The Top 10 Guilty Pleasures of 2005

qualler and i scribbled on cocktail napkins, incited life-threatening arguments and played wicked decisive games of rochambeau to bring you our first list regarding 2005. and now, without further ado, we present to you...

THE BLOGULATOR'S TOP TEN GUILTY PLEASURES OF 2005:


TEN: flightplan

why we feel guilty: because it will be eternally known as "just panic room in the sky" and no one liked panic room either.

why it's actually good and we're just snobs: because jodie is the hottest actress of all time. (qualler MAY not agree with me here, but i'm the one blogging, so EAT IT sucka.)



NINE: coldplay - "fix you"

why we feel guilty: "i hate how much the breakdown part makes me want to cry a little bit." -qualler. (he's serious).

why it's actually good and we're just snobs: hey, it's still better than new u2.



EIGHT: taradise

why we feel guilty: because underneath all that hilarious alcoholism, plastic surgery flab, and grossly hoarse voice is a real person.

why it's actually good and we're just snobs: haha! she's ALWAYS drunk!


SEVEN: jack's mannequin - "the mixed tape"

why we feel guilty: exquisitely cheesy post-post-emo pop from the lead singer of something corporate? of COURSE i'm interested!

why it's actually good and we're just snobs: "it's the most honest form of music." -wipert.



SIX: that xmas coke commercial with the penguins and polar bears.

why we feel guilty: because ice-cold coca-cola is not a logical holiday beverage.

why it's actually good and we're just snobs: ADORABLE! fuck.


FIVE: gorillaz - "feel good, inc."

why we feel guilty: "it's sad that anything associated with a leading member of blur has to be considered a guilty pleasure." -qualler.

why it's actually good and we're just snobs: it's impossible to not dance to this song. that bassline if funkin' cracking.



FOUR: making fun of death cab for cutie

why we feel guilty: because for a long time, they were genuinely our favorite band. and this makes us feel bad, regardless of how awful plans is.

why it's actually good and we're just snobs: because they released plans. FUCK.



THREE: kanye west - "gold digger (feat. jamie foxx)"

why we feel guilty: qualler says it rocks him to hard. i say i hate jamie foxx. we're both right.

why it's actually good and we're just snobs: seriously, it would be awesome to have this as the recessional song at my wedding someday.




TWO: house of wax

why we feel guilty: because i actually considered having this on my top 10 movies of 2005 list.

why it's actually good and we're just snobs: because i actually considered having this on my top 10 movies of 2005 list.



ONE: hilary duff - "beat of my heart"

why we feel guilty: n/a

why it's actually good and we're just snobs: too obvious to type. just go listen already.

    Well done, gents. Can't wait for the other lists.

    House of Wax? Really? Seriously? I was with you guys when you saw that thing. Did you really like it that much? For real?

    I can barely digest this information.

    I have to admit that I enjoyed it, but purely on a "so bad it's good" level. Do you actually think it's worthwhile beyond that? Or do you just think it's so bad it's really, really good?

    I did think it was a perfect bad horror movie... but I never thought of it as more than that, and basically can't remember a single thing about it at this point.

    Please help my confusion. I promise I won't judge you.

    Hey Chris, we mean that it was on a "so bad it's good" level for sure. I think the point is that there were so few actual good movies that came out this year that a bad-good movie nearly made our real top ten.

    Okay, that makes sense, as I have to say it is one of the best examples of "so bad it's good" horror I've seen. I really think if Paris Hilton has any quality that will prolong her celebrity status, it's that she's perfectly made to act in bad horror. I hate her, but I have to admit she just does terrible acting very well.

    I haven't seen all that many movies this year, since I spent the summer in Kansas and the rest in Japan after leaving MN. (A lot of American movies come out here, but much later... So the stuff I couldn't see in Kansas I still haven't seen... ) I thought the lack of actual good movies was probably a part of it, but I wasn't sure. So, I sorta missed out on that part of it.

    Just making sure you're still reasonable human beings with taste.

    oh yeah and house of wax is actually genius. lots of commentary on desensitization upon 2nd viewing. quite remarkable actually. i highly encourage watching it again. they crawl out of their own movie poster!

    yeah and it's the perfect bad horror movie. they crawl out of their own movie poster!
