I GOT NOTHIN’
I’m sitting here looking at the blank page wondering what to write about and nothing is coming to mind. Not a funeral story, not a Hollywood story, not even a funny anecdote about some moron celebrity. And yet, I feel a pressure to write because I know I have “followers,” which means you, readers.
Then I start thinking about how Jesus had followers, but not the internet, so he had a very small following (12 wasn’t it?). But as we know, his following became huge as the years went on and he’s still got plenty of them, even after all these years. I think his popularity exploded once people started hearing about how he changed water into wine. With that ability, Jesus didn’t need to make a sex tape!
Now my dilemma is should I write about Jesus or making sex tapes?
Sex tapes. But here’s why. Because it makes me absolutely sick that the media and the entertainment business are rewarding slutty and stupid behavior. It chaps my ass raw that so many talented people I know struggle financially and yet, Kim Kardashian, who is famous because of a sex tape among other stupid decisions, is getting ready to make millions from having a bastard child! (Nothing against unwed couples, I just wanted to call her baby a bastard). And some dumb teenager who had reality show about being pregnant at 16 just sold her sex tape for a million dollars and is now getting a new TV show where she will make even more money. You need absolutely no talent anymore to be on TV and make a shit ton of money, just ask Elizabeth Hasselbeck, who was on that show Survivor and now she’s getting paid plenty to contribute her stupid, conservative, religious crap on The View. Do you see how wrong it is? Although The View is wrong no matter who’s on it.
The real problem isn’t Jesus though or even Elizabeth Hasselbeck, even though I do consider her a societal problem, it’s that reality TV has taken over, and a majority of it is shit, and Jesus wouldn’t like reality TV….except for maybe “America’s Got Talent” because we all know Jesus likes America better than all the other countries. But aside from that, it has put real writers and actors out of work while Honey Boo Boo is making $20,000 an episode. The mother on that show has dirt in the fat creases in her neck! You would think someone making $20,000 per episode might put some soap on the shopping list.
Keeping Up With the Kardashians, The Real Houswives of Beverly Hills, Orange County, Atlanta, New Jersey, Miami, The Jersey Shore, Teen Mom, The Bachelor (which you know I’m guilty of but can’t resist the crying girls), The Bachelorette, The Hills….and the list goes on and on. But the point I’m making is that Jesus wouldn’t like this. He would not want dumb sluts (male or female) financially rewarded. He never said that in the Bible, but I just know that. I don’t think Jesus had anything against sluts, after all, he was friendly with Mary Magdalene, the rumored repentant prostitute, but he wouldn’t like reality TV stars because they are partly what’s wrong with society and I think we can all agree that the TV executives will be going straight to hell for this.
But…America keeps watching it, all of it! So who’s fault is it? We have to blame someone! Is it the TV executives playing on the willing-to-swallow-anything society, or is it our dumbed-down society saying “give us more idiots to watch so we can feel about our lives”? And what’s worse, is that it’s here to stay. It’s inexpensive to make and the profits are through the roof without having to pay actors or writers, so sadly, it’s not going away.
But I do think if Jesus walking around today, he would probably say “Forgive them Lord, for they know not what they do…..no seriously, they really don’t. Just look at THEM!” Yes, that’s what he would say!
Have a nice day!
P.S. I had nothing to write about and the next thing I know, I’m ranting about rich, fat people with dirt in their neck…and Jesus! I hope people don’t start to think I’m religious 😀
