Here are 3 things I thought about this week –
- Hunger Games. Really? I am not some movie snob (many other forms of snob but not movie) but this has people fawning. This shit looks like bad Running Man meets Twilight (There is no good Twilight). If this would have been written in the 60’s or 70’s it would have been considered pulp at best.
- Thomas Kinkade. Maybe he made art accessible to the masses or maybe he conned a lot of folks into what might be art. Either way, if you allow and market yourself as “The Painter Of Light” you should also be known as “The Douchebag At Sunrise”.
- College Sports. From the NCAA basketball tournament to the recent issues with Coach Petrino at Arkansas my mind is further made up all the time. College sports are a joke. The fans who follow their alma mater to the boosters who pay for it, it is all a sham. Let these kids all go semi pro or pro pending their skill level (The NFL needs a minor leaguer system and all the other sports have one) and cut the mockery that it is. All these people who then say the athletics pay for the colleges have no idea what they are talking about. The big time football schools pay for thier program and that is it….look at everything from salaries to the full maintenance costs and you will see what the real financial picture is. What a fucking joke.
