MKMOT/50 Days of HATE- Day 21 (October 3, 2012)

Look, I just HATE this one. Always have, always will. Why elaborate, when you guys have mailed it in? Besides, regular readers of this balog know that nothing good comes out of Gainesville, FL. And there's no running from that fact.

Do I have to remind you again that you can talk about whatever you want? You can talk about whatever you want. Guy Whos and gibberish or GTFO. You decide. Either way, my HATE isn't going away. Are you?

Let this horrible song be a reminder of why I balog. Just the title- I wouldn't want you to have to actually listen to it. I'm not that evil.

When I say this, I mean it... It's open.

  1. This song is unquestionably terrible, so I'll talk about something else.

    I don't know if there are any other Jeopardy! fans out there, but this champion needs to be stopped. If you saw last night, you'll understand.

    1. Is that the woman with the green shirt that was clearly designed to highlight two of her...uh...skills? Because if so, yeah.

    2. Nope, far worse. This (click link) one knocked her off, and was incredibly obnoxious in doing so. She kept giggling and gesticulating with excitement in a way that was more taunting than endearing, and I'm pretty sure both of the other contestants understandably wanted to punch her by the end.

      Plus, I knew Final, and she didn't, so how good can she really be?

      I agree 100%

      I find myself hating a lot of the Jeopardy contestants, but I can't recall the last time I was actually mad about somebody winning because it meant that I had to see them again.

      I sincerely hope someone comes in tonight and absolutely destroys her.

    4. I haven't felt this kind of contestant hate for as long as I can remember. She must go down, and go down hard.

    5. First commercial update - It's the smug smiles and body language that she puts off after every single correct question she gives that makes me hate her so. We don't need reaction shots, Sara, just give us an answer.

      I'm pulling for Michelle tonight. She's all business.

    6. Oh, bitch! Did you just see her reaction to the Daily Double?! Act like you've been there before, Sara, this isn't child's play. Enough with the inflection, too. Nobody needs that.

      ...and as they cut to the 2nd commercial break, she immediately started lecturing the other two contestants. She needs to be destroyed.

  2. Oh, was that the one who sounded like she was singing every answer she gave? Because if so, even more yeah.

    1. Well, she certainly belongs on 50 Days of Hate, so she may have been singing. As a pretty formidable hater myself, just her picture is already getting me going. I won't be seeing the show tonight, but she must go down.

  3. I spent the summer after freshman year of college working for a temp agency, and ended up just after the 4th of July at a dental-products manufacturer, collating the same B-to-B advertising packet for two weeks straight, eight hours a day, without a chair, in a non-air-conditioned warehouse (the temperature was in the mid-to-high-nineties, with oppressive humidity), with only an open garage-door for air-flow. The radio blared the local "no rap and no hard stuff" Top 40 station, and played this, Shawn Colvin's "Sunny Came Home," and "Sex and Candy" in a continuous loop, with terrible radio ads in between.

    After about a week, with nobody to talk to, I started picturing the songs as really boring characters in a terrible suburban love triangle. "Sunny Came Home" was an aged, self-dramatizing ex-prom-queen, unhappily married to ex-jock/amiable schmuck "All For You," and embittered by her dead-end present... while "Sex and Candy" was the smirky little teen dropout with a band/her best friend's son, who maybe-- just maybe-- could help her feel sexy and young and for God's sake, just feel SOMETHING. I wasn't great with domestic tragedy plot twists, so the story just kind of ambled along miserably and sordidly, and petered out rather than ending with a flourish... kinda like the similarly-themed Jen Aniston/Jake Gyllenhaal vehicle Good Girl would a few years later.

    After falling asleep very early-- something like 7 pm on the last Friday I worked there AND the next day, I went to a doctor as per my mother's request; he looked concerned once he examines me, and sent me for bloodwork. Once he saw the results, he looked EXTREMELY concerned. As it turns out, the dental-products warehouse had a gas leak, and I had been breathing carbon monoxide; most likely, the only thing that kept me from complete toxicity/death was the open garage door.

    tl; dr-- Nice try, Sister Hazel. I'll see YOU dead, mothermother.

    1. That's pretty crazy. Sounds like a top notch place, surprised something like that could happen there.

    2. Something about this story just doesn't add up. No, not at all. I mean, advertising packets for dental products? Don't quality dental products pretty much sell themselves?

      Pretty fishy, StF.

      If I can inspire even one person to recall horribly unfulfilling summers and horrific near death experiences through the power of HATEful music, this whole thing has been worth my while. Thank you. Thank...you. This is why I balog.

    4. I did let the temp agency know about it after the fact, when I had turned down two opportunities they offered me that next Monday and Tuesday. They were... disinclined to act.

      The company did shut down or change hands-- I forget which-- about 8 or 9 months later.

      Weird Footnote: it wasn't the last time in my kiddie-employment years that an employer poisoned me with carbon monoxide and didn't let me know; virtually the same thing happened-- minus the collating/terrible music-- two years or so later, at a clothing import/export office/warehouse. We found out about the leak when the gas company showed up to check on it one morning, before the boss got in.

  5. I see what this is. This whole list so far has been a cry for help.

    Some of these songs I've never heard of, some of them I dislike, and some of them I hate as well. But some of them are just not hate worthy.

    So basically what we have is a list of songs that remind Marv of that time he got close to love and lost. All of these songs were probably favorites of his girl Mabel, the roadside cafe waitress who broke his heart when she ran off with the big time meth dealer in town because he could afford a brand new Toyota Corolla with his fat stacks of cash.

    C'mere Marv, let me give you the hug you need.

  6. In the late 90's, right after I got out of college, I had no friends to hang out with. None of my friends from college lived near where I had moved to in New Hamsphire, and I was too lazy to make new ones. As a result, I had no support system in place to stop me from making horrible CD purchases through BMG. I'm sad to say that I wound up purchasing ...Somewhere More Familiar because I had to fill out the order and thought this song wasn't "all that bad." Other shitty purchases during that time of my life include (but not limited to):
    Three Dollar Bill, Yall$ by Limp Bizkit
    Hey! Album by Marvelous 3
    The State by Nickleback

    These albums, and others just as shitty, remain in my iTunes library as a cautionary tale that "In your 20's, you think you know what you're doing, but in reality, you don't know shit."

  7. Becuase ecause of both the IT system I use at work, and also for organizational purposes, I type in CAPS all friggin day, yet, I never, EVER use CAPS LOCK. Anything that I type in caps is done with PINKY ON THE SHIFT KEY. I hate pushing and un-pushing CAPS LOCK. Is that weird or normal??

    ReplyDelete

    1. Mine isn't constant but when I do type all caps it's easier to not use the caps lock. I tend to use the numbers / characters on the top row a lot and it's just easier not to flip flop back and forth between using or not using the shift key. So really, doing that all day sounds pretty weird to me. Are you always that angry or just when you type?

    2. Depends whether you're a FOOTBALL player in the NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE

    3. The CAPS LOCK key is merely there to completely fuck you when you're typing on a laptop keyboard that is just a WEE BIT too small for your not-even-relatively-that-meaty hands.

      Also, my girlfriend* uses it for single capital letters.

  8. I am working up a serious hate for the scrolling stories panel on the right side of Deadspin's screen. Why is it necessary for the silly thing to always drop the 'NEWER STORIES...' link to just above whatever story you're reading? Then you have to click 'NEWER STORIES...' to get to the next one, etc. etc. etc. I figure this may make their programming a little easier but it is a serious pain. Especially when you click it and there are no new stories.

    1. I hate that feature too. I have started reading stories from the top down, just so that I won't get so pissed, then just reloading DS to see what stories have been added since.
