Ok, I'd originally planned on only one thing for this post, but I saw something tonight that I just feel the need to comment on... so we'll do that first, and we'll do the main post second...
Firstly... OK, so, I've never been really into the whole skinny anorexic girl thing. I've known some skinny girls who were really hot, and there are some skinny celebrity girls who are really hot. But in general, I like for there to be at least some meat on a girl's bones. I'm not all about the 300 pound Goodyear blimps, mind you, but I'm not all about the 90 pounders either. But anyway, I saw Erika Christensen (I think that's how you spell it) on Last Call tonight. She was in Traffic, and Swimfan, and a couple other movies. And she was really freakin' hot in those. But tonight she was on Carson Daly's show, and I swear she'd gained like 20 pounds since the last time I saw her. And... um... not cool. She used to be so hot, and now she kinda blew up, and it's not cool anymore. <--- That is my sad face.
Ok, so, now we'll get to the part of the post that I'd originally planned on writing. And that part is my incomplete and mostly satirical commentary on daytime TV. I get out of class at noon, now, so I've seen a lot of daytime TV lately. So I'm going to comment on the general content of whatever shows I have enough experience to comment on, whehter that comes from actually watching the show, or just seeing numerous commercials for. So here we go...
Jerry Springer: This one typically includes two types of shows. "I fucked your (boyfriend / girlfriend), let's throw chairs at each other," or "I am a fuckup because I (wear womens' underwear / am a hooker / enjoy molesting small woodland creatures), let's throw chairs at each other." High quality viewing entertainment.
Maury Povich: Another show with two distinct types of episodes. "I slept with 16 different dudes while I was pregnant, and I think you're Shaneequa's real daddy," or "I have a heartbreaking story to justify someone in my life getting a $5000 makeover that will last approximately 20 minutes." Mildly entertaining, if only for the laugh factor when it turns out that Jamiroquai isn't really Shaneequa's real daddy.
Jenny Jones: Only one type of show here. "My best friend is a (prude / skank) and I want to give them a makeover to make them look more like a (skank / prude, respectively)." Avoid this show at all costs.
Judge Judy: Petty disputes between ex-lovers become hilarious when The Honorable Judge Judith Schindlein belittles them in front of a national audience. Excellent.
The People's Court: Petty disputes between ex-lovers become hilarious when The Honorable Judge Marilyn Milian belittles them in front of a national audience. It's highly entertaining, but it boils down to Judge Judy Minus 20 Years.
Judge Mathis: Petty disputes between (ex-lovers / landlords and tenants) become hilarious when The Honorable Judge Greg Mathis belittles them in front of a national audience. Pretty much the same thing as the last two, except this one gets even more fun when Judge Mathis sides with the white guy even though the black guy tried to gain sympathy by playing the race card.
