A terrible movie that has become a phenomenon. The reason why is because parents are too protective and sheltering of their kids nowadays, and middle school kids and anyone younger is curious and asking questions about what high school is like. Instead of using more realistic movies based on high school life like Fast Times At Ridgemont High or Superbad, they use this shit as an example. This movie makes them super happy and optimistic, they become obsessed with it, which has made it probably the most overrated and overmarketed movies of all time.
This is probably one of the main reasons why High School Freshmen have a tendency to act so retarded, because they are convinced that High School is like some 'fairy tale musical'. High School students should(hopefully) know better.
Anyone over the age of 14 who likes this movie should be slapped.
12 year old: OMG!!!! I can't wait for high school now that i've just watched High School Musical!!!! There won't be any labels, all the cliques and crowds will live in harmony, I can share my secrets and no one will humiliate me, it will be just like a happy fairy tale. =D
The most misleading shit ever.
One of the best channels on TV, until 2000/2001 when most of the classic and good shows were cancelled, thrust into reruns and replaced with mediocre shows, then around 2004 went downhill even further when the classic shows weren't shown as reruns anymore, and the new new shows went from mediocre to just straight up crap.
Examples of the lost magic and current crapiness of Nickelodeon:
All That: Originally very funny and more mature, then became a dull kiddy show before it was cancelled.
The classic Rocko's Modern Life which was hilarious and amazing has been replaced with the annoying and repititive Spongebob Squarepants.
Even shows in the new generation of Nick which were actually cool like My Life As A Teenage Robot, received good reviews and good ratings were cancelled. That seems to be a trend in Nick TV shows, cancel the good shows but keep the bullshit on.
A most awful place indeed.
Usually when you first create one, it will consume your life, and everything you post and do and your first pics will make you look incredibly stupid, because more than likely you'll probably be trying too hard to look cool. Some people outgrow this phase, some don't unfortunately.
Make sure you use good grammar, try to sound as smart as possible, don't complain about anything and don't post bulletins about random things because most of the people there suck and take dumb things like the internet too seriously and will attack you for the smallest things.
People there really do suck. Some people are really uptight and stuck up and will say they get annoyed at the things you post on bulletins or in groups and will get on your case and/or delete you from their friend list, which is really silly because people have the freedom to post whatever they want, and if someone's bulletins or posts in a group are bothering you so bad, why not just simply ignore them? No one said you had to read them.
Some people are really two faced and they'll act really cool in real life, but they'll become a total asshole on MySpace or vice versa.
Then there's the really conceited and arrogant pricks who act like they're totally the shit and think they're better than everyone else and take a bunch of pictures of themselves shirtless(guys) or in very revealing clothing(girls).
And then you have stupid emo and scene kids who act really depressed, pathetic and pretend to have problems.
Oh, and I almost forgot, the wiggers, posers and wanabe gangstas who use a bunch of stupid slang terms they learned from mainstream rap videos as well as try to create new ones by mispelling words on purpose, acting like they are really tough and have it really bad in the projects or a rough neighborhood even though there aren't a lot of people who live in those kinda places that have computers and can afford expensive hip hop stuff like Rocawear and Sean John.
It's also probably one of the most ironic places ever, because usually the people who are called stupid or retarded are probably the smartest people there, because they have the common sense required to ignore stupid bulletins and threads in public forums instead of getting on the case of people who post them. While the people who 'think' they're smart and call those people idiots are the real idiots because they obviously take it too seriously.
Then you have Myspace Prostitution. Instead of going out in public, dressed really slutty and standing at street corners, they make profiles on MySpace, take pictures of themselves dressed like hookers and use the myspace groups and bulletin boards as their 'corner'.
So yeah. MySpace really isn't that great.
Example 1: When I first created a MySpace, I stayed on it for 16 hours a day, and pretended to be a gangsta thinking it was totally cool.
I was such a fucking loser
A:Whatz up my homiez? Man the town I live in sucks so bad. I know this shit is random.
B: I'm deleting you from my friend list because you are a fucking idiot for posting this random bulletin that I could've easily ignored but I didn't because I suck so bad, for complaining about something, not like it should matter to me because it's your problem and not mine and for using some slang because I'm so uptight and think that anyone who uses slang is an idiot and can't speak proper english.
Conceited Prick: I'm the shit! I'm the coolest person in the world because I have these nice ab muscles and 10,000 friends on MySpace and that automatically makes me better than everyone else especially YOU. =D
Emo/Scene Kid: My life is so terrible. I don't have a car, but most of my friends have one. I suck because my best friend has a bf/gf and I don't. I'm supposed to be really depressed and suck at life because some kids were mean to me in Elementary school. I should've gotten over that years ago, but I didn't, so I decided to start acting like a idiot thinking someone will feel sorry for me.
Wigger/Poserthug: YO, whatz up my ppl! I juz saw that new Yung Jocky joint on MTV. Hold Upz! Is you talkin' shit chuzz? Come to my rough ass block, just because I wear $120.00 Nikes, $60 sean john t-shirts, live in a nice azz subrb and have my own $48,000 custom Lincoln Navigator don't mean I iz a fake. Say tha shit to mi face chuzz and sie wat gonn happen bitoch.
Intelligent MySpace user: I post random bulletins and complain sometimes, and people call me stupid just for that. I don't see why. It shouldn't really matter, I have the right to post whatever I want and so does everyone else.
Stupid MySpace user that thinks they're smart: You are complaining about something! YOU ARE A FUCKING IDIOT!!!!! Stop posting those dumb bulletins, they are annoying me, don't ask me how they are, it doesn't make sense, but your random bulletins are annoying me you little dumbass.
Final example: Hey boys. Come look at these sexy pics on my profile. If you like them, hit me up, maybe we can get together one night and I'll give you an STD. =]
MySpace is a shithole.
