Seriously, no one says "yook" in Hawaii. Of course, what you folks do on the mainland is up to you.

WordMan, glad to hear your son's sophomore year is shaping up well. Our son was lucky from the get-go, and he hasn't encountered any significant problems (yet). He's thriving and enjoying himself immensely.

The grocery stores in my far-from-cutting-edge exurb play all sorts of stuff over their sound systems; I never know what I'll hear. But a good deal of the time, it's relatively current stuff. I'll be pushing my cart down the aisle to Imagine Dragons or Bastille.

All right: this thread has gone four pages, and we've drifted into grocery store music, initially (apparently, he says cluelessly), a commentary on the corksniffing pedantry we have been railing at, but now, simply because Dopers love a good hijack.

More importantly, our doggy douchebag has been active on the SDMB but stayed out of this thread. He can't get past a word, one which I have made clear, is not the point. I am not sure what he is looking to claim about being above it all, but all I see is an example of the exact same behavior from him: acting like a petulant twit, while not engaging people who are talking to him.

This Pitting can be done*, but to be clear: there is some shit up with which we Dopers will not put. One of the worst is the charge of Bad Geekery with the intent to be a Smug Douche - that's a first-degree offense, I tell you!! You are now, via the full power of this very silly Pitting, That Guy(tm). Don't be That Guy.

Around 40 years ago, when Supertramp was popular, I heard a Muzak version of Breakfast In America in a supermarket.

You guys are hilarious.

*bump*

Is it just me, or would "Keep Fuckin' That Cactus" make for a great Tom Petty song title? Or how about John Cougar Mellencamp! Yeah, that's better.

:a lone, dryly-strummed guitar playing big major chords in a slow but powerful, Chevy commercial groove. A harmonica fill leads in. Then a weathered voice intones:

You don't care what the facts is
You just keep on fuckin' that cactus
You keep questioning a Mod's practice
You just keep on fuckin' that cactus


Hmm.

I'd like to point out that I dislike hearing the music that you pipe outside of your store, whatever it is. The music doesn't make me want to shop there.

I fear a future where every store has speakers outside and a walk down the sidewalk is like having someone constantly switching the radio.

Your first line makes me think of Steve Miller:

Draddy Dog is a defective down in Texas
You know he don't care exactly what the facts is
He ain't gonna let a band escape his justice
He just gonna keep on fuckin' that cactus

Well this is a story about drad dog the douche. A witless moron with nothin' better to do than sit around the house, websurf and criticize old Tom. Here's what happened when he decided to cut loose.

He headed down to old Cafe. WordMan caught up with him the very next day. He got his pitting, hey, he ran away. Hid his head in the sand and he's still a douchebag today.

Singing go on take your pitting and run. Hoo hoo hoo. Go on take your pitting and run. Auuuggahh. Go on take your pitting and run. Hoo hoo hoo. Go on take your pitting and run.

Hehehee, yes. That's got enough humility to satisfy my sense of decorum. I love that there's now been two ATMB threads about this one. Dude knows nothing of the Streisand effect - he refuses to participate in the thread, but runs around beating the shit out of himself for you by complaining about the title. Such a complete idiot.

If nothing else, his continued absence from this ongoing thread is a continued, glorious emblem of the coward they are. And every time they are a douchebag, this thread's gonna probably get bumped. So, I predict a pretty long life for this thread. Hopefully it will stand as a warning to others.


Apropos of this pitting because dd was terribly offended by easily verifiable acts that would have been self-evident to anyone who had "been there" when I mentioned it: Steely Dan was played un-altered as muzak when new. I still like SD, but that was where I heard them first.

I think this thread will stay on the front page of the Pit for a long time even before any additional assholery by douche dog, which is certain to happen too. It's the thread that keeps on giving. Much like Tom Petty's extensive and seldom discussed charity work.

Tom Petty did charity work? Gosh Crazyhorse, what can you tell us?

SteveG1 - that's nice of you to say. There's actually lots of folks I don't like - I've posted many times about Jim Morrison's assholery or not being a big fan of some bands. But I ONLY bring that up as MY opinion and I avoid threadshitting. The basics, y'know?

Oh yeah. Tom Petty was a seriously charitable dude. Just a partial list of some of the causes he supported includes Safety Harbor Kids, Special Olympics, Rock the Earth, MusiCares, Fender Music Foundation, Midnight Mission, and many more.

Just this year he was honored as the MusiCares person of the year. They provide support and community services to people in need of medical, personal and financial assistance. He helped raise $8.5 million for their programs and services in a fund raising concert that also included performances by Don Henley, The Bangles, Foo Fighters, Jackson Browne, Lucinda Williams, ELO's Jeff Lynne, George Strait, the Lumineers, Taj Mahal, Dhani Harrison - son of close friend George Harrison, Stevie Nicks, and Chris Hillman of the Byrds. They all did tribute covers of Petty and the Heartbreakers tunes and raised a bundle for a good cause.

Hey, now. Desert Roomie and I were in WalMart at 2am* when the Taco cover of Puttin' on the Ritz came on the overhead. At the appropriate moment, we both struck a pose and said ala Young Frankenstein, "Oo'e aw i ri-i-i-i-i!"

DR: I think we know each other too well.

And, since he's not worth responding to in a civil way. I'll just respond here.

Who cares what you think about other people's motivations, you stupid little cum bubble? When you say horseshit like like this, it says more about yourself than it does about anyone else. I know I ain't cool, and no amount of music nerdery will make me so. Having positions that are easily verifiable as being at odds with reality isn't making you cool, either. Still, you persist with them.

Actually, it's the exact fucking opposite. I'm saying you can be technical and still play punk -then I provided examples of that being done. Since I'm not a moron, I don't think that you have to play well to play Rock at all, and it's largely been a free-for all since the start WRT ability. You're the one making absolute statements and pushing them. You don't even have the sense to know how to attack my position. Here's a hint, fucktard: try to somehow attack my example's status as "punk". If you knew a goddamn thing about them, you'd know that one of my examples WROTE a song titled I'm Not A Punk, released on the same fucking album as the song I linked to. I was intentionally pitching soft balls. If you'd even bothered to educate yourself on the subject enough to read the Wiki entry on them, we could have had a discussion, because you'd then know enough about them to discuss it. You chose to remain an ignorant pile of rotten placenta, never to become a real boy.

I've had bowel movements who understood logic and argument better than you do. In fact, every one of my bowel movements is a genius in comparison to you - they don't say shit they can't back up.

Yep, and the thread advertised what it was doing in the title. You're some sort of fucking chatbot that can't actually understand the English you yourself spout, though. So, why should I be surprised that you're astonished at its contents?

Yeah, and after one post where they let up (without even a mea culpa on doing it and denying it), they're back to pushing the definition they swear they weren't pushing. What a complete waste of basic elements and electrons. If the nitwit can't tell the difference between the playing of Dr. Know and Ted Nugent, they might not be capable of commenting intelligently on the subject.

And if I may be so unkind: I'm beginning to suspect that they couldn't play either's leads (even though Nugent's are pretty easy, Dr. K's are fucking HARD), and that's why they seem to resent them and lump them together. I dunno, I don't really care enough to find out if I'm right. Dude's now batting worse than adaher at being obstinately wrong on their favorite subjects in the face of evidence to the contrary.


Thank you for this thread, any responses I actually make to this fool will be in here. I don't really care to talk to them, and ranting makes me feel better after reading the stupid.

I never made any proscriptive statement for players. Punk just doesn't sound practiced to me. Rock has become practiced. Why don't you just admit you're rock? Things are not going to be punk to someone else because you need or want them to be.

It isn't punk to define it and argue on to some kind of thread victory.

That's "rock." You need to get comfortable with that. Everything you do and say sounds like rock to me.

Punks DNA is snotty, rude, satirical, outsider/underground/gay, and learning how to play. If it changed to something else and kept the name why is that interesting?

I told you why I think it means something. Why does it mean what you think it does?
This is the stupidest post I've read in a long time. He's trying to convince me I'm playing rock, without having heard my music! He's of course trying to deny himself having defined punk in any way before, calling defining things unpunk, while defining what punk is again.

Yes, he is asserting that "Punk doesn't sound practiced to <him>" and that's that. It's okay, he doesn't believe a guitarist can be a true artist, either.

Smug, douchebag troll. Yep.

I think I have a new word for that tone he takes: Boardsplainin'.
My new word for when he hijacks somene else's ATMB thread to blubber about this thread some more is: Fuckhurt.

Example: Drad Dog is all fuckhurt again about this thread.

That's right. My pitting says "Fuck You" in the title. "Fuck You."

Good lord. The kerfuffle that keeps on kerfuffling. Fuckhurt indeed.

ddog, I have no idea what being a stalinist (small s or big) means in this case, but given how you're the one who's given the phrase its value, maybe it means "deluded cactus fucker".

You haven't changed your posting behavior - e.g., Punk is however you define it, and if folks disagree with you, you take shots at them - so I have no problem giving this tether ball another whack.

Hah! Come to think of it, them being a "stalinist" would line right up with their dictatorial style. Too bad the secret police think he's an idiot, too.

From what I learned at Wikipedia University this morning, the primary tenets of Stalinism were class-based violence, purges and executions, and deportations, and who among us isn't a proponent of at least one of those? Or maybe he's just a big fan of catastrophic agricultural policies that lead to genocidal famine?

Well, there's also the cult of personality and the primacy of the Soviet Union.

Actually I picture him with some wispy half-assed Che Guevara thing on his upper lip. And a dorky little soul patch.

I'm gonna guess pork pie hat. Or a trilby, only for the satisfaction of schooling anyone who calls it a fedora.
