Never fear, the Friday Poll is here! I was out of town last week and buried in work in preparation for it the week before. Did I miss anything in LJ Land? Didn't think so.
eideteker -- Has twitter peaked? Have we reached Peak Tweet? What can this mean?
Twitter peaked in July. One could say, it has Tweeked, or that the public is Tweeked Out.
The world will once again be forced to wait until 9pm to bask in Larry King's musings.
Like MySpace and that other one, this means that egocentric social media will only last so long. The point of social media is for dialogues, not monologues.
Also, fuck corpspeak for making the word "dialogue" sound cheezy even when it's appropriate.
renob423 -- what movie did you think was great when you were younger only to see it years later and find out it sucks? Ok, to address the inevitable Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?!?! But I loooooooooooove that mooooovie!!! responses this is bound to elicit: we all love these movies. But we all know at least half of that love is rooted in nostalgia and the fact that we were more naive and malleable when we were 13. That being said:
The Breakfast Club.
License to Drive.
renob423 -- what movie does everyone love but in reality it's really bad and you feel like the only person that doesn't like it?
That steaming pile of shit Sideways.
renob423 -- worst johnny depp movie? meh. Early favorite on Runway?
pooplord -- What are the chances of getting a job that you may just be an eensy bit underqualified for if it's working with people who already know and love you and you were called back for a second interview?
Stronger than someone who wasn't called back for a second interview.
As good if not better than the unknown/unloved candidates who were called back for a second interview.
Outstanding. My office is filled with people who are underqualified for their jobs and generallly disliked, yet they collect a paycheck anyway.
Lamest part of the lamefest that is the Olympics:
The "official carpet cleaner solution of the 2010 Olympics" commercials.
Putting up with the babbling chuckleheads who get excited about this stupid shit.
Having to endure the aforementioned chucklehead's shock that you didn't see last night's ice dancing or whateverthefuck was on.
The preemption of quality programming.
The Lost premiere:
I'm a dumbass who doesn't watch Lost.
Least sexy of the top 10 on Billboard's 50 Sexiest Songs of All Time:
#1 - Physical. I don't care what that song is actually about, as far as I know it's about chubby people jazzercizing themselves into shiny 80's attractive people.
#10, #2 - Songs by Rod Stewart. Rod Stewart is the antisexy.
#6 - Hot Stuff. Billboard apparently believes that "sexy" is what you dance with your grandmother to at your cousin's wedding.
#9 - Kiss You All Over/#4 - Too Close. Perhaps Billboard is attempting to establish some sort of indie cred by including two songs nobody remembers in their top 50 of "all time".
