Nope Murdock, the plural of MP3 is MP3s, not MP3’s.  The latter spelling indicates the possessive (e.g. John’s car.).

so apparently if something is gay, which may or may not be true considering that inanimate objects are not sexually much less even organically active and therefore cannot have a sexual orientation, then they are not cool or worthy of respect.
This new development intrigues me, I wonder what the dictionary has to say about it….

give it up you uneducated mainstream f**** things like pual frank ipod cases or diesel jeans aren’t designed or marketed for you anyway

making fun of its sexual orientation isn’t going to hurt its feelings

I’m from Australia, and over here Paul Frank is a rather well-known name (and the monkey design) many of us (teenage girls) like - not just Japanese gals >_<

what is wrong with making word’s possessive? everybodys doing it. so much fuss’ about putting apostrophe’s in the wrong places’...

my cd’s don’t mind if they are always spelled incorrectly, mp3’s dont, so why should we, as rapists of the english lingueage?

In some cases, an apostrophe does not indicate a possessive. It is sometimes correct to make a word composed of caps or numbers plural with an apostrophe. Example: A’s.

I’m right behind (giggle) thescenehatesyou on the ‘gay’ issue.

Any of you guys who are afraid of anything camp are prob acting extra macho because you’ve got something to hide.

It doesn’t stop Paul Frank being a dodgy brand though.

Call me when Maharishi or Red Dot bring out an Ipod case.

“In some cases, an apostrophe does not indicate a possessive. It is sometimes correct to make a word composed of caps or numbers plural with an apostrophe. Example: A’s.”

It may be common practice, but that does not mean it is grammatically correct.  The average English speaker butchers the English language all the time.

prescriptive rules of grammar don’t exist
their only usae is in writing where they can help to create a standard format so people can understand what their reading…but there’s no normative application of the rightness or wrongness of certain rules or local usages.
That’s why different morphological rules can exist in different areas despite the fact the language spoken and written is the same.
Anyone who thinks any different is a go****n imperialist

I find it’s most Englishg speaking Americans who butcher the English language.

im not gay, i love paul frank. i bought the case on the bottom and everywhere i go with it i get compliments. from girls, and guys.  mannn i wish i were as machoo and kEWL as YELLOFEVER.

apostrophes have, for a long time, been used to indicate plurals of single letters or acronyms. mp3’s and mp3s are both correct.

did everythingyourenglishteachertaughtyouisalie’s post get censored because it was blasphemous? or did s/he censor it her/himself? jesus fucking christ!

i don’t think that paul frank is necessarily for gay men or japanese girls, it’s just for consumer whores with little taste. having said that, the second case has quite a cool design, if the colours are a bit vomitous.

oh no they dont: i don’t think you could call what americans speak english, i consider “american” an entirely different language ;)

I thought it was a pretty nice case.. since I (and most other girls my age) like Paul Frank stuff.

Posted by Syph on September 25, 2004 at 5:01 AM (CDT)


there is what I want to say:
-that paul frank are not only for japnanese girl(not all japanese girl like hello kitty, that is a lie),and gay people.That is just some stereotype that some people created.Paul Frank is made by a guy call Paul Frank in the U.S. (i stress U.S. not United State of America because U.S. is not the only country in North America and I am not gay). IF YOU DON’T LIKE PAUL FRANK THEN DON’T BUY IT.
-ziplock bag with ipod is for people who don’t know plastic bag can scratch the ipod and doesn’t protect ipod from physical impact.
-finally someone is making ipod case for female or metrosexual(mean guy that are not gay but likes to take care of himself) ipod user (for those that don’t know, there are female ipod user)
-the language english doesn’t mean american english. English subdivide into many localize version of english such as french fries in american, in UK is chips, Z is pronouce zed in most other english speaking country not “C”.
-this site is one of the most well design site is visit. Making a good web site is not easy.
-mp3"s is right like it’s is “it is”
- this web site is made by a person that have too much rage and need professional help
- “You music Pirates?” pirate is an adjective for the type of pirate not steal music.
-hope my language is not too complicated for those are uneducated and too offensive

its called retro! its urban, its funky, its Paul Frank! Lay off on the gay-bashing. if you don’t like it, don’t buy it, all the more for those of us who appreciate individuality over looking like a stereotypical Britney or Justin. Blech.

this Mp3 case is awesome and like tabitha said “if you don’t like it, dont buy it”..all the more for me. <3

These cases are awful.  I have had one for a week, and the case came apart, and the glue holding the felt to the inside of the case got all over my iPod making me have to clean it for an hour just to save my iPod.  This is a piece of crap.  Get an iSkin instead.

Posted by Derek on October 23, 2004 at 3:03 AM (CDT)


Derek, same thing happened to me, I got glue all over the side of my Ipod.  What did you use to clean it up with?  I’m afraid to scratch up my Ipod.

This case is awful and feels like cheap quality.  Don’t buy it.
