As I mentioned in my last post here on Soapbox I lived in California for many years, but before that I also lived in Scottsdale Arizona for 11 years. Although I don’t really consider Arizona part of the “” it technically is. One of the things that I always liked about being from the west coast was our slang, or just they way that we talk. I know sometimes it may sound silly to people who aren’t from the west coast, but for me it just sounds like home. So here’s a short paragraph using a little of my daily slang from back in the day…have you heard them all?
Yeah “dude”, we went out last night to see this band play and I was pretty “stoked”, because they “fully” “ripped”, and then I thought “like” “no way” these “kids” are “totally” from Idaho. How did they get such a heavy sound? I might have been a little “loaded” at the time. It was “gnarly, but I’m ok today, but the band did “shred”, “fer sure”. They weren’t very old either one of the guys was just a little “grommet”. He couldn’t have even been older than 15. Well either way last night was “bitchen”, the band was “rad” and we all had a good time, so that’s all that really matters. Oh, one big problem was that the “show” was “totally” “over the hill”, Yeah “bro” that “sucked”. Can you believe I actually went to see a band in “the valley”. Anyway we got home really late, and I’m “totally” “burnt”, so I need to “crash”, “right on”?
Note: some of these terms are old surf slang.
