Pants of the Week



Inspired by the recent discussion here about pants, I went shopping today and found these. No more fumbling in my pocket to turn the volume up on a favorite song or skip past one of those 'wtf was I thinking' tunes. The five buttons on the outside of the left thigh pocket on my new leather leiderhosen control my iPod.

Watch for me on public transit near you. I'll be the one yodelling too loud.

Right, Mr. Tincanman, if that's really your name. We need a picture of you in these, on the 'Spill. Then we'll all come up with a playlist to go along with it.

this is really me. The other recent picture of me with fellow RRers in London was a fraud, as they will tell you. I'm quite buff, you know (makes up for the absence of personalities and a tendency to brittleness in the extreme cold)

steenbeck said...

Ooh--a new (to me) Jackie Mittoo song. And a good one!

Did I tell y'all that when I went in the pants shop, the guy tried to show me this and that first. You k now, whatever he'd get highest commission on.

I finally lost my temper and said: Look fella, I told you the moment I walked in here exactly what I wanted. Now take me to your leider!

As for songs, I'm surprised none of you mentioned and of Robin Trouser's work - especially his work with Procol Harum, which i thought was just the pants.

Well, we could go with Baggy Trousers, but maybe something from The Sound of Music would be more fitting.

See, a sporran is just SO much better for this kind of thing.

"take me to your leider" - too funny!!

Blimpy said...

talking of ridiculous trends, Vice have done a "proper in depth investigation" into Donk:

It's seriously well worth a read!

Blimpy said...

You've all missed the greatest pants song of all time - namely, I Ripped My Pants by Spongebob Squarepants.

The quality's not brilliant but here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBUhjoMfYSo

steenbeck said...

Blimpy, just read part of that article. It's sort of depressing isn't it? Or maybe I'm crazy.

Blimpy said...

It is, which is why the donk raves offer the only escapism and fun to be had (oh, and the drugs too) - very sad.

Blimpy said...

just finished watching the documentary -good investigation.

oh yeah...PUT A DONK ON IT!
