    Hey Jude.

They could have shortened the song, or come with more material, but they settled on that, and it drives me crazy.
    Yeah, "Hey Jude" is pretty long and overwrought. They have some real clunkers: "Mr. Moonlight," "Yellow Submarine," "Wild Honey Pie," etc.

    2000s R.E.M. is pretty brutal, although there were one or two very good songs on the newest album.

    Okay....

    Julia Roberts: I don't understand how she's even considered attractive, let alone one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood... particularly post-Pretty Woman, she looks like someone stretched her skin too tightly over her skull and the points at the corners of her lips and the tip of her nose could be used to skewer kebaabs.

    +1 Crash: mediocre at best... Swordfish was better.

    Katherine Hepburn: something about her vibe, the way she spoke, the coldness of her features... she couldn't hold a candle to the inimitably charming Audrey.

    Humphrey Bogart: I can't stand him... he looks like a narcoleptic and his delivery was always the same... just couldn't get on the Bogart bandwagon. In fact, he and Catherine Hepburn both suck balls.

    Gone with the Wind (cinematic version): Just terrible... I'd read the book and when I saw what Clark Gable had done with Rhett Butler I couldn't finish the movie after watching it halfway... I'm not going to go into why I despise it so much, since I'm already a hater of The Wizard of Oz and The Sound of Music... I'll take Citizen Kane over those three films any day.

    American yoga studios: They reduce Yoga to a set of exercises (aasanas), divorce it from its culture, and then call themselves yogins (which they're not). It's like what happened with various Chinese martial arts a few decades ago... and the spandex suits and stupid tinkling 'meditation' music are absolutely unforgivable... please, please, please, GOD stop wearing the spandex AND don't fool yourself into thinking you can reach true inner focus by listening to Yanni... people have been doing aasanas/hatha yoga (what they're doing is NOT Yoga and they shouldn't be calling it that) for years without having to wear spandex. The worst part about it all is that most "certified Yoga instructors" (certified? by what board? with what authority?) don't know what the fuck they're talking about or they've learned a little and deliver whatever knowledge they have with the pseudo-expertise that's derived from New Age philosophies which explore lots of areas with little depth. So I can understand why so many people in America think of Yoga and think lame. It's been rendered lame by (most of) its American purveyors.

    The British "Royal" Families: the current family is heir to a legacy which has caused more havoc and misery around the world than perhaps even the Nazis... over centuries they enslaved, stole, brainwashed, and even after being kicked out of various former colonies or forced to leave due to encroaching penury, the Brits and the royal families left disaster in their wake... many of the world's major conflicts can be traced to their terrible handling of various political situations which they'd forcibly taken control of earlier... they are at least partly to blame for what's going on in Israel-Palestine, India-Kashmir-Pakistan, and many of the African conflicts. Also, relegated to figurehead status, the royal family now serves as England's favorite pet, an overweight and severely overvalued welsh corgi, if you will, that drains taxpayers' money and lives a lavish life without doing anything... if the British people are happy with the arrangement, well, good for them... but it doesn't change the fact that the British royal families suck. (I include them because nowadays they're more tabloid fodder than political heads)

    Everybody Loves Raymond: NOT funny... lame jokes with lame actors and lame delivery and everything about that serial was totally predictable... Archie Bunker was a far better grouch than Raymond's dad, and Raymond's brother was Eeyore written for adults who think like children... the conflicts were sometimes non-conflicts, and Raymond was not funny... I'm sure his stand-up was far better....

    SDM-- I'm not big on all of Katharine Hepburn's stuff (she went through a period in the 50s where all she did was play old maids), but have you seen The Philadephia Story? Or The Lion in Winter? In the right thing, she can be wonderful. She and Audrey are unrelated--just happen to share the same last name.

    The cinematic version of GWTW, I can take or leave, but mostly leave. I don't identify with or care about a single person in that movie, and it's not a great example of directing or writing brilliance, either. Most people I know cried at some point during GWTW, which blows my mind. It just never moved me. If Scarlett had been more than a self-involved witch, or Melanie had been more than a stereotypical priss, etc., etc., maybe I'd have cared? Not to mention Ashley was milquetoast and Rhett was way too old to be the hot, dangerous guy. I like older men, but not Gable.

    I'll take a look at Philadelphia Story and and The Lion in Winter... I want to be a good sport... as for the Hepburn non-relation, I could claim that I never assumed their sister- or cousinhood but... yeah... I thought they were related... What are the odds with a name like Hepburn!

    Even in the book (GWTW) Scarlett was totally annoying... but in the book, I didn't identify with Scarlett at all, even though she was the putative protagonist... Rhett Butler was the one who caught my imagination... the book's better... only with A Clockwork Orange and Jurassic Park (there are a few others) were the film adaptations comparable to the counterpart novels...

    I've never figured-out where the line is drawn. If anyone can tell me exactly what defines hip-hop, I'll be able to say exactly what I feel about it.

    I do have general enough knowledge to say that I've never intentionally listened to it.
