I'll have to become one of google's "twerking" query stats.

T-Boy: I didn't have any clue what this "twerking" was, so I looked it up.  From Wikipedia:

"Twerking was introduced into hip-hop culture by way of the New Orleans bounce music scene. In 1993, DJ Jubilee recorded the dance tune "Do The Jubilee All" in which he chanted, "Twerk baby, twerk baby, twerk, twerk, twerk." . . .A great amount of credit for the expansion of twerking outside of New Orleans can be given to strip clubs in Houston and Atlanta. Twerking was receiving recognition in national releases at least as early as the year 2000, when the Atlanta-based Ying Yang Twins released their debut single "Whistle While You Twurk."

I get it now.  This is a "dance move" made popular by strip clubs in the South.  Wow.  This does not do anything for me.


1993? So that makes Miley and twerking the same age, then.

goatleggedfellow: Hebalo: Sigh. Macklemore brings it, presents a great song about tolerance and change that also points a finger at modern hip-hop, all done very tastefully, and yet, we have 4 threads on Miley Plasticpants Cyrus.

She's apparently what we deserve.

Macklemore's song is the most tiresome, over-done, self-flagellatory lump of choir preaching since the movie "Crash". It doesn't reach anyone that needs to hear the message, but gives white, liberal college students another reason to revel in their own tolerance. Eminem's public stunts were more impressive. A single quote from Jay-Z is more meaningful than anything Macklemore could ever do.


Agreed.   It's a homage to the 90s where music videos were about school shootings, teenage runaways, eating disorders or teenage runaways with eating disorders who commit school shootings.   No wonder that joyless, self aggrandizing, over earnest decade forever killed Rock music as the common coin of cool and fun for future generations, as it choked on it's own bloated sense of self importance.

I think we can honestly see her butthole in those shorts.

To be fair, that over earnest decade was about the only response one could expect after the previous decade's parade of "let's get drunk and screw" David Lee Roth and Poison videos.  I can only imagine what the '20s response to the '10s will be.

I predict the comeback of Dapper guys, flapper girls, prohibition, and abstinence before marriage.

Mad_Radhu: "Oh! That poor woman has the saddest ass. Damned depressing."

"Right! Yeah, it's like The Notebook sad."

"That ass is like coming home from school and finding out your old man ran over your cat sad."

"Mournful. She has a mournful ass. They're like a suicide note stuffed in to rubber panties."

"That ass is like a little kid with progeria cracking all his ribs trying to catch a Nerf ball. Just sad. Damnit she has a gloomy ass!"

"It's like she put a dollars worth of change into some old socks and then taped 'em to backside!"

"I wanna build two little caskets and give her ass cheeks a tasteful, dignified funeral."


That has to be one of the single funniest (and most unexpected) exchanges I've ever seen on TV.

I first learned the actual name for that dance move a few months back with a Cyrus "posts herself twerking on twitter" link.

A few days ago, there was a "photoshop Cyrus twerking in news situations we should be talking about" something or other.

Now this.

There is some serious twerk=Cyrus marketing going on.

pute kisses like a man: InmanRoshi: browntimmy: InmanRoshi: gwowen: I liked her better when she was tweeting about liking the Flaming Lips.  That seemed genuine.

Also, acting like a whore is not particularly empowering.  Acting like a whore in order to sell records, even less so.

You sound old and white.

Expressing her feminine sexuality shows strength and courage, as long as men aren't looking at it and thinking evil lustful thoughts, then it's objectification and oppression or something, is that about right?

.But she's okay as long as she voices admiration for a band pre-approved by old white Gen-X geezers.

wait, does being gen-x make you a geezer now?


The millenials are such cultural isolationists that they consider someone 2 years older than them to be a geezer.

I don't consider 26 year olds or even Gen X to be geezers. Hell, I actually really like the Gen X generation.

Oh, you've heard of it, because it's been around for decades.   We just have a new catchphrase for it, so it's "new".
