|1.||story of the year|
A "new" pop-punk-emo that nonetheless seems to rehash sentiments, lyrics, and cliches from a million other older, better emo/indie bands.
Deep if you've got an IQ of 50 or less or are a 13 year old girl.
Original if all you listen to is Good Charlotte.
Horrible if you have ears.
<Until the Day I Die> (beginning)
As years go by
I race the clock with you
But if you die right now
You know that I'd die to
I'd die too
You remind me of the times
When I knew who I was
But still the second hand will catch us
Like it always does
We'll make the same mistakes
I'll take the fall for you
I hope you need this now
Cause I know I still do
Until the day I die
I'll spill my heart for you
I've got this store-bought way of saying I'm okay, and you've learned how to cry in total silence. We're talented and bright. We're lonely and uptight. We've found some lovely ways to disappoint, but the airport's always almost empty this time of the year, so let's go play on a baggage carousel. Set our watches forward like we're just arriving here from a past we left in a place we knew too well. (Hold on to the corners of today, and we'll fold it up to save until it's needed. Stand still. Let me scrub that brackish line that you got when soemthing rose and then receeded.)
One of these is full of cliches and platitudes and sounds like it was written by a twelve-year old. The other has fairly original lyrics. *hint* the first one is SOTY the second one is the Weakerthans
|2.||Itazura na Kiss|
A manga series from the early 90s by Kaoru Tada. It follows the love life of Kotoko Aihara (stupid girl) & Naoki Irie (genius) from confession to rejection, to marriage and beyond. The series spans many years, starting from high school, to college, and way beyond. However, the manga series ended at the worst cliffhanger possible because the author had to go and die. Whoopie fucking doo.more...
I don't give a fuck if you call it cliche, because it sure as hell can't be cliche if it's the damn series that created the damn cliches. AND unlike many shoujos, it deals with everyday relationship problems, unlike some other BS shoujo series that are unrealistic as fuck and take over 9000 fucking episodes to get even a damn hug from the opposite party. Wtf? Also, it goes past marriage and doesn't stop when the two characters get together, so you don't actually wonder if they'll break up later on. TL;DR: If you think ItaKiss is cliche, go fuck a cock or a donkey or whatever the fuck kids these days do.
The Taiwanese Drama based on the manga, It Started With A Kiss, was meh. It followed closely, but Yu Shu (Naoki) was a bigger dickwad in the drama than portrayed in the drama. ISWAK 2, though, showed Yu Shu more loveable than -his- manga counterpart in the second arc of the series. Wtf is this shit?
The 2008 anime series was fucking crack. Srsly, I was addicted to it and turned into a weeaboo faggot watching it. They cut off a lot of stuff from the manga (try cramming 23 volumes i...
Full of cliches, information downloaded off the internet, no sentence skills
Bloody hell, what is this crap, Twilight?
|4.||No Country for Old Men|
A movie (and book) about a Texas bumpkin who stumbles across $2 million, heroin and a slew of dead drug dealers in the desert. Rather than doing the civil deed of contacting authorities, the bumpkin steals the money and is subsequently chased by a silly-lookin' fella with a bad haircut. Although (we're told) the bad haircut dude kills anyone who inconveniences him, the case rule exception is morbidly obese beauty queens at trailer parks. As all of this is going on, a small town codger sheriff chats with people and occasionally investigates the case, but otherwise has little to do with the bumpkin and the bad haircut dude.
By the end, the audience has just witnessed the same allegories, cliches and plot holes of cinema in the past 60 years (although the film's apologists claim we just "didn't get it", and that the movie has a profound, cryptic meaning - which is often their own interpretation.) While "No Country" did gain a significant amount of critical/award acclaim, reception was actually much more polarized, evident by the defensive/flamebait nature of the film's defenders.
NCFOM Fanboy: I think anyone who doesn't like this film should just watch a Hollywood-produced movie with gratuitous violence, explosions, car crashes and limited character development, such as Die Hard 4 or Transformers!
COMMON SENSE MOVIEGOER: But wasn't "No Country For Old Men" also a Hollywood-produced movie with gratuitous violence, explosions, car crashes and limited character development?
NCFOM Fanboy: U just didn't understand it! Who are UR favorite directorz? I bet I know.
COMMON SENSE MOVIEGOER: Well, I liked the Coen brothers' films before they made the "No Country" BS. I'm also a fan of movies by Scorsese, Kubrick, Huston, Jarmusch, Lumet, Eastwood, Welles...
NCFOM Fanboy: HA HA HA, I knew it! Didn't the Stanley Kubrick guy direct the first and second TRANSFORMERS moviez? HA HA HA, U suck, case closed!
combining words used in more than one cliche
I'm not a rocket surgeon, you know. That was just a blip in the road. He likes co-mingling cliches.
The ramblings of politicians. The meaningless jumble of catch-phrases, buzzwords, sound bites and cliches by which politicians communicate to their followers.
The candidate's rally speech was so full of junkspeak that only his disciples understood him.
September 27, 2011 Urban Word of the Day
The ability to sense things in games, simply because of predictable, long-standing game cliches.
My gaming sense tells me that this innocuous red barrel will explode if thrown.
My gaming sense tells me that this grave will have valuable items in it if I dig it up.
My gaming sense tells me that I'll have to fight a boss in this unexpectedly cavernous room.
