Worst everything

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Never mind what we like, what we enjoy, what makes you mad, sends you to sleep, whatever..out of these...

Film- any mindless, corny american al action blockbuster. I'll think of some later. The Seige and a japanese film called Audition spring to mind. Apparently in Switzerland audition came out and a man fainted in the cinema and went to hospital cos it's so gross. *Don't* see it!

Kids Programms- Chucklevision, I can't belive it's still going from when I was little and I hated it then!

Advert- any sofa shop like Courts, any loan place or compensation firms, and the calvin klein eternity one-blurgh, puke

Song- Chumbawumba-tubthumping, Beautiful South- Rotterdam, Do you really like it-Pied Piper

Other things to hate- S4C, sports on TV, radio presenters that love the sound of their own voice, BT internet, Cardiff uni library which has fined me £10 even though I can't return the books as I am 100 miles away, internet pop ups, junk mail, people who spit in ths lift, etc etc etc...

Add any other categories you like. Have fun moaning, I do!

I feel much better now. Instant therapy.

    Film- Anything with pop stars like Whitney or Mariah in. Although indecent proposal has got to be the worst film I've ever seen

    Kids Programms- There are some terrible programmes on S4C (welsh programmes)

    Advert- The one with the little kid who is in his cot saying MAMA in a quiet voice cos he's too frightened to cry or shout. And there's a terrible one where two blokes are talking about terrible adverts (While forgetting they are in one)

    Song- Have to agree with you about tubthumping, if ever a song was written to make money that's one of them! plus that one that goes 'I get High' and any phil collins.

    Other things to hate- S4C,(it's good for repeats though!)
    Library fines - well they are there for a reason you know! (I say that cos I'm a librarian)
    I HATE all the students outside the library (humanities) at Cardiff Uni who step out onto the road without looking where they are going! Cyclists who ride on the pavement. Cyclists who go through red lights, Cyclists without lights on their bikes. Cars who go through Amber lights or speed up when they see them. Small kids who chase pigeons and try to stamp on them, Big issue sellers who shout abuse at you when you don't buy the mag, Litter, people kicking my bins doen the street or putting them on top of cars at night, people being sick outside my door, the man next door who sounds like he's shagging the dog, ....shall I go ...I love moaning I do..

    Theres lots of things I DO like though

    Ummm-have to confess that I ride my bike on the pavement-that's because the drivers in Cardiff are nuts and there are no cycle lanes and they try to kill you! I do get off and push in areas with lots of people though and I'm very careful.

    I don't think it hurts anyone and I hate the people that take up the entire pavement by walking with about 20 friends all next to each other! That's whether I am on my bike or not, that does my head in when you have to do a Mr.Bean manoveur (sp?) to get around them. Oh, and people who are walking in front of you (usually in town) and then just stop dead so you bump into them.

    Well - y'see... I think if you want respect from drivers and other road users you have to gain that respect and so i would never cycle on the pavement cos I did I would have no right to complain about the shit drivers out there.
    I do agree tho that they basically try to kill you.

    Isn't it weird - we probably pass eachother every week. I've always thought it was odd the way people can meet eachother but for all they know they've passed a thousand times before.
    Do you live in Cathays KT?
    I go from Crwys Rd to Llandaff everyday!!

    Film: the blair witch project, Harry Poofter, basically anything with hype

    Kids programmes: pokemon, the saturday show - i dont particularly like watching danni flirting with 11 year olds. and i hate kids presenters - they are so loud - kids are kids, they dont need to be patronised

    Adverts: sofa adverts, claims direct etc and i hate those nappy adverts where the mothers kiss the babys' butt cheeks gross! and tampax/sanny adverts are just plain annoying, and that britta water filter advert with that woman and her flipping 'its my lovely cup of tea' grrr

    Song - anything by geri halliwell - ive had enough of her 'ive been through so much hardship, please feel sorry for me and buy my song' - having said that ive met her and she has a heart of gold, but she has to lay off the sympathy routine, and anything by westlife or hearsay

    Others,
    Jordan - dont you say anything other than 'Come on!'
    Model behaviour - i was appauled by their strops and bitchiness, cos im friends with a few models and they are the nicest people u'd ever meet, this program gave them a bad name
    Gabi roslin and terry wogan - fresh out of the formaldehyde yet AGAIN
    any documentries about teens - not all of us drink till we puke/have unprotected sex etc

    Film - Well i don't watch a lot of film so i'll say those awfully tacky TV movies which seem to have exactly the same plot.

    Kids Programmes - Most of this modern lark (with the exception of Bernards Watch) Tweenies i can't stand!

    Advert - Claims Direct and the rest of those daytime TV ads. Top of my list would be Safestyle UK. It has that guy who used to be in Corination Street and just want to punch his lights out!

    Song - Anything by Steps, Westlife, Blue and other crappy pop acts. Also Garage, R n'B, and those shouty American rock bands can do as well.

    Others - Car alarms that go off in the middle of the night. Plus the guy who used to live opposite my house and drove the worls loadist transit van. Txt Spk, GRRRRR!


    and relax.

    Just what do you listen to then? You've ragged on pop, r&b, garage (good call on this so far) then rag on rock bands? Why
    Dan wwhhhyyy
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I KNOW WHY!!! hes tallking about those terrible bands like Whetus,Sum 41 and Alien Ant farm who are just SOOOOO bad.

    We should all be listening to BRMC (Black rebel motorcycle club) who have just released the most brilliant album and basically blow all those horrible American 'rock' bands out of the water. BRMC Rock! but they do it better.

    The sooner this shouty NU-Metal fad is over with the better. Bring back the Beastie boys - at least they wrote good songs.

    Nu-Metal,thankyou byny, thats the term i was after! Its all corperate bollocks.
    As for the Beastie Boy, i must remember to download Its Tricky at some point.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Heh heh i love the beastie boys, their name is one of my hotmail addys!

    You can't say all nu metal are bad tho, there are some great bands out there but I'm thinking about getting rid of my all killer etc Sum41 album.

    I got their first album half hour of power like, a year ago and got their second one as soon as it came out but now they seem to be the band for the lil kids walking about town!

    Nooooo that can't be good <IMG alt="image" SRC="eek.gif" border="0">
    I'm a big offspring freak so I look forward to new bands on their Nitro label AFI for example.

    If I had the choice, Nu metal would kill out garage once and for all. I'd happily trade for the far lesser of the two evils.
