Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.
And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.
It’s great that he’s addressed this but are we really supposed to believe that NO ONE during the extremely lengthy processes of writing a song, recording it, mastering it and animating the music video wouldn’t have brought it up?
Excuse me but how the hell is spastic even remotely insulting?
So I just recently learned that in the UK calling someone spastic means the same thing as calling someone retarded, only much worse.
If it makes people in the UK feel any better, people in the US literally do not know this (like literally no one I have ever met and/or know). Here being spastic is usually meant to mean something along the lines of acting like a hyper-active child (like running around in circles yelling just because they feel like it please be quiet for just 2 minutes type of child). NOBODY here uses it as a slur.
Since Weird Al is a US musician and the US music industry is pretty non-international, yeah actually I think its entirely possible that none of the people who worked on this song actually knew that spastic was considered an awful slur in some parts of the world.
And I’m like 99.9999% sure that Weird Al is genuinely very sorry that he was accidentally offensive.
girls are so hot???? like i see a hot girl every 2 seconds. and a hot guy about every 2 weeks. and even then i’m wary because he might end up yelling something rude at me or making a rape joke or something

IT MEANS THAT CYCLISTS DON’T GIVE A FLYING FUCK ABOUT TRAFFIC LIGHTS AND IT MAKES THE REST OF THE UNIVERSE SO FUCKING MAD SERIOUSLY
I don’t want to hear about it since I am waiting for an insurance payment for a new bike from a woman who ran through a red light and hit me. Or that I am nearly hit daily by drivers who “just get in” through a yellow light. Or from when I stop at a red light and am nearly rear-ended by drivers who want to run the red light. Or by drivers who don’t stop at T-intersections. Drivers pull the same crap, drivers just hate cyclists.
Also, Idaho Rules (cyclists use red lights like stop signs, and stop signs like yield signs) just makes sense for cyclists, and especially urban cyclists. It requires less power output over a commute, and can keep you out of the way of traffic.

"Cunt again? It was odd how men … used that word to demean women when it was the only part of a woman they valued."
I’ve come to the conclusion that Sam and Dean would take one look at Night Vale and burn it to the ground, civilians be damned.
i’ve come to the conclusion sam and dean would drive into night vale and spontaneously combust from being exposed to sexual and racial diversity and women who don’t die within a week
Painter painting in our land pictures of only white angels
Painter painting in our time in shadows of yesterday
Painter, if you paint with love, paint me some black angels now
For all good blacks in heaven, painter show us that you care
