@Mark’75- lol, haven’t heard ” make A” in a long, long time!! Hey Rod- maybe we should do slang words of back in the day??

 

Good idea, Volleymom2!  Although it might result in some brain strain trying to recall the slang words and popular phrases we used to use back in the day.

 

How about we list the phrase or slang – give the definition – and use it in a sentence.  Wow, sounds like a spelling bee contest.  Let’s see if I can get it started:

 

“No Can Handle” – Cant’ keep up –  “What brah, no can handle?”  Actually, I hear my daughter using this term.  But they follow it with “Randall” –  “What? No can handle Randall”.

 

“I going bag” – What you said when you were about to leave – “Eh you guys, I going bag”.

 

“Going steady” – To be an exclusive couple – “Yeah, we stay going steady”.

 

“Just trippin'” – The phase before going steady – “Nah, we just trippin”.

 

“Bad rep” – A bad reputation – “That club get one bad rep”.

 

“Rippa” – A good looking surfer guy – “Ho, check out da rippa”.

 

“Fast” – Guys who are smooth with the moves – “I don’t like that kine ‘fast’ guys”.

 

“Townie” – If your zip code begins with 968 – “I like townie chicks”.

 

“Ahanakukulele” – What you say to someone when they did something bad – “Ahanakukulele, I going tell dad!”.

 

“Crimany sakes” – The phrase our dads said before giving us lickins – “Crimany sake boy, whatsamatta you?”

 

“Lickins” – Parental discipline – “Get me the belt, cuz you going get lickins”

 

“You going get it” – Sibling threat – “Wait until dad gets home, you going get it”

 

Okay, that should get you thinking about phrases and slang words from the olden days.  (“olden days” is one).  So share with us your words.  Remember to list a definition and use it in a sentence.  And have fun with it!

    @KHS68 – Not quite sure why it’s called bolohead row at the bars. I heard the term “cheap Charley” because those people don’t buy drinks for the girls when they come sit with you. Bolohead row is probably the strip bars with a stage and a stripper pole and mirrors. Most of the boloheads are the old futs. They have a hard time seeing, so they have to sit right next to the stage. Also, heard that tipping etiquette requires you to blow your wad of ones when you’re at bolohead row. All this here-say though. LOL

    April 17th, 2012 at 9:44 pm #

    @Mark’75: I found this on the Ron Jacobs blog. He wrote “Da Kine” & “S Why Hard”.

    The “Big Studio” could be seen through the window located behind the RCA console, above. In the 1940s Hawaiian performers from Gabby Pahinui to Genoa Keawe recorded in that large space. In 1959, Moffatt and I founded Teen Records (how cool, man.) Our first session involved five guys from Farrington High School in Kalihi: Rudy & The Royal Drifters (below). Two sides, featuring the first Rock/Pidgon records, were released as our first 45 single. I wrote both tunes, the immortal “Da Kine” and “‘S Why Hard.” They sold well — perhaps concidentally with KPOI pounding out the record in max rotatation.

Later on during the “age of disco”, the rest of us found out first hand — da Vinci’s vitruvian man proportions do not always apply. LOL.
