Seriously?

January 29th, 2009 · 171 comments

Kait’s roommate in Providence, R.I. was already pissed that the animal house next door was throwing a party on a Tuesday night before a big exam, but it was the shitty pop-rock that really pushed her over the edge. And like so many other college-aged females, “over the edge” means…colored markers.

We love music too, but why so LOUD? Seriously...Sugar Ray?

Adds Kait: “It didn’t stop the noise, but we did get a [sadly undocumented] written response: “Come by if your [sic] fit and into doggie.”

    Hopefully it was not the Sugar Ray that sold out and went pop. If I remember correctly a few of their first albums were punk rock similar to the subhumans

    How disappointed Kait’s roommate was, after calling up her friends and asking, before holding the phone out to the offending music,”Who the shit is that?” to be told it was Sugar Ray. From the layout of the page you can see that Kait’s roommate was hoping that the music was from a one-name band.

      Yanni’s early shit was incredible. It wasn’t until he signed with K-Tel that it deviated into the commercially-driven banality that many people associate him with today.

      That said, there are legions of us who will be forever indebted to Yanni for the cutting edge artistry he brought to his craft.

      To me, Yanni IS the pan flute.

      As disappointed as I am about his later work, I’ve got to admit that the set of Ronco knives (that I received as a bonus for purchasing his second K-Tel effort) are still sharp enough to glide through an unripened tomato like a hot knife through butter.

      For the full Yanni experience, I recommend any of his first four cds, a portable cd player with a set of high quality head phones, a sleeping bag and a yurt. (You should also bring food, but nothing crunchy, as the chewing noises will interfere with those haunting magical melodies.)

      You might want to wait for warmer weather.

      One time is all it takes before you say, “Yogurt. Yurt. Yanni. Yeah!”

      P.S. Just out of curiosity, Ti O, I’m wondering which bootleg you have? (Some of them aren’t recorded very well, and I may be able to steer you in a more satisfying direction.)

      well I don’t know Ali G but Yanni is a Greek composer that could best be described as new age. He is John Tesh with better hair and more talent. Somehow he is quite popular and was able to play in the Taj Mahal and one of the first westerners to play in the forbidden city. He is best known, by men of a certain age, for being married to Linda Evans.

    My 13 y/o stepson asked me to pick him up last night, and told me he was at the corner of “Duane and Kirk” and I said “Kirk? Like Kirk Cameron?” – I got crickets.

      Here’s the thing (and I say this as someone who lived in RI): Rhode Islanders are a good 10-20 years behind on their music. Radio stations still, un-ironically, play “Sweet Dreams are Made of These.” The tracks from The Lion King that Elton John re-recorded are heard at roller rinks–where rollerblades are verboten. Dave Matthews Band is still leading the zeitgeist.

      That’s why they have the highest unemployment rates in the country right now.

      Well, I was 9 in 1997 when “Fly” came out and most of my peers and I listened to the radio/watched MTV, so yeah, it makes sense that they would know who Sugar Ray is (Or is it “are” since they’re multiple people?). What doesn’t make sense is that knowing full well who Sugar Ray is/are, they would still listen to them.

      (Heh, I remember getting Green Day’s album Dookie for my birthday when I was 6 and Smashing Pumpkin’s Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness when I was 7.)

      Y’know, I never watched Growing Pains, but at least I vaguely know who Kirk Cameron is. ;)

      There are Ali G/Borat fans who listen to Sugar Ray loud? Srsly? WTF? It tends to be the ladies who like retro. A bunch of guys don’t sit around and talk about songs from 1998 and which ones they liked and what they are reminded of when they hear it.

      I have “Fly” stuck in my head now. It’s a change from that Metric song which is ALWAYS there, “Beating like a hammer, beeaating like a haaaammer, help I’m alive and my heart is beating like a hammer.”

    Why did Kait’s roommate think this sign would have results as quickly as she desired? The background doesn’t say where this was posted.

    I guess I am one of the lucky ones.

    Whenever I’m in a situation where I sense “tension” in the air, I never feel the need to lash out, use drugs (legal or illegal), drink alcohol, or even smoke cigarettes.

    I just find myself a bean bag chair, pull out my ipod, then put on the one song that makes everything instantly better: “Make it with You” by Bread.

    It is the perfect song for any occasion: making love, or making anything, really.

    At parties, people always love when I play it, because it clues everyone in to the fact that I think it’s the appropriate time to dim the lights, commence with the slow dancing, and, what the hell, we’re all adults, so if anyone wants to get into some discreet heavy petting in the corner, have at it.

    But, please, no dry humping on the sofas. (They’re new. Remember the Roche Bobois set? I had to sell them, because of seepage. I like the Poltrano Fraus better anyway. Besides, it just gets the dog excited.)

    I imagine “Make it with You” would be the ultimate wanking song, too, but that is something I’ve never done.

    I’m saving masturbation for marriage.

    I don’t believe in God, but if there was anything that could make me question that belief it’s this song.

    ******

    Hey have you ever tried,
    Really reaching out for the other side?
    I may be climbing on rainbows
    But, baby here goes.

    Dreams they’re for those who sleep,
    Life is for us to keep,
    And if youre wondering
    What this song is leading to

    I want to make it with you
    I really think that we can make it girl.

    No, you don’t know me well,
    In every little thing only time will tell,
    If you believe the things that I do.
    And we’ll see it through.

    Life can be short or long,
    Love can be right or wrong,
    And if I choose the one
    I’d like to help me through,

    I’d like to make it with you
    I really think that we can make it girl.

    Baby you know that
    Dreams they’re for those who sleep,
    Life is for us to keep
    And if I choose the one
    I’d like to help me through,

    I’d like to make it with you

    racerx,

    I’m happy if you’re happy.

    But, seriously, don’t you think that it would be that more special if, on the night of your wedding, that the two of you (husband and wife, presumably) share in experiencing the pleasure of your body?

    I do. What’s more, I’m glad that she’ll be there with me as I enjoy me fully and completely.

    I’m going to take full advantage of myself. Drain every drop. Strangle the vicar.

    I’d like to find a hotel suite with a closet that has a 360 degree mirror alcove (similiar to the one on the show “What Not To Wear.”

    I’ll have my wife up on scaffolding above the mirror booth filming my first explosion.

    Hopefully she’ll manage to stay ALL the way out of the shot. I don’t want to have the scene ruined by dangling hair or her damn cell phone.

    Then, after I’m thoroughly spent, we can climb into the marital bed. She’ll tenderly take my limp tap into her yob, and as I hit the remote and watch myself take me 360, she’ll think that I’m responding to her, which, in a way, it could be argued, I would be — her steady camera work. It’s like a M.C. Escher kaleidoscopic masturbatory dreamed filmed by Fellini at George Lucas’s studios, only without all the existential bullshit that nobody cares about.

    As long as she’s happy, I’m happy. Whoever she is. Whoever you are.

      Get over yourself… as long as its marginally entertaining, I have no quarrel. If you come across something non-PAN related that you don’t wish to read, just skip over it and move along. Its not that difficult, I promise you…

    Clarification:

    I just remembered another one.

    So I guess it should be 5 rules:

    No guys. (That would be SO gay.)

      I smell a TV sitcom ” Five Rules for Dating The Old School” Who should we cast as TOS?

      You’re not thinking “pink” enough Inspector.

      Looking back aways I see you think aaa is a male. You FAIL again The Old School.

      You’re good at failure. It must suck to be a lonely person who likes to see his own words in print.

      BTW, the edit function works.

      Again, if you’re so intent on reading things only PAN related, why post these bitter bitch-fests? Skip the original comment and move on. And guess what? If it happens to be the last comment of the day, you’re done! Is the light bulb on yet?

      Agree – I think it’s nice that TheOldSchool finally has his very own troll. Let them murmur sweet nothings in the corner if they want to and just ignore them; this isn’t *your* website, think pink!

      If I was the Casting Director, I’d choose Kirk Cameron for TOS.

      It’s too bad Heath Ledger passed away; he would have played a great claw71.

      Angelina is waaaay too serious to play Mish. I’m thinking more along the lines of Christina Applegate or Cameron Diaz.

      Think Pink,

      I love being lectured to by people I’ve never noticed. From what little I have to go on, I’d say you were better off lurking.

      I’d always noticed the sour, almost funereal odor that wafted about this place. I knew it to be the distinctly unforgettable stench of the elusive uber-skank.

      Thank you for revealing yours(h)elf. Now….*choke*….leave.

      While you’re in town, you might want to hit Jiffy Lube. For $39.95, they’ll tighten your axe wound and empty your cum-bucket.

      That’s money you could get high with, I know, but, darling, the people in the other trailers aren’t just talking… they’re gagging.

      Give that thing some R & R. The drunks will happily pay just as much for mouth love, if only so they don’t have to listen to you speak.

      P.S. Make sure the Jiffy Lubers remember to drain the tranny fluid in the back.

      And vacuum the lice!

      That’s all! GO!!!

      cheese fries,

      Where do people come up with these outlandish notions? If I have one that lasts over four hours, I call my doctor.

    I think it is sad and pathetic that it has to create it’s own troll so it can have more than a one sided conversation. TOS/POS should go back to Yahoo answers where the rest of the mental masturbating, impressed with their own voice, halfwits drone on and on about unfunny and unconnected twaddle.

    But I see that school/daycare has started already. It will be hours before it gets home and mommy gives it a juice box and some cheesy poofs. Then it can sit down and compose some more crapola. For now we wait

      RonJon,

      Sad AND pathetic? If I were you, I’d have let “pathetic” carry the load.

      Unlike many here, I’ve never posted anything under any name than TheOldSchool.

      RonJon, I’d say more, but you’re not worth it.

    The other day I was on the bus and some one else had their iPod headphones loud enough that everyone around them could hear their crappy music. I can’t remember exactly what band it was, but I do remember wanting to tap them on the shoulder and go “hey dude, *insert band name here* sucks, oh and turn that shit down”

    I can see why Kait’s roommate was upset.
    I mean, who ever heard of a loud Frat party?
    Aren’t these usually smallish affairs featuring quiet piano bar type music and canapés?

    I am entirely loving the Sugar Ray reference. It really brings the whole patronizing nature of the note together. That and the markers.
