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.

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?!
