tv shows featuring sarah beeny
people uploading cover versions of songs to youtube
now you go...
middle class people who go to posh cafes in normal areas and shit talk the locals
by normal i mean average, not extremely wealthy
THIS IS A REAL THING
middle class people go to working class areas and complain about the area not being gentrified enough for them yet
do very posh cafes hand out megaphones or sth
just overhearing middleclass bores saying that people from byker don't deserve to have such an exciting artsy area as fka ouseburn valley/shieldfield on their doorstep if they're not going to use it
of course poor people aren't gonna buy £3 coffee and £7 sandwiches get real
I'm so sorry, I completely forgot
was reading that nips thread and fidel talks about 'calling people out' on things as if Clyde 1 has organised a worldwide game of calling out where you get entered into a raffle for a car by saying "I call thee out on this issue!". It just means nothing most of the time and people talk as if its a noble and intelligent thing in any context to act as caller-outer.
I'm not against pointing out to people when they're saying harmful things but we don't need any more of it, mostly cos the surplus is just people like fidel.
did you take the "search deep inside your soul" part of that line just as seriously as the "calling out" part, you po-faced buffoon?
don't take that away from me
He's gone all earnest.
Peter and Sylar were brothers? Fuck off...
Kevin Bacon adverts
but there's a picture here of my grandad in a lion one and it's INCREDIBLE
been scanning my grandparents' photos for a few days on-and-off and all of the photos they have of my dad are of him in novelty hats.
can't believe it
back when it actually cost film to do it.
Unless you've always had one
You know what I mean
People who 'tell it like it is'
Champions League matches
Salvia Plath is especially annoying me. And also Sauna Youth, because I can't tell if it's supposed to be a pun on Sonic Youth or not.
at how good Dananan... and Joanna Gruesome are, because it makes it hard to be against this thing as much. :-/
yeah famous people bands
and ones that are like 'slaves' or 'savages'
I hate Real Estate and Rival Consoles for similar-ish reasons. Far too similar to Sunny Day Real Estate and Rival Schools.
Be it football, tv, politics, music, life, whatever.
It seems like there are an insane number of people doing the talking/anaylsing of stuff people do than there are of people doing the fucking stuff in the first place.
Surely we'd be better at doing the stuff if we had more people doing the stuff than people critiquing the people doing the stuff, if that makes sense?
cannot remember the last time i listened to a football show on the radio or listened to what any pundits have to say on match of the day etc. its just the same old pish regardless who's spouting it.
Social Media platforms
corporate ones still horrendous
many many times before it was a word. Perfectly ok thing to do but now it's been dickheadized and you feel like a tool doing it.
All other 11 days remain the same?
ps that kickstarter got funded, so you can start look forward to listening to the album
So no to getting rid of those. Just because Google doesn't have an RSS reader doesn't mean we don't need them.
about how they're thinking about starting a blog, as if anyone in the world actually wants to read their shit musings about back to the future/warhammer/boots meal deals
MPs with second jobs
Long-term investment in energy derived from fossil fuels
what so no more roads?
we don't need roads!
This is a good example of what I mean: http://goo.gl/Sm4gCe
All the future's transport needs can be met with mass transit, bicycles and vehicles that hover above the ground.

we don't need any more Londons. We've already got one, and it's ace.
