State of Affairs Versus The People’s Choice Awards, Part II

22 Nov

Good morning friends, and welcome back to Monday here at State of Affairs.  Today, Lu Galasso (of Inching Towards Mediocrity) and yours truly are continuing our castigation/mockery/sometimes serious take on this year’s People’s Choice Awards.  Friday we tackled the hilariously-underperforming Movie category, in which I was called out for electing Robert Downey Jr. as king of everything without having seen Iron Man 2.  To my detractors I say this: I couldn’t get my hands on that movie, so I rewatched Sherlock Holmes and my decision stands.  Too bad for you.

Anyway, on to part two: TELEVISION!  (Disclaimer: once again, my votes are going to be skewed a bit because I don’t really watch television, but given the choices in most of the categories, I’m going to assume whoever runs the PCAs doesn’t really watch television either.)

It was strange, because although I completely recognized that me watching this crap was a waste of time, I simply couldn’t stop. I have a strange feeling that a lot of other people have this same problem. It’s Pringles syndrome. One you start….

The Bachelorette Ends; Inexplicably, People Still Care

28 Jul

Okay. I’ve been doing paperwork all morning (don’t ask) and I’m right pissed off. Not my usual, smoke-and-a-coffee-and-I’ll-be-okay kind of pissed off, either. I was up all night writing and drinking whiskey, fell asleep on my hardwood floor, and now I’m sore, tired and genuinely irritated by the fact that people still watch reality television.
