Five Things…

January 20th, 2015 | Posted by Sara in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

Happy Tuesday Afternoon!

I decided to do something new in 2015.  Once per week I’m going to mention the five things I’m fascinated with.

For example:

1.  The Kardashians:  I’m always fascinated with them.  I’m fascinated with why they are fascinating.  Maybe I’m just fascinated with our obsession with them?  Thoughts?

2. It was announced today that the New Kids on the Block are going back on tour.  Love Joe!  They are going to the Xcel in May.  Let’s see what is my Ticketmaster password…

3. Amazon will produce 10 original films this year.  Wonderful!  Now if TCM would just make their app subscription based v. cable based.

4. PBS will also start producing more original content!

5. Lastly, do we really need another Grease?  I think the original was perfect.

Happy Tuesday!

So…Kanye West proposed to his Baby Mama last night in San Francisco.  Evidently it was an over-the-top, extravagant proposal at a sports arena with musicians.  Wow!  The ring is huge and I’m sure it will garner great viewers for their reality show.
Now, I’m just as guilty of watching their program; When I’m sick and on the couch, it’s the perfect brainless fare.  But why do we care?
Why do we care about a family who has no talent other than harnessing the appeal of mass media.  They are not singers, actors, dancers, or educated professionals.   I’m hoping it will all run its course.
So will someone explain to me why this is news and what is the appeal.
Stay tuned …
