What is this obsession with One Direction?

They look like little trolls.

by Anonymousreply 10611/26/2012

and (most of) the NKOTB, Backstreet Boys and NSYNC all looked like they got out prison.

Are we being victimized by a guerrilla marketing campaign or are there really several gay members?

I don't understand what goes on in all those One Direction threads. Very strange.

by Anonymousreply 411/19/2012

The boybands of the past actually had talent. 1D...not so much. 1D is a manufactored band of talentless pretty boys. The next generation of tween fan will be looking toward a different pop star or group within a year.

They all look so young, too. I'm just not into them. Eww.

Yes, R6 is correct. They look 14, which is why the eldergay pedos around here want to talk about them.

They made history for the Brits in America.

by Anonymousreply 811/19/2012

The people who post on the One Direction thread appear to fall into the category of Brits who are in their 30's, sad, lonely straight women and a couple of deluded gay basement dwelling men who think that Harry is the future Mick Jagger due to his 'charisma'. Apparently they bought the PR machine ideas fed to them by label.

They were first introduce on Xfactor Uk and had a brilliant homoerotic/touchy feely/bromantic marketing and their pics/videos/gifs were all over tumblr which made people from other countries like America discovered them... tween girls would rather pair the boys together instead of themselves.

I foolishly thought that after hiphop's stranglehold on the charts for the past decade or so, boy bands were a thing of the past. I suffered through the NSYNC/Backstreet Boys rivalry and their shiteous music in junior high (naturally, all of my BFFs were girls).

None of them are ugly, but their sex appeal is equal to their charisma - zero.

They look prepubescent. What is the deal with Harry Styles? Why is his hair combed forward from the back?

by Anonymousreply 2111/19/2012

Whenever boy bands come in to vogue, the media is basically telling us, "Popular music is exhausted and needs to reinvent itself, so until something truly new comes along, here's a pre-synthesized group of boys who are cute but not really singing well to hold you over until then." then we get something new and the boy band disappears.

All of a sudden they are everywhere. Or maybe that have been for a while and I just didn't notice. They get 600 replies on ONTD. Tons of threads here on DL. I couldn't even tell you all all their names and who is who.

Are they more popular than Bieber? I guess we have go to through this boyband phase every 10 years. It's a cycle.

There was a time when people were speculating that two of them were secretly lovers who wanted to come out. That was interesting.

by Anonymousreply 3011/19/2012

I give them about another year or so. Then they'll fade away. These girls are already getting a bit tired of them. Harry seems to be the most popular one. I have no idea why, he seems dull as dish water. The only decent looking one is the one with the jet black hair. Other than that.. Meh.

Ok, they look about 13. Creepy.

by Anonymousreply 3511/19/2012

Boybands are nothing new. This isn't any different NKOTB, BSB, NSYNC, 98 degrees and all the other boybands who have come and gone.

They all get super popular by having all the tween girls fall in love with them, ride the wave for a few years, then fade from popculture. It is just their time in the sun right now.

They do look younger and less conventially attractive than many other boybands who have come before them IMO, but whatever.

by Anonymousreply 3611/19/2012

"louis' ass is the only thing i really like about the group"

I am responsible for the original "Ass of Louis Tomlinson" thread. I just liked his ass and barely had any idea who they were. That thread got 600 responses and spawned several follow up threads until the most recent one was closed after which the new Harry threads got started. And here I just liked his ass.

by Anonymousreply 3711/20/2012

I'm assuming those threads are mostly teens who found DL from their One Direction Google alerts?

I have no idea, OP. I stay away from those threads. It's either frauen or pedos in there, either way I don't want any part of it.

by Anonymousreply 3911/20/2012

One Direction is no less talented than BSB, NSynch, and all of the other boybands before them who's songs all sounded exactly the same.

I actually like a lot of 1D's songs. And I don't think they sound bad at all when singing live.

And those of you who are saying they aren't attractive are just a bunch of jealous bitter queens... look at them, they are all good looking and you know it.

Those of you who don't know who 1D is or why they are so's best you just turn away now and never look back... cuz if you start looking into them you likely WILL get sucked in...

Oh, and a special thank you to the one who started the Louis Ass threads, those were fun...

R44/R45, how is simply mentioning he's Muslim "promoting" it? You're a fucking idiot. You know that, right?

I've also seen comments calling him a "terrorist" solely because of what he must be "promoting" those.

Muslims have taken a lot of shit, so there's nothing wrong with mentioning what he is. Perhaps Muslims are just sick of the only "promoting" they ever get being negative in nature. I can't even imagine being a Muslim kid going to some public school these days and taking a lot of shit from idiots who whine about "promoting."

Thanks, those threads were fun--at least until they became overrun with the lunatic "Grimmy" freaks who made the Larry shippers look downright sensible.

by Anonymousreply 4911/21/2012

I don't find them attractive because, yes, my 12-year-old nephew can grow more facial hair, but they are kind of strangely endearing. It's too bad that even if one or two of them are gay, they'll never admit it. I'd certainly like them more if they were.

Boybands always have one gay one, no matter how much they deny it. Boyzone had poor Stephen Gately, Westlife has Mark Fehilly - one of Take That has to be too, Jason I imagine. One has even come out on the new group still in the English X-Factor, so one of 1D has to be too ...

So one question how did the lovely Louis Tomlinson thread get hijacked by the terribly ugly Nick Grimshaw yuk!!!

I mean I get that there was the whole Nick Grimshaw Harry Styles thing ,as opposed to the more romantic and yes fantasy laden Louis Harry thread. How did they prevail though?

I don't know, OP.

There are far better looking celebrities out there rather than a group of British teenage boys with stinky foreskins.

by Anonymousreply 6611/22/2012

@ R63 @ R65 The Gryles crazies tried desperately to take over the fun & interesting Louis threads many times. They succeeded in chasing a few off but could never fully take over. So, iirc, someone posted the alleged nude photo of underage Harry and then probably reported themselves and had the thread shut down.

Then they moved over to the Harry/Nick thread and eventually any talk of any other 1D member especially Louis was "banned".

They want to live in their Gryles fantasy land and refuse to listen to any objective reasoning. They are as bad as if not worse than the Larry shippers, who they detest and ridicule constantly.

It's all rather amusing :)

by Anonymousreply 6711/22/2012

They're beyond fugly and untalented...I guess their lackluster appearances give them an air of accessibility that underachieving girls crave in this day and age.

by Anonymousreply 6811/22/2012

They are doing a great deal for the visibility of homosexual love. The displays between them, fake or not (Ass of Louis threads being the penultimate genesis of Love of Louis after only tumblr/the real McCoy) have planted the seed of any and every homosexual "agenda" into the future liberals of the world. I kid, I kid. But homosexual normality is the status quo with the band. A nice change.

by Anonymousreply 6911/22/2012

Thanks, R67. What are Gryles crazies? Why do people object to discussion of Louis?

by Anonymousreply 7011/22/2012

r70, Gryles crazies are a faction of the now defunct "Ass of Louis" threads who where sure to derail the progress of conversation to fit around a DJ called Nick Grimshaw who now hosts the Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 1.

They object to discussion of Louis for one of two reasons: 1) They do not "like" him and object to the mention of his rudeness or some other character flaw.

2) They believe that the mutual obsession of gay love gives them the right to promote their fascist and preferred pairing. Despite the fact that they are visiters on the DL and the "Ass of Louis" threads gave many a good smile.

by Anonymousreply 7111/22/2012

Thank you, r71. It's like peering into an insane little world. One last question: what are Larry shippers?

by Anonymousreply 7211/22/2012

Larry shippers are the contingent of the internet that believe that two members of One Direction are together - Louis and Harry - and have made a portmanteau of the names: Larry. They probably number in the millions. Maybe ten of this great number posted in the thread, who were encouraged and questioned by DL regulars - a delightful combination that led to heartfelt discussions of young love and the oppressors of such innocent yet sexually charged stages of life. Finally, it seemed, some two people could be seen going for it.

Yum, r58. My choice for 1D impregnation would be Niall. I'd happily do all the work; he could just lay there. I would fellate him, rim his hole, and sit on his cock. He wouldn't even have to put on a condom. He could just dump his virile, Irish sperm deep inside me. I'd even clean off his dick after he slipped out. I figure he pretty much gets everything taken care of on a daily basis, I might as well make sex just as convenient. Anything to help out a boy band.

Thanks, R67. I knew the Gryles loonies were trying to derail the Harry/Louis threads but wasn't sure what happened. It is hilarious that they now demand that no one go off topic when the worked so hard to derail a successful series of threads.

There was one sad twat who was far crazier than the rest. She posted at least 50 times that she was done posting on the threads--then continued to post day and night. At least 20 percent of the posts in one thread were her.

So let me see if this is right.We have been chucked out of our own home and from what I can see the Nick Grimshaw thread is up to it's eighth repetitive instalment They are still debating the clothes that Harry is said to have borrowed from Nick,which from what I recall they were talking about in what -Louis Tomlinson's ass 6 ?

Mmm interesting,sort of like missing "Days of our Lives" and picking up months later where we left off. Oh and a harsh article has been written about Nick and Harry and the rumour they are together which everyone on the thread feels pissed about .mmmm Karma is a bitch !!:)

@ R95 Yes doll, it probably has. Run away before you get sucked in too...

Waving hello to Larry Believer! :) I posted here in this thread R40 and R67 as anonymous but I used to sign as blue eyed doll. I stopped signing blue eyed doll in the Gryles threads though, since they never liked what I had to say and mostly ignored me anyway haha.

I don't dislike Grimmy... actually I really like him, I think he is very handsome and charming. And I love his accent and his voice. I'm not really a Larry Shipper but I do believe that H&L love each other and have a very special bond to this day. I just haven't seen Harry look at Grimmy the same way he looks at Louis. But I do believe that Harry really likes Grimmy and they have probably messed around.

I think it's one of those "it's complicated" situations :)

by Anonymousreply 9611/23/2012

Those threads were a rare break from our lives and a look into a potentially wonderful situation...1 in a million. The Grimshaw threads are too clinical to become the hotbed of great posts the Ass threads were. To their credit, they might put DL on the map by outing Harry with their impressive skills. Yay and yikes.

by Anonymousreply 9711/23/2012

Hi blue eyed doll and everyone missed you guys.

It is sort of weird but I really don't mind Grimshaw either but I am not entirely convinced that Harry and he are together except as friends and possibly casual sex buddies.

I was pretty sold on Larry and really once you give your heart to one absurd love story that drew you in against your better instincts,it is quite difficult to sell yourself on another one.

Still I thought there was room for us all and Louis's ass was certainly exquisite enough to entertain many possibilities :)
