DUI: Dancin' under the influence...
yes, makes a BIG difference (what is this...church?)
kinda, but if the music's tight, i'll get over it
who cares? deephouse already puts me in the groove
hunh?? this poll is silly..
One of the most frustrating things on the dancefloor is trying to enjoy yourself surrounded by people who are too high on drugs or liquor. These people simply kinda stand there, taking up space, and bobb up and down, or side to side, not really dancing. And when someone comes along who dances soulfylly, creatively, they stare like creatures from Dawn of the Dead. Also, what is this shit with people who gather in groups on the dancefloor who simply talk and chat, or who use the dancefloor as a short cut to the other side of the room?
I would say simply that the club experience is alot of things, including being social and for many, getting lit on drugs. Dancing is part of the recipe also. Taking your dancing seriously is a great thing, but just remember is not all about you or those that want to show their moves. Shit, I'm no great dancer, but I like the club...
i can not participate in this poll for reasons untold but, its a good question.
i personally hate it when people r in my way when im jammin.
i was told that in other countries people talk, drink, smoke on the dance floor.
i do not do that for i am an old loft and garage head and hit the dance floor to dance. sometimes in a room with great sound i'll take a moment and take in the purity of sounds but then i'll jam on.
though it does irk me for people to take up space and stare, drink talk etc. i've learned to adapt.
as for as needing a boost to party: get lit before i go and/or go outside and partake in some goodies.
I remember back in the 80's at Frankie Knuckles' loft Warehouse, people were getting so f***ed up you didn't need to directly indulge just take a few deep inhales. While drugs were a part of the party scene, I didn't then and still don't now need to get high to get high. I close my eyes and go someplace else when the right DJ takes me there!
If at first you don't succeed, redefine the parameters of success and move on.
IMO, Iíd rather they didn't sell or serve alcohol at the party. Iím not against drinking and donít mind the BYOBB policy but I find that when there isnít a bar onsite, those who would prefer to get drunk go somewhere else thus leaving those of us who choose to lose it through the music more room to do so. I come to dance; to play with others (through the dance) and Iíd prefer to do it on a dry floor.
I dance better and feel the music more when I'm messed up. But, I'll dance whenever if the music is good enough.
If I had a couple of drinks I feel more relaxed and I will dance longer. If I am sober I am more of a wallflower. Plus I think I dance better when I got a mean buzz! What about you!?
