Rant: "Counselling" w/ various interchangeable talk-shows

What is it w/ these people who go on talk shows to talk about their problems? (I won't name any talk show(s) in this rant b/c somebody will sue me.) As sympathetic as I am, surely if their problems have been affecting them for "years", & still are affecting them so badly that they can't cope/even function, they could've gone to their GPs to get some help & talk in complete privacy about whatever is wrong? "Affecting me for yrs"? 1st I've ever heard of it! They don't really need to sit in front of a studio audience telling the whole nation what is wrong. There's nothing really wrong w/ these people, b/c if there was they'd get help sooner.

The people on there just seem to want to become a celebrity & to get their 15mins of fame. As if your friends will look up to you b/c you've been on one!It doesn't make good, entertaining TV viewing if everyone on there is nice, behaves rationally towards each other. That's all the shows are; entertainment, in the loosest possible sense of the word. I swear the shows just have 3-4 different show topics, which get changed slightly to make the viewer think he/she's seen it. You shouldn't be able to become a celebrity that way anyway.To me celebrities are/were talented people who have actually done something useful, something worthwhile to get where they are, who deserve the attention they get. Tony Iommi, Iron Maiden, Gary Moore, AC/DC, Robert Plant [this list has been edited b/c I will be here for a week] are proper celebrities to me and/or people who've helped someone in some way, yet people on the talk shows who tell shocking stories that nobody needs/wants to hear get far more attention. It could be argued that nobody needs to hear any of the artists I've listed either, b/c they're all "only entertainment", but obviously listening to them is far less harrowing than watching talk shows.

Rant - Women w/ Anorexia Nervosa

Why it that young women feel the need to starve themselves to get attention nowadays? It's all "oh, look how much I haven't eaten , pay attention to me" . I hate all this self-starving. I hate how it's a fad now. There's people who are literally starving who would absolutely love to eat something, people who will be likely to die if they don't, yet there's young women who could eat whatever they wanted, whenever they wanted it, but they don't eat anything. They throw their perfectly good food away, making everyone worry about them, choosing not to eat when they should be happy they even have the choice to get things to eat. At the end of the day there is so much more to worry about in this world than what size you are.

I think "anorexia" is the wrong term anyway b/c it literally means "loss of appetite" b/c you're ill
/ the food you're eating is so disgusting you feel queasy (in which case give it to your dog/cat) "Anorexia" does not mean " ravenously hungry but stupidly forcing oneself not to eat." It should be renamed ES, for Enforced Starvation. If somebody is stupid enough to do this to their body, they shouldn't read any women's weekly glossy magazines, b/c all they do is give you stupid ideas when they wouldn't've dreamed of doing anything like this otherwise.

3. I HATE how if you say something NEUTRAL about gay ppl everyone gets pissed and thinks your anti-gay! I'm the last person to be anti gay! I cant STAND homophobes cause its so stupid and silly! so then these people all think I'm some homophobe when I'm the most open person to gays I have met. I'm the kind of person who doesnt really see a real line between "straight" and "gay". its just a preference! I have always said that if a girl hits on me and I find her attractive I'd go for it, but I doubt that would happen cause I definetly like guys and I dont feel anything towards girls. I think people are really pushing the gay thing if theyre gonna get pissed at me for making a "gay comment". Its like racism: I can make Asian comments cause I'm asian but if white people say anything then everyone freaks out. I dont care if white people say stuff as long as it doesnt get really racist. I think ppl need to LOOSEN THE FUCK UP cause things arent as bad as they seem.

Neds in your area. [17 Apr 2005|04:39pm]

heres the thing.

Name : stephen..but you can call me purdie.
Age : 17

First things first...im scottish, and what i HATE THE MOST IS NED'S!!. For those of you that are unfamiliar with this term it stands for non-educated deliqwents and thats exactly what they are.
They are a leach on our economy, they are a virus of scottish society, they are just plain filth.
A ned can usually be identified by the fact that he is caked out in full kappa/addias gear, in pure white or blue and they talk in there own little dialect, that they have mastered to make them as intimidating as possible. Many walk around with a blade, so you try your best to stay out of there way. These people ruin the lives and communities of everyday people and they have infiltrated into the smallest of villages. In some places its advised not to go out on you own as these people roam the streets bleeding our country dry, taking part in malicious acts of destruction and violence, that can be sparked off by just making eye contact with them. What i wouldnt give to have genocide right here in glasgow, burn every last motherfucking one of them, for a chance to feel safe in your own community once again.
buts thats just my opinion...what ya to do?

3. I fucking hate seetickets.com. I swear they're trying to monopolize online ticket sales or something, and they're fucking cunts. Ticket web dont even sell mean fiddler tickets anymore, and im sure its because of these cunts. They charge ridiculous ammounts of money for 'P&P' and 'booking fees'. Earlier I was trying to book a ticket; the ticket was £11, fair enough, booking fee was £2.50 extra and postage and packaging was £1.60!? Piss off! Thats ridiculous. And to make sure they get even more cash, they only let you book one setof tickets at a time, so you have to pay p&p more than once. Absolute dickheading cuntfaces.

1. my name is Sarah
2. i'm 15
3. this is something i'm pretty annoyed about. two months ago a group of friends and i made plans to go see the pixies. i am ridiculously excited because they are one of my favorite bands, and this will be my first (legit) concert. today at school i had to get this paper filled out by my teachers saying that i'm not going to be here, blah blah blah. and in my spanish class, afterwards i sat down with my friend who isn't going. we were practicing for a poem they have to recite, and i made a crack about how while she's reciting i'm going to be sleeping in the hotel room. then she, clearly offended, goes "I COULD HAVE GONE IF I WATNED TO. I WAS INVITED YOU KNOW." which is utter bullshit. but i didn't care, i just wouldn't talk to her about it anymore.

a little while ago, i was having a nice little IM conversation with one of the people who ARE going. she is, by the way, best friends with the girl i spoke about above. she IMed ME first and said "oh my god, pixies tomorrow!! i am so excited!" and i said, "me too" and we had a lovely chat. she put up an away message and came back, only to bombard me with this crock of shit:

my friend (8:51:42 PM): okay i need to be the one to tell you. you need to basically NOTtak abo the concert in school, only amongst anna, inga, julie or myself. its making people really angry, and feeling left out. and dont talk about it with me in groups, plus i dont want us to talk about it anymore realy, im pretty talked out, plus i dont want to TALK abou tit so much and it end up disapointing me
my friend (8:51:47 PM): okay thast all

first of all, how fucking dare she speak to me like that. if there is one thing i hate, it's being treated like a child. being told what to do by people who are no better or wiser than i. she could have easily just said "yea, could you keep quiet about the concert? it's making so and so mad." but she didn't. she fucking scolded me like i'm a fucking five year-old. i informed her of this and her defense was "WELL IT IS PISSING THEM OFF." as if that hadn't already been fucking established.

then, why would she lay this on me the night before the concert? as of 1:10pm tomorrow it isn't even going to be fucking relevant anymore because we'll have LEFT FOR THE CONCERT. SO IT WILL BE DONE. OVER. now i'm going to be annoyed with her tomorrow. it's going to take so much energy to not be pissed at her and let it ruin my fucking time.

and why couldn't the girl just tell me herself? i'm really not a particularly unapproachable person. it wouldn't have been that fucking hard to just say "could you not talk about it, i feel kind of left out." ADDEED ONTO the fucking fact that she said that stuff in spanish so i already knew not to talk to her about it.

i kind of want to call her and ask her what the fuck her problem is. but i don't want to create more drama and wreck the experience tomorrow. i'll just steer clear of her and her stupid attitude.

1)Baby Short Legs
3)I FUCKING HATE people who complain in Mcdonald's. They're always totally pikey, it's clearly the best place they've ever eaten in.
If their food is late or a bit cold, they fucking go into one at the retarded guy working behind the counter, as if he's gonna make it better. IT'S FUCKING MCDONALD'S. The food is going to be shit. It will probably take too long to get to you. It WILL be cold. It's not a 5 star restaurant, it's a fucking take away. But these people always shout loud enough so everyone can hear them, if they can over the screams of said complainer's filthy child. If I'm queuing next to them I want to hold their stupid face on the burger fryer.

3. What is it with traffic on major expressways? I'm stuck in two hours of it to get to work! I think "Oh, maybe there is some horrific accident or a major crisis has to be averted" but NO! I'll get to some random point in the road and the bumper-to-bumper stress will just disappear for a while. Later on I'll realize that they were all stopping to stare at some guy walking b/c his car broke down. What the hell people?!

Rant: Stupid white-van men

Today i was waiting to cross the road which was not very easy because there was so much traffic, so then this man in a white van lets me cross and i think "thats a nice thing to do" and just as i am walking down the road he hoots his stupid horn and gives me a disgusting 'alright love wink wink' kind of look.

Well, if the only way i am going to be able to cross the road is if greasy men let me because i am wearing a skirt or something. And its not even if its a really short skirt, i wearing tights.

Urgh, just annoyed me.

Since Cassie pointed out that actually not a whole lot of ranting has been done for a while, i will start the ball rolling.

Facial Hair -
Why? What is the point of facial hair, im not opposed to a bit of designer stubble here and there but a moustache or beard, it just doesn't look attractive. I have never actually seen a single person who can pull off a beard, not one. And blonde facial hair as well, like that boy - Nicola knows the one im talking about, the one who wandered off when we visited the Roy Lichenstein exhibition and the V&A gallery. Don't even get me started on that. Plus, if you own a car, a single moustache costs you roughly £5.00 in petrol every year, £5.00 to drive a MOUSTACHE!!!! Stupidity at the highest level.

Your Mod,

my rant: prententious artists

It is sooo annoying when artists think their work is a 'revolutionary piece' or 'breaking the rules' when really all it is is shit in fancy dress. Also when artists say their work symbolises stuff that has nothing to do with the actual piece or they just use artistic licence to get away with putting in no effort what so ever. I don't like the artist we have got for our project thing mainly because all the stuff she does is really boring and unamaginative plus it is mostly based on those rip-off mobiles from habitat.

Weekly Rant #2 [22 May 2004|08:46pm]

[ mood | sad ]

Merida has not done a weekly rant so I will.
This weeks weekly rant is: being let down.
I hate being let down. The first problem with it is you always seem to come out thinking it was YOUR fault though it is plainly obvious it has nothing to do with you. When ever I get let down I start thinking I think to highly of people or I'm just a bad person. I don't think I'm a bad person now though, I think I'm a good person. Sadly all everyone will probably let me down... WHich sucks and hopefully is NOT true. This was a strange rant...

Peace and Love
Your always angry moderator

My rant for today: makeup.

Its supposed to make you look better but more often than not you end up looking like a big orange clown! how come you can never find make-up that acutally works or makes you look nice.And eyeliner,why does it always go blunt or flakey or broken when you need it the most! Its also annoying how people at our school put foundation on their lips.Itlooks hideous and like you are the creature with no lips, eurgh. No normal person can apply makeup without any glitches apart from celebrities and models. And when you skin does look perfect with it on you take it off and it has made you become all spotty.

It's the first EVER weekly rant. Merida was meant to be doing it yesturday but she didn't for one reason or another. So this weeks topic of ranting is.......... CATS.
Am I the only person that hates cats? Seriously they are the most grotesque creatues ever. I can understand having a dog, they love you but cats just go out and kill a few guinea pigs, birds and frogs then come back eat some terrible smellling food then go out and kill some more inocent cute critters. Now kittens are cute for the first week or something then they just turn into evil biting machienes! WHAT IS THE POINT???
That web site just proves how ANNOYING and PATHETIC cats are. Really what is the point? Just get a dog... or even better a guinea pig.

My rant for today ... brothers , they are such a pain . they constantly call you fat and then when you lose weight they say you dont eat or your too skinny AND then the next day call you fat again . They always get their own way , like getting to watch what they want on the telly or whats for dinner. They get to stay out later than you even though theres like 18 months age gap and get to do more when they were your age .
when no ones home they expect you to make the dinner or they burn it and blame it on you . they never respect your privacy ever and push you round 24/7. spose you'll all tell me that my brothers a breeze but today he has just got up my nose .

Name: Elle
Age: 13
I want to rant about sats cos theyre not important to anyone.. ever.. at all, and they stress everyone out pointlessly and when you ask a teacher how theyre important they dont give a proper answer because theyre not important, and the questions are stupid because we havent even learnt them.. and when you come into the exam late and the teachers say we'll just wait for elle to take her seat and everyone looks at you for ages when you try to find your seat and you nearly fall over on the way and its really embarassing and the dumbass behind you has a rattly pen through ALL the exams and it rattles all the time ... and when youre in maths and its 10 seconds from the end and THEN you remember how to work out ratios and then she says pens down and everyones writing quickly but the bitch examiner womans looking at you so you cant put the answer down and AAAAAH...
