“I don’t believe in guilty pleasures, I believe you should be able to like what you like. If you a like a fucking Ke$ha song, listen to fucking Ke$ha.” — Dave Grohl
As I grow older, I find it harder to hide the things I love. I also find it harder to justify those things to other people. Yes, I like to watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians when no one’s around. Why, of course I read Tori Spelling’s books and weep over them. Yeah, I probably do have an unhealthy obsession and identification with Girls. WHAT’S IT TO YOU, WHOREBISCUIT?
Yesterday I probably would have said, “Well, it’s really just a guilty pleasure and I know it’s bad and blah, blah, fucking BLAH.” Today I say, to hell with that. I am who I am, and that’s a fangirl who fangirls about a lot of shit. Like shit that doesn’t even make sense for one entity to be equally obsessive over.
This brings on this whole other level of justification. “I mean yeah, I do love Star Wars, but I also really love crafting, and I mean I totally enjoy fashion, but I am like crazy in lust with outdoor adventuring!!!!~*”
I’m throwing that bi-polar rationalization out the window, too. I don’t have to explain why I like what I like, and I certainly don’t have to explain the complexities of the human mind, and maybe, JUST MAYBE, that’s why I like things that are on completely different ends of the Kinsey scale of fandom. I’m just tired of that judgmental, bulgy side-eye thing. Don’t judge me for what I like, bro, at least not enough to make you a dick. Be polite judge-y Southern about it.
You don’t have to love what I love. God knows I don’t love everything in your trunk o’ stuff n’ things. Let me listen to my Carly Rae Jepsen in peace while I drink warm tea out of my Simon Pegg mug.
Fandom collage anyone? No? Too late…
I’m just a Simon Pegg lovin’, Angie worshipping, comedy slave who loves fashion, the South, Star Wars, New York City, decorating, crafting, a little reality TV, and drinking my mimosas heavy on the champagne side.
It’s okay that I am a clusterfuck of different compulsions… you are too.
What are your biggest fandoms? I haven’t even scratched the surface of mine!
P.S. My fonts are really awesome now. If you’re getting a weird combo like Curlz and Times New Roman, I haven’t lost my mind. Your browser just needs a life upgrade.
