  1. I’m a fan of the “everything wrong” series, but they have gone too far, too far. There is nothing wrong with Goonies! Nothing! haha

    • Still though, it’s great one of them got work in 300 years later (check out the Honest Trailer for that movie to see what I mean).

      • Baby Ruth?! haha

        • My guess is that my guess is sufficient.

  2. Hmm. That Idiot’s Guide video was pretty dumb.

    As a smart person myself, my fave genre of all time is metal, I always answer with “rock” as a generic answer rather than go into the “Well, I’m a fan of Strapping Young Lad, Metallica, Static-X” etc etc that I would with a fellow metalhead.

    In fact, I’d say not a single thing in that video was correct in any way, it’s all just assumption based on someone who in my opinion seems to lack knowledge and just uses guesswork.

    • You’re too smart. You’ve just taken all the fun out of that video. ;)

    • Amen to that. And yeah, that Idiot’s guide video was completely off.

      I used to be a bigtime metalhead. Now, I listen to everything from Coltrane to Rachmaninov to Queen to Atheist, etc.

      Except for Country. Screw Country.

      Anyway, cheers to a fellow metalhead, and good choices (SYL, Metallica, & Static-X are all awesome, although not my go-tos)!

    • Yeah, that Idiot’s Guide video was completely off.

      When people ask me what I listen to, I say everything. That pisses some people off, but then they eventually realize it’s because I do listen to nearly all genres, and I’m not just a Top-40 hound or someone who doesn’t listen to anything.

      Except for Country. Screw Country.

      Cheers to a fellow metalhead! \m/

    • Why would you answer with rock, if you listen to metal? Even the dumbest of people know what metal is, rock is such a vague term. I like that you said something dumb, in the same sentence you called yourself smart lol

    • I’ve read somewhere that dumb people usually think they are smart and smart people usually think they are dumb, so…

      ;-) Just kidding Dazz. (seriously, didn’t read that anywhere, just a joke before you get pissed at me. :-P)

  3. The Google one was better than I expected.

  4. Man, that girl in the Art of Love short is super cute, lol.
