It’s Electric Daisy Carnival 2014 (EDC) week in Vegas. My wife Lissy and I are going to be attending it for the first time. Last year we did a Podcast about EDC (Episode 4) with some friends that came from Reno about the whole experience. They convinced us to go this year with them so we’ve been looking forward to it for months now. On this episode my wife FORCED me to help her make some Kandi PLUR bracelets while we did the Podcast. Kandi PLUR Bracelets are exchanged with other EDC attendees it’s like a “ritual".
PLUR stands for Peace Love Unity Respect. Originating from early online discussions about rave culture its usage has been common since the early 1990s. I really like the sound of PLUR. This whole EDM (Electric Dance Music) movement almost seems cultish when you look at it from outside (like all cults). Humans always seem to wanna be associated to a group, always want to belong somewhere. As long as it’s spreading Peace Love Unity and Respect I’m all for it. Enjoy the show friends! Oh yeah and I gave out some shout outs, let me know if you want one and I’ll give you one on the next show!
