Richard Nixon's glittering half-life sarcophagus / Re: [Feel free to ignore] unlimited navkat rave/music thread« on: January 18, 2012, 10:23:39 pm »
I prefer if everyone finds their own vehicle...it doesn't have to be The Rave. I'd just like to share mine sometimes.
Feel free to share the things you love! I am just saying that it's a bit silly to claim that the rave itself is inherently part of some kind of revolution. It would be a bit like saying that making beads is part of the revolution, know what I mean? Or that fire dancing or getting a tattoo is part of the revolution. People tell themselves all kinds of silly things to make themselves feel good, but if partying was revolutionary the 70's wouldn't have been the end of an era of progressive thought in the US, it would have been the beginning.
Actually, I do find you to be a bit revolutionary, having escaped working for a corporation and instead, fired yourself into the hybrid of an artist/businesswoman. With kids.
I am endlessly enchanted by the little, disobediant things people do that add to the fun/good/kindness/freedom pile in life. Even if it seems like bullshit to others, putting any little bit out there means acres to me.
I may be a revolutionary. You may be a revolutionary. However, making beads is not revolutionary, and neither is partying.
