How could a company that had built such customer loyalty be, at the same time, so tin-eared to what those customers wanted and so slow to respond when they made their wishes clear?

I made a thing.
Inspired by this, of course.
OMG, this is perfect in every way
I’m going to go ahead declare this my favorite thing of today. Sorry next 12 hours, you can’t top a Violet/Emily showdown poster.
There will be trolls among you: this we know. We ask only that you remember that we’re people—fairly nice ones—and that your mother would want you to be polite.
October 18 marks the 50th anniversary of West Side Story, the acclaimed musical about two star-crossed lovers in 1950s New York City and the racial prejudices that keep them apart. In honor of the occasion, LIFE.com takes a look back at the evolution of the show—which made its Broadway debut in 1957 and was adapted into an Oscar-winning movie in 1961—from stage to screen.

Cher Lloyd ft. Mike Posner - “With Ur Love”
A few months ago, I was convinced Cher Lloyd was one of the worst pop acts to come out of X Factor. There was no redeeming value from “Swagger Jagger,” Unless it was meant to be some horribly aggravating joke.
But this song has made me rethink my quick dismissal of the British singer. Posner’s verse is pretty horrible, especially the ick factor of the “yummy” line, and the spelling of your is pointless, but it’s it has a fun bubbly chorus that I’ve had stuck in my head the past week. Here’s hoping Cher sticks to singing and stays away from rapping on the rest of her album.
I’m also curious to see if she mentions ‘swagger’ in every song. That must prove difficult eventually as there are only so many things you can rhyme it with.
I’m trying this whole ‘blogging about pop music’ again. We’ll see what happens! (And how long I can keep it going.)
Fall is almost here, which means one thing…
OH GAWD IT’S FRIDAY IT’S FRIDAY IT’S FINALLY HERE
…he seemed to say.
I don’t think I’ve ever been that excited about anything ever.
Why should Community and Parks and Rec get all the fan art? 30 Rock deserves some too and this is genius.
In 1945, Dorothy Parker sent a telegram from my soul.
When I was in high school, you’d have to be a megalomaniac or the most popular kid around to think of yourself as having a fan base. But people 25 and under are just being realistic when they think of themselves that way, says media researcher Danah Boyd, who calls the phenomenon “invisible audiences.” Since their early adolescence, they’ve learned to modulate their voice to address a set of listeners that may shrink or expand at any time: talking to one friend via instant message (who could cut-and-paste the transcript), addressing an e-mail distribution list (archived and accessible years later), arguing with someone on a posting board (anonymous, semi-anonymous, then linked to by a snarky blog). It’s a form of communication that requires a person to be constantly aware that anything you say can and will be used against you, but somehow not to mind.
