Totally random things that annoy the crap out of me, part three

1- Heidi Montag: I am not sure who the hell she is, however her plastic blond self has been all over the news (and by news I mean the internet and crappy magazines) because she is 23 and has had like twelve plastic surgeries. That is twisted. Go away.

2- Joe Jackson (father of Michael Jackson): whether you are after his money, his kids, his fame, or all of the above, he was troubled, you are creepy and incoherent and surely somehow to blame for his lonely life. Go away.

3- The lack of press coverage over the 'outing' of Canadian Conservative member of parliament John Baird: Mr Tough Guy brawler went into hiding when a fellow Conservative listed him as openly gay, and the blip in the press vanished; true or not, it's a story, and silence speaks volumes, especially when you are a mover and shaker in a right-leaning seemingly anti-gay ruling party.

4- John Mayer, whiny racist homophobic misogynistic pop star: shut up and sing. Or just shut up.

5- The one-view uproar over John Mayer's latest verbal diarrhea in a Playboy interview: yep it's good there's an uproar over his racist language, and why no similar uproar over his homophobic slur?

6- Jay Leno whining about how none of the NBC mess was his fault: firstly, I kind of think it was, and secondly, don't care, don't watch your show in any time slot.

7- Lousy movies with Jennifer Anniston. Love Happens, really?

8- The very long opening credits to CTV's Olympic coverage: I have had headaches that don't last this long, and must you play it every hour?

9- The network programmers who continually pre-empt and move around the few shows I follow; hey, I want to watch your crappy shows, I really do, so make it a bit easier for me. Except The Bachelor, that one just sucks.

10- That Doug Fieger, lead singer of The Knack, died this week while still in his 50s. And that we all seem to have forgotten about The Knack, a fun pop rock band best known for My Sharona, and yet we still care about Lindsay Lohan.

Okay that's it for now. More bitching to come...

Totally agree re: Heidi Montag and Doug Fieger...haven't really seen/heard/followed the other stuff. I like your rants Brahm...keep it up1

Michael Rivers said...

Love this post! I'd have to agree with you on these. Especially 1, 2 and 6. What the heck is going on with John Mayer?

Mrsblogalot said...

Sounds like 4 and 7 were a perfect match after all. Wait until the tabloids find out they showed up together here. Scandal!!

Vodka Logic said...

I am not familiar with The Knack but I have to say you are spot on with 1-9. I couldn't have said it better myself.

Nothing feels better than a good bitch and you do it well... thanks, I loved it.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

John Baird is GAY? Holy crap!

Paul Benjamin said...

I agree with you on 9 of the 10 things listed. We would SO get along!

I won't tell you the one I disagree with you on. It's slightly embarrasing... :)

Aaron said...

Perfect list!

Frau said...

Totally annoyed too! I grew up to The Knack...50's is way too young.

Stan in NH said...

Oh, I do love it when you bitch. I did love the Knack and was sorry to hear that Doug Fieger died so young.
And John Mayer does need to grow up.

#1 her and jessica simpson who decries against america's obsession with weight. i expect she'll turn into a porker withing one year or two. can you tell she's among my favorites?!?...

#3 the conservatives don't have what the republican have, a cabin log something something... are americans more "progressive"?????

#4+5 john who???? there are more blacks than there are gays, i think. that's why the bigger uproar... a simple matter of demographics, or maybe we're not as prone to such outcry. and they say we are the drama queens...
john mayers needs to shut up, period...

#6 jay johnny-wannabe leno.
where's joan rivers when you need her???

#10 leave lindsay alone, or i'm gonna have a "crocker" moment. you hear??? leave lindsay alone!!!!! why do you have to bitch against lindsay??? what has she ever done to you??? leave lindsay alone!!!! whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!

May I just add Kirstie Alley's endless fat shows. Yes, she's doing another one. You're fat. I get it. Now go away.

Wow. That Fieger death is a bummer. I would always sing "My Corona..."

Brahm said...

Holy crap? Kirstie Alley is doing another fat show? That is just wrong.

I have no comment on the Lindsey Lohan thing... I had some empathy (not a lot) until the Ungaro fashion train wreck, now I just want her to vanish forever.

And Paul - I am insanely curious... do we have a Bachelor fan on our hands???

Kevin said...

John Baird was outted? Wow. Can the non-gays keep him ... pleeaassee?

Michael Mattison said...

Brahm -- Love this post of choice tid-bits from the everyday media scene.
Would love to hear your overall take on Canada's Olympics once they're over. (Or now, if you felt like it!)
Have you been to Vancouver for the games, or are you planning to?
Take care,
Michael

Brahm said...

Hey Michael - no, havent been to Van for games, don't feel like standing in line for hours and hours...

I ahve mixed feelings so far as I watch from the comfort of my basement, am sure will rant after they are over!

Adam M said...

Sorry? I missed this John Baird thing. I didn't know it was a secret.

Everyone in Ottawa knows John Baird's gay. He even shows up to some gay events.

Anonymous said...

John is a good musician and quite handsome, but he like all of us must be careful what they say and how they say it. It's too bad, c'mon John. As for Baird, that is new to me and now that if it is true, just because he is gay, does not mean you have to like him or back up his views or his government. Thanks for listening Brahms.
You keep up the good work. Take care.
