Here’s A Thought


When people do stupid things to get celebrity-like attention just ignore them. Do not arrest them, unless they actually broke the law. Do not investigate or interview. And no matter what you do do NOT offer them a reality show.

Because we have this obsession with people being morons it’s turning our society into a fucking sideshow! Everyone wants their little piece of fame and it’s taken over society. People now realize that if they can find a way to get attention, like pretending their child was taken away by a balloon, then they can become rich and famous.

Look at all the people who have gotten attention (whether good or bad) by just doing really stupid shit. Like Paris Hilton, Jon and Kate, and Speidi. I’ll admit that I like to read gossip blogs, but these nobodies I really do not care about. The moment I see any of these people or any Kardashians I just skip right by it.

I don’t know if everyone realizes it but there are actually good shows to watch. You know, those shows that involve real writers and actors. I get that it’s a Saturday afternoon and you are bored so you watch a reality show. But on weeknights there is always something better to watch.

So tonight, instead of watching Dancing With The Stars watch How I Met Your Mother or House. Just give it a try, for me. You might surprise yourself 😉

    Amen to that! Over the course of this weekend, I heard about that whole “hot air balloon” incident about ten times!
    Enough already! Everyone involved in that is a jackass and its really not a good idea to validate them with attention!

    Morons like that allow the TV stations to fill air / ad time without the difficulty of actually creating a watchable program.

    The sign that said it is all going to hell in a handbasket was when NBC decided to NOT spend money on dramas and rather produce Jay Leno shows because it is much cheaper… And network TV complains about losing business to cable. WHAT?
