I was watching one of these makeover shows on tv the other day, and in walked this beautiful 'My Little Pony Girl'. She was sparkly and colorful and completely unique.
When she walked back out, she had been turned into some sort of a vamp : white hair, red dress and stilettos. There was nothing left of the original girl.
Buying fries can be fun.
I just started listening to a lecture from the Gresham College, with the title 'Grasping shadows : the dark side in painting.'
And about four minutes into the talk the lecturer says ... 'We see the shadow of the young Anakin Skywalker, but the shadow is that of Darth Vader, the dark person that SHE is about to become.'
There's no reaction from the audience ... so I don't think they have seen the movies either. =)
TV is becoming increasingly useless. Its only purpose nowadays is to deliver ads.
Even a short show such as 'the Big Bang Theory' (22 min) is cut up with ads.
And it's not as if the ads are entertaining or actually meaningful.
For instance, a beer has temporarily renamed itself to 'Belgium', and in the
commercial they have people shout : 'We are Belgium !'
What does that even mean ???
Or the commercial in which an enormous, white car is pitched
against a tiny, black ram ...
What message is that supposed to convey ?
"If you're a bully, buy our car" ???
I just don't get it.
But maybe other people do, and I'm just getting old.

There are so many bad professional websites around these days, and they annoy me terribly. It's as if creators and owners no longer care ...
These are just from the last half hour :
What is it with cats and photographs ???
