"A heady time" is a good example of a phrase that used to mean something and is now used exclusively in headlines about breweries. Actually, probably the only example.
In high school some friends and I got tickets to a DMX concert that ended up getting cancelled because DMX was on the lam for impersonating a police officer and he couldn’t show up to the venue without getting arrested. It was kind of disappointing, but not that much because I got a little story out of it without actually having to go anywhere. I don’t know if the tickets were refunded, but I’m pretty sure I never paid for mine in the first place.
I think it’s probably a good thing that this video of DMX singing “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer” didn’t exist when I was in high school. If it had, I’d probably have just gone around to various people saying, Did you see this? Did you see this? until I eventually forgot to eat for two months and died.
