Ok, so I'm graduating from college in a month, I live at home, and we're having a party to celebrate. I asked my mom if my band could play and she said that would be a good idea. Am I a nark for playing at my own party?

What's a nark?

If only I were the only one at home right now. I don't need my parents asking who Mr. Wiggles is.

Does "playing at their own party" read in the DSM IV or ICD 10 for narcissistic personality disorder? Probably not. Go ahead and happy birthday.

What's a nark?

From the Urban Dictionary:

"Nark:
1: To be a nark is to be someone that will report any misbehaving to a higher authority like the police, parents and teachers.
2: To nark, or to nark someone out is the action of reporting the misbehavior; also called narking.
3: To be narked is, obviously, the past tense of narking."

@OP: According to the above definition, playing at your own party would not make you a nark.

First of all, narc? No you're not being a narcotics agent for playing at your own party.

Second of all, that is pretty lame.

Hey, we're just trying to have a good time, narc. Why do you
want to destroy us?

Don't commit your hate crimes here. HATE CRIME!

I thought a nark was basically a tattle-tale...so no, you aren't. But it's a little lame playing at your own grad party.

How are you a narcotics officer for playing your own party exactly? Unless somehow playing will involve a team of SWAT to swoop in and arrest everyone with drugs.

TS is a nark.

To be vulnerable is needed most of all, if you intend to truly fall apart.

Cool bands don't play their own parties. If you had any respect for yourself, you'd hire a DJ instead. Ironically, of course.

If one of the goals (of many) of a birthday party is for the one that the party is for to have fun, and they have fun playing at a party, then mission accomplished IMO.

If you want to play at your party, then play at your party.
Might be good to have another band there though so you can at least mingle or dance with hot girls or hot guys.

Sorry for using the word nark wrong. I just use it to mean lame person. I also use the word melvin in that same context. To rephrase the question more clearly: Is it socially acceptable to play at one's own party?

I looked up melvin for the "lulz", and got this: "a situation where one's underpants ride up high between the buttocks. (Named for a person so stupid and unaware that he is comfortable with this arrangement."

Back in my day the word "narc" was reserved for people who told on you for smoking a joint in the backyard. I have no idea wtf a "nark" is.

No.

That's why I report every crime I see, no matter how small

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

It is a bit lame. Especially since you wouldn't be able to socialize if you are playing.

What I think you should do (if you really want to play) is have at least one other band play and have that band be the last to go on. Have yourself play first so that way you can still enjoy some music and you won't look like a douche by having your band "headline" and there will be less attention on your band so you won't come off as cocky.
Oh f*ck it,
I'm gonna have a party.
I had the blankest year,
I watched life turn into a TV show.
It was totally weird.

thats incredibly lame, not gonna lie. Its like despite having all the attention that comes with hosting a party, you want even more by making everyone watch you and your band.

Not a nark, just a total douche
No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable

Don't do it, TS. I'd leave the party if the host suddenly decided he wanted to use it as a chance to wank.
