But-but-but-but, if you like Creed, you've got to like the obviously superior Alice in Chains band!

sorry, it just gets old after a bit


(As it may well be is almost definitely unclear, I was actually agreeing with Cal, and have no actual knowledge of whether or not he likes Creed or Alice in Chains.)

It is only slightly weird but definitely annoying when I can't find something in the store coughTargetcough because it turns out the employees have stocked it on the side of a weird waist-high end cap with totally unrelated merchandise... and not with the rest of the items in that brand/line in their usual spot on their usual, totally different aisle. Talking to other fans on a messageboard confirms this seems to be thing this store chain coughTargetcough is doing throughout Florida (Tampa and the panhandle too). Which seems dumb, if you want this stuff to sell.

I don't like that other people are weirded out by the word "moist".

It's just a word.

Actually, I do sort of like Alice in Chains. But never enough to buy their music. As far as Creed goes, in the late 70s and early 80s there was a band from Memphis named Creed and were far superior in every way to the Scott Stapp Mishap.

More like Scott, stahp, please.

Oh, yeah. This one. This...

So.

I sometimes casually mention that I'm not big on a lot of instrumental jazz- I regard the "one guy does a solo for six years while everyone else sits on their hands" aspects of many performances as narcissistic wastes of time*.

Heaven help me, it seems I'm not allowed not to like what other people do.

And it goes beyond music- there's a bar in my hometown that I absolutely loathe. It's dangerously crowded, the ceiling is low, it has no dance floor to speak of despite billing itself as a music venue, and so on. And when I mention this, people crawl out of the woodwork to defend their favorite watering hole... not to the people around me who might be "poisoned" by my opinion, but to me. Dude. I hate it there. Do you REALLY want me in your watering hole spewing out bad vibes? Just let me not like it and stay away.

*

Spoiler:
This is somewhat complicated by the fact that SOME musicians are so good at it that I forgive them- but I'm sorry, University Jazz Major, you're not John Coltrane, and I would like you to wrap your damn solo up so we can get out of this miserable concert hall you all seem to think should be your venue.

Right?!

And the part where I had to answer the Questions Three and lift some kind of ancient Hittite blood-moon curse via Theosophic magick to reveal the Hidden Aisle was a REAL time-waster. Gah.

“Here. While you’re waiting for a painful procedure or possibly terminal diagnosis, listen to this person complain that they want space for their Hummel figurines while their partner wants a pool table and they can’t have both and still get a 1700s Colonial with all-new fixtures in a cute neighborhood walking distance from both their job and an artisanal Mason jar store.”

The last time I went to the hospital for a surgery they had it set for the Food Network. Remember, I hadn't eaten ALL DAY.

Gah. That’s unacceptable. I’d branch out from tables. And not a jury in the world would convict me for all the property damage.

The jaw has had 430 million years to evolve, and yet I still, still occasionally try to eat my own face.

When I try to tell a story about something that happened to me or someone the person listening says, "That's nothing. You should have blah blah blah." Listen you rat scum, it IS SOMETHING important to me. So sit down and shut up. This happens a lot with one of my part time players. I have actually shouted at him about it during gaming stories but he has yet to learn that soon, very soon his character is going to get cooties that can be healed or something.

Combat Rock is a great song of theirs.

What about Modest Mouse? ("Dashboard" is catchy as hell).


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Are you asking me those questions? The only "Combat Rock" I know of is an album by The Clash. As for Modest Mouse, I have never heard a single song by them.


Laura Kinney? I'm down for that x-23 action.

So much. And also books. Especially books.

I'm an English (and social science) teacher. I read. I read a lot. I write a lot. And since I read and write a lot, I generally know how my taste as a reader works and why something falls flat for me.

Now and again, I'll reread a lot of things if I feel I've been unfair to them, and it sometimes changes my opinion. But if someone demands that I change my mind when I'm not ready to dive back into what I found a joyless slog/glosses over my reasoning for not enjoying something? Pike off.

My old car was a 2009 model, and I've recently had to replace it with a 2018. The old car had a standard key for the ignition, and the new car has the push-button keyless ignition.

The weird thing that annoys me: I have missed the evolution in car key technology where I get to walk out to my car in the parking lot and push a button on my key fob so that my car's key pops out, switchblade style.

I taught second graders the difference and they mastered it within about a week.

If a 7 year old can do it, a grown adult should be able to. "You're lazy or your brain is broken if you can't tell the difference." See how easy that is?

I may not be cutting up chicken (I have a quirk where touching wet or moist food really makes me uncomfortable) but this is a big pet peeve of mine. A friend of mine has Aspberger's and he just doesn't pick up the cues I put out about it. I've even told him to call first but he just doesn't get it.

I wouldn't say it's completely redundant, signing one's name serves a useful decorative purpose. Just like you don't have to add the 'wee little' in 'that's a wee little bit mentally scarring', it serves to further refine and/or emphasize what one is trying to say.

Signing your name after a post on an internet forum is a way to hark back to the formalities of a bygone era, and thereby make your post sound either far more high-faulutin', or merely more pretentious, as determined by context and the content of the post.

It's also a half-way decent way of concluding a longer post, some of which really benefit from that measure of formality, rather than just cutting off at the end of the author's last train of thought.
