My pick for the new Season 2 cast of “True Detective”:

    Sadly, I only knew who Geroge Brett is. I need to get out more.

      I think I might be more sad that I do know who Lorde is

      Why “sadly?” I never heard of her either. First thought on seeing the title of the post is George Brett met Madonna’s daughter and her name was misspelled.

    I think this is a sign of the rapidly approaching singularity. Best get on the ark now.

      Mmmmmm, Russell Crowe.

    I wonder if he shared any of his gastrointestinal Vegas stories with her.

    Saw her briefly at Coachella and was not impressed

    She’s a Kiwi. Never met a Kiwi I didn’t like. Hope she has a great career. My daughter digs her stuff. I’m going to wait till Lorde covers a Pat Bennetar ode before I render my opinion on her vocal stylin’s, though.

      That’s Benatar in the US.

    “Hey, girl…did I ever tell ya ’bout the time I sht my pants?”

      At least once a day someone posts a comment that makes me laugh out loud. Thanks aces

    Man does she look uncomfortable in that photo or what?

    • Caught Looking - Apr 16, 2014 at 2:50 PM

      She never cracks a smile in any pics.

      • ud1951 - Apr 16, 2014 at 5:48 PM

        That would pass for an awkward smile on her face, but she really looks like she thinks this guy is about to put his hand where she’d rather he not.

    He’s a millionaire, she sings about poverty. Nice.

    You may not like Lorde, but when I tried to get tickets to take my daughter to see her, StubHub’s cheapest prices for General Admission was $173/ticket. She’s dour all the way to the bank…
    And no, I didn’t pony up for the tickets. Might pay that for the Stones, but not Lorde…

    Right. She’s 17.

    And Brett is 26.
