Voices I DON’T Want In My Brain

A lot of things that I have on tap to write about in the next few days. I haven’t been regular in a long time, for my blog writing I mean. Many reasons for this but regardless, I am going to try to get back to it. Before I digress to much on the topic, most of you know I have been home for the last month due to poor employment choices by others than myself. This has been great because the day after I was fired, my wife had our baby boy Alex. (I know, boring back story but once in a while there is a new reader or two)

It has been nice being home with the wife and family as it hasn’t made me stir crazy not working. The bad part is that during the day, I have to watch all the shows that Mrs. Voices DVRs that she doesn’t normally make me watch at night. Right now, I am suffering through Smash. I am allowing this because I am sitting here writing this post instead of watching it. Anywho, that isn’t what I am here for.

The show before Smash that I had to watch was, The Voice. Now, I have never been a fan of any of these reality singing, so called “talent” shows. I think the majority of them are fake, bloated, advertising whores that have no interest in the competitors well being at all. I also have a lot of other feelings about them too. On this one in particular though, I feel that most of the competitors are hacks. The “judges” seem to pick singers to “save” that are the worst. Of course, I don’t see how the judges have any room to talk or judge talent. Adam Levine … I just don’t even know what to say about him. I just don’t like him. He rubs me the wrong way and he should just admit that he likes those that aren’t women. CeeLo … he his a Weeble with arms who thinks that he is Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Christina Arugala … apparently was so upset about being the same size as CeeLo that she starved herself between seasons, got a boob job and bought a new ass from the Kardashian collection at Kmart. She doesn’t wear anything that doesn’t show off her grand Tetons. Blake Shelton … what can I say about him. He is the biggest problem with this show.

I am way getting away from my original intent. There was one singer on this show that annoyed the hell out of me. She didn’t just sing with a southern accent, she missed pronounced words. “River” became “Roiver”, “time” became “toim” etc. etc. I HATE that. I would rather hear “aks” than here one of these redneck, ex-toddler in tiara, one name, no talent, not even good enough to get on “The Soup” hick speak for 30 seconds. I just lost the 3 redneck readers I had but that is the way it goes.

That is my vent for the day. Hopefully I will find a job soon and I will be able to go back to watching the bliss of COPS on demand while the Mrs. is watching these abhorrences.

Today In The Headlines. THIS Is News?

Posted in Nonsense, Wacky News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 20, 2011 by Bob

I like to know what is going on in the world. I listen to news/talk radio and I read a number of newspapers online and various other news sources. Some days, I can actually find actual newsworthy stories. Most days however, that is very hard to do. To prove my point, here are a few of the headlines, or featured stories (front page worthy) I have found today in various places. I am not going to say WHERE I found these as I do not want to sully the reputation of any news agency. They can do that fine on their own.

Field Museum restrooms judged best in the country. – While I like to know where there are clean restrooms, I don’t really think this is news worthy when there are plenty of other more important things happening.

Lindsay Lohan kicked out of morgue. – WHO CARES ANYMORE?!

Adam Levine demands Fox News stop playing Maroon 5 – Adam Levine, quit being such a bitchy little girl. I am sure you don’t complain when the royalty checks come and return the money because it was from someone who you didn’t want to use your song. If the song is in the free domain, then you have no right to ask anyone to stop playing it. I understand it is Fox but still … grow up.

Ali Fedotowsky calls off the wedding planning.  – Who?

Any story about Taylor Swift – She just annoys me.

The above stories are examples of things that have absolutely no bearing on my life, will not make me a more self aware individual and I will not have a void in my life or my knowledge of the world if I had never even read them.

I don’t want to shed a bad light on all news though. There were some stories today that had merit. Jon Bon Jovi opening a soup kitchen. The coverage of the animals in Ohio. Qaddafi being killed. I don’t need to know that Carla Bruni-Sarkozy named her daughter Giulia. Is this going to help the French be less jerky toward Americans? I don’t think so. Tell me the price of oil is rising, tell me the economy is getting better, tell me that there is a gunman running around my neighborhood and I should stay inside. DON’T tell me “notes from a dragon mom” are bigger than that.

Ok, now that I have sounded like Andy Rooney for the last couple of minutes, I am realizing that this does not really constitute news either. Maybe this is why I never make the “Freshly Pressed” featured page. Oh well. Live and learn…unless the stories are all fluff.
