Nice Try

January 12, 2012

Flipping through the television channels last night I came across the Big Bang Theory.

Begin the confusion.

I coulda sworn the show was Thursdays, not Wednesdays.

That little station logo in the bottom right corner said Global. CTV carries Big Bang Theory in Canada.

And why do I not recognize this scene? Is this a new episode…

The whole thing was just a quick scene to start some awards show.

I don’t watch awards shows. Awards shows are baa-aad television.

Awards shows promote the theory that entertainment has some sort of social relevance beyond being just entertainment. Does Justin Timberlake have any social relevance? No. He’s just an entertainer. He’s just a guy that we pay money so he’ll continue to sing into an auto-tuner and dance around like he’s trying to attract a male panda bear.

Awards show promote the theory that opinion of art and entertainment can be measured and rated. It is as though because of a little gold statue, this movie is better than that movie. Who says that the anonymous people in the judging committee are right? And if the masses vote for an award, why trust the masses? Look at our elected officials. Were the masses right when those fools were elected into office?

Awards shows provide nothing to our society beyond being a venue for the entertainment industry to market select products.

If you take anything away from this post of nearly total nonsense, let it be this: Justin Timberlake helps panda bears mate in captivity.

    That panda bear’s career was never the same after Timberlake showed his boob.

    The panda was wearing a pasty thing on it’s nipple. Not the same as actual panda nipple. Shame.

    Well, thank you Justin Timberlake! And here I thought he was only good for wardrobe malfunctions.

    That’s right. Justin Timberlake makes pandas horny.

    He also did the My Dick in a Box video – for that, he has societal value.

    I thought Mr. RK invented that when he first met you.

    Amen to that, brutha. I have no use for awards shows. And I’m very suspicious of movies that win Academy Awards. They tend to be pompous, long-winded, and generally insufferable.

    Except when Roberto Benigni accepted his last award for Life is Beautiful. “I uh, uh, use uppa alla my Engalish.”

    What is this thing you speak of, awards show? Sounds utterly insane and full of self-gratification, to me!
