I really don't get Final Fantasy in general. Like, any of them.

Please don't kill me, but I think that Monty Python is overrated and stupid. I just don't get it. I watched at least three of them with one of my friends (including the Holy Grail one) and all of them I found boring and lame. The ONE THING I found hilarious was Mr. Creosote (projectile vomit amuses me for whatever reason).

I mean, yeah, the one-liners can be pretty funny, but as an overall package I just don't like it.

On second thought, let's not go to Camelot. It is a silly place.
??? Monty Python?
Yep. I hated that movie :P
As did I. ;D

Get thee to the "Please Don't Kill Me" thread!! :o

Thanks for the advice, Delling. ;)

Wait... you like projectile vomit... but Monty Python bores you!? That I don't get.

Also, I think it's entirely possible to watch Monty Python for the one-liners. :yes:

Is it weird that I read that in Hassan's voice from the Hassan and Graham show?

If anything, you should read it in Graham's voice. :P

Ah, well, sometimes creepy-quiet is more frightening than words. :P

At least you're not going to kill me, since we're in the thread. :yes:

Please don't kill me.... but I'm not a fan of the Beatles or Michael Jackson's music. I've noticed some people act like you are deaf if you don't like their music. I realize they are a super influential within the music industry in their own ways but it's just not my cup of tea. I don't hate it by any means but it's not my first choice.

I didn't grow up with the Beatles (my parents aren't really big fans), so I didn't have an appreciation for them until recently. And when I say recently, I mean like, within the past two years, and this is only because my dear sister bought the Beatles Rock Band. Until then I really didn't care one way or another. Now I like them, but they don't Own The Music Industry in my world. They're classics, but they're not my lifetime favorites or anything.

Michael Jackson? Meh. I could take it or leave it. I did grow up with his music, but it didn't stamp my life like I know it has for others. There are a few of his songs that I like, there are more that I don't.

I think that with legends like that you're expected to adore them because seemingly everyone else does. It's not a mortal sin to not enjoy it, that's just your style. :yes:

I enjoy the Beatles and Michael Jackson -- I certainly appreciate and understand everything they contributed to music and their innovations. I would never argue that they weren't tremendously talented.

But I don't consider myself a fan by any means. I'll listen to their music, I'll enjoy it while I do.... but I don't own any. I'm not planning to buy any.

There's a big difference between recognizing talent and being a fan. If you don't recognize Michael Jackson or the Beatles as having had talent... then I question your hearing (or at least your knowledge of music history :P), but I don't think it's a requirement of life to *like* their music. Not everyone liked them at the height of their careers, why would everyone like them now?

I'm not the biggest fan of the Beatles' early music but I really like their later stuff.  Michael Jackson, though, I totally agree with.  I don't like his voice, I don't like his music.  A lot of it just sounds the same to me.  And of course, Michael Jackson as a person just bothered me.  And actually, no I don't believe he was a pedophile.  What bothered me was him being so out of touch with reality and having no desire whatsoever to show insight into the fact that he was living out a destructive life and wasting money on frivolous things to the point of going into debt.  Usually I can separate out the person from the music, but the fact that I didn't like MJs music to begin with makes it tough for me to do so.  Anyway, can't stand his music.  And I hate his music videos that insist on trying to have 30 minutes of plot around a four minute song and dance routine.  If I wanted to see a movie I'd...you know...go see a movie.

Also, please don't kill me, but I hate Dave Matthews Band.  And I'm unapologetic about it.  I remember being in high school and everyone was like, "Ooooh Dave Matthews Band this," and "Ooooh Dave Matthews Band that."  And one day I heard this crappy song on the radio with a sound that was whiter than Sarah Palin's Alaskan household and realized this was Dave Matthews Band.  And all I could think was, "This was what all that hype was about?  Everyone must be deaf but me."
