Yes.

- I believe that...well...Terell Owens to the Cowboys, eh? Meh. Eh. Meh. He'll make a difference, not enough of a difference, and we'll all be quite annoyed.

- Though the Dominicans are out of the WBC, they still pwn the living fuck out of your team.

- Around the Horn is the best show ever.

- Gilmore Girls remains the worst show ever and the worst thing that has ever happened.

- Being a fan of any of the following earns you a life of ridicule for being a scenester unoriginal fuck, you worthless fucks (unless your name is ninthlayer, in which case you're exempt from my hatred but not my resentment but god I love you):

John Cusack
The film "Snatch"
John Cusack
The film "Empire Records"
David Bowie (if you became a fan after 2003)
Johnny Cash (if you became a fan after 2003 or you think he did the original versions of "Personal Jesus" and "Hurt")
John Cusack
The film "Kill Bill: Vol. 1"
The film "Kill Bill: Vol. 2"
John Cusack
High Fidelity
BritPop in all its forms at any point in your life (Oasis praise is punishable by death)
John Cusack

- Chop up some bacon, fry it up with some onion, garlic, butter, and tiny sausage bits. Do what you will to a baked potato with those ingredients. Splooge on.

- Laundry time again. I absolutely hate getting the itches from overwashed clothing. What do YOU do when you use too much soap and want to avoid itchiness? Do you plunk down the extra cash for a soap-free rinse? Do you hand-rinse? Do you just deal with it? WHAT IS YOUR METHOD?

That's all for now.

I've never bought into the concept that you should base your opinion on that of others' - either liking something because everyone else does, or hating it for the same reason. I've been meaning to get friends together and watch "Empire Records" for some time, because I only have extremely vague memories of it and I'm on an early 90's teen movie kick.

Also, I find the Cowboys unique in terms of the NFL. There are a couple teams I hate, and like hating, such as Tampa Bay and especially Oakland. They're fucking evil teams and I like to see 'em lose. Gives the game personality. Dallas, however... I utterly loathe. I don't want to see them win, but I also don't want to see them lose - I just don't want to see them exist. And having TO move there is like two supermassive black holes of NFL scum are merging into a wretched force of decay that will eat away at the league from the inside out.

It's not that what was mentioned was even so bad, or the unoriginality that really gets to me. It's more the people (and god knows there are so many of them) that base their personalities around the aforementioned people and movies.

Snatch was fun.

I concur, except see above.

Aside from a few badly-done accents, I don't really think anyone bases anything around Snatch.

Watching movies is like personality shopping to people who are just too lame to make friends by being themselves. They find one character that they admire, and stop at nothing until society perceives them the same way that they perceived that character.

Because being cool is much more fun than being real.

EXACTLY.

It's actually one of my favourite movies and I'm about as far away from being a scenester as a dog's tail. How is liking them unoriginal? I've also been a fan of Britpop since I was 10. Just because some asspussies think diggin' something from 1994 is all retro and sweeeet, don't think liking the thing in general makes one an asspussy*.

I liked Snatch, but thought Lock Stock was superior. The Kill Bill movies are alright, in fact great in some respects, but just not my thing. I loved early Blur, but went off of them when their sound changed drastically around the time of their album "13". I also liked early Oasis, but went off of them probably around the same time.

Edit: Empire Records is good, but overly emotional. High Fidelity is alright. I'm mostly indifferent about John Cusack, but he's a competent actor, even though he takes himself too seriously. I read that he's ashamed to have been in Con Air. And there's nothing wrong with people only recently discovering Johnny Cash, in fact I love that he still has such appeal. Of course, I've been listening to him for 20 years myself, but I was fortunate to have a mother that loved country music.

You've done it again! You've managed to sum up exactly how I feel in a way that I am too impatient to write.

As for Blur; it was when Graham Coxon left. Once he went, they became all experimental and Radioheadified (which is a bad, bad thing in my eyes).

K I was scared it was illegal to enjoy any of those movies, because that's what your post made it sound like. Snatch is a movie I enjoyed very much and I'd get all :( if you didn't approve. Lolz snatch.

And I saw the word "Radiohead" in this thread. God are they horrible.

Still, I appreciate you hatred for Oasis and I know I have shitty tase in men, actors and movies. So it doesn't suck at all.

I believe this is good and sound advice and JN should stop complaining about his itchy shirts.

Is he dislikes them so much, he should stop wearing them and go out topless.

I know Mota Boy isn't around anymore, but prior to this most recent season, why would anyone think the Bucs are evil? Oakland, I totally understand. The Cowboys, I could see that. But Tampa? Unless your a Falcons fan I mean cmon...

Also, I like Snatch and Cusack's allright. Though I always mix him up with Kevin Costner. I think. I don't know much about actors.

And there he was, in flesh, John Cusack in Bronx - a virtual impossibility but so real all the same. And with his eyes wide, his mouth slack with the tension pulsing through the air between him and Ricky, John Cusack swallowed hard and dropped his gaze to his feet.

"I ..I like Kill Bill films."

Ricky's heart sank to his knees as John was confessing to him. "I don't know what I was saying, dude," he said, his shoulders sagging the slightest. "It was 2006. I mean, fuck. I used to watch wrestling."

John's eyes were filled with mist and a new kind of hope. Sun began setting against the New York horizon as he leaned in towards Ricky, reaching out in passion so potent it ached.

"Start anew?" John asked.

Ricky could only smile. "Let's watch Snatch."

"Show me how to compose on a Gameboy afterwards?"

"Fuck yes." Ricky paused as they both settled on his couch in front of the television set. "John?"

"Yes?"

"I love you sfm you liberal whitey."
