What Does 6/6/06 Mean to You?

It's another two-for-one post, this time for pointless observances and wild annoyance, two things spanning_time fully supports.

Some group of individuals decided that 6/6/06 should be declared a National Day of Slayer. Yes, speed-metal Slayer. How do you celebrate? From the official site:

Official Statement on Participation
Listen to Slayer at full blast in your car.
Listen to Slayer at full blast in your home.
Listen to Slayer at full blast at your place of employment.
Listen to Slayer at full blast in any public place you prefer.
DO NOT use headphones! The objective of this day is for everyone within earshot to understand that it is the National Day of Slayer. National holidays in America aren't just about celebrating; they're about forcing it upon non-participants.

Taking that participation to a problematic level
Stage a "Slay-out." Don't go to work. Listen to Slayer.
Have a huge block party that clogs up a street in your neighborhood. Blast Slayer albums all evening. Get police cruisers and helicopters on the scene. Finish with a full-scale riot.
Spray paint Slayer logos on churches, synagogues, or cemeteries.
Play Slayer covers with your own band (since 99% of your riffs are stolen from Slayer anyway).
Kill the neighbor's dog and blame it on Slayer.
As for the second observance, the following image says it all:
spanning_time does not condone violence.  Except for the funny kind like in cartoons.Emo used to be good. Now it's crap and it's time to rebel!

  • i wish i had known about "slayer day" on 6-6-06..then i actually wouldve played slayer at my desk at work and had a block party where nothing but slayer was played..

    although, that block party might not be a good idea..slayer isnt exactly the typical music around these parts..i mightve had my own emo kid beatdown day featuring me, if i'd have done that.
