I loved him in Cee Lo & Stitch.

This guy had one - count em - ONE hit song .. which I didn't like especially.

Why the hell is he a major celebrity? I don't get it.

To be fair, he also had a hit when he was with Gnarls Barkley. Remember "Crazy"? That's the song whose hook sounds so similar to Adele's "Rolling in the Deep". The first time I heard her sing "We could have had it alllll.....", I was like, "What does that remind me of?"

I don't own any of his music, but I gotta say I think he stands out in a major way, in the contemporary pop landscape, both solo and with Gnarls Barkley. Good for him.
 
2012-04-29 06:22:57 PM  
His solo albums are great,but I'd like to see him back with Goodie Mob.

To be fair, I don't think Thagnuts one of those farkers that pretends not to know a celebrity in order to boost his hipster cred, I think he's asking why Cee-lo is so popular despite being less accomplished than other flash in the pan b-listers.

It's good to see at least two other Farkers know that Cee Lo wasn't just in Gnarls Barkley.

LOL QUE? Dude was in Goodie Mob and Gnarls Barkley, FFS. That's way more acomplishment than some "B-list flash-in-the-pan".

I know next to nothing about groups and singers, etc. After hearing "Crazy" I though Gnarls Barkley was a woman.

Who's angry? You took offense at someone saying "fark you" in a thread about a guy most famous for a song called "fark you." If you couldn't detect that the "fark you" in the thread was not serious, but rather a reference to the song, your funny bone may need a tune-up.

When did I take offense? My response included a "LOL", did you notice? That was an expression of amusement, in case you couldn't figure it out, not offense.
 
2012-04-29 09:01:05 PM  
And furthermore, in my defense, the filter changing the word to "fark" is probably why I didn't get the reference. Yes, I know what word it's supposed to be, but my brain doesn't immediately make the connection to the song unless the word is unfiltered.

It was actually intended as a legitimate answer to the question of why Cee Lo is famous. And a joke. I thought it worked pretty well on both levels, but I guess I could be wrong.

First time I heard Gnarls Barkley, I had no idea who they were - I only heard just a few seconds of a song before it ended. I swear I was racking my brain trying to figure out what song of Nina Simone's they had sampled, because I didn't recognize the lyrics as being a song she had ever recorded.

Once I got home, a GIS had me lol'ing at mydamnself.

This is Fark. It's full of snark. And as such, your "LOL," followed by a derisive statement about pop music being serious business, read to me - and apparently a few others - as if you were laughing at the person who wrote "fark you" because you thought they were serious.

Let's review the posts:


Thagnut:
This guy had one - count em - ONE hit song .. which I didn't like especially.
Why the hell is he a major celebrity? I don't get it.

Neeek:
fark you.
[making joking reference to the song]

B.L.Z. Bub:
LOL. "POP MUSIC IS SRIOS BIZNESS, AND DONT YOU FORGET IT!!!!11!"
[apparently laughing at Neeek, and making fun of him for taking pop music seriously enough to insult Thagnut]

Neeek:
fark you too. [again referencing the song in jest]

B.L.Z. Bub:
(somebody-needs-a-hug.gif)
[this image is pretty much always posted in response to someone becoming way too serious about something, so unless you don't know the meme as it's used here on Fark, it's reasonable to assume you still thought Neeek was serious]

So either...

1) You did think Neeek was serious and are backpedaling now.

2) You didn't think Neeek was serious, but still, for reasons that are unclear, twice used a style of sarcasm known around Fark to indicate you are laughing at someone for being serious - even though you now say you were using that sarcasm as "an expression of amusement."

3) I'm completely confused and have completely misunderstood you.

I'm open to the possibility of #3, but if #3 is the case, why post in a manner that made it seem like you were being sarcastic instead of "amused"?

When did I miss the transition of Fark turning into a grumpy old man destination? I come here for these people to be made fun of, dammit, not to read "Who is this guy, why is he famous bla bla bla" crap.
