Got this from klue website.. 😀
You know you are a raver when …
… the total amount of sleep you get on weekends is the sum of how many times you’ve blinked since Friday night.
… you grin like a fool whenever you see a commercial for “E News” “E TV” or “E: The Entertainment Network”
… you navigate around the city using service-stations as landmarks
… you can’t pass an empty warehouse, big open field, barn, aeroplane hanger, phone booth, etc, without getting that far-off look in your eyes and saying “Wow, what a great site for a rave!”
… you and your friends hear tumbling noises from the washing machine and all start to argue whether it’s jungle or hardcore
… you have sleeping patterns that would kill normal human beings
… almost every letter of the alphabet has a separate meaning to you
… you forget about your dream of becoming a Doctor and start to wonder what it would be like to be a cartoon character…
… you wallpaper your room with old flyers
… all your friends have names like Gee Wiz, Marko, Angel, Hyper…etc…
… you’ve got a huge pile of dead glow-sticks in your room that you can’t throw away for ‘sentimental’ reasons
… you don’t own a watch, and if you do it’s either edible or has a secret compartment
… you lose 10 kilos in one night and the last thing you think about the next morning is food
… you can live for an entire weekend out of your backpack
… you think perhaps Bill Gates was thinking of something else when he designed the Internet Explorer logo…
… you’re happy when there’s a recession because it means more empty warehouses
… you’ve got so much glowing stuff in your room that you can’t sleep because of the brightness
… you’ve been close friends with someone for weeks without actually knowing their name
… you get home and you’ve got absolutely nothing that you can talk to your parents about from your weekend
… you automatically migrate towards anything fluorescent because you think it might be someone with a glow stick
… you buy clothes based on texture
… you don’t give a flying f **k what you look like anymore and just dance, dance, dance…
… you can stand in front of a 12,000 watt speaker for an hour and be loving every minute of it
… you won’t spend money on things you need, but if someone at a party needs money, you’ll give it to them
… you can wear out a pair of shoes in only a few days
… you can not carry out normal day to day activities without having little lights to play with
… you have a one-track mind, and it goes Boom-Boom-Beep-Boom-Beep-Boom-Boom (or… oountz, oountz, doof, doof, oountz, oountz, doof, doof!)
… you carry enough flashy electronic-things in your bag to light a small city
… when you are driving your car home you feel like you’re in a Video game
… air, water, food, music, little lights… all hold equal importance to you
And lastly, ATTENTION ALL RAVERS! please read this!
[Edit] To avoid confusion, THE POST BELOW IS WRITTEN BY SOMEONE FROM THE KLUE WEB BOARD.
Oh and read this too 😀 Zouk in Kuala Lumpur
Zouk KL seems to be the hottest topic nowadays, but I wanna give you guys a different perspective on things…
First off, I’m not a Malaysian & I’m not a Singaporean…I’m a foreigner working in Singapore at the moment. But I spent a lot of time in KL (still do), so I know both clubbing scenes pretty well.
And let me tell you something!!! Singapore clubbing is not a scratch on KL clubbing!!! Whichever magazine you read (Mixmag blah blah), Zouk Singapore always gets a high rating…but just ask yourself, who actually votes for Zouk and why? None of the UK or US people would vote for Zouk obviously coz they’ve probably never been…it’s just the Asians that vote for it…and why? Because there’s a steady flow of international DJs performing. I’ve been to Zouk ONCE..and never gone back since..it’s a pile of shite with a shite-flavoured cherry on top.
Now let me give you an example of why Zouk sucks BIG time. December 2003, world’s number 1 DJ, Tiesto, plays in Singapore for the first time ever, at Zouk. Picture yourself there, and what can you imagine? Thousands of sweaty clubbers reaching for the ceiling chanting Tiesto!?………NO!!!!!! OH NO!!!! OH NO BLOODY NO NOT AT ALL!!!…At 2am half the crowd are standing on the dancefloor sending text messages on their mobile phones!!…brilliant!!!
That just shows you what a bunch of uneducated posing assholes Singapore clubbers are. They dont go to Zouk because they like the music…they go to pose. Full stop. Zouk thinks they have created a culture…and I say…BOLLOX TO THAT!!! Created a culture???? HA! I’ve seen dance cultures before and Zouk is definately NOT one of them…try taking a look at people in the UK tatooing the Gatecrasher Lion on their own asses…now THAT’S a culture.
Oh…I nearly forgot…and what’s Zouk’s most successful night? Mambo Fucking Jambo on a Wednesday night!!!!! Sheer genius isn’t it? What a brilliant dance culture they have! Damn I’m feeling jealous already!
KL, on the other hand, ROCKS!!! The clubbing scene in KL is so exciting. It is still developing fast, and the different types of music being played are in more pure forms. (Singaporeans think that house is techno, rock is rnb and techno is “music with the same beat”)
So I wanna ask all of you…why does KL need Zouk? What makes Zouk think they are so good that they can come over to KL and improve KL clubbing with their club? Atmosphere could piss all over Zouk, along with a load of other clubs in KL…hell, even Beach Club could piss all over Zouk’s Mambo Jambo night!!!
As an outsider to both countries, I think that Malaysian clubber should be insulted that Zouk think they can improve your nightlife with their big pile of shite. It’s gonna fuck up the KL clubbing scene…spreading mambo jambo everywhere…shit man it could be a disaster for KL clubbers. It’s like Bosnia opening up an electronics factory in Tokyo…nobody would give a shit and it would fuck up!!!
Finally…Malaysian clubbing is young, vibrant and full of top-class clubs and REAL talented DJs. I’ve been to many many superclubs around Asia and Europe…KL still shines out from the rest as a scene that is full of passion and open-minded clubbers. So please don’t let arrogant people spoil it for you…YOU ROCK!!!
