The Power You Don’t Have [Game of Thrones s06 e10 Finale]

Unless you have a ring that turns you invisible, leave dragons alone.

Delusional Peasants

The Game of Thrones season 06 finale was well-written.

The writers spoke to something that I’ve wanted to say for a long time, but didn’t have a concrete way to put it until I saw it play out in this episode.

This episode had instance after instance after instance after instance of people thinking they had power that they never had and finding out that they didn’t have that power.

This is where a lot of people trip themselves up IRL (In Real Life). They believe in the power they don’t have.

Part of this is because of the Loser Society that we’re currently experiencing.

Everybody wants to act like people are equals, when we are not.

Everybody wants to act like winners don’t get or even DESERVE more than losers.

So you have people who attempt to claim the spoils of the winners even though they’re actually losers.

When they see other losers such as themselves get away with this, they figure they can do it too and try their luck walking the tightrope between high-rise buildings.

Halfway across….. A gust of wind pushes them off the rope and they realize that they actually needed *SKILL* to do what they were trying to do without killing themselves.

Skill they don’t have.

Meanwhile, a lot of people are serfs who are allowed free reign over “their” land until their actions run afoul of what THE KING wanted them to do, and then they get wiped out, replaced, and more serfs work that land as if the first set was never there.

That easily-replaced set of serfs perceives themselves as kings because they think that they’re self-governing.

They’re approximately as autonomous as the fish in your fishbowl.

Sure.. All the fish have to do is swim around, eat fish food, play tag with each other, look at the humans on the other side of the glass… But the human is providing their entire world. The human paid for the tank. The human pays for the electricity that runs to the tank. The human buys the food. The human puts the food in the tank.

That same human, if properly provoked, will scoop you out of that bowl and flush you down the toilet. Continue reading “The Power You Don’t Have [Game of Thrones s06 e10 Finale]”

“Jersey Shore” Italy: Walk Like A Duck

Jersey Shore” was complete garbage this week.

As I predicted, when I found out that MTV was sending a bunch of non-Itaian-speaking people to Italy for no reason other than their chosen social subculture has been stereotypically attributed to Italian-AMERICANS (having nothing at all to do with Italians in Italy), they can’t socialize with anyone but themselves, so the shows are entirely about the boring, redundant interactions between the housemates.

“Jersey Shore” Italy: Double Header

They aired two episodes of Jersey Shore this week, so there’s a lot to cover today.

If I miss anything or you want to discuss a particular topic, leave a comment below or find the thread on Facebook or Google+.

Virgins Are Useful

We ended last episode with the Jersey Shore housemates bagging a couple of chicks… To be specific.. The one chick that Mike’s been able to pull since he’s been in Italy, this American chick (of all people to meet in Italy), just so happens to have a twin sister. Mike had had plans of hooking up with the both of them until Deena pulled the robbery on him and started making out with the extra twin.

Before this happened, the extra twin had announced that she’s a virgin, which we all know means absolutely nothing, because nobody’s going to take your word for something like that. We just go “yeah, yeah, yeah” and then see what happens when we get back to the crib. Continue reading ““Jersey Shore” Italy: Double Header”

“Jersey Shore” Italy, Episode 02

“Jersey Shore” went pretty much as I suspected, this week.

MVP/D - Jersey Shore

Pauly

They started out with Pauly kissing Deena, about which I said last week:

“This season, it looks like Deena’s sweating Pauly. At the end of this premiere Italy episode, she starts feebly making out with him at the club, and Pauly looks like.. Well… Pauly DOESN’T look like he’s really very interested in kissing her.

I would say that Pauly’s look fluctuated between being embarrassed that he was being filmed tonguing Deena down on camera, and looking like he felt like he was licking a used fire hydrant.”

Jersey Shore Italy Season Predictions

GFF: Grenade-Free FoundationJersey Shore was filmed in Italy this season.

Of course, this doesn’t make any sense, because a) three of them aren’t even Italian, and b) none of them except for Vinny actually SPEAKS Italian.

It also doesn’t make any sense, because just like they didn’t get any play in Miami, because no chicks are checkin’ for their style down there, no chicks are looking for spray-tanned Americans in Italy. Continue reading “Jersey Shore Italy Season Predictions”

Why “Jersey Shore” SUCKED This Season

I’ve been writing my critique/roundup/recap series about MTV’s television show “Jersey Shore” for quite some time now.

If you’ve been following along, you’re aware that I’ve been complaining (as has everyone else that I know that watches the show) about how it’s been getting worse and worse.

The storylines suck (yes, there are WRITERS on “reality” shows. They’re responsible for deciding which footage gets aired, creatively crafting a character, by, for instance, showing every instance they can that make him or her look like a stone-cold IDIOT and deleting all the evidence that this person is actually very smart, but just does stupid things once in a while). The content sucks. What they choose to focus on sucks. What they choose NOT to focus on sucks.

I’ve also been trying to figure out WHY Jersey Shore has been so worthless recently. Continue reading “Why “Jersey Shore” SUCKED This Season”

Jersey Shore S03 E09 [Part 01]

Just like I suspected, this week’s episode of Jersey Shore SUUUUUUUUCKED! 😀

They should have called this one “Cutting Room Floor”. I saw so much footage that should never have made it to television. It’s obvious that they’re just using filler content to stretch the length of this season. Shows left and right are having their season finales and Jersey Shore just goes on and on. o_O

This episode demonstrates why I had predicted during the Miami season that season 03, where they return to the ACTUAL Jersey Shore, should be the last one in the series and they should put it to rest after this. There’s no more storyline. Nothing new’s going to happen. Continue reading “Jersey Shore S03 E09 [Part 01]”

Jersey Shore S03 E08

So far, Ronnie has set males of the species back at least 50,000 years.

This week’s episode of Jersey Shore was entitled “The Great Depression”.

It probably should have been called “The Great VIEWER Depression”.

How is it that you decide to give the people who are the least effective at living MORE air-time instead of less? o_O

I had been SOOOOO looking forward to Ronnie & Sammi dropping out of the storyline entirely that I was just barely able to resist fast-forwarding all of Ronnie’s redundant scenes.

Very weak episode. I’m not suspecting next week’s is going to be any better, judging by the coming attractions they showed at the end. Continue reading “Jersey Shore S03 E08”

Jersey Shore s03 e07 [Part 01]

“Jersey Shore”, Season 03, Episode 07 was entirely painful to watch. 🙂

I mean, I really didn’t want to watch some of it. I wanted to fast-forward to another section, but I really needed to absorb all of the tomfoolery in order to get a proper grasp on what I feel happened.

Where’s The Disclaimer?

First of all, right off the bat.. MTV has done it again, completely whitewashing Female -> Male violence… AGAIN. I was already tired of this, as I’ve mentioned in previous posts, but the saga continues. Continue reading “Jersey Shore s03 e07 [Part 01]”

Jersey Shore Season 03 Premiere

Reader “Stephanie” wanted a breakdown of this week’s Jersey Shore season-opener, so here it is.

If you haven’t seen the show yet, go read something else, because I’m about to talk about what happened. Continue reading “Jersey Shore Season 03 Premiere”
