NaBloPoMo: Vicious, Scandalous Cycle

Advertisements

F.H. Bradley said, “There are persons who, when they cease to shock us, cease to interest us.” Do we live in a society that needs scandal?

We don’t need scandal. However, our society loves scandal. You could say we even thrive on it. The media seems to feed off of the public’s appetite for the next thing.
It’s a vicious cycle. The public complains about how awful the media is, how they act like vultures. However, all of the Mr. and Mrs. Jones’ are the ones watching the news, reading the newspaper or whatever story is trending on Facebook.
I’m guilty of it too. I read the paper to see what kind of crazy things are happening. Then I read the jail roster, mostly to see if any of my ex-boyfriend’s are in jail.
My friend just posted a funny picture of a cat looking out the window to be nosy. It’s true. I have another friend that has binoculars for such an occasion. He says they are for bird-watching but we know the truth.

“Just a small town girl – living in a lonely world.” Concert tickets are practically essential. Musicals are the key to life. I like movies, music,books, and corny jokes.

When asked how she feels about writing, Morgan has said: “To write; to paint with words as an artist bedecks his canvas with hues and shades and layers of pigmentation; to sing a melody upon which the gaze may linger and over which the heart may muse again and again: to create visual splendor with grammar and language is the most beguiling form of intoxication in which I could ever take pleasure.” .

  2. Kate @ Did That Just Happen? – I'm an just over 40, single mother of a wonderful teenage boy, who is an endless source of wonder and laughs and gray hair. I may have a small life, but it's full to the brim, and frequently I just have to stop and ask myself "Did that just really happen??" Enjoy!

    Okay, now that was funny! I will peek through the blinds if there are flashing lights on our neighborhood, not gonna lie! Fortunately, it’s rare for that to happen! I’m so bad about not following scandals and such… I just can’t handle that much drama in my life!

      I think that’s why I quit watching soap operas. Now there is some drama! 🙂 There’s plenty in real life sometimes.

      I know! I live in a rural neighborhood so a cop car is not as common. Probably once a week or less.

  3. Russel Olaf – Thane, India – Hi, I'm Russel D'Silva from Bombay (Mumbai), India – an entertainment journalist and film critic working for a leading Bollywood movie website. I created this blog as an outlet to express all my bustling cinematic emotions, which my bosses wouldn't allow me to publish for fear of pissing some Indian cinema bigwigs off. Additionally, this blog also gives me an opportunity to write about movies from all over the world, something I can't do at work since my company concentrates solely on Bollywood cinema. I've also had the good fortune of working on some short films in the capacity of an actor and writer. My other hobbies include cricket, tennis, reading novels, working out, and kickboxing.
