02:59 am - stand and deliver
I made the statement tonight that I deliver a particularly blood-curdling rebel yell that has stopped all conversation in many a distinctly redneck bar.  Upon being challenged to prove it - right then, right there - I looked around at the leather couches, the fireplace, the expensive cigars behind the glass case, and the martini list - and thought "fuck it, my manhood is on the line here" and I stood and delivered.

Jaws dropped.  "He wins.  He... just... wins.  End of story."  "Oh my god, that was awesome."

I love it when people question my redneck cred.

Current Mood: victorious

This sounds like the conclusion of every Dukes Of Hazzard episode.

Phonepost, please.

Hahahahaha. Actually, a discussion concerning the Dukes of Hazzard movie is what brought this on - the girls I was with were talking about wanting to see it, but alleviating its stupidness by getting ROARING drunk first. I said that was a great plan, and in fact if there was whiskey involved, I'd be down to see it AGAIN - but warned that there was not one. Single. Rebel yell. Delivered in the entire movie. But that, if there was whiskey involved, I might also be persuaded to supply the lack thereof, and the rest of the story you know.

And man, there is just no fucking way you can capture a rebel yell on a freaking cell phone. Or reproduce it on a set of shitty little PC speakers. (For reference, the original Bo and Luke actors didn't deliver very credible ones either. They did yell "yeeha!" enthusiastically, but... it ain't the same.)

See my reply to thesadpunk, above. You just can't capture that easily. I don't even begin to have the kind of mic you'd need to do a decent job of it, and PC speakers wouldn't be up to the task on the playback end either. =)

real rednecks make their own mics out of tin cans and chickenwire

Adding some steel wool cancels out the tinny sound a little.

It's true, I'm a member of a vanishing breed.
