A LITTLE OF THIS AND A LITTLE OF THAT.....
I don't have a lot to say about the goings on in the news lately, so I'll keep my opining short and to the point. The news has been less than interesting barring a few strung out loon celebrities and some unrest in the Middle East. I suppose watching Charlie Sheen is more than any of us could ask, as far as train wrecks are concerned. Thanks for the distraction Chuck, try not to die. We've watched this scene before and won't be shocked at how this will end if you continue down this road. I hope the people around you aren't enabling fools that indulge your self-destructive behavior, but something tells me you aren't in good company. When all is said and done, the voyeur in me can't look away but the mother in me wants to. God bless and get well soon.
I like to have background noise when I shower and do other daily annoyances, so I decided to leave FOX on the idiot box while I do my daily putter. The Glenn Beck show came on and I couldn't help but listen to what seemed to be a hyper-active alarmist who made me want to go buy a tent, generator and a 3 year supply of Diet Coke and escape into the wilderness somewhere. Truly, I was scared. I am not shy about my less than enthusiastic impression of Glenn, but let me explain why I think he is dangerous. Yes, I said and I meant, dangerous....I didn't stammer. Now don't go postal Beck peeps. I don't think Glenn is dangerous in the sense of bombing DC or anything, but he is creating a culture of "let me do your thinking and researching for you." I have spoken to more than one Beck FAN that has asked me the same question more than once as though it was a legitimate reason to follow Glenn religiously. Number 1 was that he has a bigger staff than me and can research things and pass them on to us, the uneducated and retarded viewer. Number 2 was that he was honest and forthcoming in what said research offered to me the ignorant viewer. I stipulate that my job is not to dig deep into the happenings in Washington and beyond, but I'll be damned before I believe everything a buffoon on TV says, I don't care if it's the Easter Bunny speaking. Glenn offers himself as a renaissance man knowing everything from what our founding fathers were thinking, to what is REALLY going on in the Middle East. For the record, Glenn is no professor of life, politics or otherwise and excuse me if I choke while you invoke the Glenn Beck source as though you were quoting the Bible. The information you spew from his show is on its face one sided and yes, slanted. Could it be that he presents to us, the viewer, with the things that support HIS point of view like all the other talking trolls on TV? I encourage all you Beckies to use Google a little more often and stop telling me that he is a one stop shopping mall of knowledge called Glenn Britannica. This is where the danger lies. When you all stop doing your own "research" and forming your own "opinions" is where you lose me. I get the whole time restraints and resources beyond our capabilities act, but always remember ALL MEDIA TYPES LIE AND DISTORT. End. Of. Story. Now don't be a democrat and don't worship Glenn until he earns it or you will be another Kool-aid drinking fool like the Obamakins.
I can't pass up an opportunity to make fun of the Oscars and Oprah Winfrey. First of all I struggled even watching the bloody award show. It could not have been any slower were we watching Madonna put on a corsette. Anne Hathaway and the Spiderman dude sucked lollipops and trust me, there was no tootsie roll in the middle. They were bitten by the NICE bug and made fun of NO ONE. WTF?? Where was Ricky Gervais? Freaking Mary Poppins and Mr. Rodgers were sedatives so powerful you could put Ambien out of business....HOLY SISTER THERESA BATMAN. Thank goodness someone dropped an F bomb and woke me up. Praise the FCC for making that a big effing deal. You saved my effing life.
Oprah couldn't have been a bigger tool. Her uppity accent is so fingers to a chalkboard retarded. Hey Oprah, Mrs. Lovey Howell called and wants off Gilligan's island so she can kick your ass for stealing her voice.
Totally happy that Colin Firth, who is a major HOTTIE, won best actor and The King's Speech won best picture. Academy got it right. Thanks for not pitching lesbian movies about kids who aren't alright as being alright as best in show. You still rock NOT my world but go see the King PEEPS....it is stellar. I love movies about Kings who have to overcome adversity like little people and I like movies where people have to act and act they do and phenomenally so.
