Do you have bad taste?

It's anonymous, so just admit it.

It never fails to amaze me how some of you here rave about middle of the road garbage like Big Bang Theory or Linda Rondstadt.

We're just not as superior as you. We're sorry, so sorry, we can't help it, please forgive us and understand that we try to be as cultured as you but we just can't. You must understand that we try, sometimes just breathing your rarified air is enough to dispel the deep, deep shame that we feel. Sometimes we just say "Oh fuck it, what's the use" and then we go to McDonalds.

I'm with r9. Linda Ronstadt is a wonderful performer. It's not as if she's a talent-free hip hop "artist" shrieking profanely into a microphone! She can actually SING!

I think I have excellent taste in entertainment, food, home decorating, music, and so on.

I'm sure other people disagree vehemently with my assessment.

But I don't give a fuck.

Maybe Linda RonDstadt, whoever she is, OP, is an indicator of bad taste. But Linda Ronstadt makes the most wonderful music I've ever heard.

In other words, OP, FOAD. And if you wake up, REFOAD.

I'm listening to Linda now, on iTunes shuffle. "For a Dancer" now. "My Hero" just prior to that. She is so wonderful, and OP is a spelling-challenged turdpocket.

I have wonderful taste when it comes to food, wine, clothing, etc.


My partner and I are both sci-fi fans, and we actually own a "show" house (for friends, guests, so on) and a "sci-fi" house that no one will ever see.

That decision was made after a trick said, "I can't take this fucking seriously with [life size] Yoda staring at me". (I was the top, and who the fuck cares what the bottom thinks, really?)

I'm sure some of my friends would love our arcade and pinball machines, but that would ruin the whole facade.

What do you mean you own a sci-fi house? You actually have a separate dwelling full of sci-fi stuff? Like what, besides Yoda? What do you do there? If one of you brings a trick there, is that a dealbreaker? So many questions.

We own a house (it's quite lovely). One floor is permitted for Star Trek stuff (which is my partner's thing). The other three floors are filled with Star Wars stuff.

As I said, there are pinball machines, arcade games, obviously a lot of toy memorabilia, and more life size figures than anyone would be comfortable with. There are six life size Darth Vaders from various makers, and there are a lot of props.

We brought a set designer in to set up the displays, and, as new things are added, he'll advise based on photos. We're like tasteful hoarders, but the "toy" house is kept from everyone we know.

I'll tell you what, OP. Some people have stinky taste here.

A couple months ago there was a thread about fine China when a fistfight broke out between 4 Queens, each one of them posting photos of their favorite china setting which invariably looked like some tawdry old memento from a day at Coney Island.

The fight went on for weeks.

My beautiful collection of Melmac plastic dinnerware from the 60s. It's coming back and popular again---just like Cher!

by Anonymousreply 5910/07/2013

Melmac is wonderful because it is made from Melamine plastic and formaldehyde. The formaldehyde gives your meat loaf that "extra special" flavor and all of your dinner guests will want to know your secret!--But DON'T TELL THEM! Otherwise, it wouldn't be a secret!

Come back tomorrow when we learn about Agent Orange in our canteloupe melons!

From what I have read on this site now for years, it appears that there is a good deal of undereducated, tasteless people making contributions.

I love the threads about people hosting "baked potato" parties. Really?

Or the threads where people express there ideal holiday as week at Disney. Really??

Or the threads where people tell us how they have never been to Europe (most likely do not even possess a passport). Really???

Or the threads where people discuss squalid restaurants like the Olive Garden as if this is actually gourmet food. Really????

It goes on and on, but there is an abundance of "bad taste" most certainly centered around (but not limited to) flyover types.

by Anonymousreply 6510/10/2013

There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with Olive Garden! It is genuinely delicious served Italian food, good cold endless salad and tasty breadsticks, all served to you at a good price from friendly and smiling waiting staff.

Scoff all you want.

I had a friend once me tell me that my minimalist apartment was her clue that I had bad taste.

Using neutral tones, with only accents of color, demonstrated I was "afraid of exposing my basic lack of taste, by not using more color and 'accent pieces'."

You can imagine what her apartment looks like: a very colorful, expensive junk shop, with statuettes, paperweights, ashtrays etc. on every exposed surface.

I do like some of the antique paperweight....

Paperweights. Plural. Before I get corrected.

Linda had a beautiful voice and an adventurous career. It would have been nice to see her still singing and what she might have done.
