In the future, when the ultra-light telepathic super-mecha, derived from the core technology of the Cybertronics “Real Boys” line of love children, are sifting through the ice wastes for any remnants of the long extinct human race that once created them, they will determine that this week was the week of Die Antwoord. What a whirlwind that was, huh, you guys? It’s too bad that we’re not allowed to like anything that was created by people with talent using their brains, because intelligence and skill show a definite lack of “authenticity,” which is especially important in South African Internet Hip Hop videos. Oh well. R.I.P. Die Antwoord. And R.I.P. this week!

[Ed. note: Good work as usual, everyone. Since there were so many comments from the Vanity Fair Caption Contest in the Top 5, the winner of that contest (who also had the over-all highest rated comment of the week) will not receive special palcement, but basically is obviously receiving special placement. So congratulations, incredimarc. You earned it!]

This Week’s Editor’s Choice
I do not care what their back story is. What they are doing is next level awesome and I support it. It is okay for performers to perform is it not? Is anyone upset that Jack and Meg White are not really brother and sister or that the Ramones were not all brothers? Just let them be great!
Posted by: Lew Zealand in response to Die Antwoord Is “Fake,” And So What?
[Ed. note: agreed! It was strange how quickly everyone turned on Die Antwoord when they learned that they were actually self-aware artsy kids instead of…oblivious meth addicts? Or something? First of all, so what! And second of all, I’m not even sure what the “reality” of them that was exposed as “false” was in the first place. And to Lew Zealand’s point, it’s not like anyone actually thinks that Lady Gaga is an outer space department store robotic mannequin sent from the future. Let’s all just enjoy the things that we enjoy and not work so hard to debunk them! Says the guy who spends all day writing this borderline-impossibly-contentious and sour on-line diary.]
