    Speaking as a disabled (mental in the legs), I may have to do this at an open mic.

    In addition to respecting disableds, we must all remember to never pick up dwarves. They aren't babies, they're just small - and they have rights. Spread the word and peace out guys.

    There's something very "Bowie" about this performance. Genius. Too ambitious, too immature, too naïve, too clichéd... He hit the nail on the head.

    Ricky has a gorgeous voice and he also created these musical masterpieces. I want this to play at my funeral.

    I queued this up on my sister's laptop when she was supposed to be doing the worship projection at Church last Sunday! This came on and the entire church watched about a minute of it before my sister turned it off. Needless to say - it was the funniest shit I have ever witnessed and I practically shat myself watching all these people sort of singing along thinking it was sincere! xDDDDDDDD

    I watched this, as somebody who is classed as having a disability, along with a friend whose girlfriend, who exploited her disability just a bit too much, had just split with him. Now he insists that had nothing to do with where I'm going with this, but...
    Somehow, at that moment, the song was the funniest thing in the world to us. He couldn't breathe, and I was more amused by how hard he was laughing.

    As much as I found this funny it was very sad for me to watch this film.
    I remember when I thought a band were my friends. So I drove them around every where to gigs. They never invited me for a drink when they did not have a gig or even gave me petrol money but I was so desperate for friends and to be a part of something I was just to deluded and desprate.

    I love that line. It just creates that grey area. You're not sure if he's got a good heart, or his wokeness is cynical and he's just trying to fit in/be trendy
