THE BURNOUT RAVER
to spot 'em: Shoes are a
nondescript color of "blah", they haven't washed their
hair for a month, in fact they haven't washed their clothes or
bodies in a while either.
Where to find 'em: At every rave, clubs on weekdays, and cafes that play techno in the afternoon. In the day, sleeping among waterbottles, fliers and miscellaneous mess.

Cons: Never have any money except for raves and "candy". Keep borrowing from you for important things such as food, rent and cigarettes.
to spot 'em: One shoulder is
lower than the other. They have bad posture from bending over
their decks. They always have an entourage surrounding
them-friends, managers, groupies, dj hoes, all with their gear.
Where to find 'em: Behind the decks or hanging out with other DJ's. Usually not dancing.
Characteristics: Either ultra arrogant or really cool. There is never an in-between.
Pros: We need 'em. If they're good they make you ecstatic, your life depends on 'em. When they are staring out, they give you tapes and play at your parties for free.
Cons: When they're not good, Your life feels like it's over. If they're your friends, you never see them, cause they are either playing or practicing. They don't go to raves unless they are playing.

Sample monologue: "Well, so I was there in this cafe, and I was having Sunday lunch with the promoters, yeah, and then Carl Cox comes over and sits down. Man that was the bomb! You know him? Good, he is the man!! Funny thing was there was this guy from Moonshine records, you know trying to sign my friend onto the label. You know Moonshine, right"?
Pros: They introduce you to people you might actually care to meet.
Cons: That is if you're cool enough in the first place to deserve to be spoken to.
to spot 'em: Usually yells
something subtle like "EEEEEEEE" or grabs you and says
"I like your jacket, wanna buy some E"? Usually stands
alone and sober.
Where to find 'em: Near the doors at parties, in parking lots.

Cons: When you are really high, they keep asking you "Are you sure"? I can give you 5 and take $2 off, cause you might be so messed up that you buy them anyway. If they're your friend you never know if you want to give them a ride or not, due to the possession laws.
