Happy Halloween

First off, I want to wish all of you a Happy Halloween.

Tonight is Hallowicked in Detroit; the last Hallowicked show of the year. I was at one of the Hallowicked's earlier this week. Now, if you're sitting there asking, "Why the hell were you at an ICP show? I thought you hated juggalos," then get out.

Recently, I have to admit that I've been a bit conflicted. About this blog, about juggalos, and about myself in relation to the first two. I've had discussions with some juggalos (on here and online) about this blog (haters were outright ignored, as usual). Some could see the point, but still thought it was a bad approach to dealing with the "problem". They'd say it just brought more negativity. While I feel that negativity is the best approach to dealing with something that's pretty negative on the surface (if you say it's not, then you're lying to yourself; embrace it and move on), some of the talking points started to make m…

Brilliance

I was recently browsing around the Internet, and I came across a forum that had mentioned the article The Human Behind ICP Fans Against Juggalos Speaks. Of course, it was one of those automatic RSS-type "reposts" that allows people to comment on their own site. But what I found on the post was a short paragraph describing the real root of this entire cause.

It was a way for us to express ourselves and scare the h3ll out of people who had tried to keep us down for so many years. It was the bullied kids fighting back and sticking up for one another....and being totally wicked and evil about it. Sick of the abuse...sick of the names...sick of the bull$h!t.....smash in their brains.....and together.....they were family. Not a gang.....not bullies....not thieves...not the bad guys....the righti…

This is a piece of mail I got a couple months back. I've been meaning to post it, but I never got around to it.

Hey,
I just wanted to say you blog is fucking amazing.I am just like you,I've been listening to ICP since Riddle Box and over the years I have slowly started to hate Juggalos.You can't even walk through a mall while wearing a Psy shirt without getting a "Whoop,Whoop" or a "What up ninja" and it's really sad that we're the only fans who do this.I have never once seen somebody wearing a Slipknot shirt run up to somebody else wearing one saying "Whats up maggot."My wife and I have stopped going to concerts now because juggalos think that every lette is a slut and that they can feel all up on her like she's a piece a meat.If juggalos are all about family and shit then how is this being tolerated.If I had a sister I know damn well I wouldn't go grabbing all over her.What ICP should do is have all us old juggalos speak at o…
