What Do the Simple Folk Do?

At the risk of sounding elitist-which bothers me not at all- I was thinking of this song from Camelot tonight….

Whenever I think about the national addiction to Reality TV- which I think about rarely- either national addictions or TV….

I think of this song from Camelot…

I guess there has always been a place for Kartrashians, Jersey Shores and Real Housewives of Whatever-the-hell….

Just not for me…..

I gave up on popular culture when it became evident the terms were mutually exclusive….

Of course, at least we haven’t yet sunk to feeding people to the lions in the Coliseum…

Oh, wait….NASCAR….

And the Republican House of Representatives….


At least it is apparently an age old problem….

Daniel Craig Calls Kardashians ‘F*cking Idiots,’

Another reason to love Daniel Craig….

I’m really offended that I even had to find out who the Kardashians are….And I never watch TV!

They are so omnipresent in the media, you can’t avoid the skanky creatures…..

Daniel puts it in perspective….

Daniel Craig is a very private man, on screen and off. On film, he plays a journalist doing important investigative work, as well as the world’s most famous spy; in real life, he does things like get married in super secret ceremonies. And as he tells British GQ, he’s got good reason for all the secrecy; once you go Kardashian, you never go back.

“I think there’s a lot to be said for keeping your own counsel,” Craig tells the magazine. “You can’t buy it back. You can’t buy your privacy back. ‘Ooh, I want to be alone. ‘F*ck you. We’ve been in your living room. We were at your birth. You filmed it for us and showed us the placenta, and now you want some privacy?'”

In case he wasn’t clear enough that he was talking about the Kardashians — hey, reality shows blend together — he then emphasized his target.

“It’s a career. What can I tell you?” he continues. “It is a career; I’m not being cynical. And why wouldn’t you? Look at the Kardashians, they’re worth millions. Millions! I don’t think they were that badly off to begin with, but now look at them. You see that and you think, ‘What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a f*cking idiot on television and then you’ll pay me millions?'”

In fact, Craig’s comments are quite salient on a day when Kourtney Kardashian announced that she is pregnant… on the cover of Us Weekly.

‘Cursing’ Baby Doll Upsets Parents

I may have to have one of these….

I would have loved it if these had been around when my friends had small children.  I would have known exactly what to give them for Christmas then!

Instead, I may just go buy a few for selected friends now….

Of course, people are freaking out and making much ado over nothing…

Video, at the link below, from Huffington Post:

A talking baby doll available at Toys “R” Us is upsetting some parents, who claim it has a potty mouth.

Some customers are calling for the “You & Me Interactive Play & Giggle Triplet Dolls” to be pulled from shelves because they say one of the dolls can be heard uttering, “You crazy bitch.”

“I did hear that. I wouldn’t want that for my child. Definitely not,” Denise Altschule told FOX23 in Tulsa, Okla.

Another mother told WJXT-TV in Jacksonville, Fla., that she feared her son could pick up the curse word from the doll. “I don’t want him repeating what’s on there,” she said.

The dolls, which are intended for children 2 and up, are being sold exclusively at Toys “R” Us stores. A Toys “R” spokeswoman told FOX23 that the retail store has not received widespread complaints and said the offending phrase is just baby talk.

Justin Bieber’s Alleged Baby Mama Dismisses Paternity Lawsuit

I knew I was right!!!

I’m convinced Justin Bieber really is a 24 year old lesbian being packaged by the media conglomerates to make money.

Therefore,  this simply was not physically  possible.

Now I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop and that fact to come out….

Remember Milli Vanilli!

From TMZ:


Justin Bieber’s baby mama has dismissed her paternity lawsuit against the singer … TMZ has learned.

The suit was quietly dismissed late last week.  What’s more, Mariah Yeater’s lawyers, Lance Rogers and Matt Pare, have quit her … withdrawn from the case.

As we first reported, Justin not only planned to take a DNA test when he returned to the U.S., he was going to sue Yeater and her lawyers for making a bogus claim.  And, as we reported, Justin’s lawyer, Howard Weitzman, called the attorneys and informed them a suit was looming.

Apparently, they got the message.
