I know this link was dropped in the comments recently and has been making its rounds on the 'Netz, but it had to be posted. Psychopathic Records, or, ahem, the "label that runs beneath the streets," apparently puts on a massive shindig every year for the folks who call themselves Juggalos. That's slang for Insane Clown Posse fans. If you watch the above infomercial for The Gathering, as it's called, you'll hear ICP member Violent J eloquently describing the feeling of the magical energy that's in the air and how that feels, energy-wise. Magically. Now it's time for the Violent J Drinking Game:
The real magic is the energy that's in the air at the Gathering. Nothing can match that energy. The second you get there, you can feel it. It's pure, utter magic in the air unlike anywhere else on the planet. The Gathering; the feeling in the air; the feeling and the camaraderie between each other; the feeling of family love...It's sort of what it's like what I'd imagine it's like for Muslims who visit the holy land of Mecca. That's what I imagine it to feel like. What it feels like for Juggalos who visit the Gathering.
If you picked the word "feeling," finish your beer. Look, I know this is shooting fish in a barrel, but this event has apparently existed for AN ENTIRE DECADE. I had no idea. I wonder if Darwin Award entries from Cave in Rock, IL, spike dramatically one weekend in August every year. This year's festivities will feature performances by the usual suspects (Kottonmouth Kings, Vanilla Ice and all that) as well as Pauly Shore, Ice Cube and Coolio (how's that Academy Award holding up, buddy?). They also have
roflcopter helicopter rides, wet t-shirt contests and probably more Faygo than anywhere else in the world.
