Saturday Rabidity: Hollywood Really Sucks

leave a comment »


A friend of mine shared this video with me and I laughed right out loud.  Thing is, this the norm for good web videos these days. While they are basically short, they represent far more creative energy than what comes out of Hollywood these days.

And why is that? In my mind, it has to be the competitive edge that drives the quality bar up. Any more, Hollywood is based on the controls of the Screen Actors Guild and the crazy ad revenue that keeps only a privileged few as the sources of so-called quality entertainment. Meanwhile, those who possess some very creative talent are marginalized.

This article, albeit dated some, illustrates how people seem to be more interested in YouTube than OTA or Cable subscription programming. Forbes also released this article how people are going more and more to Zero TV.  I’ve actually been this way for about three years now.

Why?  Because there is only so much stupid-crap-drama, reality shows, and zombie/vampire schlock that I can watch before I actually want to read a book…about economy or ancient history, or something.
