Consider Me Miles Davis

Earlier today, I was telling Katie about this video of the Juggalo Gathering that I sometimes watch when I’ve had a really bad day at work. You’d think that the general themes of stupidity, filth, and terrible music would make my day worse, but really, it’s sort of uplifting. Yes, the participants are almost heartbreakingly dumb and I imagine the smell of the festival site to resemble a “foetid stench” of Lovecraftian proportions, and, again, that music is completely awful, but it’s really just doofy kids trying to have a good time.

So I found the video and sent it to her, and while I was there, YouTube suggested another. Then THIS happened:

And you know, when a methy Juggalette looks at directly into the camera and says your name, you feel a terror deep in your bones. It radiates throughout your body, from the follicles atop your head to the tender flesh along your ribcage to the backs of your knees to your urethra. Because yes, that was enough to make me want to piss my pants.
