What Are You Listening To?


Recommended Posts

"What are you listening to?" says the thread title.

It didn't say it had to be a song.  Here's a comedy skit a friend of mine from Calif. made me listen to.

It's 100% clean.  It's a Mexican-American girl doing a skit where she talks about her Mexican family in the first half and takes us along on an excursion to an obviously Vietnamese run nail salon in the second half.  My friend knew I like different accents and would enjoy this video.  Her small stature and unassuming nature make her comic delivery all that more convincing.

If you've lived out West and wanted to get a good, inexpensive haircut, these shops for men and women would often be owned and operated by Vietnamese folks.  So, at $8 plus a tip, you're on your way in 20 minutes for about $10 or $11.

As for her stories of growing up Mexican, the accents and inflections she does are spot on with those of a lot of my SoCal Catholic school friends' Mexican parents.  As for the Vietnamese part, the accents are spot on with what I've experienced getting my hair cut, minus any of the upselling and theatrics in the skit.

When I need a random laugh, I'll put this on and forward it to 4:25, and it puts me in a better mood.  However, the whole skit is damn good.

Happy New Year.

most of the movie theatre laughed at this scene 

I got soooooooo pissed.   I mean...I like Led Zep and all, but there is no-way/no-how that ANYBODY on the planet that could get an AC/DC song wrong!  Especially THAT one.

That was supposed to be the punchline, yes. I suppose.

But not when THAT song is (over)played in movies*cough like in this one cough*  as it is and it being a sports anthem song all over the world no matter what sport.  

But I guess the joke got its cheap laughs no matter what I thought of it. 

And yeah. I like AC/DC for me to be so anal about a shytty joke like that.

I recently happened into this and it's pretty damn funny ... hello Jersey Shore.  

It brings up the notion as to whether most stereotypes have some accuracy.

If enough people didn't notice them, they wouldn't exist.  I guess that means "yes."

Hooked on this Singer Dami Im from Australia. Signed by Sony after winning the singing competition in her country.

 

Here is how Dami Im started, a 24 year old piano teacher that auditioned on the X Factor.

This song is playing recently on a TV commercial . Dont remember which product (or service) this song is helping to peddle.  These past few days it has been on my mind and I was going through the lyrics...

On the wrong side of history is where we are at right about now.  What a reversal of what this song is trying to say...

 

How the phoque did we get here this way since 1991?  I certainly did not see this coming...

Always liked that song, remember when it came out when I was in college.  Kind of a one hit wonder band.  Where have the last 30 years gone?
