    It's just a joke.

    Man, and I'm the weird guy who actually dislikes "Get Lucky" as a song even more than "Blurred Lines", even if the latter's lyrics are just... yeah.

    I might as well just say that I'm tired of the 70's revival going on in the top 40. Pharell's stuff, JT, Bruno Mars, they all seem to be trying to dig up stuff from the late 70's with their most recent singles, and it's getting more and more tiresome with each song. Even "Suit and Tie" bores me now, and that was my jam when it came out.

    Heh. My dad loves "Get Lucky", even though he has no clue who either Daft Punk or Pharell are. He keeps referring to Daft Punk as "the guy who did that song that other guy (Stephen Colbert) was dancing to."

    Am I the only one who consistently seems to have trouble getting touch commands to work on an Android? I must have pork fingers or something because I can't get simple things like long touch and copy to even recognize.

    Am I the only one who is constantly irritated by the songs on radio over here? They just play the same songs over and over and over again!

    That's been a problem with radio since the dawn of time, but only independent radio stations seem to take the effort to address that complaint.

    It's been a long-standing policy to stick to a specific playlist, but it clearly doesn't work (you get bored and stop listening, making the advertiser dollars worthless) so I don't know why no one challenges the idea.

    I just use Pandora these days instead of radio. So many new artists I've found since, & none of the annoying Top 40 hits to bog it down.

    "Twerking" is just "Freak dancing" from 15 years ago with a weirder name. Kids today didn't invent anything.

    It's especially annoying when there are so many other songs on the CD that they could play, but for some reason just choose not to.

    I believe radio stations generally only play an album's singles, so that leaves the other ones (album cuts) out of the playlists.

    At the end of "Super Why" when they are dancing, am I the only one who thinks the pig and roller blade girl are just having fun, but Whyatt* and the princess are totally into each other?


    Am I the only one trying to get outside as much as possible to take advantage of the great weather?
    My legs are shot from bicycling too much. I should probably start on the upper body and climb a tree or something.



    *Whyatt. Oh, I get it now.

    Is the media pretending Roar is a "popular" song just because Katy Perry made it? I can't imagine anyone liking it enough to buy it.

    Still doesn't make it a good song. Ugh. It just stinks of the same uplfting BS crap Katy Perry songs are known for to show all the special snowflakes they're important and unique and valued.

    No, but it's a hit. I haven't heard this one, but I like her stuff generally. Nothing I would buy an album of, but it's listenable bubblegum pop.

    "Katy Perry is meant to be seen, not heard."

    I always hated that saying when applied to children, but it works well enough for Katy Perry. In interest of equality feel free to use (does google search) Keith Urban as a substitute.

    Just saw her on Good Morning America picking the school that made the best parody video. It may be the first time I've heard the song. I can't tell. They all sound the same. A relentless march of lyrics being dragged uphill. A common enough style right now where it's so measured I think it's meant to become an earworm.

    My local theater plays a loop of the same 3 or so songs before they start playing trailers, and one of them is some song by Katy Perry which is basically done to the tune of a generic indie girl's music. I'm not a fan of her regular pop stuff, but that is my personal hell.

    Saw a commercial for the samsung watch. Is anyone really going to hold a watch to their face to make calls?

    I think they think people will think "Whee! Just like Dick Tracy!" But actually people will think "Who's Dick Tracy?"
