Take out the garbage

December 31, 2008 - Blaine Hyska
I’m always amazed how many times Hollywood honors itself. No one seems to mention it, but try keeping track of the network productions that name the best dressed, top vocalists, greatest movie moments, etc., etc., etc. Every time you turn on the tube, some Hollywood or music star is holding a golden trophy. No wonder those Hollywood stars believe they are above everyone else. When you think of it, they’re actually a bunch of empty suits. Someone, a script writer, has to give them the words to read, and then someone else, a director, has to show them how to read them. For that, they are honored and glorified. To look at the way most people act, you would think that they are messengers from above. Give me a break. Would you be glued to the tube if the show was about the best tool-maker at a factory? How about a show about the shift worker who had no sick days for two or three years? Don’t get me wrong. Movies and TV are great entertainment. They are a way to pass the time on a cold winter’s evening. But that’s it. The problem I have is America seems way too caught up on who’s wearing what, who’s dating who, and who’s in rehab. Who cares? Instead of giving them a red carpet, let’s start treating trash as trash. Take out the garbage.
