It's Australia, nature will probably take care of it.

50 of those were purchased by the drunk, mentally ill, or as gag gifts.

Meh....I think nature will take care of that for us.  And by "nature", I mean great white sharks, crocodiles, box jellysfish, Sydney funnel web spiders, etc.

Most of them likely did it by accident, or as a misguided gift for their niece.

That sounds like something I would do for shiggles with the feminists in my life. I consider myself one, but I feel that if you can't make fun of yourself then you have no right to make fun of others....and I REALLY want to make fun of others.

He is just misunderstood, he will come into his own like Kanye, and then he will marry Paris Hilton, and he and Kanye will then collaborate on a record that uses no samples or hooks from other artists and when listened to will immediately cause peace in the middle east, solve global warming, and cure aids.

farking haters.

Okay, so the last item from this guy caught fire and sold... not even millions of copies. And how long did that take to go from publishing to over play to "sound of 2013"? And now everyone is shiatting themselves because his first week, including a US holiday, is slow?
 
2014-07-10 02:44:03 PM  
But how many illegal downloads has it had?  Millions I bet

I did not know he had relatives down under. Or maybe some buggas bought it to play while romancing their sheep. Buggas.

Hopefully those same 54 people will demand their money back....BTW - why should we even care
about Robin Thicke, especially if he is related to 1980s icon Alan, who deservedly is on the pile
with yesterday's moldy mashed potatoes.

that is what happens when you try to monetize your makeup songs....

We got our friend a blow up sex toy sheep, she thought it was funny until her 4 y/o got a hold of it.  Then she started finding it in the weirdest of places, she'd wake up and it would just be sitting on the dinning room table or worse the kid would use it as a pool toy.

I always thought there were more stupid people in Australia. don't take it personally, Australia, I think there are more stupid people everywhere.

Stupid people don' last long in places where half the arachnids can inject you with enough venom to kill an elephant, despite the fact their diet consists of fruit flies.

Clearly, this is the Internet's fault, and millions of Australians have already pirated the album.


I mean, he knows they wanted it.

Who woulda thought shiatty songs about stalking would be less popular than shiatty songs about assault.
 
2014-07-10 03:44:25 PM  
Jeeze... johnny the local meth/heroin addled dive bar guitar plucker can sell more self burned discs for an evening of drunken crooning.

Here's to hoping his stank rubbed off on the Cyrus family and we can stop seeing/hearing about them soon too.
 
2014-07-10 04:06:43 PM  
Wow.  What a huge Paula shiat.
 
2014-07-10 04:26:33 PM  
Reading the article more carefully, it seems to indicate that the album wasn't on some top 500 sales list, and #500 sold 55 copies, therefore it sold 54 copies (or less).  Was it even released in Australia?  Methinks no, so no albums sold because none existed to be sold.

Who buys an album in this day and age?

A US holiday that most stores were open on?

I'm going to buy Imelda May's new one - Tribal - tomorrow. There are artists I want to saupport

There are less than 23 million people in Australia?  I had no idea that country was so sparsely populated.

According to Fark, it's surprising anybody here is still alive.

whither_apophis: But how many illegal downloads has it had?  Millions I bet


I took a look at What, KickAss, and the Bay and it looks like it's been downloaded around 20,000 times.  The majority of downloads came from KickAss.  Only around 600 people or so downloaded it at What.

Of course, I have no way of checking direct link sites like NewMusic or SLSK.

I suppose you could be very generous and assume around 50,000.  No where near millions though.

I imagine it's more of a case where people want to check how awful it is and laugh at it and will probably delete it from their hard drives.

The RIAA website shows millions!!!

Something like 98% of the population lives on the coast because if you go 50 miles inland it turns into a desert that makes Death Valley look hospitable.

Shiggles?!! I friggin' love that and am promptly stealing it. Thanks cool hippie kid!

The guy hasn't made a good song in his life. Why are we surprised when his album flops? We should be surprised that his rape song became as popular as it did.

First time I click on a link with Robin Thikes in it,  Every time i saw the name I though it was  about Alan Thike.
I blame "How I met your mother."
