Burner is that girl. She's witty, pretty, and doesn't dumb
herself down. By day, she's a kindergarten teacher and by night, dances
gogo. Inspired by fellow revolutionaries from John Lennon to Virginia
Woolf, she's a muse and amusing, compelling and never complacent. The
Burner girl gets hot and bothered by the Marquis de Lafayette, aspires
to redefine the zeitgeist like Nietzsche, and provokes thought like
Margaret Atwood.
