Guns, Humidity, Insanity and Florida

So the latest in Florida gun violence comes from Hialeah, FL where some 42 year old male took it upon himself to go randomly shoot innocent neighbors and hold people hostage because HE was having a bad hair day.  Then, the SWAT team or whatever armed and trained subdivision of the MACHO “protect and serve” unit (whatever it’s called down there – all the names blend to me after awhile – bunches of helmeted gun toting military types in drab colored uniforms, rushing in with more guns and weaponry to STOP the original deranged lunatic shooter). SIGH. When will it end? This isn’t “another” country (to some….the enemy). This isn’t a war. No, this is a region where TV, movies, the internet, and all the advertising in the world calls it “the happiest place on earth” just a few miles away as large iconic mice dance around to popular children’s songs. If this is happy……man, we are in TROUBLE. Now, I know this happens ALL over the country, not JUST the Sunshine State, but with recent events and such, all I have to say is……….SHEESH!!!!! Cut it out! Have a ceasefire! Have a bury your gun day. Or better yet…..have FREE MENTAL HEALTH SCREENINGS EVERY HOUR ON THE HOUR WITH A FREE GLASS OF ORANGE JUICE. Get those crazy, gun toting lunatics in check over there!  Florida’s sun-shiny public image is melting away and making it look like a sunburned, skin cancer that freckles, peels, and bleeds. Put the guns away and start prayin’. God Bless America. Amen.

Georgie Porgie Puddin’ & Pie

So THE VERDICT has been in for over 24 hours. No matter what one may think the sad truth is that a teenager was killed. Horrible. The other thing that is pretty messed up is that George Zimmerman, whether behind bars or not, will probably end up not so well. I mean, look at the guy. One day he’s thin – the next week he’s a blimp. He’s got some hardcore yo-yo dieting issues. And now, that it all went down like it did, he’s really going to be in danger when he binges on those WHITE POWDERED DONUTS. Now, I mean, I don’t want to come off as prejudiced or anything, but George kind of strikes me as the kind of guy who would very much ENJOY stuffing his fat head with TONS of WHITE POWDERED DONUTS. And, should he be gorging himself with those WHITE POWDERED DONUTS one day and accidentally choke on them (while eating them in Sanford, Florida) if he calls 911 while choking on them, how can he be so sure that one of Trayvon’s friends or relatives isn’t going to be working dispatch that night or driving the ambulance or working at the hospital? He can never be certain….as in NEVER again. And from the looks of George, he’s still going to be scarfing down those WHITE POWDERED DONUTS. Now, you can lie about being a racist (at times) you can lie about being a lot of things. But one thing that you can’t lie about is how much you’re putting into your fat face. And George is obviously putting MUCH in there. So Georgie, you’re not going to jail, but I don’t really think you’re free. Just sayin’. RIP Trayvon. God is good ALL the time. Karma is bitch. Peace and many blessings. Amen.

“I’m Messed Up, You’re Messed Up – Let’s Breed!”

God help us all. Used to think only low-class, dirt-bag types were the ones to participate in unprotected sex yielding unnecessary procreation. Then I read the latest article about Charlie Sheen wanting to have his $55,000 a month child support payments ceased.  Now, I’ve been called “crazy” a zillion times (thank you!) but please, God in Heaven, express to me why anyone with even a half a brain cell would give someone like Charlie Sheen that kind of money to begin with….because I just don’t get it. There’s a few other things I don’t get either (but remember….I’m “crazy” by some people’s standards….again, Thanks!). Why would anybody procreate? I mean, have they lived in this world? Now, I don’t want to come off as judgmental or anything. I mean, it’s not like ANYBODY has EVER judged me for NOT WANTING TO PUT MORE PEOPLE ON AN ALREADY OVERPOPULATED PLANET WHERE WE CAN’T EVEN TAKE CARE OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY HERE POST-WOMB. NAH. It’s not like ANYBODY has ever said to me, “oh what do YOU know about ANYTHING….YOU”VE never had KIDS”, or, “well the reason she looks good is because SHE NEVER HAD KIDS !!!!!!” (as they spit in my face and the rage wrinkles up their already sleep-deprived visage) or they FIRE  me from job(s) (plural) as the photos of their ALCOHOL-FETAL OFFSPRING sit calmly on their desks while I leave the office followed by security as I quickly make my way to the airport in hopes of catching the plane that will allow me to witness the last breaths of my dying parent. Don’t get me started on what the government has taken out in taxes in my CHILDLESS earnings. I mean, FAR BE IT FROM ME to JUDGE ANYONE who CHOOSES to BREED. (Whoopsie…..that “crazy”-ness is coming out yet again!) Here’s another QUESTION I’d like to ponder God in Heaven.….Who…..in their functioning right mind….would pay money or go to see a has-been like DON DOKKEN at some blue-collar hole-in-the-wall and then write a review on it like anybody who is not stuck in 1988 really cares?  ANSWER (From God in Heaven): “A Messsed Up BREEDER who has a lame life and who never left low class New Jersey and it’s a Big Deal for that person to try to impress people who do nothing better than drink alcohol and breed”. (Me again) OH! Duh! I forgot all about that. It’s been so long since I’ve been back there. By the way…..THANK YOU GOD !!!!!!!!!!!!  PRAISE YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU GOD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AMEN! AMEN! PRAISE GOD !!!!!  Peace and Blessings.

New York Telephone and Metaphysics

Long before metaphysics and New Thought and all of the New Age-ie gimmicks there was a little commercial that used to air in the New York Metropolitan region. This was long before internet, this was long before cell phones, this was long before social media sites. Regardless, the message rang true. Whether you’re a COP, THUG, MOBSTER, DRUG DEALER, ACTOR, SINGER, DANCER, COMIC, TEACHER, REVEREND, PRIEST, NUN, POPE, SHAMAN, STREET SWEEPER and everything in between and beyond, we are all CONNECTED, and NEW YORK TELEPHONE ran with that saying…..a notorious saying amongst and between the MOB. (I once had a friend in California tell me jokingly….”Anyone from New York or New Jersey has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder” – he was from Jersey). LOL. Enjoy the commercial….a blast from the past….. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UxjPjw04DF4

Freedom, Entitlement and Fireworks God Bless America

I always wonder about people who embark upon the writing and performing arts, exploit other writing and performing artists through public Google documents and the sharing of, record performances without the release or permission of SAG/AFTRA performers, have their performances posted on YouTube and then complain about feedback because their ego is so vested in others’ opinions of them, and assume that one’s rent is paid via “FUN”. It’s interesting to me, how some people are more concerned with validation from the peers in their little clique (ie. thinking they’re “cool” whatever that means) than with the insensitivity of telling “rape” and “dead baby” jokes publicly when they themselves have never had to physically have an abortion after being raped or have never or will never go through pregnancy. Their perception of “cool” is really twisted in my humble OPINION. That’s why I like to get the expression of their minds in black and white (coming directly from them verbatim). And, I like to have a GLOBAL VIEWING of the expression of their minds, because unlike them, I don’t give a shit if I’m “cool” (whatever that means).  I’m a SATIRIST, and satire is public. It’s an art form that educates, empowers, enlightens, shames, ridicules, and picks apart all the nonsense that society presents before us and quite frankly……….puts a big ol’ smile on my face. Cool? Hey, that’s up to the reader. I can’t argue with anyone else’s perception – that’s on them. And unlike some people, I like to be INCLUSIVE rather than EXCLUSIVE. And some times, that means going public. *****names of characters have been changed to reflect MY perception, which is based on MY interaction with these people, and to protect their real identities since they are NOT multi million dollar celebrities (NO KIDDING).

The first expression (below) is me requesting permission to share criticism from those outside of the little clique bubble from where we all met as an attempt to get OUTSIDE perspective……

…..someone I respect from the industry (no names mentioned) and someone else not from over here OR is it TOO early for that ????? (I can send you what they said if you want to know. If not, then, I obviously won’t)

sure

Opinions 

One Opinion:That was wierd, Sweetie!  You were good.  I understood your ‘Paula Dean reference.’  Parts of the Video are funny, mostly because it’s so stupid… like the part with the guy playing the dog, and chasing the other guy around.  Actually, I did not realize he was ‘pretending to be a dog,’ I thought he was just WEIRD, and THAT made it even funnier.  Also, the guy depicting the 1940’s black and white movie out-take… THAT was funny.   Outside of that?  Well, I suspect that these guys are producing a lot of content every day, and so it becomes challenging to ‘cover all the bases,’ making sure everything is of a ‘stellar quality.’  Therefore, I give them a ‘C’ for a good effort, but the content, quality, actors and actors costumes could stand some improvement to make the content truly enjoyable.  The Host, for instance… why is his jacket wrinkled?  Little details like that make a REALLY BIG DIFFERENCE in production quality.  Also, why is the Host ‘pretending’ like the woman at the end is a ‘new person’ he’s not yet interviewed, when the SAME ACTRESS previously portrayed about three other characters?  Stupid. Just not intelligent and smart writing, and/or Video production. Just my take on it.  I hope to not offend you, or your friends, but I think honest feedback is always appreciate.  If, of course, the producers and actors do not care how the product is perceived, because you all a ‘just having fun,’ then bravo!  Have at it.  Mission accomplished.  It looks like you guys probably had a lot of fun, and so that is a good thing.

Another Opinion:

Yes, it was around 2am wen I watched it.  I howled–LOL

Another Opinion:

Glad you had fun & it makes sense that these are ‘tech guys.’. THAT makes sense.

good input

Sheltered White Girl

Ok, I have to get this off of my chest. I very much disagree that this was “good input”. What you have forwarded to us here are the opinions of three people who we don’t know and, personally, I don’t give a shit about their opinions. There was almost no “constructive criticism” here with the exception of one commenter who cancels out anything constructive by saying that our writing was “Stupid. Just not intelligent and smart writing, and/or Video production.” The little bit that WAS constructive was crazy obvious (better costumes? NO SHIT. Enough individual and separate actors for each character? Wow, how insightful. You OBVIOUSLY (to borrow his or her tone) did not explain to them the odd nature of this project. But I’m not upset at him/her,. They were asked for their opinions (by you) and they have a right to their opinions. I am upset at you. What could this information possibly be, but a bummer to the rest of us? The lack of empathy here is astounding. We were (or I was, anyway, trying not to speak for everyone here) having silly fun, not auditioning or trying to make some professional-grade sketch comedy. Aside from not sharing unsolicited reviews from strangers, I would have thought that once you saw how off-base the criticisms were, and how misunderstood the project was, you would have maybe gone back to Mr. or Ms. Snarky McDouch-Nozzle and told them that we thought up and shot this in about six hours. And that we did so on purpose. Maybe knowing those things would have garnered a different reaction. Finally, as you are a former English teacher, I would also have thought that you would be able to recognize the difference between “constructive criticism” and just plain old “criticism”. Constructive and friendly criticism, I might like to hear, but what you sent us was shit that only made me angry at you and a little more self-conscious than I want to be as I take my first steps in to sketch comedy. That said, I shared this with my friends, too. Love it or hate it, it is something fun I did and am proud of it and will have it playing on my tombstone when I die (I assume that technology will be available by then). Name Withheld (Male), I think you did an amazing job editing and I thank you very much for this experience! I hope you invite me to play again sometime.Name Withheld(Male), your Noir Guy was amazing and the last line kills me every time!Maybe now I can stop writing this letter in my head.Thank you,

REV DR DK GEMINI 

Thanks for sharing . FYI. Anger is a gift. Amen.

REV DR DK GEMINI (SENT TO 7 PEOPLE)

My perception of the difference in culture between Seattle and NY/NJ & LA. I knew there was Closet Homosexuality, but I had NO IDEA there was such a thing as CLOSET COMEDY. But I’m just an over 40 non-breeding heterosexual white woman (aka “The DEVIL”), so I suppose I’m out of the loop. I want to do, like BEHIND THE MUSIC——-BEHIND THE COMEDY. (and we’ll have the CLOSET COMEDY version too)PS: The BOLD typeface is who the email is FROM, I tried not to give personal full emails for fear of being persecuted further.

FAT ENTITLED WHITE GUY

Please do not include me in whatever this is, especially as a BCC. I can’t even tell what your diatribe about “closet comedy” and “being persecuted” is about, but near as I can tell you shared a video with people and then sent all their negative and unsolicited criticism to your partners, people who invited you to participate in something creative and positive with them. When they reacted negatively you decided to AGAIN abuse their trust and share their comments with more strangers…why? In the hopes that we would agree you were “persecuted?” Did you think we would all chuckle that someone’s feelings were hurt by people shitting all over their project? I really don’t get what you’re going for here. I just know that I consider these guys, especially NameWithheld, to be friends and fellow comedians and I won’t be a part of shitting on them behind their back. You’re not persecuted. You’re being a weirdo.

REV DR DK GEMINI

my being a WEIRDO is YOUR perception NOT scientific FACT. It’s your opinion. Need I remind you that your “definition” of “shitting” on people is SHARING information that I requested from NAME WITHHELD the creator of the idea’s permission to send. It is my opinion that you are over sensitive and immature but I’m a BIG girl and I know that’s JUST my opinion. My WEIRD self is going to rehearse now for other WEIRDOS who actually make their living off of their art. I will refrain from sending you further ails so that you and your PROFESSIONAL colleagues can gossip about me all you want. Enjoy!!!!!

FAT ENTITLED WHITE GUY

No one gossips about you REV DR DK GEMINI, despite your delusion that the world is out to get you it’s pretty obvious it’s all in your head. If anyone started sending me private conversations with you I would call them out just like I did you. It’s sad to me that at my simple request for you to not include me in whatever drama you’re constructing around yourself this time, your reaction is to try and insult me with weird jabs about my professionalism or “making a living off art,” whatever that’s supposed to mean. I invited you into a group of fun and creative people. You saw fit to share their private conversations with you for the amusement of others. That’s not cool, and that’s what I wanted to get across.

REV DR DK GEMINI

Please stop sending me YOUR opinions. I am disinterested in them. Please take me off your email list and I will do the same. Thank you. Further emails will be considered harassment.

(After I kindly asked FAT ENTITLED WHITE MALE to refrain from sending me emails)

FAT ENTITLED WHITE MALE

You’re a sad, tiny person REV DR DK GEMINI. I hope you get some real mental healthcare soon.

MY HOMEBOY FROM JERSEY

i think that dude overreacted

(This is me again)  LOL!!!! Thank you GOD for this highly enlightening learning experience. Peace and Blessings. AMEN!!!
