You know what’s really been annoying me lately? All those dumb fads going around.
Exhibit A- Those Uggs that almost every girl these days seems to be wearing. They’re tacky, ugly, and oversized. I have no clue what everybody sees in those things. Sadly, this fad is still going strong after about two years.
Exhibit B- The T-Mobile Sidekick. I despise Sidekicks, for their lackluster performance, lack of programs, lack of features, and general uselessness. Unfortunately, this is still ongoing, with new models being released every few months. It’s annoying how people get torn away from real life in their little texting worlds. I just might write another post about Sidekick, as my hate for them needs way more room to vent out.
Exhibit C- The Blackberry fad. This one is quite annoying as well. About one year ago, Blackberries were solely for businessmen. Now it’s starting to edge out the Sidekick in market share amongst teens. Although it has way more features, I feel it is a waste of technology, as most teens will only use the Blackberries for their pointless texting and not much else. Seriously, all that those teens see in the Blackberry is texting, texting, texting, and myspace/facebook.
Exhibit D- Social whores. While I use both MySpace and Facebook, my life does not revolve around either of them. However there are people who make a reference to a picture/comment on a social site in everyday conversation, which gets really annoying.
Exhibit E- Scene kids. I hate these above all the other fads. They’re the fakest people out there. They listen to (sic) “br00t4l” music, like deathcore, only because it’s “in.” They claim their music is best, even if it sounds raucous and unskilled (see Waking the Cadaver). They usually shop at Hot Topic, wear eyeliner, hair with highlights, and t-shirts with undecipherable band logos. This leads me to my next subtopic- Emos. They moan and whine about how their lives suck and about their supposedly terrible parents. However, 90% of these are posers, with comfortable households and easy lives. Most of them listen to poser emo, which sounds nothing like real emo. Real emo music doesn’t have whining or crying, it has screaming and energy. Emo actually stands for “emotional hardcore,” not “emo-bitch-and-whine.” Even worse, because of those naïve fools, most of the general population classifies all metalheads into the “emo” category by default. Same goes for most of those poser goths out there.
Exhibit F- Twilight fangirls/boys. They worship their books, and treat it like a religion, “converting” people to “Twilighters.” They put endless quotes from the books for their statuses on Facebook (you all know who you are). I mean, it’s nice that some people are going back to reading actual books, but they should keep their fanaticism to themselves.
There is no doubt that people will hate me for writing this list, but I simply had to vent it out.
Edit: Also, I was not intoxicated while writing this. These are my real views.
