It’s about that time. Tuesday, March 27th is the second installment of You Know What Really Grinds My Gears which is basically karaoke where random Peter Griffin-esque rants are executed instead of songs. The music will be provided by DJ Roz of Champion Sounds, and I will manage the hosting duties for the evening. The first You Know What Really Grinds My Gears was hilarious, so I am looking forward to seeing what folks are going to say tomorrow. More details are as follows:
1847 14th Street NW, Washington, DC 20009
NO COVER or DRESS CODE
SIGN UP AT 9pm
SHOW STARTS AT 10:00pm
Here is the link to the original invitation
Folks can rant about whatever they want, but it’s kind of an unwritten rule that the event is light hearted in nature. For example, here is a rant that would probably go over well:
You know what grinds my gears? Folks who work around the general public(cashiers, security guards, etc) with bad attitudes. I’m not responsible for your sh*tty station in life. Stop acting like I walked up to you at age 7 and said “Books are for suckers! You don’t need to waste your time on that hard work, sacrifice or ambition crap!”
Next is an example of a rant that would probably be frowned upon by the crowd:
You know what grinds my gears? All you DC b*ches. Especially that one by the bar in the red dress. Acting all stuck up. Can’t even appreciate a n*gga when he comes over & shows interest. You b*ches is foul! YOU FOUL!
It’s pretty simple. All we ask is that you try to be clever or funny instead of making yourself look like a bitter asshole. That way, everybody wins.
Also, on an unrelated note, Happy Birthday to the late, great Teddy Pendergrass. He’s up in Heaven hollering at angels right now. Yes. Literally hollering at them. Hollering from on high. Somewhere above the clouds, this is happening. Here’s to the memory of a soul singer who sounded like a grown man as opposed to the many prepubescent billy goat sounding jokers in the game today. I could probably turn that into a rant, too. Who knows?Tweet
