. said:Picking a mate based on their taste in music is immature. If you are over age 25 and still believe musical preference is critical you have a problem.



Yeah, like I said. It's more complex than that. I wouldn't pick anyone solely based on it. But it can be a point of annoyance and argument.

That being said, like another poster above, I would not willingly date someone with no broader appreciation of culture than Adam Sandler movies and shitty pop music. Nor have I. All the relationships I've been in in recent history, I've been fortunate to have common ground in such things.

You're never going to agree on absolutely everything, but it's nice to have many things in common.

I actually understand where she's coming from on this. One of the first long-term relationships I was in when I was 20 years old, the breakup was precipitated on a difference in pop culture. It's always more complex than that, of course, but it was a point of contention.

Frankly I'd be annoyed as fuck by a woman who listened to shit like Adele and Lady Gaga all the time.

. said:I know what you mean, buti don't loveit, I find it somewhat sad. These kids coming up are being robbed. They're not being exposed to good creative material. When was it decided to stop being original? Kids now only see remakes and reboots, hear crappy music or covers. It's as though the world began only 12 years ago. This is probably just someone who is getting old not "getting it." Which is fine.



On the same note as this, I've seen dozens of teenagers in Youtube comments saying "The music of my generation sucks," "Music from the past 10 years sucks," "I only listen to classic rock," etcetera.

Some of these kids get it, at least.

. said:The Beatles version.

While I can appreciate covers, I rarely hear a cover that I think is better than the original.



I love it when retards (i.e. :genyconnor: on Youtube go ballistic over a 20+ year old song that they think ripped off a song made by some autotuned "singer" made within the past 10 years.

Fucking idiots.

From what I've read in recent years, they've got a ton of poor people from Eastern Europe joining. French regulars are one thing, FFL recruits are another.

. said:Good advice when drinking in bars in certain parts of the world.



I talked to a marine who did joint training with the FFL. He said they were as good as anyone in their echelon. This was years ago and I don't remember many of the details, but I remember him saying they drank a lot.

I recall him disliking the FAMAS for some reason, as well, although I don't remember why.

You pretty much won't find anyone who has worked alongside the FFL saying bad things about them. They get in really shitty places, too.

His wife's family must be relatively rich in China. Renting shit like a Hummer limo, being followed by a procession of Mercedes and BMWs.

And he said a THOUSAND relatives came to visit for the wedding and gave them MORE THAN $60,000 Canadian.

Shiny New Kid said:God, that would make Youtube just about unusable for me



I don't know what the logic is...sometimes you can click on 3 or 4 videos and not get one, then you can refresh the same video you were watching and get one.

Some of them are like 10 seconds long and you can't skip them.

Some of the other ones are longer, but you can skip them after 5 seconds.

You've been able to for four years now.

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/11/business/media/11youtube.html

One year after YouTube, the online video powerhouse, invited members to become partners and added advertising to their videos, the most successful users are earning six-figure incomes from the Web site. For some, like Michael Buckley, the self-taught host of a celebrity chatter show, filming funny videos is now a full-time job.

Horrible actress who has never been in a noteworthy movie (that I can think of off the top of my head.)

I think the only one I've ever seen is the one with Sean Connery that came out in the 90's.

Shit, 11 million views in one week. Edit: Almost 12.

What do you get paid for something like that? A few hundred bucks? A couple thousand? Not bad for taking a few minutes of video.

I've got some red in the beard too (not that I let it go out more than a few days at best.) I've also got some white hairs on one side of my face, and I was born in the late 70's. Handful of white hairs in my sideburn on the same side, too, but virtually none on the other.

Thankfully baldness skipped past me and my dad, too. One grandfather was bald at 22 or 23, other wasn't. I have an uncle and his son on my dad's side who are both bald.
