The only reason I have an opinion on K-pop is because it gets shoved into my face all the time. Same goes for any pop, honestly. My opinion on pop is not great, it's all a bit samey to me. What does really bug me though are K-pop fans who are well into adulthood and still obsess over girl/boybands as if they're teens. It's creepy lol.

 

Tbh I love hearing about music I don't know. If I didn't, I would have still been a metal normie or something. I think I'm aware of most styles by now, LOL. It's hard to find new, original and good stuff, but it's out there, somewhere. And I'm going to find it.

 

sadjysdjf the genre thing is something I can relate to. I was talking on discord and the subject became music, namely glitch(core). A bunch of dudes and I agreed that there's a lot of good glitchcore among the mountains of trash, so we decided to link our favourites. The most vocal dude who seemed so into music linked to trance tracks... TRANCE!!

Exactly what it works like for me, if I don't like a song/artist/genre/anything actually I just don't like it but if I have to hear it all the time - noooooo just leave me alone

And yes, it is creepy... at least to me. Boy/girl bands can be okay I guess, but that kind of obsession just scares me.

 

Agreed ^^

 

Ooh. Bad. Very bad.

 

@AntroTyree, oh my god yes. There are those really really creepy fans who seem to know everything and then get the name wrong when writing a love letter on whichever social media platform xD

Haha yeah I get it. There's music I don't care for but I can have it as background noise, and then there's just... stuff with the generic voices and cookie-cutter melodies (boy/girlbands sorry not sorry) and... sfkdjh. no thank you lmao. Underground gangster rap? I'll pick that over boyband stuff any day. It's better background noise hh.

 

Boyband obsessions have always been weird-- I mean, the Beatles were a thing and people who obsessed over them back in the day haven't changed much regarding that...

RANT ALERT! Read at your own risk.

I literally just got something just a few seconds ago with something that annoys me so.

 

Wait for it...

 

 

 

 

3..... 2...... 1

 

 

Nostalgia Critics!

 

 

Yup. Not only people defend too.hard on things that are not a thing anymore, but what's worse is that these people are stuck in the past and cannot let go of their childhood. Those things are dead. DEAD! Get over them, this is the 21st century for punchmelon's sake and it's almost the end of the 2010s.

Don't get me wrong: I like nostalgia, and it's okay to like the stuff you used to like as a child. What the problem is these people say things like, "Nothing is as good as it used to be", which I would have to disagree with that because I can find some really good content in the modern era. (specifically cartoons and music because I don't pay attention much to books, live-action, comics or what you non-introvert humans do in your social life. If you have a good modern book, comic, games, live-action stuff, or awesome new store at the mall, or simply have an opinion about the cartoons, feel free to reply to this comment)

As for reboots, I'm totally fine with reboots as long as it's done correctly. I'm okay with rebooting some old TV shows, but to me personally it does feel kind of unnecessary because most of the shows that have been rebooted had concluded. Reboots are hard to pull off and I understand how much contemplation it takes to make a completely new substance out of an old substance, but still maintaining the charm of the old substance that satisfies old fans. I like some of the reboots, and the others I don't actually hate regardless of public opinion, but rebooting old concluded shows sounds kinda like either raising a corpse from he grave and making it look spiffy, or replacing a dead person by a robot clone. I would take Hey Arnold for example, but I kinda see this as a continuation special more than a reboot, so I'm gonna go with the Powerpuff Girls (bad example yes, but it could be worse). Nobody really asked for a reboot because the original came out with a bang, and I'll give credit, the last season of the original PPG was kinda bad, but back on track: But because this show was rebooted two times before, it makes the 2016 reboot filter out whatever substance it had left and it feels dry.

Ben 10 would probably be a better example since they had a continuation + Plus reboots + Marketing reboot, which everyone knows that it too risky and it = A withered shell of your former self. It just gives this whole franchise the annual pass to jump the shark.

Enough of that, let's move on. I get why people love things that existed in the 80s - 90s, but me personally, the 90s sounds better than the 80s which depends on what type of media you're referring to. Again, I pay attention to cartoons an music. The music in the 80s sound quite classy and catchy. 90s music is about the same, but the 90s tend to have great cartoons. I wasn't around during the 90s, so I have absolutely no nostalgia for any of them unless it continued til the early to mid 2000s when I was very little, but I still like them and I like the modern stuff too. Sure not mainstream, but hey, it's a big world. There are soo many things that you never even heard about that you didn't know you needed in your life. Feel free to name something that you never knew existed before and nobody has heard of it, that suddenly filled an empty space in your life you didn't know was there. I like to hear/read unrerrated content.

In conclusion: I really don't like it when people critisize how their generation was better, especially the stuff that they like is not even that good, but they say it's good only because of childhood memories. Take advantage of what we have now, don't be such an old sack. Optimism!

 

 

TL;DR

All good things must come to an end, BUT that's when new good things will come our way.

Time to bump this boi up with some good minor annoyances.

 

  • People who don't know how to use their blinker. They either don't use it or use it AS they take a turn. How hard is to basically twitch your finger? I just.... how are not be able to just... do it right? It's so simple! 
     
  • When people refer to the Netherlands as 'Holland'. They're not the same thing.

Ahem my dad ahem. The Holland thing. He thinks it's so ridiculous of my sister and me to correct them xD

 

When I can't decide if I should actually correct my history teacher pronouncing Den Haag. Everyone does it like her, I know, but it sounds so German and that bothers me. I have corrected some classmates but all they say is "ewww stop it it sounds so ugly" or "I don't care".

I'm also one of the few people who don't say Laibach instead of Ljubljana. If I know the correct way to say something I want to be able to use it, please, not be told it's ugly or be told to say the other word. (Besides, I don't think Laibach sounds better than Ljubljana, rather worse)

Why doesn't she just use 'the Hague'? It's much more accessible to people who can't pronounce the Dutch G (if that's her problem anyway). The G is the main reason I don't mind people not being able to pronounce names like 'van Gogh' lol. As long as they don't claim that the English variants are the true and honest pronunciations.

 

I try to use the original pronunciation of things usually. Unless I'm not sure how to, then I'll just use the variant I do know. 

Haha, when I think of Laibach I think of the band, rather than the city, oops! Probably because the city's called Ljubljana in Dutch hgjhgjhgjdfg

That's not her problem at all, she probably doesn't know it's not the correct pronunciation, which means I should probably tell her the next time she says the word - but I haven't heard anyone saying Den Haag as it's supposed to be so I won't be taken seriously anyway, they'd probably not even believe me xD

I've never heard anyone saying van Gogh in any other way than the correct one. I guess the H after the G makes everyone suspicious so they check it xD nope, the Dutch G shouldn't be a problem for native German speakers.

 

Yeah, same here. As soon as I find out about the original pronunciation or spelling I try to use it. Yeah, well, I won't start to write Russian names in Cyrillic letters just because I know them more or less, at least not on tests unless we've learned them. Or maybe I will, you never know xD I am planning to write Fryderyk Chopin instead of the commonly used Frederik or Frédéric on my music test just because it's correct.

We learned both names but my mum keeps correcting me xD

 

Another annoying thing related to this: writing or pronouncing words obviously from another language completely strange. I can't get myself to like words like "antörnen" ("anturnen" - "turn on"), "Nugat" ("nougat") or "Kusine" (cousin). Please. It hurts my eyes. The way many people in Germany pronounce "Michelin" is also pretty bad. It's not that much of a problem here but we have a swing made of a tyre from Michelin and we used to have a German neighbor who always pronounced it - well - German. I'd probably not be so annoyed by it if they didn't expect English speakers to pronounce "Mercedes" or "Adidas" correctly.

Thumbtack, bring back that subject!

I've got a few more as well!

 

-When my cat is cold in the middle of the night so she pokes my face with her claws unsheathed to let her under the blankets.

 

-My mom saying I should loose some weight. I have the whole eternity to be a bunch of bones, let me eat my Nutella in peace, for Thor's sake!

 

-The Hidden World's ending scene. Sorry to say it, but I really didn't like it ^^'  *hides from the crowd*

 

-People trying to talk english when they clearly don't know anything about its grammar and or pronunciation. It brings up really awkward conversations where I mostly try not to correct who's talking to me.

 

-But those who don't even know how to conjugate verbs in their own mother language are even worse.

 

- M O S Q U I T O E S. 'Nough said.

 

-when you have a cool idea for a drawing but when you try to put it down on paper it turns out so horrible that you rather rip off the paper and eat it than showing it to anybody.

Traditionally, when somebody has a negative opinion over anything, I ask them why they feel that way over it. But because I haven't seen the movie yet, you can have your opinion remain bias.

 

For the people who use bad grammar, it's likely that those people have a Language/Speech Dyslexia which typically comes from Autism. I know from experience because I have said dyslexia. I stammer a lot when I speak, and it comes to restarting or rephrasing my sentences again because I can't find a proper closing; therefor, I constantly loose that train of thought when I express things, even if I have the entire sentence structure planned out.

Although, I do agree to some extent. Like the people who misuse words in their sentences like: "Give it to myself," when they should be saying "Give it to me."

In my opinion, I give a pass for the people who try when they speak. But on writing or typing, it's different. It's those people who constantly use run-on sentences, comma splices, S-V errors, and failing to put the right punctuation and don't put a period at the end of a sentence.

 

 

For the last thing you mentioned, that's what happened to my 2016 Christmas sketchbook (it's not actually Christmas themed, I name my sketchbooks from where or when I got them because I have that many). It used to have 70 pages, now it has 6 because those "awesome" drawings turned out to be one monstrosity after the other.

Thumbtack, bring back that subject!

I understand the issue might not be due to simple ignorance to some cases, and of course I wouldn't dare judge anyone from their Autism spectrum. Stammering is one thing, I myself stutter a lot when I'm talking to a stranger, or when I'm upset about something. I was referring more to the I-don't-know-how-to-pronounce-this-but-I'll-use-that-word-anyway-because-it's-cool type of person. Of course a mistake once in a while is totally understandable (I myself often slip up on the present simple in third person, which is a really basic rule), but my classmate was just embarassing. Long story short she was trying to tell something to my girlfriend, who only speaks dutch and english, and I swear I wanted to bury myself for how many pronunciation defects she was showing off. I mean, if you come from 13+ years of school you should at least know that "oo" is pronounced differently from "o", yet this dude kept torturing each word and our ears, even after I corrected her with all respects and politeness I could show. But I guess if you didn't learn the phonetics in over a decade, the ship as long sailed and there's no chance for you to learn it now. It just annoys me because said person kept correcting me (and if not perfect I consider myself quite skilled for the language) and I just hate those who play the teacher when they don't know how to construct a sentence in the first place.

 

With a written text is even worse, I agree. Like, you have all the time to read what you're typing down. Read, and correctA typo or two aren't a big deal, Thor knows how many did I make. But even here on the forum I read certain posts that in my opinion should be taken down just because the grammar used in said topics is simply desolating. I mean, in order to avoid misunderstandings, but also to let yourself be known as a certain type of person, you should learn your grammar before even thinking about using a language that's not your own.

 

I just experienced the last situation. I'm planning a series of fanarts dedicated to the Clan leaders from the Warrior Cats series. All was good, until I decided to try and digitalize them. It's still a work in progress, but Oh Gods I'm ashamed because it looks like it was painted by a five years old.

I know exactly what you mean, I'm so sick of little teenies trying to use phrases just to be cool. It's embarrassing, and that comes from a person who hasn't used English to communicate outside of school until not even a year ago.

kfsdjhksdf I feel the English thing but in my own language. Except that I don't often correct people unless they repeatedly make the same mistake. Languages are hard enough on its own already. (the whole van Gogh thing lol) What I don't like is when people correct my pronunciation when it's actually correct, though. When 'Murricans correct my UK pronunciation.... aaaaaaaaaa

It's even worse when teachers do things like that. My sister's teacher corrected her vocabulary test because she wrote the less used but still correct translation, and when she asked the teacher said it wasn't correct and didn't even bother to check.

Oh, and her elementary school teacher didn't want to believe dayflies can live longer than a day until an "expert" said it two years later xD

asdhasd yeah lmaoo, they do that sometimes. I remember gyetting 'office' corrected to 'station' once when it really shouldn't have mattered contextually.

I used to have a teacher in college who used 'also' instead of 'as well' every single time and I was super curious about the rules regarding that. I asked her about it and she got mad. Like, super mad. 'my boyfriend is British so I know what's right!'-kind of  mad. I didn't even correct her.

 

Ahh, good times.

Thumbtack, bring back that subject!

My history of art teacher, back in high school, once corrected me and took one point off my grade because I pronounced Van Gogh... How it should actually be pronounced. When I made her notice the dutch pronunciation is different from the most used she said "Maybe, but we're not in Holland so just stick to the pronunciation you were taught." (The Holland thing is her doing)

It's been six years and I still hold a grudge to her.

Technically your teach is kinda right. Animals don't know right from wrong. Actually the moral line differs from evolutionary stage to stage as well as other things. To save myself writing an entire thesis, I'll just say, all sentient beings have a structure passed down generationally.
A dog would have a greater understanding than a rat for instance but a Domestic Rat could possibly have greater compression than a wild canine.

Isn't right and wrong something humans made up? That's also different for different humans.

Yeah, dogs have conscience, at least that's what it looks like when dogs accidentally bark at their owner when they don't recognize him and then pretend there really is someone they have to bark at behind their owner. That is a different thing than being tought not to jump on the table or something like that.

My family does not understand

My family does not understand my way of seeing things or my interests. Only person that fully understands me is my Grandma. Don't know what I would do without her :(

 

My mom and sister always making comments over how I look. 

Parents always complain due to the fact that I hardly talk to anyone. What's the point of talking when no one is listening or rolling their eyes? I always have to repeat myself because of my high-pitched voice and the fact that I cannot pronounce the s and r letters properly. It's not my fault. I was born this way.

They continously make comments due to the fact that I can get very emotional. They always call me a cry-baby 'cause I cry over "everything". Breaking a glass for example. It's because for me the sound is amplified due to my Aspergers, so loud sounds are like thunder to me.

My family also says that I am very boring. I always talk about the same topics. My grandma does not mind because she actually likes the creatures that I talk about. The only time when I actually have a smile on my face is whenever she is around. If not for her, I would not be here today.

It's awful to blame someone for things they're not even responsible for.

I don't know about you, but being called a crybaby doesn't actually cause not being one, rather the opposite.

Your grandma sounds like an amazing person and I'm glad you're happy about her existence and that she makes you happy.

You don't have to answer, but I'm kinda curious what it is you talk about? You seem to be avoiding to mention it and if you don't want to tell us don't feel pressured doing so.

Me and my grandma always talk

Me and my grandma always talk about How To Train Your Dragon, Godzilla, God of War, Skyrim and Spore. Sorry for not mentioning that earlier.

My grandma really is amazing. She always knows just what to say to make me calm down. It's been really hard for her to not get angry at the rest for always upsetting me, but she has always been there. The others just don't understand our relationship. She was the one who raised me, since my parents were always working.

 

My parents also complain because I love to collect action figures. I've always wanted one of Godzilla and even though they continously say that will never happen, I will keep my hopes up. I will not allow them to destroy my dreams of having him as an action figure.
