Taylor, dear… while I respect you right to view the world through whatever lens(es) you find at your disposal (via life experience, etc.) as a simple matter of pop lyric explication I would challenge - and ultimately reject - your assertion as to the lack of romance in these songs. For many couples romance exists outside (sometimes far, far outside) the narrow, puritanical boundaries you define in this post. You dishonor and disrespect those relationships with this kind of nonsense (if you were serious). If this was intended as humor… FAIL.
Seriously, Buzzfeed… seriously? Sieg heil, Overlords and Enforcers of Heteronormativity. Were we to (somehow) ignore this knuckle-dragging error we’d still be left with a tone-deaf posting; asking men how they “measure up” is either the most beige carpet entendre or a rather rude inference about your male readers. FAIL.
Buzzfeed FAIL. Gay boys says these things, too… how small-minded/sexist of you. (Still loved the post, ‘natch.)
How could you leave off, “You must have pissed… them off.” Piper: “I was a demanding boochie.” Classic. CLASSIC.
How is this a quiz?
Uh, I don’t say “you cannot say that.” Where’s THAT poster? No words should be off limits, provided we understand every choice (word, in this case) carries consequences. Say what you want… if you say something I find rude, stupid or offensive you’ve done me a huge favor; I now know to stay away from you. But let’s not go around celebrating @ssholes like the people behind this smug, preachy, pointless (and not always accurate) campaign. Get over yourself, BuzzFeed. Sheesh.
Having spent three tours of duty at Sundance and one at LA Independent Film Festival (RIP you beautiful monster) I developed quite a taste for docs of all walks. I only name-drop to establish some cred before assigning “FAIL” to this post; mostly white subjects/filmmakers for the bulk of the list, the inclusion of titles not quite rising to status as a legit doc, the tally-masquerading as a quiz all cheapen the notion of an online community discussion about film. For shame.
Buzzfeed FAIL. The interface is awful, like something MicroSoft would have shat out.
Um, so essentially this post is about how a guy-spotter would be just as consistently wrong/off-base as the real Spotify? Having a “type” is so pedestrian. These recommendations are racist, unimaginative and all-together way-too basic. How about suggesting the new(er) guy based on personality/personality of the roles they play (just using actors as an example)? Why recommend a white guy with bad hair if they already like a white guy with bad hair? How about a finding parallel attraction points like involvement in philanthropy, personal interests or… I dunno, anything less shallow? FAIL.
Thank you for posting this-but why is it listed as EST? Are you that thirsty for East-Coast approval? Setting your media-WhoreNess aside, the post contains both EDT and EST time stamps… edit for consistency much?
Uh, I’m not getting any audio, says a copyright dispute was filed or whatever. Stellar post….
Posts like this divide us instead of celebrating our common ground/common goals… setting aside the snide and sometimes ignorant approach this post employs I take serious issue with the idea that only a member of a certain group can advocate for/speak to the conditions of that group; if the rest of the world felt that way we wouldn’t have jazz, women’s rights, hip hop, civil rights… (the more you open your mind BuzzFeed, the longer the list gets). In the end equation, if Macklemore (and Ryan Lewis, the unsung hero in many of these discussions) did such a crummy job you would have had instant proof; when you posted this EVERYONE would have said, “Who?” or had no idea what you were talking about. We have a frame of reference for this discussion b/c Macklemore & Lewis rocked this one. Hard. HARRRD.
This company is doomed. DOOMED, I say. They “make viral videos” and this was the response they came up with? It made NO sense, didn’t actually counter her concerns and made them look less-than-creative. And that “boss” seemed a little, uh, let’s go with off; crazy eyes, didn’t seem to understand other people’s personal space while dancing and (on several occasions) humped the air suggestively which is, I’m sure, a quality we ALL want in a boss. FAIL.
As amusing (and mildly informative) as this was I am a tad unclear on the context and/or reason driving the creation of this post…
OK, I take back my earlier kudos - SHAME on you, Buzzfeed. Racist. Pro-Violence. WTF is up with this post? That last image ended up being included in post about idiotic responses to the pageant… on YOUR OWN site. Grow up. What kind of “adversity” inspires the “real” winner? Tattoo discrimination? I’ll be sure to start a hunger strike or sit-in real soon.
Bravo, Buzzfeed! Call them out on their sh!t.
The first CD I bought (to go in my very first stand-alone, component CD player) was Madonna’s “I’m Breathless.”
USC made it on here but not UCLA? Take a walk a few blocks in ANY direction and then take a picture, people! FAIL. Utter total FAIL.
Much like “Dancing With The Stars,” you’ve lost all perspective on fame. This is NOT a list of celebs but a casting sheet for “To Catch A Predator.” Boo, hiss.
Shia LaBeouf included in this list? FAIL. Flipping one’s car whilst drunk, getting kicked out of a drugstore late at night (again drunk) and picking crappy movies where all he does is hiccup/gasp instead of act - those are NOT signs of “keeping it together.” You are demoted to writing captions on Yahoo news.
Mmm, thank you - who needs coffee in the morning with pick-me-ups like this?
Yet another brilliant, totally based in fact, not at all suspicious “report” BuzzFeed decided to run. Who, exactly, has taken leave from the staff so as to allow bits like this in? Many of us love me some good ol’ data porn and get all lathered up when it comes to map porn - posts like this should be a no-brainer, yet this phoned-in attempt is what we get instead. Gold star for (sort of) trying.
As a native Angelino I’m just going to issue the standard reaction: If it is so great where you came from, go back. (It will help clear up traffic, too.)
That I do not accept the premise of this “article” should be assumed (the appalling, atrocious headline negates the entire post) - ignoring that basic info leaves only one major issue. Attending this school has warped and/or damaged your ability to read and properly use a standard, Western calendar. This post was obviously intended to run on April 1.
I love it! When do I get this life? (Under 30k, or so it claims!)
