Question the 15th of March:  What is your (family friendly) guilty pleasure?

 

I apparently have a deeper affection for animated movies than many of my friends do.

 

Don't feel guilty about that. Animated movies have really grown in terms of the awesomeness of their stories.

 

And seriously, with all the CGI in movies nowadays, most "live action" movies are mostly animated too ::P:

 

 

Yeah, calling it a guilty pleasure is a bit much, but it was the only thing I could really think of to answer the question.

 

"Why is your Netflix queue all horror films and Disney animation?"  :lol:

My love of the pop-princess-mashed-with-guest-rapper genre. see: Katy Perry w/ Snoop Dogg or Juicy J, Taylor Swift w/ Kendrick Lamar, etc., etc.

 

Come to think of it, my entire Spotify recent played list...

Sizzlers. They're a super-processed skinless meat product that bear a passing resemblance to actual sausages, and are sometimes filled with a vaguely cheese-like substance.

They're certainly bad for you and probably devoid of any real nutritional value, but sometimes I've just got to have them.

Like many of the folks here, I don't think I have any. I agree very strongly with the sentiments Dave Grohl expressed. (Very NSFW language. It's Dave Grohl. He swears a lot.)

 

 

Might sound very strange, but my guilty pleasure is Alone Time. No kids. No co-workers. No family... no one else around. Just me able to do what I want to do, be it at home or work or otherwise. Being able to spend time on me and my interests or focus on my work without interference or whining or interruptions that completely distract me from my concentration. Let me do what I want and focus on that and get it done then I'll spend time with you. I don't get that much at all.

I get this 1000%. I tend to get a bit of alone time randomly, but my poor wife hasn't had any for a couple months now. Every single time she's tried to have an alone day - with the exception of this past Friday, most of which was spent running errands - something has come up and either me or the kids (or all of us) have ended up at home. Snow days, sick days, holidays, whatever. I've even rearranged days off and work-from-home days to avoid being here when she's trying to have a day to herself and it keeps not working out. :down:

People, never feel guilty about needing alone time. For those of use who are more introverted, it's the only way to recharge!

For ambiverts like me, too. Folks who have met me don't ever believe I have an introverted side :)

Drives my fiancee nuts that I can't filter or otherwise organize my Amazon Watchlist. So all the stuff I want to watch with her is mashed in there with all the crap I like to watch, it's one of the places we have the least overlap in taste. She just can't understand why Jean Rollin is awesome ("Seriously, 'Nude for Satan'?" :D)

Guilty pleasures include selected cartoons and really bad movies.

Well, it used to be art when I was a kid, but that's kind of expected of me now around here, bein' an art forum and all! ^_^

 

It's not so much "guilty" as "silly" -

I don't follow many feminine stereotypes at all, but I listen to all kinds of music, including pop like Taylor Swift. I'm in a very stable relationship, her music gives me the drama I never knew I needed! I don't listen to the radio, so I'm mostly immune to overplayed stuff like her music.

 

I also really love watching the animated* Tinkerbell movies. I DON'T KNOW WHY. They're all just so cute and amazingly animated, and all the fairies have their own unique talents that let them give to the community as a whole, although the movies themselves aren't actually that great unless you watch them with the wonder of a 5 year old :lol:

 

Edit: * Animated movies are my favorite, but the Tink ones are usually left out when I list what I watch, haha.

 

Edit edit: Now I want to do a Disney Fairies themed diorama!! *Rushes off, mumbling about mushrooms and tree bark*

 

Edit edit edit: For real though, teeny fairies that happen to be 32mm in our world....

Mine is *girl pop*. Katy Perry, Keshisa, Taylor Swift. I enjoy pop music more than my 26 year old daughter.

Yeah, girl pop is another guilty pleasure of mine...I own every Lady Gaga album, and a couple tracks by Katy Perry...

 

My Music collection is...eclectic...

Guilty pleasure? Hmmm... definitely bad pop music. As well as some really corny anime things that I used to obsess over as a middle schooler. I still sorta like it... sorta...

I admit to loving Hong Kong martial arts movies from the 70s and 80s (and 90s and 00s and ... ). So much fun. The rest of my household doesn't care for them, but I get my fill when I can.

Twinkies,  But I only feel guilty when my wife is on a diet and so I do hide them  or sneak them late at night to get rid of the evidence..

 

Other than that I don't feel guilty..  and you should just hum right along with me Comrade..

Not really much embarrassed by what I like.

 

The closest might be early-60s folk (Kingston Trio, New Christy Minstrels, Brothers Four). A little slick and heavily produced, but fun to listen to.
