The whole Miley Cyrus thing...

I can't keep quiet any more... Apparently Disney is sequestering Miley Cyrus for a few months after this Vanity Fair thing. I'm pretty confused because those pictures aren't bad. A bare back! Holy Shit!

To steal from Brenda here, these parents shouldn't be using a 15 year old as a moral compass. All of this idol worship is totally ridiculous. These parents need to raise their children, not rely on Disney to do it for them.

I recognize that all the pop stars they love are bat shit crazy: Britney, Jaime Lyn Spears getting pregnant, and these 10 year old girls that idolize them are sad because they worshipped these girls and they're total fuck ups. Yeah, they're fuck ups because they the standards they are surrounded by are too high.

Here's an idea, fill a child's life with meaning and maybe they won't reach out so desperately for fill in role models, LIKE FAKE ROCK STARS.

Tighten up parents and don't rely on corporate studios to raise your children for you.
Stop being so fucking lazy.

I'm confused. I purchased a vintage, second-hand moral compass the other day on ebay. It's great, works fine,it's about 15 years old I think. Am I supposed to get rid of it now?

You know what's really creepy? The pictures of her with her dad. It looks like they're going to go carve their initials in a tree and make out. Gross. But let's be honest: she already looks older than Ellen Page -- is it any surprise this is where her career is headed? And there's no such thing as bas publicity. I had no idea who/what "Hannah Montana" was until all this ballyhoo.

I think the MC incident is a great indicator of the changing world. As members of one of the first truly electronic generations, we should know that human society has fundamentally changed in the last 20 years. Information is completely accessable to all levels of society at amazing speeds, thus, affecting the rearing of our children. Kids now are raised more by their surroundings then ever before because those surroundings are literlly limitless. Parenting, as our parents know it, no longer exists. Parental influence can't compete with 24/7 access to the entire world at anytime, therefore, content must be controlled according to societal norms. Controlling access is the only outlet a parent has, but that is simply impossible to do withour putting your child at a disadvantage. Control will only get more difficult as access and speed increase and the user base becomes universal. In 50 years, every kid is going to be raised by the internet/corporations/state.

Oh, and the computers are going to take over the world...

Holla.

Pete, why has nobody seen fit to give you a late-nite radio show?
