If you're like me and Second Life and Burning Man are centerpieces of your existence, then Burning Life is just your thing.

This year, for the fifth-straight year, Second Life publisher Linden Lab is devoting some of the virtual world's land for an homage to Burning Man, the annual countercultural arts festival.

The idea is to create a temporary zone in which residents can create fantastical works of art that will last for a short period of time and then disappear forever. There's a big sculpture of a man, and a big temple, and at the end, both will "burn." Sound familiar?

Anyway, registration for one of the 62 available Burning Life plots is now open and submissions must be received by Sept. 7. The event begins Sept. 24 and ends Oct. 5.
