1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Probably for the same reason he didn't think T Swift deserved the award.

    Yes but Beck is 1 million times the musician and artist that both of them are. Taylor Swift and Beyonce are recording artists. They ain't be writin shit, nahmean?

    I thought Taylor Swift wrote some of her early stuff before she realized that letting Max Martin do it all for you is the ticket to the big bucks.

    Every time I hear Beck, I think about the Futurama episode.

    Beck seems to be taking it all in stride, which is surprising, given that all along I'm sure he thought he was a real musician.

    I bought Odelay back in the day on CD and its still in my iPhone..... but seeing him today on all the viral internet recaps I feel fucking old.... he's aged hard (but probably appropriately for a caucasian rock star).

    I don't know about this Beck guy, but I hear this Paul McCarthy guy is going to be huge after Kanye discovered him.

    another thing I don't get:

    I remember the backlash to that HBO show Girls was half because all the stars got their breaks because of "nepotism".

    But if you just do a little research you'll see it everywhere in any industry (hell..my mom is a doctor), from the current NBA (kobe bryant, stephen curry, klay thompson are all superstars who grew up privileged children of NBA players), to the music industry Beck himself comes from storied music family lineage, to political dynasties (kennedy's to bush's ect) and commerce.

    I just cringe when I see female friends on facebook talk about how they connect with the morons on that show. It's painful.


    I'm going to start posting how I feel like I have so much in common with Walter White, just to see what happens.

    yeah identifying with anyone one on that show publicly is basically shitting on yourself. its meta level "gotcha!" performance art by Lena Dunham. You know her mom and their art world friends are so proud of that.

    you can sometimes see the actresses on that show smirk when they are being especially annoying... its like they know someone is identifying with that shitty character and they are trying not to laugh out of guilt.

    This definitely means that all of your female friends have had their salads tossed while leaning against the stove.

    You assume that the people who really connect with those characters are in relationships.

    I've only seen the gif I have no idea about any of the context. Is a relationship a prereq for salad tossing?

    idk. My point was the people who seem to "connect" with these characters are usually trainwrecks themselves, and they have no idea how cringe worthy these characters actually are.
