I wonder frustratingly

Standard

Why do most of the celebrities who use social media don’t actually socialize, in the true of the word?

Wonder girl

Time is not the answer, and you’ll see why.

I follow this great singer – I won’t tell her name cause it might ruin her career considering how popular my blog is – and she posted a super-cool picture and not only that I (and the rest of 5,765 people) liked it, but we also expressed in writing our admiration for the splendid voice and looks she has. I also included a little brain teaser for the lady, and expected to demonstrate her analytical thinking in a challenging debate that we were supposed to have.

What happened next? Nothing. No reply, no like back at me, nothing. There I stood, speechless and hurt, in an intense pain caused by numerous checkings of her page and no sign from her.

Call me frustrated, but I think that celebrities have developed a severe narcissistic behaviour through the use of too many social networks. Life was easier when these platforms didn’t exist. We were simple human beings, they were some kind of superior species, say centaurs. But they preferred to mix with the regular beings in this social media whirl. Well, I’ve got news for you celebrities, your hooves are still very noticeable.

Singers especially, could have continued to promote their albums and inform fans of their events and activities through websites, Youtube channels or even Twitter. Instead, they probably hired their cousins to update their tons of profiles, so that thousands of people could laud them to the skies and back. And at the end of the week they would post a teasing status or a picture to thank all those fans who licked the screens. Aren’t celebrities too hungry for groupies? Come on celebrities, use your four legs and walk that walk!

One might say, well, they’re too busy to reply to thousands of fans. No, they aren’t. I’m just saying, if she had the time to upload a picture of her breakfast, couldn’t she take few more seconds to at least like my comment?

Bottom line, celebrities should be more considerate towards their fans cause there is an Unlike button too!  And also, social networks are for socializing.

Peace and love and skittles!

What’s a pear to do when it’s not an apple?

Standard

In the Summer of  2011 the IAF (International Assembly of  Fruits) conducted a survey which revealed a shocking result: 97% of all fruits wished they were apples. The rest of 3% split as follows: 1.5% wanted to become blackberries, 1% wished they were oranges and 0.5% went bananas because they couldn’t decide whether they were fruits or vegetables.

The question is: What can a fruit do to become an apple?

Let’s take for example pears. The reason for choosing pears is because they are almost similar to apples, biologically speaking (see picture below)

See? Twins. A recent picture of Pear (left) twitting about Apple (right).

However, over the years apples evolved differently and became part of the upper class, hence adopting a more posh lifestyle. While pears fell into anonymity. The differences between the two became more and more obvious.

Apple is crispy. Apple is fresh. Apple is healthy. Apple is spheric. Apple is smart. Apple is notorious.

Pear is different. Not good different, but different different. Pear is mellow. Pear is musty. Pear is round-ISH. Pear is dull.

In an attempt to understand what can a pear do to become as an apple, I observed the evolution of 2 pears over the 3 main life stages: childhood, adolescence and maturity. The subjects, Dennis and Jeremiah, claimed their dreams were to be as famous as apple. They are two best friends, they were born on the same branch, went to the same schools, but have opposite personalities and brains – Jeremiah’s IQ is 132, Dennis’s…

After they finished school, the two boys remained friends. Jeremiah was headhunted by a big IT firm on the grounds that he was as smart as an apple (rumours say it’s his almost spheric shape that got him the job). Dennis became Denise and married Jeremiah.

The couple was first time seen together as husband and wife at a very famous apple party.

Soon after they got married, a tragic accident happened and Denise lost Jeremiah. The brainy pear was mistakenly chopped, ending up in an apple pie. “I never thought Jerry’s dream of becoming an apple will come true this way”, Denise confessed. The widow was the only inheritor of Jeremiah.

Later this month, Denise uploaded a picture on her Facebook profile showing her enjoying an exotic holiday.

She updated her status: "I was born pear, married a short and fat pear and will die rich"

In conclusion, if you were born an ordinary fruit, unless you are a very smart apple-like fruit or you marry one, you can’t be as famous as an apple.
