Ok then…the hits keep comin’

neckties

In an attempt to rid himself of the self-inflicted distinction of being a 25 year-old man-child, Zach Hutton, junior menswear buyer for a large legacy department store, makes an unauthorized purchase of a container load of neckties. In doing so he loses his job, his girl and his bank account.

In a last ditch effort for redemption and to stay solvent, Zach tries to sell the ties on his own. As tie sales sputter and his luck runs out, Zach employs the talents of a lovable pole dancer to redirect the focus of potential buyers of his ties. Add devious family members, corrupt politicians, mobsters, new found love and hot-buttered popcorn to the mix, Zach finds more than a kernel of truth in the saying, “one climbs the ladder of success one rung at a time”.

Knee-jerk reaction by my fellow creatives…

In Indianapolis, Indiana there is a place called Great Cooks the Bakery at 1321 W. 86th St.. They keep Kosher and they have a large selection of Parve and dairy Items available and of course Challah for Shabbat. With this brou-hah about who or what a private business must serve in that state, I wonder if the proprietors of Great Cooks would be breaking the law if they refused to create something that they felt went against their religious beliefs? This simple video says it all. https://youtu.be/RgWIhYAtan4

Consolidation

consolidation

LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, Slideshare, Blog, HootSuite, various websites and more. It’s time to begin rounding up everything in one place and develop a consistent message and brand. I am toying with the idea of a VLOG in 2015.

Today, creating a Turkey could be a good thing,

Thanksgiving

Today is a day to reflect and give thanks. I am thankful for a lot…the best wife and soul mate a human could hope for…a few real friends…my health…good health-care for my wife (no thanks to the empty suit who fancies himself the leader of our people)…meaning and purpose in my life. And, a small ability to help others.

 

Tonight I am able to help out one of my best friends. That is putting a smile on my face. Since I’ve gotten back to a bit of introspection, I try to give thanks to the Big Man upstairs every week also. With the aggressive changes and forward thinking adjustments I’ve made in my life, both in my work and my outlook, 2015 could prove to be a big year in getting my film projects in play. This will benefit all the people I care about the most. Which are those mentioned in the first paragraph. I have no turkeys…with my team, we soar with eagles. #InMyBrothersShoes #AnitaTheMovie #LuciaMauro

Blighty blight

 

DowntonAbbey1

 

 

Is multiculturalism something we’re trying to escape from? It seems to me the success of Downton Abbey, Call the Midwife. the Bletchley Circle,

the-bletchley-circle-s1

Doc Martin, Keeping Up Appearances, As Time Goes By and other  British imports may be attributed to the fact that the stories evolve around a group of people who are similar in background, ethnicity, and values . The introduction of the black character  Jack (Ross) in last season’s Downton Abbey was an obvious, awkward, retro-fit to pull in black viewers. However, it seems presumtuous that in the name of political-correctness or “diversity” to think black audiences can ‘t see through this anachronistic plot twist. In the past 15 years theater audiences have been forced to suspend their disbelief with the concept of color-blind casting. I would much prefer to see an honest Spike Lee or Tyler Perry offering than the black actors that were cast in the chorus line of the Producer’s production number  ‘Springtime for Hitler’.  I mean really?!
