Unsolicited Advice

I am not now nor have I ever been either a communist or the target demographic for Lena Dunham’s HBO show, Girls. I have, however, seen a few episodes, and find it well done and pretty well written. I also love Ms. Dunham’s ability to irritate wingnuts. It’s a gift, I tell ya.

Here’s my unsolicited advice. There’s a porn “parody” of Girls and Dunham has gone after it.There’s *always* a porn film that riffs on the title of a successful film or teevee show. I use the term “parody” loosely when it comes to titles such as On Golden Pump. I, for one, would have never heard of the porn “parody” if Dunham had ignored it. There’s no reason to, uh, pimp for something you detest. Bury it with inattention instead of taking to the Tweeter Tube.

That is all.

  1. This actually has a name– It is called the “Streisand Effect.”
    From wiki: “The Streisand effect is the phenomenon whereby an attempt to hide, remove or censor a piece of information has the unintended consequence of publicizing the information more widely, usually facilitated by the Internet.”
