Nonsense

The entertainment media are so full of nonsense it is hardly worth mentioning. And it will get worse before it gets better, what with the elections soon upon us. Brace yourselves!

But one of the more offensive pieces of nonsense is the commercials that have the disclaimer: “Real people. Not actors.” I gather we are to infer from this that actors are not real people. I assume they are robots. No? In any event, when we go to the movies there should be an appropriate disclaimer at the end: “Actors. Not real people.” Now, that would make sense — or as much sense as most of what we see on the silver (and not-so-silver) screen.

  1. In some cases already, and possibly more on the way, the “actors’ we see in movies aren’t actually real people — but computer-generated images of humans who never were actual humans, sometimes interspliced with manipulated footage of actual humans, to create something, well, I guess, not quite real.
