Whats it all about etc.

Earthfreq 2009
Alright, I guess because this is the first post I should do some sort of introduction type thing yes?  I am a 23 year old guy living on the north coast of NSW near Byron Bay.  There is a pretty big psychadelic / electronic movie scene up here, and I get out to a doof (bush rave) 2 or 3 times a month.  I love the doof scene because what could be better than a couple of hundred people partying together for a couple of days in the middle of the beautiful Australian bush.  They attract a huge variety of people, and everyone is there for the same reason, to get loose and relax, so there is very rarely any aggression.  The drugs of choice tend to be LSD, psilocybin, and MDMA, as opposed to speed and coke in the city, and as a result the crowd is a lot more relaxed and friendly.  The parties usually go for a couple of nights, although there are some 1 night ones, so everyone has their own little camp set up with a fire in winter, and everyone is really welcoming and friendly.  Of course there are exceptions to this, but after living in Sydney and partying in the clubs there, I must say, I feel that there is a much nicer, friendlier vibe to the doofs which I love!  You often see people there with their dogs and kids, I remember one night meeting a 10 year old kid on the dance floor, dancing his little heart out.  It's awesome!

So this blog is going to be a variety of music, images, thoughts, experiences, and whatever else I want with the common theme of being related to the psytrance / dub-step / electronic scene in one way or another.

Ok, now some pics of doofs I've been to over the last few years to give an idea of what i'm talking about, if you haven't had the luck to go to one of these parties.
