Because You Always Wanted To!

Postby aleflamedyud » Tue Mar 18, 2008 2:52 am UTC

This is exactly what it says on the tin: the place to post things that you always wanted to do, but for some reason cannot or will not. If you can in any way do them here, do them.

Let's all be nice and encourage people to do things they want to. Constructive criticism is OK, but not just insulting people for what they want to do.

To start, I keep wanting to rap for fun, but I'm embarrassed about it because hip-hop just isn't a middle-class Jewish art form. Oh, and I don't live within 100 miles of a hip-hop club that would have an open-mic night. But I've still made up a stage name and even written a few songs. Please find enclosed my song about the 'hood that I rep.

Yeah, it uses a lot of rude words. That's normal in hip-hop. Also, this song is more humorous, tongue-in-cheek than most of mine.

Spoiler:
"Testchama 19" - MC Ya'aleh

(No beats yet.)
Tonight I wanna rep my hood,
Though it's covered in rusty metal -- not good.
My place with da graffiti writ' in bloods,
Where I did wear my brown testin' duds.

Thas' right homies: Testchamba 19.

(Enter beats.)
Testchamba 19 with pulsing pistons and turrets,
Testchamba 19 where just beans go down ya gullets,
Testchamba 19 with my double-fling bling,
Yeah, Testchamba 19 in dem Aperture Labs.

Chorus 1 (with backup-singer babes):
Cuz this was a triumph.
I'm taggin a slab here: HUGE SUCCESS.
It's hard to overstate my portal action.
Aperture Science: move the fuck out, because you're in.

The other Aperture testers, they always be dissin,
Guns we wield, chamberlocks, orange blue are the essence!
And GLaDOS always talkin when you don't want to listen,
You just mourn for the Cube till yo victry candescence.

Party submission position,
That ho wanna get laid,
The intubation associate, yeah, he got it made!
Never see the pimp, he movin' like Ha'Tzel,
Shadow to light; you never can spot tha transition!

Chorus 2 (just MC):
So go ahead and leave me bitch;
I think I prefer to break outside.
Maybe you'll find someone else to help you.
Maybe Black Mesa. That was a joke, Chell. SURE. Fat chance.
At least I do realize that, there isn't really a cake.

And that popo ho GLaDOS she all invadin' my space,
Like a Science Ace ever did get to some place,
She sends them rockets from her embedded sphere-headed gats,
Rats, bitch goes crazy just 'cuz I calls her fats.

Clipboards and computers from big to small,
No rewards and no cake, just energy hustlin'
Bustlin' round, chasin' platforms with portals on walls,
Bright pellets' made ya yell it: TESTCHAMBA 19!

Chorus 3 (backup-babes with GLaDOS sampled):
Look at me still talking when there's Science to do,
When I look out there it makes me GLaD I'm not you,
I've experiments to run, there is research to be done,
On the people who are still alive.

Ya'aleh! GLaDOS! Representin' Aperture: a Trusted Friend in Science!

(Sampled from "The Device Has Been Modified"):
Proceed directly to android hell. *ANGER-SPHERE-ROARING-SOUND*

Is this meant to include things you would like to do if doing them had no negative consequences?

Things I would like to do that I think there is a chance in hell I might actually achieve:

Write a bit of decent-sounding original music and perform it.
Write some prose fiction of moderate length, maybe something like NaNoWriMo but without the time constraint.
Write a "simple" computer game or two. When I say simple, I mean not as complicated as a commercial release, but more advanced than something like Space Invaders.
Maybe get back into writing poetry.
Maybe - maybe - start to publish my diary online, day by day, with a time delay of a few years, because I don't think I would be able to keep up a blog for its own sake and apart from anything else it would be quite interesting to remind myself of things that had happened to me years previously. Of course, there'd be all sorts of things to take into consideration before I could make a decision like that.

Do speed while at an orgy. Go ahead, post about whatever you've always wanted to do or try.

In which case, I would fulfil every sexual fantasy I could think of until it got old (which might be never). Note that this would not be to the exclusion of other activities, but I would quite like to be able to have awesome sex whenever I wanted, without any negative consequences.

You see the point of the thread is to actually describe what you would do. In enough detail that we know what it is, though probably not more than that.

You can spoiler it if you think it's that dirty.

Just to kickstart this thread...

I've always wanted to march in a Zombie Lurch.

I do believe that this applies to every person, ever. Possible exceptions granted for crotchety old people in religious vocations.

I'd love to be able to never have to do any real work beyond what I find fun and enjoyable. I apparently lack any real drive if that's the best thing I could come up with. >_<

I've always wanted to be in a relationship.
I've always wanted to appear in a movie.
I've always wanted to defuse a hostage situation (or similar) through some really amusing coincidence.
I've always wanted to do a marathon 3-person cross-country drive.

On a slightly different topic, something I'd wanted to do for some time and did:
Pour a bunch of liquid nitrogen down several flights of stairs. Finally got a chance to pour half a dewar down the center of a 4-story stairwell, and it was super-awesome.

Well if that is what you want to do, Passionate Marriage has some concrete advice on how to get there. I can't say whether the advice works, because I never had any hangups of that kind to get over.

Much of the rest of the book is in the context of monogamous committed relationships. But that is just the context, most the advice seems to me to be applicable for anyone in a long-term intimate relationship. Whether or not you're monogamous. (I presume that you're rather emphatically not.)

So you've said in the past. From which comes my presumption that you're not monogamous. ;)

Though I've known poly people in the past who are monogamous. Just not entirely by choice...

I've always wanted to cycle on the bloody roads, and not the illegal pavement. Why do I do this? Because i'm a wussified wusster.

Actually, i'm not that bad, but it'd be cool if i was confident enough to cycle exclusively on the roads, maneuver roundabouts, not freak out when a bus is behind me, etc.

I always wanted to go skydiving. I'm also afraid og heights. Still, I think there's not such a small chance it will happen.
I always wanted to do something heroic and to gain the admiration of those around me. Might happen, but it's not something you plan on (unless I construct the evil scheme I will save everyone from).
I always wanted to do martial arts gracefully. I think I'm a pretty clumsy person and to look similar to those movies I see would be awesome. I'm doing yoga, which isn't the same thing. I'm considering joining a martial arts class, though.
I always want to do outrageous things - kick a pregnant woman in her stomach, drive over people in the street, etc. Mostly just to see how others would react. I'd never do that... Also, I want to test my strength - see how badly I can beat someone up. Still, not likely to happen.
I'm curious as to the effects of drugs. Maybe when I'm on my deathbed I'll try some. Until then, I'll take my clear though and unpolluted brain (don't turn this into a drug debate. I don't smoke or drink, either).

This isn't something I've always wanted to do, per se. But once a year or so my testosterone must come up to normal man levels or something, because I get this huge urge to get into a fight. Nothing fancy, just a really good no-holds barred fist fight. I don't go out looking for fights or anything, but everyone gets into the occasional situation that would turn into a fight if they didn't defuse it, and I just don't defuse the situation. This year the urge started in January, so I'm sure the event is imminent.

Similarly, I've always wanted to get into a fight (not intentionally - just have someone start on me), and when they throw the first punch, grab their hand, pull them past me while elbowing them in the face, twist the arm behind their back and push them to the floor with my knee, then shout "ARE WE DONE HERE?" and receive a whimpered "yes".

I've got several ideas:

- Try out hardcore drugs. I want to know what heroine and crack really feel like. Without those unfortunate life-ruining side effects.
- Do a time study where I'm totally isolated and just eat and sleep whenever it feels right without regard to a clock.
- Live for a year sealed in a Super Target. I think the first thing I would do would be to make a giant pillow pit with bunch of TVs around it.
- Get arrested for being in a brawl at a hockey game. I really hope it's against some Red Wings or Sabres fans. They're the worst.

One that I dreamed about and finally did:
- Make a big bowl full of all the different kinds of Skittles - original, wild berry, tropical, smoothie, carnival.

I am torn between wanting to have a career in helping kids or singing CCM.

My wish is to be able to sing and play the guitar, and to perform on stage for people. I'm learning to play the guitar, and my boyfriend's father said that he could help me get that kind of job. But I doubt I'll ever do it.

OK, I'm going to do mine now by quoting my favorite rapper. Sing it with me, man!

I always wanted to do martial arts gracefully. I think I'm a pretty clumsy person and to look similar to those movies I see would be awesome. I'm doing yoga, which isn't the same thing. I'm considering joining a martial arts class, though.

Pilots on a jet get incapacitated somehow, and I'm the only one who can land the plane. That'd be awesome. (I can think of at least two movies where that happens, though.)

Enough is ENOUGH! I HAVE HAD IT WITH THESE MOTHER-FUCKING SNAKES ON THIS MOTHER-FUCKING PLANE!!!

Yeah, I was in intelligence (I'm 25). I got to help in some circumvent way, but I mean really save people. :)
