Andrew W.K. was invited, then uninvited, to be "a [cultural] ambassador" to the Bahrain (a small island-archipelago next to Saudi Arabia) cultural exchange. He seemed pretty stoked about it, as displayed by the image above, and pretty bummed when his trip got canceled, tweeting: "I'm just blown away. After a year of planning, the US State Dept. just canceled my Middle East trip because I'm too party."
I mean like, I don't really know how to feel about any of this business. Andrew W.K. made his career off of basically telling you to blow Adderall and dance till your endocrine system mutinies against you. And like as much as it would be totally rad if he brought the party to the middle east, I'm really not sure it's the best idea right now. They might not have taken it as well as he would have hoped. Pre sure that's sort of how our government felt too, since Noel Clay (the spokesperson for a little racket called the State Dept.) said the invite was "inappropriate" and "a mistake." W.K. seems to have kept his chin up/bloody though, recently tweeting: "What doesn't kill us makes us party." Party party party.
In all honesty I'd like to know how you dudes/chicks balance yourselves on this moral seesaw made of Ritalin dust and Four Lokos. You can look me up on Facebook and we can discuss. I'm serious. My name is Dominick Knowles. I'm the one eating pizza in my profile picture. Honest. I want to connect with a real human being about this issue. I care. I really do. We can even party together. Maybe.
But if you're uncomfortable w/ that, here's Andrew W.K.'s "Party Hard." It's kinda party.
