In TV news:
Season 4 of The Jersey Shore will be shot in Italy… I’ll admit, I watch Jersey Shore. I don’t rush home or anything. I don’t feel a void or even notice if I miss an episode. But I definitely watch.
That being said, I hate that most Americans traveling abroad have no sense of tact or cultural respect most of the time, and the world’s citizens continue to see us as ridiculous.
So… I don’t particularly agree with sending 8 of our biggest jokes over seas. Obviously the episodes will be full of “fish-out-of-water fun”… But those Italians aren’t going to just overlook Snooki’s big-ass frog slippers. They’ll be insulted by a lack of consideration for anyone and everyone who has to look at them. Not to mention that these people can’t even function in American society… even when that American society is, indeed, in New Jersey.
OH! and one last thing before I wrap this baby up. I came across this article about new shampoos that work better than shampoos currently selling. It’s definitely worth a read! The T-Sfere Technology shampoos are made by a California company named Kronos, which I would try based on the company name alone! (Latin/Greek Nerd Alert!)
