Too much press!
The Press: The house is surrounded, put your hands up and exit the building.

I thought it was a unbiased article and really tried to portray the scene in a positive light. It didn't just focus on drug use though it was definately mentioned. And its cool how it tried to define a few different genres of the music even though I didn't neccessarily agree with those descriptions. (the jungle/d & b one didn't even talk about the bass!)

Ravers spread news of the parties by word of mouth and at "the board," (www.nwtekno.org), where rave locations, times and ticket details are posted or withheld until the day of the rave.
Heh. "At 'the board'." For some reason it just sounds funny...
:) Chris :)
That waz cool how they described the muzic.
I think it waz funny how they could not even begin to describe drum and bass tho.
How can u? Besides the word "crazy".

I acctually thought it was a good article too.
I'm just all-around tired of all the press this scene gets.
I swear, every article or show on TV about "raving" probably brings hundreds of more people into the scene out of curiosity.

I blame the Olympian Article for this terrible incident and many others I have witnessed and have yet to witness in the future, I'm sure:
Top Foods Travesty (images/smilies/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=12&t=006902)
What bothers me even more is that every article the Olympian has printed about the rave scene prior to this has been full of nothing but negative comments and sometimes lies/yellow journalism. It's as if they're trying to make good now that rave culture is a financially viable commodity.

You actually blame the Olympian on some random girl chewing on a binky out in public?? Pfshaw! Like you have to read an article in the paper to find out about binkies. :rolleyes:
I knew candy ravers in '96 who would sport their binkies and proudly chew on them out and about. (These were the same kids who proclaimed themselves United Candy Ravers of America) They did get harrassed of course. I remember this little ten year old black kid yelling at one of them on the sidewalk one time: "Why you chewing on that?? You look like a big baby!"
I have an amiga who used to chew on binkies at her high school...and this was years before she got into the scene, or even heard about ravers, candy or otherwise. (This is in the dark ages of the early 90's)
Just be happy there finally is a balanced, positive article about the scene instead of the usual sensationalistic crap that the media likes to shove in the public's face.

Sara Jackson (the reporter)
Interviewed us and and mad that story.
She seems like a intern of sorts.
Full of new ideas, and really wanted the TRUE story, not just the typical bull shit.
I give her mad props for getting some of the truth out. (without haveing her supioiors put red tape all over her story and turning it into the same old bull shit)

Word of the growing scene even has prompted Lt. Gov. Brad Owen to declare a fight on "this newest drug."
good luck brad!
how is the fight against drugs doing anyway?
the war on drugs reminds me of Palestine & Isreal
pretty good article besides this nim-sak

i am waaaay tired of all the press but at least this one seemed to just give the facts not make it sound like parties are only drug addled freak shows.

"Raves themselves are not illegal. It's the illegal people who come and prey on the people." -- Jim Chamberlain, Thurston County Narcotics Task Force
