Media City

Post  cyfrifia on Sun May 21, 2017 11:37 am

Manchester is a world centre for media, and as we see, media makes a difference. Coronation Street is a very sucessful production, now using grooming, stabbings, drug dealing, rape and so on as storylines.

What about Rochdale, not far from all that media skillbase. High-definition video production is relatively cheap and easy today, a Rochdale soap opera might 'make a difference'? Or, would it just frighten people away?

There are always plenty of everyday real-life storylines, drugs, stabbings, murders, rapes, politics etc.

But isn't Coronation Street simply Woodbine Street in every other Northern town? Rochdale tends to draw all the publicity to it simply because it was the first to be found out not 'outing' a lot of its dirty going's on and has now become a magnet for every gutter-press snipe looking for a 'pay-out'. Benefit's capital. Paedophile capital. Grooming gang capital. Traffickers capital. All good for a Daily Mirror banner headline and sells like nan-bread on a windy Good Friday. Let us not get carried away with our notoriety. It's all ideal for indolent MP's and councillors. Grist to the mill. Whilst you're worrying about 'dirty goings on' you are not concerning yourselves with 'their' indolence and lack of care. Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Indolence and Lack of Care! Sort of catchy in a way, and straight to the point. It will serve as a working title for a home made Rochdale drama-documentary. What do all these students do when they have finished their media studies courses? Make pop music videos and write computer games?

What else can they do????? Everybody should go to university. Everybody should get a degree. Everybody should get a good paid job thereafter. And everybody should reside in Utopia where the elephants make their nests in rhubarb trees. It's social engineered twaddle. In the 'real' world you should do that to which you consider yourself suited and anything else required to pay the bills and bring up the family - if that's what you want. There isn't going to be the 'jobs' for everyone and some will have to be content with 'social' works and a reasonably structured living. Regardless of 'what should be'.

Meanwhile the 'robots' will attend to everything else -. believe it or not I saw a robot bricklaying the other day. Ten robots to one human overseer. What does that tell you? Rolling Eyes
