unless it's against foreign people, the swine
- Religious types/New Agers (esp: Mormons).
- Amateur comedians.
- People who still dress like The Strokes (it's seven years since they last had a decent song. MOVE ON ASSHOLES!).
- People who have terrible taste in things.
That is a drink not a type of person.
I realised that as soon as a pretty girl takes any prolonged interest in me, I tend to take it as a sign to go in for the kill. Ouch.
people who go on protests
and then jew black muslim etc
i just left the country for a bit.
i'm going to watch cool runnings in the pub now. alone.
-people who won't come to the pub with me
a budding romance on threads about hate!
and aborigines I'm sad to say.
also those who are intolerant.
yeah just the really really fat, I'd happily exclude them from activities purely because of their size, and failure to look after themselves.
it's really the best
shockingly ignorant/stupid types
people who base their whole schedule around TV programs
basically all of london
good looking people
i'm a horrible human being
people who have idea's above their station. im talking more in terms of clothes rather than social mobility. whats worse than a fat person in skinny jeans? absolutely nothing.
those who are too nice
men that sound like frank spencer that aren't frank spencer, e.g. really sexy man at work who turned out to have weird womanly undertone to voice. GOD IS SO UNFAIR
pre-raphaelite painters whose paintings are so much boring than they were and so are a bit disappointing
same with artists of the 60s like peter blake and patrick caulfield - you're all really boring, considering what an exciting decade you lived in. boring over-stylised commercial british art
people that walk slowly
people even shorter than me unless it's a diagonised condition
men who shout a lot in the company of other men (and all of the other men shout back obviously)
jews - i dunno, i automatically find jewish men much sexier, having dated mostly jewish men, which must be some kind of inverted racism on my part
i feel i should dislike the short but dont, as there are too many pretty petite girls to justify it
munchkin. its easier for a lady to be short than a dude i imagine.
its rly unmasculine and probably quite demeaning for a guy to be short.
*bangs head off doorway on way out*
my boyfriend looks jewish, although he insists he doesn't, he says he looks spanish.
Indoor scarf wearers
found myself standing next to some guy who was wearing sunglasses. IN A NIGHTCLUB. it was very noisy and stuff but i took out my phone and typed something along the lines of "why are you wearing sunglasses? in case you hadn't noticed, it is quite dark". he mumbled something back, and i spent the rest of the night kicking empty bottles at people
"...and i spent the rest of the night kicking empty bottles at people"
i'm glad you're not one of those people.
addition to my list of people i'm prejudiced against:
-people who take issue with things i do when i'm drunk
i am wearing a scarf inside AS WE SPEAK.
be off with you
and stop being wafty while you're at it.
where i come from it's WEAR MORE CLOTHES OR DIE. it's a philosophy that i like to stick to when possible. it's got me this far.
I've never seen a picture of a viking, raping and pillaging about the place wearing a goddamn scarf INDOORS.
Is that your rape and pillage face?
i could do with some quick cash.
you can pay postage
It not even close.
that was funny.
'Alan Zapsta' - I like it.
I wish you'd stop posting. Your posts lately have done nothing but hurt my feelings.
besides, you ditched me on saturday, i think i have the right to insult you a bit
"hey adam, come to the pub" "uhh. no."
With OTHER DISERS. You knew that neither was acceptable to me. I was virtually on my way to Victoria before these revelations came to light.
you didn't even get back to me before i was already in brixton so you have only yourself to blame. I TRIED.
Don't try to turn this round on me.
She doesn't know any better.
but groups would have to be
Morbidly obese people
People who have served time in prison
children (this was a joke - was it funny? EH?)
I really can't do with them. Bawling, mewling cabbages.
People called Hannah
People with brown hair
Little div, she is.
after seeing her bebo page, i decided an axe would be too messy, but a gun too quick. it will have to be my bare hands, until i can get her near a polar bear enclosure.
Georgia my middle name is elizabeth. This means if you were called Hannah then we'd have almost similar names, how crazy is THAT.
I actually mean white people
Part-time Vegetarians i.e. 'I only eat chicken once every 2 weeks.'
People that are prejudiced against other people.
People with B.O.
also Children who abuse people, little fuckers..
People who are 'fans' of things on Facebook.

When you just want to say WHO GIVES A SH!T to someones status
this could explain a thing or two
All public sector middle management
Football bores (not fans generally, just those cunts who are
literally incapable of talking about anything else, and find it
utterly incomprehensible that you're not all that bothered about watching 22 borderline rapists chasing a ball around a field)
Large groups of lads in sportswear who do not appear to be engaged in sports or on their way to/from a sporting engagement
Fat female office workers
People who are prejudiced against the armed forces
White boys who speak in that fucking ridiculous London multi-culti cod-Jamaican chav patois
it just saves time when I realise that they're not as cool as me.
people that live in south-west london and
people that live south-west of london and commute into Waterloo.
I live with a lot of them and it gets on my tits so much.
Ok when you get out of bed until you've had your shower, and in the hour before you're going to bed at night maybe.
But through the day - FUCK.
Also something I've noticed on house viewings:
- People who don't even make their beds. Not as in doing it every morning. People who regularly sleep with a bed that has a half-hanging off sheet or no quilt cover etc.
Finally: lads with ear rings / tattooz
+ long johns, joggers and vest.

people that order stupid coffees from starbucks
people that use windows and think it's great
people that go on and on about how rubbish religion is as if being an athiest is the pinnacle of intellectual achievement when it's just normal
people who go on package holidays
people who leave their keytones on when they text
teenagers. teenager are such cunts.
Guy's clearly a cunt.
You fucking bore-off. Banter is my life blood.
....the sort who fails to make smiles in a multi-coloured ball pit. You cant raise the laughs, so you go home and strangle your duvet.
people who are extremely obese.
people who are fakely orange from too much tanning.
um probably more.
also: people who are very Republican (US-politics wise) if i'm aware of it and they try to alter my viewpoints/preach me theirs.

Dyer's a legend
people who use 'sort of' a lot in a home counties accent
people with home counties accents. especially boys ones that are a bit gruff who laugh like...'HAWW HAWW HUH'
female guardian writers who do that semi-ironic 'i'm obsessed with celebs' schtick. listen bitch, no one gives a fuck about jienna or sude...not even to take the piss out of them or make jokes. they're literally nothing to anyone. stop mentioning them.
people who haven't been gifted with great looks, yet conspire to make their unlucky faces stand out even more by having a haircut so awful it's boderline satirical. seriously...probably £26 for a decent cut. sort yourself the fuck out you idiot, you look like you've been trapped in an austrian basement for 14 years.
people who disturb the peace of public transport with loud, banal conversations. or worse, people who try and make their friends on the other end laugh in these public transport phone conversations, but sort of also know that in doing this, they're trying to make the rest of the bus laugh. but they are never...ever...ever...ever. ever funny.
people in fancy dress. i've decided the only time i'll ever do fancy dress again is if it's a Mad Men theme.
people who wear big spastic hipster glasses without actual lenses. like those two dicks off celeb big brother.
people who look pretty cool but are complete dicks. it's easy to dress like james dean if you already look like him. now try and be a nice, funny, interesting person...no, see...you can't can you. killer boots though. you really do make it seem like the 50's or summit. well done.
people in suits in the city that walk fast with the phone in one hand and a coffee in another.
people that read as they walk. sit down you cunt before you walk into someone and ruin their day.
People who don't deserve to breathe the same air as me.
People who go to the gym.
People who buy pizzas from Dominoes when there's an equally good take-away across the road. They buy from Dominoes because it costs more and in their silly middle-class brains they think this means the food is of higher quality.
Middle class people who listen to drum and bass and go so far as to co-opt the slang associated with this style of music.
People who repeatedly fail to see that I am right about everything and always will be as long as there is still oxygen in my lungs.
Girls who wear ridiculously slutty clothes and then get pissed off when they attract looks.

People who fail to realize my brilliance.
People who immediately spill the beans to the fuzz when questioned.
People who lie about meaningless things.
I just don't know who to trust anymore.
I'm most prejudice to anyone i see, but have never heard talk.
If you don't like it, that's cool. But sneering at people who go to football/like football as if they're of a lower lifeform than you, and expressing bewilderment and genuine displeasure as to why competitive sports exist and are funded at the expense of chucking a couple of million to the likes of Emin or Ofili 'for the good of the nation'...
People with umbrellas at face height (especially when broken), people with wheeled luggage, Israelis (apparently this makes me a massive anti-Semite and worse than Hitler).

It's cyclists. I know people who own and ride bicycles. They're good people, people with many qualities who I love dearly. All cyclists are cunts though.
cunts. all of them.
Hippies, particularly those modern ones, you know - "Oh, my clothes are made out of hemp and I like wheat grass and I found myself at this peace festival and it was all really pro-active"
Cunts who aren't in my group of cunts
People who believe the shit mediums and horoscopes and palm and tarot card readers tell them
NONE OF THE SHIT THESE PEOPLE MAKE WORKS
most people who put on facepaint when they're going to a fancy dress party.
my duvet and my seething rage will
nice, thick protective layer of prejudice. ahh.
people who produce "things" that adhere to modernist conventions
also, see above: "elitist cunts who can't take a joke"
don't make me go all derrida on your ass here, it won't be pleasant for either of us. just, it's better than any of the alternatives.
...but I have just completed a 4000 essay on Postmodernism, so atm I'm inclined to say it's shite. Postmodern fatigue etc.
i still bum it
I still don't get it :(
ie., the campbell soup tin is still just a campbell soup tin, but in the given context it can represent something else.
just think of postmodernisms almost obsessive focus on physical bodies, and often decaying ones at that. it's taking one thing out of the greater story (grand narratives, etc) and looking at that in more detail. re-writing, re-imagining, etc. and there's a lot of really interesting, and NEW, stuff that can be said just from looking between the lines of what came before.
i'm not even sure if i know what it is.
if modernism is context without object (see: red square/peasant woman) then postmodernism is object without context (see: andy warhol with the campbell soup etc, and obvs tarantino et al)
and modernism is all self-righteous and stuck up. but by all means, even they did some fun stuff
something that is aware it is art.
but if you're looking for any easy way to stop your tongue from tripping over itself...it's all you need.
it's not a pipe, after all.
and i'm not sure it's very helpful to make sure everything fits into a certain catergory...there was/is always overspill between modernism and post-modernism...
but self-reflexise is a nice little phrase for someone wanting to sum up post-modernism...
like i said...it doesn't cover it all...it's too complex a topic...but for someone who says
'Postmodernism is so fucking hard to explain to people...i'm not even sure if i know what it is.'
...it helps i think.
It's not the one I was taught
'postmodernism refers to a cultural, intellectual, or artistic state lacking a clear central hierarchy or organizing principle and embodying extreme complexity, contradiction, ambiguity, diversity, interconnectedness or interreferentiality, in a way that is often indistinguishable from a parody of itself.'
but like i said...it's too complex to have one meaning.
So ''extreme complexity, contradiction, ambiguity, diversity, interconnectedness'' were covered, but interreferentiality was only mentioned in relation to Postmodern arts regurgitation/satirisation of the past.
It's too convoluted. It means nothing, it means everything.
P.s. Marius Kwint's best friend is one of the leading Postmodernist theorists in this country. Stupid to get all uppity and call him a monkey....he's easily more capable to lend his voice to the subject than a couple of no-marks like us.
Why? Why seek an umbrella phrase? You moan about the use of ''human condition'' but then you utilize a term that barely scratches the freckles off the nose of this vast, labyrinthine subject.
i'm responding to elyka.....
bumbler....you gonna show me his cv too? and you're the one who got shirty with your...'huff...i don't know where you're getting that defintion'
whiterussian....i think you should stop talking about it now because you're really not saying anything of note, you're just wandering around a topic with no destination in sight. it's a pointless discussion unless you have an actual point to make about this 'labyrinthine subject'.
'well, "too complex to have one meaning" the meaning kind of is that it doesn't have a meaning, though.'
time for bed kid.
yeah, you're replying to elyka and i didn't think that answer was quite good enough so i'm elaborating on it. and if you don't understand what i'm saying then just admit that rather then telling me to go to bed. yeah?
It wasn't a personal attack on you...I was just going against what you said. It's debating, innit. I dont know why you've spat your dummy.
It wasn't my intention. I was just engaging in the sort of half-baked discussions we constantly throw to the board.
i think my point was....i was happy to leave it at...'big topic innit eh guys?'....but you kept writing conditions to the definition that i had already said was a pandora's box and i felt i had to respond but i really couldn't be bothered because...'big topic innit guys'...and so instead of taking time to write something sensible in response i just fancied calling you annoying cunts.
I'll just throw my thoughts out. Modernists are stubborn as fuck. Whereas postmodernists are open to change, just because something has never happened doesn't mean it won't happen. It's also the belief that every situation is individualistic, and there are so many external factors that it is extremely difficult to make predictions based on a single situation. Lastly, the world is always changing, so it's basically impossible to understand everything.
I also believe that the definition of postmodernism changes as we progress, and is constituent of the time period.
what you say about always changing and stuff is very true, it's not one fixed state that can be achieved but rather it is the constant strive towards something, this is what raymond williams would have told you anyway. postmodernists are also big into the whole subjectivity thing, based mostly on lyotard's big thing about man being an animal suspended in webs of culture. look it up, it makes a lot of sense.
the meaning kind of is that it doesn't have a meaning, though.
but you can't really just say that in order to explain to someone what postmodernism is when, as you said yourself, there is bound to always be overspill.
just cause it doesn't go by the same rules as realism etc doesn't mean that it doesn't have rules, especially if you compare it to what's come after. it's very rigid and ELITIST and BORING
i mean, it's interesting as a kind of thought experiment and i bet if i was around at the time i would've bummed it. but that was then and this is now, etc.
it's all about being opinionated, whereas PM on the other hand is very much not.
We all seem to suck that teet into comatose rigidness
only the best ones. like you and me, bumbler.
people more attractive than me (most people)
3) The music forum
4) Slow walkers
5) Geriatrics that are kindly (why do some of them fall into complete stereotypical benevolence the moment their pubes turn into smoke? I'll punch them right in the Worthers)
6) People who abuse animals
7) People who cite ''arrogance and ignorance'' as the worst human attributes (have some imagination)
8) White ''rasta's''
9) People who dont watch TV out of principle (see also: white ''rasta's)
10) 20+ year old females who fetishise their Father's fairy stories (grown women who bang on about sweets and fairies)
11) Any anime fanatics
12) People who use ''Film voice'' for comedic effect (think Hollywood budget adverts for bombastic action features)
14) London swaggerers
15) Anyone who's enjoyed an Anne Summers party
Mainly the ones who charge around Portsmouth's Guildhall Walk.
17) Working class heroes who have a Tesco's Clubcard
18) Gays who are under 30 years old
19) Almost every footballer
20) The self proclaimed ''life and soul of the party''
22) Young Beatles fanatics
23) People who buy all their clothes from charit shops just because Jarvis set the standard
and I would be proud to burn a cross with you, good sir.
Let's make it happen
3) People with children.
4) Skinny-jean wearers.
5) Boys who have very long fringes (oh, what I'd give to send those fuckers out on the front lines of some horrible war with nothing but their skinny-fit jeans and a blunt shovel).
These are all genuine prejudices. I make it a point not to talk to any of the people I have thus far listed in this thread. Some are obvious; if you see an adult male bearing floppy fringe and wearing tight jeans, chances are he will be a massive cunt.
Ain't no thang, just augment my prejudice to exclude yourself.
That's you lot.
people who smile far too much
just people, really.
you must be a classy girl then.
well you helped with the cardiff decision, so i cant say i hold it (your strongbow prejudice) against you.
i'm just trying to figure out how i might fund it though...and that's a bit of a sticking point. Worst case scenario sees me getting a crap job for a year then applying, so it ain't all bad
facebook makes me hate almost all the people i once considered friends
"Wah-wah, we don't like to fight, we just want to ski and eat chocolate."
and who then impede my leisurely stroll through town.
especially Scottish ones
"Totally tore it up last nite, bants was off the scale. Jonesey u fukin legend, defo the archbishop of banterbury!"
But, yes...I do hate these statuses.
which is to say, no one
