I Despise James Blunt

The great majority of posts on Basement.org have dealt with things like RSS, Web 2.0, the Semantic Web and the like. Because of this, I was hesitant to post a rant of any sort. But I couldn’t hold out any longer. I’d exhausted all of my own social circles yet still felt the need to express myself.
I can’t stand James Blunt.
For the unfamiliar, James Blunt is a UK singer/songwriter type that sings mostly ballads. He’s our generations Michael Bolton. Woefully cheesy. Devastatingly sappy. Predictably formulaic. Maybe it’s because his music sounds like a Kodak commercial. Maybe it’s because he’s been featured on a Starbucks compilation CD. I’m not really sure.
I am hoping that this post will help start the healing and extinguish the deep, seething hatred I feel towards James Blunt. I’ll make it through this. My only fear is that there will be others.
There will be others.

    James Blunt is guaranteed to make me change the station every single time, no questions asked. He’s like Rod Stewart only four times worse…
