I can’t be the only one who is fed up of it all, but there are some people who still seem to live for such things. If they didn’t then a whole industry would die off – I wouldn’t miss it at all – and many, many people would be far happier and, I believe, safer too.
Surfing the news reports the other day I was startled and shocked to learn that a certain married couple hadn’t been able to get tickets for a newly released film, despite their name, as ordinary people had bought them all up first. Then, just today, I came across a photograph of Ali Larter collecting laundry and one of Jessica Lowndes riding an escalator (both of which have now been removed).
I’m sure that it is all absolutely fascinating stuff and, in the not too distant future, social historians will be falling over themselves for just this information but, really, can’t they just keep such stuff hidden away in the archives for another twenty-five or fifty years and bring it out as a ‘never seen before’ run of easily ignored photographs if those featured are still famous, or even known?
