Things you just don't get - Page 1571

I got a barreltone voice to me. I won't even lie, though, I have got hell of stereotypically "gay" speaking voice, which has pervented me from getting those lucrative singing gigs. (Also I am a bad singer.)

If you have good rhythm and feel you can go far without having great technique. If you have bad rhythm, you'll step all over everyone else and stick out. Rhythm can't be faked.

It's definitely important to learn some decent singing technique if one expects to have any sort of longevity.

That makes sense. I don't see how anyone could make a go of a musical career without decent rhythm. We had a keyboard player jam with us a few times who didn't have good rhythm. It was impossible to play with him (even though, somehow, he could play pretty well alone) and so we had to send him on his way.

My best friend has a gay sounding voice. When I first met him in college I thought he was gay so I treaded lightly (careful not to use derogatory speech, or make allusions to stereotypes) but then he soon later began talking about how he likes meaty chicks with "big ole' asses" and "substantial" bosom.

I think my voice sounds a lot like Matthew Fox's voice from the show "Lost". That said, I am really good at singing Oasis songs.

Took the toddler back west to my old stompin' grounds for a ridic good brunch. Hardly a rough hood but has gentrified greatly. Apparently a typical egg-white-omelet place has opened *right next door* to the phenomenal multi-decade diner. That's fine and all but TIJDG? Who in the f*ck walking by would pick it over the diner for *breakfast*?

Then it rushes into my mente as I am waking up one morning that I need to properly dispose of the body so it can never be found. The thought of dealing with this decayed body disgusts me so much that I put off dealing with it for a very long time. Once I get the nerve to finally meet the putrid body again, I approach this basement with caution and I wake up. I wonder what this could mean?

It's like you're the real life Patrick Bateman

You should be grateful it's there to divert the hipster demographic away from your place, making the wait for breakfast shorter.

The same god damned people who prefer the new Chick-fil-A Egg White Grill to the Spicy Chicken Biscuit (RIP). May they rot in hell.

Egg whites aren't food. It's like eating unflavored gelatin. The same jagoffs who insist on egg whites also think brown rice, despite tasting like wet newspapers, is healthier because of a marginal difference in "vitamins and minerals."

once for a family breakfast we went to this crepe place that was actually run by French people. my sister asked if they had "Egg Beaters" and the guy was nonplussed and when she explained that she wanted fake eggs i thought he was going to slap her. it was pretty authentic spot i think.

People in general that go to a place then ask for silly substitutions.

Your carnitas taco? Can the chef make that with tofu instead?

The fish beurre blanc sauce? Is there any way the chef can make the sauce without butter?


I wonder if anyone goes to a vegan restaurant and asks to have steak slices substituted for tofu?

Maybe people just like spit in their food.
