(Daily Mail)   Man who was deaf breaks down as he hears music for the first time, describes it as being "like the first time you kiss a girl". So, he listened to music for the first time with his kind of ugly cousin in a closet at a family reunion?   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 117

FTFA:

Then, a month ago he popped a brand new pair of bright orange, state-of-the art hearing aids into his ears and his world was changed forever. He... turned on Devo and an epiphany occurred.

That when a problem comes along, you must whip it?

Filmmaker cries after first listening to Mozart's Requiem, his fist musical experience

I'd cry too if you tried to shove Mozart up my ass.

It's not all easy listening crap out there, deaf guy. Some music is actually challenging and engaging. Some music reveals its beauty and depth only to those who are willing to accept it on its own terms.

Case in point

Your face is deaf.

And somewhere an angry deaf person is cursing him.

Just like kissing a girl?

Phonak? Is that a brand of vodak?

I used to have a deaf roommate and when she'd masturbate she'd make the weirdest sex noises I have ever heard.

Well, actually, it sounds more like GNNNAM SUMMMNABISSSSHHHHH, but we get the point.

/I'm still surprised there are hardcore deaf people out there who feel that it's an abomination for someone deaf to want to be able to hear.

Are capital-D Deaf people still a 'thing'? I haven't heard anything about them recently.
 
2012-08-26 06:49:05 PM  
Find a better reference, subby. Nobody on Fark has ever kissed a girl.

Also, if he would have listened to this, he probably would have chosen to go back to being deaf.

Excellent question. That's a friend that should be beaten with a phonograph.

There certainly a lot of Capital-R Dumb people around though. Mostly pretending to be legislators.

Apple could do a great public relations coup and avail this guy to all the iTunes songs in the catalog for free, and also help him sell his films.

Although they do a great job of not listening..

While I hate dubstep with the power of a million suns, this piano version of a Skrillex song is pretty good.

It's a culture thing, sort like when a friend gives up his American citizenship and heads off to, I don't know, France or something.
/Wasn't talking about you, Mitt. I swear, I won't tell all the USA's Farkers that you're fluent in Franc(squiggly line)ais.

FTA: 'I want to sit down, and when I hear the Beatles for the first time, I want to really hear the Beatles.'


It'd be funny if they didn't live up to the hype for him.

Hopefully, though, one of his friends will play him some pre-Beatles music first so he can understand why they were such a big deal. Hopefully he will also play them in order.

And hopefully, someone will play him "Pet Sounds," just because it's such a wonderful album.

Wait til he listens to Tom Waits, he'll rip those orange Phonaks out faster than I want to bang Shoshannah Stern.

Guy discovers music for the first time, and he's now a Devo fan. Obviously, the Spudboys were doing something right.

Duty Now for the Future, formerly deaf guy.

He cried the first time he kissed a girl?

Good, good. Dubstep must be ridiculed at every opportunity, it deserves nothing less.

Also would recommend Pogo's Fresh Prince and Alice re-mixes to the New-Music-Hearing Guy.

Would recommend those to anyone that hasn't yet heard them. They're kind of similar but good for background noise, drug use, or if you just want something to lift your spirits.
