I swear they are fire hazards!

clubbingFirst off, I apologise for the lack of updates on this blog.  I have a really bad trait. Its called laziness.  But I assure you I am trying to change.

As I’m writing this, I’m sitting at a bus stop at one thirty in the morning, having just left Zouk.  An extremely crowded and somewhat rowdy Zouk.  And I am reminded once again why I detest clubbing.

I cannot, for the life of me, see the allure of having hundreds of other bodies pressing against you, being stepped on, shoved around, and squashed tighter than a can of sardines in a room that has far exceeded its capacity, and all the while heavy pulsating music is blaring so loudly in the background you can’t hear anyone else!

You’re squeezed so tight you can’t move, let alone dance! (I’m sorry but swaying your body a few inches to the sides and up and down does not count as dancing.) Oh and did I mention that the floor is almost ALWAYS wet and slippery because drinks keep getting spilled?

It boggles my mind how so many people actually enjoy undergoing the kind of experience I just described.  They would pay to spend hours in an environment like this; I would pay to get OUT!

Now this doesn’t mean I never go to clubs.  In fact, before Zouk, we were at Union Square at Amara Hotel.  And I had a pretty great time there. I’m a salsera (albeit a rather lousy one), and I hang out at Union to dance.  And dance we do!  I love dancing, and I get satisfaction from it, but going to a mainstream club and ‘clubbing’, feels like an utter waste of time and money.  There are so many things I could do with my time, like completing Modern Warfare 2, or mastering Taylor Swift on Expert Difficulty on Band Hero.

So to all the clubbers out there, I guess my question would be, what kind of fulfillment does clubbing bring?  What’s in it for you?

Because all I get is claustrophobia, a sore throat, and a shit load of discomfort.

PS. Another thought that came to me as I was squeezing my way through the mass of bodies at Phuture was, what happens if a fire suddenly breaks out?  I can totally envision the situation.  Mass panic, followed by a mad rush for the exits would probably result in more people being trampled to death than what the fires would cause.  Morbid much?  Perhaps, but you get my drift.  Isn’t there a law somewhere about the number of people you can have in a particular building and etc.?

PPS. While I have no love for clubs, I do enjoy a good bar.  In fact one of my favourites here would be Jazz@Southbridge.  :D

    That just makes it sound so geeky, AHAHAHAHA! But yesss to Experty Difficulty, wooh! You need to record yourself singing and playing at the same time.

    I’ve never been a big clubber, if I dance I dance, and it doesn’t have to be a party-type setting >_>

    I do enjoy me some bar crawling. Well actually, I “crawl” rather slow and spend a lot of time in the same place at once, but that’s because if I’m enjoying my time I don’t really feel the need to mix it up <_<

    that geeky line, sealed the deal.

    i’m a n00b still playing it on hard :(

    i think the last time i went clubbing was half a year (or more) back and it was mostly to try hook up friends with random chicks and watch the cannot-make-its try to make-it. if that made sense.
