- Musical tastes: I loved their first album. Then they sold out.
- Movie tastes: They don't make anything good. Unless it has subtitles. Except for Lord of the Rings. But I fell in love with Tolkein when I was 3 and first read The Hobbit.
- Art tastes: Representational art with identifiable objects is for the uninitiated and Monet is for Hallmark cards.
- Literary tastes: Why do you suppose only the college presses are printing anything worth reading? Nobody else puts out poetry any more.
Point of information: A misanthrope is someone who despises people. Someone who thinks they are better than everyone else is just a snob.
