Maybe I am taking this post too seriously, but here are my two cents:

I don’t think reality TV has the power to shape our values, because that gives something frivolous more power than it deserves. No, I don’t think TV is better because of reality TV being so terrible. It simply exists because people like tabloids.

Is this a campaign against Reality TV? Hardly, but to argue that I or anyone else somehow NEEDS to or SHOULD apologize to TV made for the purposes of Schadenfreude simply for not liking it or talking trash about it is silly. Some people simply are not entertained by game shows, contests, or other programs that display some hyper-dramatized version of reality.

Is it damaging? I don’t know. I don’t really think so, because it has an audience, and that audience enjoys it. That’s the point of TV or entertainment in general yes? I hardly think it should be abolished, but I am never going to enjoy it. I dislike the format and I don’t appreciate being lumped into a category simply for finding it stupid and distasteful.

Garbage in, garbage out.

Tyler Perry doesn’t need costars, he can do bad all by himself.

I chock this week up to the Jezebel Principle, which states:

See how I can reply to my own comment here? In the Late Comment Zone you can post comments with impunity.

Here we are, more than 30 comments down, in what I like to call the “Late Comment Zone”. Typically anything written below this line will be ignored as more new content has filed in above it. It’s the Last Call with Carson Daily of commenting.

Classic Late Comment Zone right here.

Gabe, just wanted to let you know that if you don’t ever want to post anything about this TALES OF POWER thing again, that’s ok with me.

First time around was endearing because it was shocking to see decent enough “writing” in a commercial that could make you laugh. Second time around we’ve all learned you are just co-opting more of our own culture and selling it back to us so we don’t like you anymore. Don’t let your molasses-smooth voice hit you on the way out.

Kinda feel like I reacted poorly too. Also need to note I in no way support upskirt photos or the paparazzi in general.

 -13Posted on Jan 25th, 2011 | re: Gwyneth Paltrow Upskirt (283 comments)

Everyone is being very reactionary. We only find shame in our naked bodies due to puritanical beliefs ingrained in our culture. On that same note it is ridiculous to assume Gabe’s posting of a link will prop up the “Upskirt industry”.

Yes this photo and perhaps this post were in bad taste. Get over it or go read more Jezebel and stop by Cute Overload if you can’t. Videogum is for comedy, and in comedy there is nothing off-limits. I fail to see the humor is the post itself, but the first group of comments before this tirade was pretty decent for a few laughs.

I don’t think joking about this supports upskirt paparazzi either. Women having vaginas they want to see without permission is enough for them I bet.

Gabe, prob not a good idea to post this in videogum as it has nothing to do with Videos, Gum, or Comedy.

Monsters, calm down and have a juice box.

How do I convert all the bowls in my house into puppy bowls? Wanna have a puppy bowl of cereal in the morning and just in general have more puppies per capita everywhere.

I think it is a fair exchange if you get millions of dollars to play pretend for a living while simultaneously turning your personal image into a brand that you be openly mocked for your decadence. Be as petty and mean spirited as you want.
