Escape From Reality

Up until now the majority of my posts have been about reality TV shows.  I find myself escaping my own reality by watching an alternate one on TV.   Now I find myself with a new problem.  These alternate realities have become hostile and boring.

 First take a look at DWTS.  The last two episodes we have seen fighting between the judges, fighting between the stars and their professional partners, not to mention some of the worst dance ever (Kate Gosselin go home!).   Buzz Aldrin, a hero from another time and place, goes home, but Kate the “scary bitch from hell” remains.

 Now let’s look at AI.   We have a group of uninteresting kids who for the most part can’t sing.  How did they get selected in the first place?  We have Tim Urban hanging in there because nobody really cares enough to vote for the others.   We have bad advice from the judges throwing some contestants like Didi off their game and into elimination.  And we have some weird dynamics between Simon, Kara and Ryan.  First off Kara needs to quit kissing Simons ass on the air.   We also need to quit promoting her “finds” as guests on the results show.  And never ever ever let her write the finally song again.  Second, Ryan needs to get over himself.  Yes I said Ryan not Simon.  We know who Simon is and we expect his behavior week after week.  And he is usually right about the contestants.    We don’t know who Ryan is…..  It makes for some odd TV to see Ellen who is comfortable enough with who she is to tell the world, be on the same show as Ryan who appears to be very immature and afraid.  I won’t say he is gay…..we don’t need to be unfairly labeling people, but the producers should not be throwing this question in our faces each week with the banter between Ryan and Simon either.   If he isn’t gay let it go!   If he is gay, shame on him for not having the guts to stand up for himself.  Either way it is an affront to gays and the human rights movement.

Okay so now that I have tired to put some reality back into reality…..lets hope for some entertainment this week.

How quickly I am bored

Last nights AI, even on DVR, was extremely boring.  As a result I found my self on Farmville and forgetting to fast forward.

Farmville is a simple little game on Facebook, in case you have been out of touch with the world recently.  I started playing because my step-son, his girl friend, and my granddaughters all play and needed neighbors.   Now the game consumes a lot of my free time.

 Here is a link to fellow blogger who also has wasted time on this game:
