Subject: RE: BS: ThingsYouHateThatYouLoveButHate
Oh I'm drawn to many things I really hate. Advertising. Porn is fascinatingly terrible--I loved the movie Boogie Nights. Really terrible songs. Disney. Awful movies are interesting just in the fact they got made, nobody came to their senses and quit. Old cheesy special effects are wonderfully terrible, like the camera entering a scene on a plane from outside the window--I love that. Old war propaganda. Steven Segal is amazing. Musicals in general are pretty bad, but On the 20th Century is really pretty good, if you ever get to see it. Swan Lake is thrillingly awful sometimes--I saw it once when they dragged out a prop swan like a shopping cart with a bad wheel. It was delightful! Any stage theatre that doesn't know when to quit with props and effects and elaborate sets, which sometimes marvelously conflict with descriptions in the script. I used to love an acrylic painting show with a swedish lady doing these horrible pictures--she knew exactly one technique, and was never disappointed by it, and I found her uniform happiness and perpetual satisfaction perversly erotic. Oooh--I remembered an old rat-pack Sammy Davis joke the other day that was so bad, in such horrible taste, and wasn't even a joke, anyway, an awful pseudo-joke, it gave me shivers.
