Since I am a Socialist, I'd prefer Socialism, which I would like to think is not as left-wing as communism and not as inefficient as capitalism, yes, I did call capitalism inefficient.

Well Bama-ditto on everything except the Irish dancing and coffee.

All I can say is-go to Riverdance once, and maybe you'll change your mind. It's amazing. Maybe one day you'll get 'brave' enough to try.

And I can't live w/ out my two cups of coffee every morning-but just the regular stuff, not 'fancy'.

I don't want to go into my dislikes-it's too negative for this early in the morning. So I'll just say one thing I like-reading Bama's posts on Interference.

I'm curious, what do you dislike about Amnesty? I've heard a few people say they disagree with Amnesty, but so far none of them have told me what specifically they dislike. So, what's your opinion?

(please note I'm not criticising your opinion, I'm just curious about it. Thanks!)

I expected it would only be a matter of time before one of you secured me in your sites on this one. Considering that I could not even endure the 60-second commercials they used to show on televsion, I am certain that I would not enjoy an entire show. I guess it means I have no culture, but I have never enjoyed such performances.

Addendum 1

32. Madonna
33. Polka (dots, dancing, music, all of it)
34. Tori Amos
35. The guy on NBC Sports who asked Pete Rose the inappropriate question a few years ago.

And, thank you, Gina Marie, for liking my posts.

Well, it certainly doesn't mean you 'have no culture'-but my addendum-Riverdance only post Michael Flatley-and NOT Lord Of The Dance or Feet Of Flames.

I cannot stand Flatley-an arrogant pompous fool imo who gives Irish people a bad name. OK-that's my short rant on my 'dislike' for the day. And I confess-I didn't know what a couple of things on your list were-but I trust your judgment.

And you're quite welcome-I do so enjoy your Lettermanesque sense of humor.

Gina Marie:

your response regarding someone named Flatly and his dances further distances me from the whole Irish dancing movement; please bear in mind that I never even saw any of the "Breakin'" movies about breakdancing movies in the 1980s.

Does this include "hot & sour soup"? I see you are from Hong Kong, and the Chinese restaurants here serve a wonderous concoction of hot & sour soup. Surely you don't dislike it?

Don't worry about it. I'm gay and I can't stand the whole "camp" act either. It kinda scares me, and, most certainly, I don't find it attractive.

OOH! My turn! But I will only list 10 dislikes.
[list=1][*]Accordion music. My grandfather used to play it and he was good at it. But, God bless his soul, I couldn't stand that noise.[*] Polka Music. I'm Polish and Czech - so this is almost sacrilegious - but this is more noise I could never tolerate.[*] Radiohead. Speaking of noise... I liked "Bends" - but after that, Radiohead became VERY uninteresting. I'd rather listen to N'Sync and Britney than them. Yes, you read right - I'd prefer trashy pop music over the overblown, bloated sounds of Radiohead. I feel they are one of the most over-rated trash bands ever.[*] Billy Corgan's voice. Unlike Radiohead, I actually liked the Smashing Pumpkins' music and lyrics. However, Corgan's nasally, whiney voice irritated my ears. I could have adored the Pumpkins if Corgan just didn't sing.[*] The Bush family. I didn't like the first George Bush and I don't like the second. Yes, the second is doing a decent job given today's world events, but that's because he has good speech writers and good cabinet members - perhaps the only wise thing he ever really did. And don't get me started on Jeb.[*] Any mention of U2 "selling-out." This all started during the AB era. Now tell me, after a band sells over 20 million albums (with JT and R&H), why on earth would this band then "sell-out" on AB? If U2 were to even approach "selling-out," it would be to make another JT. That said, even if U2 made another JT, is even that "selling-out?" After all, that is their sound! While the album wouldn't be as original, can anyone call U2 "sell-outs" for basically sounding like themselves? However, U2 didn't make another JT, they made AB, which, much like JT, sounded like nothing else out there at the time. Yet, from that moment on, moronic music fans have been declaring U2 as "sell-outs," and this ticks me off big time.[*] Calling ANY musician a "sell-out." I dislike this term "sell-out" so much that I will never use it again - even if I feel it is true. That's because I feel most people do not know when or how to use this term. For example, some people like a band, but if that band becomes a success, suddenly that band has "sold-out." Others dislike a band's new album, so they declare the band as "sell-outs." The world is full of morons, I guess.[*] The attitude of most Bostonians at first. Native Bostonians are very cold people. I've lived here for 4.5 years and have really just started breaking through the shell of some Bostonians. I've also seen people who moved here suddenly acquiring this "cold shell" after being here a while. Formerly warm and welcoming people, become very distrusting of new people. I will admit, once one breaks through this shell, Bostonians are amongst the loyalist of friends. It's just that it takes sometimes years to get through that shell. Coming from the mid-west, where I was able to strike up a conversation with anyone and had friends galore (and still do - every time I visit the MidWest), I am still in culture shock over the attitude in the general Boston area.[*] Discussions on Bono's voice. O.K., even I admit Bono's voice isn't as powerful as it once was. But really - listen to this man. Early on, Bono was a horrible signer, so much so that the Edge even wanted to fire him as the singer! As the years passed, Bono learned to sing, with evidence of this first appearing in the studio with UF. JT and R&H showcase Bono's vocal talents. However, even back then, Bono's vocals would suffer on a given night in concert (notice his voice cracking during the "woo-hoos" in "Bad" on R&H). Add 14 years onto this, and it's easy to see how his vocals might not be as strong. However, ATYCLB contains the strongest Bono vocals I've heard in over a decade. And while Bono struggled through the PopMart Tour, he sounded outstanding during the Elevation Tour, often extending notes and really proving to me how great of a singer he really is. Did Bono have off nights during the Elevatin Tour? You bet - but we all have off days. To attack a man for an off night is ludicrous. Bono's vocals are the reason I became interested in U2 and they are the reason I have remained a fan to this day. So stop it with the vocal slamming - I don't buy it at all.[*] Dalmatian hair. I love my dalmatian Alex. My world would not be the same without him. However, as much as I adore him, those little black and white hairs are EVERYWHERE! I never knew a short-haired dog would shed so much - yet I think he sheds his entire coat of hair everyday! My vacuum cleaner routinely contains 99% dog hair. UGH! [/list=a]
