The Best Noise Of All Is Silence

Reflections On When To Remain Silent by Mitch Santell

Rumi-On-Silence

There are days where I think about things but don’t really know how to put them in writing. Then I go out over to the internet, and I find the perfect sequence of words that express what I am feeling in the moment.

Here is what I found today:

Don’t make it your life’s mission to find out why someone did you wrong. Make it your life’s mission to be so resilient and sure of who you are that you no longer need answers from others for their actions. Be so confident in who you are as a person that you are able to walk away from things that no longer serve you with your head held high. You don’t owe others explanations, and unfortunately they don’t owe you one either. Take that silence as protection from words that would have done more harm than good. Silence is sometimes the best thing that person could have given you because for the most part their words never really held their weight in the first place. Stop searching so hard for words of healing from people who hurt you in the first place. The person who broke you, will never be the one to fix you.

Here is my take: Do not let a person, a particular situation or an incident knock you down. There are so many times where we want to get out our point of view across that the person on the other side of the equation can only hear static.

Green New Deal To Leave California In The Dark

Commentary About Living In The Dark by Mitch Santell

Everything that you read in the newspaper and everything that you see on Tell-Lie-Vision, for the most part, is a lie.

If you are not in California, invest a few moments to see what California is doing that will put the lights out across America.

Silence Can Be The Biggest Voice Of All

Reflections and Observations on Silence by Mitch Santell

silence_title_image

Each and every day I work on myself more than anything else. What do I mean by this? I mean I keep my damn mouth shut and sit in silence and reflect at the moment. 

The reflection is how can a be a better human being, how can I share and show kindness to people who are so cold and Kloned off by their devices and their technology that they can’t really think for themselves anymore.

If you follow this blog if for some strange reason you simply came upon this site and wanted to know more, good for you!

Think for yourself, don’t allow anyone to tell you who you are or how to think. If you wish to live a life worrying about what other people think, then, by all means, go get a college education. The powers that be at most major Universities and Colleges will be happy to form your thinking and your thoughts for you.

Take a few moments to make yourself your favorite beverage including but not limited to a fresh coffee, a hot tea or a cold beer. Push the play button below (turn off your smartphone first) and see if you can slow down to hear what this man has to say to you.

To listen to him, you are going to have to be silent. Do you think you can?

May your journey be more comfortable than mine because I have to live in authentic truth all the time. Taking care of an Asperger’s Autistic daughter forces me daily to live in truth. 

I pray you find your truth. God bless you and make it a wonderful day!



 

Silence speaks

A Hollywood Story ~ Nancy Pelosi & Calif.

Commentary About Hollywood in Washington D.C. by Mitch Santell

It does not matter if you are liberal or conservative, democrat or republican, you know one thing is real, Nancy Pelosi is delusional, and I think may be drunk with power.

Here is a brief clip of what Nancy wants to do. Oh, man, this is going to get nasty.

Happy Sunday dear followers and readers, I wanted to let you know that this could make a great Hollywood movie.

Nancy has stated that she is the most powerful woman in America.

In the meantime, things are getting a bit stressed out here in Southern California.

In Washington D.C. it was a bit weird at the Lincoln Memorial.

Has President Trump suckered Democrats and the Deep State into a trap that will enable a radical downsizing of the federal bureaucracy?  In only five more days of the already “longest government shutdown in history” (25 days and counting, as of today), a heretofore obscure threshold will be reached, enabling permanent layoffs of bureaucrats furloughed 30 days or more.

This seems to be what was referenced in this remarkable essay written by an “unidentified senior Trump official” published in the Daily Caller, which vouches for the authenticity of the author and explains that it is protecting him from adverse career consequences should the name become known.  I strongly recommend reading the whole thing.

Don’t believe me that federal bureaucrats can be laid off?  Well, in bureaucratese, a layoff is called a RIF – a Reduction in Force – and of course, it comes with a slew of civil service protections.  But, if the guidelines are followed, bureaucrats can be laid off – as in no more job.  It is all explained by Michael Roberts here (updated after the beginning of the partial shutdown):

A reduction in force is a thoughtful and systematic elimination of positions.  For all practical purposes, a government RIF is the same thing as a layoff. …

Organizations must stick to predetermined criteria when sorting out what happens to each employee.  They must communicate with employees how and why decisions are made. …

In deciding who stays and who goes, federal agencies must take four factors into account:

1.    Tenure

2.    Veteran status

3.    Total federal civilian and military service

4.    Performance

Agencies cannot use RIF procedures to fire bad employees.

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).


a little mad 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).
Wisdom 2 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).

L.A. California’s Big Trend: Visiting Bong Shops and Cannabis Growers

Commentary by Mitch Santell

The ability to look back at your history puts you in a unique place called perspective. For anyone who is a baby boomer (my generation) or others afterward, it still is a fantastic shift how common Cannabis is in California. What you are about to read is really happening, I didn’t make this up!

Happy Wednesday to all my readers and followers.

Elon Musk of Tesla Takes A Hit Off A Spliff

By Hugo Martin

The Los Angeles Times

In Napa and Sonoma, tour bus operators ferry wine lovers between tasting rooms and vineyards. In Hollywood and environs, they shepherd the starstruck past the homes of the rich and famous.

Now they’re giving customers a mind-expanding look at one of Los Angeles’ burgeoning industries: pot.

Since recreational use of marijuana became legal a year ago, a pot tourism business has emerged, taking visitors behind the scenes of California’s estimated $7 billion cannabis industry.

“Every other day it seems another tour company is popping up,” said Lauren Jones, who owns Weedology, a cannabis tour company based in Los Angeles. “It’s like a gold rush.”

Each pot tour company has its own points of interest, generally including a grow facility, a bong maker or accessory retailers and a marijuana dispensary, where visitors can get joint-rolling lessons. Expect product discounts, but not freebies. And some tours allow smoking on board, for those so inclined.

Tours are priced between $40 and $200 a person, depending on the length of the trip, the stops and other features.

 

Starting this month, L.A.-based Green Tours is adding an itinerary that includes a pot-smoking session with weed-loving ‘70s movie legend, Tommy Chong. That tour is priced at $149 a person, owner Gene Grozovskiy said.

Grozovskiy’s father thought his son was nuts when he announced plans to quit his full-time job as a patient placement coordinator at a large Los Angeles hospital to start a marijuana tour company.

“At first pops was like, ‘You want to do what kind of tours?”’ Grozovskiy, 35, recalled. “He thought I was just being silly.”

Other tour company owners also come with respectable pedigrees and want to hop on what they see as a profitable future in recreational cannabis.

Jones, who works as a resources specialist at Los Angeles Unified School District, launched Weedology tours in February as a part-time gig that she hopes can eventually grow to a full-time job.

Ed Legarda is a tech-industry consultant who started Green Line Trips in January. It primarily offers tours on the weekends but he also hopes it will expand to daily operation.

Cannabis tourism also has caught on in other places where weed is legal, such as Colorado and Nevada. It’s part of a myriad ancillary businesses that make up the marijuana industry, including compliance consultants, cannabis testing labs, ultraviolet lighting installers, security and transportation services.

The National Cannabis Industry Assn., a trade group based in Colorado, has nearly 2,000 business as members, with about 60 percent to 70 percent of those companies providing services that don’t involve selling marijuana, spokesman Morgan Fox said.

“We have seen an explosion of businesses related to cannabis,” he said.

Nationwide, the sale of cannabis directly or indirectly employed an estimated 170,000 full-time workers in 2017, according to a study by the Arcview Group, an Oakland-based firm for investors in the marijuana industry. That number is expected to grow to more than 467,000 full-time workers in 2022, the firm estimates.

Kevin Spacey Appears In Court Today

In The What Do You Think Will Happen Department by Mitch Santell

Kevin Spacey appeared in court today in regards to a Sexual Assault charge.

The outcome of Kevin Spacey’s trial I believe will play a significant role in how Hollywood deals with the power of celebrities.

From my perspective as a documentary filmmaker, producer of radio and music, I sincerely hope that things go Kevin’s way. Mr. Spacey knows how “Dog Eat Dog ” Hollywood is. There is so much about Kevin Spacey’s situation that reminds me of what happened to Charlie Chaplin during the making of the film, “The Gold Rush.”

Globalism Vs. Sovereign Nations

More Border Chaos by Mitch Santell

The mess that is ever increasing at the USA Mexico border is not very fun to watch but for so many of us we watched as Germany, France, and many other countries were flooded with thousands daily from the middle east.

As a person who has empathy and sympathy for other people, I can understand why people around the world want a better life.

The challenge is that here in America we are struggling too and while the unemployment rate is low we still have to do what we can to bring every dollar home.

It has often been said that “those who don’t remember their history are doomed to repeat it,” that is not actually accurate. The real line is: “Those who do not study their history are doomed to repeat it!”

The number of people who read my blog, I don’t worry about. What I do worry about is are there others around the world who are picking up my posts.

The answer is yes. This is a map of my blog from today.

Positive Aspects Of Social Media

Commentary by Mitch Santell

POSITIVE-IMPACT-SOCIAL-MEDIA-1200
Regardless of how much I have complained about Social Media here at After Hollywood.Online throughout 2018, I can say that I am like-minded with these social media rules for CEO’s so check this out.

8 Rules for Corporate Communicators

  1. Social media is a haiku.If you have a complicated point to make, don’t post on Instagram, write an essay like they do at Google.
  2. “La compagnie n’est pas toi” (to paraphrase Louis IV). The company is not you, unless your name is on the front of the building.
  3. If you blow up, don’t double down: When wrong, admit it and move on.
  4. If you’re not a politician, stay away from politics. I served on a board that had a former Mayor on it, and we let him do all the politicking. He was a pro, we were amateurs.
  5. Don’t hit “send.” It is the most dangerous button after the nuclear button on President Trump’s desk.
  6. Unless you are North Korean, you are a capitalist. Don’t act like your main objective in life is saving humanity if you make money renting spare rooms to tenants.
  7. Virtue doesn’t look good in Pradas. Unless you are a celebrity, social justice ranting is going to look strange coming from you.
  8. Shut up: No one ever complained about a post you didn’t write.
