<kitten> Did I give you my Vanilla Ice report yet?
<bda> No, you didn't.
<kitten> Christ.
<kitten> First, the guy's a dick. :)
<kitten> Which, I know, duh.
<kitten> But he kept everyone waiting for two hours.
<kitten> And then did, like, five songs.
<kitten> But the venue.
<kitten> It was..
<kitten> It was called Cowboys.
<kitten> Huge club, middle of fucking nowhere in north Georgia.
<kitten> They may as well have called this place Crackertown.
<kitten> Or Honkeyville.
<kitten> There was not one black guy there. Not one Asian, not a single Hispanic dude.
<kitten> It was absolutely terrifying.
<kitten> And the music.
<kitten> My god.
<kitten> And the honkeys all knew the songs, and they all danced *in sync*.
<kitten> You know how I'd joke about the tourists that would show up from the salsa club or rock club next door, and come into the goth club, and act utterly petrified at the goings-on?
<kitten> I know what they felt like now.
<kitten> You could go to a Klan rally and not feel this fucking white.
