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.

^^^^^

wow… the more you know

Even as a tweener Brit-US (Canadian!) I would have thought spastic has to do with spams and twitching.  Never heard of it in the context described above that I can remember, really isn’t part of the North American vocabulary in that sense.

Doom Patrol!This reminds me I need to dig out my copies of the transcendent and wonderful “From the Wreckage” issues that started off Grant Morrison’s run on the book.  In particular I NEED to read about Robotman’s phantom pains from being a “full body amputee” and how sometimes he feels the need to drop a phantom deuce.Grant Morrison just might be God.

Mechanical Devil (1400s)

Displayed at Applied Arts Collections Museum in the Sforza Castle in Milan, Italy, this automaton is carved from wood. From the Wunderkammer of Ludovico Settala.

You could make these mechanical devils stick their tongues out, howl, and make creepy faces by turning the device.
