The new Roseanne reboot, especially without her in it anymore.

Olive Garden - it's definitely not real Italian food and it's not a place I'd choose, but if I end up there, it's not bad.

"We Built This City"

Is it the best song? Nah, and it's not a great way for Grace Slick to hit the back nine of her career, but people act like it's the most atrocious song ever recorded. It's kinda catchy & sort of ridiculous, but it's hardly the worst song ever.

Nickelback isn't great, but they're hardly the most offensive band out there.

The critics hated Patch Adams, but it's got Robin Williams & Philip Seymour Hoffman. Settle down. It's not that bad.

Cheap, generic booze, if you're just going to mix it with something.  Maybe some people can tell if their mixed drink has top shelf or generic vodak, but I can't.

The Star Wars prequels. Yes, Jar Jar was terrible unless you were the 5 to 8 years old audience he was designed for. Otherwise, they are solid enough.

People being Instagram models or YouTube famous or social media "influencers" and similar stuff. I'm not into any of those things, but getting mad they they exist just makes you sound like Grandpa Simpson. Times change, and young people are spending their time on other types of media. Nothing wrong with that.

She did that in Desperado. Another Robert Rodriguez build. Which was El Mariachi remade.

Watersports.

I hear so many people poopoo the idea, but if you get an instructor to help you, it can actually be fun.

Some people pay a lot of money for it, but it can be a free thing to do too. Usually kids love it, though most don't know what they're doing.

Domino's Pizza.  It's not the world's best, but they really have worked to improve their quality.  Ingredients and taste have improved, and with the expanded choices they offer for crusts, sauces, and cheeses, you can build a pretty good Domino's pie.

Some of my pizza snob friends go out of their way to order Domino's now, if they can specify the Marinara sauce instead of the normal stuff.

Friday the 13th, the NES game.

It's not great, but it's got some interesting strategy elements.  I owned it when I was a kid and never beat it.  Finally was able to beat it with save states in an emulator.  Then finally got good enough to beat it without cheating.

Yes, it's LJN.  Yes, the Angry Video Game Nerd made fun of it.  But he couldn't even figure out that you have to duck when you throw rocks to hit anything!

I am also partial to Who Framed Roger Rabbit.  (Still haven't beaten it)

Cargo pants.   Not fashionable ever.. but they hold your phone handy on the side of your upper leg.

/  have overalls w/ a side pocket like that - great for when you're painting walls or gardening and want your phone close but safe.

Injections into your eyeballs.  Have them every 8 weeks or so.  Given the choice, I'd probably pass, but the idea of them is really worse than the reality.  It's usually just a fleeting pinch.  Your eyes are already dilated and numbed and so your vision's compromised, but an injection into your arm probably hurts more.

Tom Waits: There's a theatre right up Western, with seven X's. I mean, double-X, okay. Triple-X, eh... but seven X's. "GIRLS WITHOUT SKIN". That's all I could think... that I wanna see. "Come here baby, you're a doll, I love ya!"

Sorry you are wrong. Desperado was #2 in Rodriguez's 'Mexico Trilogy' not a remake.

Having a tooth pulled isn't too bad, as long as the dentist puts enough freezing in. Having the needle shoved into your gums repeatedly isn't fun, but after that i'ts okay. My last extraction, the tooth had cracked into three pieces, so it took the poor guy much longer to get it all out. He was a little sweaty at the end of it.

It's just a matter of time and rum before I pull the trigger on Amazon.

Diabetes or macular degeneration?

I tell patients, "I know 'stick a needle in your eye' has been a threat since grade school, but I promise it's not as bad as you expect."

You what's not that great but some people think it's great.

Pumpkin Pie.

I mean it's a exercise in mediocrity. It's just there...and doesn't offend and doesn't inspire...it simply exists as a pie.

Sure...the CRUST is the only thing that makes one pumpkin pie better than the other. I'll give you that.

But remove that element...it's kinda meh...same damn pumpkin pie you'd get at walmart, publix, or grandmas. And one isn't that objectively much better than the other. It's the pie of the people.
