This fucking Are You Hot? TV Show
    #1432427 - 04/05/03 11:03 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Somebody fucking shoot me in the head for turning on my TV. It's like a window into the necrotic consumerslave heart of our culture.

I fucking LOVE how america loves to see brutal honesty on their idiotic television shows but if anyone were to sit there on TV and speak that brutally honestly about their country they would FREAK out. Opiate of the masses, no shit.

I invite you all to speak. Honestly.

This is an intervention. Thanks for being honest about your problem; there are people who can help you.

Talk to me, America. Let me feel your pain. Your rage. Your self-loathing and your contempt for the other. Your hypocritical self-delusions, justifications. Tell me what prescription medicine helps you sleep.

That show sucks so much it's funny.


Does that make sense?

TV isn't relevant to politics, activism, or law? Watch Law and Order. You'll see. Hehe.

Oh man, I totally agree with you.

I turned on my tv tonight and saw that stupid shit. I can't even believe that this is now what attracts viewers and publicity, how 'hot' you are. These girls are anorexic and the guys are all airhead aspiring models.

I already hate the repuation we, as Americans, have...now this shit is coming along? Christ...

Geez, there's a show called are you hot? I thought it was a general post about tv bullshit. I didn't rrealize it was a show. Guess I wouldn't since all I watch is PBS and movies.

I wouldn't know.  I haven't had tv reception since 1988.

They do still come with an off switch don't they?

Everyone should disable and then get rid of their TV.

Good for you Mr. M! I too stopped watching TV on anything approaching a regular basis about three or four years ago. Changed my life almost as much as mushrooms did (although the former might not have happened had it not been for the latter). I was stoned last night for the first time in a while and my girlfriend was channel surfing and came across that show and it blew my mind. I didn't really intend for this to be a thread about tv per se, but whatever... My point was more that Americans seem to have developed this new insatiable lust for brutal insulting honesty when it comes to telling people that they are ugly, or not talented, or that they fall anywhere short of the perfect ideal that has been constructed, but if anyone were to sit there and be that honest about the United States of America and its history and current social realities, probably 90 per cent of those people would be hurling something at their tv if they didn't have a gun nearby...

I don't watch TV, but it is a fascinating subject to explore for me, like many others. To just suggest that we shut it off is nice and all, but isn't it kind of like sticking our heads in the sand? I looked it up and 10 million people watched this dumb dumb dumb show back in february, and it was the third rated show that night. This is apparently where millions upon millions of people's heads are right now in this country. I don't need to watch TV to know it is worthy of my attention, you know?

Exactly.

See what Andrew Weil says about watching in his book, 8 Weeks to Optimum Health:

"I have asked you to try a one-day news fast this week. I do not want you to become uninformed about the state of the world, but I note that paying attention to news commonly results in anxiety, rage, and other emotional states that probably impede the healing system. I have given you many suggestions about diet, about nourishing your body. I think it is useful to broaden the concept of nutrition to include what we put into our consciousness as well. Many people do not exercise much control over that and as a result take in a lot of mental junk food. My goal in asking you to practice news fasting through the Eight-Week Program is for you to discover that you have the power to decide how much of this material you want to let in. I have no objection to your turning on the news for information you really need; I worry about people who turn it on compulsively or unconsciously, who are addicted to the news and the emotional ups and downs it provides. Observe any difference you feel in your state of mind and body when you opt to ignore the news. Are you less anxious? less stressed? less fearful? When you get to the end of the Eight-Week Program, I will ask you again, and at that time you can decide how much news you want to let back into your life."

I watch zero news on television and severely limit how much news I let into my life. My life is relatively stress-free and you don't see me flaming others and I rarely get angry.

Think there is a correlation? I know there is.

Cheers,

1st off I didnt know this was an actual show, its really sad. Secondly, a friend adn I are very political, but we often agree that sometimes it is just too much and we just turn it off, and chill and live a little. Its important to be informed, but not to the point that you are on a verge of a heart attack.

I have saved about $1,800.00 since I pulled the plug in 1988.

And lots of stress, migraines, etc.

I never understood people who pay for cable. It has as much advertising if not more than regular tv, the shows are mostly crap, etc etc.
