Pop Culturitis

Oh god, when will the hurting stop?  Who the HELL decided bringing in 40 million Japanese Anime shows which are virtual carbon copies of each other was a good idea?

Seriously, do we really need more shit like Yu Gi Oh: Dueling off a Walker-mounted Dueling disk?  Or Bleach:  More exposition about bullshit attacks while wearing wildly unlikely clothing or hairstyles?

I was just sitting here at home when I saw a commercial for yet another stupid Anime TV show to be shown on saturday morning cartoons.  There's pretty much no difference from the last show they advertised some time back, just different character names and different collectible gadgets they're marketing using the show.  When I was a kid, we did have this sort of thing going on (because seriously, can anyone *really* call Transformers and GI Joe art? ) but it wasn't quite the flood we have these days.  It's like they just stopped trying over there in Japan.  They might as well just stamp "Generic collectible Japanese poo" on the show & on whatever doodad they're offering and have done with it.

Then there's the usual spate of pop singers (Katy Perry, et al. )  Now the big thing is Christina Aguilera (sp?) fucking up on the national anthem.  While it was mildly surprising to me that she fucked it up (isn't she supposed to, I don't know, practice the fucking song first???) I am kinda surprised people are making such a huge deal out of it and getting all offended.  So, she's kinda a fucktard who can't be bothered to do her job correctly.  You folks who are getting all raged out over it should count your blessings, she could have autotuned the fucking thing.

While we're on the subject, what the fuck is the big deal about the superbowl?  The only reason I ever went to any superbowl parties was for the booze and junkfood, I really didn't give a fuck about the game.  I'm fairly sure that's the main attraction for most other folks, but I could be wrong.  Some will say "Oh, it's the big game," but they'll look at you stupidly when you point out that sports like baseball and basketball exist as well. 

Speaking of wrong, anyone reading this actually like that Twilight faggotry?  Seriously, what the hell is the attraction here?  Some dumbass shit-for-brains teeny bopper getting her ass tapped by some 200 year old pedo vampire who happens to look like he's 17?  Other than the logistical questions posed by sex with a vampire, (How does that work, anyway?  His heart isn't beating, so how does his dick get hard?  Does he splint that puppy with an ice cream stick or something? ) why the hell would some teeny bopper girl want to have sex with what is essentially a monster? What happens when she gets a little older and gains a little more perspective?  Oh wait, I forgot, it's written by some dimwitted hack of a writer with less talent than I have in the tip of my cock, so actually trying to apply logic and known human behavior to these characters is pointless.  My bad.

The really creepy thing for me is all these TwiMoms.  The ones who are all batshit crazy for the character Edward(?) .. the fuckin' vampire pedo dude.  Anyhoo, they're virtually ready to bone down on the actor and they seem to see nothing wrong with it.  I wonder if they'd see it that way if it were a bunch of 40 something year old guys wanting to screw a young teenage girl?

And finally, to wrap up this rant, I'd just like to send out a big FUCK YOU to KRZR.  Thanks, guys, for being the only metal station in the valley for like 20 years.  It's too bad you guys pussied out and went totally subscriber based.  Yea, I know, it's probably a business decision, but KRZR never has been any good at adopting newer technologies (witness their website... oh wait, you CAN'T, they fucked that up too. )

Now, I'm stuck listening to a fucking alternative station which is making some sorry ass attempt to play metal music once in a while to offset the complete fail that is modern alternative music.  Jesus fucking christ, people actually pay money for this bullshit?
