HBO used to have this awesome show called Life stories. They were filled with hours of entertainment. One of Ben Afflecks first appearances was on this show where he becomes this enrgaed steroid maniac. Watching Affleck say "you think I need steroids to kick your ass" and then watching him beat this dude down was awesome. Then he went crazy and I don't remember if he beat up his girlfriend but I sure wish he had. Then there was that show about that drunk guy, he was actually really cool and those rotten homo friends of his did an intervention on him, just because he got one of them busted, another shot, and was always drunk around his nasty girlfriend. Then there was Eddie Matos, some drug dealer who got paralyzed, it was your sterotypical "look at me, Im from the ghetto, I was a big man with money, now I'm in a wheel chair, don't follow my life" stuff and was sure entertaining. These shows were great, except that one about that homo that killed himself, the world's a better place without him. I really wish they kept making life stories because they provided hours of entertainment.
Which leads me to wonder why does anyone make educational life lesson shows or movies, theyre always over acted, ridiculous and are more comical than anything. There is probably some writer out there that sat down with Eddie Matos and said lets make a show about your life so that we can save other kids lives. Of course the writer is probably an Obama man too, so that sums up a lot abuot him or her. This team effort to somehow save the children, probably has the opposite effect. When I watch the Eddie Matos story, I said wow you can make a lot of money selling drugs, or the Affleck steroid one, I said wow if you use steroids you can kick a lot of ass, or the drunken one I said don't hang out with lameasses (which Brandon came to the same conclusion). The reality is all the negative stuff that happened to these guys doesn't dawn on anyone especially the target audience of teenage boys. What teenage boy doesn't think just like all those idiots in the show that nothing bad is going to happen to them. Probably more kids did steroids as opposed to avoiding after having watched that show, so in reality HBO has contributed to the corruption of young people with these Life stories. But that being said, I just want them back because they were hilarious.
I am writing a letter today, and this is what it will say.
I want life stories back. If you do not return to producing them I will send an enraged steroid induced Ben Affleck to "Kick your ass."
