Still no fans, eh? This thing is becoming my journal, so be it, another night, another entry:
I’ve come to the conclusion that apparently my ability to talk to women is beneficial TO OTHER PEOPLE. A friend recently borrowed a quote of mine and to my surprise, what didn’t work for me, did wonders for him! I’m happy for his success and wish him nothing but the best, but how in the hell did I pull that off? I’m guessing the outward appearance is what put him over the top, but dammit if I’m not a little bit confused about how he got the digits and I didn’t. Also to my surprise, two of my other friends have tried internet dating and taken to it like a fish to water (pun intended). I guess I can’t complain about the site not working, I guess it just doesn’t work for me.
I really need the economy to start booming because I want to quit my job so bad. The more I see what they’re trying to turn TSA into, the less I want to be a part of it. You guys think airport security sucks now? Give it a year, even though the potential for a terrorist attack has been greatly diminished, they’re still thinking of ways to make the airport traveling experience suck.
Really tired of this Jeremy Lin nonsense. He’s better than what people expected, but he’s no superstar, he’s more flavor of the month than anything else. Please don’t make him into the basketball version of Tim Tebow, then I’d really have to hate him. Besides, lets wait until Carmelo gets back before we decide that he’s the Asian chosen one, because I truly believe you will see a dip in his numbers when he has to share the ball with Melo.
I can’t wait for Mass Effect 3 to come out, I have a feeling that between that, NBA 2K12, and Skyrim my spring is going to be booked solid. March 6, ladies and gentlemen, hopefully it doesn’t disappoint.
I recently started re-watching The X Files and I have to admit, I enjoy this series more than most current television series out. I think that goes to a bigger point, in a recent discussion among friends I lamented that I missed old television. I miss the old The Real World, before it got super fake and commercialized. I miss Road Rules, Daria, Aeon Flux, I even miss Total Request Live. In short, I miss the old MTV. When I was growing up, MTV was the perfect escape for a pre-teen to late teen who wished to watch something geared towards them. Shows like the Real World back then had characters that you could actually see as real people, not these tool bags they put on now that are just looking for a platform to try and launch themselves into stardom. Road Rules was actually going places few college students and young adults had been, instead of to just college spring break hot spots and serving as censored version of Girls Gone Wild. Daria was a cartoon that was meant for teenagers and not campy like Beavis and Butthead, even though they were funny in their own right. Even though TRL only showed one minute of each music video in their top ten, many of us have to admit that Carson Daly, Quddus, Lala, and others definitely had their pulse on what was important to teenagers across the country. Lets be honest, to anyone my age, and those a little older and a little younger, if you think about, this current version of MTV sucks in comparison to its predecessor. Jersey Shore is a joke, RJ Berger sucks, and most of the other shows don’t even deserve to be named allowed. I hardly watch TV anymore, but when I do, I don’t even bother turning to MTV.
People are making a lot of noise about Chris Brown performing and receiving a Grammy this year, but what I don’t understand is, if we are a forgiving people, why does it look like women just won’t forgive him? Yes, he was incredibly stupid the night he beat the crap out of Rihanna. Yes, his lack of compassion towards those who didn’t agree with him performing and winning leaves much to be desired. But it happened and he’s kept out of trouble since that night, he performed his community service, he hasn’t run afoul of his probabtion, so leave him alone. I hate that I feel as though I’m defending him, but I feel like this is more related to his skin tone than anything else. Charlie Sheen gets in trouble for drugs, beating women and any other form of trouble, we celebrate him doing a comedy road show about it, but Chris Brown receiving an award for having a successful album and tour is too much for many to stand? What’s the difference? Is it cool because Charlie Sheen was already a bad boy before he got in trouble –again, and Chris Brown had a clean record? If you’re going to congratulate one on his return from his mistake, you can do it for the other.
I think I’m done for tonight, goodnight.
