Many of us English monoglots admire greatly the non-English speakers' ability to write in our language. There is one misspelling, however, that is becoming the norm in CR: loose for lose. "Loose", with two os means the opposite of tight. E.g., my lens cap is loose and sometimes falls off. The verb you use when you can't find something is "lose", with one o. E.g., I will lose my lens cap if it becomes loose and falls off.
My own complaints are from a broader pop culture context. I cannot stand misuse of "to" and "too". Or how about referring to one lady as a "women". Or how about things that "rock" (usually shoes, a skirt, or a purse)...instead of things that should rock
, like music?
I also absolutely hate all the new Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry songs. I really don't think it's just me. Their voices have gotten much worse, and the songs themselves are grotesque to the point of absurdity. Miley's voice sounds like a bullfrog got drunk and then heavily hung over the next morning, and is now attempting to do its best impression of Stevie Nicks, after Nicks smokes an entire field of tobacco...and then Nicks herself is for some insane reason...trying to attempt to mate with a bullfrog. Imagine such a scenario if you will!
I can see why neither one of them can keep a man for very long! A woman's voice needs to be at least somewhat
pleasant to listen to on a day-to-day basis! Yet we are barraged with their music. ENOUGH...bring back "hair metal"..."new wave"..."punk"...even "grunge rock" at its most depressing...or EVEN PURE 70's DISCO would be far better than the current, complete crap
the kids listen to today. Don't even get me started on "country" or "rap"...!! And as much as Madonna is widely ridiculed now, in her prime, her music was far better than the best of the best music, since 2000 or so. At least she worked hard (in between escapades with the likes of dennis rodman-types), and co-wrote much of her own music. Perry and Miley obviously had a lot of input on writing their own current material, because it sucks! Their earlier hits apparently had much stronger influence from songwriters who knew what they were doing.
At least someone like "Ke$ha" admits that she and her family are "bat$*** crazy", capitalizes on it, and doesn't pretend her style is the "norm". But what's scary is, it kind of is becoming the norm! What sort of Halloween costume would Ke$ha wear? Boggles the mind.
