The Spin Zone

This is the twat post.

First of all a commenter posted that 'Buck' is a twat. I agree that he is a twat, but for the time being I am going to continue to post his videos because he is funny. I also think he does a good job of putting the pieces of the reality TV shows together in an interesting way.

The second twat of today is Sanjaya. I have this theory that people don't like Sanjaya. I know this isn't a shock to a lot of people, but why do so many people keep voting for him. I think it is because America hates American Idol. I think that there is a subconscious hope that if a crappy singer wins, the show will be shown for the farce that it is. Imagine if Sanjaya wins, and he puts out that album all winners, even bad ones like Ruben Studdard put out, and it bombs. Sales rank low in the thousands, as it is the worst collection of musical attempts since The Backstreet Boys stopped making music. American Idol will go on, but if the same process is continued next year, and we get another Sanjaya as a winner, then the show will fall apart. Already I think more viewers watch American Idol to see the bad singers than the good, the tipping point may have been as far back as William Hung.

Now for twats on an international level. I can see how this incident in the gulf between the UK and Iran is going to come down to an issue of terms. The UK is going to insist that the soldiers are hostages, which implies that they were taken without cause. The Iranians on the other hand are going to insist that they are prisoners, with the implication that they are being held for breaking the law. It is too soon to see how this will end, it could be pushed into a full scale conflict, if that is what the UK, US or Iranian governments want to happen. It could also just as easily be solved through diplomacy, or a raid of a small force of troops, in a snatch and run. I think that Iran is playing with fire, and that any of the players in this drama that obstruct a peaceful resolution are doing the world a disservice.

Also who ever started the big rumor, or to-do about the kiss between Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox as being such a hot lesbian kiss is a twat. The video of the kiss is now making the rounds of the gossip sites, and it is hardly hot or lesbian.

Ok that is enough for now, if you read my site, you are probably not a twat.
