and hope to see you all at the 2013 Doo-Nanny!

Yep, shame to see them ol boys get mesmerized by the almighty dollar.
Used to be just people getting together and being people but now they seems to be a price on it, damn shame, damn shame indeed.

Well, in this day and age, I guess ten bucks is considered a lot, but that's really pretty low compareed to most, or all, music festivals... the beauty of the internet is that previous Doo-Nanny performances have been filmed by East Alabama Cable-TV and can be watched right here free of charge:

Heck,$10 is only... two bucks per part.

I call that a bargain, my friend... and if you can't afford that pittance, maybe you'd best saty home, I reckon.
