I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU THINK. I'M JUST GOING TO SAY IT.

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

Anymore?


No, isn't this the slightly more correct way of using "anymore"? In the negative?

"Everyone looks the same anymore." = AFFIRMATIVE = WRONG
"The show is not worth watching anymore." = NEGATIVE = OKAY

Sure, it might be prettier to say "any longer," but it's in the negative that I've always thought "anymore" was to be used.

I was just getting all grammevial on the Everybody Looks The Same Anymore thread's ass and wondering when anymore started to mean now.
Anymore is being squeezed dry with overuse!
It means almost too much anymore!

America, you had your chance and you blew it.
If Sanjaya had won, Simon would have quit.
Now we must suffer through MORE boring miasmas of kids who can't find a melody arbitrarily running through note after note.
