So basically, if I want to disguise myself among Juggalos, all I need to do is get some clown-esque facepaint and talk as basely as possible?

Outside of anthropological reasons, I am terrified of the situation arising which would require you to have an accurate answer to this question.

Wow. They booked ICP and expected it to NOT devolve into a violent burning rapefest?

I also just noticed that the "GLENN BECK'S DOPE-ASS NEWSOCAUST" font is the exact same as that on the ICP "BANG POW BOOM" sampler sitting next to my computer.

Yeah, fuck lyle lovette, whoever the fuck that is.


No really, who the fuck is he?

I just googled him, and he's some old ass country guy that was married to julia roberts, fuck him.

Yeah, fuck him.


Wow.

I can't tell whether ICP is earnestly, relentlessly goofing on everything or seriously fucked up or what. Keep in mind that I thought Korn was totally taking the piss when I accidentally saw them with Rev. Horton Heat-- when I see acts like this I always assume it's just a big goof.

I scarcely even heard of ICP before I went on Metafilter. (Blame my east coast elitist upbringing.) Is this place just a hangout for closet juggalos? Because if so, I'm sorry for polluting this Dark Circus with my Gaga love.

I think our day and age is Andy Warhol's wet dream. Thanks to both niche communities and the ever-presence of the Internet everyone can stumble into momentary fame and it is either for doing "nothing" (LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE), or for doing something the authenticity of which is completely incomprehensible and lost on the fans and critics alike.

Are ICP taking the piss? Was KISS? Are Vampire Weekend? Were the Ramones? Is Lady Gaga? How about Brokencyde? What determines this? The insufferability of their fans or their ability to be in on the joke with a straight face? The quality of the music or the bathing in the glory of the lack thereof?

...we'll be right back and shit.

Aren't those "hatchets" in the graphic supposed to be meat cleavers? (JUGGALOS: That's the human word for "hatchet")

As much as I love the Slap Chop video, it was somewhat ruined for me by the fact that Vince was arrested in Miami Beach for felony battery of a 26-year-old prostitute.

That may not sound so bad, but then you see what he did: here and (NSFW, nudity) here.

I don't know about you, but for me that kinda sucks the funny out of that video.

Actually, I enjoy them - it's hard to get hold of nihilist satire these days. It's a guilty pleasure, at least when I'm in the right mindset.

I'm appalled that folks believe ICP espouses a consistent ethical and moral framework from which to base a lifestyle, though - it's like watching Gallagher and believing that you must then find a mallet with which to smash all of your problems away.

A few years ago, I was all WTF ICP? I mean...seriously.

Then Metafilter showed me that the "...seriously" was to be taken off. It's just "WTF ICP". I suppose the "Fuck Yeah" at the end isn't really optional, like the anchovy on a Caesar salad.

Another thing...the news analysis was actually - I mean really, and truly - more succinct and to the point than you get on any news show. "They don't want Obama getting up in their shit" really does sum up the idea behind Republican obstreperousness in a better way than anyone has expressed before.

From the Juggalo entry on Wikipedia:

Some students are prohibited from wearing Insane Clown Posse paraphernalia while at school. In Waterbury, Connecticut, several high school students were sent home for wearing Psychopathic Records clothing. The following week, they were given approval to continue wearing the clothing, stipulating that juggalos work to ease tensions with other students.

My bolding above -- aww! juggalos defusing tensions and bringing people together. What we need, perhaps, is a Juggalo envoy to the middle east.

A school where the people in charge actually come to conclude that it is the behavior of people that is causing problems and not a result of the clothing they are wearing??! Someone get me a fainting couch! This must be an Onion article!

Also i feel safe admitting that i was into ICP when I was like 14 and it was just me and one other person at my school who liked them. For "dress as your favorite band" day (spirit week or some crap) we more or less went on the honor system that we would do the face paint (being that we didn't see each other until the very end of the day and both were very concerned that the other wouldn't do the make-up). The whole day everyone asked us if we were kiss.

The next year everyone else got in to them, but especially really trashy people, and all of a sudden it was like that mosquito ringtone, i just couldn't hear them anymore. I've been off the "dead body wagon" for about 11 years now, and i have to say it all seems goofy to me. People talking about their little alternate reality as real. Sometimes i still ask if their fan base was always white trash and i just couldn't see it,if the tide switched or (worst case) i was white trash and somehow overcame it.
