    First of all, thank you for politely correcting me like an adult, I do appreciate that.(That isn’t sarcasm.)

    But as far as saying that a love of Radiohead is objectively better than I like of ET Erotica simply because many people like it is nonsensical. (I’m sure others have pointed this out to you, but since it was directed at me I’ll give my opinion as well.) I’m sure you dislike the Backstreet Boys and yet, they have a much larger fanbase than Radiohead. Nazism was all the rage in Germany, but by almost every measure it was a terrible thing.

  6. I hate Radiohead fans, for the most part. (I am married to one.) They think they’ve some how found a way to make the subjective objective. I like a few Radiohead songs. MOST of them are “meh” to me. I don’t think that says about me, other than, I like a few Radiohead songs, and I think most of them are meh.

    I know a woman who I consider creative, thoughtful, brilliant and intelligent, yet she LOOOOOOOOOOOVES the Twilight series. All it says about her is she loves the Twilight series. As hard as that is for me to stomach personally.

  7. SeeBea is Frodo.

  8. @Penny Lane, hypocritical much?

  9. Penny Lane, thank you for actually responding thoughtfully. I appreciate that. I think you misunderstood my point, though. Radiohead was just the example I was using. I was simply trying to say that there is good art, and there is bad art. There are things that can fall under each depending on preference (this is the vast majority of art), but there is some art that is just plain bad because it is lazy. Nickelback was the example I used for that.

    And, my other point was that there is a correlation between people like and what kind of person they are. It’s not an exact correlation, because there are exceptions (such as your friend who likes Twilight), but exceptions are just that: exceptions to the rule. They don’t CHANGE the rule; they’re just exceptions. Know what I mean? Because a few happily married women like to read romance novels does not negate the fact that even more lonely, old women read romance novels.

  10. Exceptions to rules not only change the rules, they also make them crap rules.

    For example, if the rule was “All nice young boys who behave nicely will receive a treat after supper” but I was a nice young boy and I behaved nicely and didn’t get a treat, then that changes the rule to “All nice young boys who behave nicely will receive a treat after supper – except Walter.” That’s a crap rule.

  11. I WILL NOT STAND FOR YOUR RULES ANYMORE!!!!!

  12. Just kidding. I’m making myself giggle.

  13. I can’t be Frodo, I have a pool.

  14. This may be relevant to your interests:

  15. @eenerbl I used to like you and thought we were similar in our values, thought process, likes, dislikes. But heaving bossom novels??? Really?!?! Now I find you worthy of nothing but scorn. Your laughable selection of reading material just completely wipes out all the good, smart, positive things I thought of you!

    NOTE: Please watch out for the heavy drips of sarcasm that may get on you while reading the above.

    jk girlfriend, but honestly, heaving bossoms? lol

  16. @yaya: Really, what can I say. I like things to “heave”.

  17. cackles. I was a fan at one time when I was a bit younger. Now I am all about the murder mystery thriller etc. I get things heaving through other avenues now 😉

  18. In all reality, about 50% of what I read is “erotic” I actually enjoy books on history and science (I’m a huge history buff). I still think it’s quite humorous that my “little ol blog” pisses people off. Seriously? Get over it and move along.

  19. I am sort of glad whatsisbutt tripped over it because it led me to check it out. As far as erotica, I’m all in. I also am a fan of the historical novel.

  20. Did anyone else just go over to facebook to see how many of their FB friends they’d slept with?

    Just me, then?

  21. Walter, I beg to differ.

    “…but there is some art that is just plain bad because it is lazy. Nickelback was the example I used for that.”

    The definition for art is not “unlazy”. Art is beyond definition. I agree, I personally don’t find Nickelback to be “art”, but Nickelback would disagree, and so would their fans. Art is in the eye of the beholder.

    “They don’t CHANGE the rule; they’re just exceptions. Know what I mean? Because a few happily married women like to read romance novels does not negate the fact that even more lonely, old women read romance novels.”

    And this is why I think people shouldn’t go by “rules” when it comes to subjective things. To judge an entire personality based on something as trivial as their like in a certain genre of music or literature is lazy. VERY lazy. It’s pigeon holing. Take each person as you find them and accept them for what they are. There are as many pigeon holes as there are humans.

  22. Sorry, that wasn’t for Walter. That was for ka_rosko…it’s Monday. Leave me alone!

    *of
    1st post and already exhibiting twat-like tendencies…not good…

  25. I was going to post a message saying that Nickelback was not the worst band on the planet, and go on to some deeper thing.

    Then I forgot. Shit.
