[coming home from dinner last night]
D: Oh, we left the bedroom light on... I always check that and the kitchen light when I come home, so I know if you're home or not.
Me: Sounds creepy!
D: You mean it sounds loving!
Me: I guess. There's a thin line between 'loving' and 'creepy'
D: ...yeah, it's called 'breaking up'
Me: What?
D: Breaking up. That's the difference between something being loving and being creepy. Like, "it's so loving how you're always there when I come out of the shower!"
Me: Ahhhh. Or "it's so loving how you like to watch me sleep!"
D: "It's so loving how you got my name tattooed on your butt!"
Me: "It's so loving how you send me sex toys in the mail!" ...wait, you didn't even laugh at that one!
D: It's funnier when it's not based on real life events.
Me: I guess...




It's actually a pretty fun game, and fun games deserve prizes!

So please post your own loving/creepy statements - our 2 favorites will win 8 each for a microbadge of your choice!

"One couple told me 'Oh we love that song; it was the main song played at our wedding!' I thought, 'Well, good luck.'"

When asked why he appears angry in the music video Sting told BBC Radio 2, "I think the song is very, very sinister and ugly and people have actually misinterpreted it as being a gentle little love song, when it's quite the opposite."

It boggles my mind that people think this is a sweet, romantic song.

It's a stalker song. And if there is any doubt about that, just do a Google search for "stalker songs" and try to find a list that DOESN'T mention it. shake

Well.. I once told my sister that I was annoyed that she was my sister.
Because if she wasn't I'd have found the most awesome girlfriend and get the best inlaws a guy could wish for on top of that..
I thought it was a brilliant declaration of love.. Rest of my family..
Noooot so much...

Follow Me (by Uncle Cracker) is one that really disturbed me the first time that I heard it at a wedding. I mean, it's a song about a guy trying to talk a woman into leaving her husband for him ("I don't care about that ring you wear..."), and borderline telling her that she's nothing without him ("negging"?). It's... very disturbing, and felt out of place at an event where they just exchanged those rings. But hey, it's got a catchy chorus!


Regarding the blurred line between loving and creeping, this just popped up in my Facebook feed this morning and I thought it entirely appropriate to post here:
How one phone number accidentally started an Internet movement

Yeah, I really liked follow me until i actually listened to the lyrics, then I found it so offensive that I can't listen to it at all.

and on a completely unrelated note, Clint, can you GM me your cell phone number.

Someone had to do it... and I've always considered Every Breath You Take to be a stalker song. It would have been a little creepy if I was the only one to think that... cool

Original:
Quote:
Se eu tiver coragem de dizer que eu meio gosto de você
Você vai fugir a pé?
E se eu falar que você é tudo que eu sempre quis pra ser feliz
Você vai pro lado oposto ao que eu estiver?

Eu queria tanto que você não fugisse de mim
Mas se fosse eu, eu fugia.

Ei, vai pegar mal se eu contar que eu imprimi todo o seu mapa astral?
Você corre assim que der, quando souber?
E se eu falar que eu decorei seu RG só pra se precisar
Você vai pra um chalé em Macaé?

Eu queria tanto que você não fugisse de mim
Mas se fosse eu, eu fugia.

Se eu disser foi por amor que eu invadi o seu computador
Você pega um avião?
Se eu contar de uma só vez como eu achei sua senha do cartão
Você foge pro Japão, esse verão?

Eu queria tanto que você não fugisse de mim
Mas se fosse eu, eu fugia.

E se eu contar como é que eu me senti ao grampear seu celular
Você vai numa DP?
E se eu mostrar o cianureto que eu comprei pra gente se matar
Você manda me prender no amanhecer?

Eu queria tanto que você não fugisse de mim
Mas se fosse eu, eu fugia
Translation:
Quote:
If I get the courage to say that I kind of like you
Will you run away on foot?
And if I say that you're all I wanted to be happy
Will you go the opposite direction as me?

I wanted really badly that you wouldn't run away from me
But if it was me, I'd run.

Hey, would you take it badly if I tell you that I printed your whole astral map?
Will you run as soon as you can, when you find out?
What if I say that I memorized your your ID number just in case
Will you go to a chalet in Macaé?

I wanted really badly that you wouldn't run away from me
But if it was me, I'd run.

If I say that it was out of love that I got in to your computer
Will you take a plane away?
If I tell you all at once how I found your card PIN
Will you run to Japan, this summer?

I wanted really badly that you wouldn't run away from me
But if it was me, I'd run.

And if I tell you how I felt when I bugged your cellphone
Will you go to the police?
And If I show you the cyanide I bought for us to kill ourselves
Will you have me arrested at dawn?

I wanted really badly that you wouldn't run away from me
But if it was me, I'd run.

Thy mercy, my God, is the theme of my song, the joy of my heart and the boast of my tongue. Thy free grace alone, from the first to the last, has won my affection and bound my soul fast.
