Lord Sugar is the guy behind the UK Apprentice. If it wasn't for that i'd consider him a full-time prat.

Prat- "a stupid or foolish person."

Sometime this weekend I'm working "prat" in a conversation and see what kind of weird looks I get.

People who don't understand my obsession with the Beatles, yet watch every "Reality" show imaginable. To which I reply:

I'm already a Big Brother, the Kardashians would be hard pressed to keep up with me, "Real" Housewives have had so much "Plastic" Surgery that warm smiles make them nervous, today's Top Model is tomorrow's has been, the Biggest Losers watch Reality Shows, Simon Cowell is a giant douche and Gordon Ramsey should be sliced, diced, chopped, minced and mixed into a stew only to be tossed out for lack of taste. I could not care less about Storage Wars, Whale Wars, Parking Wars, Border Wars, Design Wars, Whisker Wars, Fan Wars, Cupcake Wars, Battlefield: Rhino Wars or Shipping Wars. Wanna see a real Survivor? Meet my dog Lily. All I do is read books and watch DVD's about four real guys who came from nowhere and changed everything.

That was my point - they are my reality show. Was I too subtle?

One of the many things I hate about reality shows is the stupid musical cues they layer overtop of everything. Also the way those "Big Brother" participants always whisper loud enough for the microphones to catch every word. (Only reason I know details about these programs is because I've got family members who watch a bunch of 'em when I'm visiting. Meanwhile, I find something else to do - several of my Beatlesbible posts have been written while "Big Brother" is airing in front of me. I do confess to finding the foulmouthed Chef Ramsay pretty funny when he's really angry, however. Those cooking shows aren't bad, kinda informative.)

Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmare's (or whatever its called) was good in the early days but its become soooooooooooooooooooooooo heavily staged and altered its now unwatchable. It even comes with a note at the bottom of each episode telling you parts of it are staged.

I once watched Masterchef for kids in which he was a jury member, and he was such a nice, friendly and calm guy! I was flabbergasted.

Updates for software. Apple have updated itunes and in their brilliant wisdom have made it more of a hurdle to muddle about with your ipod when syncing it etc then before. Nobody on earth wants to spend an extra 10 minutes messing about so why do the folk who create the new versions think we do. Morons.blue-meanie

One of my growing list of pet peeves is the way this Beatles Bible site has this subtle "bouncy" lag when you try to page down to get down further to see stuff below the upper stuff.  I've experienced this on three different computers (two of friends), so it's not just my computer.  It's hardly a major calamity or privation (most pet peeves aren't anyway), and some websites are even worse in this regard -- but it still annoys...

Yeah! My laptop started updating when I wanted to turn it off last night, so I decided to let it on to run the updates. Apparently it turned itself off during the process, because when I wanted to turn it on again it started whining about having to do updates again.

And the music app on my phone also ran an update. Now the cover of the album of the song you're listening to becomes the background on my phone when I'm listening to something. It's rather annoying and I don't have a clue how I could get this away.

The Recommended videos for you on YouTube. I can't figure out a way to get rid of it. It used to go away when I deleted my Video/Search history but now it somehow recommends me videos anyway.

Download a pop-up blocker add-on for your browser, should stop the ads appearing no matter what the recommendation is.

ahdn_paul_06 I don't think they are adds cause adds look different and are labeled as such. This is Youtube showing me videos that it thinks I like. The problem with this is that when I am watching a Beatles video, I get recommendations for a WWII propaganda cartoon just cause I watched it once. And it doesn't let me SHUT IT OFF!

ahdn_paul_06 I got an add blocker for fox and it still shows recommended videos on Youtube. Do you watch Youtube while on a Youtube or Google account?
