Now, I know you're probably thinking that this thread has been done dozens of times, and it has, but only for music. I've never seen a thread about the guilty pleasures people have in areas outside of music, so I decided to make one.

I'll admit that I have an unhealthy obsession with TV infomercials. I've never bought any of the shit they hawk on TV, and never plan to, but I've always found infomercials to have a certain charm to them, albeit a rather hyperreal and sometimes unsettling one.

For example, I recently found out that the king of shit guitars and mediocre fingerstyle easy-listening music, Esteban, is still going strong: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8qr5eoxnhw

For some reason, I derive some sort of pleasure out of watching it. I honestly can't describe why I enjoy infomercials; they just have something about them.

So, Pit, what are some of the things you enjoy doing that you're somewhat embarrassed about?

Watching people, like someone sitting across the room, I like to just watch, see how they're thinking about doing what they're doing, how they do certain things, etc. It creates a lot of awkward moments though.

I'm an avid people-watcher, too. It's best in smaller areas, since you have a rotating cast of characters who enter and exit, and then you have a sort of Greek chorus sometimes.

Yes, I watch people as if I were watching a play. Don't judge me!

Listen in on other people's conversations and see if they're biased, have fake/wrong info, contradicting themselves (this annoys me the most) or are just plain stupid.
Im not embarrased about it though. I would openly say to someone stupid that they sound as if half of their language centre was missing if it was bad enough.

Also I am too a people watcher.

I would only judge you positively, good sir.

I people watch too. I wish I knew more people in person that liked to do it too.

Ever watch someone and have them look at you and realize? And then i can't help but quickly look away and be like >_> <_<


I just continue looking at them and smile. It's usually a girl though

That too, only I tend to formulate opinions of people by doing that, if they are hypocrites I'll certainly avoid them, but if they are saying something noble or true, a lot of times I'll make a friend.

I've never really listened in on a conversation x.X Kinda strikes me as creepy. I just usually look at them and their body language...try to imagine what they're thinking, their stress levels, happiness, confidence level, ect. People act so differently when they don't know that anybody is looking at them.

I used to read my sister's Seventeen magazines without her knowledge. I was just curious what would be in girls' magazines. Back then, I was under the impression that girls had some super-secret stuff they kept from guys. Not really, as it turns out.

...Unless they communicate the classified information telepathically!

I like to flex my legs and look at my thigh and calf muscles. Only because I'm proud of them, but it's so conceited that I always feel guilty.

I used to watch Infomercials all the time as well. The Magic Bullet was my favorite.

Part 1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtpKjgwi4Sc
Part 2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plbRSugctAA

However, my true guilty pleasure is scaring people. I enjoy sneaking up behind them and yelling something. Or, if its my sister, ill play some evil sounded pieces on my guitar or Keyboard and watch her flip out

Magic Bullet was great. I always liked Berman, since he was such a grouchy hung over bastard.

There were apparently two sequels, and in the first one, which was set at a camping trip, Berman and Hazel hooked up.

This is a hilarious review of the original: http://www.infomercial-hell.com/magic-bullet/

What songs do you play on the guitar for the scary? I need tips on what to learn when I get better. Halloween theme is probably great.

The intro section of "Bitches Brew" by Miles Davis is fucking evil. Transcribing it for guitar, however, is probably not an easy task.

Well, my sister really dislikes the song Black Sabbath, so I usually play that.

But, some others work nicely as well.

South of Heaven: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7rpoZE8X8Y

The Bridge in Angel of Death: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6_zsJ8KPP0 (starts at 1:36)

Cremation from King Diamond: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOUZiPaqdv8 (just play the low notes, unless you have 3 arms for whatever reason)

and of course some improve stuff. The blues and minor scale are great places to start, the augmented scale is great too, and I made up my own scale that yields great results (weather its already a legit scale, im not sure), but it goes something like this:

el-------------------------------------------0-2-3
Bl-----------------------------------0-2-3--------
Gl-----------------------------2-3----------------
Dl--------------------0-2-4----------------------
Al----------0-1-2-4------------------------------
El-0-2-3------------------------------------------

I troll people on most websites I go to, aside from UG.

I'm also a people-watcher like a few guys said already.

And I'm a chubby chaser...well, that's not really a guilty pleasure. It's just pleasure.
