I will NOT read your F!@##$ Script!

Posted on

Sometimes we ask things of other people without asking ourselves what our asking means. (a purposely confusing statement for the conundrum we often create)  Confused? While screenwriter Josh Olson wrote crudely on the subject,  it was exactly the right point of view to get point across to those of us who just don’t get it!

Should you really ask? What exactly ARE you asking?

I’ve often consented to doing “favors” for others “gratis”, both within and outside my realm of expertise.  However, me myself, I tend to have a lot of guilt about asking others for their input in my personal and business endeavors.  For whatever reason, when I am asked –I just can’t say “NO.”  There have been very few times when I say, “no” (usually due to previous obligations or my inability to oblige) but more times than I can count where I’ve said, “yes.”  (insert sigh here)

After I’ve agreed and committed myself to undertaking someone else’s task I have taken on a duty.   I place an extreme amount of time and thought into my efforts.  Yet, to no avail. It seems that no one really gets it (it really doesn’t matter who asked).

I will stress about the deadline (even a perceived deadline), have increasing anxiety about the time it was taking me, skipped a few meals in order to make up for that time, passed on another appointment, neglected some of my own work, obligations, duties, chores, or worse…family.  In the end, someone says, “thanks” or “that’s ok, I got soandso to do it” or “I’ll keep that in mind.”  All the hours of built up tension and hesitation at presenting a result less than par because a certain somebody entrusted you with something that may or may not impact their future, comes to an unclimactic poof.  Whatever. Right?  I could NOT agree with Josh Olson more.  I second his emotion and that of other fields that run into the same dilemma.

Excerpt from the Article by Josh olson:

“There’s a great story about Pablo Picasso. Some guy told Picasso he’d pay him to draw a picture on a napkin. Picasso whipped out a pen and banged out a sketch, handed it to the guy, and said, “One million dollars, please.”

“A million dollars?” the guy exclaimed. “That only took you thirty seconds!”

“Yes,” said Picasso. “But it took me fifty years to learn how to draw that in thirty seconds.’ “

I think Josh Olson’s tone in this article is perfectly suited for the encountering audience.  Good job Josh! Way to be a dick!

“So the next time you engage a so-called friend, or friend of a friend or otherwise forcefully demanding “gratis” = FREE services/ consultation from them (doesn’t matter for what) under the usual unoriginal guise of friendship-related contractual obligation–ask yourself what am I truly asking for? Would I do the same for them?  How should I respond after they’ve given this professional gift of their own free will? Finally ask yourself …Are you really that good of a friend?

I just have to say it…..” I will NOT read your F!@#$! Script! I will NOT write your F!@#$% recommendation, paper, letter, give my opinion, take your photo, photoshop your picture, come to your event, write about that event,  blog for you etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. ” Whew…

Jay-Z vs Kanye Fight!!!!???

Posted on

I’m remiss to believe this source. According to Media Take OUT a clash of the titans has occurred. Kanye and Jay-Z had a disagreement on stage in front of fans? I hope not. Fans pay them too much money to be entertained and provide a GOOD show. Who knows maybe this is part of the show. It’s not unheard of. However, if they truly lost professionalism on stage. Boo on them. IF THIS RUMOR IS TRUE…considering the source… this will be interesting how it plays out in the media. My guess is they will TRY to bury it. If NOT Kanye will open his big mouth and blab even if Jay-Z tries to stay away from it.

Don’t get mad at me!! I’m just tellin’ like it T-I-Tiiz!!!

We’ll see what tolerance Americans has for this kind of behavior. Our girls are experiencing this everyday. Should he be made an exampleof?

Palin Propaganda – McCain’s Mix-Up…What was he thinking?

Posted on

The Republican Ticket

The Republican Ticket


I don’t care what anybody says. This is a stunt! Where the hell was she on the short list and the last year?

Let me just address each topic one by one:

Qualifications: While Obama & Palin may be neck and neck when it comes to foriegn policy (with Obama slightly ahead), there is something to be said about this fact. Palin is even less qualified than Obama. Isn’t this a little hypocritical on the part of the Republicans?

Getting To Know: The public has had over a year to pick apart Obama. We won’t even get 3 months to pick apart Palin and get to know her? Give me a break! People have more time to choose their cars!!! Again, wasn’t this a concern Republicans touted about Obama?

McCain’s Age: In the event that McCain kills over (the average life span in the U.S. for males 74.5), this is a possibility although he’s married and has access to the best doctors, it’s a valid concern. In this event…she’s our next President. If we want a woman President. I think America wants to choose their own female President and not have someone by default or irregular nepotism become the head of our country!

Gimmick: Be honest, there’s an appeal in having a female, she’s easy on the eyes, she’s somewhat of a maverick from what I understand, she’s someone no one has picked apart until the announcement, she’s got a good , track record, she’s young (the opposite of McCain). Why not attract soccer mom Republicans, guys who are easily wooed, those who like to get behind the underdog, those who like a good cause, and those who think she might just be a regular gal?

Ticket Pick: It is customary to fill in the gaps with your VP. But, this may be extreme. See GIMMICK.

The Scandal: Pressuring officials to fire her sister’s ex-husband (State Trooper Wooten) — an abuse of power in a deserved case as it would seem. Hell I woulda’ done the same and so would a lot of average Americans (at least that’s how they are going to side with her). Her 17-year old daughter is with child. She’s just like any other fearful mother who has experienced a nightmare. Raising a family is hard and she’s stuck by her daughter regardless. People are going to relate to that.

Thought: If you can’t watch your own daughter and govern a state how are you going to watch her and govern an entire country. As far as I’m concerned, that’s negligent parenting (although I don’t think the young lady deserves to be splattered all over the media. How is that for parenting? Palin had to know what she’d be putting her daughter through. Wait it might just be “IN” to be a teen parent who knows).

Finally, just because we like someone does NOT mean that they are good for the country. Hell, on first take I like the woman…but I need more than that.

Don’t get mad at me…I’m just telling it like it T-I-Tiz!!

Isaac Hayes - no longer with us!

Isaac Hayes - no longer with us!

Another entertainer that touched our lives was found dead today. Reported earlier this morning Isaac Hayes was found dead today in his home lying next to his treadmill!! Mr. Hayes brought into our lives music that moved the soul such as…the theme from “Shaft” and “Hot Buttered Soul.” He was also a favorite voice on the show, South Park. He is another great artist that will be missed.

This comes on the heels of the loss of Bernie Mac another entertainer that touched our daily lives.

What’s really funny?
