Stars on Mars


Clearly, there is something wrong with me between the ears.


You can make a strong argument that all reality shows are stupid and fake — some more than others.

For some inexplicable reason, I am drawn to the dumbest of the dumb, the fakest of the fake reality shows. For example, I recently watched the reboot of The Surreal Life and enjoyed it. Now I am hooked on an even sillier reality show, Stars on Mars.

Stars was filmed in the Australian desert, where 12 celebrities are stranded in a fake habitat on landscape meant to resemble Mars. The “stars” are Marshawn Lynch, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Lance Armstrong, Natasha Leggero, Adam Rippon, Tallulah Willis, Tinashe, Richard Sherman, Ronda Rousey, Tom Schwartz, Ariel Winter, and Porsha Williams. Yeah, I don’t know half of them, either.

Everything is obviously staged. I’ve seen the first three episodes and plan to watch the rest.

I think I enjoy this type of nonsense largely because of the casting. It’s basically the odd couple — times six. William Shatner hosts and mocks a dozen bottom-feeding celebs who compete in pretend challenges on pretend Mars. Some of these people seem to take things very seriously. As if their careers depend on it — which might be the case.

It is all very entertaining.

I am clearly not right in the head.






Sure does look to me like Trump’s guilty … of being a blowhard.

Sure does look to me like Biden’s guilty … of treason.

Of the two offenses, which do you think should be punishable by prison time?





This must be what the critics mean when they say, “America is no longer a serious country.”





Not sure if this is really a “tragedy” or something unfortunate that happened. Aside from the 19-year-old with a foolish father, it’s hard to imagine a less-sympathetic bunch of victims.




So now we are expected to choose, I guess, between three egomaniacal jerks — Putin, Zelenskyy, and the latest contender, a scary-looking dude named Prigozhin.

You go first.





Sure, why not? It’s not like we have any other uses for $6 billion.




I can’t prove it because I don’t have any clout, but I suspect that — Elon Musk or no Elon Musk — I am being “shadow banned” on Twitter.

My Twitter engagements — likes, retweets, links to this site — although never all that impressive, are way down from what they used to be.

My politics haven’t changed. I suspect some closet liberal at Twitter doesn’t like me.
