Re: Do you think House Music is Boring?

I've never had a problem being colossally rude to people if their behavior warrants it, although thankfully I haven't had reason to do so for a long time.

So how about it? Like most sites dedicated to just about anything, we spent plenty of time bitching. But what about some recent movies that you felt were money well spent? My picks for the 2009-ish season (since Japan's as always a few months behind) would be as follows: UP : Yeah, I'll admit it. I ...

I used DVD boxsets (and plenty of internet downloads) to steer my wife away from Japanese TV. My original intention was actually just to share some cool TV shows she didn't know about...but the final benefit of her watching less Japanese TV was definitely a huge bonus. She already liked ER, so one ...

Agreed. I honestly can't think of a less admirable job. And I've never seen a fast food shop that wasn't hiring, so no-one has an excuse either, imo.

Newswipe Charlie Brooker rips on current events and the media machine in general. Great stuff.
