Big Brother 9. Jennifer & Rachel naked. Cock sucked. Sex. Real sex (fake orgasms). On television. With Virgin (ha!) mobile phone ads every 12 minutes.

big-brother

Some people worry about how many more springsummerautumnwinters they'll experience in their lifetime; I worry about how many more Big Brother Summers I will have to endure.

It's good to know that Freud had BB sussed. In a little known essay written in 1915 ('Topography and Dynamics of Human Misery as a Generator of The Entertainment For The Masses') he wrote:

'The nucleus of this form of entertainment consists of instinctual representative which seek to discharge their cathexis; that is to say, it consists of wishful impulses. These instinctual impulses are co-ordinate with one another, and are exempt from mutual contradiction. When two wishful impulses whose aims must appear to us incompatible become simultaneously active, the two impulses to do not diminish each other or cancel each other out, but combine to form an intermediate aim, a compromise.'

Move over Dr Tomas Chamorro Premuzic (know in the trade as Prose Muzak)!

To quote Prosemuzak on the wedding task: "Desire is usually good and can lead us to accomplishments, but obsession is always bad." Thank God you're around to point that out to us Dr Tomas. You can see why he became a psychologist and not a psychoanalyst - he's about as subtle as Big Brother Contestant.

Funky name though.

i don't know if obsession is always bad... d'ya think?

and just say no to the tv. i only see cocks sucked if ... oh well no one wants to hear this ...

Prozacville said...

Well clearly not. Obsession fuels this little venture, and perhaps a lot of what is most interesting in our lives.

I deliberately chose one of Prosemuzak's more banal analyses of the housemate's relationships to underscore his own trudging, pschological banality.

I think you should audition for next season

Prozacville said...

If I can't increase the eyeballs on Prozacville (currently about 200 a day), I might just have to.

We all have an insatiable need to be seen/heard (the cry of the infant, never stilled) - some of us though, and I think bloggers are up there with Reality TV Contestants AKA 'Freaks'- have it really quite bad.

Prozacville said...

orangefrute88 says "I'm just a helpless girly"
Mr P says "Let me help you out young lady. Give me your Email for a more private chat"

Even a dog like me knows a little phychology.

I like this one.
I like puppets.

Prozacville said...

Mmm.

That is one way of looking at it.

Another way of looking at it is human being P. trying to help human being O. get more out of their blogging experience.

Take your pick, Baggel.

I'm still pondering the comment a newscaster made about someone...."well, THERE is someone who needs attention...." she was probably just jealous that this person was attention whoring for free.

Prozacville said...

"Attention whoring for free". That should be the definitive definition for blogging, if the OED were ever to look for one.

baggelboy is just jealous, prozac, he wants you all to himself
