It is a little known fact that I come from a small-ish town in Pennsylvania known as Lancaster. If you’ve ever heard of Lancaster, you’ve probably heard of it for one reason: the Amish.
I could go on and on about the Amish, but I’ll keep it brief for you city-folk. The Amish are a group of individuals that live simple Christian lives … really simple. They are mostly a farming people, who sell their crops and woodwork for a living (they build some good shit). It is strictly against their religious rules to be “connected” to the outside world, so they do not use any electricity or any form of telecommunication.
Anyway, there comes a time in every Amish boy or girl’s life called “rumspringa“. During rumspringa, Amish teens are allowed to venture out into the outside world and experience a “normal” life. This usually consists of doing things that are conventionally forbidden: drinking, smoking, doing drugs, and, yes, listening to music.
Why do I bring this up?
Because, being the Lancastrian that I am, all I could think of when I saw G-Dragon‘s teaser for Big Bang‘s “Monster“:
Sorry G-man, the Amish don’t allow gays in their community.
