Stuff You Used to Hate But Now You Like

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Russell Brand - I first saw him on those MTV Awards and he was really annoying and overdid the whole "I'm British and offensive" thing. I didn't like any of the movies he was in. He just struck me as trying too hard too hard to be edgy. Then a couple months ago, i saw him on Conan and he ran the show. He was nonstop and hilarious and lucid and Conan couldn't keep up with him. That one interview was all it took. I saw lots of other interviews with him after that and now he's one of my heroes. I don't agree with a lot of his ideologies but he's very quick and funny and deep.

Spinach - I hated spinach as a kid because we always used to eat it when we were at our poorest so i think it's associated with that. Then Haley's mom made it for us once and now i'm hooked.

Jason Segel - I thought he was annoying and plain until i saw The Five Year Engagement, which was really underrated. Now i like everything he's in.

Judd Apatow - Which brings me to this guy. His movies always struck me as secret chick flicks. Sneak in some raunchy jokes and genitalia references so guys will watch the movies too. Now i like all of his movies. I loved This is 40.

Homeless People - I have personal reasons and a history here but i was very cold and uncaring towards them for years. I remember bitching out this one homeless guy who asked me for money one too many times. I told him he always asks me for money and i always tell him no so why does he keep asking?? and he was speechless after that. I don't know what's changed but now i feel for those guys a little bit. It still bugs me to see capable and lively young men standing on corners pretending like they can't go wait tables or work at Walmart like the rest of us when we're down though. But i give certain homeless people money these days. They have to "earn" it though, like that guy who had a little dog with him.
