Much ado about nothing; you see a lot of different things at a rave.

What's the point of a rave?
 
2013-02-10 08:07:01 AM
I think it's worse that she named her kid after a shiatty Trarantino character
 
2013-02-10 08:07:32 AM
this is news? I took my daughter to raves when she was a baby and I've seen other people do it too.

Damn straight. That right there is Crunksutawney Phil. When he drops the bass, you don't get up again.

1. Not a rave.

2. It was a performance featuring her daughter.

3. This updated news story came from a news story The Sun published in which they presented themselves as any sort of moral authority whatsoever.

Coffin, meet nail.

Obviously a music lover, maybe she named him after the most famous Django:

I think a rave is considered over when a 41 year old mother shows up.

Almost any real rave is 50%+ over 40s and 50s. They usually look much like she does, leathery and pickled, from the combination of taking e every night since 1991 and the hot Ibiza sun.
 
2013-02-10 08:28:48 AM
Those hearing protectors work just fine. You just have to train a baby to wear them which can take a while. BFD.
 
2013-02-10 08:34:11 AM
Maybe she was looking for the father.

That's what she should have named the kid.

In a loud rave environment with a lot of bass and high treble, isn't a lot of the sound entering your ears through bone vibration, not the ear canal directly?

"She was pictured holding the child as she listened to daughter Kerry, 23, perform with her band at 10pm last Saturday."

The horror.

I don't know. The loudest thing I ever took my kids to was a Rammstein concert. Are raves louder than German industrial metal?

People wouldn't be outraged if it was the symphony.  What's the difference?

And if you're saying "People don't get farked up at the symphony," I think you haven't seen all the pickled society alcoholics hitting the bar at intermission.

Why is she a "little old"? Give that raves started in the early 80s, its probably something she started doing in her 20s and still enjoys.

No-one's outraged, it's just the Sun scandal-churning for a hit.

She was watching her daughter perform at 10pm and had industrial ear-protectors on the baby. It's not like she was throwing shapes at 5am muntted off her nut while the baby was in a Tesco plastic bag in the cloakroom.

All of the raves I've ever gone to, never saw one person over probably the age of 30...although in the UK their "raves" are more like sanctioned events at late night clubs with dance music/DJs, than warehouse call a number the day of the event type of "raves"

I brought my 8-12 month old to numerous college football and basketball games in the student section (he had ear protectors) which is every bit as loud as a rave
 
2013-02-10 09:10:54 AM
I'm torn between outrage and letting her ruin her kid if she wants. I guess I'm jaded but I've just seen too many bad parents to keep caring anymore. She was let into the place with the kid, so why isn't anyone outraged at the doorman or whoever that let her in?
 
2013-02-10 09:17:21 AM
Give her a break, at least she didn't murder her child and then stuff it in the boot of her car so that she could keep partying. Besides, too many parents would have just left the kid in front of the TV to do all the parenting. By taking the kid to the rave the brat gets socialized and starts learning how to keep it real and be fly.
Skill that it will need later in life.
 
2013-02-10 09:18:32 AM
41 with a 4 month old is worse.
 
2013-02-10 09:30:06 AM
And I would have had nothing to do with her when she was 21 toting around a baby. Seriously lady, all that p.l.u.r shiat aside, leave the kid with the sitter for the night to get your freak on....or maybe you just serve as a warning not to take so much ecstasy and bang raver chicks.

If the birth of the kid hadn't coincided with the hype of movie coming out, I'd give you that. Really I would.
But do you really think someone stupid enough to take their four month old to a rave is going to know who he is?

then she can go home and play quarters with friends to get drunk.

I think she's an awesome mum. Not seeing the issue, other than people should mind their own shiat.

Bone vibration

Don't go all grammar natzi but I found a typo. Obviously the pictured woman is the 61 year old grandmother of the baby.

You can't do that. It's against the rules.

They reclassified the music and gave some different name.

You sound old.

We don't know much about the situation other than e mother really wanted to see her older daughter play live, plus its not clear to me she did anything wrong.  The term "rave" has been diluted so much it could mean anything from drugged debauchery to simply a bunch of people standing around in a warehouse listening to music.  At that age (of the child) many parents, myself included, take babies nearly everywhere.  They'll sleep through anything, they like being held; people should mind their own business.

I think the furor would be over the baby *wearing* the earphones at a symphony. Take them off and expose the hkid to some damn culture!
 
2013-02-10 11:11:57 AM
Saw an idiot mother holding an infant against her shoulder at a show last year and I just about went over and took the poor thing from her. She probably thought the child was "enjoying" the music.

Instead it was a just a light/sound cacophony and likely damaging its delicate ear mechanism. Not to mention overwhelming a brain that should be learning simple, large visual/auditory things at that point. (They can't see much more than a blur, and certainly can't appreciate a Todd Rundgren guitar solo - which was AWESOME)

It's more idiocracy. People too wrapped up in their own limited thoughts, unable to understand what's really going on around them, hurting others. Not much different from taking the blue pill in real life.

Listening to the sounds wholly or predominantly characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive beats, duh

If the baby slept through the entire thing the noise protectors obviously worked.

Nothing to see here.
