Former Cosby show star shamed for having a job gets job offer from Tyler Perry

Cosby Show Geoffrey Owens

  Events after the Trader Joe’s job-shaming incident. Owens has taught acting classes at Yale and has appeared on several television shows over the years such as The Affair and Lucifer, but he said no job has lasted more than 10 weeks. The Trader Joe’s gig gave him the flexibility to audition while earning a steady check. Owens has now quit his grocery store job that he had been at for 15 months because all of the new-found attention made it impossible to remain working there. But, it’s likely that Owens will see a slew…

Former Cosby Show star has pleasant job with health insurance and teaches Shakespeare

Cosby Show Geoffrey Owens

Recently I came across a D-Bag blog has posted a story about “Faded” Cosby Show star Geoffrey Owens was now a “starving actor” working as a cashier at Trader Joe’s. Those that think having a pleasant job in a happy environment (with health insurance) can make someone “faded” are mistaken as to what being an actor or getting roles entails. Or do these clowns actually think that having a recurring role on a show for a handful of years makes you rich beyond your wildest dreams to the point of…

Asking for a favor? How do YOU behave after asking?

confused meme - Asking for a favor? How do YOU behave after asking?

I ran into a frustrating situation recently and typed-out this mile-a-minute stream-of-consciousness post soon after. Instead of hitting “enter” and having yet another post out in Facebooklandia that could be interpreted as a downer, I went with the copy-and-paste-into-a-blog option. Here’s the situation: Co-worker posts a request seeking someone to help them out with something work-related.   1) I reply to the post informing them that I’ll let them know if I can help once I learn about one of the two possible dates for a prior commitment. No response,…

Beating Writer’s Block

Writer's block

I subscribe to “Daily Writing Tips” and find their mailings to be quite informative so I thought I’d pass along some of their tips with a link to subscribe to their content. They definitely deserve a shout-out! -Jon Every writer, at times, has trouble thinking of what to say next. Or what to say at all. The cause may be fear, pressure, perfectionism, but often lack of inspiration. No doubt even Mesopotamian scribes of five thousand years ago hesitated before putting stylus to tablet. We’ve written about writer’s block several…

Film Guages and their effects – Super 8, 16mm, 35mm, 65mm, IMAX 65

Film gauges

Film Gauges The film gauge that filmmakers use – the width of the strip – heavily affects the mood and tone of the movie. While many filmmakers today choose to gravitate towards digital, Paul Thomas Anderson, Christopher Nolan, and Quinton Tarantino have been very strong advocates for keeping film alive. Today there are just a few major gauges of film Super 8 16mm 16 millimeter film is grainier and often results in a dirtier texture. Think about  the raw and unpolished look of low budget horror films from the 70’s…

Boarder wall between the U.S. and Canada?

United States Canadian Boarder

With the attention given to the billions of dollars that would be needed to put up and maintain a wall between the United States and Mexico, something that should come to mind is the boarder between U.S. and Canada. (officially known as the International Boundary). Some have asked the question:   Is there a wall between The United States and Canada? Douglas Chapel, Avid follower of Canadian politics; general Canadaphile No, there is certainly nothing that would be understood as a wall along any significant part of the U.S.-Canada border.…
