Well, Duh?

28 03 2011

Few blogs offer much more than regurgitation of information we already readily have available. It is immaterial if the writer is left-wing, right-wing, or a centrist (or just freaking insane). Many blogs convey the writer’s attitude – good, bad, annoying, or otherwise. Rarely do we read anything thought provoking. There are many exceptions of course (subscribe to Redhead Writing for an example of great), but most seem fairly lame.

I recently reviewed my own blogs over the past year – with a mild disclaimer that (as I have claimed before) I am definitely ADD. My meanderings are all over the place. Unfortunately, this is what the inside of my head looks like – kind of a train wreck – it is just not wired correctly. But mostly my response to reading my own blogs was the same reaction I have to reading most other blogs, and that was “Well, Duh?”

I then wanted to write a few paragraphs to ramble about other things I don’t understand, but there is too much stuff out there. I hoped to make a little sense out of my own thought processes, but to little avail.

For instance, the first thing that came to mind was the Kardashian trend. I have seen them interviewed and cannot find a reason why anybody wanted to talk to them in the first place. From what little I understand, one of the Kardashians is famous for licking a wrapper; not sure why that is important or how the other very eloquent Kardashian girls became popular.

Following Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, Snookie or many of the other celebrities getting press has always intrigued me because I can’t see any reason to read about them anytime – drunk, sober, stupid, or otherwise. I have to admit I have been a big fan of Robert Downey, Jr. for a long time – always wanted to see him succeed because I believe he is very talented. I felt the same way about River Phoenix, Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, and many others – so I guess it all depends who you like or dislike – certainly many people feel that Snookie has many redeeming qualities and I am just missing the point somehow. That is how it usually works – well duh?
