What is a guilty pleasure? Basically, it's anything mainstream that is either really cheesy and/or somewhat embarrassing and kinda uncool that, despite your better judgement, you really like or even (secretly) love. Here is a list of some of my favorites; feel free to post some of yours in the comments section.
1. Outback Steakhouse 2.99 Chopped Salad
Crunchy bacon, lettuce, bleu cheese, little vinaigrette on the side...surprisingly good.
The little creature with the acorn -the scrat- makes me laugh every time. Can't wait for the sequel this summer.
3. The O.C.
Thanks to my wife, I'm addicted. Peter Gallagher doesn't get enough credit for the job he does...he's the glue that holds that show together.
Rush, Tool, King Crimson, Emerson, Lake and Palmer...if it has preposterous time signatures, I'm there.
The Mercedes of roll candy.My sweet tooth shows no sign of abating.
6.Avril Levigne-I'm With You
Yeah, it's sappy, but it's a great pop song with an excellent vocal by an underated performer.
Steve Perry's schnozz and hideous wardrobe notwithstanding, this song and its accompanying video rule. I love when Perry crosses his wrists to symbolize the "chains that bind you."(See above)
8.The Surreal Life
The television equivalent of rubbernecking. The spectacle of people so desperately, nakedly in need of attention is oddly compelling.
That's it for now.Here are some of my wife's picks:
13 Going on 30
Cheeseburger Happy Meal
Harry Potter anything
Chick Lit (Weisberger,Bushnell,Sykes,etc.)
