I need to vent for a bit, so bear with me. ABDC has long been a Sunday night tradition of mine. With the beginning of Season 4, I was immediately drawn to two groups: Massive Monkees and Rhythm City. I guess my real beef isn’t with ABDC, yet with the thousands of ridiculous teens that flood the show, and votes. Really, does every performance deserve a standing ovation? I understand that the performers feed off of the energy from the crowd, but it is something that the performers must gain. What is really ticking me off is that all these thousands of young ladies think its fun to watch a bunch of grown gay men frolic around the stage. Vogue Evolution is a group of gay men, and one transgender woman. Nothing against gays, but seriously they can’t dance at all, they just flaunt their homosexuality all over the stage, and IT IS GROSS!!! The other straight dancers don’t flaunt their sexuality, they just dance, and they do it well. Another beef is that somehow Afro Borike has made it to the fourth episode!! They are worse than the gays, and they aren’t even American (again, nothing against foreigners, but it is American’s best dance crew)

It has not been my intention at all to offend anyone by this post; it just frustrates me that the dance crews are not being judged based on their dancing ability. If so, Southern Movement wouldn’t have been voted off, and Rhythm City wouldn’t even had been in the bottom two. Even the official judges (Shane Sparks, Lil’ Mama and JC Chasez) said that both Southern Movement and Rhythm City had the best performances of the episode (Sunday 8/23), but because they were both voted by the audience (aka mindless teens) into the bottom two from the previous episode, one of the groups had to be chosen by the official judges to go, and they chose Southern Movement.

John Stewart, when you mess with the bull, you get the horns.

Excited about Leopard, not excited about the semester starting in a week.

Pardon the Rant

I finally can stop pretending to enjoy regular season baseball! Pre-season football is like a breath of fresh air, but it’s only a teaser. Soon to come are the Saturdays wasted on my couch watching college football, followed by Sundays watching the NFL, and then a legit excuse to skip FHE to watch Monday Night Football. SO CLOSE, I can taste it!! However in regular season baseball’s defense, I am very pumped about the Rangers getting Pudge Rodriguez and leading the AL Wildcard (entering Tuesday).

What in the hell is a world-class athlete going to rape a girl for? McNulty’s case accusing Ben Roethlisberger of rape is beginning to seem even more McNutty as facts continue to unfurl. Long gone are the days when people had honor and put their honor in their word. Here are the days when false accusations are spit for the sole purpose of finical gain and fame, even at the expense of one’s honor and trustworthiness. Growing up I was taught that trust with someone is like a having a bank account. When you lie, it’s like you have no money in the bank, and horrible credit, and no one can believe you. However, when trust is built it is like having money in the bank, with a great interest rate. How can people that make such hideous lies look at themselves in the mirror? There is a movie coming out called The Invention of Lying which, as much as a Romantic Comedy can, entertains the idea of a society in which everyone speaks the truth, and there is no reason to not believe what people say.

The NBC Store is selling Obama merchandise. My favorite item was the shirt with Mr. Obama’s portrait and the words “Yes We Did” written below. My question: Did what? A lot has been put in motion from the Obama administration, but seriously after about an 1/8th of a term what has actually been “did”? Awesome how, according to Gallup, in 47 of the 50 states conservatives outnumber liberals, yet due to the media’s liberal voice, all we get, with some exceptions, is left-wing opinion.
