They're freaking everywhere. And according to newspaper there's over a billion in my area. I can't stand them, they're so annoying!

Why are you f*cking cicadas? That's something that's kinda frowned upon.



No.
They don't sleep anymore on the beach..

I've been terrified of them ever since three bombarded me and a friend as we were walking under a tree.

They seriously just shot down from the tree, hit us (which scared the hell out of me) and then lay buzzing on the sidewalk.

Since then, I avoid trees that make loud buzzing noises.

yeah those little guys can reach a pretty high decibel level despite thier size

i wonder if anyone has ever tried to incorporate their annoying buzzing into music/albums/beats etc. maybe you could make use of it? idk...

also maybe consider building birdhouses around your area so they can feast on the little guys

Yes their noises really add to the scare factor. I was just outside and stepped over one. Really scared the crap out of me, especially because it's nighttime.

>Implying Cicadas aren't awesome.

Can we not do this? Can we not format posts on regular forums like 4chan posts? It's bad enough that the rest of the internet has to deal with the memes that come from there, now things like this are catching on?

What are you talking about, I only just recently heard of 4chan, much less ever been there.

I remember being in Crete last year. Oh the droning!

And then one landed on my arm. *shudder*

Sing about crashing into shit and sticking to things.

And burrowing for years only to come up to die.

Dammit. Now I look like an asshole though

It's a pet peeve. I've now been made aware. Carry on with your discussions about cicadas.

dont forget shedding your creepy skin and leaving it clinging to fences, trees, etc.

also maybe the droning could be recorded and modified for a bass line/ beat or something along those lines

they should have called it black depressive suicidal metal instead. lulz would ensue.

Cicada Metal sounds cool though. but it probably needs some didgeridoo.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

I'm officially working on a Cicada Metal song as of right now. I don't have a means of recording guitar however, so I'll either have to exclude guitar or have someone else do it.

A year ago I visited my grandpa's farm in good old Kansas, and I was just driving this putzy, little tractor along when out of nowhere this ****ing thing slams itself into my head and I almost fall off the damn tractor in surprise. I was going max speed (3 mph lol) and this damn bug followed me half a mile home, slamming into the stupid tractor the whole time.

The on cicada found in Norway was found 300 miles (50 Scandinavian miles) away from where I live.

I would gladly never return to America just to avoid those little bastards. I hate insects, especially enormous loud ones.

Although the cicada killers I encountered (I don't know if they're called that, just ****ing massive wasp like things) were pretty terrifying too.
