These two videos of him are worth checking out as well if you're interested.
And good luck at the occupation this weekend. I hope your experience will be as refreshing as mine has been.
Also, the way he became upset over the ugly oxygen monitor while in the hospital is absolutely insane.
I really don't know how or if they'll make it. The winters here are just too long and harsh. The marches on the weekends are growing every week though, and with no foreseeable end to the movement, that might have to do for the winter.
You could also check to see if there are any events or occupiers in your area. I've been marching with Occupy Denver every weekend, and while it certainly isn't as big or high profile as some others, it does have everyone around town talking about it. The media would like to frame the protesters as lazy hippies, but it becomes more difficult to convince people when they've seen first-hand that they are actually from all segments of society.
A more accessible example might be Don Caballero [http://youtu.be/UaQwOAFCXo8].
What I don't completely understand yet is just, WHY? I mean, there are a lot of bands that have extremely die hard followings, but none of them morph into this. As most participants seem to be of modest financial backgrounds, does this juggalo brotherhood serve as some kind of social safety net? Am I looking too far into this?
Sorry for the ramble, this video just left me with a confusing mix of emotions.
Here [http://www.princeton.edu/~pager/race_at_work.pdf] is a PDF that focuses on the racial issues of the NYC job market for released inmates. While it is mostly about the difference between white and black/Hispanic job applicants, the methodology of the study is particularly revealing of a problem that many seem to think is nonexistent.
