Jungle Feelings: The Weird Faces Special – Extended Mix
Ravers are effortlessly good-looking because of their glowing I-have-danced-all-day-in-the-sun skin, their beaming eyes and their positive attitude towards life.
But not in a vain way.
Vanity (or pride, if you want) is one of the 7 deadly sins, as anyone who has seen David Fincher’s “Se7en” from 1995 might remember. Or read Dante’s The Divine Comedy for more gory details on the deepest level of Purgatory.
So: Vanity = deadly sin. Ravers know this. Why do you think there are no mirrors in Berghain? And does anyone spend time checking their appearance at the Fusion Festival? OF COURSE NOT. Everyone’s too busy enjoying themselves.
Let’s celebrate this un-vanity with a Weird Faces Special – Extended Mix.
Maximum big-ups to the Ohoi! crew, deliverers of lots and lots of Weird Faces moments. This is Tim Driver, pulling an anniversary face at Ohoi!’s 2 year birthday celebration.
No, Sofus the Amazing Shapeshifter is not just a pretty face. He can be totally not vain if he wants to. This is at the opening of Docken in 2007, followed by the Distortion Final Party.
Jens pulls a weird face in a twisted Titanic moment at Ohoi!’s 2 year birthday celebration on a boat.
Vitus, a Master of Discreetly Weird Faces When Cameras Are Out pulls another one at DNBZone on Nadsat, 2005.
A truly magic moment starring PZ on the dancefloor. Yes, we’re back at Ohoi!’s 2 year’s birthday party on the boat. Guest stars: Dollar$, Lau and Chriszka the Time Traveller.
Muad’Dib and Bateman pull a double ‘too much confetti’ face at the Distortion Final Party (well, afterparty) 2006. Yes, on a boat again. What a maritime raver kingdom we are.
Enough sun and confetti. Let’s go below deck again. 2000F pulls a mean pirate face behind the decks at Ohoi!s 2 year birthday bash.
Three very weird faces, but Svingsen wins.
Mike Sheridan flashes a magic rubber face at the opening of Docken (which was followed by the Distortion Final Party) – 2007.
Lewis introduces a truly weird face on the dancefloor in the belly of a boat.
Lori pulls a threatening face on the dancefloor at Nadsat. Nothing disturbs the peaceful zen bubble of Advocatorex here, though. We’re at the Crystallizer party at Nadsat, 2006.
It will take you a moment to process just how much Weird Face is represented in this picture. Thanks to Laura for the pic. Caught at Nadsat.
Pure mastery by Vitus and Asger.
Okay, maybe this face wins. This is Culture Box’ 3-year’s birthday celebration 2008.
