Listening Parties

Finally, a tupperware party for the male music lover. My buddies and I are already planning one. I highly recommend reading the entire article - cool concept and very funny....


Real Men Worship Loud Music / Like your songs wailing? Your vocals smokin'? Your cocktails potent? Try a listening party: "Everyone brings a specially burned CD or custom iPod mix (carefully considered and chosen beforehand) and everyone brings either something outstanding to drink or something exceptional to smoke or something rather deliciously unhealthy to eat. The latter is usually gourmet pizza. The former is usually fine rum, scotch, wine or beer. The middle one is usually illegal.

Someone has a very good stereo. Someone has a very good stereo with outstanding audiophile-grade speakers that, when played at high volume, will shake the walls and rattle the windows and peel back your skin without getting all fuzzy and distorted and annoying, loud enough that the sound they produce will easily prevent all discussion until the given song has ended and everyone can breathe again and grab another drink and say, Wow, what the hell was that? (This someone, obviously, also has very understanding neighbors.)"

Why just for males? Gurls like music too!

Don't shoot the messenger...the author of the article is the one who stipulates "no girls allowed". As for tupperware, we guys definitely need it.... I just don't know of any personally that have gone to a party to purchase it. Would it have been more or less sexist if I referred to one of those parties where make-up and skin care products are sold? :-)

Not shooting anyone! I just want an invitation, that's all!

Communication prof Nancy now suggests for future reference that the way to avoid sexism would be to leave the "male" out of the sentence "a tupperware party for the [male] music lover." Still works just as well and no girls will rag on you :)

Cheers :)

boy, i bet that ipod mix is going to sound like garbage on that audiophile system. oh wait, only losers care about what music sounds like. i guess that's what the liquor is for -- you can drunkenly pretend the music sounds better than it does.
