Rave un2 the Year 2000

You know what's really fucked up about this picture? It's from 2007. Not 1997, 2007. What person who is 19 in the year 2007 thinks to themselves, "you know what subculture I can really get into? That same one my babysitter when I was 4 was into."

It's not that I can't buy that drugs and bad dancing have a certain staying power. My beef here is with the pacifiers and the plastic bracelets and the goofy whole rave style from 1995? How has that piece of the P.L.U.R. puzzle not died out?

I've never done ecstasy (or E, or X, or "Stacy" as I like to call it) but maybe its accoutrements are everlasting? Vicks Vapo-Rub too?

Perhaps when you're rolling that's still the best accoutrement. Someone get working on an iPhone case you can suck on.

Such a shame that girl's bear costume got rip to shreds. And to agree with Zee, yeah that guy in the plaid shirt totally fried his brain.

you know, sadly, it's only gotten worse over the years. at least ten years ago the girls might have worn pants. stupid prostitots.

he cammo pants guy in the back probably is a Junglist and is looking down on them. Those guys take the rave too serious.

The very very sad thing is that most street x today is cut with a LOT of Crystal Meth.

They are not really rolling they are wack on meth in that pic ...

You have to be really lame to do the pacifier thing ... that always was they case.

Now in the real X nightclubs in 89/90 -- we would not have tolerated that shit. ;)

I have taken ecstacy, or as my friends and myself refer to them as rolls, many times. It makes you dehydrated so you have to drink lots of water. When your rolling, everything feels good but your jaw tends to stiffen and sometimes you can find yourself grinding your teeth, so most people chew gum or suck on lollipops to avoid that. Its helps the jaw muscles relax. So it didn't start out as a style or fad, its just another way for people to enjoy rolling.

They arent prostitutes. it gets hella hot when your rolling. the less you wear the more comfortable. the paciferiers are super nice. i got rolling so hard one night i could hardly eat anything except things i didnt have to chew cause i fucked my jaw up so it lasted for a few days. and if its staying so much then it must because its hella fun and its all about the plurr.
peace- having beef is hostile
love- love cause hate just aint the way.
unity- because everyone can come together no matter who you are
respect- cause its what everyone wants. besides if everyone was the same then itd be boring.
responsiblity- to know your limits! PLURR
