!! OMG, the last days of disco: A beautiful look at Italy’s now abandoned and once-thriving disco clubs !!

Photographer Antonio La Grotta has documented some of the beautiful ruins of the hey-day of Italy’s once vibrant disco club scene. Via Slate:

Through the 1980s and some of the 1990s, giant discotheques on the outskirts of Italian cities were at the center of the nightlife scene. Inspired by an economic boom, partiers frequented spaces designed to celebrate opulence and splendor, built, as Antonio La Grotta described them, “large enough to contain the dreams of success, money, and fun of thousands of people.”
Eventually, tastes changed. In the late 1990s, La Grotta said, smaller bars and clubs opened in the city with live concerts and DJs, drawing revelers away from the large discotheques, rendering them “cement whales” housing “echo and melancholy.”

!! OMG, Balearic bummer! Ibiza ravers are being sold BATH SALTS !!

The Vengaboys better seriously check who they let sell to them on their Vengabus when they go to Ibiza this summer — because there has been a huge rise in ravers on club island being sold the BATH SALTS!
Yes, Bath Salts, AKA “Florida’s favourite drug” which gives you the munchies for the side of someone’s face flesh before you rip it off with your bare teeth whilst standing on the side of the highway someplace with no memory of doing any of it afterward.

Various Spanish and English news reports say that the chemical is causing severe health problems among users on the White Isle.
A nurse based in San Antonio told Diario De Ibiza that patients had to be restrained in their beds once admitted to hospital after taking the drug. She also said that it took up to eight police officers to hold down one man, who also bit one officer’s hand.
Too much MDPV can induce violent behaviour, paranoia and panic attacks. In other words, it can make you go pretty crazy, which is what seems to have been happening to some ravers who have taken it in Ibiza over the last week or so.

This is some proper DEAD ISLAND for Xbox type shit. If you’re headed to the Balearics, make sure you know what you’re buying before you go ballistic!
