for the young and/or square among us, "PLUR" stands for "Peace, Love, Unity, Respect". this is the creed by which you are meant to conduct yourself, not only at a rave but, as a true raver, in all your dealings in life.

violating PLUR is the ultimate rave sin, but it definitely happened from time to time. here's one of my own worst rave crimes:

as an *extremely* foolish young man i had seen people break open glow sticks at raves many times and toss the magical glow fluid into the air in a beautiful luminous arc, and i got it into my head that this was a cool and safe thing to do and i should try it myself. the time i choose to try this was during a particularly high tempo dj set, and with everyone around me dancing in a frenzy, i flubbed what should've been a controlled arc motion and basically just ended up spraying little flecks of glow fluid everywhere, including into one of my friends eyes. that's when i learned that, although glow sticks *say* they are non-toxic on the packaging, that is only true of the *outside* of the glow stick. my friend's eye was red and burning for the rest of the night, and needless to say he didn't feel like dousing his cornea with poison was in keeping with the "spirit" of PLUR. i hosed up. sorry man

post the worst PLUR violations you have committed or seen in this thread.

someone's never had a hotel party where a bunch of naked girls/guys are spraying each other with that glowstick fluid


some girl tried to tell me that it is actually PLURR because the last R is responsibility and I said that sounds hella dumb and would fall under the 'Respect' umbrella anyway AND it doesn't work with the little PLUR hi-5 thing you do to exchange candy

also as an aside I hope the mainstream moves on soonish because all the "raves" now are mostly giant rear end 2-3 day music festivals that start at noon and end at like 10pm filled with cops who are actually enforcing no-drug no-lights no-candy rules and that ain't no mutherphukkin rave (buy the sponsor beer buy the sponsor beeeeeer)

hmm it seems kind of pointless to keep the legs warm when your rear end and titties are hanging out but i'm not complaining.

I feel like at least one component of PLUR is redundant in the presence of the other three. Like if you are peace love and unitying already you are automatically going to be respecting as well. At the same time I think R for responsibility is a good addition as it could mean a responsibility to oneself and one's own well-being as much as to others, which is not necessarily implied by PLU. Please alert the rave thought leaders as to my suggestion, postehaste.

my friend played a set at a stargate themed rave, there were some mixers and cdjs up there that no one was using so i went up too and played with them and pretended i was part of the set and did a lot of "cmon guys put your hands up" motions it was kind of fun

here's the really good decorations that made it a stargate themed rave

respect yourself as well as others. Encompasses 'being responsible' and isn't quite the same as peace/love/unity for mankind but yeah I see your point.

But again you gotta consider the little handshake thing

i mean idc if people want to drink some alcohol, I'm mostly lolling at how clearly people are being pushed towards buying the $10 beers at festivals because where before you could be rolling face sitting in the corner drooling on yourself no one would say peep to you now you'll get kicked out + harassed by security because 'drug free event'

no massagers, no lights, no beads too like wtf is that that's not a rave assholes

e: like EDC; if you go and have fun then great but it's not a rave anymore

garfield hentai posted:

in LA I went to a rave that was apparently "anime" themed (I did not know this but who cares anyway) and the decorations were literally two big screens on either side of the main stage showing anime stills - half of which were straight up hentai

guy who constantly proudly referred to himself as a enjoyable human being then decided he was genderless and now is a post op mtf
scrawny nerds who had both weed and non weed vape pens on lanyards around their necks
dr who fans with dr who themed outfits
male my little pony fans with my little pony themed outfits
a guy who told another guy with an adventure time tshirt that adventure time isn't actually anime but since it's so good it's honorary anime, although as of typing this i'm remembering this was actually at the prudential center during an anime convention but it was funny so i'm keeping it here
juggalos (guessing this is less rave and more upstate new york)
people tearfully emotional over candy trades (kandy? kandi? candi?) and how meaningful it was
vendors in slapfights

my experience is pretty limited but the people i saw there were exactly who i expected to see there

EDIT also they didn't really "mosh" they just stomped around like they were playing dance dance revolution really really angrily

no i was a bitter goon on stage having fun pretending to play with equipment that wasn't plugged in

im not saying it was an awful experience and i hated everyone or anything i'm just saying that fedex mercury probably has a somewhat specific idea in mind of what the average rave-goer looks like and from what i saw he probably would not be surprised if he went to one

You should call the cops when you see MS people in wheelchairs and tell them mdma and amphetamine are scientifically causing seizures and muscle spasms and laugh as the police tear them apart like an overcooked bird and tell them to stop resisting.

My last interaction with the police while my eyes were wide as saucers was when they kindly offered to escort me + my friends back to my car (I was leaving the event) because they were worried about potential muggers and they very kindly slowly followed in their squad car while we walked a few blocks and then said 'drive safe!' and went back to the main entrance.

I'm also a white man so you know, lol.

This was when EDC was in LA for reference. It was held at USC's arena but USC while being a nice school is in the middle of one of the shittier parts of LA that you prolly don't wanna be walking around in at night.

My last police interaction was playing glow stick hopscotch with the officers at Electric Forest.

My newest pet peeve: People that call concerts raves.
1 huge mainstream dancepop or brostep DJs with one stage? Tight rear end security? The venue has club or stage in the name? Nowhere to sit without paying $80? That's a concert.
12-30 local DJs 3-6 mainstream dnB headliners on 3-5 stages? Bum rear end security that takes bribes? The venue is a weird spelling of another word or is literally in a empty warehouse? Backroom casting couches lining the corners covered in powder? That's a rave.

One of my friends said she went to a rave for NYE. She went to Hardwell at Echostage. loving Hardwell at loving Echostage. That's not a rave.
