People always tell me
“Aren’t they a little old?”
“None of them are pretty/handsome…”
“Why do you like these guys?”
And I would simply smile and say “’cause they’re fun to watch”.
Not because I can’t say anything about them but because I can’t enumerate everything I like about them and expect people to understand me right away.
So I just settle with: “’cause they are funny, and they make me laugh.”
And I laugh at myself. “So what are they now? Comedians?!”
Really, everyone has their own preferences.
I like their songs, I love their imperfect voices, and their smiles that always seems to tell me “This is fun!”.
That may be an act but they do it so well that it effectively cheers me up.
And above all, it’s just that I chose their chemistry and personalities over superficial things such as looks.
Although you might say: “the first thing you notice in a book is the cover and not the plot”, right?
Well, I give you that. That’s why I’m not pushing people to like them.
I want people to discover them on their own time and like them just like how I loved them.
Gradual and long-lasting.
I like them because they shine in their own ways and yet when they are all in one stage they blend so perfectly well.
Not only that, they had taught me a lot of things.
They are so close to reality that it wasn’t hard for me to put myself in their shoes.
I wanted parts of them that I want in myself.
…and that attracted me to them.
They all had tough times, times when they are not selling well, and yet they kept on persevering, they keep on doing new things and outrageous ones at times. In other words: they never gave up, and 12 years later, they are what they are now.
I like them because they made me see things that I lack.
They make me smile and look forward to watching them after a long day of tiring work and stressful real-life obstacles.
I don’t want looks that will fade away after some years.
I want the diverse individual personality they possess that will only keep growing with the years to come.
"They are like rainbows: They have their own colors yet they blend so well."
"I want those rainbows in my life."
They aren’t perfect. I’m not telling anyone that they are better than others.
All I’m saying is that I prefer them over anything else.
It’s my own personal opinion and I’m not pushing anyone to have the same perspective as I do.
