I Have Questions. Who's Got Answers?

Just a few things I've been wondering about lately...

1. Has anyone actually ever heard a Justin Bieber song?

2. Does anyone NOT want to kick that Nationwide Insurance guy right in the sack?

3. More satisfying: Tootsie Pops or Blow Pops? Discuss.

4. Why do people comment on blogs/news stories/forums just to say "Who cares?" Do they not see the irony of their actions? Do they even know what irony is??

5. Related to the above, are stupid people on the Internet really that stupid in real life, or does some sort of dumbing-down transformation take place the minute they get near a keyboard?

6. Is it wrong that I like the music on Yo Gabba Gabba better than anything I've heard on the radio recently?

7. Related to the above, considering that I don't spend more than, say, 15 minutes a week listening to mainstream radio (and most of that is accidental), how is it that I've heard that stupid Lady Antebellum song at least 100 times in the past two weeks?

These are all valid questions that I'm not sure I have the answers to.

Which, basically, makes this entire comment as useless as those "Who Cares?" ones.

1. No! But I finally saw him on the tv the other day, and it caused me to clutch my pearls and whisper in horrified tones "But he looks about twelve years old ! WTF?"

2. I haven't seen him, but I probably do.

3. Heh. You said "Blow".

4. OhGodIHateThosePeople.SoMuch.

5. For the sake of humanity, I hope the latter.

6. No. Radio music is terrible.

7. I've no idera, I haven't heard it at all, all I know about them is that their name is a bit squiffy socio-politically speaking.

The Lady Antebellum song you refer to... is it by chance "The Ballad of the Late Night Drunk Dialer" (or whatever the hell it's really called)? Because YES, SWEET VALLEY HIGH, that song is on the radio ALL. THE. TIME. My iPod recently checked into the hospital for exhaustion because I'm afraid to unplug it in my car.

1. No

2. I want to crotch him with my metal crutch.

3. Tootsie Pops. I don't like gum.

4. I'm on a forum for my cell phone. You can tell the comments from all the 13 year olds "cuz da tipe like diz' and bitch that they've gone through 5 phones in the last month. Stop dropping them, dipsh!t.

5. Some ARE that stupid. I'm related to one.

6. No. With "singers" like Lady Gaga, Yo Gabba Gabba has GOT to be better.

7. You actually have the radio on. I have a 100-disc CD player so I don't run into that problem.

1. I've heard Justin Bieber's "hit" song because Aziz Ansari made fun of it as RAAAAAAANDY! Does that still count? What I won't tell you is, I didn't hate it.

2. I don't think I've seen this guy. I fast forward though commercials 98% of the time.

3. Neither?

4/5. And A LOT of people are really fucking stupid.

6. Kids get all the cool stuff.

And 7. I. like you, rarely listen to the radio and hear this song ALL THE DAMN TIME! Stupid country cross-over artists. Go away!

1. I did, on SNL last week. One song I actually thought was catchy. One sucked.

2. I have heard several people complaining about this guy, but I have no idea what they're referring to. And I watch a good amount of TV.

3. Tootsie Pops, obviously. I can't even believe this is a question. The gum in Blow Pops is the only gum in the world worse than baseball card gum.

4. Seriously. It reminds me of polls where one of the choices is "I don't care" or "I don't know", and it has votes. Who takes the trouble to say that they don't care?

5. I think people feel free to expose their truer (read: stupider) selves online because they don't have to face anyone. They also seem stupider online because they can have terrible spelling, which doesn't show up in real life.

6. I don't know what that is, so I will pass on this question.

7. I could say the same for that stupid ass Train song with all the "hey"s.

What's blow pop? Is it what it sounds like? Then no, too much work.

I think that Yo Gabba Gabba is one of the best shows on television. I am just annoyed that it didn't exist when my kids were young enough to enjoy it; now they think they're too cool. My six-year-old sometimes stops on it when he's channel surfing and thinks that nobody can hear him watching it.

I have a Shins' song from Yo Gabba Gabba on my ipod, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

I don't think I have ever heard a Lady Antebellum song. I heard a few seconds of Justin Bieber on SNL before I fast forwarded through his performance.

Penny said...

Well......No I have not heard Justin Beieber.
The nation has Beiber FEVER though.
I did catch a clip of him on Mtv Diary. He seemed like a little arogant pip squeak that I would love to kick in the shin.

Justin Beiber makes me want to gouge out my ovaries with a rusty spoon.

You know, so I never have a child as annoying as him

1. Yes. A couple of weeks ago, I received a copy of "My World 2.0" from the record company rep. I listened to about 1/2 of it. "Baby" (the song feat. Ludacris) is pretty damn catchy.

2. Guys are not down with kicking other guys in the sack.

3. Tootsie Pops... their commercials were better.

4. Because they have the need to show how cool they are about not caring... of course by commenting, it has the opposite effect.

5. They may be even dumber in real life. With the Internet, people have time to think things through and these idiots still manage to make fools of themselves.

6. Not at all. Now if you start ranking the music on YGG over that of Air Supply, we're gonna have problems.

7. I think it's a sinister plot by the government. At least that's what former SNLer Victoria Jackson told me.

Only once but I thought it was a girl at first.

I tune him out now. I prefer the Old Spice guy!

That's a tough one that I just can't answer.

At least you GET comments.

I work with a VERY stupid person....what was the question?

I only listen to main stream radio to impress my friend's kids.


luv u!!

BAD NEWS! Lady Antebellum is on Idol this week! YUCK!


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
