This is the second part to my last journal entry. And it’s been bugging me for a while now as well. But the next thing that is irritating me is:
Now, I won’t say television was always good in the past. They had some really crappy shows in the past, just like they do today, but today’s “idea” of creativity is just taking a dump on viewers.
Take a look at MTV. It has gotten so retarded. This channel used to be for MUSIC only. That’s why it’s called Music TV! It used to be MUSIC VIDEOS mostly. Then they got rid of TRL for some odd reason…oh, because stupid reality shows and Podcast shows began to air, even though TRL was shysty too, considering it allowed a bunch of teeny boppers to vote! And even though, yes music sucked back then too, it showed a variety of artists so you wouldn’t have to sit through hours of your least favorite singer. Now, it’s just marathons and marathons of women acting like sleazes, running around pulling each other’s hair out. And one show was okay which was Flavor of Love…until EVERY SINGLE SHOW THAT AIRED MIMICKED IT! Now there is no variety on this Network. It is just infested with reality shows. Even VH1 is following suit. And VH1 is supposed to be VIDEOS! What the Hollow! But these stupid children don’t know variety. Even the teenagers have no concept of what creativity and variety means. MTV’s shows don’t even fit it’s title! Why is MOTHER AT 16 on there? That has nothing to do with music!
I really feel sorry for the boys. MTV isn’t for them anymore. At least it used to play music all genders could get into. Now, it’s a woman’s world….which I hate to be sexist, though I am a woman, but women are not very creative. All they want to see is drama, which becomes repetitive and just outright stupid.
MTV used to be for college students. Now these teeny boppers are taking over, ruining the network.
MTV used to promote new artists and give underground artists a chance. They used to promote artists. I mean they have MTV Iggy, but no one knows about that flapping show!
I know these kids have to have serious brain damage to feed into this poop. They like to eat this crap! This cowshisuck!
And apparently, MTV is not the only corporation that can’t read it’s own Network title. WTFOOL Cartoon Network?
Cartoon Network…LOL…Cartoon Network used to be a network full of great cartoons. In my youth, we grew up in the best age for television. We not only had old classic shows on Toonheads, which explained the history of the shows and showed the shows since 1930s, Tex Avery shows, Acme Hour full of Tweety and Bugs Bunny, Hanna-Barbara like Scooby-doo and Yogi Bear, but we had excellent original cartoons like Johnny Bravo, Powerpuff Girls, Dexter’s Laboratory, Samarai Jack, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Cow and Chicken, O Canada, Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Ed Edd and Eddy…..and last but not least Toonami. Toonami showed all the anime you could think of, plus some action animation, and super hero shows like Justice League with Batman and Superman, and there was even X-Men and Teen Titans and Puffy Ami Yumi. Even Captain Planet and Static Shock beats this shisuck, and they were the worst back in the day. I’d rather sit through five hours of Hamtaro before I watch this garbage!
Now look at Cartoon Network. They have stupid aspirin shows like 16 and TOTAL FLOCKING DRAMA ISLAND. They also got stupid crap shows like Camp Lazlo, if that hasn’t died already, and BEN 10! WTHALL! These shows can’t even relate to kids. Total Drama Island is like watching another MTV! I really do think that’s where Cartoon Network is getting some of their ideas for shows, I really do. 16? What kid who is watching Cartoon Network is 16? If they are, who would watch that crap? It’s a bunch of shallow cliche teenagers who do what the kids on MTV and Disney do (the other crapped-up channel). And where is the anime? These stupid kids don’t even watch anime. “It’s too boring” They said! Now I get it….kids are too dumb to even decipher a simple storyline in an anime. All they want is comedy. Again, no variety. It’s just the same stupid cartoons over and over again. Either they are total rip-offs of Spongebob *cough Flapjack cough* are more Disney Channel and MTV-like rip-off wannabe cartoons! And some kids have the nerve to defend this CRAP! *spit* They say “This is our generation. We don’t care about your golden age of cartoons.” Now I know the cartoons are brainwashing our kids to be idiots.
And wait that’s not all they adopted from MTV, they forgot they were CARTOON network and added CNREAL! Lord Have Mercy Kelly Clarkson Eddie Murpy! And kids defend this! Even a retarded person knows that cartoons have NOTHING to do with LIVE ACTION!! ARGGHHH!!!! It’s like the company never went to second grade before! Even a second grader knows that! They are not smarter than fifth graders! Oh wait, they are brainwashing these kids. Now the kids are just as dumb!
Cartoon Network must be making fun of their viewers right now saying, “Oh these kids are so stupid! They’ll watch anything as long as it looks like Hannah Montana.”
And that brings me to Disney. The person running Disney now is Anne Kathaway or something like that. Who the Hall put her in charge? Like I said, women, I’m sorry, but you are not very creative creatures when it comes to television. You suck in the variety department. And it’s as if Disney forgot all of it’s male viewers and are totally feeding into the female teeny-boppers. Isn’t that sexist? Oh, but now they have Disney XD, which many people might not have if they don’t have on Demand. And with that got rid of Toon Disney…sighs…what happened to the days when Disney was for everyone? The whole family. In fact, Hannah Montana wasn’t the face of Disney, Mickey Mouse was…and you know what happened to him? They threw him on a retarded show called Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. They are humiliating an iconic Disney character. Walt Disney would kill himself all over again. He should come back to haunt whoever is in charge because they are ruining not only this channel, but they are setting the pattern for other shows to be CRAP! And whatever happened to the real Disney classical movies? Well, Princess and the Frog was one step forward. But the kids only know Disney Channel! What the buck!
Then the shows that I remember were WAY better. Disney used to have The Jersey, The Famous Jett Jackson (which Hannah Montana ripped off), and my all-time favorite, So Weird, which we can blame it’s decline on “soccer moms”. I HATE soccer moms. Moms…mind your own business! No one cared what you watched when you popped in bugs bunny and scooby doo! I remember them showing shows like Growing Pains, Brotherly Love, Smart Guy, Boy Meets World, In a Heartbeat, Bug Juice, and Disney even showed old classical shows like Zorro, The Ink and Paint Club which was Mickey mouse all night, and a Wonderful World, they even showed the original Mickey Mouse Club!….and the Disney Channel Movies? AW MAN! They were the highlight of my day! They had unique plots. There just weren’t girl movies, but movies for the fellows too like Brink, Johnny Tsunami, Genius, Punkz, 13th Year, Can of Worms, Horse Sense, Jumping Ship, Smart House, etc. Then the girly movies like Wish Upon a Star, Stepsister from Planet Weird, Zenon, Halloween Town, Susie Q, Model Behavior, Rev It Up, ! Aw man, the horror movies actually were it’s best. Like Hocus Pocus, Scream Team, Phantom of the Megaplex, Mom’s Got a date With a Vampire, Under Wraps, Don’t Look Under the Bed, Tower of Terror, etc! Just so many good shows! To me, I think the decline started with Lizzie Maguire because that’s when all the “teeny boppers” showed up and changed Disney, but there was still some varietal shows like Even Stevens, Phil of the Future, Naturally Sadie, The Proud Family, Kim Possible.Some movies were also good like Read It and Weep, Tru Confessions, Eddie’s Million Dollar Cook-off, Cheetah Girls (the first not the others), and I had no problem with the original High School musical until it got too ridiculous, like how do you have High School Musical over summer break? There is no school! stupid.
Now the only three shows that I liked on Disney was That’s So Raven, Phineas and Ferb, and Life with Derek. It gave Disney some variety instead of the SAME THING. But these kids are idiots. “It’s not funny..duh…” And Life with Derek was cancelled, the only REAL show during the Renaissance period of Disney CHANNEL. Why does every show have to be funny? See, that’s why everything is so repetitive. Because this generation lacks creativity of the mind! They like repetitive crap in their mouth to come out and puke on all the good old shows.
All of their shows are the same. Someone is trying to get famous and trying to hide their identity. Look at Hannah Montana. Just like Jett back in the day, she is a “famous pop singer” and all she does is whine and complain about how it’s hard to be a normal girl and a singer. And she has to hide her identity, when it’s clearly obvious she’s the same singer because they have the same face…Wizards of Whatever also are Wizards trying to hide their magic, same thing as Hannah Montana, trying to “hide something”. And then Sonny With a Chance, trying to be famous (another iCarly really), and Suit Life on Deck is just a retarded idea period. The original was okay, but when Maddy left, I said forget it. And then…it became INFESTED with comedies! The lack of variety is so obvious, it doesn’t matter which show I’m watching, they all look the same.
It’s like they are encouraging kids to grow up to be shallow, whiny teenagers, who instead of working for what they want, complain like they haven’t grown an inch. They are teaching our kids that they can get famous for not trying at all. Money, but no effort. How sick is that? I say that because I’m still perplexed how most of them became actors and actresses. Some of them need to get fired from the studio. And since when was it a good idea to make actors and actresses into singers? I know you want clean music for kids, Anne, but getting even worse singers and performers is traumatizing them just as badly! And now these kids don’t know the difference between good music and bad. They think good means “anybody who is on TV”. That’s not what makes a singer good. Because these television shows are not about finding talent, but finding someone stupid enough to act stupid on television. And now they’re only showing FOUR Disney Channel original movies! Bull crap! simply put. Bull Crap Disney. Fire this woman!
Last but not least I have to attack this network, though I don’t believe this is any of their fault. I blame the viwership: the mentally damaged children. This network is known as Nickelodeon. Nickelodeon was not only a good network for kids, but for everyone. It was one of the most awesome networks on television. This show had more variety than any kid’s network on the air. They not only had Nick Jr in the morning, which I watched even when I was 10, they had good shows for kids, like Blues Clues, Little Bill, Little Bear, Franklin, and Face, who introduced me to peanut butter and banana btw. They had Gullah Gullah Island, which even kids watched. Then by the afternoon, even greater shows came on like Rugrats, the most popular of course, Hey Arnold, Angry Beavers, Ren and Stimpy, Ka-blam, All That, Kenan and Kel, The Amanda Show, Invader’s Zim, My Brother and Me, Clarissa Explains It All (before Lizzie Maguire), The Wild Thornberrys, even Ned’s De-Classified was pretty okay later on, and Spongebob, who was more like a surfer dude, than he was a gay clown like he is today. And not all gay people act like clowns, but does. I’d say the decline happened with Unfabulous. And that’s when I realized Nick was trying to imitate Disney and their “teeny-bopper” ways. I couldn’t believe it. Nick at Nite is still good because I like Malcolm in the Middle and Everybody Hates Chris. In fact, THOSE should’ve been on NICK!!!! What the FOOL!
But Nick can’t help it. I mean that’s what the stupid kids want to watch. The only recently good show they had on Nick was Avatar: The Last Airbender. That was pretty good. I watched the whole show, and was upset when it ended.
So yeah, I think television might be some sick way for kids to go outside and play. They got together and said , “Hey let’s make it suck so kids can be more active.” But it didn’t work. Instead, the retarded kids thought it was good…
So some people may ask, why am I ranting on this? Am I a “soccer mom”? I’m older now, I don’t have to worry about cartoons, right? Wrong. I DO care what the kids of today watch. I’m not a “soccer mom”, who just condemns every little thing with too much violence and killing and a little horror or suspense, but at least if you’re going to have it, do it right. These companies know they can take advantage of kids because kids are dumb enough to fall into their scandals. Kids don’t know any better. These corporations believe they can throw out crap and cash in on the kids who don’t think anything about it…rather don’t think at all!
I feel there is nothing wrong with me wanting the kids of today to have quality television, instead of a large quantity of bull crap! If you’re going to buy Demand Cable, you might as well make sure it’s worth it!
Also, my generation of viewers never grew up from cartoons. We loved our networks. We knew it was quality. So we are still among the viewers of these networks. Why do you think they’re trying to raise the bars on Cartoon Network with Adult Swim and stuff? Because we loved this stuff, and because we also watch it, we see what they’re doing to the kids. We see they are making the kids look like idiots, and it’s not right.
You may say, who am I to say it’s crap? Every generation hates the last, right? And that much is true. BUT, there are some things in the generation that I like, like Disney Channel has Pass the Plate. That’s good they are encouraging international union. BUT…any logical person knows that if something is called MTV, music television, you play music….and anyone knows that if you are CARTOON NETWORK, you play ONLY cartoons on the network. Why lead people astray with the title, and then they flip and see a live action show? I would be like “Is my television broken? Am I on the wrong channel?” If you’re going to do that, change the title of the network!
There’s only so much I can say. There is more, but I’m tired. Hey, me and a couple of 90s kids are getting together to create our own network of good shows, so if anyone wants to join in, let me know in the comments.
