The 'Overdone' thread

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by bassteban, Feb 16, 2006.

  1. Overdone: Flames- as in flame paint jobs, flame tattoos, flame aftermarket truck grills, etc. What do YOU consider to be entirely overdone?
    BTW, I put this in misc as I'm hoping it will, at some point, have some truly miscelleneous content.:D
  2. 1--Guitar players (they're EVERYWHERE)

    2--Movie Remakes. I think about 3/4 of the movies made in '05 were remakes of older stuff, and '06 looks to be even worse. Just leave the classics alone!!

    (awesome idea for a thread BTW)

    Prog rock: Yes, yes, I can see you are quite a good music player. You must be very talented to write music so dull and pedantic.

    No, I have no clue how good Yes is. Oh please tell me more, tell me about it all night! Oh, but don't forget about Rush!

  4. Keep it comin', people!:hyper: +1 on the movie remakes.:spit:But I think it's been going on since LOOOONG before '05(nothing specific comes to mind, but I have felt this way for awhile now).
  5. Tribal designs. Just stop it already.

    Barbwire tattoos. Ditto.

    Sun and Moon tattoos. Ditto.

    Tramp stamps. Ditto.
  6. Calvin peeing on things. Stop.

    No Fear stuff. I think this has almost died.

    Cowbell skit references. Stop.

    Bass: Pearloid pickguards. Sorry gang, I've yet to see a bass where black or white pearl tops solid white or black. Just my view.

    Airplanes: The long-assed safety briefing. The restriction on using personal electronics during the first and last ten minutes of a flight. C'mon...even ipods?

    Food: Lowfat hype. Studies show people who eat lowfat foods aren't healthier. It takes a more concerted effort.

    Music: Breathy boys and girl popstars swallowing or twisting their r's. Speak English, dammit!

    Pets: Cheap dog treats. Most are horribly unhealthy or worse, fragment into foreign bodies and can get impacted in the digestive system.
