Crap list: update

Crap list additional:

Hallmark - For the worse valentines day commercial. The one where the sweet, handmade gestures of the kid's parents (like cutting the sandwiches into a heart shape) are viewed as inferior to the vastly expensive Hannah Montana valentines day card with recordable sound.

User Fees - Paying a fee to work? What kinda topsy-turvy world is this? It is especially strange that the fee is the same for everyone. Mr CEO pays $3.00 and Fred the cleaner pays $3.00. Doesn't really seem fair to me.

Live Nation - For charging a 33% "ticket fee" for....selling you a ticket. It wouldn't be so bad if there was any other choice but guess what? Their biggest rival just merged with them (ticketmaster) and between them actually own 200 of the biggest venues for music.

Hot list additional:

Bamboo and bamboo products.

Deadspace.

I found your blog while googling to see if anybody else was as irritated by those Hallmark commercials as I am. The expression of discontented envy on the face of the child who got the stickers is particularly vile.

And I just looked it up, and the freaking card is $6.99.

It kinda seems that the user fee is going to pay off the HPD for the massif support they gave him during the elections.
