New and IMPROVED! Really?
Lots of things annoy us; traffic, accidental stains on our clothes when we just got them days before, going over our credit card limit, when your significant other has eaten the last whatever when you had been looking forward to eating it ourselves – those sorts of things. For me though, seeing a header that says new Hunger Games image, and then clicking a link and seeing the same damn pictures I’ve seen for months or weeks, that more that annoys me.
Seriously, since when did editing a photo and adding more mega pixels to it make it a new photo, it’s just more cumbersome to have on your hard drive when you’re down to say, 3 GB’s. New means you’ve never seen it before, right? Not something you’ve seen before but has a crisper quality to it! I’m a really hard sell if you can’t tell, and frankly having headers (headlines) thrust at me at 9 am boasting new, new, NEW, and then getting NOTHING new, makes me see evil fairies with sharp teeth gnawing at my finger tips. What’s worse is I see people that I know and like gushing over said new pictures, and I’m just sitting about scratching my head wondering if there’s something wrong with my brain function.
Frankly this all comes down to the lack of new material being released, BUT we’ve got four months until the film is released, and not all of us, like me, will be satisfied with seeing Cinna, Peeta and Haymitch having a chat on that Capitol sofa in clearer image quality. Here’s an idea, how about we see some of the other Tributes, or a still of Flickerman in all his blue sparkly glory, or Effie pursing her lips presumably annoyed at something Katniss has said or done.
Here’s to hoping new starts to mean new sooner rather than later!
