Lets not forget this. It was something that admittedly went right over my head back when i was new to the forum. Just dismissed it as "crazy" but i think part of me just knew i wasnt ready for the info contained within.. and im still not sure i was ready for this.
Very interesting perspective this has given me, it reassured me i made the right choice a couple years ago when i began to get involved in (and soon realized it wasnt gonna go good if i stuck around) a scene eerily similar to the things "Tarah" described in the warehouse parties. This guy, lets call him Worm, i met through my dad and on the surface he seemed really dopey but also spiritually inclined. He.. showed me some things one night when i was at this "mud fest" type thing called Redneck Rave that my dad coaxed me into attending with some other family members. Worm was the son of this chick my dad had recently started dating, and he seemed cool, and had a certain charisma to him that had me very curious about what he knew.
Anyways, all intoxicated on a few different substances that night he showed me some shit i never had realized before, and even now its hard to describe because i barely understand how this knowledge can be used. He took me up to the stage, and basically showed my awkward self how to dance, like literally he started dancing and i saw this energy coming in from the air and sound around us and it went into him and directed his movements. I was absolutely dumbfounded, and just that small demonstration led to me being able to dance and flow with my body whereas prior to that i at most would tap my foot or sway my body back and forth. I was too self conscious, but its like he showed me this and it unlocked something in my mind, in my soul and suddenly i understood 10x as much as i ever did about music and rhythm. Then he showed me how the artiat on the stage directs the crowd energetically, and how some artists can really "move" a crowd when they know what theyre doing and importantly the music DID NOT matter, it was all about the artists energy and how well they could project it.
Im gonna return to this later, i just needed to get some initial thoughts down.
