Blame it On Tylenol-3

I'm sick of it all.

I'm sick of the meaningless crap that I see on television. I'm sick of network news that spews out only the spin that supports a biased view and then calls it impartial.

I'm sick of hoochie mamas thrusting their pelvises into the camera like they have something that's new and unique to the world of anatomy...

I'm sick of spitting, bad language, hands grabbing supposedly huge penises, fake breasts, perfectly white teeth, mutated duck lips, cadaverous souls, bad manners, loudmouths, and the fucking 15 minutes of fame mentality. I'm tired of bimbos, pimps, paparazzi, and obscene conspicuous consumption.

I'm tired of the homogenization of life and people, of the narrowness of mind that pervades our country. I'm tired of slobs and laziness of body and mind. I'm tired of the world celebrating the lowest common denominator, of rewarding it and nurturing it and calling it "talent". I'm tired of slack-jawed nincompoops screeching over who was the father. I'm tired of young girls flashing their tits for dollar bills, or worse, colorful beads.

I want education, the arts, and creativity to matter again. I want some basic human dignity. I want something to count on, to believe in. I want something to really matter. I want substance. I want some meat, god damn it.

Stop the world—I want to get off.

  1. Such a great commentary on our society and pop culture! I'm with you on the Paris Hiltons, the train wreck Britney Spears.....

    If our society honestly cared about the MEAT - our media would dig into the TRUTHS of our government, our representatives and President's crimes against the nation...

    Let me know where you get off so I can sit and have some coffee with you - and chew on the meat! Great blog.

  3. I agree. When did the unexamined life become the norm? And why are we allowing it to be?

    Keep growling. It's the only hope we have left.

  4. We were just in the car--a long drive home in the dark through the countyside. It was so peaceful. I couldn't help but think about how disconnected our lives are from the ugly world I know is all around us.

    I was just kicking myself for taking my life for granted, for assuming everyone plays by the same rules, for being so naive... for being so optimistic.

    I wondered, who are we kidding?

  5. Hear, hear! Huzzah! Well-said! Exactly how I've been feeling lately! What is happening to the human race? We spent how many years evolving into the most intelligent species and now, lately, we seem to be dis-evolving into the most stupid species on earth. Is it something in the water? The air? The food? The environment? What?
