I wish when people "Reply" to a post that they wouldn't use the Quote button if it's obvious what they're replying to. The redundancy of the double text (and especially pictures) clutters up the thread. You especially don't need to do this if the post you're relying to is the latest one in the thread.

Also I hate the use of vague titles for new threads. One should be able to understand the intent or subject of a thread without having to drill into it.

Example, the recent "OK, this is a stretch..." in the General Forum.

I agree with both points, Mr. O. Unfortunately the quick and easy option will always predominate. The only thing people who give the rat's ass can do is hold to their standards and ideals. It's probably pointless, but since TV sucks we may was well spend our wasted time tryin to make TC suck less.

(The vague topics may not be the result of lack of effort as much as inability to communicate. A lot of people can't express even the simplest of ideas in anything but the most vague way.)

I'm tired of tedious foodies, anti-establishment posers and under-thirty know-nothings. That's why I LOVE the IFC show "Portlandia!"

Absolutely nothing, which is why people should stop talking about it and just eat it. If you haven't seen it yet, this YouTube link will give you a taste of what you're missing...

"People should stop talking about it and just eat it."


That reminds me...

I'm tired of stories about my food.

If it's goat cheese just give me a general flavor profile. I don't need to hear about the variety of goat and how in ancient Greece they were regarded as Zeus's favorite and all the temples had them frolicking about. I don't care how the breed almost went extinct except for the "visionary" efforts of a trust fund "farmer" and his amazing organic farm collective. And I really don't care that these "miracle goats" are only given distilled rainwater to drink and "harmoniously grown" grains to eat especially if the cheese your making tastes the way my feet smell if I wear waterproof shoes in the summertime.

Which reminds me...

I'm tired of precious craft cocktails.


Just make me a decent Martini, damn it.

I don't need organic triple distilled gin infused with juniper berries from the east slopes of the Washington Cascades.

I don't need vermouth featuring heirloom Verdeca.

I don't need it shaken up with hand chipped "rosemary essenced" artesian spring water "slow ice."

And I don't need the Fleur de sel brined white oak barrel aged olive hand stuffed with a rose petal and stuck on a toothpick made from a Joshua Tree spine.

Just make me a decent Martini, damn it.

I'm tired of jumbo ice cubes...



To me they're a warning sign of an overpriced "craft" cocktail.

Just a few sips and your drink is finished and your wallet is $15 lighter.

Also I hate when a cocktail tastes more of flowers than it does of booze.

And I'm tired of people complaining about "craft cocktails" when in 98% of this country outside of hip, urban areas you can't even get a decent cocktail. Spend some time in "flyover country" where you basically take your life in your hands when you order a Manhattan or god forbid, a tiki drink!

"And I'm tired of people complaining about "craft cocktails"..."



I haven't heard all that many people complaining about craft cocktails. We must run in different circles.

Of course I myself am not one of those "complaining about "craft cocktails"..." The careful reader will have noted that I didn't say I was tired of craft cocktails or well crafted cocktails. I'm tired of precious craft cocktails, when it all gets so darling it sounds like a high end Hollywood caterer's pitch for a wedding reception. That sort of thing.

That's awesome. I imagine the people drinking those closely resemble those hipsters in that recent photo posted here.

edit: yeah, I found it. These bastards.

I should like to see them soundly beaten. And I would like to take an active role in said beating.





They look like the 4 other guys that tried out for the role of "Hyde" on "that 70's show" but didn't get the part.



The guy on the left is sporting the Joseph Smith early mormon pioneer look.
The next guy looks like a bear "cub".
The next one actually almost got the part of "Hyde", but lost out because he doesn't believe in phones.
And the one on the far right? He should be hung just for wearing that sweater with those boots.

That reminds me, Tight clothes on chunky people, If you want to be fat
you have the right to be fat, but it should be against the law to be fat & wear skinny people clothes
it is just beyond good taste & hurts my eyes!

So embrace your fattiness, But dress appropriately.

I'm tired of the way fight scenes are filmed now. All a jumble of action too close to see what's really happening. What ever happened to CHOREOGRAPHY!? I guess this is a lot cheaper ~ you can take 2 random people, dress them in the actors' clothes, and in about 10 minutes have the bulk of the fight scene filmed. Then just intersperse some shots of the real actors' grunting faces and you're done. Save the cash for more important things like excessive salaries for the superstars and food service!
