Newer Not Better

I have the new iPhone, Tablet, or the pre-issued PS4! Yea! No, I don’t. I’ve an iPhone 3, not even 3G and I don’t need to show it off to people, only need it in emergencies.

In my mind Michelangelo’s Pieta beats Dadaists any day, though I do love the cloth sinking toilet and Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe.

Compare Casablanca to anything by Jerry Bruckheimer. Depth vs. skin deep.

Here’s the rub. NCIS. I like this show because it was smart and fun. I’ve been laid up for a couple of days so have seen a few segments of its evil stepchild, NCIS: Los Angeles. In NCIS they wore suits and talked to suspects and worked a tough case. In LA, they wear t-shirts and hoodies and just shoot people and blow up cars. They have Bruckheimered television. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a diehard fan of Linda Hunt and also enjoy Chris O’Donnell and LL Cool J.

Is dumbing down everything just because we have CGI, special effects and good looking young bucks right?

Give me Tara, even Star Wars Episode IV (don’t tell my husband that’s one of my favorite movies) over all this techno-babble the movie and tv people want us to see now. Give me some Mark Harmon! Dee

ps I hope I’ve coined a new word, “Bruckheimered.” I’m sure he doesn’t care if his name is in the press good or bad as long as he gets press and makes money.
