fade out

The "Fade Out" is when you slowly stop hanging out, calling, emailing, and text messaging, a friend or more specifically a lover, with the intent of never speaking to them again. The "Fade Out" when put into action correctly should take no more than a month to completely "Fade Out" the offending party. If you tend do "Drunk Dialing" it will certainly extend and possibly cancel the "Fade Out" process and you will have to start over. If you attempt the "Fade Out" after 2 months of dating be prepared for retaliation. Be warned that if you dare put the "Fade Out" into action and aren't fully committed to the process you will end up in a horrible relationship that will never end. The "Fade Out" works best when fading out men, however, women seem to be more attracted to men who use the "Fade Out".

"I am getting bored with John, I think I am going to 'fade him out'".

"Mike hasn't called me back in a week, I think he might be trying to do the 'fade out'".

"Matt is trying to fade her out!? Puh-lease I invented the Fade Out"!

bologna fade outs

Commonly found on large women, where the areola is large and bologna colored and appears to have no definite line separating the nipple from the breast, thus "fades out" to the skin.

Here areolas are so huge, you could make a sandwich with those bologna fade outs

Street Spirit (Fade Out)

My favourite song by Radiohead. It's been my favourite for so many years now =)
Probably their most 'depressing' (for want of a better word) song. I'm gonna stop talking about it and let Thom Yorke say a little about his own song.

With regards to Street Spirit:

"'Street Spirit' is our purest song, but I didn't write it.... It wrote itself. We were just its messengers... Its biological catalysts. Its core is a complete mystery to me... and (pause) you know, I wouldn't ever try to write something that hopeless... All of our saddest songs have somewhere in them at least a glimmer of resolve... 'Street Spirit' has no resolve... It is the dark tunnel without the light at the end. It represents all tragic emotion that is so hurtful that the sound of that melody is its only definition. We all have a way of dealing with that song... It's called detachment... Especially me.. I detach my emotional radar from that song, or I couldn't play it... I'd crack. I'd break down on stage.. that's why its lyrics are just a bunch of mini-stories or visual images as opposed to a cohesive explanation of its meaning... I used images set to the music that I thought would convey the emotional entirety of the lyric and music working together... That's what's meant by 'all these things are one to swallow whole'.. I meant the emotional entirety, because I didn't have it in me to articulate the emotion... (pause) I'd crack.... Our fans are braver than I to let that song penetrate them, or maybe they don't realize what they're listening to.. They don't realize that 'Street Spirit' is about staring the fucking devil right in the eyes... and knowing, no matter what the hell you do, he'll get the last laugh...and it's real...and true. The devil really will get the last laugh in all cases without exception, and if I let myself think about that to long, I'd crack. I can't believe we have fans that can deal emotionally with that song... That's why I'm convinced that they don't know what it's about. It's why we play it towards the end of our sets. It drains me, and it shakes me, and hurts like hell every time I play it, looking out at thousands of people cheering and smiling, oblivious to the tragedy of it's meaning, like when you're going to have your dog put down and it's wagging it's tail on the way there. That's what they all look like, and it breaks my heart.

I wish that song hadn't picked us as its catalysts, and so I don't claim it. It asks too much. (very long pause). I didn't write that song."

That song evokes a feeling in me i can't describe, it will always be my favourite radiohead song.
See below for full lyrics.

Rows of houses, all bearing down on me
I can feel their blue hands touching me
All these things into position
All these things are one to swallow whole
And fade out again and fade out

This machine will, will not communicate
These thoughts and the strain I am under
Be a world child, form a circle
Before we all go under
And fade out again and fade out again

Cracked eggs, dead birds
Scream as they fight for life
I can feel death, can see its beady eyes
All these things into position
All these things are one to swallow whole
And fade out again and fade out again

Immerse your soul in love

Fade out ending

This happens in music where the piece simply feeds out into nothing either signing to fade out or by using a decrescendo using niente marking

Fade out Endings are sometimes boring, but could be powerful and are always cliché.
