Go Ahead. Adieu.

A lot of times, we do everything in our power to avoid it. But we soon realize change is inevitable. I have so much to say, so much to write.

Yet, I haven’t found the proper space and/or forum to keep my ever changing
needs satisfied.

I won’t get rid of you, wordpress, because well, I never underestimate the entertainment value of reading something I wrote a year or so ago.

But the internet is a beautiful thing, and it would be a shame not to maximize its potential. So I’m moving forward. Let’s see where I’m headed.

Exciting.

Real quick — What do Kanye West, Michael Vick, and Chris Brown have in common? No one gives a s**t about their apologies. Mr. West, Mr. West, you made America’s sweetheart cry and for that, you must be forced to walk around with unusual designs shaved onto your head. Oh, what’s that? He already had those designs on his head?

Only Kanye West could get the whole nation to rally behind country music.

I feel for her. Her situation is not ideal by any stretch of the imagination. And I wish her and her family the best. But damn! Give the girl some water, Kate! She’s dehydrated! That’s messed up. Poor kids.

I stumbled upon the trailer for The Cleveland Show. They promise less pop-culture gags and references, and more of a family-oriented show. It looks promising, but I’m still troubled with the fact that I’m pretty sure a white dude voices the entire family.

This can only turn out one way — interesting. And by interesting, I mean frightening.

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – How’s this for a tweet? Twitter is coming to a television near you.

The social-networking and micro-blogging service is developing the first TV series that incorporates Twitter into the action of the show.

Created by novelist Amy Ephron, sister of Nora and Delia Ephron, the untitled show will feature ordinary people competing while on the trail of celebrities.

Twitter has partnered on the project with production companies Reveille (“The Office”) and Brillstein Entertainment Partners (“Samantha Who?”).

It’s bad enough Twitter has the perception of being a device used to stalk ordinary people and celebrities alike, but they’re going to make a reality television show out of it? This can’t be good.

I’ve enjoyed twittering as much as the next guy, but they have to draw the line somewhere. I mean, sure it sounds interesting, but so does bungee jumping. It doesn’t mean we should do it. Chasing celebrities? It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt — and someone will definitely get hurt. It’s inevitable.

Dumb Commercialé.

For nearly a month, McDonald’s has shoved this commercial down our throats. It’s part of their 100 million dollar McCafé campaign, designed to compete with Starbucks coffee. It hasn’t been airing all that long, but I’ve had enough. I haven’t been this annoyed by a commercial in a while.

Not only does it make absolutely no sense, it’s pointless. Everyone would be much better off living without it.

And I actually like McDonald’s.
