    1. mr. bean blows on a cosmological scale. still to this day i cannot believe that the simp that bumbles around in that ninth-rate mongoloid drivel is the same conniving, hilariously evil fiend behind blackadder. has anybody ever postulated a decent theory explaining how that happened?

      1. Well, to be honest, I think there’s about 5 minutes worth of Mr. Bean that’s actually funny.
        I read an interview once with Rowan Atkinson where he said that he didn’t understand why people liked it so much.
        My theory is he first did it for those 5 minutes and then (in the words of Eddie Murphy, explaining why he did Best Defence), they drove a skiploader full of money up to his door…

  7. see, but i have no friends. (and you’ll soon see why!)
    still, here’s a few things that chafe. some of them may strike people as sacrilegious. i do apologize.
    seinfeld
    john kerry
    the doors
    south park (mostly)
    any vintage pre-1960 automobile that’s been chopped, mangled and converted into some kind of nightmarish belching, farting speedster with flames painted on the side and big chrome widgets protruding from every conceivable angle and blaring zz top
    the whole “trading spaces” phenomenon
    reality television of any kind
    any combination of metal and rap
    books that have sequels or tie-in products
    religious institutions and their dangerously slavish adherents
    any movie involving organized crime, drug dealers or vietnam
    and everything on ‘s list. although i kind of like coldplay. a little.

    1. i should make it clear i was substituting family for friends in a few spots on that list. most of my friends are not quite that, um, earthy. it’s called cheating. it’s catching on like mad!
      and i also would like to take this opportunity to also annex ‘s list except i am one of her friends that inexplicably likes whiny chick music, at least at certain times and in manageable doses.

    So Dave Egger’s, porn and my admittedly horrifying affinity admiration/ desire to consume programing make you my friend for liking it when you don’t, or did I read that wrong? Just starting to get the hang of this thing, may bay???? Most probably not really, yet. Love, peace, and yarn fuck dolls w/sleeves for hygienic sharing. Jesus rules, dude brahh.
