Television


Hiya folks. I know I haven’t written anything in a while, so I thought I’d start a series on people I just can’t find anything redeeming enough about. These are the people who’s good qualities do not exist in my eyes, period, and I blame pretty much everything I hate about them on them themselves. To start off this Tool Shed series, we have Thien Thanh Thi Nguyen, better known by her stage name of Tila Tequila. I can sum up my thoughts about Tila in one word: bucket *.

Tila got her start as a model and has been frequently considered one of the world’s most attractive Asian women as she was the first to claim ‘prestigeous’ titles like being Playboy’s first Asian Cyber Girl of the Month. She then went on to host videos where women strip to music. Her biggest career boost was MySpace, on which she has nearly two million friends. In 2007 MTV gave her a ‘reality’ show called A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila which was unique because both men and women competed to win the heart of the Asian Playboy model. This is where she started to really piss me off.

See, on Tila Tequila’s show she would constantly utter phrases that implied she had to do something wild and challenging because “She’s Tila Tequila,” implying she’s better than pretty much 90% of the population of the world just because she’s got an ocean-sized collection of MySpace friends (I’m at 800 thousand and counting, watch your back liquor girl) and was Cyber Girl of the month. All aboard the Ego Train, its heading straight for the launchpad that connects to the Ego Shuttle. Now she’s back for a second season. Yes, she thought she was in love with whoever it was that won and apparently only a few months later it was proven not to be the case. Suspicion anyone?

Now probably the most incredibly annoying thing this ‘starlette’ has said was in regard to California allowing same-sex marriages. I won’t go into that whole can of worms on my opinions about gay marriage and what-not, I’ll just attack Tila for her comment. She pretty much tried to take all the credit for the law being passed as she seemed to think her MTV series was the big push the law needed. Yeah, what gay people needed was a bisexual stripper (I have more offensive words than this, but I’m trying to keep it clean) with a fake game show to get a law that activist groups had been working on for years to get passed. That’s like thinking Angelina Jolie showing up in Iraq and telling people to stop war will get people to just do it and start texting each other while blogging much like I am right now. I swear the air is getting too thing in LA or something.

In closing, Tila went from just some random woman you hoped to run into at the Playboy Mansion to, well, the exact same thing, only a lot of people know who she is and she thinks that makes her the Queen of California or something. She’s not, she’s the skidmark on the underwear of society. Thank you for reading, look for more articles like this one in the coming times.

* Bucket – whenever I mention this word that means I feel like I’m going to vomit. For the disgusting but somewhat entertaining origin of this line, here’s a link to a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwwZDRelKNk

I got nothin’ this weekend. Here’s some Family Guy clip to tide you over and make you giggle or something.

If you guessed Sean Penn you’d be right!

Yes, the world’s Most Angry Man has decided to lower the boom on any film in the Cannes Film Festival that isn’t “political”. Well, to be more accurate, he means any film that doesn’t align itself with HIS own personal views cannot be considered for the Festival’s top prize.

Penn said it was impossible to separate film from politics, and promised that the winning film would be a reflection of the current climate.

“One way or another, when we select the Palme d’Or winner, I think we are going to feel very confident that the film-maker who made the film is very aware of the times in which he or she lives.”

Woo….guess all that time spent with his bed-buddy Hugo Chavez rubbed off on him. Meh, what a giant douchebag. Found the movie link! I’m sure this is the type of movies that he is talking about films that are eligible for the big prize.

I could not have wrote this out better myself.

You see, Bmac found an article that talks about how big celebrities were experiencing falling numbers in the industry because the general public doesn’t seem to hold much interest in their projects anymore. The reason why? because of all of the interference by these Hollywood news outlets and paparazzi that constantly capture EVERY. FREAKING. MOMENT of these stars lives.

They are “De-mystified” in other words.

And that is pretty much true. Bmac uses a great example:

Led Zeppelin used to have final approval on EVERY photo of them that was ever used. If a magazine published an un-approved photo that didn’t meet “Hammer Of The Gods” standards, that magazine never got to speak to Led Zeppelin ever again. They almost never gave interviews. Music journalists were granted very limited access to them. Led Zeppelin treated the press like the useful idiots they are. No one knew their opinion about politics or the environment. They understood the power of Mystique, and that holds up for them to this day.

Your damn right it does. I remember when people didn’t have access to the intricate details of their favorite actors/actresses/musicians/authors and the only way to experience these “remarkable” people was to pick up one of their books, or go to the theaters to watch their movies, or buy one of their tapes or CD’s. I used quotations on remarkable because now, with all of the ever watchful eye of the prying media, you can easily learn that these people aren’t remarkable at all, and for the most part you find out that they are just self-indulgent pricks who have no social skills and way to many drug habits.

When you reveal things for what they are….the magic of what you thought they were disappears.

It happens with every new star (and some of the old ones) these days. Like Pitt and Jolie for example: Once they were THE two hottest stars in Hollywood and women swooned over Brad while Men drooled over Angelina. However, now, since we know EVERYTHING about them we find that they are pretty much gigantic liberal douchebags who like to adopt 40 million kids and complain about the government and Wal-mart.

Magic is gone people.

Same goes for Music, and Books.

Like Stephen Kings latest tirade: totally ruined his works for me. When he was just this guy who was writing horror novels that I loved he was awesome. Now I just see some over-opinionated prick who thinks his thoughts are far more important and worth-defending than anyone else. Because we are now privy to all of the inner workings of our favorite stars….they no longer become stars anymore.

The information that we are privy to now? It’s almost like we are being forced to be stalkers by TMZ, Access Hollywood, E!, and the tabloids. We know too much and now the “mystique” is gone.

Possibly gone forever.

Thank the God in Heaven for this one.

The show got cancelled, not once, but twice. Hell, it got cancelled and an absolute outcry from fans got CBS to put the show back on the air, but this time they pretty much removed ALL of the mystery of the show and turned it in to, as Bmac so eloquently pointed out, “a Kos-worthy liberal wank-fest”.

Indeed.

Either way, I no longer have to see Ulrich’s awfully bad acting face anymore. Which is always a good thing.
