Things I Thought I wouldn’t Like.
A bit of an introduction:
I’m one of those people who hates something (be it films, bands, co-workers, anything really) before i’ve really even experienced it. You know the type, complains about how terrible (insert popular blockbuster action flick here) is going to be, then never even sees it – while continually trashing it. Yeah, i’m one of those goons.
I have recently taken to proactively seeking out these pieces of work in order to dispel the terrible rumors that I’ve been spreading to myself about them. Take, The Rolling Stones for instance. The Stones are one of those bands that I decided early on i would never own an album of.
They’re too old to rock and roll, but weren’t always. They’ve withstood the test of time and deserve a fair shake. There has to be more depth in there than the overplayed radio hits we’ve all been subjugated to after all of these years.
But this isn’t about the Rolling Fucking Stones (it may be eventually, but that was just one of the many examples i could provide at this moment – i hold strong opinions about things i know nothing about).
This is about ALL the things that i thought i wouldn’t like. Beginning with:
