"...wise men wonder while strong men die..."

I was watching an interesting piece on the seven wonders of the world yesterday on my television set. I love the cool shit you can learn on Discovery, TLC, The Science Channel, and The History Channel.. it's like PBS, but with better produced or newer shows. It's one of the few things that make T.V. worth watching. Can I stomach through American Idol? Can I force myself to watch a daytime soap? Not at all.. it's the same reason I don't eat mayonnaise... I can feel myself getting fatter doing so.. same thing with crappy low-brow pointless shows on the tube.. I can feel myself getting dumber just by watching them. Will I watch something entertaining? Sure, especially if it's well written and good. I can admire Futurama, Simpsons, and Family Guy. I think that Damon Wayans is the funniest Wayans brother, hands down. I guess I have a sore spot for good, well written and/or performed comedy. George Carlin will always be king. Gone are Phil Hartman, John Candy, and even Chris Farley who are all guys that I enjoyed watching growing up. Sometimes I wonder the what-ifs... what if Kurt Cobain, Elvis, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, and Freddie Mercury were alive today... would they have colaborated on some things? It's always a shame when good or serious talent falls into an untimely demise. Sometimes I'm puzzled by what is deemed talented or great. Britney Spears... not very intelligent... doesn't write her own songs... is a mediocre singer and is not really that special in the looks department either... so how did she become a mega-star? It's a complete insult to those who are truly talented... those who may write, sing, AND play instruments. That's admirable.. respectable.. and results in better music overall. Spicolli thinks that I should run for a small political seat in St. Bernard.. but I fear that my political and social views would be looked down upon in my hometown.. they are more conservative and backwards than most of the country... or maybe more of the country is like Chalmette than I tend to believe or have seen. I can only hope to win them over with logic and reasoning.... maybe convince them that my views are based upon fairness and what's right for all... not a majority or a minority. But that won't fly.. people tend to want theirs and always at the expense of someone else. That's life and that's America.

I accidentally stumbled across this here site and was appalled by this Reese raver dissing our precious Britney. Dude, get a life; Britney reigns supreme.

Kentwood is a trailer park that grew to the size of a town. Britney Spears is an insultingly ignorant, yet accurate representation of the state of Louisiana's young women.

I hate your liberal views, but I still love you!
