I don’t get what your guys problems is really, with the show or with the performances. We don’t want more music on television? Sia put on some relatively interesting performances just because they aren’t mind blowingly genius art performances doesn’t you can’t appreciate them being a little creative and fun to watch.
To be fair you are an adorable pink pokemon so this seems to be more of an identity crisis on your part that anything. Also you never know, but i say the video is freestyle. When you freestyle common lines always pop into your mind here and there and he was just jamming with the music for a while not really being very fluid so I don’t think it was very prepared. I think the other guy wasn’t freestyling for sure but I think Gambino was.
Agreed. Not to mention this was an actual freestyle. If there is any more appropriate or common place to boast about being the best and better than the rest than a rap song it’s a freestyle. They both expressed they were better than the rest by saying the they’d kill the others, but I’m sure Kendrick was the first to do that so yeah Donald is totally biting…in this just for fun freestyle.
I never argued how excusable it is to wear a headdress just that when someone wears a nun costume it is usually with worse intentions than someone who wears a headdress, which is kind of like the opposite of what you were saying. It also kind of explains why you don’t see many habits at music festivals because most people are not trying to actively offend people at a music festival they wear a headdress cause the think its cool if they were a habit they’d be intending to make some commentary against the culture or simply mock it. I don’t think the original point was too off point; it’s not that relevant to me how many people the item of clothing represents just the idea that if we want to rally against people wearing clothing that could offend a culture should we rally against across the board or just the ones our homeland or race has personally committed genocide against?
stereogum is really going to regret teaching me how to make these memes
can we have a caption contest every week? If you’re concerned about it ruining the fun of the shut up dude articles then you could just not count them in the best/worst comments. Also you could just choose a best if shifty voting intentions is a concern.
Dawg my jack white meme was an icp dildo joke. It did alright +11, but I can’t tell how many total up votes/down votes it got.
I think your rebuttal to the nun argument is kind of off point. While the argument can be made that all stereotypes are negative because you know generalizations are bad, I would say the majority of people wearing these headdresses do so either purely for aesthetic reasons (they look cool, they look interesting, some might think they’re funny to wear) or they actually wear them in attempt to embody some of the attributes they actually admire in what they associate with native americans. That’s not too say that there isn’t some people out there wearing headdresses with more negative intentions, but I think it’s usually a matter of ignorance or lack of sensitivity on the side of the headdress wearer. On the other hand I would say most times non-nuns dress up as a nun it is actually intended to be complete mockery of, if not the entire religion or even religion in general, then at least of the practice of being a nun or the symbology behind nuns.
