50 Shades a classic... really CNN?

i was at work today and walked pas the tv with CNN on it where the headline said something like"50 Shades, a classic book". i laughed my ass off. Ether the CNN staff are idiots, are there are that many people in the US that don't know what real literature is. 50 shades is far from a classic. if that were the case, the porno "Pirates" is a classic action romance of 2005.

Its not that i hate the book, but its no classic. its more of a romantic comedy slash drama with hard core sex scenes in between. ive read fan fictions that have this quality of writing, hell, some even better. who the hell uses the phrase "oh my" about 78 times in one book. i understand its just lady porn, but I know plenty girls that would rather go find a guy to do that kind of stuff with rather then read about it. Even if they couldn't they would just watch a porno. at least soft core porn has more romance then sex, that's about level with 50 shades. i know I'm ranting but its just a me thing. smut is smut, don't try and defend it as a smart, intelligent book about self exploration cause its not. its a book about a half wit shy girl, a serious business man, and how they solve all there problems with his penis (thank you family guy).

I'm just saying call it what it is. now if you excuse me, I'm going to read all 3 copies of "Cocktails". there about these gay boys learning how to express themselves through sexual exploration and learning how to love again, its very deep.

Dude...it's sad to say that America has spoken (and failed us miserably) since this book has outbeat Harry Potter, y'know, a story about magic and wizards...and coming of age and actually learning stuff...it's become the top selling book EVAR on Amazon.com.

So yes, America has spoken...and told me that literature-wise, they're all a buncha nimrods that will buy anything someone tells them to.

What the hell? I've never even heard of 50 Shades or whatever it is.

Then again, I'm more into authors like S. A. Swann, David Wellington, Jeanne C. Stein, Carrie Vaughn, Kelley Armstrong, Patricia Briggs....

hmmm....I'm sensing a trend here.....

So woman are allowed to have porn and call it classic?
But men are not allowed to call their porn by a better name?

You don't have to be good to be classic, just popular.

Just wait until they make Sherlock Holmes and Watson more then friends. that will be a real classic.

yeah i herd about that. in fact, i think that's more of what the news story was about. i remember seeing them toss up the cover of Sherlock Holmes. WTF!! the idea of them being lovers, i could care less about that honestly, but them taking the time to do several chapters of them having sex or something sounds unnecessary. unless them having sex adds to the mystery like Watson's dick was a murder weapon or something, i don't see how it would add anything to the story at all.

CNN sorta gave up any legitimacy it had as a news outlet around the time they started using Facebook comments as news and using polls on Twitter to decide which news stories they'd report on.  I wouldn't listen to a word they say.  They're not quite as bad as Faux News, i.e. they don't blatantly make shit up or ignore little things like "facts" and "truth" in favor of ultra-conservative spin then have the gall to call themselves "fair and balanced," but... CNN's pretty bad.  I'd just ignore it.  Or maybe point and laugh.

lol 50 shade of grey was originally a Twilight fan fiction.  CNN and Fox news are both complete bullshit. And America is a fucking joke in its entirety

Somewhere in the Lake District of England, there's a hotel where the manager removed the bibles from all 40 rooms and replaced them with 50SG. He had never read it; he only wanted to put "a recent best-seller" in place of the bibles. I'm truly amused with that, particularly with all the uproar it caused. Otherwise, I have no interest in 50SG or its recent sequel. If you'll forgive the self-pimpage, I wish my own book would get popular in the furry community; I've got two sequels waiting to get finished, if the first one gets popular. (Poisson: If you think that's inappropriate, I'll delete it. Thanks.)

don't worry i know what you mean. heck, if 50 shades could get published, you shouldn't have any issue getting your work out there.

Thank you. It needed to be said. This country is actually illiterate enough to consider a badly written fanporn as a 'classic'. Shit...I'm not proud...I'VE written better fanporn...with better dialogue and plot movement than that horrifying excuse for serial tree murder. I've finally made up my mind to pursue serious author status...because its now clear that talent isn't in any way required...so even if I only have a little...I still have more than enough. The bar has been lowered so much that I can clear it with a slight hop. In the end...I'm not sure what terrifies me more...that I might be better than whats passing as lit these days...or that I might not.
