Source– PITTSBURGH — Every day. The alarm clock stuck inside the wall continues to ring. Since September 2004, an alarm clock hidden inside the wall of a home near Pittsburgh goes off every evening.
But why? Well, the homeowner has himself to blame.
Jerry Lynn told KDKA he tied the clock to a string, set it to go off 10 minutes later and lowered it down an air vent to help him find the spot to drill for a television wire. Soon after he lowered the clock, the string broke and the clock fell inside the wall.
“I thought, well, that’s not a real problem,” Lynn told KDKA. “You know it’s still going to go off. And it did.” During daylight saving time, the clock goes off every day at 7:50 p.m. ET (6:50 p.m. ET during standard time).
Before I go off on this dude, I will say that he figured out one pretty ingenious way to a mark a hole. Dropping an alarm down and listening for the sound may seem dumb as fuck but to someone with excellent hearing like this guy it probably worked like a charm and he was able to pinpoint where to drill…. until the absolute unexpected happened and the string broke, stranding that poor alarm clock behind the wall. Now maybe for the first few times, it goes off it’s like alright maybe itll die soon and you ignore it. BUT AFTER 13 YEARS, with that thing fucking ringing in the wall at 7:50 pm EVERY NIGHT I’m either busting that wall down with my bare fists or I’m moving a minimum 3 square miles away. It’s not like this thing is going off in the middle of the day when your out of your house, it’s at 7:50 PM EVERY NIGHT. Finishing up some jeopardy or news or whatever the fuck this type of person watches every night and then hearing…BEEEP… BEEEP… BEEEP…or maybe even worse its one of those that goes BEEP, BEEP, BEEP, BEEP, BEEP, BEEP. And how the fuck does it get turned off?! does it just stop after a certain amount of time? I would have no idea cause I am not psychotic enough to let my alarm go past 30 seconds without having a small freakout but this guy must just wait for it every night at this point. Like a cold beer after work or a good fuck on an anniversary, this guy waits for 7:49 PM every day just say he can sit up against the wall waiting for those BEEPS to come in right on time. -( . )
PS. The real astonishment comes when you think about the fucking batteries. What does he have standard Duracells in there? If these things are lasting for 13 years let me be the first to cop a 24 pack of these mufss. Lemme know man.
Billboard– Over the past week, Lil Yachty’s debut album Teenage Emotions has garnered a lot of attention. After blaming his A&R for allowing him to keep his cello line in “Peek A Boo”, the 19-year-old admitted to lying about the lyric during an interview with Hot 97. “No, I actually thought it was a woodwind instrument,” Yachty told the morning crew. The debacle stemmed from Twitter calling out the Yachty lyric — “My new b—h yellow/ she blow that d–k like a cello” — as the cello is a stringed instrument that can’t be, well, blown.
Yachty also addressed the slip-up during an interview with Genius last week. “OK, let’s stop for a second. Before you come at me, I’ma let you know. I’ma blame my A&R. Because he listened to that song many times and he allowed me to say that. I guess for a second I thought a cello was a woodwind instrument and it is not. And nobody ever said shit. … Nobody ever pulled up a pic and said, “Hey man. I don’t know if you know what this is, but it ain’t that.” … I f–ked up. I thought Squidward played the cello. He don’t. That’s a flute. I f–ked up.” (For the record: Squidward plays the clarinet.)
This dude is as real as it fuckin gets. He drops a line in his song about gettin blown like a cello thinking that the cello was a woodwind instrument. I’m admittedly on the Yachty Yacht right now cause I love what he’s pumping out and the vibes he throws out with just being happy and doing what he loves. So he didn’t know what a cello was, he’s not a fuckin music teacher, he’s a rapper and on top of that he openly owns not knowing what a cello is. Take me as I am he’s screaming, he’s not trying to front and make up some bullshit for the lyric because he is just young as hell and learning, along with everyone else, as he stumbles through life. One of his boys kinda dropped the ball maybe as they could have been like, “yo whats that line all about?” and then explained to him what a cello actually is but I can see his A&R just staying out of it and not wanting to question his artists work.
Props times a hundred for doubling down and dropping the Squidward reference. I am dying laughing trying to imagine myself watching Spongebob all those years and not knowing that Squidward is playing the flute. Thinking he’s playing a cello and taking that as a fact. Fuck maybe we should just change the name and make a cello the woodwind instrument formally known as the flute. Anything for Yatchy. Whatever man, this song has millions and millions of views and listens so who gives a fuck if he wasn’t completely literal with one of his lyrics, it wouldn’t be the first time in rap history. Still plays. -( . )
