So..... I STILL Hate The News

So I'm sitting in my hotel room in OK waiting until Friday for Seth wedding and decide to kill some time with... the television. What of course comes on? Fox News, that's what (award yourself 5 points if you got that right). So I'm like okay, news, I'll give it another shot. BIG MISTAKE! The headline at 10:52 p.m. was about none other than Britney Spears and her alleged drug problems. I wondered to myself, is there seriously nothing better to report about than celebrities? I mean, I thoughts that E! was for (award yourself another 5 points if you agree), disregarding The Soup of course. I mean why not raise AIDs awareness or Darfur, or, heaven forbid, more political background stories. I guess I must agree with my previous post and re-voice my opinion about how the news that is reported is hardly news at all. I won't bore you again with my views but look them up in my previous post if you wanna.
I must say that the ONLY redeeming quality of the news is 11 - 12 on Comedy Central. Yes citizens I am talking about none other than The Daily Show With Jon Stewart followed by The Colbert Report.
Another redeeming quality, as reported by the one and only Will-ber, is The Drudge Report.
So check the real stuff out.

The Broski Speaks

So my brother, Seth , knows a thing or two about a thing or two. His most recent filosofee is one that should be shared across the universe (not literally NASA; don't be beaming any more songs into space.... jeez).

"Nine out of ten times, the person is going to be more important than the situation."

When Seth said this it seriously blew my mind man. What he is talking about here is that in an argument, disagreement, or pretty much any other form of human interaction, winning the person and his/her feelings, whether that be admitting you are wrong or even saying you were wrong even if you weren't, is going to be more important than winning the conversation. This ideology of complete selflessness is one of many beautiful characteristics portrayed in the human that is my brotherly kin.

Congratulations on being engaged/alive/a great person, Seth.

    You Like What You Like Man

    So I recently watched "The King Of Kong: A Fistful Of Quarters" with my sister who loves to comment on everything and say what she thinks about the situation. Expectedly, she had quite a few things to say about the avid video game player in "The King Of Kong". Quotes like, "These people are sick," "No one should be this addicted to anything," made me wonder why someone can't accept. Don't get me wrong, my sister is a very accepting person and this post is in NO way a bash at her; this post is a bash at ALL. So what if someone wants to wear a fanny pack, listen to Michael Bolton, or wear girl pants; that's their decision. The reason for the photo is to show that people are people who like what they like. Personally, I think people should be more excited about what they're passionate about.

    So I guess the reason for this post is to say that you gotta accept people where they are because you would want someone to do the same.
