Picking up girls can be as easy as opening a beer! The pick up system no girl can resist, apparently.

Good grief! I was shocked when the narrator suddently mentioned in his schpiel "Texas-sized titties". And the women are portrayed as docile fluff heads with "big knockers" and short attention spans.

You know, I lived in Hyde Park for a year and a half and I don't think anyone has ever managed to pick up a girl there. U of C students are antisocial like you wouldn't belive.

I thought opening beers was the key to picking up women.

No offense, specklet, but we're all grownups here, you do realize that when a man is trying to pick up a woman (or a man for that matter), he is more than likely thinking impure thoughts.

Don't listen to jonmc, specklet. Whenever I'm attracted to a woman I'm thinking about her personality and what I might do to get her interest. However, I should perhaps stress that I've never successfully picked up a woman in my entire life. Except in the literal sense.

Wow, this is quite possibly the most lecherously underhanded misogynistic thing I've ever heard. I'm swinging back and forth between being utterly shocked and completely entertained.

Who the hell in Texas talks like that? That's gotta be some northerner trying to put on a southern accent based on the accent they've heard in movies, which are actually other northerners trying to put on a southern accent.

This is excellent source material for samples. :P Just the kind of thing Kid Koala would use, surely. The narrator's old-school voice is pretty cool to hear, too, especially to me as a non-USian, and especially given some of the content - compare to a school-use educational tape. :P

Lift with your legs, not your back. Always stretch before and after heavy lifting. If it looks too heavy to pick up, get a spotter.

But whatever you do, don't tell her she's "heavy lifting".

Oh, no no, I know, it's just that I thought it would be a rather formal how-to instruction thingy, not so... raunchy. There was even an implied pun with "pussy-footing".

Wow, this is quite possibly the most lecherously underhanded misogynistic thing I've ever heard. I'm swinging back and forth between being utterly shocked and completely entertained.

Ditto. Apparently, lying is the number one ingredient for picking up women. But I'm still listening. Just made me laugh aloud. "You look like the dancer, Joanna Webber. You've got the same grace, and blond hair."

Jack Handey does pick-up lines.

This is excellent source material for samples.

Totally.

kyrademon, when you're told to start feeling turned on. Did you not listen to the whole mp3?

I like the part where he says women really like it when men call their breasts "Fun sacks".

I love the way the record says you'll "pick up girls automatically!" -- Eventually you won't even have any control over it; you'll get home with a couple more chicks and think, "damn, I did it again!"
posted by JanetLand at 12:35 PM on July 22, 2005


There's a couple of singular mp3s if you don't want the entire LP as one mp3 -- 365 Days hosted (scroll to the bottom -- last entry on this page) "The Clothing Store Pick-Up" (which I found really, um, rather creepy, and "The Museum Pickup" appears on WFMU's The Happy Listener's Guide To Mind Control, which I don't think was quite as creepy as some dude being all "Hey my sister is the same size as you why don't you put this on, oh wow, it looks really sexy on you let's go get dinner and hey, you can have that, I'll give my sister a different sexy outfit, because apparently that's what you give your sister."

(Also, on the creepy side, but not so much on the Picking Up Girls side, I just have to share this -- If you liked Lil Markie, you might dig "The Big 'A'=The Big 'M'" by Gary S. Paxton (of the Argyles!) -- I think regardless of where you come down politically, I think people of all stripes can come together and agree that this is really really creepy and that Negativland needs to get a copy of this 45 if they don't have it already.

*scribbles notes furiously while listening*

Two thoughts:

First it was the 70's, thank god I was stuck in the world's outer region where disco and hustling was Hollywood material.

Second, the posting of the MP3 file is clearly a copyright violation. It would tickle me to no end to have this violation make to the courts so I "Picking up girls made easy" would be in the papers, on court documents and (too much to ask for) at the Supreme Court. "Your honors, I am here arguing for "Picking up girls made easy."

Then when the Supreme Court made it's decision, the newspaper headlines would read:
Supreme Court in favor of "Picking Up Girls Made Easy."

Right. And Liberace died of emphysema.

There's no real comeback to this sort of thing. Some people just refuse to believe that everyone else doesn't think and behave like they do, I guess. Oh well. Maybe it's down to a lack of self-confidence or something.

Hmm. I can't access the link - site blocked! But this reminds me of a guy I saw on the Daily Show way back when Beth Littleford was still there. He wrote a book about picking up women, and one of his "power tips" was to arrange his hands casually at his pockets and point at his crotch. It was hilarious. Beth Littleford ripped him a new one.

Because all the women are played by the actors' mom, who happens to be the only female who will talk to them.

As someone who was smack-dab in the middle of the target demographic when that LP came out I can attest to the mystique it had among teenage boys. Of course none of us actually owned it or even knew someone who did, but we believed in it still.

We, um, got better.
