How Old Is It Too Old To Be a ‘Juggalo’?
There is a music fan base that I have never been able to relate too, and that would be the followers of the Insane Clown Posse. For those of you who don't know, they are called "Juggalo's" and follow the band everywhere, and do so for most of their lives.
This morning, Free Beer & Hot Wings were talking about a documentary called American Juggalo, which talks to the dedicated fans of The Insane Clown Posse. They paint their faces, much like members of the KISS Army, but they just seem a bit creepier.
I have never really been a fan of ICP, so needless to say I am not a Juggalo. I knew people growing up that considered themselves Juggalo's but they eventually decided that enough was enough and it was time to pull away from it. But how old is too old to continue being a Juggalo? I would say that once you have a family it's time to hang up the clown shoes. At that point you have other things you should be focused on anyway.
Now I'm not just ragging on Juggalo's, "Dead Head's" are the same way. Once you reach a certain point in your life, you can be a fan, but a super fan as a 40 year old is just a bit odd. Check out the 23 minute short documentary below, but be warned it is very NOT SAFE FOR WORK.
