Pet Peeves........

Postby quicksilver » Mon Mar 02, 2015 7:39 pm

We all have them.

1. Drivers who pull out right in front me; step on the gas so I don't hit them, and immediately put their blinker on to turn. what? you couldn't wait 3 more seconds for me to pass?
2. The 15 item or less isle at the grocery store is there for a reason jackass.
3. Is it absolutely neccessary that you squeel your tires, every single time?
4. I know that you give money to charity, which is great, but its not so great that you remind me of it. Try this on for size: Charity is supposed to gladden the heart of the giver. If you donate in order to be recognized- you're doing it for the wrong reason.
5. This happened Saturday night at a bowling tournament. I brought a few of my Floyd CD's and as soon as I put on Darkside, within 10 seconds someone yells out " hey lets go roll a few fat ones outside". I hate how people think you have to be stoned to enjoy their music.

I think I could potentially crash this forum if I listed off everything that got under my skin, but that's probably because I'm generally pretty irritable these days. :lol:

Ooh, I have a few.

1. People that get in line at a restaurant or even Starbucks, then get to the counter and don't know what they want. How about hanging back and figuring out what you want to order, THEN getting in line?

2. Women that don't sit down on the toilet seat to pee, thus spraying urine all over the seat, the floor, and who knows where else. Your telephone has more germs on it than a public toilet. Put your ass down and piss, lady. A corollary to this is women who don't dispose of their feminine hygiene products properly. The last time I used a public restroom, and it was because it was an emergency, otherwise I'd have waited until I got home, there was a bloody tampon on the floor. Just sitting there. F*cking hell.

3. Door-to-door solicitors, particularly religious salespeople, that can't take a hint. I've had the same two people come to the door about five or six times in the last year or so, asking if we'd like to join their church. I get it, you believe you're supposed to go forth and spread the word, but if I say I'm not interested, that doesn't mean come back another time and I'll change my mind. I'm never rude to these people, only because they're well-meaning if not a bit dim, but come on.

4. Anyone over the age of 13 who speaks English as a first language and cannot use proper spelling, punctuation, and grammar in a sentence, whether online or in print. I have to help my sister grade her classes' homework sometimes, and it's atrocious. Some of these kids print like they're serial killers writing a ransom note. On top of that, their grasp of the English language is so tenuous, it might as well be non-existent. I blame their parents for not stressing better language skills, I blame the kids themselves for being lazy, and I blame their past teachers for not cracking the whip on them when they were first learning this to begin with.

5. People who cough and/or sneeze in public and don't cover their mouths. That's how many diseases are spread, particularly the common cold and the flu, and I don't want either. If you're sick, stay home. You don't need to go shopping for tube socks when there's snot running down your face. Also, if you're in a restaurant, please chew with your mouth closed. I don't want to see or hear you chomping, smacking, or slurping your meal. Don't talk with food in your mouth, either. Whatever you want to say can wait until you've chewed and swallowed. I sometimes wonder if these people were raised in the wild by a pack of wolves. They have no social graces whatsoever. They burp and fart at the table, they wipe their mouths with the backs of their hands, they let their fork bang and clink against their teeth....yeesh.

6. Last, but certainly not least, people who use their cell phones will driving. I don't give a flying fudge bar if you're on the phone with the Dalai Lama — PULL OVER. I'm tired of being stuck behind these idiots because they can't be bothered to hang up or quit texting their BFF. It's against the law here in North Carolina, but you'd never know it. It's one of those laws that should be enforced but often isn't, because in order to do it properly, we'd need to quintuple our police force. I'm sure this last one will probably hit a few people that post here, but eh. Nothing you have to say is so important it can't wait until you get home or until you can find a parking lot somewhere to pull into. Even if you have to dial 911, you should still pull over.

1. Not being able to 'Like' Quicksilver's second post.

2. My nature. Hey, I didn't want to be a cynic, but society beat me into it. I, of course, had nothing to do with it.

3. Really long and drawn-out passive-aggressive arguments. Especially on TV. You know, it's not like we hate it in real life or anything. Go on, I haven't seen enough of it today. Just draw it out. While you're at it, take a joke that was mildly funny an make it go on for three minutes. No, I only paid for the Netflix account, it's not like I wanted to watch an actual show with a plot and character development or anything.

4. The fact that I know I do everything that I hate in other people, but having no idea how to stop.

3. Making mistakes in forum posts.

4. Being able to recite countless hours of classic rock historical facts, but still getting east and west confused every damn time.

3. When I tell people I like classic rock and their reaction is a bewildered "You mean, like the 80s?" I'm wearing a Rolling Stones shirt. Use your brain.

4. Still not being able to 'Like' Quicksilver's second post.

3. That liking something now requires clicking a button, not having an opinion. Hence why I had to put 'Like' between apostrophes.

4. Using "u" in place of "you". I don't have nearly as much of a problem with other abbreviations. Dnt they jst make u mad?????

3. Being incapable of conveying my thoughts in a coherent manner. Now I know how Pete Townshend felt.

4. Comparing my inability to articulate myself to the Lifehouse sessions.

5. AutoCorrect. It's a piece of spinach.

6. Disbling AutoCorrect and makinf tons of spellibg wrrors becuase this keypad suks.

7. Fun Fact: Everything in that above comment was a genuine mistake. I planned on deliberately misspelling a few words but that's what actually came up.

8. Fun Facts.

9. That this has turned into the joke I mentioned in the first number 3.

10. People who insist that certain music must be enjoyed on drugs. Look, if certain music sucks so bad that you have to physically change your brain around to like it... it means the music sucks.

11. That this apartment complex is supposed to be quiet starting at 11 PM but the exact opposite seems to be true. I don't care if you went to Home Depot and got a jackhammer, it's 4 AM and I just fell asleep. Please die.

12. Knowing that I don't really wish death upon people but never changing my mannerisms.

13. Making up BS for lists.

14. Being really tall.

15. The fact that it's still freezing here, but my only coat makes me sweat like I'm in a desert so I need to have like ten clean shirts per day or freeze to death. Also that the freezing to death option seems to be the better alternative (I'm not going to take it, don't worry. But I do need a lot more money for laundry.)

3. This push for "minimalist design" nowadays. YouTube recently did away with the little outline of the search bar unless you're hovering over it. Well that little script has made the site about thirteen times slower than it already was. Why does the basic "minimalist design" concept have to use up so much memory? Don't model each pixel individually - it's already blank!!

4. That the smiley that looks like Elvis Costello is labelled über geek.

5. That John Entwistle recorded the bass for "The Real Me" in one take on his first try and my fingers are blistering over just trying to play a basic bassline.

6. That even though I refuse to subscribe to any stereotypes, almost every single person in this apartment complex adheres strictly to them and thus makes me feel prejudicial. [EDIT: I accidentally put prejudiced. That's the opposite of what I meant to put!]

7. That commercials at their quietest are louder than shows at their loudest.

8. Any form of paid advertisement or sponsorship.

9. That even though I started this list with good intentions, I'm just doing it to make people laugh now, and I know it, and they know it, but I probably won't stop.

10. Jokes about airline food.

11. Airline food.

12. Not being able to remember names OR faces.

13. That I avoid all social problems by not having friends. Hey, it works.

14. That my imaginary friend has schizophrenia and is afraid of losing their grip on reality.

15. Knowing how pathetic I am.

16. That I still can't 'Like' Quicksilver's second post.

17. Extreme optimism. I try to look on the bright side, even if only for a laugh, but it's six AM, I had a dream that I got brutally murdered in a train station, and I need to leave early because someone screwed up my work schedule. Don't make me happy.

18. The myth that if you die in a dream you die in real life. Fun Fact: If you die in the dream, you just end up somewhere else. Sometimes you can even see the you that died. I've died three times in the same dream.

19. The myth that you can't hear the tone at the end of "A Day In The Life". Yes, I can, and it gives me a headache.

20. That Bruce Springsteen never released "Roulette" or "Loose Ends" on proper studio albums. Awesome songs, but it bothers me that I need to break out that giant box just to hear them.

21. That "Roulette" isn't on 18 Tracks. Come on, it's the best song in the box set by a long shot. You couldn't put it on the condensed version? Aargh...

22. That "Hey You" is on every Floyd best-of. I'm not going to let my hatred of it blind me from the fact that other people enjoy it, but did it have some sort of cultural impact, moreso than the rest of the album? Was it a single or something? Surely people don't want to hear sixteen bars of maggots buzzing, or am I just crazy?

23. That I'm known around here as "the guy who hates 'Hey You'" instead of "the guy who loves The Final Cut and A Saucerful of Secrets more than most people."

24. That even though I avoid drugs and alcohol because I know I have an addictive personality, I can't do the same with potato chips and soda. Not because they're unhealthy, but because they're expensive and I go through like five bags of chips a week.

25. Reissue CDs that tamper with the original tracks more than just remastering, unediting, or correcting speed. Oh, a song that was planned to be on the album but wouldn't fit? Please put it at the end with the other bonus tracks. I came for the original album, give me the extras after.

26. That every single music release nowadays has a deluxe edition released, for two dollars more, with one to three bonus tracks, and that both are always on iTunes. Just make the bonus tracks the regular album. It's not like people are going to say, "$14.99? Oh, no, I can't afford that! I'll just settle for the $13.99 one without the alternate vocal take."

27. That the Beatles wrote "The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill" and that they put it on an album.

28. That I have to make plans according to how lazy I think I'll be feeling at that time. I really want to go to the presentation on Friday... but I'll probably be tired. And it might not be all that great.

29. People who think Dark Side of the Moon was Mr. Pink Floyd's only song.

30. How acquainted I've become with the smell of burning Fruity Pebbles, and the fact that it seems normal to me to smell burning Fruity Pebbles on a daily basis, and that there's no way to say that to make it sound non-creepy.

31. Social norms. Look at me, I'm jumping on your table making faces. Booga booga boo. Aaaand here come the cops! I wanna express myself dammit.

32. The fact that #31 has actually happened to me.

33. That the vending machine downstairs has conned me out of $4.50 and that I know I will never do anything about it.

34. Being only mildly skilled at a wide variety of instruments but having no otherwise unobtainable talent. Guess calling myself "Artisan" was a prophecy. Wish I'd called myself "Hendrix 2.0", maybe that would have been better.

35. That I accidentally left my soda on the desk and I don't want to get out of bed to get it but I'm really thirsty.

36. That there are a million other things I could be doing right now and that this joke has gone on for far too long.

37. That the 1996 reissue of Quadrophenia doesn't have the luxurious liner notes that the rest of the series does. Which is a shame because I really like the packaging.

38. Misplacing things and realizing that I'm holding them fifteen minutes later.

39. That I know Quicksilver read this entire list, and that I think he might be a little bit disappointed that it's not as over-the-top as he expected but that up until this one it was still mildly entertaining.

40. That this would make for a really lousy standup routine but honestly it's all I have.

1. That I will never top Artisan's glorious list and its glorious numbering.

2. This blasted weather. I know it's not usually this crazy, I remember the weather from year to year. These past years have been something strange.

3. The fact that Scott Cawthon decided to release Five Nights at Freddy's 3 OUT OF THE GODDAMN BLUE on a night where I had to go to bed early for work. Now everyone has played it but me, and I still have a few hours to go before I have a chance.

4. Yes, I do have an unhealthy obsession with the Five Nights at Freddy's series. I still sometimes have nightmares of being in the dark and hearing that music box play before I wake up.

5. People who are 'big fans' of a band and know only a few of their songs. Yes, I've heard Thick as a Brick and I like some of the first few segments. That must make me the ultimate Jethro Tull fan, right?

6. Along those lines, I feel like a person should be familiar with a decent variety of a band's work before bragging about being a fan (although I guess that's a personal bias and not a pet peeve)

7. People who drive in the snow. They either drive as if the ground has zero traction whatsoever, or they drive as if there's no snow whatsoever. How about that happy medium where we just drive carefully and don't get passed by kids walking on the sidewalk?

8. Rockism. Although most of the music I listen to is considered 'rock', I don't believe it's the only music worth listening to. Surely people can see that there is plenty of good music in every genre, it just takes some dedication to crack those genres that you might not normally find yourself listening to.

9. The Anti-Collins Genesis people. Phil didn't even (hardly) write material for the band, and are they trying to convince me that "Domino", "Driving the Last Spike", and "Duke's Travels" are disgusting sell-out pop music?

10. My university's toilet paper. This stuff is like half-ply, they should just install a bidet if they want us to suffer. At least it'll get the job done.

11. Being overweight. Every time I think I can start losing weight, McDonald's makes the triple cheeseburger or something like that, and that stuff is just too tasty and so cheap for my poor college budget. Vegetables are expensive.

12. People who text while walking on the sidewalk. If they try to cross the street while texting and I'm driving, I honk and swerve at them to scare the shit out of them in hopes that they'll pay attention for a change. I'm sure that makes me an asshole, but it's totally worth it.

This drives me up the wall. The thing is, I admit to only collecting small portions of certain discographies, but I at least make an attempt to have a knowledge of later material. For example, I'm currently not interested in collecting any post-Exile Rolling Stones stuff... but I know a bunch of their more recent songs, and I can list off the names of the albums. I'm not like "Dude 'Sympathy For The Devil' rocks! I'm the biggest Stones fan ever! WOOOO! 'Salt of the Earth'? What's that, a Beatles song?" (answer: it's a damn good quasi-gospel bluesy rocker and the biggest reason I bought Beggar's Banquet.)

Had a douchebag today, while I was about to cross the street, turn into the lane, allowing the back of his car to pivot around. his car was half-sideways and if I had walked a little faster (I was keeping time to Gimme Shelter) my feet would have been pancaked. I gave him the finger, he gave it back, and we went our separate ways. P.S. if for some reason that guy is reading this, get off the road, asshole.

The thing is, with this, I find that most of the time my favorite songs of other genres are performed by rock acts or have a rock variant on them. My favorite country song is "Wild Horses", which is definitely more country than rock. That's not really a good example as I actually really love classic country, though. My favorite rap song, if you want to classify it that way, is "Back in Black". Sure, it's got all the structure of a rap song, only it has guitar and it doesn't sample "Funky Drummer". So I suppose it can't be rap. My favorite blues song is "Soulshine" by the Allman Brothers. Definite blues rock vibe. Not a standard I-IV-V, but still definitely bluesy and rocky. My favorite classical piece is, uh, "Father's Shout"? Actually, no, it's "Ride of the Valkyries". But that was pretty rockin', right?

Rockism is this belief that rock music is the standard to judge other music by, while often dismissing all pop music as cute rubbish. That is the specific pet peeve. Rock music is really only 50 or 60 years old, and I feel like it sort of happened on accident sometimes. I may not be a big connoisseur of jazz, classical, or rap, but it seems silly to me to listen to it and think "that's great and all, but it didn't have a guitar solo I could wave my lighter at, so it wasn't THAT good".

Yes, judging music based on those two things is complete and utter rubbish. Guitar solos can go get fisted by a rabid armadillo unless they contribute a LOT to the song. Fletcher Memorial Home, Time, Comfortably Numb, Let It Be (album version), Nowhere Man... you know the ones I mean. Stuff like Division Bell and all... they were just there because they HAD to be. And as for wave your lighter... I'll put my lighter to your jacket if you think that's what rock music is about.

That said, I do think that out of all music genres, rock is the one that has the most elements of all others, besides *maybe* jazz if you count freeform and avant garde in there. Whereas metal has a million subgenres and one distinct sound, a sound that annoys me, rock has a mere thousand subgenres and millions of unique sounds. Country is country, blues is blues. Within those genres, there is not a lot of diversity. But there is country-rock, and there is blues-rock, and there is jazz-rock (I think), and there is rap-rock. There's hard rock, pop rock, psychedelic rock, real punk rock, what-everyone-considers-punk-rock-but-what's-really-just-regular-rock-with-three-chords-and-singers-with-too-much-makeup-whining-and-overacting-and-being-what-they-set-out-to-destroy-supposedly rock. Rock can have jams, ballads, experimentation, and opera. I can't really see a twelve-bar-blues Quadrophenia emerging at any point.

I think that rock is a genre to compare lots of music to, but only because it incorporates almost everything. There's standard straight-ahead rock, which can only be classified as rock, but there's also elements of everything else in it. Are there elements of many things in other genres? Sure. But I think rock is universal, easy to grasp (though difficult to master), and is a good benchmark for comparison.

As for pop being "cute rubbish", I agree completely. Not all pop is cute rubbish. Listen to Badfinger. That's pop music with a real bite (though I classify them as rock, whatever). The four chords of pop are actually really moving chords (you know the chords I mean - think Pachelbel's Canon) but they can be misused and that's where a lot of the dissonance sets in. As always my train of thought is still boarding at the station so I'm going to shut up before I confuse you any more.

Oh, also:

1. People who drive on the middle/left lane instead of the right lane while not overtaking somebody else. It's forbidden in Belgium, and overtaking via the right is forbidden as well. So, people who do this thing are pretty much blocking the road for others.

2. People who try to circumvent traffic jams by breaking laws.

3. People who claim to be good drivers.

3. That assholes are allowed to drive. Either blaring shit grind trance turdcore, peeling out violently, or flashing me the peace sign when I deliberately cut them off (what the hell is that about? I think you mean to have your hand turned around, that's the gesture I gave you). This town is filled with people who think out their ass and communicate through racist interpretive dance, and every time they roar past a stop sign I give 'em what for and/or shout at them in a bad Scottish accent.

4. Everything I just said, again.

- I used to live in an apartment complex with my girlfriend and another roommate. We would frequently be visited by Jehovahs and Mormons. My way of dealing with them was telling them that we were a lesbian covenant and that we worshiped Satan OR that "Joesph Smith was a hellbound whore-mongering reprobate". They had no words. :lol:

Took me a while to get started, but once I did I just couldn't stop.

Also I think its funny that for SunShade to quote my number 4, he would've had to highlight a lot before he pressed the delete key.
