Your childhood years are supposed to be the best of your life. You don’t have to worry about any adult concerns like bills, relationships, the ever present threat of nuclear annihilation, jobs etc, instead children are meant to be carefree and happy. Well, for the most part. I’m sure I speak for many of you when I say that there were some parts of my childhood that were downright terrifying. Whether they be TV shows aimed at my age group or something totally inappropriate I stumbled upon one night, these are the top ten works of fiction that scared me as a child and have continued to linger with me to this day.
Anyone who knows me really well knows that I’m capable of extreme bitterness and hatred as well as love and generosity, anyone who disagrees obviously only knows me well enough to have experienced one of these emotions… I’ve been bored recently so I figure, what the hell, I’ll write about the things I hate and love the most. Tonight I’m gonna look at the top 10 things I despise beyond anything else. I highly doubt that everybody will agree with everything on here and some of you may be offended so I’m warning you now. Also there will be swearing, these are things and people that I just loathe and it’s unheard of for me to talk about most of them without bursting into a torrent of profanity. So without further ado, here are the things that I hate most in the world.
I’m a very nostalgic person and now that I’m at university I find myself constantly looking back on the fantastic times I had at Sixth Form, the amazing friends I made and the life lessons I learned (God I sound like Mary Alice Young from Desperate Housewives…) The point is that I, as most people who know me well will attest, adore Classical mythology and history. I studied it at A level, my bookshelves are lined with Tacitus and Suetonius and I was raised on Greek mythology, so I have decided to honour the Classical Greek religion by listing my top 12 (because of the 12 Olympians) Greek myths, not only as a tribute to Classical Greece but also as a little trip down nostalgia lane for me. Remember that this list in entirely subjective and chances are you may not feel the same.
Right, i’m now going to confess a personal geekyness. I love the ancient Greek religion. I really do! They have such great stories, a detailed map of there underworld and some of the best gods of any religion, including the Roman religion as it just copied (badly) this one. They have some of the best hero’s, heroins and monsters and i will now honor my love of there gods with this post of my top favorite 20. Continue reading “Ancient Greek Gods”
My lists are still quite popular, so once again, here I am, writing one. This time, I thought I’d write up about my Top 50 Actors. Just to clarify, all of the following people are ACTORS, and as such, are MALE and from TV, film, game or radio. Anyone who has a go at me for not having any women on my list, please wait until I have a chance to write my Top 5o Actresses list. Thank you and enjoy!
A while back, Doug Walker posted a video detailing the ten movies he likes but everybody else hates and, naturally, it was a great video and it led to waves of similar lists coming from all corners of the internet. I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon and present to you the top ten movies that I like, some I love and others I just think are ok but all have one thing in common. Most people I talk to about these films have the same views as many critics, they don’t like them. I can’t understand it and, like Doug, I am going to present to you my top ten, each detailing why I like them and others hate them, but also critiquing them fairly. Remember, none of these are perfect movies; in fact few of them are barely good. Obviously this is subjective, hell that’s the point, so don’t get too angry if you see a film you despise, and for some of you I can guarantee you will. Not much more to say really…probably better start.
What’s this? A list? A list written by That Guy? Yes. It is. Here are my Top 20 Driving Songs… No. I don’t drive… This is a prospective list…
