No Strings Attached

Besides starlet Locsin, another pet peeve of Raft3r is TMZ.

It’s this gossip cable show that chronicles the lives of celebrities as seen through their camera lenses.

It’s the most mind numbing show on the face of the planet. The starlet’s new soap is a close second.

There is nothing more disturbing than having cameras follow you wherever you go.

Not only does it violate a person’s right to privacy, it also shows a lack of respect on the part of the paparazzi.

Ironically, the show’s host and executive producer is a lawyer. Seriously.

Aren’t lawyers supposed to safeguard other people’s rights?

For the record, it is not cool to shove a camera in front of someone who is out doing the grocery.

Wendy said...

Yeah, major crap yang TMZ. Wala talagang kwenta.

Jerick (the former Curbside Puppet) said...

like the show's commercial featuring juliette lewis: "boo little paparazzi, boo!"

Raft3r said...

jerick, Hehe. Talaga? Bobo na nga ako. Lalo pa akong nabobobo dahil sa ganyang mga shows!

The Scud said...

akala ko celebrity website lang ang tmz until i went on vacation and watched a few episodes of tmz on tv. paparazzi pala. hehe.

i think they were the first to report that MJ had a cardiac arrest.

gillboard said...

I don't feel the peeveness you have against TMZ and Locsin on this post... hehehe

anyway, nothin' we can do about it as it seems alot of people love it...

Raft3r said...

the scud, Give credit where credit is due. Ika nga. Hehe

gillboard, Yun nga. May market talaga sila. Madaming uzi. Hehe

Beth said...

We watch that show!!!
Oo nga, super snoopy na talaga sila. Ska wala nang respect for other people's feelings, esp when they throw questions. I think ung mga celebrities, pag nalaman nilang from TMZ, sobrang iwas na.

I once saw them feature the house of Manny Pacquiao and sabi, ano daw nasa mind ni MP why he bought that house in that part of US. E actually, wala na dapat silang care dun di ba? Hayy...

Anyway, what's with Only You star got to do here? Napaghahalata ka, the more you hate, the more you love! HAHAHAHA! Peace!

Raft3r said...

beth, Nyahaha. Ganon ba yon? Di sya star. Starlet lang. Hehe

JCP said...

asus. pag ikaw na ang na-feature diyan, i'm sure maging favorite mo na rin ito :)

Raft3r said...

jcp, Pwede at posible. Nyahaha

Andy said...

Uy, nagpunta palang Mindanao si Angel? Parang humanitarian endeavor, something like that.

Raft3r said...

andy, Kelangan nya magpabango. Expired na ang contract nya sa network, eh. Hehe

prinsesamusang said...

what's more weird i think is that people watch these kind of shows.

Raft3r said...

prinsesamusang, Tumpak! Hehe

vhincent said...

Salve said...

Yun lang.

Raft3r said...

vhincent, You are not missing much. Hehe

salve, Feeling's mutual. Hehe

Joops said...

Raft3r said...

joops, Hehe. Thanks!

laieesha said...

Tabloid reporters are the worst. Stupid papparazzi who would do anything with no regard to privacy, common sense, or any consideration just to make a quick buck. They just throw dignity out the window. They are the worst. Yes, I hate TMZ and everything else about it. I always watch Joel McHale making fun of them in his show The Soup. That's what you should watch. Hella funny, but not in an intrusive kind of way...

Raft3r said...

laieesha, Hehe. Pareho kayo ni judayski. Hehe

atticus said...

explain mo nga, bakit ayaw mo kay angel locsin?

uyyyyy....

Raft3r said...

atticus, Ayoko lang. Hehe

Gamb said...

Wonderful post! These are some good tips, but there’s better ones out there. I would definitely research it, Keno is by far the best game ever.

Raft3r said...

gamb, My first spam comment. Thank you. Welcome to The Deadbeat Club!

sonnetshaven said...

naku den, I'm so addicted to it these days. Lumalabas na nanaman ang pagiging chismosa ko, hahaha!

Raft3r said...

sonnetshave, Nyahaha. Miss na kita. TMZ lang pala katapat mo, ha. Hehe

len said...

Most celebrities are used to it, it's still publicity for them.

Sandali lang ako nag-hibernate ang dami mo agad posts. hehehe

Just checked on Sonnet's blog, may bagong post din. hehehe

Raft3r said...

len, Wow! Talaga? Masilip nga!

Anonymous said...

Raft3r said...

babe, Pag galing mo lagot ka sakin. Hehe

Fine Life Folk said...

Are you even aware that Angel Locsin is also a Taurean like you?

Raft3r said...

fine life folk, Naku. Alam ko Taureans are loyal. So baka di sya ka-sign ko. Hehe

wait said...

'naku, di ako nanonood ng ganyang show... 'ewan ko ba, hehe' ganun ata tlga pag apat lng ang channel ng tv... Haha.

Raft3r said...

wait, Naku. You are not missing much. Trust me. Hehe

Beegee said...

i think though that the fact the producer is a lawyer is brilliant. he knows the law so he has his way around things. practically unlimited access and yet he knows exactly how far he can go without getting sued. haha!

Raft3r said...

beegee, That fact that he is a lawyer makes it more disgusting. Hehe
