A group called Respect The Rocks has started a petition on Change.org and is calling out the residents of Morrison, CO for being classist weenies and having a deep, ugly-faced bias towards the EDM genre (some of those are our words).
Online petitions are basically adult versions of chain letters and rely fully on the notion that if a particular subject chooses not to sign and pass it on, the wrath of the public will henceforth strike down upon thee and, without fail, the individual will be ostracized from normalcy. Death, it seems, is the best way to avoid them altogether.
There are, however, some online petitions that actually do work like they’re supposed to and whether or not anyone sees them as legally valid, they can at least open up dialogue about frustrating dilemmas. A group called Respect The Rocks has started such a thread on Change.org and is attempting to overturn even stricter noise restrictions placed on Red Rocks earlier this month. They’re calling out the residents of Morrison, CO for being classist weenies and having a deep, ugly-faced bias towards the EDM genre (some of those are our words).
The petition reads in part: “We, Respect The Rocks, ask the city of Morrison, Colorado, to remove noise restrictions on Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater, as they hamper the musical experience of all concertgoers at the venue, and unfairly target Electronic Dance Music Events”
As of press time the petition has amassed over 14,000 supporters in only 6 days (Red Rocks holds a little over 9,400 people for comparison), and shows no sign of slowing. It’s not entirely out of reach for the petition to bring about some sort of change, but it sounds like the residents of the almost-mountain town have their minds solidified on the endeavor.
Now that you’ve read this article you need to pass it on to 13 people before midnight or you will never kiss a boy/girl again for the rest of your lives until death!
