...then I guess I gonna sell it!

Okay, so it's a bit hypocritical of me to post a youtube video after hating on the website a few months ago, but this is too hilarious not to share with the world (re: my smattering of readers).


Basically, I posed a strikingly similar argument to my parents when I was her age. Only I was asking for the complete Dragonriders of Pern series, not an pregnancy, and arguing that I was making too many visits to the public library to borrow the science fiction books, not sleeping with 3 dudes.

I have to say I'm perplexed by this girl's accent. It doesn't really sound like any regional accent as much as some sort of new MTV/Black Snake Moan-inspired urban/southern drawl. "Still" for "steal." Fascinating. I wonder if we're experiencing a shift from geographically defined speech patterns to different media sources. Or maybe I'm just overanalyzing because the video was so funny I watched three or four times.

I definitely almost blogged about the accent--I had the exact same reaction. This is really quite fascinating, I think, but I know too little about linguistics/dialects to comment on how regional speech patterns developed in the past...the fact that the internet/media has greatly enabled the pervasion of slang to specific classes/social groups must play a large role.

That said--the part where the camera pans to the heap of toys is my favorite.

Dear Miss,
This is unrelated but you should write an art review of the MFA painting show. You would get to use all of your theory/critical skills to analyze the artwork. It would be cool you should do it!
An art student.
PS. The opening for the 2nd painting show is this saturday at 7
PPS. I'm not in the show, myself.

I'll definitely go see the show, but my art theory/critical toolbox is a bit sparse...

Did you have any work in the last show?

I'm sorry...the opening is in fact a closing and will be on the 21st. but the show is going up soon!
I'm just a first-year so my work is not included.
As far as the theory/critical stuff goes, just whip out any old foucault or deleuze/guitari type stuff and randomly apply it. that's how it works i think
or try the semiotic approach that is very popular and easy to paste on to any kind of thought
bye!

this brings me back...to my visit to a taping of maury!

south park did an amazing parody of this as well with the cartman: "whateva, i do what i want" episode. which is basically what this girl is saying.

also, at the taping it was funny to see these people on tv, then to walk outside and see them chain-smoking and eating kfc.

The video is good. This girl's accent is similar to East Hartford people.

This is ridiculous video. Borrowing the books from the library is very good habit rather than doing the other things.
