America, sometimes I just have no clue about you


Transformers? Seriously?

It's based on a commercial for toys, for Pete's sake. From the 1980's. You care about this entertainment more than anything else that's out there? Wow.

Mind you, I'm not saying you should be watching opera, or hand-wringing over the latest Harry Potter muggle-musings, or even preferring alternatives like Ratatouille and the cross-merchandising products thereof. I'm just saying: Hasbro robot war, redux? It's 2007. Just what kind of idiot do you have to be to 'reminisce' over this completely mindless piece of feature-length advertising?

Is it really, really hot where you are right now? I mean way, way fucking hot? Because I could understand spending $70 million in one weekend for 2:23 of theatre A/C if you were desperate. That would make sense to me.

I don't even want to know if you've seen it and you read this blog, however scant the chance. Just...don't. Don't want to know.

I love Netflix. I don't have to pay attention to any of this crap.

You're old. You're not a child of the 80's. Go watch BladeRunner and shut up.

And have you noticed all of the crossover advertising? Car commercials all over the place with cars that are getting crushed or transforming...

Good grief
