Where in Missouri?  (off to Google Maps)

Lake of the Ozarks, not too far from the Lodge of the Four Seasons where my family goes in the summer each year.  Hope it's not this summer.. I wouldn't want an overlap.

Use something more selective.. the campground is on the edge of a touristy lakefront resort area.

Well Tech N9ne is like a good version of the horrorcore crap ICP does, so Misery makes sense as the location.

I blame Fark for introducing me to the Insane Clown Posse and Juggalos. I don't listen to their music. I just know who they are now. I had a patient a couple of weeks ago wearing an ICP hat. I asked the patient if he actually listens to ICP or just wears the hat. The patient was shocked (he's 16, I'm 34), and my assistant was perplexed I knew what the symbol meant.

I listened to ICP when I was 14-15.

ICP is been on the planet longer than that kid was.

Personally, I love Juggalos. Can't stand the music, but I find the people endearing. Like a dog so ugly it's cute. I've been trying to get a bunch of my lawyer friends together to head out to the Gathering one year to open a tent and just offer free legal advice as a way to do pro bono work. These people tend to have a lot of legal problems and are usually too poor to afford a lawyer for a consultation.

They are for the most part good kids...I've encountered quite a few. I actually really love the album The Great Milenko.

Really?  I'm 33 and I remember ICP and their annoying fans being around when I was in high school.  Maybe they weren't as numerous, but they were around.

It will be interesting to find see what happens at Juggapalooza without the "drug bridge."  I can't really imagine this happening without drugs and under age drinking.

Subby; they will always be the entire nation's problem.

People of Missouri, we've had our differences.  A lot of us regard you as a state of racist backwards rednecks who deserve what you get.  But not this.  We stand with you for this new horror that will soon be inflicted on you.

I'm just the opposite. I find the crowd (and ICP itself in the interviews I've read) to be pretty much brainless in human terms. But the music itself is a guilty pleasure. I wouldn't try to justify its existence on any rational/moral level, but I genuinely enjoy listening to it.

In before someone wanker posts a rambling paragraph about how poor Juggalos are misunderstood and unfairly maligned and how said wanker has a degree in chemical engineering and listens to ICP and won't you please open your mind you bigoted anti-Juggalo assholes.

How did the rap-rock clowns get the hardcore fans? People love Kelly Clarkson but I doubt they'd go out to the middle of Missouri and paint their faces for her. Why does ICP get such a dedicated army?

Haha! True true...I also genuinely enjoy the music. I like their whole "Dark Carnival" mythos. It's a great concept, groovable tunes, and wacky "krazy klown" thuggery - just fun! I don't take them seriously...

No matter what you might think of their "music" (hint:  it's crap), you got to admire their ability to work the audience and their fans.   What they lack in record sales and radio air play they make up in how dedicated their fans are and how willing their fans are to spend money in ways that directly profits ICP.

Buying concert tickets and clothing/swag straight from them/their online store makes them a lot more money than cd sales through stores or singles sold through Itunes.

Read an article on this last year.  For their popularity these guys make a very disproportionate income compared to other "musicians."

Farkers, as far as I can tell, tend to be educated and employed. Two characteristics that seem to be sorely lacking from the Juggalo population. At least in my encounters with them in the criminal justice system and on child dependency cases. Farkers seem to be to able to take care of themselves. I also don't know if I ran into any open Farkers while working for the public defender. Given many Farkers usual reactions in tattoo threads, I don't see many having the same hatchet-man style neck tattoo that the a fair number of Juggalos have. Farthers are harder to identify in that way. If we had a squirrel balls neck tattoo as a sign of Farking it would be easier.
So far though, none of my friends are takers on this idea.

THat's gold right there. Couldn't think of a more fitting place for a group that proclaims itself to be "hard" and "tough" and then wonders why they get investigated as a gang.

CSB Time

When I was in college 10 years ago, I went to an ICP show.  The crappy college radio station I worked at had some ICP in rotation, so they sent us some free tickets.  Since no one wanted the tickets when we did give-aways, we took them and went to the show.  It was an entertaining time.  I look at it the same way I view professional wrestling.  The members of ICP are playing characters and putting on a show.  People who take it serious (Both wrestling and ICP) might need to be kept on a short leash, but everyone else who gets the gimmick should be able to laugh.

I don't plan on ever going to a show again, but it was something I can say that I did.

End CSB

It's no more strange than the following that the Grateful Dead had...

The comparison to professional wrestling is a good one. I was in college in the late 90s and a couple buddies of mine were into ICP bigtime. They are intelligent, productive members of society. One is even a teacher.

It's the face paint,  Anonymity like that makes them easier to identify with and emulate.  Juggalos = Kiss Army = Not a coincidence.
