Holla Atcha Boi

Is that really an acceptable phrase?

I know some bloggers look disapprovingly upon those of us who see fit to forgo formality, writing and typing in the same way we speak, but...
does anyone actually talk like that??

It's baffling.

'Well', 'um' and 'like' suddenly pale in comparison.

in my life i haven't yet met a person with perfect grammar and sentance structure. i mean isnt thats what is kind of cool in society that people thing,talk, and write differently. if everyone did that all the same it would be boring.

No, I don't find this sort of parlance cool at all.
I don't find well-written essays a bore and have in fact known a multitude of skilled litterateurs who exhibit no inability to use proper English.
What you have to say should sufficiently differentiate you from the masses.
Illiteracy is no way to showcase uniquity.

That was very insightful.

However, your pov conflicts with the intolerance theme we have adopted here at blogfart.

I don't know what you mean about Bob Dylan; the man is a poetic genius.
It's his voice that is less than honed. His writing is well above par.

I think it's dangerous to encourage illiteracy. We're turning into a culture that identifies itself with illiteracy and materialism. If there isn't a standard format for the English language then how the fuck are you supposed to figure out what everyone is saying. We should all just adopt our own speaking habits and expect people to be able to communicate with us? Half the time I can't even understand that shit and the other half I don't bother because it strikes me as highly unintelligent--at some point the communicator has some responsibility to convey his/her message to the audience and this requires taking into consideration the audience itself. If you want to communicate specifically with retarded high-school students, then I see no problem with talking like one. If you desire actual respect, using real words might help.

I completely agree, we need to stop this. It's that God damn rap music. It's making people retarded. It seems as everyone is listening to that shit. That nigger 50 cent sold 1 million records in one week. Our slow decline has turned into a complete fall. The end is nigh! Follow Etherealism and you shall thus find salvation!

I am particularly bothered my phrases like "n e 1" That profound laziness of thought just baffles me. Though I have a bad habit of us "em" instead of them when I'm blogging (as in "screw em") I like to put that down as a bit of the rural illinois dialect that crept into my speach pattern while I was living out that way.

Critical Darling- Precisely. There's nothing left to be said.

Rich- You are SO right! Why do people type like they're customizing a license plate??
I think I probably write 'um' or 'uh' more than I say actually say them. But somehow I have deluded myself into believing that it's far from phonetic spelling and abbreviations (or whatever you might call the letter number combinations).
