(In no particular order) John Peel, moshing, The Clash, pessimism, Belle and Sebastian, DMs, indie kids, John Cusack, Bagpuss, cups of tea, Scottish actors, nonsensical rabbit related catchphrases ("That's the bunny", "I'm not a happy bunny", "Put the bunny back in the box"…), Steve Lamacq, Melody Maker (RIP) and alcoholic beverages
(Mainly bordering on irrational hatred) Daphne and Celeste, male-only pop combos (Westlife, Boyzone, NSync, Shed Seven), indecipherable lyrics (cf. Tindersticks, Bob Dylan, Shaun Ryder), peas, arrogant NME journalists, those unopenable milk carton things and Countdown
(They'll never happen, sigh)
