Some folks find it a rocky landscape. Media is powerful. Unless one is in deep denial the reality is that it’s a me, me era. If you have principles or scruples get to the rear of the bus. If it ain’t about you then who? I’m thinking that maybe nature will soon start issuing alter ego.

The rise to the illusion of fame is compelling. Fame is a must. No longer a daydream to scores of young minds.
I’ve often joked that television has mastered the art of packaging shit. The smell is become an acquired taste.
Walking talking Barbie dolls. Uncoordinated puffs of smoke and mirrors. Brings us to a question. Is being famous
the same as being relevant? Somehow the mind wants to believe one is a result of the other. Could this be? Sarah Palin, enigma but how does this fit the discussion. Beyonce, Taylor Swift, any takers on relevance?

Defining relevance :Directly related, connected, or pertinent to a topic; Not out of date; current. So this would make the question relative to say the least. Hell no it doesn’t. Poor as folks are due to low paying jobs , high bills, debt etc. do not give a damn about Grammy award winners. Someone has to have the balls to say relevance is something that serves us as a whole. It effects our quality of life. Theory says that actions and folks whom we revere should actually matter. W R O N G TIME W R ON G STATION.

I pray that eventually there will come a time when folks cease to admire folk whom are famous only because someone else said so. Who is it that decides what’s in or out? sure isn’t you. He who holds the purse strings
fiddle the tune. Those cats don’t even know you. They don’t live where you do. They truly don’t care about what bills you may have. Just what tooth paste you purchase. Feminine deodorant, Basketball shoes, Cell phone
apps, dating habits, 4 wheel drive. Get it? you are simply a C ON S U M E R . You buy whatever is available with funds and thoughts you don’t even own.

Some flat butt, fake breasted, bleached hair, airbrushed tattoo image sings an auto tuned mechanized tune and you say wow she must be good or else she wouldn’t be on the screen. Sucker.
Relevant is your moms. Your school teachers. Your coach, your books, your education. Your sense of your own worth. Stop throwing it away. Cease imitating substitutes and hype. Get a grip .

With all of the saturation that has produced more music sites and videos than in recent years, the industry has taken yet another major hit. Top grossing bands lost money on both the CD’s as well as touring receipts.What seems to be the problem?

Basically,folks didn’t have the money to meet the high prices. It’s a no brain answer but, you would be surprised at how sense is taken for granted in the music machine. The other day I watched commercials on cable trying to get the younger crowd to check out the videos. The production was childish. Lip syncing was awful, and the choreography was impish like children’s nursery shows. Is this what they think of the consumer?

The award shows, and so called talent shows are another problem. It drives the up and comers to think of success over substance. Goal driven projects that are simply a means to and end as opposed to simply being good.

When the top draws are senior citizens with aging fan bases there has to be someone on duty saying “we’ve got to stop the bleeding”. Hopefully 2011 will bring at least the appearance of progress. Start with the problem. It’s less taste more filling proposition has to go.
