Recently, I wrote about the importance of celebrating everything. In the post, I referenced Andrew W.K., who is a singer you’ll often see wearing all white and talking about partying. For years, there has been a large controversy over whether or not he is a real person. The theories are vast, ranging from him being brainwashed by the Illuminati to just a fabricated actor filling a role. He’s actually confessed to the fact that “Andrew W.K.” is a made-up persona, and you’re welcome to read more about the theories surrounding the whole thing and come to your own conclusion, but I’m writing about it today to say that I believe in him.
I believe in his message, his mission. Whether the ideas are his, whether he believes the things he says, and whether he will always be Andrew W.K. are irrelevant to me. I just don’t care. What I care about is partying. I firmly believe that life is a party. It’s the longest party we’ll ever go to, but it’s still way too short. I refuse to waste my time worrying about what other people think, and that includes the theories that surround the legitimacy of this long-haired rock star. All I need to worry about is how to live, and I know how I want to live. I want to party.
Here are 25 party tips that I hope you’ll enjoy.
