The Dick Clark Obsession

Well, Dick Clark died the other day.  I don’t think anyone was surprised, especially if you watched him painfully try to speak on the New Year’s countdown this past year.

Don’t you think it was bit egotistical of him to attempt to count when he could barely speak?  It was terrible to watch.

It truly was that car wreck on the side of the road that you rubberneck to see the bloody body parts strewn across the road.

Like 99% of you, I didn’t know Dick Clark.  He could have been a wonderful man or a terrible man, I really don’t know.

Clark hosted American Bandstand for years and was most recently know for hosting Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.

Sorry, but he hosted a couple of really shitty music shows.  Have you ever listened to the New Year’s countdown?  Holy shit, it was absolutely hideous.

Do you know who else also died the other day???  A teacher in Wisconsin, a police officer in California, a charity worker in Texas, a close friend of mine lost her battle with lung cancer, etc.  Do you get my point?

Why does America give a fuck about Dick Clark dying?  What did he contribute to our society besides spawning the grotesquely overpaid Ryan Seacrest?

America’s obsession with Hollywood makes me want to vomit in my mouth, swallow it, vomit again, put it on a sandwich and feed it to the masses who make this bullshit possible.

Clark was just another man who died the other day.  He should be treated no differently than anyone else who died that day. 

But, America has a disgusting obsession with wanting to be Dick Clark, wanting to be a Kardashian, wanting to be Ryan Seacrest and wanting to be Brad Pitt.  That’s why Americans give a fuck about Clark dying.

Because so many people wanted his life.  So many people are shallow, weak and devoid of any rational thought processes that they keep watching “reality” television hoping they will one day be picked.  Hoping they will one day be a star.

What happened to priorities?  What happened to people understanding what is really important in life?

Look, I’m not happy that the guy had a stroke and other serious health issues.  Someone dying is always sad, but it is part of this life.  We are all going to die.

How about while living on this planet, everyone wakes up and tries to make the world a better place for those humans that will follow us.

What the fuck am I saying?  Keep watching your televisions, keep fawning over Hollywood and don’t complain when China wins.

RIP Dick Clark and long live the pathetic, daft American.
