P.S.- this is one of my least favorite tracks on the thing.

Just got back from Tokyo where I bought this album the day it came out at Tower Records in Shibuya.
Her last album made my top ten last year. While this one doesn’t have the barn-burners that one did, it’s still a fantastic pop album if you like this sort of thing.

Which I do.

Damn. Almost made the top ten with my first comment in close to six months. Was hoping for a glorious return. Oh well. Love ya, Gumheads.

Didn’t read all of that………and I’ll be honest….it’s because of your excessive and incorrect use of ellipses.

Good point, actually.

edit: I can “understand” why this upsets people. The fact that it does upset people doesn’t surprise me, but I’m more willing to accept it as justifiably upsetting after some thought.

I know you are in defense of my initial comment, but I actually like what doc said about the Purple Heart. That makes sense to me, and I’m willing to admit that.

Switching to the other side of the argument for a minute, I don’t really agree with what you just said because though you are right that one man’s sacred symbol is another man’s fashion statement, etc., the offense lies in using such a symbol despite it’s importance to someone else. Sometimes it’s simply ignorance, which is unfortunate, and can maybe be forgiven. But just because you don’t believe in something similar doesn’t give a pass to disrespect it without consequence.

I do think people can be overly sensitive to these kind of things to the point of ridiculousness. I don’t think Pharell meant anything by it and I certainly don’t think Elle UK did either. He’s apologized at least. But upon further thought, I can see why this upsets some people.

I feel what you’re getting at, mayo. And I’m not suggesting we ignore concerns and grievances. But I still think there is such a thing as “too sensitive.” Perhaps this particular instance isn’t necessarily one of them (I like what doc brownout said about the Purple Heart up there), but I was just using it to make a point. I see plenty of overly sensitive stances in varying circumstances that completely stifle rational expression all the time. I think sometimes we just need to chill a bit. Not everything needs to crucified for it’s potential to offend someone somewhere.

Anyway, just thinking outloud. Or online, as it were.

I imagine if this was Kanye instead of Pharell, people would still be licking his balls and praising him for his controversial edge.
