Bonus Quote of the Day


"No, not a big fan (of reality TV). Like, forgive me, I don’t know if you’re friends with her — but who the hell is Kim Kardashian? Like, who are these people and why are they famous and why are they advertising things and being asked their opinions about things? I just don’t understand what these people did to be in a position of having everyone ask their opinions about stuff. I mean, if there’s something about her personality or something that she’s accomplished or her philosophy on something — but beyond that I don’t understand what’s happening. It’s actually frightening."

-- Edie Falco in New York Magazine

For that matter, who the hell is Edie Falco to the majority of folks around the world?

Hmmm. First glance at her picture, I thought it was a Kardashian...

What Al said. And I would add that fame worship is a juvenile (and frankly dumb) preoccuption.

There isn't a human being who has earn unfettered adoration. And any association you dream you have with such a 'perfect' specimen is a tawdry fantasy which clearly casts no glory on you personally.

ANY type of kowtowing and genuflecting to "betters" is a demeaning exercise.

It's okay to admire but vital to maintain some personal dignity and self control (i.e. shut yer trap about your crushes; no one gives a damn about 'em).

Develop your own adult and intact identity and don't make a simpering, public ass of yourself while you're working on it.

Man, I feel better now...

Kardashian girls were actually on Joy Behar the other night talking about the disgust they have for reality shows that show people doing nothing but arguing and drinking and partying. Because their show really offers something deeper and more worthwhile. Because they're not rolling in the same slop with those pigs who DRINK and ARGUE on TELEVISION!

It's simple, Edie. You can work your ass off perfecting your craft, earn the respect of your peers and people who enjoy your work.
Or. Or you can film your cootchie getting stuffed by a gigantic cock, leak the footage on the internet and have your agent call Bravo the next day.
What's not to get here?

Edie Falco is a damned fine actress who has been working for many years to achieve the recognition that she has. Kim is a stupid slut who put her cooter on the Interwebs. Nuff said.
