It's Not Me, It's You

There are quite a few creative people in the world, and this creativity takes all different forms. Some people create music, others are stand up comedians, handsome Michigan residents blog, and the best of the creative types participate in America's Best Dance Crew. I think all creative people are inextricably linked through the personal belief that their efforts are broadly undervalued. No matter what, not enough people are enjoying your craft and they absolutely should appreciate all that you bring to the table. Everything you say and do is a jewel and it only gets better with age.

Take solace, creative types. It's not that you're not as good as you think you are, but rather that millions and millions of Americans are apparently total idiots. I'm talking to you, morons. No empirical evidence has ever proven this hypothesis better than the fact that this weekend, the movie Paul Blart: Mall Cop made freaking $33.8M and was #1 at the box office. This also means that about 3,380,000 people are incapable of reading because this movie is rated at a truly craptacular 26% on Rotten Tomatoes. Looking for more evidence? How about that According to Jim has been on TV for one million seasons. We're better than this, America.

If you find offense with this thought because you saw and (more importantly) enjoyed this movie over the weekend, this might be the extremely rare instance in which I kindly request you stop reading my blog. I fear almost nothing more than the statement - "You know what's funny? Paul Blart: Mall Cop and"
