Weird title huh? Okay, let me explain. There are some things that I just can't stand and yet somehow I am also drawn to and then feel ridiculous but....... This happens more with music and movies I suppose than with anything else so let me give you an example.

In general, I hate Musicals. There are a few I truly enjoy, but they are few and far between. There are some that are just so bad that I can't believe anyone actually wrote the damn things. A case in point? "Lil Abner." First, the thing is based on the strip by Al Capp, a bigoted, racist, broke-dick, asshole of the first order. The musical version is without a doubt one of the biggest pieces of crap ever to have film wasted on it. It sucks. It bites. It's complete trash. And yet.............here comes the part the thread is about...........I can't resist watching it...at least bits and pieces even now. It was on yesterday and I watched long enough to have the dumbest-ass song in the entire score be performed..... "Jubilation T. Cornpone" ....Stubby Kaye and a cast of bad dancers in bad costumes doing their best to perpetuate the "Hillbilly" mystique.

Why do I do this? Does anyone else do this or have this problem?

I need to spend some time at the NYCFTTS............
