Miley Cyrus - "Wrecking Ball" Official Music Video!
I HATE myself for liking the song, but it's a great pop power ballad.
The video has all the problems we've associated with Miley's career - her homely face, her flabby, chicken like body and her inappropriate and totally unsexy nudity.
Other than that, it's a hit!
Thank goodness that isn't a cover of Young's Wrecking Ball, the song Harris covered so brilliantly. That would have been an atrocity.
I hate to say it but I kind of like the song.
She's determined to shove that nasty body of hers in everyone's face.
"Yes, I AM sexy! Yes, I am! Yes, I am!"
I think her body is fine. She is thin, but not sure what people think is nasty about it.
As far as the video, the imagery with her riding on the wrecking ball is actually kind of cool for the song. If they had kept with that theme, or even the crumbling concrete, it would have been fine. The licking of the hammer is where it all went wrong. She looked so stupid doing that and if it was supposed to be sexy, it played like a joke or parody of itself. It was also discordant with the rest of the video and the song itself.
I hate her voice, but if the song were song by someone else, like a Fiona Apple type, it could be a really good song.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
