  • Remiel | Is this rhetorical question confusing?
    was a Gaga manager who responded on her behalf fire that dude Gaga I should have guessed this might be the case If anyone but Weird Al had been the one requesting rights we d all automatically have said how does he even know he was hearing from Gaga herself You just assume he has the clout to get her eyes and ears Thanks OttoK and strutting Original post Weird Al s great I loved him as a kid and never grew out of it Parody is protected speech of course No one can stop Al from profiting off his satire But the list of those who ve denied him is a mix of surprises and non surprises And he always honors their requests just cuz he s like that When I heard that Lady Gaga refused Weird Al permission to parody Born This Way I thought Of all the people who shouldn t have a stick up their ass about this But before you pass judgment listen to the song on YouTube Watch the lyrics I m still disappointed she shot him down If she really believes the persona she s crafted is worth its salt commercially artistically she should have the spine to take Al s punches But it has to be said his lyrics border on a personal attack I d like to think that in whatever incredibly unlikely parallel universe I m a giant pop star I d give Weird Al free reign to do whatever he wants with my songs sight unseen or track unheard But I can see how Gaga s kneejerk reaction to this would be I m hurt rather than That s a funny parody of my song For the record here s Al s side of it It s worth a read if you care at all Unlike most of the headlines on Google about this Yankovic s blog post includes the beginning middle end of this instead of just Lady Gaga Says No to Weird Al UPDATE One other thought For Al to release this on YouTube and make it freely downloadable from his site amounts in 2011 to ignoring Gaga s refusal to grant permission Don t get me wrong Parody should definitely be sacrosanct no matter how savage or even unfunny But considering the role the internet now plays in musical promotion this is effectively the same thing as breaking his policy to honor artist permission Whether he makes money on it by putting it on his next album or not this is now a de facto marketing stunt He published it he ll sell albums and he ll make money on it Comments View Permalink Apr 12 2011 LINK TO THIS Comments View Comments View Permalink Apr 11 2011 LINK TO THIS Comments View Friday Rebecca Black and celebrity hate I love Friday Unabashedly I hope Rebecca Black makes a million dollars from it her debut album is a Gaga caliber hit and she marries her dreamboat

  • Remiel | Lady Gaga says “no” to Weird Al and I think she sucks but then I don’t.
    he has the clout to get her eyes and ears Thanks OttoK and strutting Original post Weird Al s great I loved him as a kid and never grew out of it Parody is protected speech of course No one can stop Al from profiting off his satire But the list of those who ve denied him is a mix of surprises and non surprises And he always honors their requests just cuz he s like that When I heard that Lady Gaga refused Weird Al permission to parody Born This Way I thought Of all the people who shouldn t have a stick up their ass about this But before you pass judgment listen to the song on YouTube Watch the lyrics I m still disappointed she shot him down If she really believes the persona she s crafted is worth its salt commercially artistically she should have the spine to take Al s punches But it has to be said his lyrics border on a personal attack I d like to think that in whatever incredibly unlikely parallel universe I m a giant pop star I d give Weird Al free reign to do whatever he wants with my songs sight unseen or track unheard But I can see how Gaga s kneejerk reaction to this would be I m hurt rather than That s a funny parody of my song For the record here s Al s side of it It s worth a read if you care at all Unlike most of the headlines on Google about this Yankovic s blog post includes the beginning middle end of this instead of just Lady Gaga Says No to Weird Al UPDATE One other thought For Al to release this on YouTube and make it freely downloadable from

    to get the music I want And of course any CD I buy is immediately ripped to my hard drive and stashed in the closet But singles I would estimate I bought between fifteen and twenty albums in 2010 I can t even think of a single I purchased Sure I love setting my hard drive to random and building custom playlists but the idea of buying just that one song is almost totally alien to me Comments View Permalink Feb 21 2011 LINK TO THIS Comments View Why my thermostat represents everything wrong with most consumer technology Using this thermostat how would you decrease the temperature by one degree You press the down arrow twice to decrease the temperature by one degree The first press merely lights up the display Nothing else happens until you press another button It s easy to imagine the thinking behind this Let s add a backlight But wouldn t it be annoying if it s constantly on So we ll make it button activated But how will you know what to press if you can t see the display So we ll make the first button press do nothing It just turns on the display Cool Ship it But that s stupid The first three times I used this thermostat I was irritated because I thought my button presses weren t registering Then I realized Oh the first press never does anything It just turns on the light I ve learned to use it correctly and I m no longer confused But I m still annoyed because I just want to quickly change the temperature One poor design choice can turn a good user experience into one that is frustrating This might seem petty at first but it s exactly the kind of bizzaro world design tradeoff that companies make all the time Some edge case priority What if they want to change the temperature when it s kinda dark brings down the whole daily experience of just using the thing Modern televisions and computer monitors suffer from this kind of thinking too Companies are so obsessed with making their hardware look sleek they ve hidden the buttons underneath the display or on the side The controls are barely labeled and now in some cases touch sensitive Not only is it hard to find the button you want but by feeling around for it you end up pressing everything Here s how the thermostat should work Your first button press should work If you press UP the temp should go up And yes the backlight should come on too After changing the temperature five or six times you re not going to forget where the two big arrow buttons are anyway But what if you do happen to be changing the temperature in the dark or less likely defining a whole new heating schedule in the dark and happen to press the wrong button What s the worst case scenario Your house explodes
