the proof that love's not only blind but deaf
those who really know me well know that i don't really have a nasty bone in my body. but sometimes i just can't help myself. the other night, out of morbid curiosity, i watched a little of "a shot at love with tila tequila" on mtv. the stupidity level of some of the people on this show is just staggering, even by the standards set by reality shows on mtv. anyway, watching the show made me think of a line in the song "fake tales of san francisco", by arctic monkeys. don't get me wrong--tila is definitely not an unattractive girl. it's just that i don't think she's nearly as attractive as she thinks she is. but what really gets me is the way this girl speaks, a strange mishmash of hip hop slang flavored with a valley-girl drawl. "a shot at love", really? all that's left is the proof that love's not only blind but deaf...
