6/1/06 - Well Done Burgers

One of the safest items to order on any menu is the burger. No matter where you are, you can probably be assured that the burger will atleast be decent. Even a bad burger is tolerable.

Well, I recently visited an establishment where the burger must be cooked "medium". This is a realtively common phenomenon at places run by large corporations as they must avoid liability. I have no problem with that. What I do have a problem with is their definition of medium. It was more like ultra-well-done. It might as well have been a piece of cardboard.

It got me thinking. Who orders there meat well-done? I always hear the same excuse, these people are scared of germs. Well, when was the last time you heard of someone getting sick from eating a burger cooked medium. I never have and I hang out with a lot of people who eat burgers. In fact, I have on rare occassion ordered a burger rare. I'm still alive.

Well-done meat is disgusting. I think that people who prepare well-done meat no longer deserve to be called chefs. The word cook would even be a stretch for them. Well-done meat must be left cooking until not a drop of juice is left in it. It also must be left cooking until there is little to no taste left.

Eating is supposed to be an enjoyable experiece. Food should taste good. Well-done meat does not.

Well done-meat: I hate you.

5/31/06 - Anime


Maybe I'll take some heat for this one, but I hate anime. I just don't get it. Why is this cool? Why are adult men fascinated with this? It just seems like crappy animation to me. Please keep in mind that I was not raised on comicbooks but do have an appreciation for the tradational old-school marvel and DC comics.

I once saw a piece of anime I kindof liked. That was in Kill Bill 2 I think. Even then it seemed contrite and forced. The whole genre is mind numbing. What are they trying to accomplish?

Take a look at the kids in the pic above. Do they look like any children you have ever seen? They certainly don't look asian. If anime is Japan's great contribution to the world you think they would have imparted more of their ethnicity into their drawings.

The most disturbing part is the amount of porn associated with anime. Who is getting off to this? This might be the most disturbing porn out there besides women who f*ck animals. I say that anyone that enjoys this porn should be sent to the island where we send all the pedophiles. I have no problem with deviant sexual behavior. You like to drip wax on your nipples while hanging upside down with a turkey club shoved up your a**, fine with me. But if you get off to anime, thats just wrong.

According to Wiki, anime features a wide variety of artistic styles which vary from artist to artist and is characterized by stark, colorful graphics and stylized, colorful images depicting vibrant characters in a variety of different settings and storylines, aimed at a wide range of audiences.

I have two responses to that: 1. anime is crap and 2. that description of anime was probably written by a pedophile.

Anime: I hate you.

5/30/06 - Movie Food Combos


There are many complaints that I could list about movie theaters but most of them would be trite. We all dislike the rising prices. We all dislike the numerous commercials before the show starts. We all dislike sitting next to strangers.

No, my hate must be reserved for those details which truly nag at my soul. In this case, I am talking about those combo "meals" they push at the movie theater. They always hand you that little flyer with your tickets that lists like 3 combos. The worst part about these flyers is that they do not list the price. Rather than saying large soda and popcorn $10.99, they say "large soda and popcorn, save $3.00." This is a tricky maneuver that I don't appreciate.

As I have indicated before the Hater is careful with his finances. Most trips to the movies start with a trip to the local CVS. I have smuggled in all kinds of candy, snacks, and beverages in my pants. Heck, once I attached a straw to the pouch from a box of wine and put the pouch inside my shirt. (not that I encourage that type of behavior, especially for my underage readers). But, these movie theaters not only charge ridiculous prices, but they don't even make it clear what the price is until they have rung it up and it is too late. I feel bad for the sad saps buying their goodies at the concession stand.

Movie theaters offering over-priced combos behind veiled advertising: I hate you.

P.S. whats the new first date? it can't be dinner and a movie, that could easily run you $60+. Is it getting coffee? Bowling? There really is no other activity where you can spend time in place a public sitting close to each other without talking.

5/29/06 - Celeb of the Week: Katie Couric


Its Monday once again and that means its time to point out another celebrity that I hate. This week the target is placed squarely on Katie Couric.

I'm not sure why she's considered such a great journalist. I've only watched the today show a few times but the few times I have seen her she has been discussing fluff subjects such as fashion. She does not strike me as a serious journalist unless you are worried about whether white pants are in or out this year. Personally if I had to chose a morning female anchor to give me the news I would chose Diane Sawyer. Sawyer has been called the Ice Queen; Couric, America’s Sweetheart and justly or otherwise, they personify their shows.

Before viewers’ eyes, Couric has morphed from girl next door to fashionista, trading in tailored suits for leather jackets, donning what seems like a different pair of glasses every week, and switching hairstyles with Hillary Clinton–like zeal. When she went public in 2002 with the fact that she had arm-wrestled NBC into giving her a four-and-a-half-year, $65 million contract, Couric lost credibility with middle-class viewers (Sawyer doesn’t take in laundry to pay the bills but is discreet about her salary). “When you have a woman who is pushing 50 coming into your living room at 7 A.M. dressed in an extremely age-inappropriate manner and making ridiculous comments like, ‘Oh, $100 for a skirt, I can’t imagine paying that’—when everyone knows what she’s earning—it doesn’t sit well,” says a Today staffer. source (the hater doesn't believe in plagarism)

Now Couric has been given the keys to the CBS evening news. What a disgrace. I can't imagine this woman giving me serious news every day. Good thing I don't watch network news anymore.

Katie Couric: I hate you.

05/26/06 - The Dentist

Like most people the Hater hates going to the Dentist. I'm not sure that I can write anything that hasn't been said before. But, I know that Steve Martin is extremely talented. If you have a minute watch the below video



Dentist: I hate you.

5/25/06 - Male Dance Troupes


SO this is something that I meant to write on a while ago. Its not really time relevant at the exact moment, but I just remembered how much I hate it. You see, many NBA teams have started all male dance companies. It gets worse. These are not men who are skilled in dance. They are usually groups filled with fat guys who are there to make people laugh. Theres nothing funny about fat people dancing. Theres certainly nothing sexy about it. Even my home town Sixers have started a group, the Broad Street Beefcakes. I think you have weigh 250lbs+ to join.

Whats the point of these groups? Heterosexual men will not find them entertaining. Homosexual men will not find them entertaining. Heterosexual women will not find them attractive. I can't speak as an authority on homosexual women, but I assume they won't find them entertaining either. I doubt transvestites enjoy this. So who does that leave? No one. Atleast when they put out scantily clad women there is a segment of the audience that enjoys it.

Fat dancing men: I hate you.

5/24/06 - Dry Cleaners

I don't understand the pricing system at the dry cleaners. I shirt only costs 99 cents, but pants cost $4.50. Can anyone explain this to me? From my limited experience it is easier to iron pants than it is to iron a shirt. And while I am not a women, why do they charge twice as much to clean a women's blouse as they do to clean a men's dress shirt. I blieve arguing this exact point has gotten the Hater's mom banned from three local dry cleaners.

While we're on the subject, what is dry cleaning? How does the stuff get clean without water? It is certainly a process that I have never understood.

Who gets their shirts in boxes? Every time I drop off shirts they ask if I want them on a hanger or in a box. Getting them in a box just seems goofy to me.

I have no good reason to go to the dry cleaners. I am student who certainly should not be pissing his money away there and I never understand the pricing schemes. Some how if I drop my stuff off on Tuesday its half the price if I drop it off on Saturday. Yet, I keep going back. I think they laugh me every time I leave the store.

Dry cleaner lady: I hat eyou.

5/23/06 Aniston v. Jolie: Who Cares?

There is no current discussion in current pop culture that I hate more than the Aniston v. Jolie debate. Who cares? This conversation has gone on way too long. The worst part is how some women hate on Angelina so harshly. "She's ugly," "I don't know what he sees is her," "How could he leave Jen." News flash ladies: men think Jolie is hot. End of story, end of debate. Find me a man who doesn't want to bang her like a drum. I doubt such a man exists.

And who cares if they are adopting babies in Africa? I adopted a stretch of highway in Virginia, does US Weekly want to do a story on that? I will probably treat the highway better than they do your children and you can be sure that the highway will not have some dumb-ass name.

I say hats off to Brad, he has accomplished two major tasks. 1. Hes banged two of the most desirable women in the world and 2. he left his wife, yet the whole world blames Jolie not him.

Women who are still obsessing over this relationship: I hate you.

5/22/06 - Celeb of the Week: Ted Nugent

Sorry for the delay in posting. Unfortunately blogging continues to slip down the list of priorities for me. But alas, I'm back and here's another edition of celebs I hate.

This week I direct my venom at Ted Nugent. Myabe he was cool back in the day when he was recording Cat Scratch Fever but now he is just an annoying, creepy, old man. To date he has had 2 reality shows (both on VH1). The first was an apprentice style show, where he tried to show off how country he was and put the contestant through the lamest contests ever. The more recent show is "Super Group" where he teams up with Ian Scott, Evan Seinfled, Sebastian Bach, and Jason Bonham (John Bonham's son). Perhaps all of these men deserve their own celebrity hate.

Ted Nugent likes to walk around with a bow and arrow claiming that he likes to kill his own meat. Hey guess what Ted, they have the same stuff at the supermarket and its probably tastier.

I won't talk about my position on gun control, this isn't a political blog, but I think Ted has more guns than a few small nations. I guess the Nugent compound is a target for al Qaeda.

He's an insane old man who no longer belongs in the lime-light.

Ted Nugent: I hate you.

Vacation



So I'm going on a short vacation and will hopefully be away from all computers for the next few days. I hope you can all get along without me.

In the mean time feel free to leave you own messages of hate in the comments.

And oh, I wanted to do some hate about those new aerodynamic helmets some mlb players are wearing. Anyone know where to find an image of one? Thanks.

Additionally, if you would like a message when I return, leave your e-mail or blog in the comments and I'll let you know.

5/17/06 Line Dancing


Have you been to a formal event recently? Perhaps a wedding? If you have, then you have invariably heard one of my least favorite songs, "The Electric Slide". I also hold equal disdain for "The Funky Chicken," "The Macarena," that one where you charlie brown, "Cotton-Eyed Joe," and all other songs that have dances associated with them. These songs are horrible for any number of reasons. If you, your son, and your mother can all preform the steps its probably not cool. Worse than that is the fact that 99% of people on the dance floor dont know the steps. They continually clap and turn and try to follow the lead. Yet, every time the songs come on they run to the dance floor. I don't blame djs for playing these songs, they're just trying to get the energy up. But, if you are at a party, you shouldn't need a lame song to become energetic. Thats what the booze is for.

Do you enjoy line dancing. If so, I hate you

5/16/05 - Children at Restaurants

I think that every chain restaurant has a kids eat cheap night, but I always fail to take it into account. Recently I was in the mood for some red meat (honestly, when am I not in the mood for red meat?) so I journeyed to my local Lone Star Steakhouse. Little did I know it was kids eat cheap night. Every table was filled with screaming children. My dining experience was far from pleasurable. It got me thinking though. When I was a kid, my parents never took me out to eat. They slapped a peanutbutter and jelly sandwich in front of me and I was happy. The few times we did go out, I was forced to be on my best behavior. You can be sure the Hater's parents did not allow any screaming, yelling, or food tossing.

Yet, every time I go to a restaurant this is what I see. Even the few occasions at nice restaurants subject me to the same torture. One time at a Chinese restaurant the parents had brought a portable DVD player for their children? Honestly, I wanted to hand them $20 and tell them to spring for the babysitter next time. I'm not saying that evey meal and every restauarant has to be perfect, I know I get what I pay for. But please, shut your kids up.

Is this your child out to eat?

If so, I hate you.

5/15/06 - What A Hater Should Never Do

Have any of you ever heard the Star and Bucwild Show? Its a nationally syndicated morning radio show that is primairily (maybe exclusively?) on hip-hop channels. The host, Star, promotes himself as a hater. Well, Star has gone and made a fool of himself. If anyone of you read about my conversations with Google over advertisements you would know that this is the exact type of hate that I discourage.

--------------------link
DJ Star, whose real name is Troi Torain, was charged with endangering the welfare of a child after a broadcast on Power 105.1 FM. Transcripts show he hurled racist insults, threatened to sexually abuse the 4-year-old daughter of his rival, Hot 97's DJ Envy, and offered $500 for information about where she went to school. "I will come for your kids," Torain said, according to a transcript provided by New York Councilman John C. Liu. Torain was arraigned after 11 p.m. Friday and posted $2,000 bail within an hour, authorities said. Police originally had indicated he also would be charged with harassment, but prosecutors decided against it for now, district attorney's spokeswoman Barbara Thompson said. Torain's lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, said his client's conduct was inappropriate but not criminal, and was "never intended to frighten the family." Torain -- along with his brother Timothy Joseph, known as Buc Wild -- was the host of Clear Channel Radio's syndicated morning show on Power 105. The company fired Torain after city officials complained. Their show aired in markets including Philadelphia, Miami and Richmond, Va. Sources stated that Clear Channel has picked up the syndicated program Live with Tigger & Egypt to replace the Star & Bucwild Show, Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. - 10 a.m. ET.

Star: I used to think you were a hater, now I hate you.

5/15/06 - Celeb of the Week: James Lipton


I can rarely turn on Bravo without seeing James Lipton's smug face on the screen. This guy is the worst. And his use of dramatic pauses is absurd. What makes him an expert on film? Here's his experience:
1. Head Writer, Another World (Soap Opera)
2. Head Writer, Guiding Light (Soap Opera)
3. Head Writer, Capitol (Sopa Opera)
4. Lyricst, Sherry! (Broadway Musical)

Well, I guess if writing 3 crappae soap operas and a musical I have never heard of maked you an expert on film, mission accomplished James Lipton.

Additionally he ends each show with a series of ten questions. Please note that he did not create these questions but rather stole them from Bernard Pivot. Here they are, along with the Daily Hater's answers:

1. What is your favorite word?
defenestrate

2. What is your least favorite word?
fabulous

3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
objectivism

4. What turns you off?
broad shoulders

5. What is your favorite curse word?
call me old fashion but I love the word f*ck

crickets

7. What sound or noise do you hate?
chewing ice-cubes

8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
lead guitarist of Styx

9. What profession would you not like to do?
dentist

10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
You did your best and left nothing on the table

Sorry for the self-indulgence.
James Lipton: I hate you.

5/12/06 - Sonic Burger Commercial


Have you watched tv recently? Every time I watch tv, especially basketball, I am forced to watch these stupis commercials for Sonic. There is not a single Sonic in the state I live in. There is not a single Sonic in the closest city (Philadelphia). In fact, the closest Sonic to my house, according to the Sonic website ie 69 miles away. Thats pretty far to travel for sh*tty fastfood.

To top it off, the commercials are incredibly annoying. In case you haven't seem them, allow me to describe them. Two semi-awkward guys are at a drive through. They attempt to order and make corny jokes. "Do you think bacon and sausage are friends like us? Only if like sausage is always borrowing money and forgetting to pick up bacon at the fairgrounds." Hold on one second while I stop laughing, I almost cannot type.

If I were to go to Sonic, I would order from the kids menu. Why? Because it has a corndog on it. Thats why. I like meat on a stick almost as much as I like hate on a stick.

Sonic Drive Through: I hate you.

P.S. I'm on vacation this weekend. Be back Monday with your regularly scheduled celebrity hate.

5/11/06 - TV Judges


I finally get to sleep in for a day. When I woke up, I turned on the TV and what is on like half the channels - court cases.

I guess this phenomenon is pretty old and goes back to the time of the original's People's Court, but by now the genre has gotten out of hand. Was that really Larry Elder hosting moral court? Didn't he used to be like the top black conservative radio host in the country? Whats going on here? And is there really a show called divorce court? Because I think divorce is a little more complicated than you can work out in a 23 minute segment.

The only redeeming aspect of these shows is the "post-trial" interview. Normal comments sound like, "Oh yeah, that b*tch got what she deserved" or "I'm glad I got the judgment but I still love him."

I hate these shows for reasons I am having trouble articulating, so I apologize. The whole exercise seems ridiculous. Sometimes I just hate and I don't fully understand why. This must be one of those times.

Judge Judy,Judge Maybellene, Juge Mathis, Judge Alex, and all you other TV judges: I hate you.

5/10/06 - Americans Who Don't Know American History

For all my international readers, I apologize. Today's hate is directed solely at the US of A. Too many citizens have no clue about American history. Of course the Hater knows his history, but that's because I'm smarter than you. Its disgraceful how few people know simple facts like the year the Constitution was written. It makes me sick.

Take the test, see how you fare.

You Passed the US Citizenship Test

Congratulations - you got 10 out of 10 correct!


If you fail: I hate you.

5/9/06 - Broccoli


Today's post is dedicated to all the children and adults with the palet of children who read this site. Like small children, I hate broccoli. I hate it dipped in cheese. I hate it with ranch. I hate it stir-fried. I hate it deep fried. It is disgusting.

Did you know that Orthodox Jews will not eat broccoli because they are afraid it will violate their dietary laws? You see, broccoli is well known to have mites living in the top and no matter how much you clean broccoli, there is no guarentee that the mites will wash out.

Did you know that broccoli can interfere with thyroid hormone synthesis? If you or anyone you know has a thyroid problem, you might suggest contacting a doctor before eating any more broccoli.

Have you ever had broccoli go bad in your kitchen? It smells horrible. The place will stink for days. Much worse than a toilet bowl full of sh*t.

What kindof people like broccoli? People like this:


Do you want to be like them? I thought not.

Broccoli is disgusting and I will never be convinced that it has enough healthy benefits to be worthy of eating. Broccoli: I hate you.

And if you have 3 mins:

5/8/06 Celeb of the Week- Mario Lopez

It's Monday and that means its time to spread some hate against another celeb, and this week's target is Mario Lopez. Yes, the Mario Lopez who we all knew and loved as AC Slater from Saved By the Bell.

First, I always hated AC. I found this bio which sums up how I feel about him:

For a character that ran about a deep as a puddle, Slater was by far the deepest one on the entire show. Who can forget his reaction over the loss of his pet chameleon, Artie? Zack and Screech, who were left with the grave duty of watching Artie while Slater was away, somehow goofed up and the stupid lizard died. Normally, a dead chameleon calls for about 30 seconds of grief and maybe an extra toilet flush. Not for Slater. He took it hard. They actually had to have an official funeral for the thing. Note that, for some reason, this funeral took place within the halls of Bayside High School, which the kids seemed to have infinite access to, no matter what time of night it was. (follow the link for more great analysis)

More importantly, lets examine what Mario did post-SBTB.

First he starred in the train-wreck that was the "Greg Louganis Story." Next he graced the small screen as a Bike Cop on "Pacific Blue." More recently he has starred in "Extreme Dodgeball" and "ESPN Hollywood." None of these are what I would call excellent. He always comes across as the same aloof guy from Saved by the Bell. And there are tons of people who love him just because of that show, but I can't stand him.

Mario Lopez: I hate you.

And for your viewing pleasure, Saved by the Bell: Brokeback Style

Trouble With Blogger

Blogspot seems to have f'ed up my formatting. Anyone know how or why my sidebar is so far down the page now? Let me know in the comments if you know how to fix this. I suck at html.

Thanks.

Edit: the problem appears to only be in internet explorer and appears fine in firefox.
So, I suggest you use firefox to view this site.

Just another reason I hate Microsoft.

5/7/06 - Informal E-mailers

One of the problems with the modern ease of e-mail is that many people treat it too casually. Often at work I have received e-mails that were not even spell checked. Heres a tip for anyone reading this who has to e-mail a boss, client, or professor: don't send anything that you wouldn't be comfortable sending in a physical letter.

As some who read this may know, I am currently in law school. Its finals time (I know, making it all the more amazing that I post every day). Here is an e-mail a girl in my class just sent (names have been changed to protect the guilty):
____________________________________
P-Foz,
Just wondering if the 14 page maximus limitus refers to JUST the essay or the whole sha-BANG ..
(sorry about the informality .. I'm still Recovering from my Property exam .. apparently, I only know 1/10th of the law .. )

toodles!
stupid spelling of her name that I can't even think of a way to change it
______________________________________

For those of you wondering, this is not an appropriate way to 1. communicate with a professor and 2. post on a graduate school listserv.

Heres an article from the NY Times discussing how fed up professors are with getting crappy e-mails. I can't blame them. This problem is systematic of a generation that grew up without manners. And I am one of them. We all need to realize that we should tailor our messages to our audiences. You can believe I write differently here than I do in a legal memo.

I send informal emails to my friends all the time. They send informal e-mails to me. Thats fine. But you know what, I expect a little more at school and at work.

Those of you who cannot craft a findly worded email: I hate you

5/6/06 - Bad Movie Remakes


Back to some quality hate.

So the few times I have been watching TV recently, I have been unable to avoid the numerous commercials for "Poseidon." Now, I didn't like the original, but some people did. But why must Hollywood continue to remake movies? Have they truly run out of ideas already? In all honesty, Hollywood has been around for less than a century, there must be a few story-lines left.



They even go so far as to remake bad movies. You would hope that they got them right the second time around; they usually don't.

Did you notice how 2005 was the year of the "small film." "Good Night and Good Luck," "Crash, " and "Brokeback Mountain" are all evidence that the public is interested in well thought, articulate movies.

Instead we are forced to view countless remakes. just to name a few:
- The Italian Job
- Planet of the Apes (I love the original)
- Manhunter
- flight of the phoenix
- Get Carter

Add your own to the list in the comments.

And to you studio executives who keep recycling the same garbage: I hate you.

5/5/06 - Who is running Google? Helman's?

I hate people who don't understand hate. There is no racism or biggotry any where on this site nor will I link to any.

So I attempted to put Google AdSense on this webpage and got denied because I have "sensitive content." I wonder if my excessive use of the word hate triggered this label. Does anyone else think my posts are insensitive? I guess the pro-mayo people got to them.

This type of trigger is ridiculous. I have seen google ads on porno websites. My site does not degrade women as much as those sites do.

Quick, go to google.com and search the word porn. I got two sponsored links at the top of the page: "Free-porn uncensored" and "want free xxx porn?" Which of these is less offensve than my site.

I used to love Google, but now I'm going on stike. No more use of gmail. No more google maps. No more google anything. (this is probably a empty threat, for all my big words, I'm completely hooked on gmail, but everything else ends here)

Google: I hate you and your hypocracy.

5/4/06 - The Fall of Boxing


Quick, name the top 5 boxers in the world. The top 3? The best?

Boxing has fallen into a state of disrepair with numerous unknowns and far toomany belts up for grabs. How they maintain the huge paydays are beyond me. I know few people who order the pay-per-views anymore.

The funny part is that I was once a huge fight fan. I loved the term the "sweet science" and I certainly loved Mike Tyson's Punch Out as kid. I understood boxing to be something more than a primal display of manhood. There was strategy and determination. And, sometimes the underdog won.

But, the world of boxing has dissapated and I hate that. Like many other sports it became too commercial for its own good. I doubt it will ever become mainstream again. Did you know there was a time in American history when boxing was among the most popular sports in America. I highly suggest the documentary Unforgetable Blackness. It's the tale of Jack Johnson, perhaps the greatest boxing story ever told as he over came racism in this country. Another documentary worth checking out is When We Were Kings, the true story of the Rumble in the Jungle. Both of these documentaries illustrate a time when boxing was great. Oh, how it was fallen.

Those of you who ruined boxing with huge paydays and corporate sellouts: I hate you.

5/3/06 - Bonus: I Hate Mayo



I encourage everyone to check out this website: www.nomayo.com

As I have stated before, I hate mayo, and this site captures my hate well.

Enjoy!

5/3/06 - Bed Bath & Beyond


I have may gripes with Bed Bath and Beyond and have come to hate them and their coupons. Don't get me wrong, I love a good deal, but enough is enough. I receive atleast three of these coupons a week. Why don't they just make the entire store 20% off? Funny enough, you don't even have to have a coupon with you to get a discount. Just smile at the person working the register and tell them you forgot it at home. 9 times out of 10 they will give you the discount anyways

Annoyingly, these coupons cannot be used online. Why? Wouldn't it actually be better for them to offer the discounts online where overhead is lower? To my knowledge they are the only major retailer that does not offer discounts online.

Finally, the quality of the staff there is generally poor. I went to buy a wedding present (because I'm cheap and could get 20% off). So I go to the counter,with the registry with me so that it can be checked off. The guy rings up and goes to leave. You would think they would offer me a box for a wedding present. No? So I ask the guy for a box and he hands me two parts that don't even fit together. Finally, I find a woman (sorry to be sexist) that works there and she boxes it up for me and ties a pretty bow. I will admit I have no idea how to tie a bow.

BB&B: I hate you, please stop sending me coupons.

ps. I know its contradictory that I still shopped there. I promise to try and refrain from BB&B from now on. However, in this case I think its ok, because I was buying an item on a wedding registry and I don't choose where my friends register.

P.P.S. I had to repost this item. Sorry to lose your comment Bill.

5/2/06 - You've Got Gold

Truth be told, the Daily Hater enjoys a few television shows. One such show is HBO's Entourage. And just like Ari Gold, the Daily Hater goes to the Playboy Mansion, Strip Clubs, Whore Houses; I go where the meetings are.

Enjoy the following Best of Ari Gold

05/02/06 - Luddites

Luddites might not be a term everyone is familiar with, and no this is not a form of religious hate.

Lud·dite n.
One who opposes technical or technological change.
[After Ned Ludd, an English laborer who was supposed to have destroyed weaving machinery around 1779.]

I have come across tow primary forms of luddites who have inspired hate in me.

The first is the more reprehensible of the two. My great-uncle visits a small doctor's office. This office does not have a single computer in the office and it is questionable if they have a fax machine. How can a modern healthcare provider operate like this? The most annoying aspect for the patient is that he or she cannot get electronic referrals. I'm sure there are many other applications for computers in doctor's offices. What they are I'm not sure. Please let me know in the comments if you do. Regardless, I'm pretty sure all offices should have atleast one computer these days.

The second is a slightly more personal gripe. I hate that one friend who refuses to get a cell phone. He doesn't refuse to get a phone because he can't afford it or because he is afraid of it. Rather he just chooses not to be in touch with the world. He's not worried about people being able to find him. I guess its nice in an antiquated kindof way, but please join the 21st century.

All of you luddites out there: I hate you.

5/1/06 - Bonus: Nut Grab

Bonus hate on Reggie Evans of the Denver Nuggets

05/01/06 - Celeb of the Week - WIlmer Valderrama

It's Monday, and that means its time to announce another celebrity that I hate. I didn't come to hate this week's nomineee until recently. He's always been a geeky, slightly annoying actor but nothing that inspired hate. Then Wilmer Valderama introduced the world to "Yo Momma" on MTV. The show is horrible. But, the worst part is the end when he announces the winner. He proceeds to say, "One thousand dollars of cash money." I hate his line. Heres a 3 second video of him saying it:




Take a look at his IMDB page: http://imdb.com/name/nm0005519/ He's done nothing of value.

Perhaps his only redeeming value is that he dated and nailed a few hot chicks. Well, that was enough to keep him off the hate list before Yo Momma, but now I officially hate him.

Wilmer Valderrama: I hate you.

P.S. I don't like the show, but here's Wilmer getting Punk'd
