3D…as in Ri-D-culous!

Okay. In my opinion…(and I have many!) the whole 3D craze has gotten out of control. I was recently shopping around for a TV (which I’m not sure why I actually bought, I haven’t turned the thing on yet…hmmm…maybe it’s sort of a crime being American and not owning at least one TV? The floor is now open for opinions!)

Anyway, the sales guy tried to sell me the 3D version of a flat screen TV. He claimed that “all the new shows in the future will have 3D capability!!”

He said it with a little too much enthusiasm.

Meanwhile, I was distracted watching Grease 2 playing nearby on the “regular” HDTV. My jaw dropped at how clear the HD version was. It made it possible to see every single pore! Every flaw, line, wrinkle, zit- BOOM! – all out there.

No wonder more and more women in Hollywood are going overboard with inflated lips (which many deny, but hello, Google search says otherwise with your “before” shots from a few months prior, girl!).

Although I personally wouldn’t get my lips done, I can understand why stars are more and more paranoid about their looks – what with HD, 3D, and all the other D’s that are being invented even as I write this!

    I hate 3D…I was born with a rare type of stereo blindness that only affects 2 percent of the world population. It can’t be fixed and it also means I can’t see ANYTHING, not even REAL LIFE, in 3D! Everything is flat like a picture to me. I’ve adapted, but I still hate 3D. Why do we need it anyways? If you haven’t noticed, the whole world is in MASSIVE DEBT. Why spend all that money researching this stupid stuff!?

    NOW there’s 4D I’m not a huge fan of 3D and now you can smell stuff coming out of the screen. Let’s hope the movie isn’t set in a garbage can, or a dumpster 😛

    I know for a fact that 3d TV is coming. There always has to be the next big thing so companies can continue to get rich, Sometimes I want to walk into a Bestbuy and just shout, “Can’t we just be happy with what we have?”
