FACE TIME & JAZZ HANDS

                                 

SO HERE WE ALL ARE ON THIS PLANET TRYING TO FOLLOW ARE DREAMS, MAKE MONEY, MAKE IT COUNT, FIND THE LOVE OF OUR LIFE AND FIND TIME FOR RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS.

 

WE ARE SO BUSY THOUGH!

WE HAVE TO MANAGE OUR FACEBOOK ACCOUNT. MAKE SURE WE UPLOAD PHOTOS AND TAKE THE LATEST QUIZ.

THEN UPDATE TWITTER AND TWEET AT LEAST 2X A DAY.

 

OH YES AND LETS NOT FORGET TO SEND OUT THOSE EMAILS TO OUE DEAR FRIENDS TO SAY HOW MUCH WE MISS THEM AND CANT WAIT TO CHAT.

 

CALL ONSTAR FOR DIRECTIONS, ORDER THOSE NEW JEANS ONLINE, UPDATE YOUR ROAMING CAPABILITY FOR YOUR CELL PHONE AND DELETE YOUR SPAM…

 

 THEN YOU DRINK YOUR BREAKFAST. TAKE THE PILL THAT MANAGES YOUR FRAME OF MIND AND YOU HEAD TO THE OFFICE.

ONCE THERE YOU ARE READY FOR YOUR VIDEO CONFERENCE CALL…

 

RUN FOREST RUN!

 

ITS TIME WE STOP, HEY WHAT’S THAT SOUND EVERYBODY LOOK WHAT’S GOIN DOWN.

 

THE ONLY TIME YOU BUMP INTO ANYONE ON THE STREET, IS WHEN YOU’RE HEADS DOWN AND YOUR TEXTING.

 

SO LOOK, ALL THIS HIGH TECH STUFF IS GREAT!

HOWEVER, I THINK WE HAVE LOST THE ART OF COMMUNICATION.

 

YES COMMUNICATION AND ALL THAT GOES WITH IT…

 

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU RECEIVED A HAND WRITTEN LETTER FROM YOUR LOVE?

 

YOU MIGHT HAVE 582 FRINDS ON FACEBOOK & MYSPACE BUT CAN YOU CALL THEM IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM?

 

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU LAID IN THE GRASS WITH A BOTTLE OF WINE, A BASKET OF GOODIES AND SHARED THAT WITH SOMEONE YOU LOVED?

 

SOMETIMES I THINK WE ARE SO BUSY UPDATEING EVERYONE ON OUR STATUS THAT WE FORGET WHAT OUR STATUS REALLY IS?

 

 

I THINK - ITS TIME WE STOP, HEY WHAT’S THAT SOUND EVERYBODY LOOK WHAT’S GOIN DOWN.

 

OUR NATION IS BROKE, WE HAVE INFLUENZA THAT IS SPREADING LIKE PULLED PORK, DRIVE BY SHOOTINGS,

THE GASA STRIP IS NOW A NEW GO GO BAR AND THE MIDEAST IS IN THE SAME SITUATION SINCE JESUS VISITED.

IF YOU READ THE BIBLE STORIES ABOUT PLAGUE, PESTILENCE, FAMINE AND RAPING AND PILLAGING THE VILLAGE IT SOUNDS LIKE DETRIOT!

 

THE MAYAN PROPHECY HAS PREDICTED THE END OF THE WORLD ON DECEMBER 21ST, 2012.

THERE IS EVEN A WEBISTE ONLINE THAT HAS A COUNTDOWN. AS OF THIS WRITING WE HAVE – 1308 DAYS, 20 HOURS, 54 MINUTES AND 38 SECONDS.

 

SO I’M THINKING - ITS TIME WE STOP, HEY WHAT’S THAT SOUND EVERYBODY LOOK WHAT’S GOIN DOWN.

 

WE HAVE MEDICINE THAT HAS MORE SIDE EFFECTS THAN BENEFITS! ALL WITH THE EXCEPTION OF REQUIP ,THE DRUG FOR RESTLESS LEG SYNDROME.. THE SIDE EFFECTS ARE, INCREASED SEXAUAL DESIRE AND AN URGE TO GAMBLE… I JUST GOT SOME AND IN 2 DAYS I WILL BE IN ATLANTIC CITY LEANING OVER THE CRAP TABLE LOOKING FOR A HARD 7..

 

SO WITH ALL THE TMI AND BRB AND TTYL.

 

I THINK WE SHOULD ASK THE CREDIT CARD COMPANYS TO DEFER OUR PAYMENTS UNTIL 2012. GO SHOPPING, MAKE LOVE, FIND YOU HAPPY TOUGHT AND KEEP IT, TAKES RISKS AND FIND THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE!

 

AS FOR ME – ALL I WANT IS FACE TIME AND JAZZ HANDS!

ALL IS FAIR IN LOVE & FB comments

ALL IS FAIR IN LOVE & FB comments

The other night I was browsing the home page. This woman wrote how crazy in love she was with her Husband and that had been married for many years and they still have it going on.
Then some woman commented and said. “Oh really, then he must be having an affair if he is all into you!” Or maybe you are just delusional because it’s is BS!!
MINGA- WOW~ ~~ !!!!!
The woman that wrote the original post simply replied back and said, “ Sorry you have been hurt!”..

Now that was amazing because if it were me I would have been all over that, soooo typicial Italian!! All in da sauce..

There are some peeps out there that have, shall we say – “FOUND IT”.
The magic and passion. The trust and mutual respect.
The continued longing after years of being together. 
Learning the dance of compromise. Supporting your partners needs and dreams.
Trust me, it can happen! This I know for a fact. 
I am not trying to get all Zen and cerbrial on you here but I am a believer.


With Valentines Day lurking in the wings many things come to mind.
First off, Love got nothing to do with Valentines Day!
Anyone can get all in the Kool-aid for ONE day – Love is maintaining that stature all the time ~

Some Folks are tainted about Love, some folks are in Love with Love and some Folks settle for Love.
Some Folks even misplace Sex for Love! Then six months later you wake up, look at that person and say, “what was I thinking!”. Ahhh, the mistake of Lusty love…

However, not every Mista you meet is Mista Right! He or she may simply be Mista for the Moment..
They may be the person that comes into your world to teach you some lessons. Yes I know – how many lessons do we need.
That depends on you! If you find yourself doing the same things every day, excepting different results, well slap yourself now…

So when u meet someone new and you think there is potential there. Plan the moments rather than the future. It’s not based on manipulation or control but rather a need. Controlling the situation is not about being a control freak. It’s basically about controlling insecurities. Some people use strategies of control to compensate for not trusting. Or what if yourself into a corner for no good reason at all.

Don’t let all those old behaviors take control. Therefore ,do not allow yourself to assume without the facts. Because assumptions manipulate fears and fears drive insecurities and before you know it, You’re in the Land of fear, dread and axeitiy. With a season pass to the resort of Disappointment! And none of it has even happened. You are what if’ing. And then believing it!
If you were hurt !!! Find you way home from there and don’t let what could be a god thing pass you by because you are afraid to let them in or sabotage it.

So if you are in Love – God Bless ya for taking a chance!~~

If you are Single – hang in because your Love will arrive shortly and when you are ready to let it happen.
If you are Asexual – I hope u have a pet !!!!


Most of you peeps that are my Bud’s on here know that I have a flair for Da funny’s but I am gonna close on a serious note. Hope ya dig it!!!
Happy Valentines Day!!

“ Timing is Everything”


How often in this world do we get it right, or perhaps should I say how often do we pretend to get it right. Both statements are equally true!
Does any one really fall in love any more?
I mean falling in love as described by the Great Poets and the Tragic Greeks.

Are we truly driven by the psychosis of our times?
Have you ever heard yourself say this.? Oh it’s better than nothing.
I’m so tired of being alone and the sex is incredible…

If you have than your motivation is not inspired your simply being driven by boardom,fear and lust. Could you imagine Venus the Goddess of Love laying on her feathered bed whining about her fears and spouting out – Oh bring me that! I’m sure it will do for now…

Fortunately I still believe. I believe in passion, in desire, in longing and in romance. I believe in magic for I have felt the fire. Some people look to find a reason to believe and I believe that there is a reason for everything. Timing is a part of structure and cohesiveness. A great concerto can be a disaster if played in the wrong time and a great romance might never be explored because of poor timing.

I don’t think we realize how much we use that word. Whether for positive or negative connotation it’s a word that has less impact but greater value.
For example: I had a great time last night! Okay, it’s time for bed.
It’s time I should be leaving. If we only had more time! I wish I would have met you at another time in my life. This is bad timing. Time heals all wounds. And oh yes – God I’ve lost track of all time. I think that’s the most frightening….

I believe that time is a lesson.
Whether it be fragments, hours, days, months or years. Within that duration we learn about ourselves. We learn how to deal with our journey and how other factors and people can cloud our vision and our emotions. We learn that the Great Poets and the Tragic Greeks are history and their words have faded. We are now tainted … Our spontaneity is squelched and our passion is now guarded. Our view is contorted and you feel every one who enters your world has an agenda that will cause you pain. In some cases that might be true but it might be something you need to experience. You can continue to gather brick and mortar to protect your existence but you’ll never find euphoria. Your energy will only attract those that are less than you, those that will never challenge you and those that will never devastate you. A great prophylactic but no penetration.

So the next time you meet someone and your intrigued or you find they motivate you and excite you don’t use timing as your scapegoat!
Because that chance meeting might not be chance. That might be your most important moment in time. That might be your Great Poet or your Tragic Greek.
Devastation is passing timing is everything. Of course they say that time is an illusion?

THW AGITA MONOLOGUES

I HATE TO WHINE

 

Well here we go again! Have ya been watchin the news.. Jeez,, Run Forest Run!

The Swine flu is back. It’s comin in like Tony Soprano just ordered a hit!

The news stations are all over this like a cheap suit!

I really think that they make it worse..

Flash – The Swine flu is making it’s come back and it’s gonna hit harder and faster. The AMA said they are making the vaccine as fast as they can.. Hello!!!! We need jobs right? You know this last year, right? Don’t make me come there and smack you. You are making it as fast as you can??????

 

Eyewitness news said, with the school season approaching children are advised not to HI 5 or hug.. What!!  Well now we will see a decline in teen pregnancy!!!

 

Fox News: We must all wash are hands as much as possible.. Here we with go with more OCC issues…

 

Cnn News - Dr. Sanjay Gupta touring a hospital. Do we have enough beds, enough meds to support a pandemic? He says hospitals are trying to ramp up…. Are you friggin kidding me!!  For some reason Dr. Gupta pisses me off. If I were ever in a hospital and he walked in.. Ohh fahhhhhh!!!!

 

Have you noticed that when politician talk about it , they call it H1N1, What is it,, Swine flu or H1N1?

Look I hate to look on the dark side here. However the Mayan calendar forecasted the end of the world on December 25th, 2012. There is even a website that has a count down, How friggin sick are people…

If ya look around, between the whacked out weather, Tsunami’s, floods, trees flying in Bergen County towns, planes crashing in parking lots, George Bush, depression, recession, the dollar, wait what dollar? I mean these are things that make ya go Hummmmmmmmm.

 

You never hear this shit in Paris, France. Ahhh the land of Amore, Pepi le Pew. But just so ya know it’s happening there too, Oh ya now the French, there keeping it all quite. But here is the newsflash::::

 There has been an outbreak out of Mime Flu.

President: Nicolas SARKOZY announced that Mime’s have been found all over Paris, dead! From Mime flu, Yes, Oui!!

They have received calls stating that the Mime’s have died in their own boxes that they made. They said it was so sad, no one could hear their cries!!!

 

So now we have all this drama and craziness to look forward too.

But if the Mayan’s are correct and it’s gona be all over on 2012…

Here is my recommendation.

Go to the furniture store and buy all the new shit you want and get on the pay no interest until 2013 deal..

Hey if they are right, you’ll be stylin for a few years. If they are wrong you pray for unemployment extensions.

But in the meantime, hug and kiss and love and live and oh yeah- WASH YOU’RE FRIGGIN HANDS..

TO BE OR NOT TO BE - REALITY

TO BE OR NOT TO BE -REALITY

I looked up the definition of REALITY and here it is:

re·al·i·ty

1. The quality or state of being actual or true.

2. One, such as a person, an entity, or an event, that is actual:  

3. The totality of all things possessing actuality, existence, or essence.

4. That which exists objectively and in fact:  

Relating to or being a genre of television or film in which a storyline is created by editing footage of people interacting or competing with one another in unscripted, unrehearsed situations.

 

Bull shit !!~!~  There is no reality in reality TV.  The Producers set the theme!  They look for HYPE – SCANDEL and any other nonsense that will draw us in or create Hoopla so more will watch.

Which brings me to MTV’s new reality show called: JERSEY SHORE!

O M G – Now this is a train wreck with High Hair and lots O gel.

The Italian American Organizations are so pissed off.

I am 1st generation Italian and I am an Entertainer. As you know I am the producer & headliner of THE ITALIAN CHICKS, an all female comedy/variety show. There is a way to do and say things whereby you can still maintain some integrity. MINGA!!! J 

So I did watch the show the other night? I could not make it thru the entire episode as I thought I was gonna stick a fork in my eye!! Jeezzzzzzz…..Then I watch it again this week – whose doin who, whose tan is better, whose hair is higher, who got drunk, whose getting some. But hey, I disliked Real World and I dont know if anyone was Italian on that?

I don’t now who these kids think they are emulating because the talent is elusive and the muscles and hair product and fake boobs and De-da gurls are all a mess…

But cha know what? I got news for ya – even Polish kids act like that!!!!

If you think this show is bad! This makes Growing up Gotti look like Masterpiece Theatre..

But really now, who else are these Mooks gonna emulate?

We have amazing Italian American writers and directors, like Martin Martin Scorsese and Mario Puzio. They created classics like The Godfather, Goodfella’s, Casino. Movies that folks watch over and over again.

We also have Michelangelo and Pavoratti! But ya think these kids are gona emulate those guys? NO!

I can understand the slight that certain Organizations are feeling but enough – Basta!!!

Show the movie with Charlton Heston portraying Michelangelo and see if da kids down the shore wanna dress like him?

Or maybe they wanna dress up like Pavoratti?  I think not!

But 21-year-old Jersey Shore star Nicole -- a.k.a. "Snookie" -- doesn't see what the big deal is.

"The Italian, whatever, national, whatever their organization is, they don’t understand that 'guidos' and 'guidettes' are good-looking people that, you know, like to make a scene and be center of attention and just take care of themselves," she said on The Wendy Williams Show. "They are old-fashioned. They don't know that; they think it's offensive, because maybe in their time it was offensive, but now it's kind of a compliment. So they don't understand that and that is what we are trying to say. They are way overreacting to the show. We're 22 to 29 just having fun at the shore. They are just taking it way out of proportion."

Listen SNOOKIEThere are some FAB people out there that are Non-Italain, they like being on the scene and making an entrance, they are called self –centered and absorbed not Guido’s & Guidettes! Let’s hope when you all grow up , you lost that !

The shore has all kind’s but if you all think that you are Fly & Gansta, ya ain’t!

As you say “Snookie” –“ these Italian American or what eva you call them” are saying that because you are all acting like Mook’s & Putana’s. And yes, maybe the club scene has changed since they were young and they feel, “ is this what people will think we are”?  

I think the show is ridicules but – Hey don’t watch it!!

I received an email from NIAF – National Italian American Foundation and the subject read –

Italian Americans are Under Attack!

WHAT!!! W H A T ~ ~  Are you kidding me? Look, I think all these Italian American Organizations do some wonderful fundraising and great things for community. I can understand that they are dismayed at the stereotypical references but did you ever hear of a little thing called a SATIRE?

I mean really now, not all of us were born with a silver spoon in our mouths and only a few of us have placed the stick so far up, ya know!

My Father was born in Reggio, Calabria and he was not a Gansta!

But at some point we have to realize the difference between fact and fiction. We have to know that a movie also exaggerates the point for dramatic and artistic purposes.

Tony Soprano was NOT REAL!

So what is real! Yes we do have organized crime –FACT!!

We do have crime Bosses – FACT!

Most of these folks are Italian – FACT!

Now not only are the Organizations pissed at the Jersey Shore but also Saturday Night Live!  They did a SATIRE on Gossip Girl Staten Island. Did I laugh? YES! Why, because it was funny..

I was not pissed nor slighted?

Did you ever walk down any street in NY and not see those kinds of characters?

Yes you have! Some of them are not even Italian, they are NEW YAWKERS !!!!

Or what they call Italophiles.

What is an Italophile you ask? Someone whom is not Italian but loves the culture or a wanna be.

Look it would be lovely if the world emulated all the amazing Italians that gave us concerto’s and song and art, sculpture and there are some very talented folks out there doing just that. So BUY their work, will ya.

But with all due respect, I think you all should lie back on these biting attempts to quell everything. Here is what you are doing:

  • ASKING ALL SPONSORS TO PULL THERE PROMO’S
  • ASKING FOR BOYCOTTS
  • ASKING FOR CANELATIONS

HUMMMMMMM, sure sounds like a threat to me?  Be careful, the zepolie does not fall far from the pot!! Before you know it you will be sounding like all the shows you hate.

And the last thing you want is to get that Al Sharpton reputation?

So as the saying goes, “why cant we all just get along”!

Do I hate the Jersey Shore show, YES!

Why?

Not because they make Italian’s look like Mook’s but because the show SUCKS!!

Did I hate the Soprano’s, NO?  Because it was a fiction based drama!

Now, the reality show  - ( Kate plus 8 ) if she was Italian would that be an issues too? Because I hated that show…

Così siamo tutti parte di una famiglia. Alcuni sono buoni, altri sono cattivi e alcuni sono pazzi!

Dobbiamo sostenere tutti gli americani decente italiana. 

La criminalità organizzata è stato qui per sempre non possiamo fermare o cambiare, è come il governo.

Vivi e lascia vivere e and Viva Italia!

Translation: So we all belong to a family. Some are good some are bad and some are crazy!

We should support all decent Italian Americans.  

Organized crime has been here forever we can’t stop it or change it, it's like the Government.  

Live and let live and Viva Italia.

Now go home and get your Shine Box !!!

"What a Wonderful World"

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
Bright blessed days, dark sacred nights
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands, saying "How do you do?"
They're really saying "I love you"

I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world
Yes, I think to myself, what a wonderful world
