@11:15am: Of course they think....they think of black people then they think of monkeys....isn't that the natural thought progression of most people?

Black people.....Actin' up since 1619 :-)

Someone posted that monkey pic on FB. It's a pic of a monkey before and after experiencing a cold stethoscope. So cute!

Sorry 11:08. I didn't make the association with the monkey pic and Kendrick Lamar. I don't know who Kendrick Lamar is or what (s)he looks like. But I'm sure you are correct. BV probably used the pic not because it's cute but to be a racist.

11:26 - And white people trying to profit from it ever since.

In my experience only racists like 11:15 immediately jump to making association such as the one he pointed out. Normal people don't even give it a second thought, more or less associate to the two. Normal people see people as people first, affiliations and such second.

Ah, I love the paradox of liberalism

sorry 11:37, not racism, as i scroll up the page i see the the headline starting "tame impala" - photo of tame impala (the band, not the animal), i see the headline starting "shiner" - photo of shiner, i see the headline starting "alt-j" - photo of alt-j, i see the headline starting "kendrick lamar" - photo of monkey. i in no way believe that bv is racist, i spend too much time on this site to believe that, but it was a dumb choice.

I only see a picture of a monkey. I have no idea what 11:46 is talking about.

And it is an adorable picture, really.

new baby gorilla born at the melbourne zoo...that's what that is.

Big gorilla at the Melbourne Zoo
Snatched the glasses right off my face
Took the keys to my BMW
Left me here to take his place

I wish the ape a lot of success
I'm sorry my apartment's a mess
Most of all I'm sorry if I made you blue
I'm betting the gorilla will, too

did the monkey that ate that chick's face consume bath salts first? Or just xanex?

who is kendrick lamar

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2012 12:12 PM

All I know is it's gonna be a sure-fire shitshow outside of Roseland on August 14th.

The posting of the monkey picture (too cute btw!) with a post that refers to Kendrick Lamar, as well as several other artists, is almost as big a controversy as NBC airing a monkey doing gymnastics after Douglas won gold.

12:11 that was Travis the chimp, who I believe has since returned to his owner

^ check that, Travis is dead

"He was subsequently shot dead on the arrival of the police, after trying to attack an officer."

LOL @ Travis the chimp
"Notable role: Pet, occasional actor"
That could describe nearly every band covered on BV

classic pic 12:38. what show was that taken at?

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2012 1:41 PM

12:38 is why I keep my wallet in the front pocket at those kind of shows

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2012 1:59 PM

Does it make me racist if I think the gorilla bears an uncanny resemblance to Jimmy Walker?

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2012 2:01 PM

That Gorilla is so cute!!!
