Each and every day I have to research the media, products, services, and stories. Sometimes my research takes me really deep down the rabbit hole. Since living in New Zealand (2007-2013), I have been tracking and following a website “Reporters Without Borders.”
Today, the website made the following request:
RSF urges journalists to quit Apple iCloud China by 28 February
1). Avoid Ass-Holes. There is an ass-hole born every minute in Hollywood, don’t you be one of them. (Be a class act and be the person people remember through your kindness).
2). Watch How The People Around You Treat Others. You will learn more by watching how someone treats the waiter or waitress during lunch. (If they abuse your server, then it is only a matter of time before they harm you).
3). Avoid Envious and Jealous People Make a list of people who won’t support you in your project and never call them again. (Envy and Jealousy is the #1 reason why most projects fail, don’t get caught up in this).
4). Focus On Building Your Team. Surround yourself with the best team possible who understand what you are doing.
5). Learn How To Turn Down Money. The wrong investor will shred and cancel your project before you do so get clear on who you want to put money in.
6). Hollywood Isn’t In Hollywood Anymore. Don’t believe me? Sign up with Netflix, Hulu or HBO Go, and you will see what I mean! Their content is for a global audience.
7). Keep Thier Secrets. If you are serious about being a producer, you are going to end up as hearing everyone’s secrets.
8). Focus On Your Strength. Take action based on your strength, not your weakness.
9.) Determine Your Exit Strategy First. The goal is to know who you are selling too and where you want your project to appear.
10). A Non-Disclosure Agreement Is Either The Start Or The End Of Your Relationship
To dig deeper down the Hollywood Rabbit Hole you may want to consider these additional research links:
It was over three years ago that I had an opportunity to attend a live taping of Last Man Standing at ABC Television. When the show was on the air, it actually was produced at CBS in Studio City where I discovered 35+ sound stages that are 100% booked for the next five years. (Thank you Netflix)!
As a producer whenever I get a chance to watch other producer’s and talent, I always take the opportunity to say yes! What impressed me most was the team that Tim Allen had assembled to produce this hit show for ABC. If you know anything about creating content is that there is always a political component to all content.
For those of you who are in my inner-circle, you know my stance on Vaccines. The episode that I watched in production was an open debate on the Pro-Vaccine vs. Anti-Vaccine argument. It was refreshing to see these topics discussed so openly in front of a live studio audience with real comedy and humor built-in. Good for you Tim Allen for tackling such a controversial subject?
Afterwards, I asked my dear friend Wendy about how the show was doing for ABC TV. Her answer and I am paraphrasing here was that the show was doing great in the ratings and their advertisers were happy.
We all know how Hollywood works right? It all comes down to the ratings. You have them, they love you. You don’t have them, and they cancel you. With Tim Allen, there was something different. What was it? Here was a highly profitable show for ABC TV and the show is canceled because I think someone at the network was pissed that Hillary Clinton lost the election.
Roseanne Barr knows her audience, and I am confident she won’t let them down. I’ll tell you something else that I know about the American Culture and Politics. You have to win your argument culturally first before you can win it politically.
Do you want to know about politics? Look at the politics of TELL-LIE-VISION and look at how many companies are involved in producing a show. These were the comments I found when Tim Allen went off the air.
Fan outrage over the sudden cancellation of Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing” is still fresh in a lot of minds. Being one of the few non-news shows on television with a right-leaning perspective — you only need one hand to count the rest — many cried foul upon the announcement that it was being taken off the air.
ABC, the network that carried the show, claimed it was going to make money for Disney since production was being handled by 20th Century Fox. However, Allen and many others believed it had everything to do with its pro-conservative messages. Seeing as how “Last Man Standing” was doing well in the ratings, especially after six years, the theory seemed highly plausible.
But it was announced recently that the Roseanne reboot would feature main characters that were actually Trump supporters. While the cast will express a diverse range of political opinions, Republican will be the Conner household’s primary voting block.
“I said, and I’ll say it again… I have always attempted to portray a realistic portrait of the American people and of working class, you know working-class people. And, in fact, it was working class people who elected Trump,” said show’s lead Roseanne Barr according to Fox News.
“So I felt that, yeah, that was very real, and something that needed to be discussed. And especially about polarization in the family, and people actually hating other people for the way they voted, which I feel is not American. And so I wanted to bring it right down the middle, and we did,” she added.
However, as Fox News reported, the announcement did not go down well with some Last Man Standing fans who feel Allen got shafted.
The iPhone 7s finally landed in my lap last year as I had used a BlackBerry device for two years. There was something that I noticed about the phone. It is truly addictive. The engineering folks at Apple have done a spectacular job of making sure you go nowhere without your iPhone. The technology in this device is impressive and yeah look at the iPhone 8s and iPhone X too!
Switch the settings on your iPhone to Grey Scale. When you do this, your brain will shift, and you will be on your smartphone a lot less. If you don’t know how to do that, I’ve placed a link to so that you can quickly switch your display. Yes: http://bit.ly/2F2P5Qc
Just a few thoughts on the world before the flood.
It says in Book of Enoch chapter 6:6 that the fallen angels came to earth on Mount Hermon in the days of Noah’s ancestor Jared.
In Genesis 5 and 7 from Jared’s birth to his first son Enoch is 162 years and the years from Jared to Noah and his sons plus 100 years to create the ark adds total 1196 years from Jared to the actual flood.
So if you are to look back from now in 2018 AD and go back 1196 years…that would be 822 AD.
So from there how much did the population grow and how much did technology grow???
That gives a rough look how much life must have grown and changed in the pre-flood world from Jared to the flood and Noah.
Noah begat his son’s age 500 plus 100 years to the ark and flood seen in Genesis 7.
So Jesus spoke as in the days of Noah… well from age 500 to the flood alone was 100 more years that were horrible on the earth.
So from the building of the ark to flood from Jared were 1096 years of generations.
The fallen angels and their giant children corrupted the DNA chains of nature. Wars, high technology…
Did the fallen angelic host come appearing as aliens and gods to humans in Jared’s times?
All this alien stuff is not new. It’s a very ancient deception.
The Book of Enoch describes the pre-flood world and the things the fallen host taught women and men like cosmetics and war machines…
The women they lusted for were the first witches they took and seduced.
Old myths of Atlantis and Lemuria before the flood tell of a golden high tech age most horrific.
Off the coasts of Africa and Florida alone are sunken civilizations before the flood.
Again looking back to the world in Europe and Asia in 822 to now…
That’s serious rise of populations, empires, technologies…
This aliens thing does not excite me to spazz out. It’s a very old scam and evidence of the fallen angelic host coming to earth again to be worshipped as gods.
The point is if this Alien thing is going on now, it was in the days of Noah before the flood.
AI isn’t new… it was there before the flood.
All the weird genetic splicing now in DUMBS bases was going on before the flood.
That’s WHY the flood happened was to stop this DNA monster creation business.
Noah was told to take ONLY creatures who had reproduced after their own kind in Genesis which meant no DNA aberration monsters like what we call dinosaurs etc.
Good morning world! When I woke up this morning, I was sincerely thinking about the power of the individual vs. the collective. Read this blog posting by Jon Rappoport, I found it to be eloquent and an inspirational observation of where we are at in 2018.
The most common comment that I hear in casual conversation or on the phone is “why have so many American’s lost their empathy and sympathy for others?”
We do not see the world the way the world is; we see the world the way we are.
President Trump talked and campaigned in a Dystopian America. His critics claim that Trump is wrong and delusional. Trump is right, we are in a Dystopian America. Why? There are more Americans each day who die from a Heroin or Opiate Drug overdose than from a car accident. Trump knows this and is taking action. More U.S. Military die from suicide than die in battle. Since 9/11, America has shifted from the Constitutional Republic into a Corporatocracy. Have you accepted this? I have, I no longer live in denial.
You can’t think because there are too many distractions. Think now why over 60% of Americans are on a Big-Pharma drug.
Nearly 3 in 5 American adults take a prescription drug, up markedly since 2000 because of much higher use of almost every type of medication, including antidepressants and treatments for high cholesterol and diabetes.
In a study published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers found that the prevalence of prescription drug use among people 20 and older had risen to 59 percent in 2012 from 51 percent just a dozen years earlier. During the same period, the percentage of people taking five or more prescription drugs nearly doubled, to 15 percent from 8 percent.
One likely factor driving the increased use: obesity.
Researchers noted that eight of the 10 most commonly used drugs in the United States are for hypertension, heart failure, diabetes and other elements of the “cardiometabolic syndrome.” In addition, another frequently prescribed drug treats gastroesophageal reflux, a widespread condition among the overweight or obese.
We all wake up to the truth in our own way. It is our own personal journey. For so many of us, we just have to scratch our heads and wonder why.
In my humble view, Americans were taken over by dopamine delivered each minute and each hour and each day to your iPhone.
According to an article recently published online by NPR, the constant need to be online and the addiction to dopamine off of the phone. This is what I found:
How does teen behavior now differ from generations past?
Today’s teens are just not spending as much time with their friends in person, face-to-face, where they can really read each others’ emotions and get that social support. And we know from lots and lots of research that spending time with other people in person is one of the best predictors for psychological well-being and one of the best protections against having mental health issues.
What is this generation facing that worries you so much?
iGen is showing mental health issues across a wide variety of indicators. They’re more likely than young people just five or 10 years ago to say that they’re anxious, that they have symptoms of depression, that they have thought about suicide or have even [attempted] suicide. So across the board, there’s a really consistent trend with mental health issues increasing among teens.
There is something much more profound that is going on. Do you ever wonder why there are so many cell phone towers? With 5-G being implemented all over the USA, it will be a lot tougher by 2020 to get your film made because you won’t be able to think. Don’t believe me? Here is a little light reading for you to enjoy!
Here is a 45-page report on how your cell phones are messing up your brain:

George Lucas is speaking about his film THX 1138, a profound and prolific film where love and all connection between humans is now a crime. Here is the trailer.
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), more than 6.5 million people above the age of 11 used prescription drugs for non-medical reasons in 2013. That’s more than cocaine (1.5 million), hallucinogens (1.3 million) and heroin (681,000) combined.
While painkillers are the leading cause of accidental death, abuse of antibiotics led to the development of super bugs and antidepressant prescriptions rose more than 400 percent from 2005-08. Meanwhile, the pharmaceutical industry brought in more than $1 trillion last year, a number that’s grown every year since 2005.
Despite the growth of public awareness about the problem, the abuse isn’t stopping. Anti-drug abuse organizations claim the public still possesses a major misconception about prescription drugs, believing that since doctors prescribe them they aren’t dangerous.
