I want to scrape my eyes out with shards of a teapot and/or drink draino.

It's about time that the music community finally tackles the controversial issue of Gem Sweaters. Courage.

Surely that's a sign of the coming Apocalypse.

Is it just me or... has this been posted before?

Wow.

And she's on tour, too.

May, I think what's been posted before was a flash animation or video of her just sitting still while the sweaters she wears change.

So, it seems like her career is based on being overweight and rapping about tacky clothes. Interesting.

This is really bugging me.

Can you spell out exactly how you would pronounce "An .mov", please?

Why is there an "An" and not an "A"? All I know is "dot moov" or "moov" or "Quicktime".

/thinks so

Thanks, I will sleep well tonight.

I love sweater girl. Who but sweater girl has the audacity to wear gold cling pants in public. Well, Mick Jagger and probably Rod Stewart...but besides the geriatric anomalies...nobody, that's who.

hagspan...I don't think so. I think it may just be spectacularly ordinary women making a really outstanding statement about beauty in our culture.

dobbs: Okay. Now that I think about it, I believe I've seen that exact link at another site, though I also remember the post indiebass pointed out. Pperhaps that's where my confusion stemmed from @_@

That was truly horrible.

This was cute in its simple, quirky way -- it would've been a perfect act for the Gong Show, way back when.

That was truly awesome.
