I've probably mentioned this before, but i figured id go into more detail about something i cant stand. Disney in general, produces terrible, tv, music and movies. They have no original ideas, everything is a sequel, based on a movie, or shows about teens that live in harmony with plots that are random, boring and stupid. That also brings me to another point. All of the stuff they show, has characters 5 years older then their target audience. These 11 year old teenyboppers probably believe that's how high school really is, and its defiantly NOT! I honestly think Disney is a front to revive boy bands, and Britney spears-type pop music so they can milk it for all its worth. Really, i have cousins who are into this stuff and it sickens me. They've gotten so much money they don't even run commercials for anything, only advertising their own shows and products, therefore making more money out of a cycle. Also, they use the same actors and actresses for everything, every single show. Going back to a point, many shows are about high school but all it is, is characters that are the most stereotypical suburban kids ever, u got preps and bullies and maybe the occasional nerd but that's it. They always take on some bully or some relationship issue and then everythings back to normal and perfect with a happy ending, in every single plot. It does not represent a real high school at all. I find it sad in a few years, the kids that have grown up with this stuff, most of the first wave coming from the kids that are now going into 6th grade, will be in High school, maybe even middle school will shock them, seriously. Lets look at some stuff i found on the Internet, and no, i did not come up with these and that fact fills me with deep,deep shame.

12 year old: OMG!!!! I can't wait for high school now that I've just watched High School Musical!!!! There won't be any labels, all the cliques and crowds will live in harmony, I can share my secrets and no one will humiliate me, it will be just like a happy fairy tale.

(Not real, made up by someone on the internet, but illistrates my point perfectly)

That is what im talking about right there. o wait, there was only one, o well, the point is that the people that write this stuff must not remember high school at all.

Not to mention, the people in these "movies" and "shows" or what ever excuse for them is, are terrible role models, im sure you have all heard of the latest screw ups of miley cyrus and Vanessa Hudgens and if you don't know what I'm referring to then get out from under your rock and Google it. I really have the suspicion that Disney at least partially creates or encourages these "scandals" , wait a minute, i cant belive i wrote that word since it sounds so stupid, doesn't it? i feel like I'm writing for the national enquirer or something. but anyway Disney creates or promotes these and uses the carefully crafted attention for more publicity. how do i know this? They never fire anyone or publicly denounce them, some networks would, not Disney,no, they thrive on the behavior of the new Paris Hilton's, all part of the 90s pop revival, tied into Hannah Montana and similar shows. I'm not blaming this entirely on the people,I'm mean, look at babe Ruth, kids looked up to him, but he was both an alcoholic and an adulterer but it wasn't sensationalized like it is today, i mostly blame disney and to a much lesser extent, the media in general.

well, im out of ideas, probly because i dont write my rants at one time, i ussually spend hours writing in little chunks, leaving and then coming back, but in summary:

Disney is a front for the 90s pop revival

All shows are tie ins, high school musical 4? there was even a show based on the little mermaid and lilo and stich.

Bad actors

the same actors

terrible music

an evil corperation trying to take over the world

dont watch disney


im done here, and as always please post comments cause i like that people read my rants and i also like opening my email inbox, i did this rant because i...nevermind i actually spent 5 minutes thinking what to say but i got nothing,later

Dear Renegade Rambler:

I'm a newcomer to your blog. First, I enjoyed reading your Disney post! Second, let me say I share your frustration with SuperBrands, like Disney, that seem to be crowding us out of valuable breathing, thinking and living space. I also find their peddling to children to be particularly abhorrent! Children don't even have fully developed minds to determine if they do or don't want a product yet!! But, that doesn't matter to Disney. "Keep watching Disney T.V. (with fake commercials that keep a pre-adolescent mind wanting the next shallow, stereotypical, easily accessible variation of the same crap-o-la) and your life will be a happy Disney life, too!"
While I feel for your cousins, keep in mind that there are other, fully developed, people responsible for what those kids watch! And, a lot of times even those people don't really get it. Oh well, somebody will get it sooner or later.

Keep ramblin'...

Ps- Take a look at "NO LOGO" by Naomi Klein. Good reading!
