Are we choosing to be our own celebrities?

Monday, August 04, 2014

I was watching a T.V gossip show the other day . On the show they were talking about people having plastic surgery to look like celebrities. One woman on the show a popular model with a reality show said' I was lucky, I hit the genetic gene pool, I don't need any surgery to make me beautiful , Now days everyone wants to be a celebrity, but I know what the people want and how to give it to them . So go ahead ! Make your Youtube's . Get your 32 views , if that's what you think will give you fame."As sh e said this she rolled her eyes and pouted.
That got me thinking about something I never considered before .Are celebrities worried that we will not look to them to set the trends anymore? Will companies look to the average Joe or Jane to help push their products from now on ? Are we looking for real people to be our inspiration? Is the standard they hold us up to getting just to high and we cant live up to it ?
First I would love to say to that super model. Honey .. I know a lot people on Youtube have a lot more then 32 hits ! Thousands , Tens of thousands in fact ! Is that making you worried dear ? That we are no longer looking to you with your perfect genes and highly paid photographers and beauty consultants , fashion consultants and P.R people for advice ? Instead we are looking at real women with real life and other jobs besides modeling who happen to want to share their advice . um for Free ! No strings attached .They are just as beautiful , some more so then you . I guess its those perfect genes. Except they are mom's or small business owners.what ever the case may be , and they are doing what you do and doing it VERY well !
For us .. Its a time that we can use this power or fall back in to the trap again. We have to let go of fake perfection that the media wants us to adapt , and start looking for real life heros. I think this is going to be really fun !
Someday I would love to write a blog sharing my favorite REAL PEOPLE on the internet that I turn to for advice ! This site also goes to prove that real people can help real people ! A couple of my favorite Spark people I look to for inspiration and motivation are JEWELS571 and KAREN _IS _HERE ! Thanks Ladies !

How much food do they eat during one 30 minute tv show ???

Saturday, July 19, 2014

I just watched a 30 minute tv show , There were 12 times people ate during the half hour ! No wonder we munch out while watching tv ! To give credit there was one part of the show that showed people jogging ! lol.

    when I was in France watching tv with my mom I pointed out to her that American television has all these fast food commercials starting before dinner straight through till ten or so at night non stop- she said couldn't believe it and no wonder Americans eat so much since there's that constant reminder.... I noted French tv commercialism did NOT follow the same pattern.

Remember when booze commercials were forced to change advertising schedule? If you were a teen in the seventies you could count on be told how great drinking was about every half hour-that ended Tobacco was sold the same way. To tell you the truth I'm not very happy with prescription drugs being pushed down tv viewers throats.

    I find this very annoying and the health experts are always telling us about our obesity.....they need to ban some of the food commercials as they are a hazzard to our health. emoticon

    I hate broadcast TV because of all the eating, PLUS the fast food commercials. I try to watch DVD or Netflix because who needs encouragement to overeat???

Help ! I keep channeling Rodney Dangerfield and I can't stop !

Friday, July 18, 2014

I have been watching a show on the Hallmark Channel called Ceder Cove not really my type of show I normally watch but somehow I am hooked ! As I am watching I realized that I don't know how to act mature ! like EVER !
Many people have told me I am the funniest person they know and I should be a professional comedian but I am on like 24/7 ! Behavior that would seem funny at 20 doesnt seem so funny now at my age ! lol.
I am even beginning to LOOK like Rodney ! I need some Respect PEOPLE !!!
I was married very young and was a VERY INNOCENT Girl who's parents were over protective and also very funny people themselves , Being funny was a talent and a strength in my family . I was then married for years to a very unfunny controlling guy who didnt really appreciate my humor ! I work also with young people and I am sorry to say I am tired of them , God bless their hearts , they are not to blame ! It has been said that comedians are people that need to work out a lot of issues ! I bet not even Rodney was Rodney all the time ! Its exhausting ! Anyways I am serious about reaching my goals and no I dont want to ever lose my FUNNY ! but I can not use it as a shield for my emotions or worries any more either !
Btw LOVE YOU RODNEY RIP !


I am seeing some resemblance here !

Also agree with Susan, that clowns are some of the most depressed people. Since you are into Bollywood stuff.... there is a very old movies, which stars a yesteryears here...my all time favourite hero Raj Kapoor...the name of the movie is 'Mera Naam Joker' that is My Name is Joker.

    Love Rodney! Clowns are sometimes the most depressed people. They spend their lives "on" to make others happy, yet no one sees the pain within.

I was surprised you were not a member of one of the SP Sarcasm or Humor teams LOL!

    A little humor to get us through each day is a good thing, but like you said, sometimes it is good to not have to be "on" 24/7. You will find the right balance for you...have a great weekend!
