On Beauty and the Geek last week, Chuck ("Medical Student: Functional Neural Imaging") told the ConfessionCam and Scarlet ("Beer Spokesmodel") that people shouldn't reward Richard ("Has Never Kissed a Girl") by laughing at his bizarre behavior, because that only encourages him. This theory struck me as somewhat strange, because I generally think that adults cannot be easily manipulated in the way that, say, children and capuchin monkeys can.
Celebrities, however, are a different story. The continued existence of Nick & Jessica's marriage is evidence that feedback from us, the viewing public, can influence the hell out of celebrity behavior. So this leads me (in a very roundabout way) to the question: Should I see Batman Begins? It's getting pretty good reviews, plus it's hot out, so sitting in a cool dark theater whilst watching rapidly moving pictures and eating Sour Patch Kids sounds like heaven on earth. But would this be encouraging the train-wreck that is TomKat? On the other hand, my obsession suggests that on some level I enjoy the train wreck . . . so does that mean I should see the movie to feed my obsession, or not? What do you peeps think?
