Joe Rogan goes Renaissance

First couple paragraphs from Joe Rogan's blog:

Quote:
Today I went to a Renaissance fair for the very first time. I had seen them in movies, like in the hilarious “Role Models” but I had never actually personally witnessed the majesty that is a giant, fenced off area with thousands of dorks pretending that it’s 500 years ago.
Now, I want to be clear that when I say “dorks” in no way do I use that word with a negative connotation. Some of the finest people I’ve ever met in my life were dorks. I certainly have been guilty many times of being a dork myself, and I personally think it’s an honorable distinction. It’s far better to be true to yourself and be a dork than it is to be wishing you had the balls to be one.

I’ve done many dork-worthy things in my day, like for instance I was once in an online “Quake” clan where we would not only play online, but we would meet up from all around the country, hook all of our computers up and play each other in the same room and still refer to each other as our online screen names.
For real. That shit’s pretty ******* dorky.
If you were in denial I guess you could try to argue about video game addicts being dorks. You could point out how cool the games look, or how exciting they are to play, but the bottom line is that if you’re holed up in a room with a bunch of other dudes holding in a wicked mountain dew piss and screaming out in excitement because “CraZe” just gunned down “ReSDog” you’re a ******* dork.
It ain’t a bad thing, but it is what it is.

This Renaissance fair shit however, makes THAT kind of dorky just step aside and bow down with amazement. It’s so ridiculous that it’s absolutely magnificent.
It is a public orgy of group fantasy. A strange, and seemingly unlikely event where thousands of people agreed to gather together to play make-believe for weeks at a time. And they all even agreed on the time period.
One of the few times I fully condone getting extremely baked and going out in public for a few hours.

Yeah but its all good because you can pick up nerdy chicks in corsets, carrying swords and mugs of ale!


Thanks to Toxic for the Awesome Sig!

Even if the whole world is against you, one thing will never let you down. That thing is beer.

Yeah, but hopefully they bathe, brush their teeth, and shave their legs and arm pits!

Man you'd be surprised.. Luckily you can smell the funky ones from afar. Most of the time its them dirty psuedo-hippies so they stand out too. Bunch of lame white kids with poor hygiene and dumb looking dreads...
