I kept waiting for the beer. Do American women not drink beer?

It depends what part of the country you're in. We certainly do in the midwest, but overall it's considered less ladylike.

Hah. I just recently saw the drink video on New Years Eve for the first time. My resolution for this year immediately became "get money get paid". Now before I do anything in my life I ask myself the question: am I getting money and/or getting paid? The answer is usually no.

I watched the first one about his new house with the italian tile and I almost wrote: What an idiot. Im repelled by that kind of consumer fetishisation and his analysis of women's drink preferences only revealed what a moron he was.

But then I watched the insect one and I have to say, I love his enthusiasm.

Does he imagine his audience to be white or black?

As a white guy, I sometimes experience black language / culture as having the quality of poetry, to the extent that it represents a difference, a "reality made strange," a twist on the dominant model, etc. But this guy does have his own intrinsic appeal.

To what extent is he being ironic?

Haaaaa, I remember this guy.

A while back, I went to the freezer and found a single enormous blue ice pop.

"Hey, is this YOURS?" I asked my skinny Jewish housemate, perplexed.

"Well, yah, that's for the when little niggahs be comin' over!" he said.

It was a good idea.

I love this dude, and I don't know why. Instead of being disgusted by his weird method of attracting women with food, it was sort of cute. Like, "look, females of my species! I can provide! I will make certain no child of my loins ever goes without frozen waffles and sixteen varieties of mustard!'

Today was the first time I'd heard of Chi City. First on collegehumor.com, then digg, and now here. He's blown up all of the sudden, I guess. Those videos are hilarious. I love that he lives in the suburbs (with yellow fire hydrants).

I love ChiCity, and the bit where the remote-controlled police car goes crazy is one of the funniest things I've seen in weeks.

ChiCity is my New Favorite Guy on YouTube. I saw the stocked fridge video a while back and was amused, then returned later to find that the rest of his posts are equally amusing. The guy has some simple pleasures and a great attitude. I'd hate to see him go the Andy Milonakis route, where a once cute batch of home videos becomes a colossal waste of time and space on a TV network.

Every video I watch, I love MrChiCity more. I love his TV court show parking ticket evidence. I love his McDonald's guy. I love how he and my dad have the same reaction to insects, namely killing them and then taunting the corpses.

This guy has some funny videos, but aside from getting money and getting paid, his only life goal seems to be getting women. I subscribed, and then decided to unsubscribe to his youtube channel quite quickly.

I am delighted by his verbal imitations of women, the way he flattens the words, raises the pitch, alternates the delivery. It's awesome.

Man, everything from the dolla' menu and $7.47?
That'd be like $18.00 in Canada, nevermind, there 'aint no dolla' menu [there are 3 burgers @ $1.39 ea. Period] and I wouldn't be rolling on no 24's either on that wage. Is this Alaska with no taxes? Yo./

The guy's a laugh. But hey, all that cereal? Where's the milk? You gonna serve that up with vitamin water or do you have a stash of condensed milk cans?
lol.

Oh, and I think the Vice interview is fun, too. He's just so....happy? Like, he doesn't seem to hold malice towards the things that displease him, and he truly thinks that maybe if someone just tells the kool-aid customer service folks that there's some flaws in the bottle design, it'll all be cool.

A surreal urban-suburban education. Funny-ugly.

Enjoyed his attention to detail, his crib meticulously clean, delight in a nicely designed chrome garbage can. He's reveling in minimalist, elegantly lean yuppie luxury.

And at the same time I feel sad he is so incredibly disconnected from Nature, has no curiosity about the bug, which looks like an ordinary mealworm beetle that came in out of the cold. Hilarious he feels such fear for something so harmless. I wanted to save that critter and to tell him about What's that bug?

The guy must need Sex Addicts Anonymous if he has it stocked for a conveyor belt of unknown potential orifices.

Looks like to him the potential orifices, garbage can and tiles are all on the same functioning level.
posted by nickyskye at 1:41 PM on January 13, 2009


That bug is a Western Spruce Beetle (or Western Seed Beetle). Locally we call them stink bugs because they stink when you crush them. They have a long pointed, uh, thing under their heads (or things under their head or something) and, yes, they can stab you with them (it). They have been common in the Pacific NorthWest forever, AFAIK, but have been moving east for the last century. Here's a story about them in Boston. Everyone I know hates them. They are attracted to the scent of sap so if you have new wood frame windows, for instance, you may get hundreds of them piling up on your windowsill where they die. And stink. I have heard people muse half-seriously about immolating them with a butane torch and I know of one woman, driven to dementia, who chased around her house with a pair of scissors, snipping them in half and giggling the whole time.
I nodded understandingly through this guy's video. But I thought, "this guy's American, why not shoot the damn thing?"

That is hilarious. nickyskye come on, get a sense of humor.

LOL about the fridge full of drinks.. Mystic and Snapple, they used to be like soda (all carbonated) and now they're all kind of like more expensive Kool-Aid? There used to be a strawberry Snapple soda that was pretty awesome but they don't make it any more.

I kept waiting for the beer. Do American women not drink beer?

That is what the Smirnoff Ice is for. We American ladies do drink beer but I think he is going for a more relaxed approach to serving drinks. The Smirnoff Ice has a lower alcohol content that beer so with that there is much less pressure to get drunk and rather to just have a drink or two and relax.
posted by SheMulp AKA Plus 1 at 12:09 AM on January 14, 2009


I can only assume this is what I call 'American Joke' when it comes up on the multitudinous US comedy series that are shown. i.e. a joke which is not funny, but I can only assume must have been included because the US audience would find it amusing in some way. Except non-stop in this case.

Apparently, a friend of mine impressed and ingratiated himself with many from the US by simply repeating lines from Friends. His audience had not seen the show, but found him hilarious nonetheless, because IMHO, Friends is pretty much American Joke all the way through.

lower alcohol content that beer


Coming from a land where beer has around 4% alcohol content and Smirnoff Ice is 5%, this seems a bit backward to me.

Shit you are right. I never drink the stuff (I'm a beer girl my self) so I just assumed it had less. Sorry for the confusion, I was drunk when I posted that and forgot to look up the facts first.
