What are your guilty pleasures? That song you sing while alone in the car you would never be seen hearing anywhere else? That weird and normally off-putting dish you make yourself when no one's looking? Those sandals you put on while still wearing socks when at home by yourself?

I'll start:

-I can't go to sleep anymore if I don't play Candy Crush first.

-If I order McDonalds for takeout, I will put some of the fries inside the burger.

-I once finished a jar of Nutella with icecream... and I can't wait to do it again.


I still enjoy the blatant fanservice in some anime series...

You make that sound like a bad thing.


For some people, it apparently is. Anyway...

Would it be a guilty pleasure to enjoy Guilty Gear? :P


Not with all the cheesecake in it!

Hi, I'm Jesper, and I sometimes watch a whole episode of Top Gear without changing the channel...

I love to watch the Maury Povich show when they have the paternity and cheating lovers episodes on.

I...I play Pathfinder! *sobs*

I don't think there's anything I enjoy that I'm truly guilty of.
I guess I'm a time-tested geek who has come to terms with all the weird things I tend to enjoy.

That said, there's a lot of stuff I enjoy that people would never guess from looking at me.


Such as...?

I used to live with a guy who was a union carpenter. If he worked, he'd make more in a day than I did all week. If he didn't, he'd collect unemployment, still make more money than I did all week, hang around the apartment doing pills and watching daytime television.

I remember one time he was watching (I think) Jerry Springer, and they had a small bit in the middle about a paternity test. Jerry went out into the audience and this guy stood up and said:

"What I don't get is why are you two even here? You should be over on Maury!"

In other news, none of my pleasures make me feel guilty.


Brilliant! LOL

Well, when people see me and how I'm dressed (I'm 6'5", have long hair, a big goatee, and typically dress all in black) I think a lot of people assume I'm a metalhead.

So I get weird looks when I tell people I'm really into Fleetwood Mac or The Pet Shop Boys or, other pop music.

There was a music teacher at my unversity that, from looks alone, you would have assumed he munches on bat heads for breakfast and goes on murdering rampages with electric guitars that shoot lightning bolts by night.

Instead, he frolicked across the campus' gardens playing the flute. Scared the hell out of unsuspecting people (probably on purpose), but he was pretty good at it.

Ian Anderson has a lot to answer for.

I listen to a lot of classical. Not really a guilty pleasure, but it surprises a lot of people given that I'm generally into metal, industrial and rock, and I look it.

My actual guilty pleasures?

  • Paranormal Romance novels, as long as they're well written (no Twilight for me thanks). Again, surprises a hell of a lot of people given that I'm a stocky, heavily built bearded guy with a shaved head (literally shaved, not just clipped short)
  • Cheesecake, whether it is in the form of pinups or fanservice in anime
  • Certain children's shows, whether it's old stuff I watched as a kid that I still enjoy, like Biker Mice from Mars, Gargoyles and Mummies Alive!, newer action stuff like the ThunderCats reboot, or even Adventure Time and Gravity Falls (though anyone who has a problem with adults watching Gravity Falls clearly hasn't seen it and realised how much of a head trip it is. Not as much as Adventure Time, but it has a more coherent story to make up for it).
  • Singing along to pretty much anything I enjoy listening to
  • So-called Chick Flicks, as long as they're well written and produced (Sliding Doors is a personal favourite)

There's more, but I think that's enough of my embarrassing habits for now :P Not that I'm really ashamed of them, cause otherwise why would I share them with you all, but I do call them my guilty pleasures.


Sliding doors was awesome. +1 =)

I thought it was brilliantly made. The fact that it starred John Hannah was a big part of what made me love it as well, I adore him as an actor.

I can get behind most of this.

I honestly think Gravity Falls is now one of my favourite animated shows. Anything that in the first episode alone managed to give me gnomes who a) stacked on top of each other in order to wear human clothes and try to find a human girl to be their queen, b) vomit rainbows when punted in the stomach, and c) can combine into a giant mega-gnome already made it halfway to earning my undying love. Add in some surprisingly adult humour at times (considering it's a Disney children's show) and it's a winner for me. I'm also a big fan of President Sir Lord Quentin Trembley, III, Esquire, the 8th and a 1/2 President of the United States, who won by a literal landslide (it buried his opposition). He made the "Depantsination Proclamation", declared war on pancakes, appointed babies to the Supreme Court, and included the line "The only thing we have to fear is gigantic, man-eating spiders" in one of his speeches.

Adventure Time has become one of my guilty pleasure in the last year.

"ONE MILLION YEARS DUNGEON!"

NO TRIALS.

I listen to old radio detective serials.


* Crappy movies - If give the choice of watching and Oscar contender or Gymkata it's Gymkata every time

* Ice Cream Sandwiches, the cheap kind that stick to your fingers. None of that fancy dove bar crap.

* The Humpty Dance

* Mac & Cheese

* Linda Carter

Man, I can't even call Gravity Falls a guilty pleasure. I'm not at all ashamed to admit to watching it.


Not having television, I have no idea what these shows are or why they're so great.

The Three Amigos, Big Throuble in Little China and The Last Starfighter are still some of my favorite movies. I even liked Gymkata...


I LoVe LUV Love "Big Trouble in Little China"!


No guilty pleasures for me. I'm happy watching all the stuff I watch and doing all the stuff I do.

While I do beat monsters faces in, I still like to own and hug cute things and stuffed animals.

*when I first meet Lini*

Lini: "Hello."
Me: *Stare*............"aww, so cute!" *reaches down, picks her up and hugs her*
Lini: "Ahh! Droogami!"
Me: *gets killed by a snow lepored*

Also, I can't travel anywhere without my IPad full of pathfinder material.


I am very fond of jazz fusion, especially Return to Forever/Al Di Meola.

And pickled onions. If someone pickled Al Di Meola, I'd like him even more.

I am also oddly attracted to Nicki Minaj. Her, a larder full of pickles and 'Elegant Gypsy' on a loop would suit me just fine.

Sovereign Court

I paint little metal men and spend my entertainment money on books about wizards and dragons...

Um, so, yeah.

My musical guilty pleasures are probably a load of mid-nineties nu-metal.

Food-wise it would be the horror that is cheese doritos 'tastes like fake taste'!

Televisually, I watch a load of children's shows like Doctor Who and Merlin.

I also enjoyed some kids films like Pacific Rim and Avengers Assemble.

In all honesty though, I have never felt any guilt about these things.

I mean, if I drank Coca-cola then I would look at their list of economic and social crimes and feel incredible guilt at funding those scumbags but I don't. However, somehow, that isn't treated like a guilty pleasure because so many people indulge in it...

Fresh hot French fries with a vanilla shake. I dip the fries in the shake.

Also, I watch Spongebob marathons with my kids and enjoy it. Sometimes I watch all by myself.

Visual novels.


O god there is so much.. which ones will I admit too..

I like Pawn store shows, especially if they have cool antigues and art.

I am an obsessive collector of Miniatures. It's gotten to the really bad point of me owning over 7500 minis.

and I think that's all I want to admit to right now :P

I collect My Little Pony figures. I also like mayo on my fries; no ketchup or mustard.


hot wings and baconators and the love of a good woman... Not necessarily in that order....

I own exactly one My Little Pony figurine. Doctor Whooves. Because damn it, I couldn't resist. It's bloody David Tennant as a pony. I had to own it.

My favorite pizza topping is anchovies.

Moxie.

Twinkies.
This is from someone who normally east mostly local-sourced organic fooe. Yes, I know that's a been a cliche since at least 1976.

The hottest hot Buffalo wings that any particular establishment makes.

'80s hair metal.

Epic Rap Battles of History.

Star Trek novels.

The Paizo messageboards.


I sometimes listen to radio disney even when my son isn't in the car. I really like One Direction. I get teased about that mercilessly, but I really enjoy the music.

Cheesy/bad romance novels. I don't know which is more funny, the terrible editing or the physical descriptions that sound more like something you'd need medical attention for than anything remotely sexy. I read a truly embarrassing amount of these.

Cookie dough. Somehow it never ends up as actual cookies...

Not sure if this counts, but I can't visit a game store without buying dice. I love dice so bad.

I do much the same at conventions.
