I know that the last week or two have seen some of the most egregious and sophomoric behavior in a long while (goatse anyone?) (or perhaps I'm just focussing on the negative, as I've been known to do sometimes), and that these things go in waves and soon we'll all be acting like Rhodes Scholars on Paxil, but this seems pretty far beyond the pale, regardless of whether you hate Postroad, love Howard Stern, or some combination of the two....

OK but you didn't open a MeTa thread when I got called a greaseball.
why?
(I admit nobody ever called me Streisand loving, though. maybe that was the out-of-bounds part)

I wasn't sure if that was legitimate or not. It was so comically over-the-top I couldn't formulate much of an opinion, though the likely culprit for my inability to do so may be the unbelievable number of stupid things I read on here today, not to mention the number of threads started about them.

I guess I missed that one. It's a matter of dodging bullets around here, lately.

Nah. You're not. There has been a lot of sticking-ones-dick-in-the-mashed-potatoes recently. Especially while Matt was out.

What to gain by calling this out, though, I just don't know.

In what is essentially a post about free speech, someone got Metatalked for speaking freely.

How amusing.

...and by the way, I take great offense at your depiction of Our Lord and Savior as having "downy balls". It's patently rude and offensive, and completely inappropriate for discussion on a website where we are supposed to be accepting of *ALL* religions.

Besides, how would you know what his balls were like?!

I'm not sure free speech extends to insults. I'm not sure metatalk amounts to censorship. I'm not sure your comparison is worth beans. I'm not sure this growth on my neck is natural. Stavros has never done anything ironic, so you must be mistaken. Take your dick out of the mashed potatoes, and pass me the gravy. On second thought, pass me the mashed potatoes too.

Am I violating your first amendment rights?

Kristofferson A) was cleaning ashtrays--at the age of 30--in Columbia's Nashville studio when Blonde on Blonde was recorded, B) loathed Streisand, who had C) Elvis in mind originally for A Star Is Born--In 1975! and Brando was considered for the role as well--In 1975!--the version clavidvs came to prevent and the version he inadvertently created the first time he tried, respectively. A segment of the Simpsons' Treehouse Of Horror V was based upon his activites.

One of these days, clavdivs will have to explain how his time machine then broke and he came to be trapped with us here in the 20th and then 21st Centuries. Well, either that or why he keeps popping in for visits after all he has wrought upon us with his temporal meddling.

the material was to good to not use.

"Kris Kristofferson was born June 22, 1936 in Brownsville, Texas, just across the border from Matamoros, Mexico. The son of an Air Force Major-General, he spent much of his youth moving around the country to wherever his father was stationed. After finishing high school in San Mateo, California, Kristofferson attended Pomona College, where he majored in Creative Literature. He was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford University, where he studied William Blake, while never abandoning his lifelong admiration for Hank Williams.

After a stint as an Army pilot, he declined a teaching post at West Point and moved to Nashville to pursue a writing career in the country music scene. He took on various jobs, including bartender, janitor at Columbia Studios, and helicopter pilot ferrying workers and execs back and forth to oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico."

And hama 7, of course, was played by Austrailian actor Rod Taylor in a movie partly based upon an H.G. Wells novel based upon his life story--a life more accurately portrayed by David Warner in Time after Time.

Actually, I was serious, mom. Due to serious brain damage, I did miss the irony until someone pointed it out, though.

The fact that I could point out and MeTafy bad behaviour in a tone that was not hectoring or schoolmarmish was an experiment, I admit.

So, you know, eat flaming dogs***, you c*cksucking, Streisand loving, m*therf*cking ___hole. [/satire]

What ever happened to Cindy Lauper?
posted by languagehat at 5:05 PM on March 19, 2004


She went through bankruptcy, guested as Paul Whathisname's ex-girlfriend on Mad About You from time to time and lately has pulled a Linda Ronstadt meets Nelson Riddle career move with an album of bluehair station standards. if I recall correctly and why is this information in my brain, anyway?

Those of us in our fifties should be careful about throwing around terms like "bluehair," y2karl.

Don't forget the Worker Morlocks, hama7!

Upon review: Well, blue hair station what my nieces called that old pop music radio format when they were young... and the oldest is nearly 30 now.
From blue hair to blue hair--it has a certain symmetry.

Bluehair?! No darling, she's now a gay diva extraordinaire! Madonna, Ms. Diana Ross... and Cyndi!

You know it's a pride parade when everyone in the crowd is singing along to "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun"...

Bluehair to former bluehair just didn't have the same ring. And, they play Judy Garland on those stations, you know--and who among the Gay Divas of All Time came earlier?--so, same difference.
