Radio used to be the gatekeeper, but TV is the new radio.”“Hannah Montana” centers on an unassuming girl-next-door named Miley Stewart who seems to have a normal life in Southern California but has a secret identity as the world-famous pop star Hannah Montana, a sort of “Prince and the Pauper” story for the You Tube generation.
That’s why the 54-date arena tour by Cyrus, star of the Disney Channel hit show “Hannah Montana,” now has parents calculating how much it will cost them not to break their daughters’ hearts. C., has tried -- and failed so far -- to get her 9-year-old daughter into any Cyrus show she can find across several states.“Greensboro, Nashville, Atlanta, Washington, Baltimore -- they were all sold out,” Cox said Friday. Stub Hub officials called Cyrus sales “astounding” and noted that, by volume, her sales topped all others this year. I think, to be honest, we were surprised at the size and the extent of the momentum. Cyrus’ real-life dad, country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, also plays her father on the show a la “Ozzie & Harriet.” On her “Best of Both Worlds” tour, Cyrus will perform two sets, one as herself and the other as her TV alter ego.
When Fluffy the class hamster suddenly turned from tan-with-white spots to buckskin, I knew it wasn't due to "hamster molting." It was because Fluffy's little corpse is mouldering down in the incinerator room where the teachers go to smoke pot while we're in gympardon me, interpretive movementclass. Sort of like Daddy isn't coming back, though that was because he decided to run off with his secretary, for whom, oddly enough, he is able to maintain an erection. The boys in our class aren't allowed to point their fingers at one another and say "bang," but let me tell you, there are some people whose brains I wouldn't mind splattering around the schoolyard with a nine-millimeter Glock. If you want to be in the right group, you have to have the right tokens of status that the International Toy Fair has spit at us for the season.
I ought to be, what with my parents playing me Mozart in the womb and putting me on the waiting list for the prestigious Haute Ecole des Jeux des Enfants pre-preparatory school three years before they tried to conceive me. It's when some girllet's say, for the sake of argument, Anastasia Silversteinis allowed to take one friend to see Hannah Montana and informs her coterie of cronies that they were no longer allowed to talk to me. For those who are still harboring some illusions of the innocence of childhood, let me introduce you to the dog-eat-dog world that the modern grade school has become.And don't tell me it's not important or that I'll forget about this when I'm "all grown up." Without being in the right clique in grade school, good luck getting invited to the good parties in middle school, and then just try getting the part in the high school musical, getting onto the soccer team, and getting into Harvard. I guess with all of the beauty pageants for toddlers I shouldn't be surprised, but that's another story.Those admissions officers have been bred like bloodhounds for six generations to smell "loser." And just try keeping up that 4.0 grade-point average: Studies have shown teachers don't like the unpopular kids, either. I also have a hard time believing "Anastasia Silverstein" is a real name.“It would be as close to her dream coming true as possible.

If kids really want something, it’s really important, you want to give it to them.”The tour kicks off in St. Randy Phillips, the company’s president and chief executive, said Friday that one obvious solution is to add shows. There are some child labor issues involved in some states, but an even bigger problem is Disney’s plan for its young star: A script is in the final stages for a “Hannah Montana” feature film, and spring has been circled as the optimum filming time.“Miley would like to stay on the road forever, but it’s not that simple,” said Gary Marsh, Disney Channel Worldwide’s president of entertainment. Someone really needs to take a better look at their security/access rights procedures.You can't just allow access for everyone who clicks the "Let me in" button, you need to establish need-to-know first. The picture above is of Hannah Montana herself; just for those who don't know.I sure wish I didn't know that, when i think about it.Anyway, even if it isn't written by a 6 year old, it's still hilarious and depressingly true.
