Oh, that's a musical instrument! Until I read the GIF name, I'd thought it was a prosthesis for a cleft palate.

Took me half an hour to get that comment on, because I had to re-uninstall Norton Antivirus, which is a virus, which was restored unbidden to this computer after a recent OS refresh.

Am I the only one who thinks that, as a little boy, Trump got bullied on the playground after kids made fun of a bad haircut his mom gave him and he stormed off, yelling, "Oh yeah? Just wait, someday I'll be president and then you'll all be sorry!" ... and sure enough, 60 years later he's president, and now we're all sorry.

Veins are more typical, though many evidently start kind of randomly and shallow ('skin-popping', supposedly slang fifty years ago). People with collapsed veins, people trying to get stuff immediately to their brains, and incompetents do hit arteries, but it's evidently very easy to get wrong, that's a lot of pressure against which to work.

Ken, is there some negative connotation to "stunting"? Another DJ on these comment lines also denied that's what you were doing, but it seems to fit quite well the description in the Wikipedia entry,
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/7/16 11:22am -Ken:

Robert, there is no stunting - the web only 6-9am slots took over. In what way is that a stunt? Playing all Led Zeppelin, THAT'S a stunt.

No, that's a prank.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 11:24am Ike:

It's not stunting because it's the regular programming from before JM in the AM left. True, it was usually web-only before, but not when there were major Jewish holidays.

Stunting is usually the same as pranking (the same song again and again for 72 hours), or a temporary format, often something silly or attention-grabbing (one big NYC commercial station went all-Broadway for several days as a stunt in the 90s).

this subtly slowed down song reminds me that last night i was watching someone's upload of Decline of the Western Civilization on YouTube. For copyright cop evasion reasons, they cranked the speed up on it just slightly. I am so intimately familiar with its soundtrack - due to listening to it incessantly as a teenager - so it drove me nuts.
But I was too lazy to dig up my DVD and stick it in a player.

Perhaps Porest use of the text-to-speech was inspired by the Ken' routine because People Like Us rerfers to it as Andy's voice in her interview with Porest.
