Video-games are notorious for vulgar language and particularly trash talking on account of the players. For my field notes I decided to research the trash talking culture of video games in a competitive environment along with the ritualistic complaining of its competitors. To study trash talking I enlisted my friends Jack, Carter, Colton, Scott, and Amy to play the competitive fighting game Super Smash Bro’s Brawl together while recording the results. Jack is an Asian-American born in Louisville and Carter, Colton, Scott and I are all Caucasian male college students born in Indiana and Amy is also Caucasian and we are all in our early 20’s. We all met during our Freshman year on the same floor in Eigenmann Residence Hall and became friends and often play video games together. What I found through analysis of my recordings is that during the competitive video game experience most conversation revolved around ritualistic complaining and swearing in the form of trash talking to establish a connection among the participants that served to bolster camaraderie. Ritualistic complaining, as outlined in Deborah Tannen’s Conversational Signals and Devices, is the process by which conversational partners exchange complaints under the meta-message, or the underlying meaning, of solidarity sending the each other sympathy as if to say “your not alone” and “I feel the same way” (165). This form of ritualistic or shared complaining was one of the most dominant factors of the conversation we had during our competitive experience as each person shared their grievances with the game. Complaining often came about through receiving an unwanted character in the game through the random character option, perceived “cheap” deaths, and the game play of the other participants. A particularly large amount of complaints were focused around the deaths of the competitors characters and often…...

Hello

...Hey hi hello First use Hello, with that spelling, was used in publications as early as 1833. These include an 1833 American book called The Sketches and Eccentricities of Col. David Crockett, of West Tennessee,[2] which was reprinted that same year in The London Literary Gazette.[3] The word was extensively used in literature by the 1860s.[4] Etymology According to the Oxford English Dictionary, hello is an alteration of hallo, hollo,[5] which came from Old High German "halâ, holâ, emphatic imperative of halôn, holôn to fetch, used especially in hailing a ferryman."[6] It also connects the development of hello to the influence of an earlier form, holla, whose origin is in the French holà (roughly, 'whoa there!', from French là 'there').[7] As in addition to hello, halloo,[8] hallo, hollo, hullo and (rarely) hillo also exist as variants or related words, the word can be spelt using any of all five vowels.[citation needed] Telephone The use of hello as a telephone greeting has been credited to Thomas Edison; according to one source, he expressed his surprise with a misheard Hullo.[9] Alexander Graham Bell initially used Ahoy (as used on ships) as a telephone greeting.[10][11] However, in 1877, Edison wrote to T.B.A. David, the president of the Central District and Printing Telegraph Company of Pittsburgh: Friend David, I do not think we shall need a call bell as Hello! can be heard 10 to 20 feet away.

Hello

...Hello, it's me I was wondering if after all these years you'd like to meet To go over everything They say that time's supposed to heal ya, but I ain't done much healing Hello, can you hear me? I'm in California dreaming about who we used to be When we were younger and free I've forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet There's such a difference between us And a million miles Hello from the other side I must've called a thousand times To tell you I'm sorry for everything that I've done But when I call you never seem to be home Hello from the outside At least I can say that I've tried To tell you I'm sorry for breaking your heart But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart Anymore Hello, how are you? It's so typical of me to talk about myself, I'm sorry I hope that you're well Did you ever make it out of that town where nothing ever happened? It's no secret that the both of us Are running out of time So hello from the other side I must've called a thousand times To tell you I'm sorry for everything that I've done But when I call you never seem to be home Hello from the outside At least I can say that I've tried To tell you I'm sorry for breaking your heart But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart Anymore, ooooohh Anymore, ooooohh Anymore, ooooohh Anymore, anymore Hello from the other side I must've called a thousand times To tell you I'm sorry......
