My point is a really shitty advertisement that seems to excite some people.
It may be naive to read the "confession" part too literally, but there's enough potential for exposing private life, isn't there? Anyway, if it helps make people happier, there you go.
What is a "straight themed night" supposed to be? I've never seen an advertisement for a heterosexually focused event, and if there was, it would be pretty discriminating towards homosexuals, don't you think? So how does it work here, the other way around?
It's not about the music, I can listen to good music at home. It's about the PLACE. I had the impression White Rabbit didn't really need any "theme". The name of who spins there was quite enough in the past. That was when I was paying 70rmb to get in and 50rmb
for a drink. But I tell you what, it was damn worth it. It was essential: music and the people who shared their taste for it. Period.
Anyway, I hope lots of people will have fun with their Gay Church night.
I must also say that what bothers me is the self' satisfactory way in which some people need to dangle their (supposed...) sexuality in front of everybody in this forum. Transgression is in facts, not in a WLIBJ forum, but for some people the ego depends on
a post (too), apparently. Again, if they feel better...please go on about threesomes etc. if you like. I bet the event won't be attended by anyone in this forum, but it's nasty to talk about it anyway, so enjoy.
I don't want to start a discussion about advertising strategies, but the fact
that there's no causal relationship between the elements you mention, Pete, elements that are supposed to attract people, is exactly what makes this advertising bad. That's everything what a theme night would be about: consistency about something. (for ex.
have a gay dj spinning, with gay themed photography for Visuals, whatever, it's not my club). This is just: "Hey gays, if you come, you will find more gays (which is ok, but aren't we all past that?)...and it's White Rabbit. So 120bpm music. And drinks are
Anyway, I wish everybody have fun and I hope White Rabbit 3.0 won't open for a long time. :)
