Okay, so who's up for admitting some guilty pleasures? You know, things that we normally don't share. Anyone?

I'll go first. I am a huge Yu-Gi-oh fan. Yes, you heard me. It's a stupid anime about a possessed boy, a magic puzzle and a card game. I'm completely hooked. And, Merrick and the Spirit of the Millenium Ring are hot!

So, please someone else post something so I don't look so stupid. Please?

Anyone?

Ouch, Sara...


Me: stupid, BAD, Japanese old sci-fi movies... such as the "Green Slime"

Edit: oh yes, and I'm going to be teased endlessly by this... when I was in college, I used to watch All My Children every day. There you have it... what can I say, soap operas are very addictive.

I'm more of a Magic: The Gathering person myself. :)

But I have far too many LoTR action figures. Far, far, too many. As in, I've packed up things we got as wedding gifts to make room for them. At least I've managed not to buy any of the game or trading cards, but my resolve is weakening with each expansion. *whine!*

Were we separated at birth????

I love Yu-Gi-Oh, especially the Japanese version! I'm on Volume Kajillion of the DVDs, well into the Dartz storyline.

I play the card game (much to the delight and amusement of a little kid who was selling bags of cards: "Grown-ups play this?").

Not all that grown-up, kid! http://instagiber.net/smiliesdotcom/cwm/3dlil/wink.gif

Only one thing: I'm not terribly guilty about this particular pleasure.

Sara, just yesterday I was humming along to "Incomplete." After the song ended, the DJ announced somewhat sheepishly that it was the latest Backstreet Boys song. I was so shocked I nearly rear-ended the car in front of me.

I haven't heard it. My little sister told me they had a new song but I told her to keep it away from me. It's her fault I ended up liking Drowning.

That's okay. I like "Bye, Bye, Bye" by 'N Synch. :o

There's actually a story behind this, that justifies it, okay? :o

Driving along, teen-aged daughter in the car, and she always changes the station on me. Well this song came on, and I admit it, I liked the beat.

For mother's day, she and her little sister bought me the CD. And yes, I listened to it. Cayleigh loved it.

In fact, if that song started playing when she was dead asleep, she'd wake right up, and start singing with it!:ROFL:

My other guilty pleasures are:

Jackie Chan movies. I don't care how "bad" they are...they're Jackie Chan movies. Nuff Said.

Full Metal Alchemist. I have become incredibly addicted to this show. I also like Inuyasha, and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. I'm an Adult Swim addict. Especially the anime.

I also like clove cigarettes on occasion, and the California Dreams (pretty pastel colours).

I love good, imported Single Malt Scotch. At least 12 y/o, preferably 18 or older. Never a blend and never younger than 12. Ever. Especially the Islays. A good Amatillado, Cognac, and Port.

I have expensive taste in liquors. Needless to say, I don't buy them often, and don't drink much at a time for that very reason. I guess that can be a good thing, huh?

Nothing! You guys are sooooo minor league when it comes to guilty pleasures.

Mine:

I think "Teletubbies" is fascinating -- watch it whenever I can (which is not often, which is also probably why it still fascinates me).

Marshmallow Peeps. Preferably yellow. Either fresh or stale, depending on my mood.

Baaaaaaaaaad Hong Kong triad (gangster) movies -- you know, the ones that make Jackie Chan look like Laurence Olivier (sp?) performing "Hamlet." The ones where the English subtitles read: "Oh, you mak me so angary! I shall kick you behind!"

Diana,

My spawnling has 5,000+Yugioh cards, and he has literally memorized the atk and defense points of each and every single one of them. It's absolutely amazing. He's seven years old, does so-so in math at school, but he can do yugioh related algebra in his head. I can name any single card, and he can give me the details.

I can still kick his butt at the game though. In fact, I'm undefeated. Against seven year olds.

Sailor Kenshin and Navi,

Yeah, I play Yu-Gi-Oh too. I started out to play my nephew, but he doesn't play too much anymore (too old). I have a very impressive deck. If I could figure out an online way to do it, we'd have a game or two.

Keep it coming, folks!

I watch The Young and the Restless. I've been hooked on it for over 10 years now.

I must have been a dancer in another life because even though I usually listen to rock and roll/heavy metal and avoid chick flicks, I sometimes listen to dance music and enjoy movies such as Footloose, Flashdance, Center Stage, and Shall We Dance.

That's all I can think of right now.

Hello, my name is Mary, and I'm a GH addict.

I have watched GH off and on since I was in high school during the Luke and Laura days. At several points when my husband and I were working at home, we would run AMC, OLTL, and GH all afternoon in the background. They are never all good at the same time. They all seem to slump in alternate years. Last year or two, it's been GH only. And lately, I've given it up altogether. For now. I'll be back.

Another guilty pleasure: Bad fantasy TV. Charmed, Hercules, etc. I have seen much too much of that crap.

My guilty pleasures are easy. MTV and VH1. I'm one of those people that when around others, complains that they don't show music anymore, but privately, I love almost all the shows. Real World/Road Rules and the Inferno., Pimp my Ride, MTV Docs, VH1's The Surreal Life, and I even watched that Strange Love show with Flavor Flav and Briggette Neilsen. What's wrong with me????????????

Aren't guilty pleasures supposed to be embarrassing? Here, I'll post 2 of mine, let's see if they come off as bad as I think they are.

First guilty pleasure. I'm a 34 year-old father of 2, and I still play Dungeons & Dragons with a small group each week. But here's the kicker: no 34 year-old fathers play the game anymore, so I play with a group of 5 guys all in their 20s. When a recent game ran late, the DM pumped his fist up and down triumphantly and said "we're adults now, we can stay out as late as we want! Woohoo!" He's a good guy, but I was reminded at that moment that I was clearly out of place.

Second guilty pleasure. Vampire movies. But not just the cool Brad Pitt movies. All of them. Pointy teeth? I have to see it. It was made in 1970 with a $500 budget and everyone in it was higher than a kite? Yeah, gotta see that. Jesus Franco? Sergio Grieco? Harry Kmel? Sign me up! Cheesy psychedelic effects? Must watch it. Embrace the Darkness, part 25? Mmmm. Yummy.

It's to the point that my wife just mutters "damn it" if we're looking for movies and she sees a new vamp film on the racks. She knows I'll find it.

I'm not a fan of reality shows BUT...(and it's a big but) I was channel flicking--read procrastinating--the other day and I stumbled over this show on VH-1 called "Stripsearch. And I did a severe doubletake because the host is the Founder of Manpower and someone I met a few times Way Back When. It was really odd. Plus...hmm...half naked men.

Diana Hignutt
06-14-2005, 01:41 PM
American Idol counts as a guilty pleasure? I'll fess up to that one too.

Gary Oldman does, in fact, rock. The man is brilliant. He was good in Dracula, but I thought everybody else in that movie was horrible (yes, even Anthony Hopkins). My favorite vampire movie has to be Interview with a Vampire.

It's been years since I played Dungeons and Dragons, but I always had fun. No shame there.

Hmmm...would Doctor Who be considered a guilty pleasure, I wonder?

This is fun...like psyhcotherapy without the copay.

Hey Diana- I'm willing to fess up... cringe... Drowning by the Backstreet Boys is one of my favorite songs.... ugh, it hurts to say out loud.
Oh boy, say it fast, like pulling off a bandaid... my little sister called me at 10ish last night to say that The Backstreet Boys were on Behind the Music on VH1. Ugh. I left the chat last night to go watch it. I know! What am I, 14? And I actually watched it, in its entirety! I don't even like pop music!

The novels Stuart Little, The Trumpet of the Swan, and The Wind in the Willows, as well as the short story "The Reluctant Dragon."

I know, I know, they're outdated relics of a bygone era in children's literature and no sane author should consider E. B. White and Kenneth Grahame as literary patron saints in today's market, but there it is.

Well, I was going to go it alone and put it out there, but you beat me to it. I love to dance to D-I-S-C-O (Ugh! It's so hard to type. I can't even say it out loud.) while I'm cleaning the house. I sing too. And force my children to join in. My girls are still little and think this is great fun. My son is 11 and threatens to turn me into Child Protective Services.

I also love 80s music, but after several public slips ups, I've found out that's not frowned upon. Forgetting where you are and belting out, "Pour some sugar on me" on the baking aisle of the grocery store while mimicking a pole dance with your three children and several strangers looking on, however, is.

Just for you: Fellowship of the Peep (http://www.lordofthepeeps.com/lotp/fotp.html)

This site is obviously the creation of some yearling with too much time on his hands and (peep-sourced) sugar coursing through his veins ...

I mean: True peeps are chicks, not those Johnny-come-lately two-dimensional rabbits!

Nonetheless, I appreciate the effort. Thanks for link, PattiTheWicked.

No other marshmallow-peeps-as-my-guilty-pleasure folks out there? Amazing.

Nonsense. What's the point of having children if you can't embarrass them in public?

My dad strikes up conversations with complete and random strangers, and then keeps them roped in for an hour at a time.

I can't even being to count how many times family outings were ruined because my brother and I had to say, "Moooommmmm, Dad's talking to people again!"

I do have a fast car -- a chick-digs-it convertible at that! That's TOTALLY my guilty pleasure... I love taking LONG drives with the top down.
If it's a '65 Mustang, I'm there.

Oh yes, convertibles are cool, beautiful machines, but I hate what they do to my hair...I end up looking like I went to Yahoo Serious' hairdresser.

Digimon. (Yes, there was such a show, it went off the air several years ago.) I have roughly half that show's episodes on tape, mostly from Seasons 2 and 3.

I am also an audiophile (Can't get enough of music.) My favorite sound comes from, believe-it-or-not, vinyl. Specifically LP's, although I have a small collection of 45's, as well. If I can find an album I have on CD, on a record, I'll buy the record and give away the CD. Kind of dumb, I know, but there's something about that analog sound that's just better in many ways than digital, although I can't put my finger on it. Let's just say it has a fuller sound.

(Ironically, I'm apparently not the only one who thinks this way about records. I only recently found out that several companies still make brand-new records, and there are, to my knowledge, two stores in the Portland Metropolitan Area that sell brand-new records to the public. One of these days, I'll visit one of those stores.)

On the Digimon thing, I forgot to mention I also have--I can hardly say it--the movie.

I like a lot of the anime shows and movies. One of my favorites (that I have on DVD) is 'Spirited Away.' I love that movie. The animation is great and the story is very well-done too. The characters are cool, especially the girl Chihiro, and the dragon Haku, which are the two main characters.

'Spirited Away.'

I listened to the whole thing in Japanese while watching the storyboard. http://instagiber.net/smiliesdotcom/contrib/lynx/whitpleased.gif

There is just no way you are going to get me to admit in public that I watch Pokemon. I used to, though. Team Rocket finally got on my nerves too much.

I have to admit, I once had a jeep...about 6 years ago I guess. My guilty pleasure then was going out by myself on a summer evening with the top off and the doors off and just driving. It's the greatest thing. I loved those drives. (This reminds me of the thread about men going to the store for milk and being gone for hours...I used to be bad for that when I drove the jeep!)

I had a soft top jeep in college until it became impractical. It was really only useful for driving fast and listening to loud music. I have to admit that one of my favorite guilty pleasures now is rolling the windows down in whatever practical vehicle I am driving and blasting the loudest hardest rock music I can find. Driving very fast and going as far as I think i can go and back and still get milk home to my family without them calling 911 and having me reported missing. If I am making it a really guilty pleasure trip I smoke.

You too, huh? Right on. :Thumbs: I couldn't understand a word of the Japanese, but it's amazing to me how much the story changes around when you read the original English translation that came with it on the bottom of the screen.

My favorite example of this is the discrepancy between when Chihiro found out Haku was a dragon in the two different versions. Personally, I liked the original version better in that respect. It gave a sense of wonder to the movie that the English version didn't quite have. From a writer's standpoint, I thought the Japanese version told the story much better than did the English version.

Maybe, but there is nothing more endearing on the planet than a beaten-up Pikachu. Those welled-up eyes, the cross-hatched bruises on his little cheeks, the burns from where he got overloaded and frizzled ... How can you not love Pikachu? Pika Pika!

Guilty pleasure.......

Tsui Hark's Knock Off starring Jeane Claude Van-Damme as a Hong Kong fashion expert (great casting there) involved in the import of cheap jeans, only problem is that a little bomb is implanted in every single of his many jeans coming into Hong Kong.
They go off when the zips are undone to a very fruity level and Hong Kong on 'hand over night' is a very fruity place indeed....

So, yes - the zip part is made up, but all else is true (well, maybe not the fruity bit).

Country music.

I know what you mean, Jenna. But my cousin Mike was part of a group called The Ozark Mountain Daredevils in the 70's, so we have to like country music at least a little bit in my family. He sang the lead on Jackie Blue which was one of their biggest hits.

In a similar vein I will now divulge my guilty pleasure (which I could've sworn I posted before. Was there a similar thread in the past?).

Writing poetry.

While on this forum, it doesn't seem like a big deal - believe me, if any of my friends or associates or, to be honest, anybody who knows me in real life ever found out - it would be like... like... like saying I eat babies!!

(Thank you Jenna.)

No kidding! I had an Ozark Mountain Daredevils album. Don't know where it is now. In fact it's been years since I saw that thing. But... damn, The Daredevils.

'my wife and I are bi-curious

and I'm curious as to why we need it'

Back when I was a junior league rock star - lead guitarist - I HATED country music, though I've always loved Blue Grass. I nowadays actually like a little of it. DO NOT TELL ANYONE I KNOW...

It's not like it's up to guilty pleasure level, though.
