For those of you still unaware, I’m trying to spread the word about this to get as many people in the know as possible.
As you will find in the article linked to this picture, Glee has ripped off Jonathan Coulton with their newest acoustic rendition of Sir MixaLot’s “Baby Got Back” - a rendition completely identical to the one Coulton released in 2006 (you can find a side-by-side in the article) without contacting him beforehand. They even sing “Johnny C’s in trouble,” as Coulton did in 2006.
This is a disrespectful and shameful theft of intellectual property and it makes me sick - not only that they stole his idea without asking him or crediting him, but that if this song really does air in six days as is planned (which I hope to God it doesn’t), there will be thousands of people who will think that Glee came up with the idea to do an acoustic version of “Baby Got Back,” and Glee will take all the credit the Jonathan Coulton deserves.
Please, spread the word and contact FOX on Twitter, Facebook, what have you - let them know that what they’re doing is cheap and wrong.
i don’t listen to jonathan coulton or watch glee, but not crediting an artist is about the biggest dick move you can make without actually causing anyone physical harm
jesus fucking christ
oh my god this is NOT OKAY AT ALL
My mother is the most precious thing I have in my life. Maria Arreola, my loving mother, risked her life in (YEAR SHE LEFT MEXICO) when she left my abusive father and migrated to the U.S. seeking safety for her children and herself.
Last night, Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE), trespassed into to my home without a warrant and apprehended my mother. My brother, who was next door at a friends house, was also handcuffed and taken by ICE.
I can’t believe I am living this nightmare. I need your help! I cannot begin to imagine what my life would be without my mother. Right now your voice is the only thing that can help keep my family together.
We have to end this now. Help us keep this family together.

NAME: Nailla Robinson
APPEARANCE: Nailla stands about 40 inches tall and weighs around 35 pounds. She has a medium skin tone, brown eyes and black curly hair.
CIRCUMSTANCES: A woman entered the school and told school officials her name was “Tiffany,” and that she needed to take her daughter to breakfast. The woman then allegedly signed Nailla out of the office and took her away at approximately 8:50 AM on January 14, 2013. The woman was dressed in a traditional Muslim over-garment and Niqab. She has her face covered and only her eyes showing. She’s wearing gloves. She’s wearing all black. She has something white on her arm and she has a long black umbrella. The surveillance camera shows them walking through the hallway to get to the door. The next camera picks up and she’s putting her umbrella up.
