There is a certain kind of person who is repulsed by trends (and I am totally one of them) 

I am actually a little extreme with my antitrendism

like my new word there?a-hard-days-night-john-3

When I was around 12, and all the girls in my class started wearing make up, I went automatically went the other direction, and still don’t wear it, even now I’m in high school, and it’s something that everyone just does.

when something is popular, especially in terms artists/bands, I am overlly cynical about it to begin with. It seems like a lot of Beatles fans share this quality. (I’m generalizing here) Part of the allure of the Beatles is that they are both so popular everyone has at least heard of them, but not popular in the way you can’t count on people knowing all of their names. They’re popular in an iconic way 

they are bigger than Jesus after all a-hard-days-night-paul-11

but in many ways not as popular as 1D is, if you get what I’m trying to say. And that makes being a Beatles fan much cooler than a 1D fan, and not just because 1D is total bullshit. Artistic merit of the music aside, being a Beatles fan has so much more identity to it than being a fan of any band that is currently a trend. Obviously, the feeling of identity and originality is not the reason we are Beatles fans, its just an added bonus. 

Anyway, my point is some people just repel trends, purely because its a trend, whereas other people embrace trends for social reasons.

Thank you! I was having a very insightful moment into the minds of one direction fans when I wrote thata-hard-days-night-ringo-13

If it’s any consolation, I much prefer girls without make-up, or at least natural make-up. People look like bloody clowns these days! And they’ve all sluttified themselves, and all of that is what makes it difficult for me to find someone. With Elizabeth, she never wore make-up. She was never like the rest (but she had boyfriends and I’m just a jealous guy and it makes me panicky af), and that’s one of the best things. She was modest, she was funny, she had just that little bit of eccentricity which made my heart shrivel up just by hearing her. But because of society’s new ideals, not many people noticed her. Except for a few… but, really, I’m not one to talk about those, although everyone seemed to blame me when overhearing it… even though they pretty much shouted it out, right next to me, in a quiet room. Delightful. But I digress (this is already a tangent as it is), it was all enough to stun me, more or less, causing everything to spin… (get the Dizzy Miss Lizzy joke out of the way pls) and now it’s the same, but for all the wrong reasons, all with the wrong effect. She was one of the few girls who didn’t wear make up, didn’t have sex with literally everyone (yes, at fourteen) and I thought that was going to be it, finally. I thought I’d found my dream person. For me, attractiveness in girls isn’t based on how little clothing they wear, but who they are (and in terms of physical things, it’s more of a ‘cuteness’ for me), their personality, their humour and their skills. Gotta love a girl who plays an instrument.

Exactly. What’s funny about the whole psychology of make-up is that the girl wearing it is the only one who cares how perfectly curled her eyelashes are or whatever. No one else even notices that kind of stuff. It’s such a weird insecurity. I know people who refuse to leave the house, even if its just to get the mail or a cup of coffee without spending at least 45 minutes on the smallest detail of their face. I really don’t understand it. Besides, with the money I don’t spend on make-up, I could buy enough guitar strings to last me the next few years. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

God this is getting off topic isn’t it?

Well, I’m actually pretty sure people would notice it if I wouldn’t wear make up. I’ve got light eyebrows with a few brown bits in there, so it looks rather weird if I don’t use make up. My eyelashes are darkblonde, but without mascara they look so..like nothing. 

Most people I know who don’t wear make up, have nice eyebrows and dark and long eyelashes. If I’d have that, I wouldn’t wear make up either. Make up is something that makes me more confident, yes. I also think I look better with make up on, more awake. Without make up I look a bit like a drug addict (and I only use eyebrowpowder, eyeliner and mascara, not even foundation or powder on my skin). I hate putting it on, but I just look better with it. I hate it when people use 7 layers of foundation, bronzer and god knows what else though. 

Oh and I don’t know anything about make up. I always just buy what looks and sounds good to me.

Is David Walliams playing Pudsey, he’s got star billing above the film name? No doubt its going to be crap but is this so unexpected. I’m just glad i havent wasted one second of my life watching such garbage like Britains Got Talent which is created in every way possible to get maximum exposure and revenue including how it is edited when you watch it. And idiots fall for it all.blue-meanie 

We also got a Paul Pott’s film last year starring James Corden. I saw one scene during a tv programme plugging it and it was dire.

Trends… yeah… I don’t think I listen to anything recorded after 1999…

From hula hoops through arguments about dress colour, we have always had them and always will whatever people think of them.

Some interesting discussion in this topic though.

So it’s Beatles for me…

I think our discussions have become more diverse as we add new members, but I guess that’s to be expected.

Well, some threads just go in and out. Like, The Baker’s Dozen used to be a lot more popular than it is now.
