    I think Pot misread the question as to how old you like your ravers...
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    This brings up an interesting topic. Traditionally raves attracted a younger aspect of counter culture.

    Although....as the decades are moving forward...so are the ravers.

    I believe this is an ever changing question. 40 years ago we didn't have raves. In 40 we will have raves.

    I think the better question is when are you too young?

    I did the rave scene in the early 90's too, and it was the "babies" on drugs that creeped me out more than the old ravers.

    It is actually even bigger then that. When rock and roll first came out, there were very few adults that liked it at all, thus they didn't go to r and r concerts. As the years go by, the age group (s) for r and r music goes up like you said. Now when you go to just about any rock concert you can see people as old as I lol, and geez even older. cr****

    While I was rocking at concerts years ago, raves were a big thing out here in the desert...way out in the desert! Whether it was secret and invitation only, or word of mouth, I wish I'd known back then what I know now about the music cuz I would have probably been there! Just imagine the wide open desert with 100's of people dancing under the stars with the music pumping, and no one there to stop or put limits on them...

    No kidding. I understand the reason behind the pacifier thing, but geez, must it be a pacifier? It makes it hard to understand the scene when you've got 18 yr old dudes running around with pacifiers and 16 yr old girls running around in Underoos and garter belts.

    Feather, since you are our Rave Princess here on the board, I'll ask you your opinion or take on the rave fashion attire...I love the statement you make with your rave outfits...The bracelets of friendship, the glitter, the lashes, and most notably, the glow. What do you think about the girls running around in their Underoos and garters? What are they trying to say? Always curious about this...

    Feather, you will like this (maybe I was ahead of my time hehehe) ... I was in the Air Force, 18 years old, and in my room in the barricks I had a six foot T Rex that was painted day glo and of course I had black lights all over. It was a store bought one made out of Styrofoam that was just the skeleton. I also had a voice activated thingy that when you opened my door he would growl. It lasted for a while till my new Sgt. didn't think it was very cool.

    I say to each his own. I'm not going to tell people how to dress, or judge, it's all up to them how they want to express themselves. Even if it is a cry for everyone to look at them. I prefer the more imaginative, inspired, interesting forms of costumes and accessories. I'm not a booty shorts and pasties girl, I never will be. That's the rave scene though, you wear whatever the hell you want and get down. I think we all wear certain things the other never would have thought of, or have the guts to. That's another thing I love.

    Never, because once you put a limit on raves, you put a limit on Coachella, I'm gonna be the dad taking his son/daughter to shows until I'm not cool enough for he/or she...

    Do I need to pull out the EDC photo I took...

    life is way too short to set such limits on oneself!!.. my rule of thumb is as long as you can rave safely then by all means live it up..

    that being said, i dont think kids younger than 18 should be taking ecstacy/acid/ketamine because 1- that's probably the most formable time in one's life in terms of physical/mental capacity (i.e. not a good time to do hard drugs) and 2- they should be concentrating on school, not raving..

    They're trying to say they're hookers. Is this really complicated? Raving is all about fucking skeevy old dudes in dark corners and then going home to cry in Mommy's shower because you're an underage hooker.

    I guess that's what baffled me at like EDC...The booty shorts and furry boots are HOT...if it's your thing and you wear it well.(I'd love a pair of those leg warmer boots to wear during the winter actually.)I guess I was more concerned about the girls that were barely out of their underoos stage dressing like the Hot Girls and looking...well...underaged, and not sexy in the least.

    There was a time when everyone was older, now, just as everything else, it's been handed down to the younglings in an attempt to mimic it's heyday.

    Enjoy.

    Morale of the story: Raves are old.

    After all the raves I have been to, I am glad that I did not start raving at a super young age. Im glad I was not rolling at that age, I feel like I can appreciate all the love and PLUR more.

    Personally I'm glad I was able to get in a couple years of the actual good age of the rave scene before 2000 came along and everything turned to dogshit.

    PC-2 avies just jacked me up...I thought I was reading an IVY comment...

    I started in my early twenties back in the begining days (early 90's) and plan to keep rock'n it like DJ Harvey well beyond my sixties...it really comes down to the appreciation and soul of the music and the release those beats create amongst us individually...the release of positive energy...I love going to oldschool reunion parties and seeing how hyped everyone gets without drugs and all the stimulation is created on the basis of the music and the syc seamless mix and skill of the dj!!!
