Double Standards and Other Out-Right Inconsistantcies

Well, well, well. I have always been one to try my damndest to stay consistant and true to me, so I guess it bothers me deeply when others do not. I shouldn't let it get to me, I know that much, but I just can't help it.
Most specifically, when others turn their enjoyment of various things on and off depending on who's around. Or, in some cases to inflate some false sense of high and mighty for people they will in all likelihood never know in any real or meaningful way. Like I said, it bothers me despite my better judgement. I just wish people would admit to enjoying something like Finding Nemo around more people than "safe" people, a.k.a. the folks they saw it with. What the hell is so wrong about enjoying the same things no matter the company you presently keep?
To prove my point... I consider Demolition Man, The Karate Kid, and Robocop some of the best movies of all time! I also believe that U2 gets better with age and that Zooropa and Pop are damn good albums! So there! For whoever wants to read this, friends or otherwise, I have stated facts about my tastes that I'm proud to admit, regardless the company I keep. If you have known me for 15 minutes or 15 years, those truths about me are hereby self-evident!
That's me, in the middle of everything.
