America’s Next Top Model: CW Networks CRAP and AWESOMENESS

You'd love to be one of those girls, huh? Let me show you how...from my perspective.

It seems that there are a lot of “lady topics” coming up lately, huh?  Well, I AM married and those topics are relevant topics to talk about as well.

So America’s Next Top Model was being watched in my home.  -Ok, fine.  I was watching it one lovely morning while eating breakfast with my wife-and there are two things that bothered the freak out of me.

Thing #1:  There is a Modern Orthodox Jewish girl on the show and there is a conflict

Thing #2:  There is a girl on the show with issues about cutting her hair.

Ok, so there always seems to be a girl on the show that has issues with cutting her hair.  Here’s my issue though.  I understand that she chose to be there and that that is what happens and that’s what the “industry demands” blah blah blah.

Isn’t there a song by some girl singing about, “Blah blah blah?”  She was singing about this.

These girls are slaves of the industry and Tyra Banks and everyone else is looking at them as if they’re the idiots because they don’t conform to the ways of the industry.

CRAZY TALK!!

How about this ladies, look at THEM like they’re the idiots the next time they ask you to do something that you don’t feel comfortable doing.

Here’s the thing.

Oh, by the way, this is the same thing that drove me crazy with the Orthodox Jewish girl.  It’s her own decision but here is my point.  They asked her if she observed the Shabbat (Jewish Sabbath day), which is from Friday night to Saturday night.  She said, yes.  They then told her that these models work every day, is that a problem?  She then said that she could do that.

Once again.  Here’s the thing.

Ladies, gents, anyone in the industry.  YOU make the industry, don’t let it make you.  Don’t just let them slap you around and make you feel like an idiot because you want to be you.  I understand that part where you play the game until you’re “big enough” to change the game but if you aren’t who you are now you’ll find yourself being a slave and complacent by the time you are big enough.  Take a look at Tyler Perry.  He created his own way of doing things from the start because the system just wasn’t for him.

This post is for everyone in the acting, modeling, and entertainment industry.  I’m telling you to be you and to not be ashamed about it and don’t apologize.  Someone can say, “yeah well, where did that get you?”  I’d respond with I’m producing my own magic with two separate companies and working on this one as we speak.  The big part of this process is figuring out what I want and what I feel like I can do without getting bored.

I’m also working on a $70 Million dollar film script that is going to be one of the masterpieces of my life, if G-d blesses.

So.  If you need some support or you want to tell me your story please leave your message below.  This is a big problem and is causing a lot of people to hate themselves later on because it just doesn’t work out the way you thought it would.  One of the girls on the show got sent home after getting her hair cut off.  Her point was that she went through all of that pain and then went home.

It’s a growing experience for her but…

Be You.

Focus Up.

Glee… Sue Sylvester as the Grinch & A Very Glee Christmas

All right.  I admit it.  I enjoy ‘Glee’.
And when I say enjoy, I mean that I watch it every morning Monday through Friday.
How do I do that?  Well, as much as it seems like I’m in the know on every topic on the planet, I am and I’m definitely not at the same time.
Take a note of this.  If everyone is doing it, I’m not.  If everyone isn’t doing it, I’ll take a look.  That little subconscious motto that I didn’t realize seems to govern every one of my choices, worked in my favor for this little Teenage Horror Workshop because of all of the back episodes that I never saw.
Here’s the amazing thing and the saving grace part.  I’m an actor.  That’s right.  Surprise, surprise.  I’ve worked on and in film, television, theater, musical theater, Shakespeare, Voice-overs, video games, etc. etc.  So…  Several of my acting buddies were into this little number and it wreaked of Christopher Guest and “Best in Show” and I owed it to the entire Musical Theater community to give it a whirl.
It paid off.  This show is pretty awesome, funny, and so on.  So many good points it’ll take a few later posts to ‘get the led out’ and spill it.
And now for the BUNK METER.
What the heck with all of the kissing and sex and all of that again?  Once again.  I’m sounding like  a prude and I’m not but it’s frickin’ nasty to see these kids making out all of the time.
Heads up though.  Most of these cats aren’t ‘kids’ after all.  Some of them are 27 years old so Ok on that note.  BUT.  They’re portrayed as being teens and that’s the one thing that grosses me out about this show.
Oh yeah, another thing-hehe-  Remember that post where I was talking about the message that is being sent through the news?  Same ol’ same ol’ here, y’all.  I’m still waiting for my cigar moment and when I do it’ll be an audio post talking about why ‘the Man’ wants kids to ‘act stupid’ and deal with all of these sex-issues.
Think about it.  That’s all I’m sayin’.

Easily the best execution of a show to date. Sue the Grinch in "A Very Glee Christmas"

Well, I’m off to watch another episode of Glee.  I’m almost caught up, dang it.  Kind of sucks ’cause I won’t be able to have it on demand.  Hmph.
P.S.  Best show so far to me, “A Very Glee Christmas”
Until next time.
Focus Up.

“Skins” to be continued…

All right.  I still haven’t had my cigar but I’m about to get my humidor out and give ’em a whiff.  Maybe that’ll open up the flood-gates to let the magic out on the topic of why “The Man” wants young kids to act stupid.

(‘Act stupid’ is a poor sentence and description but using poor sentence structure is a perfect way to describe the tone of that sentence.  So there.)

Sooo.  Let’s deal with the idea that “Skins” helps folks to see that they should teach their children properly regarding sex and drugs.  

I heard this great story by a Rabbi that said that in order to show your son the ways of the world you wouldn’t take him to the ‘Red light district’ in Amsterdam, give him $1000, and tell him that you’ll see him in the morning.  That’s not parenting, that’s foolishness.

The reason that’s foolish is because we don’t teach by showing and then removing, we teach by showing proper behavior, period.  100%  we all learn by seeing what someone else did and then realizing that we don’t want that for ourselves but that is taking a situation and getting the most out of it.

Putting something in front of a young person and then saying don’t is Identical to saying, “DON’T THINK OF A PINK ELEPHANT.”

I don’t think that the parents who said that ‘Skins’ shows us what to look out for were saying to have the youngin’ watch the show and show them that bad stuff happens but I decided to go in this direction anyways because I feel like folks are letting life happen to them and not AFFECTING change.

“Oh, this world is just a messed up place.”

We need to do this and we need to do that.

As much as I’m in to action you’ve got to make sure you’re doing the right kind of action.

I was just talking this over with my partner in another company and we were talking about how you don’t just spend time on

Don't be this guy any more. Read 'Rich Dad Poor Dad' by Robert Kiyosaki

your business and expect something to come of it.  Unless you’re an employee and you’re not trained to understand the value of time and effectiveness, efficiency, and quality, then just sitting somewhere and gettting a paycheck trained you to think that spending time on something may get results.

Well, guess what??

CRAZY TALK!!

“Piss-poor training leads to piss-poor results.”  Practice doesn’t make perfect… Perfect practice makes perfect.

Sooo…

The point is that instead of being shocked with this new show coming out and shaking your head and saying “whoa is me” and thinking the end of the world is coming, do something about it.

AND I DON’T MEAN RALLYING!  (Unless you think that’ll help)

What I mean is, BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE!   -Focus Up!

That’s right.  BE the change you want to see and quit talking about it.  Model the type of person you want your children and neighbors to be and don’t just wait for the moment to ridicule them and call them heathens.  I don’t mean just “LOVE ‘EM INTO THE KINGDOM.”  I just mean to BE what you wish you were seeing on the tele.

Unless you’re one of the idiots and dipS#$&s watching these little boys and girls mess their bodies up.  In that case you just sit and read all of my posts.  Sitting still where you are and reading this is better than leaving this page or doing something stupid, right?   Thanks.

All right.  That’s all she wrote.  Talk with you later and looking forward to spreading the magic and changing the world, one post at time.

Focus Up.

New MTV Series “Skins”…

What the freak is this all about?

What the freak is this all about? Looks like a bunch of dazed yuppie kids.

The first thing that happened as I was about to post some amazing, life-altering message to you was I googled “Talk Radio Niche” and I found this station in San Diego.  The show is “Your family matters with Dr. Keith Kanner.”

I listened intently for a good 10-seconds and turned it off.  Not because it wasn’t good but because my stinkin’ AT&T (that’s right, I said it) internet connection SUCKS!!!  I’ve got it at the office of my other company and guess what???   It SUCKS there too.

But on to better things.

They were talking about “the new MTV show”.  Hush, hush, shock and awe.  I didn’t have a clue what it was called because that’s all I ever here about the dumb thing.  Sooo.  I went out on my Sherlock hunt and spent another 15-seconds googling and found the culprit.

Dunh, dunh, dunh.  MTV SKINS!!!!

So let’s see what’s going on.

From what I’ve been hearing, which hasn’t been much but typical panic, it seems that everyone is overreacting a bit and panicking about something that may not be all that bad.  So here’s a little excerpt from the series description:

“The risqué show, which follows a cast of underage teens popping pills, drinking and engaging in various sexual acts….”

ARE YOU FRICKIN’ KIDDING ME???  Ok.  Maybe it is a bit crazy after all.  Here’s another bit:

“…not only are the characters underage, the actors are as well – the youngest just 15 years old. According to a “Washington Post” report,  Episode 3 will feature a character running down the street naked, after a night of experimenting with erectile dysfunction drugs. The actor in the scene is only 17.”

All right.  Don’t take me to be some conservative Kat because I’m really not, but this is some -wait for it-

CRAZY TALK!

Yeah right. That's hot? Why would you want to do anything with her? Maybe I'm crazy.

 

That’s right.  You just heard it in context.

There is a book regarding human behavior and thinking and psychology that sites some extremely shocking information regarding the 6 reasons we do anything.  In that book by ‘Robert Chaldini,’ it shows the instance of increased suicide rates in the demographic of the latest suicide.  The time range affected suicides even up to more than 3 months after the incident aired on the news!!!

That basically means that when we see someone on TV that we identify with based on age, race, and even location and more, whatever their behavior is we subconsciously and conscious take part in the same behavior.

You want some more CRAZY TALK?  Well here you go.  It’s getting wild in here now.

THOSE STATS ARE NOT UNKNOWN TO THE YUPPIE RICH PRODUCERS BEHIND THEIR DESKS!

That’s right.  When the sophisticated want to collect on some insurance death-benefits they don’t hire a hitman, they find a kid who just committed suicide and put him on the news.  You may think I’m crazy but that’s why I’m here and that’s why you’re reading.  But I’m not making stuff up and deep down you know it’s true.

So…

The question you may be thinking is why in the world the few yuppies in charge want the youth to behave this way?   

That’s a crazy deep question for a crazy deep time.  I’ve got to get my cigar and coffee out for that one and get comfortable.

NEXT TIME…

I’m going to address the idiots that are saying this show helps them and other parents to education their children as to why you should be careful with drugs and sex.
