I'm So Uncool. Or, A Few Things I'm Supposed To Like But Don't.
Never before has such a middle-of-the-road nonthreatening group of crybabies had so much praise heaped upon them by jock-riding wordsmiths. Despite what millions of "Rock Journalists" would have you believe, when it boils down to it, Radiohead is really only good at one thing: Making records that would cause you to fall asleep at the wheel, if you should be so stupid as to put on a Radiohead CD while operating a motorized vehicle. I've never even listened to a Radiohead album in its entirety. B-to-the-ORING.
The Goonies, or as fan's affectionately refer to it, just Goonies is an impossibly overrated film. I'm all for nostalgia(4) but saying Goonies is a must-see flick is clearly a case of clouded judgement based on sentiment for the old days. I watched this for the first and only time last year, at the insistence of my GF, and was bewildered by the blandness of a film I'd been told my whole life was like, "the best movie ever" or something. Yeah, it's the best movie ever...for taking a nap to. Snoozefest.(5)
First of all: fuck junkies and fuck suicide. OK, just had to get the out of my system. There is no denying Nirvana was the proverbial foot-in-the-door alternative/grunge/sort of punk/whatever band of the 90s. I was there and I got totally into all of it...except for Nirvana. I just couldn't. Everything Nirvana and Cobain did seemed completely contrived, purposeful and lacking in authenticity. And most of all, it was just, well, really irritating. So what if Nirvana was influential and paved the way. Great. Thank you so much for Courtney Love, mustard colored cardigans, Puddle of Mudd, and Jax Teller's haircut.(7)
(dis)Honorable Mention: The Beatles, Motorhead, old Soul and R&B music, Irvine Welsh novels, Jay-Z, video games, Facebook(8), and Twitter.
1-The Bad Waitress: aptly names, overtly kitsch and over-priced. And for some strange reason every sandwich has to have spicy Dijon mustard on it...even the one that doesn't say so on the menu.
2-Team Viggity bitch!
3-Cheat Meal bitch!
4-Read this blog much?
5-Literally. I fell asleep about 15 mins in.
6-I actually like Sushi.
7-I actually like Jax Teller's haircut.
8-I finally caved in and made a FB page. The very first thing in my news feed was this:
Last night as #### was reading his Bible and going through a study with the kids, #### (3yo) was looking in his picture Bible and said, "Dad, my Bible has lots of Jesus." - It just made us smile.
-####### and 11 others like this.
-###### said: So sweet!! "Let the little children come unto me". What's not to smile about?
