i read this thing about ‘raver’ on wikipedia. it seemed pretty cool and alt. seriously wish i was old enough to hang back then. i think people had a good time in warehouses and raw spaces back in 1997. i hate when you miss a cool subculture because you’re too damn young. i think i would have related to all the bright colors. i probably would have made some really awesome friends too. can’t believe i’m getting nostalgic about something i wasn’t even part of. i don’t care. I AM RAVER GUYS!
i think i might write my local policitician about the benefits of ecstacy and the value of changing the laws in this stupid puritan country
sometimes i have thoughts that ‘dont make’ sense to people’s conservative values. i think obama is such a stupid turd. sometimes you have to say things that run counter to what “people” think. they always keep putting us into all these little boxes but you know, we’re just gonna break out of them!
stop trying 2 contain my soul
Early house music started in the city of Detroit. Workers in automotive plants were so conditioned by the mechanical nature of their work that they started sampling the sounds of machines. They secretly brought their laptops to work and recorded the sounds of the machines.
The first techno parties were held “after hours” at the Ford Manufacturing Facility (once everone’s supervisors would leave for the day). Since the workers were mostly dudes, it became kinda gay. People eventually started talking about “Jacking It” and that became the official House Music Slogan (HMS).
“Jack” became a quasi-mythical figure symbolizing the “1st techno blackman.”
While Barack Obama was working as a community organizer, he would often go to Detroit to help with “grassroots events” featuring local DJs and graphic designers from the community. The year was 1986.
Barack heard this one DJ called Adonis. He went to the DJ booth and took a picture of the vinyl record using his camera phone. He then emailed it to Michelle, who was still in Chicago.
Eventually they found the mp3 on Hype Machine, but it was a remix. It wasn’t until two years later that Barack would find the original vinyl record. Pitchfork’s review reminded him of Adonis, whom Barack had forgotten about.
In the house music community, when people said “No Way Back” it meant that you became too gay and couldn’t return to your heterosexual lifestyle any longer.
This ultimately became the basis for the Academy Award winning movie featuring Russ Crowe and Helen Hunt.

Love early techno. This song is from an old Ellen Allien mix CD.
