    Confessions of an aging speedster (and other stories)

    Right, I'm approaching that stage in life where middle age is catching up with me. In line with those annoying life insurance adverts where the protagenist attempts to give you a carriage clock for signing your house away, I know death will be catching up on me soon. Therefore, I am going through a stage of catharsis where I will confess my sins. Mainly sins where I am going against the popular Zeitgeist. I'm going to admit things that most people are not going to agree with. Feel free to chastise me or if you too feel you need some catharsis, please join in.

    • The Beatles were over rated
    • Kevin Pietersen is not the messiah
    • South Park is just a load of conservative middle aged men swearing at each other
    • Why the hell would anyone use the word 'gnarley'. Isn't this as passe as the word Radical?
    • Cut your ****ing fringes you emo ****s!
    • Bono - if you're so concerned about 3rd world debt, spend some of your own ****ING money
    • I couldn't care less if New Zealand win the bloody yachting
    • I HATE cats
    • The Proclaimers are SOOOOO 1988
    • Retro just means old and ****, doesn't it?


    This isn't a bunch of moans. I may in fact post some things that I like which are incredibly outdated. Just slate me (if I help others by doing so, that's all well and good ) or post your unpopular confessions.

    Am I (and perhaps foolhardy and/or brave) the only person to admit the 500 miles song (or whatever it is called) is the only one I know of the Proclaimers?
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Stepping out of line, not using the grinded-gears thread. Step back, Heath.

    I'm sure they had other good songs (Gelman to elaborate possibly) but 500 miles is easily the most well known one. But yeah they probably could go down as a one hit wonder.

    I'm also of the opinion that South Park sucks.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    What's so funny about it? The animation is terrible (on purpose, but still annoys me) and the jokes are all poor toilet humour. Watched one last week where Stan and Butter's parents hire actors to play the kids from the future to steer them clear of drugs, and lo and behold, Cartman smears **** on their walls. How funny.

    In other news, cats are the best animal ever.

    They also had the song Letter from America which is even more annoying.

    Other confessions. Things that are out of date but I like:

    • Shed Seven (possibly, but not excluding the Killers)
    • David Attenborough documentaries
    • Yes Minister!
    • Bruno Lawrence
    • Australia
    • Improvisational Comedy
    • Quantum Leap


    Come on people! Indulge in some blood letting! Let your confessions come forth!
