okay okay.... so maybe the WWDD isnt that good.....(these are more of just a unique novelty than a bracelet to wear everyday...concerts and stuff)

how about.. 4 letter abbriviations

D.D.T.W.
B.O.W.A.
P.N.P.---->meaning "welcome to our home" in Gambian
W.T.W.E
L.I.O.G
W.O.T.W----->"weight of the world", now known as "leave me praying" or "ddtw"
D.B.T.P---->"dont burn the pig"


let me know if you guys can think of anyothers and.... which ones you like?

i think there are some good ones up there, they are more of songs/titles that you can live your live based upon.

According to "dave matthews band - music for the people" Nevin Martell;

"These were bits and pieces of older work to be found on BEFORE THESE CRODED STREETS. Pantala Naga Pampa, which means "welcome to our home" in Gambian, had formerly been a part of an oft-used intro to "what will become of me"....

If someone reaches a situation (unless it's maybe playing guitar or writing a song), and they ask themselves 'What Would Dave Matthews Do?', that is definitely troubling, almost as much as the "i'm so obsessed" thread.

The wwdd is a cool idea when you don't think about comparing Dave to Jesus. Depending on the person they might think those are cool or blasphemy. Its in good fun if not taken too seriously.

I really like the WWYS idea even more though. That's really cool.

Nope, wrong. That book is so poorly written.

3.6 What does "Pantala Naga Pampa" mean?

It has long been said that the phrase is Gambian for "welcome to our home,"
which makes the brief song particularly appropriate as the introduction to the
album "Before These Crowded Streets." After some research, however, it turns out that not only is Gambian not a language, but the languages spoken in that country (English is their official language, but the native languages include Mandinka, Wolof and Fula) are nowhere close to having any such words. Believe it or not, "pantala naga pampa" is Indian for "I have a python in my pants."

The story goes that there was an Indian chef who cooked for the band during the UTTAD and Crash sessions, who would exclaim "pantala naga pampa" for reasons that were not entirely clear. This apparently amused Dave, who would say it as well. When the instrumental piece appeared on BTCS as the first track, it was realized that it would have to be titled for the CD's track listing. Dave, who may or may not have then known what the phrase meant, thought that it would be amusing to title the track "Pantala Naga Pampa." And so he did.

EDIT: Also forgot to mention that this is the worst idea in the history of mankind. Whoever thought this idea should dragged into the street and shot in the chest with rock salt.

That's almost how much I'm spending to fly and stay in SF for 2 nights... but that will certainly be money well spent especially cause I didn't go to CP. Who gives a shit how much other people spend anyway??? If they're willing to do it, then that's their own prerogative, not anyone elses. You only live once

Or even better, Carter Beauford is my Homeboy.

it'd all be tongue in cheek though

08-23-2004, 03:24 PM
oh man, carter beauford is my home boy would be hilarious, it wouldn't be as fun to explain as a wwdd bracelet, but I understand why people are a little upset about that. I'm in for "Vote: Beauford for President 2004" memerobilia or shirt, lol. I think the original wwdd was a good idea, but it would feel like worshiping dave...

anyone who pays that much for a hemp necklace is nuts.

you can buy hundreds of yards of hemp for less than 3 dollars, and the jewelry only takes about 30 to 45 minutes to make with a little training. the beads can be a little costly but 1 bead does not make a necklace worth 20 bucks.

OMG, people aren't actually going to think WWDD every time, it's just a statemnt that you like DMB. it's not actually gonna mean anyything close to what it's supposed to mean, unless you really do think Dave is God.
