SlothB77: Most overrated PJ song.

There are probably 125 pearl jam songs i prefer over Jeremy, yet all radio plays is Jeremy.


This.

Vodka Zombie: See this, all you crazed gunmen out there?

This is why you start your killing sprees with yourself. It sends the message that you're not farking around, and it gets you on the front page of CNN.

In fact, let this kid be an example to all of you.


Yeah, but your kill score sucks.
 
2012-10-12 11:35:41 AM
He was probably apologizing in advance for killing himself in front of them. If he wakes up they can ask him why he wanted to end his life and what message was he sending by doing it in front of his peers.

PS Am I the only person in America that hates Pearl Jam? The only song that I've ever liked by them was Do the Evolution, and the radio never plays that one.
 
2012-10-12 11:36:15 AM
This may sound a little weird, but I like to think that if it ever gets bad enough... well, I don't have to shoot myself today. I can always do it tomorrow, should the situation not improve. That's why I've been alive for the past fifteen years. It may have been this kid's "tomorrow", but since it was staged I'd put my money on attention-seeking.

I just thought of an explanation for why Pearl Jam prefers vinyl: it's too hard to make CD players run backwards.

"Hey man, did you know if you play Fairies Wear Boots backward it says Clapton is God in the second verse?"

OldManDownDRoad: FTFA: "No one knew what the apology was about."

Maybe it was like Richard Brautigan's suicide note before he blew out his brains: "Messy, isn't it?"


That sounds like a copy of or allusion to H. Beam Piper's suicide note: "I don't like to leave messes when I go away, but if I could have cleaned up any of this mess, I wouldn't be going away."
 
2012-10-12 11:39:27 AM
Radak: "Yep, all adds up."

That was my first thought.
Particularly given that the kid supposedly gave a little speech and shot himself in front of a classroom of his peers, but somehow no-one has reported what he said?
Not even in fragments or general topics covered?
That's just a *tad* suspicious.

Like just *maybe* the apology exposed the town (or at least prominent folk therein) as a nest of callous, bigoted assholes.

Always thought this about Junior High (Middle School). In my time, people were over themselves and doing their own thing in High School.

Why is everyone queering this kid out? There's no indication he did what he did because he was gay. If anything gay kids are more accepted now than they used to be. If he was apologizing for anything it would have been for disrupting the class like an attention whore or for being such a bad shot he couldn't even blow his own head off. That I would feel guilty about.

I mean, would it kill radio to play Rearviewmirror or In Hiding or Present Tense or MFC or Footsteps or their cover of Crazy Mary or Nothingman or Last Exit or Off He Goes or Wash or Drifting or Brother or Light Years, perhaps their most underrated song, once in a while.

Yep, when I think of tolerant places, I immediately think of Bumfark, North Dakota, population 300. (no pun intended)... Plus, it was National Coming-Out Day.
 
2012-10-12 12:05:05 PM

msupf: On a more serious note, who wants to bet that the kid was sorry for being or having homosexual feelings?

Or that he was the target for bullying and sorry for being a target.


He should be sorry for doing that at school. Keep that ish at home, behind closed doors.

its highly coincidental, but it may very well have been about something else. Also, don't just assume that rural places are bigoted. that makes you bigoted.

Since it's a Dakota, I'd think the parents would be more disappointed that the (potentially) gay kid doesn't know how to use a gun than anything else.

Since all you Pearl Jam people are here now, would someone please tell me what the fark does this mean?

Unsealed, on a porch a letter sat
Then you said, "I wanna leave it again"
Once I saw her on a beach of weathered sand
And on the sand I wanna leave her again

On a weekend I wanna wish it all away, yeah
And they called and I said that I'll go
And I said that I'll call out again
And the reason I ought ta leave her calm, I know
I said, "I don't know whether I'm the boxer or the bag"

Oh yeah, can you see them, out on the porch?
Yeah, but they don't wave
I see them 'round the front way, yeah
And I know, and I know I don't wanna stay

Make me cry

I see oh, I don't know why there's something else
I want to, wanna drum it all away
I said, "I don't, I don't know whether I was the boxer or the bag"

Oh yeah, can you see them, out the on porch?
Yeah, but they don't wave

I live in greater Philadelphia, so I am blessed that WMMR actually plays a FEW more songs than "Jeremy," "Black," and "Even Flow," but yeah, they really don't have much of a rotation considering Pearl Jam's back catalog is IMMENSE.

I can't find the video right now (I think it was from VH1's "Storytellers," but I can't find a clip of it without watching the whole damn thing again) but Eddie once got asked the question "What are the lyrics to 'Yellow Ledbetter'" and he responded, "That song has lyrics?!?"
