Reggie Watts – Fuck Shit Stack

Here’s a little moment from YouTube Live (some two weeks in the past now) that I feel compelled to share.  Who says swearing indicated lack of intelligence?  Lots of people but fuck them – they’re wrong.

I wandered around outside the YTL venue quite a bit before the show.  Partly because I had no idea what I was supposed to be doing and partly because there was so much to see.  And one of the things I saw was the performer I christened the Post-Modern Beatboxer.  Because I had no idea who he was and the way he deconstructed language was brilliant.  It turns out his name is Reggie Watts.

When I first saw him starting I was dissing him as another bloody beatboxer.  Then the lyrics started.  He had me at “Yo, where my gerunds at?”  Then the swearing started.  At that point, I wanted to have his babies.

  1. I think I like this guy too. Swearing you can actually dance to.

    Are you seeing yourself as the exception to this consensus?

    I decided I loved profanity because of one scene in South Park The Movie:

    Cartman: “Fuck you, fuckin’ jew!”
    Garrison: “ERIC! Did you just use the ‘f’ word?”
    Cartman: “Jew?”
    Stanley: “He’s talking about ‘fuck’. You can’t see ‘fuck’ in school, you fat fucking retard.”
    Garrison: “How would you like to go to detention?”
    Cartman: “How would you like to suck my balls?”
    Garrison: “WHAT DID YOU SAY?”
    Cartman: “Oh, I’m sorry…”
    Cartman gets out megaphone, feedback noise
    Cartman: “I said, ‘How would you LIKE to suck my BALLS’, Mister Garrison, ‘k?”

    • blackcat: swearing and dancing – life is perfect
      flyinghat: it was special
      Alan: I certainly don’t believe swearing precludes intelligence
      custador: profanity is a wonderful thing

    I’m not a fan of rap music but, I realize that just cuz I don’t care for it dosen’t mean it’s not any good. Profanity can be used brillianty, if you’re looking for shock value. when discussing politics nothing but profanity will actually express my feelings. Lastly…. fuck 1950′s morals anyway!

    Brilliant break-down of creating art.

    Well, that was a good video, but his other versions are way better. He sounds like he’s rushing through this performance.
