Motabs and Makeovers


From the newsroom:

Last night, the popular reality television show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition aired an episode that featured a performance by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

The Pauni family of Logan, Utah, lost their father two years ago, leaving their mother to carry the responsibility of providing for nine children. The Paunis were selected by ABC for a home makeover.

The choir was asked to participate since the Paunis are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The choir performed the family’s favorite song, “Love At Home,” which is also a popular Church song.

The concept behind this TV show is an awesome one. However, I don’t watch it because I can’t stand the femmy men and materialistic, airheaded women. In the episodes I’ve watched, I have enjoyed seeing the reaction of the families and the sheer surprise and excitement in their faces as they see what a great blessing they’ve been given.

If only there were more programs out there that had morals, altruistic causes (this is arguable, since ABC is just out to make money by using this type of angle, I imagine), and tear-jerking scenes of family bonding. And no femmy men and materialstic women. That’d rock.

If anybody runs across the clip w/ the Motab in it on Youtube/Google Video, lemme know!

    Seriously, Connor, do you have me microchipped or something?? I *just* went form the newsroom to the abc site and went through the photo gallery for this family’s episode.

    So, on reading the blurb and then the episode description, I was all like ‘ohhh, that’s so nice of them,’ and then I went through the photos, and the new house is gorgeous, but I felt a tug somehwere in my emotions, and then it surfaced.

    It’s all calculated to create envy.

    Maybe it’s the effect of the materialistic women and femmy guys’ taste, I don’t know, but man, their style has worldly draw down pat.

    So, no thanks.

    Naiah, I agree. In the few episodes I have seen, I was flabbergasted at all the bells and whistles they threw into the homes. Kids had bedrooms from the future, with revolving closets, glow in the dark bathroom appliances, big screen TVs in the walls, etc. I think they go overboard.
