Things are gettin' funky there (Deep Sub-Reddit prefight)

Post by Lunkhead » Wed Apr 08, 2015 11:30 pm

I don't know, I've never really gotten into Reddit much myself, but for some reason the title makes me think of funk music. What's your take going to be?

I am totally going beat poetry on this fight. I have to be honest and say I don't visit reddit (or their rival), so I see them both as places that can be comedically, but pointedly, reviewed via the amazing medium of beat poetry.

Anyone ever seen Mike Myers in "So I Married an Axe Murderer"? "Woman Whoa-man" and "Harriet" :) Youtube those!

Reddit is good for a few things, but those few things live deep in the shadows of all the stuff that makes Reddit absolutely terrible.

So I have a few ideas for song concepts.

I'm more concerned that it'll just be a batch of songs about The Button.

Yes, a Mike Myers fav of mine! "Jane! Stop this crazy thing.....called love" :P
.....by the way, Harriet is the wife/mom on the new Tim Allen show Last Man Standing.

I haven't said "terrible title" for a long time. Terrible title.

Maybe instead of chiming in with snark on the boards you should chime in with a song in the fight? :P

It is pretty terrible. Because you don't hyphenate "subreddit". But then, you don't put an apostrophe in "Tysons Corner" either, not the mall-city anyway. But who's counting. Now that I've snarked I guess I'd better try to do something.

Whenever Frank says that, he writes a classic. *cough*

Now I'm going to write a song about a guy who broke up with a girl because she didn't spell "subreddit" correctly only to realize that she was the only one for him and he had doomed himself to being FOREVER ALONE.

Advance apologies, but I can only imagine this turning into a Riff Raff song ... and more advance apologies if you end up looking Riff Raff up and listening to his "songs."

Snark is easier, and less time consuming :)
I'm working on a song, tho.

I'm trying to work on something. Beauty part is, if I fail, I can blame it on the title :-) Regrettably, I've spent some time in the deep subreddits myself.

I would like to go on record that I went into this fight positively, thinking the title was a challenge. Now I just hate it to death.

HAHAH! Me too. Actually, I think I found an open mic night to perform my poem live. I wasn't kidding when I said I was going to do beat poetry... well actually I think the appropriate moniker for what I am doing is called a "Slam Poem". Anyway, if the venue comes through, then I hope I don't mess up patching into their sound board. I have my fingers crossed!
