My Son is Gay.... or Not
Not really because he's crossdressing, at least, not any more than usual. Because of this crap.
I honestly thought it was going to be years before I had to listen to crappy, upbeat pop music. And really, I thought it was going to come from Kendyl.
Turns out, I didn't have to wait for her tween years to have this crap inflicted upon my pop-music despising self....
Have you ever met
Oh, my God. Kill me now.
And he's obsessed. We don't even watch Blue's Clues anymore... 40 episodes on the DVR, I was about to buy the DVD collection, and he's on to the next thing.
Honestly, I thought the next thing would be Dora or something. At least there's an alternative, he's also all of a sudden into Dino Dan... the problem with that is that Kendyl hates Dino Dan, so during her waking hours it's Fresh Beat all the way.
They, The Fresh Beat Band, like all bubblegum pop music, have a catchy tune and easy lyrics. I find myself singing the songs to myself in the kitchen while making our dinner, long after the kids have gone to bed and my ears are no longer being assaulted.
Now, isn't there supposed to be a logical progression from Sesame Street to something else cutesy and educational and then finally to brain numbing garbage?
As far as I can tell, the only educational merits of this show are music appreciation and working together as a team to solve a problem. So, Wonder Pets started a band... ok.
It's really as obnoxious as one might think the Wonder Pets starting up a pop band might be.
He even knows all of their names.
Kiki is Tyler's favorite, because that's what he calls his stuffed monkey. She's a sucker for biting off more than she can chew. Her color is pink and she plays guitar. I've looked at her fingers and I think she's actually playing it. She's still annoying.
So these kids live on a block? In a neighborhood? All I know is that their world is garishly colored and they subsist on mainly smoothies that are the same disgusting pastel color as their world. Come to think of it... I think thats what the Puke News Kid on Tosh.0 ate for breakfast that morning.
Maybe he puked because he was watching The Fresh Beat Band. Or more believable, maybe the smoothies are laced with crack and he had a bad drug reaction. That could be a good reason why the Fresh Beats are so chipper all the time.
I'm warning every one not to get into this. It will make your brain bleed. Maybe put it on your V-chip as porn. It's about as educational. I mean, porn teaches music appreciation and working together as a team, right?
