Have you wondered why Moby is pictured with the space helmet in all his recent publicity shots? Have you wondered why Paul Oakenfold hasn't answered your fan mail? It's because neither of them are real!
They are both entirely fabricated constructs of the Media Industrial Complex, built specifically to take your minds off of how shallow your existances really are, and they are both performing LIVE outside of Pop's, (Sauget, IL. (STL) on July 12th 2002.
You can get your tickets at ticketmaster, or via phone at 314.421.4400.
Don't miss this show! If you do, you could be earmarked for alien abduction, and you don't want that!

man, i haven't been to a rave in a while. the last one i've been to in illinois was live on the decks at the rosemont convention center. i think they named it something else, but it was formerlly known as the rosemont convention center. the venue is probably the best place to hold a rave. good air circulation, clean bathrooms, GREAT LIGHTING AND SOUND.

My boyfriend and his people just threw a party called "pride" at the Rainbow Roller Rink in Chicago on June 29th. The party promoted house music with acts like Dajea, Gene Hunt, Robert Armani & some others, it was a descent party but the turnout wasn't big. The fact seems to be that the scene in the inner city just does'nt really exsist anymore, atleast not like it used to. 5 to 10 years ago there was alot going on, but it just slowly dissapeared. These days there are seldon parties in city limits, most of them are in the suburbs or in Indiana. There is mostly just club stuff, if you go to Gramaphone records or Untitled or EQ in chicago you can pick up flyers and youll see whats up. Throwing raves in the city of Chicago is against the law and you can get fined alot of money if you are caught, it's risky thing to invest money in--it sucks.

I just want to make a comment about how the rave scene died down. I remember back in the day when you didn't even know where the rave was going to be held!? You had to call a number and go to a check point to get directions from there (and it might not even be in the same city)Those were the good ole times! Cavalini's...Route 66... and Dalton Expo center!? Member those dayz!??? I was involved w/ Future Forces and down w/ Shadefree. Dj 3D was our man main including Jerry Sanchez (my old roommate) We threw tons of parties towards the end of the 90's. We threw Candyland 3, Powerhouse (Blackhole), Y2K, Sky's the Limit and so on... Those were my best times. I remember hangin out with my friends from Iowa...(brad and collin...and Molly (she's HOT)even Nikki (shady as hell) She brought me from Milwaukee to Davenport Iowa to hang out w/ her and she dissed me for some dude w/ glass... sorry Nikki...your lose) Big SHOUT OUTS to Brad n' them. I hope you read this some day! Ne ways... the scene just died down because it was just about that time. It was slowly changing from 94' until 2001 (when I stopped "ravin") People grow up and new generations are started! We just know how it used to be and thats all we have is our good memories (unless you took pictures like me...always fun to look back at those) If anyone would like to see some old ass pictures...let me know. I'll do what I can to get them to you! I also want to mention to my friend Cheral that I loved spending time with you at those parties. You were the coolest chick in the scene! I just remeber every dude wanted to "kick it" with you like I was. I don't know why you chose me as your buddy but I had a blast! (remember when you crashed to Cavalier into that pole on the way to the after party...oops) The ambulance had to come get cha and everything... I hope I might have sparked some old memories.
Mike "Abstrakt" Future Forces and Nympho Pro.
