The side effects of Glee...

gleeThere are a few things that I am primarily worried about in my day to day life: the "Glee"-ification of the culture, the liberal indoctrination of our nations youth, and the enslavement of the human race by technology.

 While these are all topics that come up in the news (thus on the site) with a good amount of frequency, it is rare that a story will so perfectly encapsulate all three of my paranoia in one neatly wrapped package.

Check out this video, produced by kids and staff from the Red Bank Middle School, about the goodness of technology on the lives of people...


 

 

Heavy Handed...

Touching, ain’t it...

2048A rock opera about computers enslaving human beings in order to make the world a better place in which the enslavement is the happy ending...

Now, there is little doubt that there is an effort being made here by the teachers involved in the creation of these videos to go viral.

But beyond the whole wretched “look at me” feel of the effort (says the man typing his unsolicited thoughts into a computer with the hopes someone pays attention to them...), I am kind of torn as to whether or not the whole project is right or wrong...

On the one hand, these are a nice troupe of what seem to be cute and talented kids putting on a show that looks nice and really did take an insane amount of effort.

But- and here is where my beef with this stuff lies- it seems to have only been done in order to get people to notice them... to become famous.

Nothing agaist being famous... nor the desire to achieve it...

Just feel that maybe it is an effort better left for non-school hours.

 But wait... there’s more...

pestsAfter checking out the 2048 video, I took a look at the videos along the side of the YouTube page.  That is where i discovered this little gem (which these kids apparently did for a pest control PSA).  I really does give you a feel that you really are looking at some very talented young people... and some celebrity obsessed teachers dying to have a reality show made about them.

 

You really do have to check this out...
