I've heard of Fark but have never visited it. People who have, seem to object to it, but raise awareness of it whenever they can. Should I visit it? Should I motherfucking visit that site? From the comments about the site over the years here on Metafilter can I assume it's full of a bunch of pussy motherfarkers that post links to sites with mashups, remixes, retakes, and retools?

White girl, black Toyota Corolla. I used to live in a black neighborhood with a sizeable Orthodox Jewish minority (or as my mother put it: "between Moishe and Moesha"). Some of the funniest looks I EVER got in my life were cruising around in the summer with the windows down, playing...

a. Ice T's OG Original Gangster or
b. NWA's Straight Outta Compton

Good lord did I get some looks. But I adore both those albums, so there you go. There is something strangely satisfying about the song "Straight Outta Compton."

juiceCake : People who have, seem to object to it, but raise awareness of it whenever they can. Should I visit it? Should I motherfucking visit that site?

Believe it or not, you can't say "motherfucking" (or most obscenity) in the Fark comments section, in which regard MeFi allows more than Fark. On the flip side, though, you can pretty much say any concept you like without worrying about whether you'll piss off the anti-Randroids or the anti-Libertarians or the anti-Teabaggers or...

Hmm, noticing a pattern there. ;)

Ahem. Anyway... Basically - Just another link aggregation site with comments, like MeFi or Slashdot or the rest. Fark just focuses on... Let's say "Schadenfreude" and leave it at that. The worst of the web, but nothing even close to the rotten.com level of tastelessness.

My wife, whose taste in music generally runs closer to the Kate Bush, Tori Amos, Joni Mitchell, etc. end of things, loves "Straight Outta Compton."* Every time she plays it she sings along, shadowboxes and mimes along as though she's one of the dudes in NWA. She also went through a short-lived Lil' Kim phase a few years back, so I think she just likes to blow off steam to foul-mouthed hip-hop.

I grew up in an evangelical Christian household and, until the age of 9, was raised on a healthy media diet of Contemporary Christian Music (anyone remember Carman?) and Trinity Broadcasting Network.

One day, I was watching the 700 Club and Pat Robertson was moaning and lamenting about how vulgar secular music had become, how it was an abomination before the LORD.

"Why, there are some song titles we can't even say on the air, they're so profane!"

At this point in my life, I was pretty sheltered, so I'd never heard really heard rap music before. I couldn't even fathom a song that was so bad, you couldn't even say its name.

What did it sound like? What were they singing about?

My mind fixated on the concept and eventually, I came up with my own rendition.

It was called "Fuck, Shit, Ass" (the only swear words I knew at the time), and it sounded exactly like these clips. Not as much "muthafucka" thrown in, though. I hadn't yet advanced to that level of profanity. It wasn't as angry, either. It had a smooth Snoop-Dogg type of rhythm to it.

I'd completely forgotten about it until I read this post! Thanks, loquacious. If I decide to resurrect my song, I'll dedicate my first Grammy to you.

Some pretty sloppy work here. In the full version (that is, non-profanity included) of Gangsta Gangsta, there are two 'Damn's at 0:32-0:36, but we just get one on the edited version. Even worse, at the 0:10 (almost 0:11) mark of the so called profanity-only remix, there appears to be a word which is neither a curse word nor an offensive epithet, perhaps 'like'.

Good grief. Where's the quality control?
posted by BigSky at 6:12 PM on February 22, 2010


Heck if I know, Artw. I live on the other side of town in the Irish-cop-and-fireman neighborhood now (our local Walgreen's has an entire 'fake green Irish crap' section at the moment for St. Patrick's Day)... but I hope they do. Those are two of the best albums ever, in my opinion.

(Thinking back on it, I think I first encountered OG Original Gangster hanging out with fellow summer theatre workers. Oh man. Yeah. That was it. So that makes it even funnier... I'm in high school, working at the big deal summer theatre near us, probably on the production of Kismet, of all things -- I can sing that entire album, too -- and we're all listening to Ice T. Ha! Suburban Ohio).

A few years ago I was going through my logs and found some myspace profiles which were hotlinking an mp3 off of my site, and being myspace, they naturally had it set to autoplay, which meant every single time their page loaded, my site took the hit in bandwidth.
So much like replacing a hotlinked image with goatse or lemon party, I replaced the mp3 with this version of Fuck the Police.
Most of the offenders immediately caught on and changed their page, but there was this one kid whose page immediately filled with comments like "Yeee, thats whut Im talkin bout, thats the real shit, thats how we keep it real!" and so on. I was at a loss, thinking how do I actually offend this person or his friends? I finally found a recording of someone vomiting for about a minute, uploaded that under the same name, and that did the trick.
Kind of took the fun out of the whole thing though, so I just figured out how to disallow hotlinking completely.

No. Modern hip-hop culture, at least as I've observed it in the (dirty dirty!) southeast, is very strongly oriented toward novelty. In fact, a healthy dose of derision can be expected to be received by anyone listening to anything over a few months old. Being plugged-in to the latest trends and freshest beats is considered to be a marker of "street".

My nick, interestingly enough, is a reaction to that. The "slogan" that accompanied it for a long time was "It's not old!", with the implication that by being not-old it was indeed preferable.

You will never hear anyone in the 'hood playing Ice T, or NWA, or any of the others except as a lark.

Meh. Their loss, TheNewWazoo.

One of my favorite memories of all time is when I was sitting at a stop light, windows rolled down, blasting Ice-T's "New Jack Hustler", singing it loudly myself, when a car full of young black ladies rolls up next to me and simultaneously laughs and encourages me with shouts and chants. When the song ended, I yelled out quite proudly: "Well? It's a damn good song."
