...we've hit the big time. Denver can truly be acknowledged as being "Real."

This nonsense is happening a scant couple of blocks from my office. Oops...I think I puked on myself a little while reading that.

What frightens me the most is that this is SEASON 18?!?! of this engineered "reality" experience. Aside from the slight differences in the "hipper-than-thou" parts of the cities that host these love-fests, what new ground are we covering here? Do we need an eighteenth example of how boorish and shallow 20-somethings in a staged environment can be? Obviously, we do....

A poor singer I believe. I'll always remember this little snippet of sound available from a library on the family's Mac SE: "Here is the sound of John Denver being strangled: 'Put your head on my pillaaargl!'"

I have always loved that Monty Python sketch....esp. the "Thank You" at the end.

Not much of a pilot either.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

CHOKED.WAV for anyone who's missed it. I was not aware it came from Monty Python, or in fact where my copy came from. Or if it's even the same one.....

From one of my favorite Python albums. I listened to this cassette (yikes) until the tape literally broke. [url= http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monty_Python%27s_Contractual_Obligation_Album]Wikipedia[/url]

Oh, and sorry for the double-post.

Urk.

This isn't the kind of news I wanted to hear.

I am so tempted to find out where their house is, so I can leave a burning bag of dog crap on their doorstep, maybe with a message saying "MTV GO HOME"...

But I probably won't. I mean, does anyone actually WATCH The Real Spoiled World these days? [Wink]

Evidently someone 'round here does....or at least is fixated enough to stalk the cast, track their movements, and upload camera-phone shots (See web link above).

Mostly it makes me sad that MTV doesn't have much to do with actual music anymore.
