Oh man! Chris Roberts sent me a death threat last year for commenting on a VIDA piece. (Hi, Chris!) He called me a "Mary boy," too! He self-published a book for Amazon that I must absolutely read now. (You're welcome, Chris!) He seems to be trying to become famous as a writer by threatening everyone who writes online. How's that working out, Chris?
I agree completely with Dave, but then I also think we can dispense with pretty much every award-based institution, at least in the arts. Popularity contests should have ended with high school.
I can't tell if Adam is being sarcastic when he writes "discerning fans would never judge an artist solely on whether or not his music is pleasing." To me that's the definition of a discerning listener, and arguments over "authenticity" be damned.
Bowie was not entirely wrong?
@jolie asked for it y'all. Stop reading if you are easily offended.
Poop in a condom and put it in the freezer. When it hardens, use it however you wish. Voila! Puddin' pop!
Is this a good place to share the awful, fake sex act I named the "puddin pop"?
@deepomega I think the Truck Nutz one might be true :(
@KenWheaton Yeah, he got fucked by Keebler, but that doesn't mean his originals weren't delish.
@davidwatts Oh right. That guy!
@Van Buren Boy Truthfully, I hadn't intended it as a defense so much as an exploration of the real place. I made sure to point out several problematic aspects of the town, and the South by extension. I'm just tired of lazy stereotypes and baseless references in general. But maybe I am also touchy!
