Vancouver Would Be Cooler If It Had ‘Rage Rooms’ For Venting Stress & Angst

The point of VWBCI is to open local minds to outside practices, concepts, and ideas that might stand to improve our greater civic situation in a parallel universe where coolness was valued more than practicality and funds spent on public works of art were raised by way of a special NIMBY tax levied against rich, self-absorbed assholes.

(via) Let’s say you get home today (from one of your two jobs) to discover a note from your landlord saying he’s going to raise your rent by $500 a month. Why? Because he can. You acquiesced to his demand that you tick the “fixed term tenancy” box on the lease agreement when you beat out a dozen other applicants for the apartment. You’re screwed. And your little dog too. More than just feeling powerless and at your wit’s end, you’re pissed as fuck. But how does one appropriately vent one’s frustrations in Vancouver? Yoga or the gym won’t cut it in this situation, and neither will drugs or booze. Breaking shit in an apoplectic rage might bleed out the fury, but violent destruction is likely to land you in prison. That’s why we’re interested in Moscow’s so-called “Rage Rooms”. The Al Jazeera video above and the Instagram short below show Muscovites going apeshit at a place called Debosh, a rentable room that supplies guests with sledgehammers and all manner of breakables from furniture to appliances. One of these businesses won’t be enough to alleviate the pent-up stress and angst here. Perhaps a dozen?
