"Oontz oontz oontz" is the sound made when they slide their walkers on the floor if they don't have tennis balls on the feet.

asciibaron: considering raves were a thing 30 years ago... old people would make sense.


I remember my daughter talking about a guy that was constantly at the raves she and her friends were hitting. We're talking a social security (at the time) collecting guy who was hitting up raves. According to a couple of her classmates he'd also go to regular dance clubs. Never really said much to anyone unless they came up to him, he didn't pay most people any attention other than to make sure he didn't dance into them at all. He would spend a few hours dancing and then head home (apparently) alone.

Apparently, no joke, the old white guy had some serious dance moves. He could mimic just about anything, and put it together with other things in a smooth manner. Got quite a following from the local ravers at being able to mirror people's moves almost perfectly while dancing.

Yeah, I remember when he made that comment, but house is more boots n pants and techno is more oonce.  Where does the dugachek come in?  That seems more drum n bass to me.

Subby and the headline of TFA are incorrect.

Some idiot who called the police made the mistake, the police simply responded to a call as they are supposed to.

This.

Also, I'm all for reporting suspicious behavior when you see something, but it seems like people are calling the police over some pretty stupid stuff these days. Who sees a line of people outside a building in the middle of the day and immediately thinks of a rave?
 
2021-01-25 4:05:56 PM  
I should have googled harder.

While lads mags and tabs all cite each other, there were a couple of real, local outlets reporting on it.

Hopefully by then they'll have raves in the nursing home. I heard part of a story recently about a home for people with dementia that has a pub that's a hit with the residents. Today a pub, tomorrow... oontz, oontz, oontz!
