if you are not utterly heart melted by these two, what the fuck is wrong with you.
This is the cutest thing I have ever seen.
The pure fact that this doesn’t even need a title or a description or anything speaks volumes. I mean look at the number of notes this has. There are so few people who don’t recognize it. And the song itself just gives you chills. It’s so magical.
Because I’m near a follower milestone, and I just need to spread some love for this film and in general, I’m giving one US winner an HD digital copy of Delicious via iTunes and one UK winner a copy of the DVD via Amazon UK.
This film is so important to me as it was written, directed and produced by a woman with zero budget and stars one of my favorite women. So I want everyone to see it.
Here are the guidelines

- UK winner will need to give me their mailing address.
- I will close entries at 11:59pm CDT (GMT-5) on Sunday, August 3, 2014.

Someone did it. Someone finally portrayed me perfectly in a single 6 second video.

Sometimes Sherlock wakes up to find John watching him sleep. He still gets shy when he sees it. Maybe even blushes a bit.
Speaking as someone with a cousin who has Angelman Syndrome and a family friend who’s 6 year old has cerebral palsy, the s-word is just as bad as the r-word where I come from. As I said in my tags, it’s often used against with people who have verbal/physical tics and/or who are visibly disabled. It’s not a pleasant word, it’s not a funny word, and no matter what context or meaning you know it from, it’s a slur. Please, please don’t say it if you can help it.
Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.
And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.It’s great that he’s addressed this but are we really supposed to believe that NO ONE during the extremely lengthy processes of writing a song, recording it, mastering it and animating the music video wouldn’t have brought it up?
Excuse me but how the hell is spastic even remotely insulting?
So I just recently learned that in the UK calling someone spastic means the same thing as calling someone retarded, only much worse.
If it makes people in the UK feel any better, people in the US literally do not know this (like literally no one I have ever met and/or know). Here being spastic is usually meant to mean something along the lines of acting like a hyper-active child (like running around in circles yelling just because they feel like it please be quiet for just 2 minutes type of child). NOBODY here uses it as a slur.
Since Weird Al is a US musician and the US music industry is pretty non-international, yeah actually I think its entirely possible that none of the people who worked on this song actually knew that spastic was considered an awful slur in some parts of the world.
And I’m like 99.9999% sure that Weird Al is genuinely very sorry that he was accidentally offensive.
Okay okay I just want to add here that it’s fine if people in America don’t use that word at all, but here’s the thing
It is ALWAYS a slur. Whether or not you’re in America, no matter what the context. The fact that people in America don’t think of it as a slur doesn’t mean it isn’t one, it just means that people in America are more desensitized to the slur. Literally the word either refers to people who suffer muscle spasms, or people who have cerebral palsy. That is where the word comes from. Using it to describe a hyperactive child IS using it as a slur, because it is inappropriate use of the word to describe undesirable behaviour.
So, ENOUGH WITH THE “CONSIDERED A SLUR” TALK.
Don’t say that it’s “considered a slur in some parts of the world.” because IT IS ALWAYS A SLUR.
It’s not a matter of opinion, it’s a matter of fact.
A SLUR DOES NOT STOP BEING A SLUR SIMPLY BECAUSE YOU ARE DESENSITIZED TO IT.
