    An ad in my local music store has two 15 or 16-year-olds seeking a "base" player to form a band with. Nice. :D

    I saw an add looking for a "drumbist" once when I was a freshman in college. I'm still laughing about it today. :D:D:D

    LOL!

    I never thought of that. "Yeah, I'm calling about your ad for a base player? Yeah...yeah, I own a baseball team and I'm looking for base players too. Oh...oh, okay. You meant bass players. Oh..you don't play baseball by any chance, do you?"
     
  8. no no no, what's on second, who's on first.

    i don't know!

    THIRD BASE!
     
  9. What? hmmm?:D :p

    UMASS Amherst, so....yes, yes it does.:D:D
     
  13. The "All your bass are belong to us" is from Harmony-Central User Forums. It's now an ongoing joke and it's used often ("All your [insert word here] are belong to us"). :D
     
  14. I'll break your arm if you say 'Who's on First!!'

    What a great sketch.:D

    Rock on

  15. I haven't seen the video clip yet, but "All your base are belongs for us" is from a badly translated japanese video game

    I think

    Do a search, you'll find it everywhere. The funniest bit was all the photoshopped pics which had "all you base" added to them. I laughed for days.

    I saw an ad today looking for a "FEEMALE DRUBONER", to play "GIGGS". Good to see Ben Towle getting a band together. :D
     
  18. You can see the transcript for 'All your base are belong to us' at www.allyourbase.net . It's from a very badly translated Japanese video game, not a harmony central joke.
     
  19. Here is the spelling challenged band!

    Sticko...the drummur
    Lo... the bayseast
    Ego... the guhtariss
    Boy... the seengur
    Moogey... the sint guy
