The Hater’s Guide To Taylor Swift


Referenced from Drew Magary’s Blog Post

 

 

Apropos of nothing, can I unsubscribe to Taylor Swift? Is that possible? I’d really like it to be possible.

I don’t quite know how I ended up with all this Taylor Swift in my life. FACT: Eighty-five percent of all advertisements and magazine covers are now mandated by law to feature Taylor Swift, or at least some portion of her hair crimping. Anytime there’s an award show or special live presentation or a Kia dealership grand opening, you can pretty much count on Swift showing up with her guitar and undermining the days and days of effort that Autotune put into creating one of her albums. Fuck, even Collinsworth spent last week’s Sunday Night game gushing about her. I can’t get away from this bitch. I even know she dates Jake Gyllenhaal. AND OMG BEEFY NECK GUY FROM TWILIGHT TOTALLY BROKE HER HEART!

I don’t understand all the fuss. Taylor Swift makes training bra music. Her shit is one step removed from a Fisher Price Little People CD. Every record she sells should come with a complimentary pack of Spree. If you’re over fourteen, you shouldn’t want anything to do with it. But no, every fucking adult music critic on Earth fawns over this girl and protects her like she’s some kind of goddamn forest pixie. SHE’S SO MATURE FOR AGE! SHE HANDLED THAT KANYE SITUATION SO WELL! SHE’S SO ARTICULATE! No, seriously. Someone wrote that.

Swift’s thoughtful honesty and surprisingly articulate take on life should be commended.

What is this, a fucking report card? HOORAY! SHE’S ALMOST 21 AND HAS THE ABILITY TO SPEAK! And since when is this chick honest? Have you heard some of these lyrics?

But she wears short skirts, I wear t-shirts
She’s cheer captain and I’m on the bleachers
Dreaming bout the day when you wake up and find
That what you’re lookin for has been here the whole time

First of all, is there anything honest about that? This woman is a fucking ROCK STAR and a millionaire. She’s, like, ninety stages above the cheer captain. Cheer captains are fucking special ed students compared to her. And she never wears fucking t-shirts. She wears $10,000 Halston gowns and all kinds of other sparkly shit. Some producer in Nashville probably made her write this so that fat Jenny in the seventh grade out there would have music that “speaks to her”. And there’s nothing mature about this shit. It’s the soundtrack to a trip to Spencer Gifts. Anyone could write that. I could write that.

It’s late at night and he’s sendin’ you a text
But you just bought your first box of Kotex
He doesn’t know you’re a bloody mess
But if he saw your crotch, he could probably guess…

It’s not that hard, okay? This fucking Kanye thing has made everyone treat Swift like she’s some precious doll they bought at the Franklin Mint. Meanwhile, Justin Bieber and his fans get made fun of (rightfully so) by fucking EVERYONE. And Bieber actually IS a kid! He’s not even voting age, the way this woman is. But somehow you’re an asshole if you hate Taylor Swift? That’s bullshit. BULLSHIT. Just because she’s the official spank bank material for every white asshole on the Texas Rangers roster doesn’t mean I have to give a crap.

People, I am here to grant you permission to hate Taylor Swift at will. You can go right ahead and laugh at her horrible singing and hope she ends up blowing local Tennessee DJs in lieu of record company payola handouts. Go ahead. Don’t feel bad. She’s a big girl. She can handle it. She’ll probably even be able to make a really shitty album out of it.

CRICKET : More than Just a GAME


It is true indeed. It is really running in our Blood, beating our heart, swinging the emotions, making us anticipated, exhilarating our mind and eventually giving us Joy and Pleasure in the end. A True Cricket Fan, who really understands these familiar senses and feelings that always and forever resides while spectating this kind of Game either on Stadium or on their Television Sets, would be able to catch me easily.

Craze among Cricket Fans while watching the Game in TV

Fans Screaming

I don’t know what does it means for other Countries. It really means a lot to India. Inspite not being a National Game, it is mostly played and enjoyed by many. Every single Cricket Fan, would have same traits like I am having. We all get rid off from our busy life for a while and keep an eye on every Ball, every Run, every Boundary and every Wicket of this Game, for hours. Cheering for our Team, Baiting Nails on Serious Situation and Shouting when Our Team has hit a Boundary or taken a Wicket. We even try to give our expert views and comments, before and after the match. We eventually make a HYPE of this Game. May be it’s Wrong to an extent, as we are more biased towards Cricket, not for other Sports, especially our own National Sport – Hockey. But It’s Cricket Fever as always, baby. You can’t help it.

Now since the Cricket World Cup 2011 is going on and which is happening in Indian Sub-Continent, it still be having BIG HYPE for sure, Like Indian Premier league (IPL) every year.

Support The Nation

But on the contrary, with all these support and favoritism to our Team, it also brings HYPER NATIONALISM and HYPOCRISY for one’s country. People would highly support our Team, pretending and flaunting others that we are such a BIG Fans of Cricket. Some would even do Spiritual Bon-Fires or “Havanas” for that.

''Havana'' for Indian Cricket Team

It the same ole problem. Whenever there’s HYPE, people would follow it sure, just to grab attention from everybody. The same case exists during the World Cup as well. People would be wearing Indian Jersey, talking about Cricket 24 x 7. But when all the event ends, its HYPE ends and people then don’t give a DAMN afterwards.

Well, even Film actors are in this race. They also come for the match, not only for spectating the game, but also for promoting their movie or getting some attention in public.

Actors come for Movie Promotion

Ya, Some of them made a Cricket Team of their own in IPL and making a lot of money form there, even if they know sh*t about this Game and Players.

Shah Rukh Khan (Owner of Kolkata Knight Riders)

Preity Zinta (Owner Of Kings XI Punjab)

While some make relations with Cricketers, just to grab attention and publicity in Media.

Harbhajan Singh (Super-Hit Bowler) & Geeta Basra (Super-Flop Actress)

Yuvraj Singh (Talented Cricketer) & Dee-pika- Padu-Kaun (Untalented Actress cum Model)

Even if that doesn’t works, some wannabes would try something else, to get famous. Very recently, an Indian Kingfisher model (or I say a bimbo) named, “Poonam Pandey”. shocked everyone when she committed that she will take off all of her clothes in the stadium in case of an Indian victory. Pandey claimed that she will first go naked in the stadium for the crowd and then the Kingfisher model plans to strip inside the dressing room in front of the players with the permission of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). For getting started, she begins with this. An ICC World Cup 2011 Logo on her back, showing off with vanity.

Poonam Pandey - Truly Fake Fan Supporter

Poonam Pandey - Wannabe Fan Supporter and Slut

For all these non-sense, she proclaims herself as a True Cricket Fan and Patriotic. She even BRAGS that she is confident of her body and is doing it just to motivate Dhoni’s Team and company, in her own way. Taking some inspiration from this prostitute, another Wannabe shows up like that.

Sofia Hayat - Another Wannabe Fan Supporter

It’s simply pathetic. This reminds me when an Uruguayan Model did so for supporting her Football Team, during FIFA World Cup 2010. It is Cheap Publicity and Promotion of Obscenity, whether such cheap milf sluts admit this or not.

Apart from this, not only our Hypocritical Media who would over-rate our cricket team on victory and demoralize them on their demise. I’ve witnessed some people or i say so-called cricket fans, who would get over-excited and over-ambitious when our Team wins, and would be criticizing and making FUN of the losing Team, even if they’ve also performed well but it wasn’t their day.

There are plenty of examples, but Let’s talk about the recent ones.

The India-Australia Quarter-Final encounter in Ahmadabad, where we won by 5 wickets.

Aftermath of India-Aussie Match

Aftermath of India-Aussie Match II

We were not still done, as we thrashed Pakistan at Semi-final in Mohali by 29 runs.

Aftermath of Indo-Pak Match

Sometimes, such pics seems bit FUNNY and that’s for a while , but not everytime. People forget to realise that even the losing team has performed well. Instead of giving them some appreciation for reaching here so far, they would give such harsh comments in the end. My facebook friend just wrote on his status when India defeated Pakistan, ” 11 Terrorists have been raped and f*cked hard by Indians in Mohali  ” .  Is it valid quote to show your victory to other ??

And those same Hypocrites would back-stab the support of their own Team, by giving harsh comments and lame verdicts. It seems so pathetic, when such parasites would burn their posters and cut-outs and even make them ride on donkeys.

Again plenty of instances,where Dejected fans shown their anger.

During World Cup 1996, where we lost in the Semis.

Anger of Cricket Fans during India's loss against Sri Lanka in WC 1996

During World Cup 1999, where we were eliminated in Super Six.

Anger of Female Cricket Fans during India's loss

During World Cup 2003, where we lost in the Final.

and, even during World Cup 2007, where we were eliminated in Group Stage.

Eventually, we are not as matured as our Cricketers are. They’ve enjoyed their triumph and even faced their apocalypse. But they never give up and play their own game. Everybody has their good times and bad times. That’s unquestionable, unpredictable and inevitable. It’s better that we ought to support our Team forever, neither over-rating nor discouraging them.

Let all the People cheer for their country and appreciate other’s Nation.

Let all the Flags be on your Faces

Let all those Colorful Flags be waving high in the sky.

Let the Flag be United

Let there be Friendship between the Two Teams before, during and even after the match,
and Stay United.

Unity

That’s the duty of ours as  A True Cricket Fan in making this Gentlemen’s Game, completely clean inside the field as well as outside the field. Hopefully, we witness some maturity from our Cricket Fans and so-called Hype-followers, even we lose against Sri Lanka in the Finals.
