Get a Life Or Kill Yourself

What is this blog about? Mostly media and pop culture. Film; television; comic books; all that good stuff. Sometimes you will even see entries about the people involved in production of all this.

However, what you will never see here is gossip. So, here is an entry about the type of people who seek gossip.

Do you care about the Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie/Jennifer Aniston triangle? Then you're an idiot.

Do you care about who Paris Hilton is snorting coke with? Shut the hell up.

Does Bristol Palin's on again, off again with her Playgirl Baby Daddy just fascinate you? I hope you fall into a bucket of AIDS and crack your head open.

Does Miley Cyrus' parents getting a divorce interest you at all? KILL YOURSELF!

None of this is news. None of this is even entertainment news. And the fact that this shit sells is a stain on our society. What does it say about us as a culture that the Enquirer sells more copies than Time Magazine?

Every time I am on line at the supermarket, and I see one of these soccer moms reading the tabloids intently to find out who Kim Kardasian is sleeping with, I want to take a sledgehammer to their fucking skull and end them.

Get a fucking life, or commit suicide.

I don't think the personal lives of celebrities and their families are our business anymore than the personal lives of your neighbors down the street, or a small random family in Delaware. Is the personal life of your mailman something you follow?

If one is going to follow news regularly, I kindly suggest you follow local, state, national, and global politics. The kind of things that influence and directly affect all of our lives. We live in a world where celebrity gossip magazines outsell Time Magazine, and I am appalled by that fact.

If the lives of people doing "high profile" projects interest you, then instead of following the personal life of Snooki,* why don't you donate some money to soldiers fighting oversees? Each and every single one of them is more important than any of these poor excuses for entertainers.

Get a life, or kill yourself!

* By the way, I don't actually know who or what Snooki is, and I take great pride in that.
