THE STUPID LIFE OF US
after the weekend I've had a thought occured to me.. that the weekend lives of us demented fiends could easily make for a good tv show.. not anything terribly ground breakin' or classy, or suspense driven.. (or fukkit, not even that good really), but DAMN would it be funny, it'd just be like "The Secret Life of Us", but feature even MORE drunk n stoned idiots.. doing even MORE stupid things.. seriously dude, it'd be laugh a minute.. I'd watch it.. and hey, if you're reading this junk.. you'd probably wanna watch it too ;)
coz, lets face it.. with all the reality tv shows oversaturatin' the idiot box, sooner or later all of us are either gonna be on "Funniest Home Videos", be a victim of a wacky house rennovation / garden makeover / room swapping / date rape home invasion concept show, be a victim of another CNN sponsored terrorist attack (and have our bloodied footage splattered 24/7 over all the news shows), end up shakin' our gibbly bits on BIG BROTHER, willfully get ourselves tortured on another stolen Japanese game show concept, or just otherwise make a complete ass of ourselves on one of the many closed circuit security cameras that blanket our city malls, streets and social gatherings..
I say, we should just make a pre-emptive strike.. and just make our own tv shows, coz.. really, it's the only way to control exactly how our privacy is being invaded and put into public space.. notice how nobody bothers keeping secrets anymore..? if everyone else out there watching tv knows it, why not ya circle of friends as well.. fukkit.. we need a hallmark card for it.. "CONGRATULATIONS ON MAKING PAGE 1", as they're saying now - in the future.. you'll be happy to get "15 minutes of privacy".
either way, if my life WAS a tv show, would it make it any better? would I get more action? each week could I do ANOTHER up n coming hollywood starlet? could I fight demons? defuse terrorist plots? drink coffee in the same 'ol crappy cafe and yet still get some play? get killed every week and yet still manage to come back to life? resolve all my issues in 1 hour edited blocks? could I buy my life on DVD? would it make more sense?
yeah.. it'd be damn stupid, and I wouldn't win any Logies or Golden Globes.. but damn it'd still be cool..
