I'm offended by this. It sucks! What kind of faggot shit is this?
I was listening to pinball wizard by the who the other day and thought about if it was released today. Is there any way the lyric "That deaf, dumb, and blind kid sure plays a mean pinball," would be accepted? Or would the who be branded as mysogonist bigots who look down on and make fun of the disabled?
Shit, good luck finding radio stations that play the unedited version of this song... Few and far between
Yeah. "That learning disabled kid sure plays mean pinball" just doesn't have the same ring.
No one's offended that their guitarist is a pedophile
Maybe they need to go back and clean it up a bit. You know like Howard did with Gary the slow adult.
If it's good enough for the king of all media, it's good enough for the who.
I wish I knew how to a make fake internet outrage blow up. I bet the perpetually offended would love to try and get this song, and it's outdated philosophy updated with a new, more inclusive theme.
You misspelled "internet researcher/ detective."
I mean..the guy was researching kiddie porn?
How come he didn't hang for that?
Facebook. I take it you are not familiar.
I have a fake account only that I use to play games, and good god, I read it every few days and don't know whether to laugh or cry. It's sad yet hilarious.
Yeah I have an account set up, just so I could use the Facebook at my last job, But no I am not a regular user. But yeah I guess that and Twitter are the places to start such a movement.
The future is scary.
Did you get a new job?
I've decided to do the contract/ freelance thing for the winter and see if it is something I can make a living out of! Looking forward to it, but a bit nervous as well!
Even the 80's channel on Sirius edits it.
Not really. Their more recent stuff hasn't really changed and they've faded in popularity.
People would only be offended if there was some way to promote and play music, because there's a large portion of people that would enjoy it. MTV and rock radio are dead. Can you imagine what SJW's would do if MTV was still around?
The Who got enough grief for Tommy. US Vice President at the time Spiro Agnew gave them a hard time for the song Acid Queen because he said it glorified drug use. Townshend said "You reactionary idiot, it's an anti-drug song."
Actually, Pinball Wizard is the same thing. The person singing it is supposed to be a base, rude thug. He's supposed to be insensitive, and he exemplifies this by calling this amazing, spiritual and talented artist as "that deaf, dumb and blind kid."
It's an opera. The songs are sung from a character's point of view.
I'm offended by the use of synthesizer and bad white-guy rapping.
this cartoon wouldn't be OK today, either.
