this has turned from the worst thread ever

Minor Threat, Fugazi, Avail, GB, Bold, Shelter

to the best band-name-dropping music thread ever! I love most of these bands and that makes me happy. Not shelter though. Jeeeezus. Now I'm going to have a celebratory listen to 'break Down The Walls'. So whether you're a brohole or a wussy, at least we can all agree that everything that I enjoy can be proven empirically to RULE!

Can playing bass in the reunited version of a classic sXe hardcore band (that you weren't an original member of) help you get laid? Nope.

Personally, on topic, I'd rather not tell someone I was chatting with that I write or play music or whatever. In fact, public talk with new strangers about art and "creativity" almost always turns me off. It is so often unfulfilling that I've aquired a negative Pavlovian response and will actually take steps to avoid it.

I come in a bag.

Literally.

Because I'm a douche like that.

Literally.

I can get behind enchiladas. Sauce and extra cheese can make a shoe taste good. Tamales are always pretty good.

Hey, everyone, I'd like your advice on something.

If I'm trying to get laid and I write her a text saying "Meet me at my place at 1 am" and she replies saying "Hot, sounds good" and we have incredible sex, do I then have the right to say that my writing has helped me get laid?

There's this internet thread I really want to contribute to but I wouldn't want to come across as a dick by misunderstanding the exact nature of the argument.

I don't know if your writing helped you get laid, but it certainly seemed instrumental in getting something hot and tasty in your mouth.  So, you know, halfway home.

The answer is obvious. You must first find and resurface the "am I a writer" thread and if you are indeed a writer, then the partner in question must specifically credit your writer status for 51% of her desire and then and only then, may you reply to the original post in the affirmative.

"Meet me at my place at 1 am"

We all know you can do much better than that as a writer, Fylh. So, the answer is Your rose-sending skills help you get laid -- or, Girl has seen you in your chaps already and stuff.


Something you didn't know about Flaminia yet.

I actually use the "I am a writer" line when I want to discourage unlikely suitors. They beat it like hell's skid marks.

Long overdue, as this thread appears to have died, but my deepest, sincerest apologies for the pretentious outbursts I have spewed on here. I can't rationalize my past behavior, but can say I've been doing some personal exploration and growing and it hit me to come back to this thread, as even cyber quarrels are important to settle, I think. I'm sorry, Eddie. You seem a good, honest guy.

I would just like to add that I play guitar and sing, and have played live in various bands for 10 years, and it has never gotten me laid. Granted, I was dating someone for 8 of those years. But no offers, or bras or what have yous were ever thrown my way.

I want to get laid too but first have to settle some stuff from the past.  To bad that past is not really cooperating. Come on girl. I have a little aspergio, help me out.

The only damn reason I write is to get laid.  Honestly, it's the only reason I do almost everything!  It hasn't helped a bit.  It hasn't gotten me one inch closer to a relationship or to just good ol' fasion fucking.  

I haven't written in a year because of this.

It did get me naked pictures, once, though.  So that was nice.

This is a sad thread... Guys, really? If you don't know by now how to romance a chick to the point where she might look forward to sharing your bed and perhaps having a mutually happy ending, well, methinks you are hopeless!

You are who you are; :) you know this... I know from being in the business music won't do it in most cases, and I can't think writing is any different. 

I call BS on this thread.. sorry :)

Ok, I'd like to see the guy who could accomplish that mission and be able to say that both of said chicks were happy (and mostly sober) at the event! This is every guy's dream. Notice how not so many (if any) chicks have the same dream? (2 chicks and 1 guy, that is; my declaration doesn't cover other situations.) :)

That is my point; no one in America has a life long dream of a cheeseburger.  Maybe a craving for one, but that is about it.  Same thing here; ladies can just roll out and find 3 ways with 2 guys so it isn't a dream come true.
