Children’s books that adults claim are really good
Celebrity news or gossip
And since I hit mid-20s: drugs
stuff that doesn’t have elves in
THIS and films. Even films I’ve seen that I really enjoyed like Miyazaki films, I can’t get away from this weird creepy feeling when I’m watching them.
It’s because when I was little I stumbled across lots of films that I thought were just nice cartoons and then was met with some horrible images. One of them a guy had a corn on the cob shoved up his ass. WHAT? Akira was on the tv and the image of a seeing the life drain from a guys face in that as he bled out was not good. Not at all Uuggghh, there were so many. Bad BAD.
Just waiting for @Ruffers to back me up here.
Genuinely, I don’t get anything from that stuff anymore. Spent a long time studying history and archaeology, both in academia and in my own time, and I remember fucking EVERYTHING. My memory is like a fucking vice and is filled with the horrors of humanity at all times.
If I’m watching or listening to anything I need it to cheer me up, not bring me down.
Actually, and obviously, there’s tons of stuff that puts me off.
Another crime drama about a guy killing young women? Oooh, how different, tell me more.
books that have an endorsement from e.g. Loaded magazine on the back

Goblins? Wizards? Mages? Lutes?

Occasionally come across (fnar) card game penoids playing on stuff like this:

and it’s like… mate even the other card game nerds are looking down their noses at you. Get a fucking grip.
