“Two and a Half Men, and Sex and the City.”

Posted in Uncategorized on April 29, 2009 by zoomersurf29

These two shows are hilarious and they really show that the single people have the cool lives and jobs and boyfriends/girlfriends.  These characters are not made dumb or ugly because they are the cool ones on the street. 

Married couples have cool lives but they are not seen like that because the media is trying to make it seem like married life is hell and the wife is always in charge.  These shows are fiction but the men in society see this and they get the thought in their head that they never want to get married.

The media is really affecting how are lives go these days and it is sad.  It is affecting the way we look the way we act and the way we choose to live our lives.

Media Fast

It is crazy how relient we are on technology now.  I am a server and if I didn’t have a calculator or computer I would not be able to get my job done.  I would actually have to add my tickets using my math skills which are lacking at this point.  I was able to give up television and my computer for 2 days however.  I got lucky and didn’t have any homework to turn in.

That is another thing some of my classes all of my homework is due through blackboard so therefore I need the internet and a computer.  If I did not have these things I would fail my classes.  It is also a great way to communicate with your instructors.

So giving up media is virutally impossible in this century and centuries to come.  It is probably going to get worse and the future generations will not be able to go to college without a computer.  It is interesting to see how things evolve and grow.  Pretty soon we will have flying cars like in Back to the Future.  You never know.

I was at the bar the other night and I was able to see this very interesting Japanese band perform.  This band had no musical or vocal talent but they got the audience completely involved.  They dressed up like power rangers basically, each member was a different color.  There was the pink bassist, yellow electric guitar, green drummer, and pink helper.  Their songs made no sense the crowd went crazy.

One of the songs was called “how do you like your meat,” and the crowd would yell “medium rare.”  It was ridiculous what the crowd was doing myself included.  We were puddy in their hand, we did everything they said and we loved it even though this band had no talent at all.  When I got home I started thinking about other celebrities, and artists that we see that some people would do anything for.  I also started thinking about the marketing industry and how we are just “puddy in their hands.”

I had no idea who this band was but I joined in the activities and did what they ask.  How many times have we done that?  It is crazy what people will do for fun and just to fit in.

Burts Bees and Clorox

Posted in Uncategorized on April 2, 2009 by zoomersurf29

I don’t know how many of you read City Weekly, but last week they had an interesting article about the bleach and the bees.  The story talks about burts bees and how it is a natural, organic and eco-friendly product.  Burts Bees was only sold at certain stores, like independent markets.  But since 1998 Burts Bees lip balm has been popping up everywhere.  The reason the lip balm is popping up everywhere is because Clorox purchased this organic product.  Clorox a corporate company who does not care about the environment, and whose main industry is directly associated with harmful chemicals.

When I started reading this story I got so frustrated.  I really like Burts Bees and it really upset me to learn that they are now owned by Clorox, the company that makes the most deadly chemicals in the world.  Why does Clorox own Burts Bees?  Simply because of greed.  The woman who took over Burts Bees sold because she wanted money, she wanted 5 houses and nice cars.  It is all about greed and material things.  It is really disappointing!!

Ben & Jerry’s also sold out, Breyers now own them.  I understand that these companies need to make money to pay the bills but when they sell their products usually get changed and they are never the same again.  It is sad that these companies sell out but no one knows because they will not tell the public.  For everyone who uses Burts Bees you will never find anything that says they are affiliated with Clorox because Clorox is not stupid and they know they would lose business if their customers knew.

If anyone has an comments about this I would like to know.
