Maybe I’m Too Close to This One

I’ll be honest, I’ve seen this coming since that episode of Mad Men where John Hamm pulls his girlfriend off the set of a soap opera. And yet, that’s where I am. Maybe this was just the wrong woman to be with me when she clearly was having fun while I suffered through a painful year of homelessness and physical torture.

It’s nice to see her trying, and her improvising skills seems a little shaky, but perhaps it’s just her character speaking.

As for the film trailer, I’ll be honest, I’m just not sure if her heart is even in this one.

Perhaps acting class is getting me to ask this, but what is her personal connection to the character other than she is a pop star?

It’s a fake nose, which makes her beautiful? She’s never been a folk artist, and now wants credibility in a genre that she hasn’t even earned her way in to yet?

At least she got to perform, which she’s good at, but even I have to start asking, what’s the point of this film?

Pop stars get famous because they have a pussy and are pretty? Now she’s going to do rock music?

At least Janis will have a point and hero. And a star who actually performs in that genre. Maybe it’s disappoint, or just hurt that she keeps contacting me when I was struggling the most, and helped herself and herself only.

But sometimes stings speak louder than words. As for me,

i think i’ll pass…


About Michael Medlen

My name is Michael and during my free time I avoid having a day job. Strangely enough, this gives me the freedom to run this blog. I write just about anything that can be considered art. I also occasionally post articles that may or may not be relevant to the theme of this site. You’ve been warned.
