Have you ever seen this video of Robbie the Problem Cat? It’s cute and funny, but be warned: that song, “Pay Attention to Me”, will be stuck in your head for-evah.
Any time I see a case now of somebody desperate for attention, that song starts playing in my head. It’s never a good thing for the person seeking the attention. Yes, they succeed in getting it, I suppose, but it’s not the kind of attention I would think they would want from me. I don’t find them interesting. I find it kind of pathetic, if I’m honest.
Latest example: Stephen Dorff, who used to be cool. I wouldn’t have known that he was no longer cool if he hadn’t told me, and the world. If the guy wasn’t feeling like a has-been and wasn’t feeling insecure about it—and one cannot be cool and be those things, I’m afraid—he would never have badmouthed Scarlett Johansson and BLACK WIDOW, which he did recently. “Pay attention to me! Dah-dah-dah-dah! Pay attention to me!” It’s not a good look for you, Steven. You’ve managed to erase the geek cred you garnered for playing Deacon Frost in the first BLADE movie. Dorff seems afraid to badmouth the new Blade, though. He had nothing but good things to say about Mahershala Ali. “Mahershala will be incredible doing that…Mahershala is a hell of an actor, and…he’ll be great in the role”. Yes he will, Steve-O. And the movie will likely be great as well. And you won’t be in any way associated with it, which is kind of your problem, isn’t it?
