I think they were going to the most popular clubs of the time (Limelight, Tunnel, etc.). I would love to party with these freaks! Minus the drugs of course.

Having watched actual footage of the real-life club kids, I think they were a rather boring crowd - save for maybe James St. James - made to seem interesting because of their elaborate costumes and whatnot. I suspect that was one of the reasons why did they consumed as many drugs as they did - it was the only way they could find each other appealing or even tolerable.

I know people now who wish they were around during those days and doing the club kid scene when it was in its heyday.

Some folks dig it, just like some idealize what they think the 70's & 60's were like and wish they could be transported back in time to those eras.

the nyc club scene used to be a genuine mix of all walks of life, it wasn't so segregated like it is now. the hippest clubs in the city right now require celebrity status, a giant chanel bag and a high limit credit card to finance the bottles and models.

I imagine it would be fun for a night, but to hang out with these guys all the time- ugh, no way. They are so selfish and immature and superficial- they are like a cautionary tale for teens- you can't party ALL the time cos this is how you will turn out!!

Actually it was people like this that helped make the NYC clubs during the 80's. A club that was just chock full of yuppies flaunting cash was not the place to see and be seen. Too drab, too boring, too normal for a decade that was defined by excess in everything.

As opposed to clubs now? Where everyone has to be dressed up and walks around with snooty attitudes? Back in the day was much more fun in clubs. Now it's a general snoozefest where everyone takes themselves way too seriously and clubs act like they're the second coming.

If I was born then I would have loved to be a club kid, I wouldn't go as far as some of the stupid outfits that they wear on this but I think it would have been fun!
