WHAT'S YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE?

By definition, a guilty pleasure is something somebody enjoys despite it being seen as something negative by majority of the world.

I have a lot of those, and as much as I don't want to write it down here, I really don't have anything much to put here. I have not forgotten about the rest of the films that I like. It will be posted soon, but I don't want to write it so close together because there's a lot, and it would seem like I'm a loser with nothing productive to do with my life.

So going back to the topic at hand, yeah this entry is dedicated to my guilty pleasures and I'll start with the obvious...


  • DRAMEDY SHOWS: No, not the Philippine telenovelas... US Dramedy shows like Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, and even Brothers & Sisters. I liked to be touched sometimes, and alot of the storyarcs being put out by these series actually tug some emotional strings in me. Plus, it doesn't hurt that all of these shows are also very funny. It's not dragging like most of the Filipino series, and you actually learn something by watching it. It also doesn't hurt that some of the quotes I forward came from lines uttered by some of these unforgettable characters.

  • GOSSIP: Admit it, guys gossip alot. It's just not as obvious as when girls do it. What's funny, is that sometimes during our drinking sessions with my housemates and friends back then, I find myself hearing about the latest intrigues from local showbiz talk shows. It's been a year since I left the company, and until now I am updated with the people that I left. Honestly speaking though, I'm sort of happy in hearing that the program's not doing as well as when I was it's Supervisor. It's sort of mean, and I'm disappointed that there are issues that's much worse than the worst period during my term.

  • PORN: By now, I've already outgrown the period of buying magazines and videos on a regular monthly basis, and I've actually thrown 99% of my collection. But hey, I'm single and I'm a guy. Enough should have been said already. I'm not going to be a hypocrite to say I don't enjoy these sites, videos or reading materials anymore because I do. But I realize that doing it with a live person is so much better than just using your imagination. Much better.

  • VIOLENCE: Not the real thing, but the virtual kind of violence. My favorite game right now is Gran Theft Auto IV, and if you've seen how I kill bystanders, you'll never see me in the same light ever again. I love shooting people in the head. Stabbing them even if they're already dead. Running them over until cops catch me. I think I have anger management issues. I usually let my anger out on those virtual people. It's a good outlet. God knows what I'd do if I find out where my dad hides his gun. For now, I'm content with video games and torturing ants.

That's all that I can think of. I'm sure there are more, but my head's starting to ache looking at the monitor.

What's your guilty pleasure?
