Media round-up, part deux

Um, one more thing.

Has anyone seen the show, Moment of Truth?

I just saw it last night, with N, for the first time. We tend to watch solely Netflix, and I tend to order socially-inspired films, about uplifting things like genocide, and war, and poverty and injustice. Because clearly, I am lighthearted individual who skips through the streets with a bouyant and joyful heart.

Flipping through the channels, we saw this show where people are hooked up to a lie detector test and reveal horrible secrets about themselves for cash prizes. Secrets that raze marriages, destroy families, ruin jobs.

Why? Why would you do this? Anyone?

    Because we worship the Almighty Dolla and with said cash prizes we can buy better spouses, pay for therapy and the best colleges, and don’t need jobs? Because money can buy happiness?

    It’s basically the same thing as going on Maury, or Jerry, or Montel. DH is always asking me why the hell a woman would go on national tv and say she doesn’t know who her baby’s father is, and have 10 or 15 men tested and none of them are the father. I always wonder about the ones who go on and let the world know they’re screwing around on their SO. I mean really, who gives a rat’s ass, other than the SO? I don’t care (which is why I don’t watch that crap, it just pisses me off, big time). It’s 15 minutes of fame (more like infamy) and that’s the only way some people are going to have that 15 minutes. I’ll do without it, thanks very much (no amount of money is worth being a laughing-stock).

    Two words: schadenfreude sells.

    Yeah, Brandon settled the remote on this show last night for a few minutes, too, while we bemoaned the state of the human race.
