I don’t watch tv, however I help pay a cable bill for my couch potato roommates. I guess the main reason is that the internet has so much to offer; it actually challenges me and makes me think. Moreover I get shit on demand. If I want to view the latest episode of Samurai Champloo (only broadcasted in Japan) I go and download the torrent, soon there after I’m viewing it, commercial free and fan dubbed.
Some of my entries in this blog have already put me in a hot water with some acquaintances. Expect people to be living through there online life a little too much. It won’t surprise me to see as a Yahoo headline “Teen kills 2 classmates over Blog entry”.
My boy passed me this digusting porno video of former “wrestler” Chyna with some other washed up “wrestler”. I peeped it out of pure curiousity only to be scarred for life. The video attempts to a “stolen home video” but was obviously made for mass production. Why do thes people do such stupid things? I guess just to extend there 15 minutes of fame. The bright side of these things is that the public forgets really quickly. Uou can do release a tape “randomly” right after your latest film/album bombs to divert attention from your failure. Expect a Britney or Timberlake tape in the future.
I still haven’t figured out how this works. By the time you’ve been hit it’s too late. As people emigrate more and more to the net, it becomes more revelant and acceptable. Online buzz has turned a former daytime talk show contestant into a West Coast thug (multi platinum) rapper. I’m talking about Game. Dude came out of nowhere with no single before “How We Do”. Mixtape appearences that were downloaded by hip hop listeners boosted Game’s buzz. Moreover word of mouth with movies like Napoleon Dynamite that proved very effective. For our generation, businesses know that the net is the best way to get us. If everyone is talking about it, it MUST be worth you’re time, right?
