The Girl That Hates Everything | Official Lyric Videos

I know that this seems petty but is nothing sacred anymore? There was a place for lyric videos. That place was YouTube and the creators were people like you and me. People that had a fondness for a basic black background and Comic Sans font. Or occasionally, backgrounds and fonts that clashed violently. Still, that’s what was so fun about lyric videos. Someone sitting down to take the time to put it all together simply because they enjoyed the song. Now the only thing people enjoy to do is post long forty minutes responses to viral vidoes, reality shows and other people’s videos. And talk about themselves. And troll comments. Or let you know that they’re watching in [insert calendar year here]. I always get the feeling that if aliens came down to Earth, they’d take one look at YouTube and never come back.

Can You Feel Something Without Touching? 


No, Mazda, you can’t. And why is this woman in her car with her eyes closed? How does this make someone want to go out buy the car? Why would you want to drive with your eyes closed? Why would you make a car commercial where the driver appears to be driving with her eye closed?! 

So many questions. 

stupid and senseless: the ‘we need more facts’ edition


I’m sure most people have heard of the situation depicted in the above video. When I saw the headline, I wasn’t surprised. Stuff like this has become par for the course sadly, especially if you’re a black person. The video itself was largely disturbing. At sixteen seconds long (the initial clip), you wouldn’t think it’d be much but my jaw literally dropped and I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.

I was disgusted and appalled. And angry.

Naturally, I expect others to be too, but I always forget that you cannot fix stupid and that there’s no limit to the number of heartless people in this world.

I am completely dismayed by the number of people who were saying that they needed more facts before they could condemn what this officer did. Really? He flung this girl like she was rag doll and you need more facts? Her being ‘defiant’ and refusing to leave class is a justifiable reason for this to some people? Wow. Just wow. Apparently she was on her phone briefly, and pleaded to stay in class but the teacher demanded she leave. That was her crime – being on her phone and not participating in class. That is pure and utter bullshit but almost irrelevant. Textbook case of the punishment not fitting the fucking crime.

The fact is that a grown man, who supposedly lifts weights and weights 300lbs used excessive force against someone who wasn’t resisting. Someone who is supposed to be protecting students disrupted a class and terrified the other kids. That’s all anyone should take from this. All of this ‘kids these days have an attitude’ and ‘Oh, this is what she gets for being defiant’ is so mind numbingly stupid that I don’t even know what else to say.

So, on behalf of this girl, fuck anyone defending the school and that officer. I hope that this never happens to any of your loved ones or you. And I hope that you find some common decency at some point. Ugh.

Oh and Don Lemon can shut the fuck up as well with his bullshit.

Well, this is interesting…


I know I’m several months and possibly a year late in watching this but what the everloving watermelon lemon hell is this? I didn’t know whether to laugh, cry or do damage to myself with my eyeliner. I remember people saying that this video was rife with cultural appropriation and…it’s hard to argue with that really.

I liked Avril better when she was saying see you later to her sk8r boi.

I think the person on YouTube who wrote this comment

How much meth does it take to enjoy this?

asked the most pertinent question. I can only assume that the answer is a lot.
