IJAM: My Guilty Pleasures.

Food-related:
  • Peanut Butter
  • Pad Thai

Media-related:
  • Yahoo!Answers
  • What Not To Wear
  • The song "Just a Dream, " because it makes me think of Inception.

...so, let's hear yours.

Why would you ever feel guilty about loving peanut butter or pad thai?

Oh My
I see no reason to feel any guilt over the things I enjoy. The closest to this I suppose I get is occasionally feeling fat when I eat fast food.

This is my guilty pleasure.

Oh who am I kidding I feel no guilt over this.

Actually now that I listen to it again the T-Pain verse is pretty guilt-inducing. "Teddy Pender-ass" indeed.

Slash fic. But never Yaoi style and only when it makes any sort of sense. Like, none of that Harry Potter slash. I'm just recovering from an Inception binge, now I've moved on BBC Sherlock. Cuddly little John Watson with his big nose and tall Sherlock with his eyes and his cheekbones.

Also, sometimes I'll put in Mad Men for the single purpose of pleasuring myself to Christina Hendricks. Too Much Information, I know.

Tsundere pet.
Food: Smoked almonds; too much fat and salt, especially if you eat them by the canful. Also, anything from the Chinese BBQ place downtown. Fatty pork with extra pork fat, yummy!

Media: Yaoi. Specifically, Ukes. Mmmm, cuddly ukes. grin Also, in the "why do I like this, again?" department, Ai Ore! Love Me!. It's at best uneven and usually pretty terrible, but I keep reading it in the faint hope it will suddenly start playing the premise straight and/or get better jokes.

Calling someone a pedant is an automatic Insult Backfire. Real pedants will be flattered.

Kink memes.

I usually avoid the ones that are pure porn, though.

Also, the YMCA song.

Transformers 4?!
  • Eurovision Song Contest...am not even European (To be fair, some of their acts are actually quite good, and when you see people like Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj ruling the charts, the European campy style isn't that far from the current music reality as it was in the past)

  • The Degrassi franchise...My G-d, that show is addictive

  • I'm a little too old to watch Don Bluth movies and still enjoying them, probably more than I did when I was a kid, and I know: I don't believe in the Animation Age Ghetto, but Don Bluth is usually a little "cornier" than other great authors I admire (like Ralph Bakshi or Tex Avery)

Professional Nerd
Vampire Hunter D novels.

D is such an over-the-top ridiculous Gary Stu that it goes from terrible to stupid awesome. Men and women alike cannot decide if they are either terrified of him or want to desperately bone him. His sword strikes are faster than lasers. People get lightheaded from making eye contact with him for too long. Light slows down in his presence because he is just that awe-inspiring. Horses go faster simply because he is the one riding them. Everything any human/vampire/dhampyr can do, he can do better. He is so beautiful that he once distracted a nonsentient targeting computer with his sexiness. Absolutely none of this is an exaggeration.

It is so fucking magical and I love all of it.

Food-wise... these chocolate caramel biscuits I am currently eating. And McDonald's apple pies, although I rarely have them.

Media wise, I don't think I have anything I'm guilty about liking.
Be not afraid...
Eternally dreaming...
In terms of music, Six Feet Under, mainly because it's so simple and Chris Barnes' screams now sound ridiculously funny, but I listen to it as comfort music whenever I get pissed off at my next guilty pleasure...

MLP and its fandom. In terms of guilty pleasure, I put it as 10% like it and 90% hate/don't care mainly because of my situation in Canada, which I feel I don't need to explain anymore, mostly ignored by the vast masses of fans. Just the thought of me even watching it makes me a self-loather.

Food-wise: Eating powdered milk raw, like when I was 10. It's degrading and childish, but it tastes so good :3

Anime. Beyond that, it's either not a pleasure, not guilty (this would include most of the shit I enjoy for its So Bad, It's Good qualities), or not something I'd bother to mention.

I'd like to hate Katy Perry. I really would. But I just...can't.

And it's not a "guilty" pleasure, but many people are surprised when they hear I like Lupe Fiasco.

What do you fear?
Responsible adult
Music:
  • "You Don't Know You're Beautiful"
  • "Super Bass" (I didn't like it at first, but the dumb thing grew on me)
  • Anything by Ke$ha. Anything. I will totally sing along with Tik Tok if it comes on and not feel bad AT ALL.

Movies:
  • The Swan Princess (it's super cute and has Steven Wright as a turtle!)
  • Brother Bear (I love the music and the animation is beautiful, and that's enough for me to watch it like once a year at least)
  • Arashi No Yoru Ni (I maintain that it's a beautiful movie, and a wonderfully done story of friendship, but whenever I try to explain it to someone who's never seen it before, they just look at me funny.)
  • The Princess Diaries (I think it's a hilarious movie, and no one will convince me otherwise. Especially all the faces Anne Hathaway pulls... and it IS hard to hate a movie that made Anne Hathaway a star.)

Books
  • Erec Rex (Cheesy Harry Potter-inspired book product... but gah I can't help but love 'em, such a good balance of whimsy and nightmare fuel)
  • Falcon Quinn (I love the character writing SO MUCH, even if the wackiness sometimes feels forced)
  • Tolkein-ripoff swords 'n' sorcery of all shades, especially when dragons are involved

Food
  • Pizza from the restaurant chain BJ's. They stuff it full of so much cheese and stuff, it's probably way worse than you for normal pizza. But SO GORRAM GOOD.
  • Panda Express'... anything, really, but especially orange chicken since that doesn't even pretend to have vegetables in it, unlike my other favorite, Beijing beef.
  • Cadbury creme eggs, not because they're not good but because they're so very bad for you.

Videogames:
  • Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. It's not the game aspect that makes it guilty (since it's generally agreed to be a pretty well-designed game), it's the tiny plastic DLC that makes it such a shameful love.
    • Speaking of Spyro, The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon. I don't even like the other two games in that trilogy! Just this one!
  • El Shaddai (what makes this a guilty pleasure is that fully a third of my love for it is the fanservice aspects)
  • Vexx (It's not a VERY guilty pleasure, but it seems a lot of critics didn't like this game)

What do you think she's confused about?
Some Skrillex songs, Gratuitous English, and sometimes Miku Miku Dance videos.
Euo will do!
Milo straight out the tin. Or, if I'm having to share the tin with others, using a spoon. OK... several spoons. I should be grown up enough by this point to resist the stuff. But, noooooooo. I'll probably disgust people in the old folks home with this. [lol]

Kuroshitsuji. I usually hate any given Marty Stu. Usually. And, if that is actually a shonen, I'm a monkey's aunt.
