We Are Now Totally Up Our Own Asses

As someone who wears skinny American Eagle Jeans, bought the Feist album before the iPod commercial, and writes a blog, I guess I'm sort of a hipster. But at the same time, I really do get annoyed with other hipsters sometimes. Case in point, Agent Bedhead's review of The Hannah Montana Movie. Granted, Miley Cyrus really does annoy me at times, but as the older brother of two youngin's who watch The Family Channel (which is like the shittier Canadian version of the Disney Channel), I have to admit: It's not a bad show.


The show's humour relies on dialogue instead of stupid pratfalls, the characters act, for the most part, age appropriate, and the writers tend to take as many shots as humanely possible at Billy Ray Cyrus, which is a sentiment I can totally get behind.

Which is why I secretly got a kick out of how totally apeshit people went over the fact that AB didn't tear it a new one. To which I say, if you want a bad review of Hannah Montana so badly, you can go watch it yourself and write a review. Does Miley Cyrus act like a self-entitles little brat in the real world? Of course she does. But you have to seperate the art from the artist. Hating something because other people like it is no different than liking something based on what other people like. It's like comparing Coke to Pepsi: It's the same thing, but with a different look.

So you know what? Chill the fuck out. The Hannah Montana Movie wasn't terrible. Deal with it.

I've never seen a single episode of Hannah Montana, but I had no problem with the review. It wasn't marketed toward adults. I don't understand all of the vitriol directed at it. It's NOT for us. Frankly, I'm a little confused by it and honestly, I'm kind of confused when anyone bitches about kid's movies getting decent/good reviews.

If you have kids and are trying to figure out if it's appropriate for them, maybe you have a legitimate gripe. Everyone else who's just bitching to bitch? Move on. There are 8 or so things posted each day. Take your whining over to one of those.

So, as someone who has not seen the movie, I feel I'm in the ideal position to pass judgment on it, as well as on all the comments made by people who have seen it... okay. But wait... umm, I guess I have to care about it first, huh? Well, fuck it. I hated it, but I also love it. So you could say, it the movie was very much like my last relationship - including all people who commented on it.

And the word "rad" - is it back? I thought if you are hip, you have to use words like "ass-hat" and "fail" all the fucking time.
