I like to roll every once in a while.

In fact, I'll even go so far to say I love a good roll with some good friends.

Surprisingly, glowstringing started and pretty much remains a sober activity for me. I've tried it while fucked up and it's just kind of frustrating. I use it just like I use the music I write - as a form of expression... and being anything other than sober prevents me from expressing what I need to express.

But I do love doing to raves and giving people who are rolling light shows. Melt faces. That sort of stuff.

When I was at a bassnectar concert in new york a few weeks ago, I had someone come up to me every 5 minutes asking if I had molly. Granted, I was wearing white UFO-style pants sitting on a comfy blanket at the back of the crowd with flowlights in my hands, glowbracelets on my arms, and glowsticks around my neck, but still, it got kind of cumbersome. I kept thinking people were going to come up and talk to me about poi or strike up an interesting conversation... but nope, all about the pills.

I don't personally ask everyone around me if they're rolling, but I understand why others do. When I roll, I tend to distrust everyone around me who isn't (unless I know them very well). The fact is, if you're on MDMA, all you care about is feeling good and making other people feel good. If you're not on MDMA, you can easily take advantage of people that are... and for that very reason, it's nice to have a heads up if you're on the same plane.

Well I think they ask because of any of the following reasons:

1. They are probably rolling themselves.

2. They are looking for something and wanna see if u can help out.

(and of course the shadier reasons)....

3. They want to take advantage of you while you are in a vulnerable state.

4. They are D.T.'s

.............but I find its typically newer people who ask that question because most people who have long term experience with rolling can tell immediately when someone is rolling. The signs and mannerisms are unmistakable.

I get asked this by basically every passing person. Problem with the scene where I live, is:
1. No one can control themselves
2. They don't appreciate events or music
3. They only go to raves in order to get super wasted

I'm not demonizing drug users, but in my area, it really is true. They only go to raves/parties in order to score different types of drugs, even unknown substances. However, I have gotten some interesting responses when I tell people I've been sober my entire life. My favorite one happens to be "Good for you man, I roll, but it's really not worth it."

My friend has this habit of totally freaking out and doing the butterfly (freehand) while screaming loudly until they leave. Weird, but it makes me laugh.
