This HAS to be the defining moment for the Information-age culture: You Tube music awards.
Consider the gravitas. No, don't, you will get a headache. There is NO gravitas to a post-any-video system which, at one time, manages to avoid ALL intellectual property rights, has zero content quality filter, no technical standards, and only a basic search engine for navigation among the millions of assorted offerings. To be sure, if you're lucky, you might find a professional-quality music offering there, but if you do, it's the proverbial diamond in a goat's ass.
But wait: I saved the best for last. Guess who will be Mistress of Ceremonies at this shindig?
Lady Gaga, it says here.
That tears it.
So, we get an awards show, for "art" in a medium where those with the biggest shit-shovels rule, officiated by the very symbol of sensation-before-art, Lady Gaga.
Could our culture POSSIBLY get more insignificant and/or trite than this?
Sorry about ruining your breakfast. I hope you did a selfie-video of yourself spewing your breakfast. If you did, put it on You Tube. You could be "Performance Artist of the Year" with that...
Comment from Rivrsis:
Well, it could be hosted by Molly Cyrus. Wouldn't you just love to get another glimpse of her lolling tongue? Or her flabby backside? Some more crotch-rubbing? And furthermore, if you don't like Gaga's stage style, or her sexuality, at least the woman has a good voice!
