Quickest way to get Attention! Pick on Barron Trump!

Personally, I love all forms of humor. Dangerfield, Carlin, Belushi and yes even Cosby.Unfortunately, the age of Political Correctness has brought us Censorship in a bold new format. It has been declared, You can’t pick on this 10 year old kid!

Well, I hate to bring a damper to the censorship wagon, but Barron Trump is now a “Public Figure” and he has been for some time. This brings his life into a whole new arena, whether he and his parents like it or not. He has become the new “child star” of the White House. His every move will be scrutinized and with no fairness. I don’t know if he’s a nice kid or not but even his mother calls him “Little Donald.”
Some would call that “Child Abuse.”

This kid lives in a circus and must take his role as the youngest clown, be it a good thing or bad. Big comments were made about him looking at the floor while sitting at the Inauguration. Pay attention. They put makeup on him so his pale complexion would not show like Casper the Ghost on Camera. In later shots inside, it looks like he got rid of it. As for his yawning, no ten year old is going to do well under the schedule they were keeping or being shoved around by the Children of the Corn. Tiffany and Eric made a point of shoving him behind them when they were walking through the Capitol to the platform.

Barron Trump needs his own fan club. That way people can interact on a more positive level instead of some of the snipes we have heard so far. Perhaps his mom could launch his own line of eye shadow, or T-shirts with him yawning on the front. Thus creating the BarYawn.  I could see everything from YoYo’s to Frisbees selling like crazy.  Add to that the Barron Trump Tribble Junior hairpiece for kids with Cancer and it could be a real hit!

I call dibs!  Contact me Barron, we’ll work it out!

The Internet can be Cool!

I have been on the Internet since the first week it went public. I had the 7th web site that went live. The potential of the technology fascinated me and I wanted to get in on the ground floor.

Over the years, I have designed about twenty different websites for things I was doing and well over 250 sites for customers. I do simple designs that are great for most businesses, especially those who don’t need e-commerce. Along the way, I have had several sites that garnered interest, but none more than one I called “The Cemetery Shop.”  The original intent of the site was to provide a place for people to ask questions about funerals and burials, without having to consult a funeral director.

The site dribbled on for several months and I helped some folks. But it wasn’t a lot of activity. Then one day the Clinton’s let their dog run loose and it got hit by a truck. I wrote an obituary for Buddy and the site popped hundreds of hits over night. Around the same time, the first Iraq mess started and the zoo got bombed and the lion got killed. I wrote an obituary for the Lion and that popped thousands of hits to my site. I sat back in pure wonderment and said, “I wonder what would happen if I did an obituary for a famous person?”

Within a few days, Milton Berle died, so I wrote a full blown obituary and added a picture. The site went nuts! Thank you Uncle Milty! So when the next celebrity died, I added that person and thousands of additional hits. I ran the site from 2000 to 2003 and when I closed it, I had over 4.5 Million Unique visitors a year, the site had been written up in several newspapers and magazines, and some of my obituaries had been read at the celebrity funeral service. I also got to know some celebrities and both George Carlin and Rodney Dangerfield were contributors to other sections on the site.

Social Media has far eclipsed the impact my site may have had. Celebrities either Facebook or Twitter and that gives their fans at least an impression of access. I tweeted to lots of people while on Twitter, some of them from the old days at The Cemetery Shop. It was cool to catch up a little and keep track. I stopped Tweeting when I started this blog, so hopefully a new audience will be garnered. I found out just a few days ago, that a son of my friend in London is an actor there. His name is Christopher Keddie and he has  some credits in the U.K. and I think he could do well here in America too. Directors and Producers, take a look!

Celebrities aren’t the only people you can meet on the net, I have corresponded with writers, politicians, athletes, and even some of the top scientists and tech minds in the world. I know people on all continents and dozens of countries,

How Cool !

Mrs. Brady is Dead!

It’s a story of a Lovely Lady, well at least cute, who was bringing up three very Lovely Girls…two cute one, Marsha. Jan was always my favorite, thank you Eve Plumb. Like the casts of many of our late boomer Sitcoms, the Brady Family and supporting friends are starting to disappear.

We all know, Tiger the Dog disappeared during filming. He got run over by a truck. Robert Reed was the first actor from the show to go, he died of AIDS. I guess the next casualty was Alan Melvin, he played Sam the Butcher. Not too long ago, Ann B. Davis who played Alice, fell down a flight of stairs at her home and died. It makes one wonder if her last words were, ”I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!.” And this week we lost Florence Henderson, age 82.  No longer will we hear her off tune singing, her bitching about Robert Reed or her commercials for Wesson Oil. The catch phrase, “And I Helped!” will have to find a new home.

Last I heard, all the Brady kids are still alive. Barry Williams (Greg) is living in Branson and performing a stage show. I got to see him in 2014 and talked to him briefly. He is still carrying the “Johnny Bravo” ego. Maureen McCormick (Marsha), is still acting and writing books. She also recently did a stint on “Dancing with the Stars”, though I don’t know how anyone could classify her as a “star.” I followed her Twitter Account for a while and finally un-followed her.   Christopher Knight, (Peter) is hocking Furniture and can be found on Twitter too. Eve Plumb (Jan), is an artist now and has been doing some acting. I found her on Twitter and Tweeted a few things back and forth. I haven’t kept up on Mike Lookinland (Bobby), but he was in the business and did a brief cameo appearance, in the Barry Williams “Growing Up Brady” movie. I also found Susan Olson, (Cindy) on Twitter and quickly un-followed her. Her rants reminded me of scenes from “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest.” I even asked her “who put the bug up her Brady Butt.”

Yes late Boomers, we are getting old. All of our favorites from the days of silly sitcoms are fading away and many of the classic dramas too. “The Waltons,” “Little House on The Prairie,” and others have all lost key cast members now. So, as we shed a very brief tear for Mrs. Brady, we are glad to see the reruns continue, even though none of the cast members are making a dime off of them.

And that’s the way we all became the Brady Bunch!
