Xero's other waste of space

So I’m trying to think of something to write about which involves making fun of. It’s fun to write and read things that make fun of other things just because. Alright here we go. Reality TV.

American idol. What is this bullshit? A bunch of people who want to become pop stars by singing other peoples songs in order to get a record contract from some RIAA owned label? This is the biggest load of crap I’ve ever seen. Let’s look at the flaws in it.

First, people competing to be a pop star, yet by even showing up on this show, 90% of them already are pop stars. I can remember someone telling me how a few of them got record contracts despite being “voted off” the show. That’s another thing about these reality shows, I’m sure in reality you can just vote people out that you don’t like, we all know that life is a perfect democracy.

So you win a record contract with the RIAA to become a one hit wonder but of course all the fans of the show will buy their album. I can’t even imagine the shitloads of money they must be wheeling in from this show. It’s pure idolism and american corporatism slapped into one.

Then you got the real world, let’s not even fucking go there. You name a show the real world and put a bunch of disgruntled politically correct teens in a house together. Enough said, I don’t even need to explain this one.

Then you got survivor, this one’s just silly. You have a bunch of people out in the middle of africa or stranded on some island that play games to get food, water, and supplies. I’m sure when real people are stranded in the desert all they have to do is climb a rope wall to get some water. This show is pathetic.

The Osbournes, this is more MTV bullshit. MTV seems to top the cake when it comes to brainwashing bullshit. A family that fights and curses a lot and involves a rock star. Now let’s look at MTV for a second. MTV is the network which always claims to be uncensored and yet censors everything. They claim to be new and hip but are really just a load of corporate bullshit straight from the asses of viacom executives.

So what is this really? A bunch of beeped out curse words and silly fights over useless shit. Just what I wanted to see. MTV really did it with this one, ranks right up there with shows like Jackass.

That’s the thing about Reality TV. It’s not even close to real at all, and it always involves voting people off and/or arguments. How is this real? Why do people want to watch other people fighting and voting each other off? What the fuck is happening to america?

This isn’t entertainment. It’s people trying to dilute the issues they have in their life by rationalizing it after seeing people “worse” then them. Just vote away all your problems. In reality though, those people aren’t really worse, they’re not even real. Their personalities are created by the TV show, not by who they really are.

I can understand people might enjoy different things and share different opinions but this is pure garbage. There is no value to these shows, there’s no plot, no entertaining factor. Shit I know people who watch them just to see teens in bikinis. As if there isn’t enough porn around already.

Reality shows have no purpose, no plot, no objective. Most of them are just around so some big corporation can make a quick buck. What ever happened to doing things for fun instead of for money? Of course you get the people who say “what if you can combine the two?” but look what happens most of the time when it’s combined. They start producing stories just for the money. Idealism and money don’t mix very well. Money corrupts people.
