Winter tis a bitch
So wear something nice and warm
Lest you freeze your tits

There was grass outside.
This morning there was a snowstorm.
You couldn't even see where you were driving.
Tonight it is green again.

When much snow I saw indeed I frowned
Though I left my lady there between those great lakes
When I think of that cold my body aches

Soft whiteness
falls from the sky
footsteps in it
my skin's really dry

My heating is messed up
and my house is old
my window's are busted
and DAMN MY ROOM IS COLD.

But I had a nice holiday
spent some time with my honey
got an xbox, a necklace
and a whole lot of money

It's school time my friends
so no more snowy games to play
guess summer is like what Frost said
"Nothing gold can stay"

So now I'm in a musical
Three months of Producer filled nights
and I'm done rhyming for now
cause it's still really cold, alright?

But it's a "dry" cold. :p

Seriously, I grew up in northern Indiana where it could get pretty cold, but it was after moving to southwest Virginia that I experienced how bad "wet" cold weather can be. It rarely gets really cold here, but when the temperature hovers around freezing the air stays very humid and soaks into your clothes and generally gives you that wonderful "bone-chilling" effect. I frequently find myself hoping that it actually gets colder just to knock that humidity out of the air.

I like to call it "pneumonia weather".

Speaking of which: has anyone seen that church in eastern Europe with the interior completely decorated with the bones of thousands of plague victims? I think I saw it on the History Channel. It's got to be one of the most macabre things I've ever seen.

OT: Well, it's now hovering around +5 degrees F here in southwest Virginia, so it's now the coldest that it's been here in recent memory, but at least it's dry. ;)

Personally, I can't stand the dry cold. I've constantly been applying lotion and chap stick all day, but my hands are so dry that they've begun to crack and bleed, and my lips feel the same. Not good.

But to be fair, I've never really experienced a "wet cold." I don't think.

Get a humidifier. ;)

Sure you have. It usually happens in the Spring up there. It's any time that the temp is >32F but <40F and the humidity level is high. The reason that you don't notice it so much up there is because it gets so friggin' cold (and stays that way all winter) that anything above freezing feels warm.

The reason I bitch about the "wet cold" so much is that it usually doesn't get much colder than freezing down here (now being an exception) but the air stays damp all winter long unless it does, and, being a transplanted Yankee, I'm used to "dry cold".
Hey, I loved the 80's!
I'm sorry. :(
My favourite decade in fact, the music was awesome.
You'll have to go into specifics here, but I sincerely hope that you're not referring to 80s pop, because I think that the vast majority of it sucked balls. Repetitive, repetitive, repetitive crap. Towards the end of the decade I wanted to seek out and kill the ****in' moron whose brilliant idea was like "Hey, let's see how many times we can repeat the same 7- to 9-note tune and the same 7- to 9-word phrase in one song. I'll bet it becomes a trend." Well, unfortunately it did. :swear:

Tyrion
01-16-2009, 09:17 PM
It's a known fact that 80's pop songs were known for their lyrical eloquence and subtlety, harmonically and contrapuntally complex music, and their total lack of flamboyantly homosexual overtones. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyl5DlrsU90)

You wouldn't like it. "Wet cold" is not a very good description, try "piercingly horrible cold."

Also, yes, the 80's had Regan and some (some) good entertainment, but agh, it's the culture that bothers me.

Boba Rhett
01-16-2009, 10:25 PM
Well that's too bad because the 80's are coming back, baby, so hold onto your headbands.

Q
01-16-2009, 10:53 PM
Reagan was great, and so were the cartoons, but there are other parts of the 80s that I really hope stay in the 80s.

Leg warmers, for example. :p

BongoBob
01-16-2009, 11:53 PM
Oh and the cartoons, THE CARTOONS.

But the 90s had Animaniacs, Freakazoid, and Rocko's Modern Life to name a few. Therefore 90's > 80's.

Boba Rhett
01-17-2009, 12:16 AM
By even daring to say that the 90s had better cartoons than the 80s you just failed harder than anyone has ever failed in the history of fail. Good luck living with yourself you horrible horrible person.

I think we can all agree: ANY DECADE OTHER THAN THE ONE YOU PERSONALLY CAME-OF-AGE IN SUCKS MORE HORRIBLY THAN THE POWER OF WORDS COULD EVER EXPRESS.

:dozey:

Lets face it: Nobody walks away unscathed from the great "let's compare the pop-culture of different decades" debate. It's a zero-sum game, and we all get dirty and become lesser human beings for doing it.




But the 80's were the best...

Boba Rhett
01-17-2009, 03:03 AM
The hell they do, son. I could still watch 80's cartoons every day. I'm even stockpiling eighties cartoons on dvd for my future children.

London is severly disrupted today. -7 with windchill. Heaviest snowfall for 18 years. No buses running, severe delays on the tubes and most schools closed.

Yep, pathetic eh?

It rarely snows here, and when it does everything comes to a standstill. Even with prior warning, no grit is laid down and no preperations made. It's the subject of constant jokes between Londoners, but we don't really mind because it means a day off work. It was like the whole of London came out to play yesterday.

Funny thing is all the people (probably Daily Mail readers) demanding that the government buy Snow Ploughs, and invest in snow equipment -all because for two days out of a year the country goes ga-ga.

"Canada/Moscow doesn't have this problem!" people scream.

There's a reason for that - on average, they have snow for nearly half a year. And, as the news says, it's the worst it's been for two decades.

About 5 inches has been bumped on Warwickshire overnight. Now it's our turn to come to a complete halt... :p

EDIT: All buses have been cancelled (Coventry, Rugby, Leamington, the list goes on), as well as trains... and i'm not stupid enough to try and walk anywhere.

I certainly will, as far as I can. Ideally I'd go out riding (perfect for keeping warm, and enjoy the snow at the same time), but it's six miles to the stables... :(

It's very difficult to make out the pavement in some places -

Pfft. That's nothing. :p That's what winter is like here normally. Expect right now, where it's like spring.

Trust me though, the snow will come back.

We are fairly lightweight over here - but we don't get it too often, so we go to pieces at what most would call a light shower. :p

It is fun watching people unexpectedly do 360 turns in a people carrier, though. :)

No, but there were crowds like that in every park in London. The city went a bit crazy on Monday. There were snow sculptures and people having snowball fights everywhere you looked. We may not get snow very often, but when we do, we make the most of it. :)
