Disney, Beer & My Reputation

Last night I watched the Disney movie, Frozen on recommendation from my girlfriend and her friends. Y'all know me, and y'all know that I usually like more adult comedies and gangster movies, but it's not all. That's just what my reputation says as you know I'm an angry bastard and obviously I have Samuel L Jackson's "Bad Motherfucker" wallet from Pulp Fiction. I like Disney movies though, and I REALLY, I mean REALLY enjoyed Frozen. The story and the songs were incredibly well written, with great lyrics, vocalists and a simply stunning score. Right now, I just can't stop listening to the soundtrack. It's phenomenal.

My reputation gives this image that I can't enjoy anything visual that doesn't involve someone getting killed, or exploited in a hilarious way. What you know about me is wrong. I do actually have a heart and I was incredibly touched by Frozen.

Obviously, my love for a movie that was created with little girls in mind was never going to be the whole point of this blog, but it's a good starting point.

Recently I've written not one, but two blogs about how I'm bored of beer and need to expand my horizons both with booze and with a lack of booze and both of those things are going quite well but some people just can't let go of my reputation and it's upsetting.

I've said on multiple occasions that I need a break from the beer world as it was all getting too intense, but seemingly the hints that were about as subtle as a sledgehammer didn't fucking get through.

Recently I've had to tell about 3 people to shut the fuck up because all they do is send me texts or Facebook messages about beer... intense discussion... listing all of the beers they've had... the pubs they've been to... the places they're going. It's not like the posts I wrote were even remotely jokey about taking a step back. I seriously meant it.

I'm more than happy to join in on a discussion on twitter but it all gets too much and I can't deal with it. It upsets me that so many people see me as nothing more than that angry guy who drinks a lot of beer. I'm an actual fucking human, with an actual fucking life beyond beer.

All I'm saying is that I'd quite like people to try getting to know me and not the soul destroying reputation I have crafted for myself.

Now, as it's International Beer Day or some such bollocks, I'm going to have a nice quiet night drinking wine with my girlfriend while listening to the Frozen soundtrack.
