My animated nature and odd comments that are more apt to cause one to roll their eyes at me than to lead to an adoring legion of followers is still, by definition, entertaining. I make an ass of myself, say things that are obviously untrue or intentionally mangled. I am a "strange kid" with "an odd-shaped melon", but I try to make sure everybody around me is having as much fun as I am.
Some of the more foolish things I have gone on about are pertaining to the abolishment of woman's suffrage or the hand dominance implied by the bigoted gum ball machines (they cause quite the problem for a left-handed child). Gum ball machines aside, I do often make sarcastic comments about women knowing their role and doing proper woman work. These are over the top remarks about dishes, dinner, oral sex, or other things that would play into the chauvinist's ideal world. I find it incredibly fun when my girlfriend joins in with remarks or playing the role of the 'proper' woman.
Rarely do I take issue with things, but here is a short list of what bothers me: Reference to ATM machines, PIN numbers, VIN numbers, etc.
Anybody that argues that Jimi Hendrix simply flipped a guitar upside-down and played it without flipping the strings.
The snapping of chewing gum.
The ability to type seemingly without knowledge of grammatical code (listen kids, learn where to use an apostrophe, capitalize proper nouns, learn what a homophone is and how this comment applies, do not use a single letter or number in place of a word unless that letter is 'a', 'I', or occasionally 'O'- though I'd much prefer 'oh'). Please conjugate. The next person to say "I seen (anything)," is going to get beaten.
The dots on my friend's Guitar Hero controller are not in the proper location for dots on a real guitar. For those interested, markings on a real guitar are usually on the following frets: 3, 5, 7, 9, 12, 15, 17, and 19. These are guidelines and not all guitars have all of these fret markings.
Using things without my permission.
The reluctance to learn or the scoffing at one that is more intelligent. You're right, they are making you look dumb. And the fault is your own.
Anybody that goes to the counter at a fast food shit hole and asks about the price of something they didn't bother looking for on the menu.
I am also a part of the obligatory social networking sites. I enjoy MySpace MySpace, but loathe FaceBook.
Please don't drop me a message saying that my links are wrong. Why would I link somebody to a page I hate?
I am entertaining, facetious, and mildly obsessive
I don't watch a load of movies, but some of my favorites have been American Beauty, Boondock Saints, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and Office Space. My DVD collection is incredibly limited, but you can be certain that it is full of solid movies. "Dude, Where's My Car?" need not apply.
My music collection isn't nearly as eclectic as I'd like, but it's a work in progress. I enjoy Soundgarden, Nirvana, Metallica, Muse, Led Zepplin, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Jimmy Eat World, Green Day, Weezer, The Foo Fighters, and a load of others.
Salt & vinegar chips are the bane of my existence. There really aren't a great number of foods I prefer against, let alone hate, but salt & vinegar chips are at the top of the list. I really enjoy all sorts of food and am always up for trying new things. Chinese, Mexican, and Italian are always options unless there is something more interesting on the horizon. I also spend a stupid amount of time at a local Coney Island.
Friends & family. They mean a great deal to me.
Music. A well written song speaks volumes more than words alone could.
My guitar. I don't believe I am addicted to anything aside from my guitar.
Books. There is a great amount of information available. I have yet to scratch the surface.
My car. I have a stupid amount of independence and I really like the ability to come and go as I please. I usually prefer to chauffeur than ride shotgun.
Money. It is just silly how often I am thinking of such a petty subject. That's alright by me, though, because I am always thinking of ways to get more money.
I strongly encourage everybody that drops by here to request a WTF report, as they are rather interesting to me. I don't care what the match, friend, or enemy scores are, I am just curious.
