Standard

Watching/listening tv last night and found myself shaking my head quite a bit.  Another one of those instances where I find myself thinking that I really was born too late in time.  

KathyLee and Hoda yesterday covered the MET thing from the night before, blanking on what it was actually called.  Seeing video and photos of the “celebrities”.  I understand that weird seems to be what many are going for but I don’t get it.  Why?  One more event for these people of whom so many don’t understand the ordinary man and woman. Why these God awful get-ups?  Seeing a handful of the interviews I was shocked at how arrogant some of these people were.  

Recently, well not really recently, not all that long ago I decided I was done with supporting Hollywood by not going to the theater to watch any movies.  One reason is that it seems like there are so few of what I would call “good movies” being made, just more of the same old mindless plots that we tend to not have enjoyed at the end.  

The main reason if that so many actors/actresses have made such fuss, temper tantrums or whatever you’d call it, over things where they seem to feel like they know all and we are supposed to listen and do as they say, like in politics.  If I’ve seen you saying people who disagree with you are wrong, well, I have no want to watch you do anything.  

Years ago I stopped watching anything Jim Carrey, can’t see him and not remember his trashing Charleton Heston in that horrible video he made.  There are a number of these people who have gone so over the top that I can’t sit and watch or listen to their music without thinking of their trashing people who think and/or live the way I do.  

I get so angry at times watching video of people like Madonna, Ashley Judd, Rosie O’Donnell, Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Shumer, ect., who seem to feel that their thought processes are the only right ones and alienate so many people.  It’s gotten to where my blood pressure rises so much watching and listening that I have to shut it off. I honestly feel as though these people are contributing to the increasing divide happening in our country…I’m a firm believer of, you know, no one is 100% right or wrong and GOD is the only one to say what is right or wrong…everyone is different, having a difference of opinion is a good thing.  What they hell happened to working together to come to a middle ground?  

Then there’s the Bill O’Reilly, Jesse Watters and the media thing.  So glad we have the freedom of speech and the right of being innocent until being proven guilty.  I’d love to watch the news or political shows again and not be able to tell which side of the table the reporter sat on. I’d love to just watch the news and see what has happened in the world without the reporters take on whether or not they agree or disagree or like or not like the person they are reporting on.  Tired of the calling to be fired or boycotted each time someone says something others don’t agree with.  What the f*^k has happened to our country?

It’s time like this I wish I were better at words, more eloquent.    

Okay, now that I’ve raised my blood pressure…  

My beautiful Oma would be 99 today if she were still with us, lost her nine years ago this past March.  Grew up being told today was a National Holiday!  Happy Heavenly Birthday Old Ma!  Hugs and Mooches!

This Old Boy’s birthday is today too.  Another one of those, where did the years go kind of moments.  Have known Kirk for 28 years, next month will be 28 years since our first date.  Definitely doesn’t feel like 28 years.

Peace!

  1. I’ve lost track of films since sometime in the late 80s. I still can point out actors from the 70s and before, but current ones seem to be a bit unknown to me. Since I don’t know who these people are, then what a bunch of unknown celebrities do, or don’t do, doesn’t affect me that much, which allows me to do other more important things in this life. While I am alive.

    • Wish I could just shut off. Am able to shut off on the weekends, unless something big is going on I won’t look at any news or political anything. Really just wish the big mouths would chill out and get back to doing their jobs. Watched a biography on Clark Gable yesterday, we could use a few guys like in those days again.
