Ok, so a sure sign that you are getting older is when you suddenly find yourself confused by new random lingo. Just last year I had to ask Cynthia what the hell “Slay” meant, because it obviously had a new meaning from the one I knew. So, I understand the word, sorta, but I have yet to use it. A couple of years ago, Kess and I had a running joke about the use of the word “dope” because like others this had a new meaning. Dope wasn’t drugs anymore, it meant cool. Kinda like when bad meant good, but really bad was short for badass. So, starting seeing “get lit” and figured that meant…get fucked up, right? But now I’m seeing “It’s Lit” even here in sl on this gorgeous backdrop from Foxcity and I’m looking at it, thinking I don’t even know what that means!!! So, I turned to my dear friend, Google, for advice. In the words of Bixby, “Okay, here is what I found on the web…”
Urban Dictionary says: when something fun is happening or something exciting is happening and you and your friends are turnt up
oh shit, tonight it’s lit, there’s gonna be a party with a bunch of girls bro!
—Uhm, ok, so essentially its bad English for more bad English? I mean, turnt up? Maybe we could squeeze another conjunction in there while we’re at it.
YouTube pops up with Roach Gigz – It’s Lit ft. lamsu
You can listen for yourself and I’m not listing the lyrics. While I’m no authority on music, particularly this genre. I’m seriously worried about this guy and the name he chose for himself. Why do you want to be called a Roach? Not to mention the person featured, kinda sounds like some sort of mixed breed dog. I did listen to most of the song and I’ll admit there are a few parts that I found a bit catchy, but overall, I don’t think I’d ever listen to this song again voluntarily.
Merriam-Webster says: An old slang word made new again.
The slang lit has a long history. Its earliest meaning is “intoxicated,” and that shows up in English as far back as the 1910s.
WHAT!?!?! Ok, so now I’m fascinated and a bit amused, as I bet these youngsters (yeah I said it, picture me gray haired in a rocker, you fuckers) think they’re being all “fresh” and original, too. Alright, that’s it for me…I’m gonna take my old ass to bed…just kidding, I’m gonna go have pixel sex in SL….hmmm….wonder which one is true?? I don’t honestly know, but I know it’s ’bout to get lit in dis bitch! *laughs*
