How Y’all, Youse and You Guys Talk
What does the way you speak say about where you’re from? Answer all the questions below to see your personal dialect map.
Apparently, on my first pass through the quiz, I'm from the south east, somewhere near Richmond. Or Birmingham. Or Augusta.

One out of three ain't bad for an online quiz, though.

'Tractor-trailer' and 'y'all' helped them peg me closest.



My second time through gave a more accurate result, based on a couple of different questions. Atlanta was the outlier thanks to the pajama question.


That test was wholly inaccurate, it was off by at least 75 miles! I was pegged as Modesto/Stockton/Santa Rosa, but grew up in San Jose.

Californians sure are a silly folk.

Another discount PSA: Gilt has a handful of Drakes and Luciano Barbera ties/PSes at nice prices. May have kopped if not for the dreaded XMas-wallet-syndrome.

Dennis DeYoung is to assholes what vicuna is to fabrics, a class unto himself, the smelliest turd in a mountain of shit. And his "music" is even worse. Perhaps there is a hidden message that makes sense when you play a Dennis DeYoung record backwards at 78, because there sure as hell isn't anything there when you play one at 33.

Even if I liked Dennis DeYoung--and I really, really don't--I would never publicly admit it. I thought I would retch when Eazy confessed to liking Billy Ocean, who is Frank Zappa, Roky Erickson, Miles Davis, Johnny Cash, John Coltrane and David Bowie all rolled into one compared with Dennis DeYoung.

I'm constantly amazed at the crappy music that people here who otherwise have such impeccable taste think is good. Not long ago, IIRC, someone said they like the Ray Conniff Singers. Seriously, WTF. I'm leaving now to blast some Spinal Tap in the car--I have some last-minute shopping to do.

So what your saying is, you don't like Dennis DeYoung?

Seriously though, I literally shot coffee out of my nose while reading this. rotflmao.gif

I found a bunch of stuff this past weekend and haven't had time to photograph anything but did want to post this baby. NWT Pringle of Scotland knit coat. Heavy as all get out and retailed last AW at around $1600 USD.


That's a real nice coat; should fit perfect in your new store (even though it's new). What's with the crazy stuff turning up in our clothing wasteland?

I was up in the far north for dinner and hit a thrift beforehand and found a Mister Freedom workshirt. I can't ever figure out a store that even sells that here!

This kind of reminded me of a guy who reviewed new albums back in the late 60's for an underground newspaper (Minneapolis Flag, The East Village Other...maybe the Chicago Seed), but your hate for Dennis DeYoung reminded me of his absolute hate for of Iron Butterly's title track In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida. I gotta try and dig it out.

Haha, hit the nail on the head. Minneapolis/St. Paul and Madison Wisconsin. Everyone on here whom I've spoken on the phone with has noticed my mild "Minn-ee-sooh-taah" accent. Whenver we go down to SoCal to visit my wife's family I start to notice it more, mostly because they point it out. laugh.gif
