Hey guys, can we cool it with the song abbreviations? Songs like TKAA and SIMU are fine cause we're totally used to them and nothing is close to those abbreviations. But then we've got stuff like the DBZ, which is like Dragonball Z... SFTU, which always looks like "STFU" to me, and songs that have the same abbreviations, like "TIY" is both Trust in You and Turning into You.

And seriously, abbreviating crap like AIHLIY and IWSFWY is just annoying.

Rant over. :)

When Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace came out, I saw "RAFRAG" so many times I began to start actually calling the album rafrag.

D/0 is a lot better than DBZ

06-26-2012, 01:26 PM

I've decided to type out the full name for 'Slim Pickens Does the Right Thing and Rides the Bomb to Hell' forever.

Never. We must right out the full name for Slim Pickens Does The Right Thing And Rides The Bomb To Hell every time! BagO'Shenan suggested it a while ago, and he's still practicing what he preaches:

Wasn't I the one who was lazy enough to write I Wanna Secret Family (With You) as in IWASFWY. :o

I agree... if you want to abbreviate try something easier like get a job, secret family, slin pickens, head around you etc. EAsier to type and easier to understand!

You know it's IWSF(WY). Why do people keep adding an A in there? Gotta at least get it right.

I have used abbreviations and I don't know why. I hate them. it always takes me a little bit longer than it should to figure out what ones mean. I am still trying to decipher one of the ones llamas posted... then again I just took a nap and woke up like half an hour ago so I am having a major brain fart...

That's what I plan to do. I was trying to make sure people who don't at least use the right letters in their abbreviation. It's a lot harder to figure out if the letters are wrong.

This comes up every now and then and I think most of us find it equally annoying. I mean seriously... I had trouble deciphering those pictures about the songs from the new album. How am I supposed to know wtf IWSFWY means? Why is it a contest to come up with a shortened version of Dividing By Zero. Its a short and relatively easy song name to type. Maybe I should just shorten all the song names.

My favorite Offspring tune is EotL, but the one I most want to hear live would either be CR or DY. What do you guys think? I know some of you are all about hearing LR live, but what about F, A, or A? All greatly underrated songs for live performances if you ask me... GIR has always been one of my old school favorites...

wait... when did we start talking about nickelodeon from back when it was still awesome? I love that shit.

I agree. I also like S and N. I is pretty good and D is a funny song. N is cool, anthemic and all. Love the riff in SE. Cool tunes run amok in the CD A. Love PTM as well. What about y'all?

Sorry for my Offspring song sin. Good thing you're always there to correct me. The aliens of 3000 BC thank you. Just kidding. They don't care, nor live.

I thought all of them were super easy except for these ones. They took me a minute.

I guarantee you got them wrong.

EotL, CR or DY. LR ... GIR
End of the Line, Can't Repeat, Defy You, Lightning Rod, Get It Right. These ones I got immediately as I read them. No need for pause.

For F, I finally figured it out to be Feelings. I had to go through all the track listings of each album in my head and I came to the conclusion that A and A were Amazed and Americana. Those three took me a while though, so I see your point.

I personally love the songs S, N, H, H, and S. Anyone else's favorite album S?

Also, anyone remember that AbbreviationBoy alt who came around several years ago and typed entire posts in nothing but abbreviations? He was a good alt in that he had a great idea and didn't overstay his welcome.

I SAID I SEE YOUR POINT!! Even though that wasn't too hard. I'm exposed to illiterate folk for half of the day, every day. I've seen much, much worse.

For example, a text from my friend:

"Dd i wa soooo tred tody lol left at 4 got ack at 3"

EDIT: My translation: "Dude, I was so tired today. I left at 4:00 and got back at 3:00."

KHWHD, AIW, and E are great songs.
