The rest of you can feel free to ignore it. Go back to Conor’s delightful post, if you must.

But with God as my witness, I will not let Kevin escape this.

    I think, buried somewhere in that song is the elusive “Brown Note”

    Either that or it was the song that stunk up the joint!

    She’s right. I can’t read-a her pokerface.

    Of course it is easy to keep a pokerface when you cover it with hair, makeup, and a extreme high collar dress/coat/whatever.

    DG,

    I guess it’s good that I have a flush then.

  • 4 Setsuled on May 29, 2009 at 2:42 pm

    Ah, the song that is now legend. But to truly explore the roots of “Poker Face”, one needs to go back to that magical day when Mike Tyson approached Gaga with a song he’d written for her to sing (don’t ask what made Tyson give her that nickname).

    You know, I was going to make some joke about that growth in her hair, like how it’s a muppet-Kuato or something, but then I realized that she made a bow in her hair with her hair.

    Is Poe’s Law applicable to hair?

  • 6 Ryan on May 29, 2009 at 3:15 pm

    Great. I think Kevin is dead again.

  • 7 FokusLop on May 29, 2009 at 4:02 pm

    Good article, Thanks. my name Philip.

    Is it just me… or did she forget pants? Is that how we play the piano now? I’m frequently behind the times and need someone to update me on piano playing style.

    And botox

    O Leigh Shi’ite, She’s a REPLICANT!

    She’s got Pris’s hair, Rachel’s wardrobe, and Roy Batty’s Rhyme-skillz.

    Tyrell Corporation’s Nexus-FAIL model, ladies and Gentlemen.

  • 11 randommanthefirst on May 29, 2009 at 6:14 pm

    She just killed so many baby angels by singing that.

  • 12 Roper on May 29, 2009 at 6:49 pm

    Ut ut oh…Russian roulette really isn’t the same without a gun…damn.

  • 13 MonkeyCheezPants on May 29, 2009 at 9:16 pm

    Preempting the inevitable Richard Cheese version, I see.

  • 14 Wook on May 29, 2009 at 10:15 pm

    Aw, she’s just bluffin with her muffin.

    She sure does lurch around a lot, huh?

  • 15 Fantagor on May 29, 2009 at 11:48 pm

    An acoustical version of a song so musically thin that it’s invisible under an electron microscope. “Safety Dance”, anyone? Yeah, me neither.

    I think I recognize the collar on her shirt – isn’t it just a black version of the collar worn by the keeper in Aeon Flux?

    The keeper was the 500 year old guy in the dirigible.

    So….This is how the aliens will invade.

    Why

    WHY

    WHY COULDN’T IT HAVE BEEN LIKE INDEPENDENCE DAY!?!!?!?!?!

  • 18 Jana on May 30, 2009 at 3:38 am

    Her bangs are eating her face. Nice thigh bruise too.

  • 19 Spooky Janelle on May 30, 2009 at 5:44 am

    Oh Dan… :D

  • 20 Shadoestar on May 30, 2009 at 9:42 am

    Dear Lady GaGa,

    Please stop making music. The human race will thank you for it. And while you’re at it, get a decent haircut and wardrobe.

    Thank you.

  • 21 Mike Finley on May 30, 2009 at 10:57 am

    PS… stop bluffin with your muffin. Please.

  • 22 Kevin Murphy on May 30, 2009 at 11:20 am

    Dear Bill:

    Please go directly to Hell.

    Affectionately,

    -kwm

  • 23 Mystok on May 30, 2009 at 1:29 pm

    I really wish she would just stop the acoustic versions of her songs. She does well enough with the dance-trance versions. Maybe it is the muffins she is baking in her hair (hence the ear-like hairy things on top of her heard) that is screwing with her song decision making or it could be going without pants for so long or using zippers as eye makeup…..

  • 24 karen on May 30, 2009 at 7:07 pm

    yeah like all songs its popular …for now but what is the long standing popularity of it after….a month? a year?

  • 25 kipsy on May 30, 2009 at 11:44 pm

    I don’t know. I’d never heard her before. This isn’t so bad. She’s also a little more charming than I’d idly imagined.

  • 26 Lexie on May 31, 2009 at 3:26 am

    I heard that line and thought, “What the hell, I must be going crazy.”

    And then, no.

  • 27 Mstmompj on May 31, 2009 at 4:44 am

    Well, she sings a cappella better than I’d have thought. Kinda defeats the point of a techno/dance song, though.

    Maybe she doesn’t wear pants so that her muffin can be permanently set on stun? Or is her “muffin” that bobbing thing on top of her head?

  • 28 Ryan on May 31, 2009 at 7:17 am

    And say “Hi” to Leonidas for me, too.

  • 29 jfe on May 31, 2009 at 9:20 am

    Any spikes in your blood pressure, Mr. Murphy?

  • 30 Mstmompj on May 31, 2009 at 2:04 pm

    Ack! Must not post so early in the morning.

    It’s her “love-glue-gunning” with which she stuns and her muffin with which she bluffs. Duh!

  • 31 Molly on Jun 1, 2009 at 2:26 am

    She looks like Janice from The Muppet Show. I can’t believe no one else had said it.

  • 32 MonkeyCheezPants on Jun 1, 2009 at 3:03 am

    “Kinda defeats the point of a techno/dance song, though.”

    They have a point?

  • 33 CrowTeeRobot on Jun 1, 2009 at 6:47 am

    GET OUT! AND STAY OUT!

  • 34 CrowTeeRobot on Jun 1, 2009 at 6:48 am

    Oh, for sure, like, really.

  • 35 Earl Fando on Jun 1, 2009 at 10:49 am

    I thought you were kidding, until I saw that “Affectionately.”

  • 36 Coderjoe on Jun 10, 2009 at 8:03 pm

    So then, I’m sure you’ve seen this….

    Someone please let me know if I just posted the same comment three times! It vanished and I thought I’d messed up, so I reposted it. If this one vanishes too, then never mind. Argh !

  • 38 RedQueen on Jun 14, 2009 at 5:57 pm

    Yeah, the “Electric Mayhem: Behind The Music” Janice from Robot Chicken. “Tommy Lee gave me Hepatitis!”

  • 39 RedQueen on Jun 14, 2009 at 7:34 pm

    Pants. Look into it.
