This is something that has been bugging me for awhile now.
People and trends. And NO, I'm NOT talking about following trends.
Just the opposite.
I'm talking about people who refuse to have ANYTHING to do with anything that's remotely trendy JUST *because* it's trendy!!! Like if it's a TV show or movie or music group...there are lots of people out there who will automatically hate one without even giving it a chance JUST BECAUSE it's really popular.


Why not at least give it a CHANCE before blowing it off??? Who knows, you might actually [gasp] LIKE it!!!! Very often when something is popular it's because it's actually GOOD!!!!!!!! DAMN it pisses me off when someone refuses to give something a chance just 'cause it's 'trendy'. DON'T freakin' DO that, people!!!! It doesn't make you look like a level-headed makes you look like a freakin' narrow-minded SNOB!!!!!!!!! ARRRRGH!!!!!!!

I used to kinda be like that too, I have to admit. When Dawson's Creek first came out, and everyone went psycho over it, I immedeately dismissed it as something stupid and didn't bother to watch it. One day though I was at my aunt's and my sister was watching it, and I was bored and decided to give it a look.
Well, as much as I WANTED to hate it, I couldn't! It was just so GOOD!! Never mind all the little teeny-boppers that sqealed about it; the show wasn't overrated at all, imho. It really was awesome!!!
And so now, I have one more show that I like.

I don't get it. Wouldn't you rather have MORE things that you like, rather than something you HATE? If you give these things a chance, and you end up liking it, you'll have one more thing that brings you joy. If you DON'T like it, well, you didn't like it in the first place didn't lose anything.

It's a win-win situation.
