What are your guilty pleasures? You know, those things you have no business enjoying yet you still do. Put it this way, if you need an excuse to enjoy it, it is a guilty pleasure:

Here are some of mine:
1) Spongebob - My daughter is 10 months old, and I she and I watch WAY too much Spongebob. Funny show.
2) French Fries - I know that they are bad for me, but I love them so
3) Video Games - I'm too old, I should be doing more productive things, but they suck me in.
4) posting on Redszone - I spend WAY too much time worrying about Jay Bruce's OPS.
5) Shoes - I have an extensive collection of Puma's. It's embarassing.
6) Latte's - I know they are a yuppie drink, have more calories than most meals, and have enough caffeine to wake up a Rhino, but they taste sooo good.

If enjoying Spongebob and other media for kids is a guilty pleasure, then count me in too. I especially enjoy reading picture books with my kids. Jon Scieszka? That guy's writing for me, too!

Tecmo Super Bowl


Gotta agree with the blimpster, spent many a night with the Tecmo Bowl (with blimpie) in college. I will never forget back up TE Harper Le Bel catching a 70+ yard TD with time expiring to end in my defeat circa summer 1993. It pains me (mildly) to this day. I will even throw in the Atari 2600. Bought the atari "flashback" for $25 on atari.com. Play it a couple times a month.

Me, too! I'm pretty sure you've been to the Dorothy Lane Market in Kettering but they have an incredible selection right near the checkouts. Whenever I'm in the area I try to swing by to stock up.

Also Thin Mints Girl Scout Cookies. I always buy at least 7 boxes total of cookies with 4 being the Thin Mints. Actually, next year I'll just buy all Thin Mints. Perfect frozen!

Ok, here we go and if I am asked about this in court I will deny it. About once every 2 months or so I will make a run to the comic book store at Trader's World in Monroe/trying to get all the Batman team-up Brave and the Bolds or good 1970's cheapie comics that I can....I also love Andes mints and clementines but cant eat em too much anymore due to the diabetes.

Just for kicks I turned it on one Saturday night (she was around 2) and she was mesmerized. I figured it was the bright colored clothes from the 70's era shows and the abbreviated songs. While we don't watch it as regularly as we once did, I still kinda enjoy watching it if we're home at that hour.

It was not the clothes, durl. It was the telepathic signals those singers were sending out. I think it was a government sponsored program to put old people into a trance. Your kid will never be the same, I am afraid.

While I'm at it, I might as well admit to watching Top Chef with my GF.

Has anybody watched The First 48 on A&E? They follow around homicide detectives from the time the team gets the call. It's an awsome show, but kinda scary, especially when they are following around the Cincinnati Homicide unit. Although it does ease my fears of random killings, apparently you either have to deal drugs, steal drugs, or be on drugs to be killed. 99 percent of those homocides center around drugs.

What's so guilty about that? I do that all the time. Of course, singing in the truck stop shower can get you some looks when you come out of there and realize that the shower rooms aren't soundproof. I'm not trying to brag, but I have a pretty decent voice and the other day I was singing in the shower and when I came out this other trucker was heading down the hallway to his shower room and he looked at me and said, "Why in the hell are you driving?" I'll take it as a compliment.

My wife and I like to watch terrible network television. Our all time favorite might have been "The Profiler". Right now, we like "Numbers", a truly awful and completely unbelievable show about a genius professor and an FBI that somehow cannot solve crimes without using his algorithms.
"Criminal Minds" is a close second right now. Am I to understand that there is an FBI team that actually gets a chartered jet all to themselves, and that the skinny, effete brainiac guy is actually cleared to carry a weapon?
And don't get me started on "Crossing Jordan" or "CSI: Miami".

I can't access Youtube at work but do yourself a favor and find the Welk singers performing the Brewer & Shipley song "One Toke Over the Line," which is introduced as a "gospel song." Absolutely fantastic.

A song about pot is introduced as a Gospel song?

Kids cereal- King Vitamin, but if my wife weren't a sugar fascist I'd buy the kids Cap'n Crunch and eat half the box.

Bike riding- lots of guys in our neighborhood are serious riders, putting in a century a week. I just like to ride my bike because it feels exactly the same as it did when I was ten. I can't think of anything else like that.

I had it slightly wrong; Welk recaps it as a "modern spiritual."

This is something of a guilty pleasure, getting enjoyment out of the misery of someone else- the Marimba Lady from the Miss America Pageant. Sit back and watch a train wreck that occurred on national television.

If you can't see it and hear it, I'm glad for you. It's an awful, awful performance with perhaps more missed than correct notes. She's stiff as a board, with practically no rhythm whatsoever and as the song progresses she sinks deeper into a hole until the end as she just bangs out notes to get through the piece and get out of there. Trust me- it's bad, a train wreck that happened on live TV in front of millions.

Any sit-com on the Disney Channel. I watch Sunny Wizards of Montana Place. I love the bright colors and the cheese. Also, So You Think You Can Dance (that one is about cool hip-hop dancing, and hot chicks in tight clothes).

You know how weird it is to see a person who you've only heard on radio, and the mental image you have of them turns out to be completely wrong? This Hallmark Channel fess up is producing the same kind of moment for me.

Also love the cereals I ate as a kid. There isn't a bad one, except Cap N Crunch still has a tendency to tear the roof of my mouth up.

So true, and it was murder to eat with braces, but did I stop? No.

I actually do like Taylor Swift, and I am not going to make any apologies about it. But then again, I also like Glee, and nearly all Broadway musicals.

I once thought that I might be gay, and to be honest, I didn't have a problem with it, but I really didn't want to have to give up dating women if I was. I just love women too much to be a homosexual. That, and I don't think I could get myself in good enough shape.

1. Old School WWF Wrestling, still watch old VHS tapes even though I know every move of every match, especially the 1990 Royal Rumble.

2. Benny Mardones-"If I could Fly"

3. Paula Abdul-"Promise of a New Day", man she looked good in that video.

4. 80s Hair Metal Power Ballads, they get me every time, I love them and I really don't care if anyone says I'm gay cause I like them.

5. I'm a Cincinnati Bengals fan, nuff said.

I hope you watched it on DVR or at least on demand. My wife & I watch it, but I couldn't imagine sitting thru a live episode. There are so many commercials and flashbacks when coming back from commercial that the 2 hour show can be watched in about 45 minutes, which makes it tolerable.

When did that start? It seems like every show has 15 seconds of "coming up" and 15 seconds of "you may have missed" around each commercial break. That is 30 seconds of garbage around, say, six commercial breaks on an hour show. They added three minutes of complete garbage to the episode, what a waste.

I don't watch a ton of "reality" tv, so perhaps its a reality TV thing. My wife & I get a kick out of being able to predict when the commercial is about to happen. Its usually pretty obvious. Whats even worse is the "in show commercial" they have every week where they try to pretend its not a commercial, but just some helpful advice from the trainer to a contestant how a particular product can really help with their weight loss. Its shameless, but there was 1 spot last year, for what I don't remember, that totally caught us off gaurd.
