I Got Nothing.

For the life of me I do not understand the Oprah phenomenon. Go with me here though. The other night my roommate, a diehard Oprah fan, starts watching a tape of the show she missed during the day, this show was about swingers, not only was it about swingers but the people on the show were thirty � forty something adult professionals with children. One couple was originally going to stay in shadow but decided, God knows why, to come out. (So to speak) I know I am young but something about this seems particularly grotesque. I am not sure if it was because I did not find any of these couples particularly attractive or because the thought of people my parents age going around to �clubs� to have sex with various people kind of distasteful. Who knows maybe my fear of bacteria comes into play here. I hate to say it but I think Oprah was really getting into it. She is the ultimate voyeur in my opinion and she does it in a way that makes people say �yeah�. Go Oprah. Adults love to watch this stuff as it makes their dirty little thoughts seem so much cleaner.

Anyway I got nothing.

This was going through my mind while writing a paper and waiting for the news of the Popes demise.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us Sadly Mitch Hedberg is really dead it was not an April fool�s joke. Don�t forget Darfur.

I think this blog is really written by a man but either way it's scary.

Respect is earned not given. Sorry.

Consider this.

Just food for thought.

Oprah is one woman who really can control a portion of society. I however don't like her. I don't see the big deal about her. As for that episode, I feel it is distasteful as well. I believe in good morals, so having sex with various people is a big no-no for me. I find it unfortunate that that is their main source of entertainment, but, to each their own I guess.

Hi, just bloghopped to your site :) I thought Oprah was supposed to be neutral? But I suppose having to report about swingers, that must say something about her, or she has run out of things to talk about on her show... or, it's just another marketing gimmick to raise the ratings. Eitherway, yea, swinging - that is gross! And then people wonder why Aids is spreading rampantly.

Actually, Oprah makes my clean thoughts dirty. Plus, I hate the books she recommends.

BTW, thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

I am SO glad to see another Anti-Oprah person out there! LOL I really dislike her. I think she is fake and, at times, very snobby. I hate it when she tries to copy the accents of her guests and I hate it that she holds people's hands when they try to hug her. Very annoying woman. I also saw the show on swingers (not by choice) and was really repulsed at these middle aged people screwing strangers in a club. That show did NOT need to be aired. How did that show help society as a whole?? It didn't. She's just a nasty woman.

You`re right. Most Americans aren`t passionate about politics...usually. Lately, things have gotten more intense. The election, the war, and other misfortune have given the news media entirely too much fodder. I`ve read a number of your posts, and enjoyed myself while doing so. Good stuff. You happened to catch the only serious thing I`ve written. I`d much rather find something to laugh about when I write.

Just to make you feel better, no, you're not. I can't stand it.

I navigated through the blogs so much I can't remember how I came across yours, but I enjoyed reading it.

Your blog is one of the top blogs I�ve ever seen, Blogger. I found it while googling for sites about dating. I also found this site - http://top-personals.net - which has some interesting resources related to dating, feel free to take a look.
