What Happened?

I'm pretty much in a disgusted mood right now...

J'aime and I went out after work and we went to the bookstore up in Plymouth Meeting.  And have you looked in the young adult section lately?!  All these books about the shallowest most bull shit topics.  "The Princess Diaries", "Gossip Girl" which was pure shallow bull shit. 

"Gossip Girl" is basically about these rich New York girls, who wear the best clothes, go to "exclusive private schools", drive expensive cars, and live in expensive New York penthouses.  It's like dude, why are you giving these dumb ass girls a false ideal of what teenage life is like.  More then likely, you're poor or at least middle classed.  Living in a modest house, wearing clothes that come from Value City, taking public transportation, and going to a skuzzy public school.

And as for "The Princess Diaries" another shallow piece of claptrap.  Let's break it down shall we.  You are not royalty!  Are not related to royalty!  You will never ever marry royalty!  You are a skuzzy American!  Despite what you have read in books and seen in the movies, royalty don't marry skuzzy American girls.  They'll sleep with you, but never EVER marry you.  The most you can hope for
is to marry someone well off, but even then nope...  Just deal with the fact that you will never be a "Princess".  Pull your head out of the clouds and your ass and deal.

Another book that had me reeling today, "How to Find a Husband After 35".  People.  If you want to find a husband.  I mean you really have this deep desire to get married.  What you wanna do, is to put the self help book down.  Pull your head out of your ass.  Take a shower, do your hair, put some nice clothes on, and take the time to meet people instead of sitting home alone reading dumb ass
self help books all night!!!

I swear to God.  What is wrong with the world these days?!  When did most people become either completely shallow or highly self righteous?  When did the focus shift from the betterment of society and the world, to how much money you have in your bank account and the betterment of materialistic things?

Do you know because of this dumb ass war they are withholding one of my most favorite Dr. Seuss Books called The Bitter Butter Battle.  I guess because it's an anti-war book and we're in the middle of some dumb war we can't have books, especially children's books that say you shouldn't be against war.  I guess we have to teach our children that war is a good thing all the time. 

Oh sure, let's just fight until we're all dead.  That'll learn 'em then!

Oh well, I've argued enough and I'm starting to get a headache.

Woo-hoo:  Well, at least it's the weekend and I don't have to do anything important tomorrow.

Barf:  Ugh...  When did the world turn this way?!  And when will it all end?!

Preach! I know what you mean. It's pretty disheartening when all you see are materialistic images. They're in books, movies, and music. I really worry about the young children that are coming up now. What are they going to be like in 15-20 years?

I tremble to think what these kids are going to be like in 20 years. Probably the same old shallow materialistic morons they are now, just older. But maybe once they're thrust into the real world and see how cold and harsh life is outside of Teen People magazine. Then they'll realize how pointless it is to go though life in a vacuous frame of mind.
