Get it out me

It’s true, it’s you
It’s something that you do
Ain’t nobody has been able to
Get it out me, get it out me

On her 20 Y.O. album, Janet Jackson sings Get it out me over a simple synth bass and 808 drum machine as a proclamation of what other people can do to get inside of her and make her do the things she does.

Being someone with a fairly stable demeanour, I find that my mood and behaviour doesn’t have extreme highs and lows. That bothers others because I’m always cognizant of the reasons why I do things and the reasons why I don’t.

But, sometimes, depending on who I’m with, that way of thinking is irrelevant and I become a different person.

There are some people who get something out of me. Like a spastic finger on a trigger, there's a reaction - a certain behaviour, that's deeply hidden in the mind, comes to life. These people make me do things that I normally wouldn’t do: I’m lewder, cruder, sexier, flirtier, meaner, and greener.

Unfortunately, I’m not sure if I have the same effect on other people. While it takes something for them to get it out me, maybe it takes something else for me to get it out them.

Note: Is this just me, or does this happen to everyone?

What the hell is an 808 drum machine and how do you know about it? Something you're not telling me? If we weren't so much alike, this post would be funnier. I don't have extreme highs or lows either. And there are definitely people that trigger me....I like the cruder and flirtier parts. Boy is it true.

Everyone has their 'hot' buttons - and everyone reacts differently to them. I think that simply being aware of those things and people that make you react is probably helpful.

My behavior usually has an opposite effect on people. They are in my presence long enough to say, "what ever it is he has, I hope I never get it. Poor bastard." My day to day life is a constant reminder of what diet pepsi, to much caffine and Britcoms will do to a healthy fag.

Lewis: An 808 drum machine is the clap-like "beat" many urban producers use (ex: Jermaine Dupri's production of We Belong Together by Mariah Carey).
