What does that mean exactly? I’ve never seen an episode
Fifties businessmen. Shit theme for blokes.
a girl will have thought it up so they can wear 50's dresses or something.
whosever party this is, i hate them.
And they've crossed the streams of my two pet hates - English people celebrating thanksgiving fused with fancy dress. It's a party genitically modified to piss me off.
hey get this: i'm going to a wedding the day after boxing day. yeah, wankers, but then we get a letter from the best man asking us to "count down the days to the wedding" by someone sending them a "self made" postcard everyday from now until then. our day has been chosen and we "must" post ours on the 15th. AS IF I'M GOING TO THAT YOU CUNT.
That's the wedding where you play your 'Get Horribly Drunk And Offend Someone' card.
And I'd probably burn their house down.
Storm round there now, kick her in the crotch and yell "Bitch, there's no chance of us ever having sex!" Punch your mate in the face on your way out and set the building on fire.
It's pretty much your only option now.
But it's a pretty good solution to be fair.
what is the point?
i cant wait for my wedding. everyone is going down.
The people whose wedding it is are massively self-involved cunts and want as much attention as possible surrounding their wedding.
The prospect of them having kids (if they don't already) is terrifying.
EVERYONE NEEDS TO SEND US BABY POSTCARDS EVERY DAY FOR THE NEXT NINE MONTHS. WHO WANTS TO SEE A DAILY SCAN OF OUR BABY?
That was probably a bit harsh. Sorry if they're your friends meths. Not so sorry if they're not.
they are her friends. but they're not cunts which is why i dont understand any of this.
i think a lot of people get a "bit" mental when they're about to get married.
You should probably play the game and send them a postcard.
I feel bad, so I've found an image for you to use - http://tiny.cc/sz2rp
but i'm not sending them a fucking postcard. ok?
as long as you turn up to their wedding covered in your on feces shouting "CUNT" a lot.
I am a bit of a OOOOHHHH WEDDINGS!!! girl but I wouldn't have one where it was massively extravagant and everyone had to look at me. I'd like to blend in a bit at my own wedding
...and I mean everything about this wedding sounds unbearably awful.
Who ARE these people...
post nothing but a link to this thread
Go smeared in your own feces and shout "CUNT" a lot.
damn you Harrison.
Toots? What have you done with Bamos??
(I feel like a dodgy porn director)
Now...slide your hand up his leg...
I'm giving him a reach around.
You don't want to ruin the shot.
not looking forward to cleaning the spaff out of my beard.
Just make sure it doesn't get in your eyes.
I can't have you squinting during the next shot.
and not you.
Don't be frigid.
Just relax and let Uncle Darcy show you the way...
i dont like the sound of it.
This was aimed at the OP, but in fact you should go to that wedding "smeared in your own feces and shout "CUNT" a lot."
- put on your suit.
- white shirt
- thin tie (some cheap shit one from Tie-Rack if you don't have one
- soak your hair in water and comb back with a thin-toothed comb.
- drink too much whisky
go as a subtle subext and move very slowly all night.
Next week is my ad agency's Christmas party and the theme is Mad Men
I was actually going to start a thread about it asking how you gets that 60s slick look
I've worked out who likes Mad men. It's basically people in design / advertising and women who want to watch a tarted up soap opera.
I wish it was an 'undervalued shit 80s footballers' theme...
I've only watched one episode but found it fascinating pretty much entirely because I work in advertising.
It made me very jealous of how easy it was back then
I also have a fancy dress party to go to tomorrow, but the theme is the 1990s. I'd much rather it was Mad Men, so many lovely dresses.
but being early 60s, the fashion is more 50s)
I have nothing further to add.
slick your hair
have a cigarette
carry round a glass of booze
Put tyre marks across it and a generous splash of fake blood.
Look dead and hang a sign around your neck that says 'spoiler'.
Image the Rat Pack, the Kennedys, the world of American Tabloid. The America that was left behind by the counterculture.
It’s basically an excuse for girls to see men in sharp suits and for men to see girls in hourglass-accentuating dresses.
black dress trousers
will this look at all right? I can't be doing with going out and buying a fifties style suit. Or is the suit the ONLY thing that would actually make it Mad Men?
in some weird twist of internet based irony go as LLB.
I've got a feeling you look like Mad Max anyway so it shouldn't be too hard.
HOW DO YOU SLICK YOUR HAIR?
not your own though
i think you just need to go for slicked back hair, thin tie and er, suit
if you're a woman, go for a block colour shift dress, safest thing to do
I'll ask the same question I asked up there - without the suit, am I going to get laughed out of town/the faux-thanksgiving television themed fancy dress party?
I have shirt and skinny tie and can slick back my hair. IS IT ENOUGH??
you can either be one of the real suits or you can be one of the the sexy, indistinct accent, almost definitely gay guys, kurt and smitty.
they are in the first series (and less so later on)and look super-hot with pastel jumpers, those weird collarless suits, polo necks etc.
I quite fancy wearing a turtleneck under a blazer. There are going to be a lot of gay guys there who presumably will be trying to do this angle as well - I'm quite competitive so if I'm going to pretend to be gay I'm going to want to outgay them all
Hopefully you don't wind up getting bukaked in the kitchen due to trying to outgay someone.
choosing my confession...
Get used to it.
Now, where did I leave my "I hate PARTIES" thread...
Mad Men if you fancy yourself as sophisticated.
I got bored of this show half way through season one. not much happens.
I actually enjoyed watching it, but it doesn't deserve the endless hype or praise its recieved.
Also meowington: they've not even filmed season five yet. :D
sadpunk mentioned season five I think.
so they were both at fault
That confused me a lot more. I don't even know how I managed it.
You're actually Brick from Anchorman.
Do you love lamp? I bet you love lamp.
then three hours reading every message board about it, every single review and episode recap. serious.
it's not even that its AMAZING, or original, it's just that you get totally sucked into it, like some kind of high-class soap opera (which it is, essentially).
A serial drama with characters who have relationships? It's barely even a descriptor.
Do I want to get into this argument? No.
it's my favourite programme ever
Crystal Meth, Pollos Hermanos and extreme violence. Win.
and we have to go as characters from the show. I'm going as Joan and need to buy a cheap big boobied bra from Primark and stuff it with socks. Also get to drink a lot of whiskey and wear a lovely dress. I'm excited.
No idea it was now a popular theme for office parties though, that makes me a little sad.
OK, I think that's all. Thanks for the suggestions.
Maybe Tuesday or something?
dressing up like don draper sounds amazing, he looks fly as shit
obviously if you're a tubby loser you wont look good but man, a party where the girls all wear nice dresses and i get to look dapper, sounds sick
I sharp suit, well fitting suit will look good on most body shapes.
We had to go round the table one by one saying what we were thankful for before the dinner - and some of them took it really seriously. I was last in the chain of 18 people and had to follow immediately after someone who earnestly said that their partner was “their life, their soul”.
What were you thankful for?
and then said the worst, most phony thing I’ve ever said:
“...I’m also thankful for this wonderful grub...come on everyone – let’s dig in!” I’ve never used the word ‘grub’ before in my life, and also, the person putting it on had to tell everyone not to start eating because she still had something else to say first
I had to go and splash cold water on my face and give myself a pep talk in the bathroom mirror. “Pull yourself together”
What you said sounds so incredibly cheesy. You could be in a rom com. I bet you were expecting everyone to let out a cheer and start tucking into the food but oh no, the host stopped you.
It's like the Zool voice coming out of Sigourney Weaver in Ghostbusters II. Luckily I don't know most of them very well. The few that I did know were disgusted
'...erm...so yeah....come on guys, let's just get stuck in and eat this bloody lovely foo...'
'no, don't start yet, i still have to say something'
'no..yeah...god, no, sorry. sorry. *lowers fork slowly whilst everyone stares*
I struggle with your accent sometimes
You poor poor man.
I'll be bitterly disappointed
that literally sounds like my literal worst nightmare.
"Lady Gaga". You couldn't get a more clear indication that it's entirely about the girl wanting to dress up like Lady Gaga and fuck everyone else. 50% of the people going were men. I sat that one out on principle
lady shitting gaga indeed.
Unless it was a really awkward meal at which I genuinely didn’t like anybody else at the table, there’s no way that I could have stopped myself laughing.
And told the host you misunderstood the theme.
but in the end, we just couldn't be fucked. It was just so boring. I need a program that makes me want to watch the next episode straight away but this was just naff. It was an effort to watch it because it was so fucking boring.
To the best of my knowledge there are no spoilers in this thread for Mad Men but given the final episode of the final series is due to air on Wednesday on the BBC then you probably don't come into a thread about a show without taking precautions.
well done theo.
'To the best of my knowledge there are no spoilers in this thread for Mad Men but given the final episode of the final series is due to air on Wednesday on the BBC then you probably don't come into a thread about a show without taking precautions'
what a wally
he's even deleted my posts saying that i was mucking around. jesus.
but still....my rage was mostly knowingly over-the-top tongue in cheek rage, as were my threats to create spoilers (and the spoilers themselves..THE WONDER YEARS FFS) but theo just decided to delete every single thing i posted in the last ten minutes, regardless.
i understand he might've wanted to delete something i said about the sopranos*, but deleting anything else i said it a bit silly.
*but, y'know....as theo says, if you don't want to hear a spoiler about a tv programme, you probably shouldn't go on the internet without taking protection.
i called everyone in the thread a 'cunt nut fart fucker' in capitals.
i'm like the guy the guy getting done for the airport joke.
I for one am working through my taped editions of the Wonder Years and, well, you've ruined my day michael_spoiler.
What do you think about that, eh?
And 'spoilers' are only really applicable for stuff that is reasonably current. When I was watching Mad Men I didn't enter threads about Mad Men because I didn't want to be spoiled. I've applied the same rules to all TV shows / films where I care
if you were worried about spoilers in my posts, you shouldn't really be reading posts on an internet forusm without protection
Stop being silly.
you're the one that just deleted all of my posts (whether they were actually related to telly or not) because...
'I didn't really read them in case they spoiled some TV I was watching'
i'm glad you're so rigorous when it comes to deciding what is allowed to be posted on the boards.
theo....you know when a post doesn't actually mention a TV show in the post, it's probably not going to have a spoiler about TV in the post.
why am i still posting about this. your over-zealousness has now made me do a genuine rant after my original JOKE rant that you deleted.
irony or summit.
i'm being a little bitch
we'll all be dead in 60 odd years.
are terrible, terrible bastards.
