Headlines America becoming to obsessed on looks?

So, I was thumbing through my lastest issue of MAD magazine, and I came across a parody of the Lemony Snicket movie (Which I never saw). Something didn't seem right in those screencaps, but it took me about ten seconds to figure out what it was...

Lo and behold, movie makeup to the nth degree! I thought movie stars were always looking young because of makeup (Which is true!), but in this case, it made them look artificial, kind of like a CG rendering. Why did it appear like this?

Movie makeup on preteen stars, including babies. Hey, retards, thanks for catering to the pedophiles for us! How young do you have to make people look? They're under 20, they don't even have anything RESEMBLING stress marks or wrinkles yet! Is America really that obsessed with looks that even child stars have to be rid of "anomolies" which don't even exist?

Take a look on the telly. Tune in to Extra, ET, whatever. Look around. Notice the pattern? SUPERSTARS ARE ONLY BEING JUDGED BY LOOKS. Even kids can't evade this; it has become an unwritten rule in the industry:

You "ugly?" You fail!

I am probobly one out of three males in my school who would date a chick REGARDLESS of her looks, even if she was fat as hell, and we still shared things in common, call it a date!

People need to start paying more attention to the inner beauty of humans, as opposed to the exterior beauty. I'm pretty sure those child stars are assholes, and that goes for EVERYONE ELSE who is on any of those "spam" Hollywood news shows. I think it's time we went back to the 1920's, in the days of silent movies, when we had ugly people (Like Charlie Chaplin), who achieved headlines because of SKILL and PERSONALITY, NOT LOOKS. My father has an actual autographed picture from him...how many people do you know today would do that for you?

This is one of the reasons I fear about video games becoming integrated with mainstream culture someday. Sooner or later, you'll be hearing about "John Romero's new hairstyle," or "Gabe Newell's amazing new weight loss diet," more than "Romero, now 63, makes millions off of a new port of Daikatana released for the millions of Linux users; game publications say 'Sorry for fucking you over back in 2000, we were biased!'" or "Gabe Newell re-releases Half-Life 2 for Linux; makes millions in a matter of days."

Better yet would be "Carmack and Romero participate in Quaigen Research's 'Super-Entertainer' project. The DNA from both these people have been spliced, to create a super-sexy (I ain't gay, just quoting stuff from his picture page that his female fans post), super autistic, super talented artist/game designer/OpenGL 15.0 programmer."

Of course, by then would would be reading about "Babay Romerack: Ain't he cute?"

I think that those "spam" news shows should at least report something more skin deep than looks alone; how about we start seeing headlines like "Ben Stiller is an Asshole," or "Fuck Anna Nicole Smith: Ugly, mean, nasty whore! Poll: Should Anna Nicole Smith Get the Chair for being a menace to society?"

Hollywood, wake up, because if everything keeps being based on looks as opposed to talent, your days are numbered.

[sarcasm]God forbid that natural evoultion be allowed in modern soceity[/sarcasm]... [serious]if you're ugly you deserve to die[/serious]. Unless of course you are bigger, then just kick the shit out of the pretty people. Or if your smarter than both the pretty ones and the big ones, just survive on your own.

If by evolution of X-Treme Hollywood makeup, then yes, DESTROY THE EVOLUTION OF THAT!

Those kids look scary...You ever seen a "CG Rendered" movie made by a 12-year old who just "pirated" Maya PLE...I'm talking like that. No detail whatsoever, like a silhouette. If they are trying to make somebody "pretty" (Ironically a twelve year old or so), YOU FAILED! Sorry, I like chicks my own age, AND ones that actually look like a human, not some lolikon obsessed pedophile rendering.

OH NOZ1111oNE! They shut down the /l/lolikon board on 4Chan! With 5Chan gone, how am I to get my animated child porn?!

*GASP!* I know! *Downloads Maya PLE*

Ahhh...the good life...Shit! Did I just enable sticky keys? Oh wait, that's on a hardware level...

I dunno what all that random gibberish is, but as for the point I think you were trying to make, Have you ever heard of cinematography?

Edit* I also realize that you think I agree with you... I don't... Lemme do some more editing.

T.V. tainting minds
Nope...never said that. I was talking about T.V. personalities spewing garbage into the airwaves that actually do have a weak effect on the sub-conscious level, Hence why in America most white people are obsessed with white women only, and only pretty ones. In other cultures, big women are considered sexy. However, some attractions seem to be genetic, such as the will to interbreed with other races (There do seem to be some genes for this, but they have not been found yet. I saw it on TechTV's Body Hits). I'm partial to petite Asian women myself with sweet personalities, but that's just me.

Also, there are SOME people who are affected...mainly the retarded people (And by retarded I mean local radio station Z Morning Zoo talk show retarded.)

The bottom line is that this IS pressed into our heads from birth, but it is at a sub-conscious level, and it can be easily overwritten with a bad experience.

I am a strong believer that "Media Effects" are bullshit...but over 30 or so years, if you see the same image over and over again, with the subliminal message FUCK THIS!11one!!!~shift+one!, then yes, eventually your mind will be programmed to do that. It's part of the human nature of conformity.

However, I can not figure out psychologically why I am attracted to Asian chicks after all these years. I lived in Ohio and Indiana during my youth, and there was only one Asian kid in my whole school, and he was a boy (A gay one, at that)...

I think you played the "I would date a fat chick" card a little early. I would have held on to that a little while longer... See, while everyone is reading your rant (which has some valid points - don't get me wrong), all they are actually thinking about after that point is picturing you with a walking marshmallow.

HAHA! Funny. You see, looks are at the bottom of my list, but what's the point of dating a hot Asian chick if you have nothing in common?

P.S.: Practically all the girls in my school are overweight Italian/Jewish emo chicks, so there really isn't much point in even looking for a date yet :D .

1. how do you know you have nothing in common, you might! did you try?
2. the very fact you are attracted to hot girls and the image of what hot is to you was bought and paid for by all that advertising you're complaining about.
3. who wants to look at normal, regular, or even ugly people all day? its meant to be a distraction from your everyday...fantasy.
4. i agree small children and young teens are way too made up
5. forgive me, i failed to read every word, but the bottom line is................

someone's gotta be objectified!! and beauty sells.
..& thank god its girls :) cause men are icky lol j/k

So beauty is flawless and skinny? Is ugly everything else? And why is fat considered a part of ugly? Oprah has beauty when she's skinny and fat. Why do men say "I'd date a fat chick, looks are at the bottom of my list." Why not say "I'd date a chick with a big nose...or bad skin...or thin hair?"
