"Plugging In" - Say It Ain't So...

Thu May 13, 2004 5:21 pm

OK, does this shit really happen?

A friend of mine on the East coast said that the latest fad at parties is "plugging in," where the losers at the party will take turns playing songs off their iPod. I can't think of anything that would kill the mood of a party faster, aside from TWISTEDWHISPER showing up. I'd imagine the conversation going something like this:

Jerkoff #1: Hey there, great party you've got here. I really like the ambiance with the lights turned all the way up, guys farting for fun and fat, disgusting girls.

Jerkoff #2: Thanks buddy, my pleasure. Is there enough Busch Ice to keep you well-hydrated?

J1: There sure is... Say, I don't mean to impose or be ungrateful, but I was wondering if I could plug in for a bit. This party needs some juicing up and "The Chipmunks Sing Aretha Franklin's Greatest" isn't really, um, cutting the mustard. I've got some bitchin' Kenny G and Barry Manilow. We could totally groove to that.

J2: Why of course, plugging in is the coolest fad since watch guards and snap bracelets! Far be it from me to stop you from ruining my party. After all, it sucked to begin with.


So have any of you been in this situation? Was it uncomfortable? Were you permitted or did you permit the plugging in? But most important, does this really happen?

Its my party and I'll choose the music. So if I want to play Leneord Cohen or Woodie Guthrie all night i will! OK that might kill the party, but its my house ,I control the sound system.
Why would anyone want to take a personal system of any sort to a party? Are they that lacking in social skills?

Sounds like a group of sad little lunatics to me.
If I was at a party and saw this developing would have to do one of 2 things...
1) Stay at the party and think of ways to have more fun, such as sticking needles in my eyes.
or
2)Beat the crap out of a couple of these turds just for being such d*cks. And then get the hell outta there.

Still you go to a party like that and you should feel food. At least you know that life can ONLY get better. You are at the bottom and there is only up left to go.

I thought that the East Coast was "Coolsville, USA". Jeez! Why not have a Gameboy party? Or even better, Tamagotchi.  Smokin cool Cool? NOT.

Thank God I have yet to experience the sheer terror of what you are describing.

Aside from KROC getting dropped like MaverickM11's pants at a NAMBLA convention...

The silence from the East coast is deafening. I KNOW some of you people do this. It's time to step forward and defend yourselves.

Apparently the iPod is now considered by some as an "accessory" and people carry it around just like cell phones, wallets, etc. This is something I've not seen in person, but I lived on the east coast for several years and knowing the people and the culture there, this would not surprise me at all.

thought that the East Coast was "Coolsville, USA".

No, no, no. You must have mistook the "T" as a "C."

WellHung manages a devasting uppercut (though it's kind of a sucker punch) that sends MaverickM11 to the mat.

Hey, we actually drink PBR, not Busch Lite.

No, in all seriousness, if you think that's the big fad over here then you're a frickin idiot. I dont know where your friend is exactly, but I travel up and down the coast regularly and I have never heard of that before. There are losers everywhere so I have no doubt that this occurs, but c'mon man, do you really think this is the next big thing out here? People are basically the same all over the country, and although I've never been to a West Coast party I'm willing to bet there are kegs, girls, and rap, because that's how it is out here. If your friend lives in anything larger than a farming village and only sees the parties you're talking about, then he's with the wrong people.

It ain't so.

I'll have none of this Busch Light bashing... although if you're drinking it for any other reason than to get fucked up, you've got issues.

Ok, I'll represent. Here in NYC, the iPod is indeed fast becoming the de rigeur accessory for interfacing with the urban jungle. Knowing nods of complicity are often exchanged when the white-earbud set pass each other on the sidewalk. And of course, it's so useful for drowning out that annoying "step in stand clear of the closing doors." That being said, I have yet to witness any plugging in at a social gathering, party or otherwise. But maybe that's because we tend to socialize in bars and clubs where the music situation is already taken care of, since the over-priced postage stamp size apartments we inhabit aren't really conducive to great parties (unless you're filthy rich or live in Queens!).

I'd never bash Busch Light. Please reread the original post - I was referring to Busch ICE, which does nothing but subtract from the legacy of Light.

And my friend lives in New York City. Perhaps you've heard it mentioned in your travels. You're a frickin' idiot if you haven't. Slightly larger than a farming village. Neither he nor I said that these are the only types of parties he sees, only that they exist. But I'd like to hear from someone who actually goes to parties, not one who just travels up and down the coast.

But considering that most people have no clue how to party, it would not surprise me if this became more popular and it was the new big thing. As Ezra pointed out, there are millions of them around. Pretending the problem doesn't exist is just a safety mechanism to protect yourself from the impending disaster. It's just a matter of time before iPodders come together and explode in a supernova of party mediocrity. Kegs, girls and rap? Give me a break... that's so high school. Wine, sluts and Zeppelin!

Some people actually like the shitty beers. I know someone who makes over $100k a year, is well over the legal drinking age, and does not live with his parents who drinks Milwaukee's Best... I had never seen anyone over the age of 19 drink that shit before him.

What is this "New York City" place? Is that the mythical land where everything is overpriced where 'west side story' took place?

I will never question the legitimacy of wine, sluts, or Zeppelin, I would rather do things that way - I love me some of that Carlo Rossi; at any rate, the common party denominators are alcohol, music, and women.

I trust you are referring to "Paisano," as that is the only Rossi variant worthy of acknowldgement.

If I ever saw this at a party, I would probably leave. Let the geeks have their fun playing with the iPod. I mean, my goal at parties is to hang out with friends, get drunk, and "meet" women. These losers have their priorities WAY out of line.
