7. "The fabulouse life of..." show on VH1
8. MTV of today
First off VH1 just needs to go away. All they ever have now are these stupid shows where C-List actors and unfunny comedians you've barely heard of talk about past trends and fads in our culture. Like anyone really wants to see the Sklar Brothers talk about a rubik's cube.
Totally agree with number 8. They created MTV2 just so they'd have somewhere else to play music videos, now MTV2 barely plays videos. MTV had been going downhill quite a while ago. When TRL started in the late 90's it just put them on the fast track.
Ugh, don't get me started with this weird collar thing. I was at the mall the other day and I walked past the Abercrombie store. Most people that have seen an Abercrombie know that a lot of times they'll have a couple employees near the front entrance that act as greeters, except they don't really greet you, they just stand there and act cool and hip and basically think about how great they look compared to everyone else. Anyway, the dude that happened to be at the front this time had his kick-ass big ragged cargo shorts on and a polo shirt, and he had the stupid collar up. Seriously, having a collar up should be the international sign for "Hey come punch me in the face!" Its the dumbest trend I've seen in a while.
Anyway to add to this annoying list I offer up, Abercrombie & Fitch. This store sucks. Everything in there has this worn and torn look, which is supposed to be awesome I hear. I'll admit, my favorite pair of jeans are pretty beat up, but I'm the one who broke them in. I don't need them broken in for me. And their jeans aren't just broken in, it looks like someone wore them when they fell down a rocky cliff, and when they hit the bottom, all bloody and bruised, a bear came by and took a dump on them. And then there's the music they play there, which rivals any night club in decibel level. TURN THE MUSIC DOWN!!!! Seriously, was there a study done that proved that if you play Crystal Method so loud the bass makes your chest hurt and your ears bleed that customers will buy more clothes? Granted I haven't shopped there in quite a few years but the whole snooty frat boy/sorority girl vibe that comes from that place makes me ill.
