  1. Roseanne Barr

    Well as i clearly stated above, i wasnt talking about Roseanne's comments per se, which were quite shocking, but using this topic and the previous posters comments as a springboard to talk about the world we live in, in the age of social media. Which in my opinion, is scary.
  2. Roseanne Barr

    Yep. And that's the bigger picture here, and how social media is ruining us. Everyone is so quick to judge and villify someone, no matter what it is. Can you imagine if when we were younger before social media was so prevalent, if all of our mistakes or bad decisions or embarrassments, were caught on camera, or retweeted around the world, forever in front of us, never going away, never allowing us to move on, being a permathreat against our jobs or mental health? Jeezus. I shudder to think of it.
  3. If That Ain't Country

    Yeah, they are really good. S.O.B. is probably their best known, but this one is good too.
  4. If That Ain't Country

    Smartass Either way, something deep! Better wear your little arm floaties for the show just in case.

    And, of course you can never have too much Waylon. This video is blurry, but much more sexy than the other one. (and sometimes it can work out for the rainy day woman)
  6. If That Ain't Country

    You know, I have a feeling something special is going to happen to you at this show. Ok, I've had a few sangrias maybe, but still, I have a feeling. Plus, we want video of you getting choked up at that song.
  7. If That Ain't Country

    J Dog, very jealous, enjoy the show! Ok maybe not country, but close enough and definitely a good song!
  8. Could not agree more with this statement. This is what most definitely needs to happen. C'mon parents of the world!
  9. Also, kind of carrying on Alfierose's point, I think we need to keep in mind that people deal with trauma in different ways...I think it is very telling that she talks about her experience in such detail..until we got to that story I was like, Whaaaa? But then when she told of her own violent experience it suddenly made sense. What she is doing is putting a different "narrative" to what happened to her..so that she could find a way to deal with it, and move on with her life. Some people use years and years of talk therapy to try and get over a bad experience..and relive it over and over. But what she has done, is take something that happened to her that was out of her control, and take control of the story.. spin it around, so that she could perhaps get rid of any debilitating emotional affects that could hinder her moving forward with her life in a positive way. People can become very adept that this, changing the narrative of something so that you don't have to think about it any more. And who's to say which way is best for an individual? I think she has told herself this enough times, that she believes it, and is in her own way, trying to help someone move on as well. It's certainly radical, and maybe she shouldn't generalize and universalize this view, but maybe we shouldn't be so harsh in our judgements of her, especially in light of the fact that she herself went through it, and found a way to cope.

    Cool! Florence is beautiful.. and if you're not gonna check out Axl here I guess the next best thing you should see is David.
  13. Funny or offensive? *NSFW*

    Coincidentally (or not) Fahrenheit 451 is playing on HBO - a novel from the 50's, a dystopian vision of a world where books and information are burned or altered so as not to offend a certain faction of society.. I can already see hints of this happening in certain statues and the like being removed from public places, so I really do hope that we don't, as a collective, start turning our eye towards art, information, history, culture, anything that was "of the times" in our past, and be so offended that we start to remove things from public access because we are using a modern perspective to judge what were different norms of society at the time. We are always evolving, but we mustn't be so "offended" at everything that came before..it all led us to where we are now.

    Yay, happy May 2-4! You know, I didn't realize our American friends didn't know what this expression meant, they have never used it! I guess I just assumed everyone did I am a little loathe to admit I don't even have my bbq ready yet..and I only just cut the grass for the first time this year today! So it's been more of a "holy shit I've got all this yardwork and stuff to do in one day" as opposed to relaxing with bbq and drinks Well, I did have one lemon shandy, very tasty! What about you Soon?
  15. Aw c'mon, lets give the guy a chance..he has some pretty big shoes to fill, I don't think any of us would really be happy with whomever he chose! And I'm quite sure those things were said to generate publicity, get people talking, and check them out. Besides that, Steven is probably ecstatic that he said those things, that his frontman is showing him 100% support. I'm rooting for Constantine
