Showtime: Six Kinds of Crap

leave a comment »

It’s got something to do with casting. If you don’t know what I mean, it’s explained here. Everything you need to know about Germany’s Next Top Model, Heidi Klum‘s search for the most beautiful girl, on one of Germany’s ugliest television channels.

One of Klum’s pearls of wisdom when coaching the babes:

“You have implemented this look very well in your challenge.”

Roger Willemsen doesn’t like it either. He’d like to beat six kinds of crap out of Heidi Klum. After all, he is Germany’s top intellectual and doesn’t like those excesses of voidness.

He didn’t leak his hitherto secret desires unasked. Germany’s liberal-green TAZ had insisted to hear what he thought of Klum’s show. And Willemsen was happy to oblige.

Which is OK. Germany’s Next Superstar attracts quite an audience, so it is somehow relevant, and something to talk about. Both Klum and Willemsen need to eke out a living, which requires  some public attention. But if Willemsen had wanted to make himself really useful, he could have expressed a desire to beat six kinds of crap out of the BILD Zeitung editorial staff, or out of their peers at Hurriyet, or out of a certain German bishop.

That would have been news. And thought-provoking. After all, Willemsen is Germany’s top intellectual.
