I haven't had cable in about a year and a half and I almost never watch TV. Reading about this only reaffirms my decision.

Have you heard Tommy Lee's new song? It's called

"I made a sex tape with a baywatch babe, and now I have my own reality show (I love America)"

The Tommy Lee show was painfully scripted. The reality show about the Playboy Mansion on E! is much more interested and at least gives the illusion of being somewhat based in reality.

Tommy's in his media whore phase right now, must have drained his bank account.

I'm sure there are worse parents than Tommy, but you probably don't win father of the year letting your son drown in the pool during a birthday party.

FWIW, Journey>Motley Crue, 'course that's not saying much

Why is it that anyone with a counter-point on here has to come along and tell me how much I rock? Ohh.. your sarcasm bites sooo hard... make it stop! Even if you like shiatty music, he still beat up Pamela in an idiotic drunken rage and screwed up his kids lives from thereafter. This, to me, implies L000ZZER status. Guys who cheat on or beat up famous, beautiful women that they are married to should not get a second chance at fame, especially if they have no talent.

See, that time I doubled the cool, just for you!

A) You don't need cable to view this sunshine

B) My ten p.m. Tuesday nights watching Rescue Me are just as good as whatever it is you do by your whale oil lantern. Same with watching whatever sports I watch, whatever comedies I watch, and whatever dramas I watch you elitist prick. Kill your television is dead. People watch it. People need an escape. "How about spending time with your children and reading them a book!?" I don't have any, so my free time is my free time and if that is free time watching The Shield, or Nip/Tuck or re-runs of Buffy or SVU, or daily watching of my Red Sox, well, so be it Jedi. That doesn't make you better than me jackass. "But..But..I listen to Click and Clack, and Garrison and Says You and Morning Edition, I'm hip to the world." So do I.

Here is some insight into Tommy's stay.

(1) He did not stay in a dorm on campus. They have a shot of the dorm, but he actually stayed in Federal Place Apartments; off campus about three blocks...on 9th and O Street.

(2) He did not stay for a full semester like he stated in the MTV article. He was here for 3-4 weeks at best.

(3) He did not knock the bottom out of the hot tutor. She is dating a football player, and is in the middle of her PhD.

(4) Everything is scripted. It is not reality, unless reality sets us up for every situation, and we know what is coming.

(5) The University did not get paid anything, however, with 22+ minutes of airtime each week and the pub outside of that, it is estimated that UNL would have to shell out 50 million to get this type of exposure; at least that is what the Chancellor stated.

Thought you should know....from one who does.

That is so much bullshiat. I'm not saying the Crue is high art but they did rock. Journey is the kind of heartfelt pussy shiat you play around a chick you want to nail. Even Home Sweet Home had a decent guitar solo.

"I thought it was one of the better ones until someone inside production let it slip that everything was scripted."

Eh, it was obvious enough without anyone in production letting it "slip". He was never even enrolled in school there. He just attended a couple of classes last fall with a camera crew so they'd have classroom footage to use. He did actually march w/ the drumline at the nebraska/baylor game, though. If I were UNL student/faculy/staff I would've raised holy hell over it, as many of them did.

his blonde tutor is total hotness. i realy doubt she plans on being a med student. porn would be a better career for her.

3) He did not knock the bottom out of the hot tutor. She is dating a football player, and is in the middle of her PhD...Thought you should know....from one who does.


Ok, to the Boobieser, you are a stupid farker, period. Natalie is a sweet girl, but more importantly she is ten times smarter than you on her dumbest day. The show, while making her seem smart, doesn't even begin to give her the props she is due. She works damn hard, yet is hot and social. She didn't do the show as a springboard to anything, really. She had offers to model and to go into acting and she turned them down for medical school (she is there now, you idiot).

She is in medical school at UNMC, but everything else you said it right on.

nbrfwhoooo:

I'm impressed.  It's been a while since someone has made such a thorough assessment of my personality and attitudes based on two sentences.  Quite astute. If I may respond to a few of your points, however. . . .
A) You don't need cable to view this sunshine
I gathered.  This was merely to illustrate my realization that it was silly for me to pay for something I wasn't using.  But it was an extraneous detail, you're right.
B) My ten p.m. Tuesday nights watching Rescue Me are just as good as whatever it is you do by your whale oil lantern.
I don't have an oil lamp.  My ex does, though, and she reads by it quite frequently.  If you think I'm an elitist with regard to television, you should hear her views.
Same with watching whatever sports I watch, whatever comedies I watch, and whatever dramas I watch you elitist prick.
I never said otherwise.
Kill your television is dead.
I don't recall sending out a rallying cry for mass tube-icide.
People watch it.
Yes, they do.  And I hear it's quite popular.
People need an escape.
Yes they do.  An escape which may take whatever form best suits the people in question's needs and desires.
"How about spending time with your children and reading them a book!?" I don't have any, so my free time is my free time and if that is free time watching The Shield, or Nip/Tuck or re-runs of Buffy or SVU, or daily watching of my Red Sox, well, so be it Jedi.
Did I get you on a bad day?  Did someone else actually ask you questions of this nature earlier and you're only now formulating the answers?
That doesn't make you better than me jackass.
Again, I never said it did.
"But..But..I listen to Click and Clack, and Garrison and Says You and Morning Edition, I'm hip to the world." So do I.
And you are to be commended.
/I am sort of happy that you haven't flushed out your bio.
A combination of laziness and social awkwardness/phobia on my part.  Your loss, really; I'm actually a real sweetheart once you get to know me.

I made two comments: first, that I watch very little television; almost nothing on TV over the last few years has done much of anything for me (I think the last show I watched was the ep of CSI Wheaton guested on - it also didn't do much to dissuade me, although I'd seen other eps in that franchise that I liked quite a bit).  Therefore, I go elsewhere for my entertainment and/or escape.  I do miss "South Park" and "The Daily Show" and I've heard enough good things about "Battlestar Galactica" that I've considered resuscribing to cable, but I'm still not sure it would be worth the financial investment.  Second, that nothing in the linked article did anything to change the above view.  You have extrapolated so amazingly much from these two exceedingly simple sentences that I have to wonder what's really behind all the vitriol.

As for what I do by the light of my hypothetical whale oil lantern, I read.  I watch DVDs.  I listen to music.  I bicycle.  I take care of my plants, cats, and fish.  I masturbate to visions of past girlfriends and women who wouldn't give me the time of day.  I read way too much FARK.  It's a humble life, but I've come to accept it.

I pity the fool who makes fun of Journey!
 
2005-08-27 08:39:49 PM  
I doubt the kids at that college know much about Tommy Lee's music. They just know him as the guy that slapped around Pam Anderson and has a big wang. I think Journey has held up better than most crappy 80's metal anyway.
 
2005-08-27 09:07:34 PM  
There were some really good metal bands. Motley Crue was not one of them.

/neither was Poison
//nor Warrant

toneskin is the Nicest Guy She Knows, Best Friend Forever, but nothing more because she doesn't want to ruin their friendship.

FredGarvin, Tommy Lee didn't let his kid drown in the pool. He let someone else's kid drown in his pool at one of his kid's birthday parties.

Hahahaha, nice. You have me all figured out. And you have figured out lines from 10th grade.

'Don't take this to anyone else. We'll write you a check right now.'

Isn't that what Pamela said?

And how big is the market for nude, washed up rock guys wanting a reality show that they would worry about him flashing someone else?
 
2005-08-28 04:53:31 AM  
Regarding Motley Crue, the first two albums were very raw and while not exactly Motorhead, they were pretty brutal rock records. Everything from "Theatre of Pain" on was sterile, pussified hair metal.

People who really don't understand Rock N Roll would not like the first two albums. Go back to your Cure and Morrisey so you can pretend that you are more enlightened than the vulgarians and simpletons who enjoy loud guitar playing.

OccamsWhiskers: But if you believe anything on television is unscripted, I think you're naive. Some of it may be mostly unrehearsed, with lots of ad libbing in the details.

And this certainly goes for anything that calls itself "improv".


I hope you're just referring to improv on TV - why can't people believe that improv groups really make stuff up on the spot? I'm in a college group, and we get asked all the time if we bring back stuff we've done before. We don't!
