Don’t Call it a Comeback

I haven’t posted anything on here in months (not since November 2011, to be exact), but I’m back, bitches!

Things have been crazy busy for a while now, but now that I’m slowly getting back to having no life, I’m hoping I can make posting a regular thing again.

I’m going to do a Survivor recap tomorrow, but to tide you over in the meantime, here’s the video for BIGBANG’s new single, “Fantastic Baby”!  I really can’t stop staring at it.  I can’t decide who I like more: the guy with the Hot Topic meets Kate Gosselin hair, or the guy who looks like his head got stuck in a cotton candy machine.  Flawless!

Angst is so out.

All I’m hearing about today is the Bruins winning the Stanley Cup last night.  I really am not much of a sports person (and I really know NOTHING about hockey) but I’m happy that so many people around me are excited and talking about it.  That kind of happiness is contagious, and I feel myself getting a bit excited too.  It’s fun, even though deep down I have zero interest in any of it.

So my Facebook news feed has been flooded with Bruins-themed updates.  That’s to be expected and I really don’t mind.  What bugs me, though, are all the posts I’m seeing from people who are angry that the Bruins won.  And not because they’re Vancouver fans, or for any other logical reason.  It’s just because they don’t like hearing about it. I’ve seen almost as many Facebook posts about being sick of hearing about the Bruins as I’ve seen posts about the thrill of the victory.

I really just don’t understand why you’d get so angry about other people’s happiness that you need to share these feelings publicly.  I think some of these people are just grouchy assholes.  But I think a lot of them think it makes them cool if they hate something that everyone else likes.  It’s not lame to get excited about something.  Shouldn’t we have gotten over all of these things in early high school?  People like what they like and they have a right to celebrate their happiness, whether it’s about a Bruins game or a sale on Lisa Frank folders at Staples.

Newsflash:  Raining on people’s parade doesn’t make you cooler or better than anyone.  It just makes you look like a childish dick.

Now, in the same vein, I can understand why people are posting angry messages that they got woken up at midnight on a week night by a screaming mob of drunk revelers outside their window.  That makes sense.

But don’t be angry just because everyone else is happy.  That’s just silly.  If seeing these Bruins-related posts on Facebook bothers you that much, then you need to reevaluate your life.
