Dr Pepper needs a new web host. I tried getting through for several hours minutes on Sunday to no avail. So the offer was extended, and now I get this, crappy availability on a crappy Windows server. Lame!
Advanced Global Personality Test Results
Are you watching this trash? I admit it, I am. I’m watching it and laughing. Because not only does MTV frequently hunt down the most sterotypical angry black males aged 18-26 and place them in volatile situations thus portraying them as gangsters ready-to-bud, they now have shown the women of RR and RW to be completely…well…..women.
The scoring on this show is just plain stupid. First off, only one person has to do well. Frequently, the men did well in competitions and the women did poorly, only to have one competitor, usually Ruthie or Ellen, do extremely well. Then, pretty boy Johnny Mosely hangs the trophy along with the completely worthless “Ion Lifesaver” to the women. Either way, the women have behaved in a completely catty and bitchy way, and consequently, have lost about 5 “battles” in a row. The second thing that sucks about the scoring is that we, as audience members, have no clue how the score is actually distributed. We are told – the winner gets 51 points and the loser gets 26 points. How they arrive at the numbers in the middle is completely a mystery.
But this is likely because this is not about the competition. That’s just distraction from the real plot, which is that anytime you take
normal oversexed, drunken, hyperopinionated, whiners and pamper them like MTV does, they bitch and whine and sleep together and fight like little babies. That, friends, is good TV.
Why do I keep watching this tripe? Why have I barely ever missed an episode of RR or RW since their inception in the early 90s? Because I’m a sucker for this shit. And so are you. And so is everyone.
God, we’re pathetic.
Didja watch Joe Millionaire? C’mon, no one’s around. You can admit it. I watched. I was pretty happy with the whole thing too. That is, until the second to last episode, where they jerked us off by giving us an hour of bullshit with no satisfaction. They gave us a show devoid of substance and worth. An hour of my life I’ll never get back.
Then they creatively editted the finale, which I nearly didn’t watch out of protest (yeah, right). The damned thing completely points you every which way but the right way. I get the distinct feeling they didn’t show us “the truth.” Instead, they purposely showed us excerpts that intentionally deceived us.
On top of that, they hyped the twist to the point that it was a let down rather than a surprise. “The twist” was so heavily hyped I felt they needed to give him the entire 50 MILLION they claimed he had to really impress me. FOX – you dropped the ball on this one.
On the other hand, 24 is now the coolest show on TV, so I won’t be tuning out just yet…
Somebody needs to beat me up. I saw an ad for the new Real World: Las Vegas. I am hopelessly addicted to this show. I’ve seen every episode of every season (except London…lame!), and I can’t stop. I’m not so voyeuristic, I just get addicted really quickly. What is it about these kids?
I always thought they should’ve put cameras in my fraternity house. Surely, a Real World: JMU could have interested people. Yeah, we did a lot more drinking and a lot less arguing about racism and homosexuality, but we had fun. Plus, I’d like to see the kids on Real World get together for a spirited game of “Asshole.” Show America how twenty-somethings really live, I say, don’t show them the ridiculous filtered nuttiness of a few random, sheltered schmucks from Iowa. Oh well… just my thoughts.
Most of you know that I work for the Government. What you may not know is that, even though I get frustrated as an employee, I have recently gotten very upset as a taxpayer. Nothing is upsetting me more than this stupid contract called NMCI.
NMCI is the Navy/Marine Corps Intranet, a great idea on paper but utter shite in reality. In an effort to link the armed forces, the Navy and Marine Corps awarded a 6 billion dollar plus contract to the (completely unprepared) EDS. The Information Strike Force, hereafter referred to as the morons, simply don’t know what the hell they’re doing. They are doing things like replacing new hardware with old hardware that they actually know how to use. They are planning to “upgrade” our 12 million dollar cat 6 infrastructure to cat 5 (ungeeked: NOT an upgrade), and they are charging us — and taxpayers, mind you — an obscene amount of money. For God’s sake, installing the Flash plugin to your browser is going to cost about $125! What in the hell?
Some recently retired Admiral better be smoking a cigar and sitting on serious cash in a Cayman bank account, because otherwise, we got raped. Frustration!
