    comedy is a little different, it's purpose is more simple. the purpose of comedy is to be funny, I like things that are funny. therefore, I liked the Hangover
    I think at the end of the day what I really hate is people who are fake, people pleasing and crowd pleasing. people like that just royally piss me off

    Mainstream = people pleasing.

    What's intrinsically wrong with pleasing people? You are an element of "people". Is an event more fun for you if everyone around you has a bad time?

    You sound quite a bit like Walter Benjamin here.

    a few points

    1) no. people pleasing is an intention; mainstream is a result. being mainstream can either be the result of
    a) people pleasing
    b) highly political/corporate record label deals and marketing or
    c) getting popular by focusing on what is truly important: the message you wish to express with your art.

    2) people pleasing is doing something with the purpose of gaining the adoration, attention or acceptance of those around you. people pleasing is for weak, insecure parasites who need others to validate their pathetic existance

    3) to answer your question, other people's mood usually has no effect on how much I enjoy something. when it does though, it is more often that I feel better because the negative energy of the people around me is more amusing than positive energy. for example, when I first saw Inglourious Basterds, I was the only one in the theatre laughing, this made it even funnier so I laughed more
