The Big Fat Quiz of the Year discussing the fact that Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ is the biggest selling song of 2013 in the UK

While this is funny and I <3 Moss/Richard Ayoade to death, I still don’t fucking understand why *this* song in particular was randomly singled out. Did anyone actually listen to the lyrics besides the lines that got thrown around all the time as proof of its rapey-ness? Not only does it seem (to me, anyway) that the “blurred lines” he’s referring to are the boundaries caused by the fact that she is in a relationship, but there are several lyrics in the song that explicitly ask for the woman’s consent. I don’t think I’ll ever get it. Sure, parts of it are questionable, but there is popular shit I hear on the radio that is so much worse and literally makes me cringe; this doesn’t.

yes

This is one of the greatest speeches I have ever heard. I know its long, but I guarantee this is worth your time much more than any of those links you constantly see from Buzzfeed or Upworthy to 10 seconds of a speech that will allegedly “change your life”, or “the most important poem of the 21st century” that was written by some self-righteous cliche-spouting 8th grader, or an innocent statement from a little kid that “we can all learn a lesson from.”
