Friday LinkFrogging - 4/26/13
I hate reality television.

I think its lowest common denominator programming designed to dull our senses and line the networks' pockets.

Yes, I watched one season of American Idol (yes Ruben, I would like fries with that) and one season of Survivor (I hope Colby is still driving that Aztek).

After that I pretty much chucked the whole genre.

Yes, I'll occassionally stop on Celebrity Rehab simply for the trainwreckedness of it all, but I just don't care enough to watch desperate pleas for parental approval barely disguised as talent shows.

In my opinion they are a huge part of the entitled mindset that permeates our society and, by extension, Lena Dunham.

That's right I just place Simon Cowell for Girls.

That is, of course, until I had kids.

Like so many other decisions nowadays, what I can do with the kids becomes more important than my own personal (and well founded) biases.

The last couple of summers they've really enjoyed America's Got Talent.  I'll admit to enjoying that show because it brings out more than an overblown karaoke contest.  Plus, watching Howard Stern dismantle untalented morons was a lot of fun.

So, a few weeks ago, desperate for something the family could watch together, we stopped on The Voice

Gone were Cee-Lo and Christina.

In were Usher and Shakira.

No typecasting there.

Did I mention I hate Maroon 5 and, by extension, Adam Levine.

But I digress.  The show has turned out to be enjoyable and family friendly and, goddamnit, Levine is pretty spot on most nights.

Anyway, all that leads us to today's cheesecake.  Please say hola to Shakira.

The diminutive Columbian born singer claimed her big red chair a few weeks ago and has held her own against the established judges and Usher's weird Jim Jones like charisma.

I'm going to be honest here, I don't know much about her music.  All I do know is her hips don't lie.



I don't think I can add anything more to that.

Oh, wait, I think the picture at the bottom of the links is actually life size.

Let's hit the links.
