Ok, look at that image above. I have problems with that image, and I am about to lay them on you.
that image is one of the icons they use to advertise CSI Miami. It’s actually a pretty compelling show, except for the horrible acting work of David Caruso. I say ‘work’ instead of acting, because taking your sunglasses on and off is not acting. Also, why are you always wearing them inside? Another thing that drives me crazy is the CSI Miami is televisions #1 export to the world. The rest of the world is nuts for that show. So, when the world thinks of Americans… they have two people to reference: George Bush and David Caruso. Great. No wonder why the world hates us.
That isn’t what this piece is about, though. It’s about those sunglasses. I really do not like that icon at all. It upsets me, and seems extremely disrespectful. Why because of this image below.
Know what that image is? Those are the glasses John Lennon was wearing when he was killed. Yup, that’s his blood on right. Pretty fucked up, huh? Now, why would Yoko share and celebrate this image? I don’t know, she is nuts. Anyhow, this is an extremely powerful image to me. Those sunglasses up there at the top really remind me of these John Lennon glasses.
Am I over reacting? I guess I am. Still, I had to point that out. Thanks for listening.
