CONDEMNING MATERIALTY

  “CONDEMNING MATERIALITY” That phrase was coined in the “Sixties” by some Moron and like most of the “Long Haired, take our Self Serious wannabe’s,” I fell for it. I ask you, “What in the Hell” is wrong with being “Materialistic” as long as it bring’s one…”JOY.” I read somewhere: “Live for the fun of Read More …

To the Impatient, Untrusting & Unhappy Protesters

  To the “Impatient, Untrusting & Unhappy” Protesters:   “The Older I Get, the Smarter my Father Gets.”   “WISDOM” is not a Gift, it’s Earned and it “WAITS,” “Patiently” and “Anxiously” for us All. “PATIENCE,” we learn from our Mothers, “TRUST,” we learn from our Fathers. Learn to “Reach,” not “Grab.” “Patience & Trust,” Read More …

“BEING DONALD TRUMP”

  “BEING DONALD TRUMP”   Why he is “ADMIRED, ENVIED and HATED.”   When one “Succeeds,” one is no longer in the “Hunt,” the “Excitement of Expectation” is over. When one faces “Success,” it means “Accepting Finite,” when one’s natural instinct is, “Resist Acceptance” and “Seek the Infinite.”   Being “Successful” is not natural, it Read More …

“AUDITIONS” an unpredictable event

  “AUDITIONS” A fancy word for “Life’s Unpredictable Events.”   It is synonymous with Acting and that is the first mistake the Actor makes. Thinking it takes, Talent, Skill, Experience and Ability, nothing could be more further from the truth. “Events” are not something we do, they are something that happens to us.   Successful Read More …

“HYPOCRISY rears it’s ugly head”

  “HYPOCRISY, rears it’s ugly head.”   “ONE” is behaving in accordance to what we expect of “ONE.” The “OTHER ONE” is NOT behaving as we expect “ONE” to behave in accordance of OUR own “Belief System.” Therefore “Neither” is not doing what all of us Do or Have Done.     When “ONE” behaves Read More …

SAM, BARBARA & RALPH KRAMDEN

  SAM, BARBARA & RALPH KRAMDEN   (only my “former students” will get this analogy)This has nothing to do with “Gender,” only the “FIMP.”     An Actor is one of the above:   1-BARBARA wanting to be SAM   2-SAM being BARBARA or 3-SAM being SAM (succeeds)   4-The Non-Actor is BARBARA being BARBARA Read More …

A SUNDAY MESSAGE

  A SUNDAY MESSAGE “The Fault dear Brutus, lies not in the Stars, but in Ourselves we are Underlings.” Shakespeare     (That’s a worn out quote we’re familiar with, too bad we never learn to “Heed” it).   There are many ways to Break one’s Spirit, “Name calling” is one of them. That “Cruelty,” Read More …

“THE SUCKER PUNCH” Making Decision

  “THE SUCKER PUNCH” Making Decisions   ‘Who I am,” GOD created, “Who I was,” Others created, “Who I will Become,” I Create.   The victims of “THE SUCKER PUNCH” (blindsided by the ideas & thoughts of others, especially Family, Friends & Loved Ones, “Media”), targets, “Who We Were,” it is familiar territory, they pilfered Read More …

“IT AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN”

“IT ‘AIN’T’ GONNA HAPPEN”   “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN”   How in the Hell you “Going to do That?” When “Great Again” means different “Times” and different “Things” to different “Cultures.” For me (Italian Culture) means walking into someone’s home and smelling “Garlic & Coffee” not Fabreze & Comet. When Kitchens looked like Busy Restaurants Read More …
