The 80's Rock!!

Once I was down. Then, from the other room I heard a sound. It was aluring like a young Sean Young in Blade Runner. I listened closer. The beat was soothing, the melody sweet, and lyrics clearly New Age....It was THE 80'S!!!

80's music is a genre that fills me with nostalgic glee! From Simple Minds' Don't You (Forget about me) to Prince's Rasberry Beret the entire decade is filled to the Brim with Sexy, Techno Inspiring Beats, and Cheesy Cliche Lyrics or Teenage Angst. Who could possibly ask for any more...other than to legalize "it".

Long live the 80's, a decade of excess that we all so sweetly long for again.

Wrasslin' Not just another fake reality show.

Professional Wrestling, what I refer to as Wrasslin', has been pelted with many criticisms over the years. From early on I can remember people asking me, "why do you watch Professional Wrestling? Don't you know it's FAKE!?"
Well for one, in order for something to be fake, it has to be presented as completely and totally real in all aspects. Wrasslin' has not been billed as completely REAL since the 70's, and even then most people with IQ's over 80 took it as entertainment not sport.
People who complain about Wrasslin' being fake are the same people you heard raving about how they could so relate to 21 Jump Street, Beverly Hills 90210, and Melrose Place. As if anything on those shows were even close to "REAL".
The purpose of a television is to entertain. These programs do just that. To simplify the matter, think of Wrasslin' as the male version of a soap opera. There are reocurring characters, intertwining storylines, good and bad personas, all of which switch back and forth as time goes on. Part of the enjoyment of Wrasslin' is the beyond reality factor. It is quite a pathetic person can not appreciate watching someone elses imagination, dreams, and creativity unfold before them.
Although you could say, Freak, isn't that what 90210, was? Aren't you being a bit hipocritical? Well no my point is that Wrasslin' is not any different, at least on a basic level, than Friends or Desperate Housewives. To each their own!
I imagine if I were a fan of (insert favorite show here), and someone was making fun of it, I would retaliate all the same. If you enjoy the shows I have used in my tyrade please do not be offended at my rantings. As long as you enjoy what you watch, it is good TV show. For in the end that is their purpose, to entertain.
Judge not the Wrasslin', for in the long history of entertainment, combative storylines are the father of all entertainment. I doubt there was ever a caveman tale about how Ugg's roommate Grom forgot to pay the rent and now they have to hold a house party or face eviction.

Thought O' The Day

New cartoons, mostly suck, mostly. There are a few good ones out there like Aqua Teen Hunger Force. This opinion is based on my current age though, and I am sure if I were a 7 year old I would have a few additional cartoons on my list. The main culprit here is ANIME. What this country needs right now is a good old fashion 80's cartoon revival. With cartoons like The Smurfs, Gummi Bears, G.I. Joe, Jem, He-Man, Dungeons & Dragons, and the rest what could possibly happen? Well I guess probably another generation of twenty-somethings typing on their computers about the good ol' days of cartoons, that's what.

Maybe that is the real problem, not solving my problems just bitching about them.
Today, I do beleive I will work on that.
