LL Cool J's favorite ride

Saturday, April 20, 2002 4:34 PM

I was just listening to 97.7 Boston, and they had LL Cool J talking about his new album. They stopped to give out free tickets to Six Flags New England to go ride "the Batman coaster"(notice how the GP can never say the right name Mine Racers instead of Mind Eraser, Batman instead of B:DK, Supee instead of S:ROS, big Beast instead of Son of Beast, Dash instead Boulder Dash).

Just then the LL Cool J said that while he was down in Chicago doin' a concert he went to this park. LL Cool J said "they're was this big coaster that was wicked high.....I was like boom baby down that drop...I tell ya, I was ridin' that cowboy...man that was twisted...It was real man, smooth baby smooth."

Now he also said back in 99' if that helps, what park and coaster could he be talking about?

Yeah it has to be the Bull, thats the only coaster then in 99 that was wicked high and smooth baby smooth.

Or maybe he was just wicked high when he was riding shockwave, so it felt smooth;)

1. You are part of the GP.

2. Enthusiasts do it to. In normal conversation I'm going to call Raging Bull just "Bull" and Magnum XL 200 as "Maggie." Honestly, do you go around calling Magnum XL 200 by its full name? Do you call Batman: Dark Knight by its full name all the time? How about the Batman: The Rides?

Oh yeah, using the acronyms makes you way cool and fun at parties.

In an amusement park, I would not be considered general public. There is a difference between calling Beast, papa and calling it the big woodie. Also, calling Millenium Force:M Force or Millie. Then there is the difference between calling the Cannobie Corkscrew, Corkscrew and calling it the Loop-de-loop ride. Now quiet before I crush you with my daddy's wallet


And this concludes your ebonics lesson for today. Peace out.

Soggy, I understand what you're saying, but understand that using that kind of stereotype came be offensive and cause a major arguement in this thread. Watch your back....

That was "Soggy" who said that, not Shaggy.

Be careful who you attribute that to, especially something that, as you said, could "cause a major argument".

Just trying to help.

My point is, why the hell can't people call it "Batman?" I mean, does it make you better or more fashionable to call it by its intitials. Some dude was talking to be me about "BKF" while at Six Flags Geauga Lake. I had no idea what he was talking about. I thought he was talking about Knott's Berry Farm but was lisdexic or something.

Ditto for Superman at SFDL. Sure, "S:ROS" might be faster to type, but give me a break. When speaking the word, use English, please. Don't be a coaster tool.

Samething, for a lab in science, my partner and I lost 16 points for gramatical errors. Why? Throughout the entire document he used abr. like btw, /w, FYI, SiC, etc... The teacher and most people have no idea what they're talking about. I'd rather hear Sonny than SoB, when I hear someone say SoB orally, it makes me think of the bathroom.

But the really funny thing is, there was NO ebonics in that post....

Funny, when I hear people say SoB "orally", I think they're *dissing* me AND my mom....(and that's how to respond to multiple posts)....

bill, still thinking that real skill in communication requires the ability to meet the audience where THEY are at...e.g., I'll use S:RoS @ SFA here on the 'buzz, but with non-enthusiasts I just say "the best steel coaster I've EVER been on"...

I love hot 97.7. They're so ghetto it hurts. =)
And Jeff, i believe the phrase "coaster tool" is the best thing i've seen on these forums in a long time.

Yeah, I've never heard anyone use the acronyms either. To me, it would be a lot more confusing. When I see the initials with my eyes I immediately comprehend but using them in conversation? Sounds like its stretching it a bit to me :)
