I'm sick of seeing XTREME marketing.

Everywhere I go, everything has got to be aggressive, pissed off, and EXTREME. FUCK YOU! I don't want to eat fucking extreme chocolate, drink, XTREME PISS FLAVORED GATORADE, and eat XTREME ALMONDS.

Argh. In my day, in the 1990's in my day, we had words like radical, mondo, way past cool/gnarly/awesome, and righteous! Now, we dumb it down to one word: XTREME. Kids love being XTREME. Kids love seeing XTREME TV shows, eating XTREME cereal, and playing the new XTREME styled Sonic games which take it up the ass with broken glass.

I DON'T WANT ANYMORE PISSED OFF LOOKING PRODUCTS IN MY ROOM BECAUSE I'M A HAPPY GUY BUT THE PRODUCTS SUCK COCK AND ARE PISSING ME OFF SEE THE CAPITAL LETTERS?!

Say it. I'm fucking sick of everything being pissed off. My keyboard was made in 1999 so it's not XTREME, but my Logitech mouse is. My monitor is June, 1999 but it looks XTREME because it's a Compaq. I only like the XTREME look of my computar machine, but everything else around me looks angry.

I posted "CAPSLOCK!!!1" but it was just a stupid snipe and wasn't really funny.

Sad to say I think it's going to get worse before it gets better. The new trend seems to be finding ways to make XTREME even worse sounding than it already is. I've seen X-TREEM, EkSTREAM, XTREMELY BAD, and, my personal favorite, EEEXTREEEMEEE.

No shit.

Now we have XTREME deoderant? It's fucking deoderant. I wipe it under my arm in the hopes that I won't get stinky. The fuck is so XTREME about that?

Or XTREME toothpaste. It's fucking chalk dust in a sweetened past. Explain how that could be XTREME.

You know I am just sick of Marketing period. I am tired of stuff being shoved down my throat, because It works, and it is a proven fact that the more a human hears and especially sees something, the more they will believe it. I am sick of american media. I am sick of toothpick WHORES on TV showing me fucking lose wieght tablets, and kids like Lindsy Lohan suddenly looking toothpick thin because that is what the american media wants. Worst of all, I am sick of FALLING for it. I buy tide and downy specifically for my laundry...not because it is the best, but because it is what I have always done and what I always see. I am sick of thinking that I have to get a new car soon because everyone else has one because that is what is on TV. I am sick of my kids thinking they are not as cool as other kids because they dont HAVE everything the other kids have. yes my car is old. yes it is emberassing. No i can not buy you a hundred dollar power ranger robot because I am broke.

Marketing preys on parents and children. Extreme preys on the younger generation. Its bullshit. All of it.

odd my compaq isnt extreme looking... looks like any other laptop really... Though I am rather sick of all these gay space age sneaker designs.. I really dont want to wear some sneaker that looks like rejected costume designs from lost in space... or have a 12 inch thick soul on it, or some kind of gelatinous glow in the dark alien semen goo in it that is marketed as giving you unholy basketball abilities.. I personally like a good old pair of regular sneakers as they were in the late 80's to mid 90's... The only brand I ever see that keeps to the regular design anymore is sketchers...

It's a phase. Get over it. Soon there will be a different word or phrase and that'll probobly piss u off too. Do you remember "Just do it."? That was from "your day" everything comes in circles. We're to the '80's again with the fashions, so it's not long until the '90's come back too.

But I can't wait until Bush's second term is over in 2008 :(.

My "new" 486 computer looks so happy, like it's smiling. And it has a digital display to let everyone know it is currently running at "66MHz."

That's vintage stuff. That machine was made around '93 or '94 by a guy I know. And it looks so pretty! And the casing is clearly generic! Even generic cases look "XTREME" today! Slap on a window and headlights and create pissed off looking curves and it's "XTREME!"

And then on top of it are my Super Nintendo and Sega Dreamcast - they're happy too!

NO MORE "XTREME" BULLSHIT. STOP. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, STOP.

I had some extreme pudding the other day.

I think it was "xplosive chocolate" or something like that.

The lack of the "E" in "explosive" made it even more intense.

I'm editing this post to avoid double posting and pissing everybody off.

I was looking around, and saw This, which I figured kinda related to the topic.
It should be noted that in addition to being cheap-ass cereals, Marshmallow Magic and Treasure Puffs are also both pretty good euphemisms for "boobies."
