Whoomp! (I did it for you)

On our way to dinner tonight, the radio was down low — low enough that we could talk, but up enough that you could still hear it during a pause in conversation. And I did...

Whoomp! There it is. Whoomp! There it is.

I pointed to the radio. "I think you need to do something about that."

He changed the station immediately. Then, curiously, he switched it back.* "Wait a minute, I forgot I've got good bass in this car."

He cranked it. He cranked it and turned up the base and dropped the treble to zero. My arm vibrated on the arm rest. He laughed as he pointed out the rearview mirror was vibrating.

"I'm going to post about this on my blog."

He turned it down. "What? I did it for you - so you could feel the bass."

Nice try.

*My husband doesn't actually like Whoomp! (There it is). He does, however, enjoy torturing me with bad music.

We could get some Vanilla Ice, some MC Hammer, and then we be jammin'!

Let's not give him any ideas.

Maybe a mix CD of the best white rappers of the 80s and 90s?

We'd have Vanilla Ice and Eminem and Marky Mark and even BAG himself!

Then we could peddle it during commercial breaks in Kung Fu reruns at 2am on the local UHF channel.

We'll call it 'Crackah Funk' Volume 1.

Opportunity of a lifetime!

Anyways, what were we talking about again?

Ho! I just checked my iTunes library and I have:

Vanilla Ice - Ice Ice Baby
Marky Mark - Good Vibration
Eminem - Stan, Lose Yourself

I have no excuse. Vanilla Ice was downloaded as a joke, but I'm going to admit to having actually liked that Marky Mark song and those 2 Eminem songs.

And now I'm crankin' "Lose Yourself" :D

Who are you and what did you do with Roxy?

I'm not a music purist. I have LOTS of crap in my iTunes library. If you want to know what I really listen to (it's not pretty, I warn you, especially when I listen to the same playlists over and over again for weeks), I've got a last.fm widget in my profile now.

It's like a record store vomited into your profile page.

Then again, who am I to talk, really? I have Blondie and Metallica and They Might Be Giants and Lorena McKennit and Disturbed and the LotR soundtracks all packed away in my CD case in my car.

Blondie and Metallica I also have. I've never even heard of Lorena McKennit, so I sampled her in the iTunes music store and um, yeah, don't judge. ;)

I was young and impressionable! I was experimenting! I only did it the one time! I never inhaled!

Heh. Now that's some quality obnoxiousness.

I hate people who drive around with the bass cranked up to absurd levels. It annoys everyone around and the vibrations hurt my head. In fact, people who think that the quality of a sound system is measured by the quantity of bass irritate the crap out of me. I want to hear music, not feel it in my chest. It seems like every time I go to a bar venue to hear some local band, I can't make out any of the words over the overzealous bass.

...There's a radio station that still plays "Whoomp! (There It Is)"?

Apparently there IS a radio station that still plays it. I know, we were like uh WTF is THIS doing on the radio?!

Yeah,, hubby is the master of musical annoyances.

Loud bass - We live a lock off campus (college where we both went) and spring semester is the worst. LOUD LOUD LOUD BOOM CARS driving down our street. Even when I was in college I didn't do that shit. I hate it. The windows rattle sometimes when they go by. It's ridiculous.

I live in the University District, so I hear it all. Loud music, drunks leaving the bar shouting to each other, fireworks, you name it. (Only gunshots the one time, thankfully.) It's a toss-up on what's more annoying: drunk college kids shrieking to each other and making me think someone might need help, or wannabe-bangers with oversized subwoofers projecting their bass everywhere they go.
