Live From Main Street 01

We’re here to mock the press that famous people get when they hit the main streets. Are you tired of reading about Will and Kate and their children? Probably not otherwise you wouldn’t be here looking for some other way to waste your time reading about famous people and their otherwise normal lives. The lies they tell and the people they spend time with are all a matter of juicy interest and so with no further adieu:

In the gossip News Today

  • An expose on what celebrities keep in their homes – Barbara Streisand is the featured image (only shocking item is Marilyn Manson’s home)
  • Dancing With the Stars” made second billing on E! with an article on their Halloween themed show last night
  • Other notable features included a brief article on the new “Super Girl” television series that aired on Monday night.
  • Looking for your royal fix, it looks like they all went out to see the new James Bond film “Spectre.” She wore something baby/powder blue and the men wore something tux like. You can see I don’t really care who they were wearing or how they wore it. That’s not exactly what I’m trying to emphasize here. They were able to squeeze this film in after promoting some of their charity work and watching an already previewed stop animation film in the style of “Wallace & Grommet” called “Shaun the Sheep” which you can see below.

In Further News

  • At least three hundred people are dead after an earthquake hit Pakistan on Monday. A 7.5 earthquake rocked the border villages in the north east of Afghanistan and the North of Pakistan. Twelve school girls ended up dead as frightened students and teachers fled their school building. The girls were trampled under foot. Very likely none of you will be reading this news today so I thought I’d throw it in there to offset the shocking news of Marilyn Manson mentioned above.
  • Syrian Refuges are beginning to face the elements as they flee the tortures of their war torn countries in need of a refuge.
  • A comedian is becoming the president of Guatemala. Jimmy Morales won more than sixty percent of the popular vote on Sunday as he joked his way into the presidency. Hopefully some precedent is being set for comic presidents everywhere. We would all like a little more humor in our state of the union addresses.
  • This week the Chilean miners who were much in the news five years ago are promoting a film about their rescue. They visited the pope in Rome and this article writes about the pink socks they wore and the people involved in their rescue. Among the notable mementos from the time in the mine are a sign saying this way to the refuge and a hard hat that stated “no one stays under.” These memories bring back the international prayers and attention that these Chilean miners received in their time of great need.

Let’s Focus

  • While a little gossip junk food is good the main street needs to keep clear of too much mental trash or we’re never going to have the time to set our minds to what is important. Let’s keep the live Main Street flowing with the information of the web in a way that allows every important piece of news to pass through and the trash to be deposited at the dump. Otherwise – here’s to hoping no piece of news stays down.
