Good point, Stalgie. I find a lot of songs now to be sort of interchangeable.

I have to agree to disagree on that, Cleome. I think Brandon Flowers's Bowie/Ferry imitations are the lesser of two evils, compared to Jeff Tweedy's All-American little-boy whine.


Oh, is that what Flowers was trying to pull off? I wish every Killers song I heard didn't sound like somebody composed the lyrics on a deli napkin five minutes before entering the studio. Feh.

Ha! I happened to be listening to the Killers when reading the above post. wink

I'm going to say that modern video games are overrated - for all that spastic manual effort, it's like masturbating without knowing if you're ever going to get to come... wink

I think modern video games have just become player controlled summer blockbusters. The simplicity of the gaming experience is lost to an emphasis on increasingly photorealistic graphics and squeezing every last dollar out of the customer by forcing them to constantly buy DLC and expansion packs. shake

Can't help you guys with this one. The last time I paid attention to games, it was all about PacMan and Qbert.

Ibby can get promoted from small fowl like pigeons to bigger beasts like lions and tigers.

I'm actually happy about the rise of the bears in the gay community because the Chelsea Boy clone look from the 90s/00s was fascist and completely overrated

I'm just happy that different "types" are being celebrated now. Not everyone has to fit into the same mold to be considered attractive.

Okay this is gonna' cost me all my friends, but... [clears throat]

Girl Scout cookies suck. I'd rather gnaw on the empty packaging, or The Sid's cat kibble, than eat those things.

I have the most incurable sweet tooth of anyone I know, so... if you hold out a plate of sweets to me and I say, "Uh, no thanks," you know those are some seriously Z-Grade sweets, okay?

Flame away, Family.

I don't think they're the best cookies by any stretch of the imagination, but I've always enjoyed the shortbread-y ones (Trefoils?)

And the S'more ones they're introduced this year -- I love 'em to bits.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that, when it comes to food, I'm generally easier to please than with, say, entertainments and/or arts.

I fully respect your opinion on this, Cle, and don't feel that strongly one way or the other.

shrug

But catharsis, that's always good. And necessary. So I'm glad you got it out in the open. smile

Most podcasts could be pruned by 2/3rds if the speakers avoided laughing at their own jokes and rambling on about nothing in particular. Or about things relevant only to their immediate circle of offline friends.

shrug

I never knew how much I liked mainstream radio slickness and routine, impersonal patter until friends started recommending various podcasts to me.
