Pet Peeves

Recommended Posts

You're referring to digipaks. I don't care for them either. Yes, they may be recyclable but they don't stand up to a lot of wear and tear. I prefer jewel cases, preferably those with a thick spine so I when I file them I can find them more easily. I don't care for the slimline cases. Nor do I care for the cardboard sleeves you mention as they cause the CDs to become easily damaged. I see more and more labels choosing this type of packaging these days which is disconcerting. We can bitch all we want to but they will continue to cut corners in order to save money. I prefer artists who actually listen to their fans when it comes to packaging and go the extra mile to provide good packaging for their CDs. Unfortunately they're few and far between.

GLAD I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE. UNFORTUNATELY 2 OF MY TOP 5 MUSICIANS (I HAVE SEVERAL CDS BY BOTH)

ARE NOW GOING WITH DIGIPAKS (HIATT & LANDRETH).

I'm not going to complain about networks that don't have commercials but when it comes to PBS, the most annoying thing are the interruptions that happen during the pledge drives. I understand they're viewer supported and I don't mind supporting them at all but I'm less apt to stay tuned into a program that is constantly being interrupted as all PBS programming is during pledge drives. As for the no commercial interruption thing, I believe a lot of folks watch the shows they want via Tivo and DVRs these days so they can pause the programs when they need a break. That is, those few that are actually still watching standard broadcast programming. A lot of viewers have found it much less expensive to watch TV via the internet. I believe the technology they use is referred to as "tethering". As I understand it, cable, and the networks as we once knew them will cease to exist in the not too distance future because people are sick and tired of rates going higher and higher through the cable companies.

YEAH. I'M TOO BROKE TO HAVE CABLE, TIVO, OR A DVR. IT'S THE BROADCAST SIGNAL OR NOTHING FOR ME-I'M LUCKY SOMEONE GAVE ME A DIGITAL TV! THE ONLY TIME THE PLEDGE DRIVES BUG ME ARE WHEN THEY ACTUALLY CHANGE THE PROGRAMMING, SO YOU MISS SOMETHING YOU WERE PLANNING TO WATCH (I NEVER GOT TO SEE THE 3RD EPISODE OF WALLANDER, WHICH SUCKS.). THOUGH THEY COULD MAKE THEM SHORTER, BECAUSE THEY REPEAT THE SAME INFO OVER & OVER (PROMOTIONAL GIFTS ETC.).

They repeat them because they're hoping to raise money. I don't have any problem with that as I am a big supporter of public television :)

Just a small request - can you not type in all caps please - feels like you're shouting :) Thanks!

I guess that's my pet peeve. Caps lock is the internet equivalent of screaming at someone.

I actually like the new paper-based CD packaging. I like the way they resemble mini-LPs. Although I agree they are a bitch to file.

Pet peeve: my mom always chooses quantity over quality when it comes to music. I was shopping for a birthday present and wanted Live at Leeds, and she was helping me look for it. She finds it, and pulls up The Who Sell Out and says "look at how many songs it has! It was way more than that other one. Why don't you get this?" Face, meet palm.

A few years back several CDs were released with this type of packaging, among them were the Stones' Exile on Main Street and Some Girls and R.E.M.'s Document. I bought the Stones ones. Within a week my copy of Some Girls was already scratched. That, to me is the main downside to the cardboard sleeves. I agree about their size too, they don't seem to fit into standard size CD storage racks.

My cat blogging on her MySpace behind my back! :angry:

Day 2,983 of my captivity: My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength. The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet. Today, I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates my capabilities and my disdain for other life forms. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a "good little hunter" I am. There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of "allergies." I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage. Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow, but at the top of the stairs. I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released, and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded. The bird must be an informant. I observe him communicate with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe. For now...

Only one of our cats fits that. Our newest kitty, Downstairs (yes, that's his name - he stays in the basement) is we believe, part dog. We say that because he follows us everywhere, licks our hands and faces like a dog would and is ALWAYS vocalizing or "talking" to us. When we come into the room, he has to jump off whatever he's sleeping on and come nuzzle our legs and purr. It's the cutest damn thing.

hahaha :)...that's true because when I had my two tomcats, they acted like they didn't give a darn. I'd come home from work and if they were already fed, they'd shrug their shoulders at my grand entrance. :P (But, in truth, I know they loved me and that this feeling was mutual ;) )

Downstairs, lol (cute name) sounds so adorable. My Siamese, Toby, used to fetch paper balls when she was younger. No matter where you threw it (usually we would throw them up the steps) she would run after it, and bring it back to you in her mouth. She still licks me, mostly on my hands or arms (though i can't stand it)!

People that are so set in their ways that no logical argument put in front of them will change anything.

It is the very crux of all frustrations.
