As always, very well written and great observations. I think that the almost limitless access we all have to media has really desensitized us to the ‘ownership’ of what we see. People have come to think that they have the right to know everything about everyone, and, in the example you cited, record anything or anyone they want to. Privacy is something that is slowly becoming a precious commodity- especially for ANYONE who is remotely in the public eye. Thirty or forty years ago, stars and people of note could dodge the photographers or sneak away for a quiet weekend. Now everywhere you go almost everyone has the ability to photograph or videotape you. And the internet then allows the world to see the results. I often hear older people say that it was a simpler time when they were younger- and I believe that they are right.

Front-and-centre guy = A twitterite strikes again??? Another person who wants to be thought of as cool?
I was watching a TV doc last week about the history of live entertainment. During the “early days” of modern live entertainment, some artists would do the same act for their entire careers. Wilson Keppel and Betty did that sand dance routine, every night for their entire career… pretty amazing when you think how boring that would be.
Then, when TV came along, it marked the end of many acts, because once the whole country had seen a routine, they couldn’t take it on tour.
I remember going to see rock gigs when I was a teen, and you would get frisked on the door by security, any cameras found would be confiscated. And as you know… that’s my life, guess who had the camera! Now, bands encourage people to take photos, and they will use them on their websites. Times change.
I understand where the comedian is coming from, but to expect to do an act in complete secrecy these days? It’s not going to happen is it?! Bootlegging live material has been around since I was a kid. But yeah, I know where you’re coming from too, and it’s a bit lame to ruin someones livelihood for the sake of Twitter or You Tube.
I went to see a comedian called Andy Parsons, he’s on a quiz com over here and he’s really funny. However, his whole act was made up of the quips he makes on the TV show. Heard them all before, and you leave feeling a bit cheated. How hard is it to keep your TV material separate from a live show?
But going back a year or two, is it two? Jeez time just whizzes by… but it just shows how hard it is to perform comedy, and being naturally funny doesn’t make you a comedian. It must be really hard to put up with all the shit they get.
A recent poll over here amongst pro comedians on tour, revealed that Liverpool is their hardest gig. Most comedians find Liverpool audiences the hardest to play too. Apparently they think the audience thinks they are funnier than the act… and from what I’ve seen… they have a point.
This Bin Badman thing… I mean, if your government don’t want another conspiracy theory… show a damn picture of the guy before you toss him overboard. Now we have the “Is he…or isn’t he dead” thing going on. It will run like Roswell, Area 57, The Moon Landing, Marilyn Monroe, JFK, 9/11, 7/7… Elvis and Bruce Lee and the damn Owl. Oh!… and Obama’s birth certificate and Donny Trumps hair!
First he was shot in a gun fight, then he was unarmed and hid behind his wife… it just fuels the conspiracy theories when nobody sings from the same sheet.
Phew!!!… what a ramble that was 🙂

As always, very insightful and well written. I specially liked the relief without celebrating a death – some of the pictures I’ve seen of Americans really make me almost ashamed. And scared.
Hope the book is going well. I guess you’re almost to the rewrite/edit stage. It’s wonderful that you have an outlet besides this site. You are building a voice and name for yourself. Keep up the good work. And keep painting, if you can fit it in.

A Buddhist Blessing for you.
Just as the soft rains fill the streams,
pour into the rivers and join together in the oceans,
so may the power of every moment of your goodness
flow forth to awaken and heal all beings,
Those here now, those gone before, those yet to come.
By the power of every moment of your goodness
May your heart’s wishes be soon fulfilled
as completely shining as the bright full moon,
as magically as by a wish-fulfilling gem.
By the power of every moment of your goodness
May all dangers be averted and all disease be gone.
May no obstacle come across your way.
May you enjoy fulfillment and long life.
For all in whose heart dwells respect,
who follow the wisdom and compassion, of the Way,
May your life prosper in the four blessings
of old age, beauty, happiness and strength.
Have a great weekend dear lady.

Ill bet you’d like to have a lot of video destroyed.

Is that comment sincerity or sarcasm Scott?

Salmacis99…its a little thing me likes to call honesty. Not butt kissing, not breaking down, just forthright honesty without a desire to suck up or smackdown…she probably would LOVE to have a lot of video excised from existence!

I get it- I’m sure that Jennie would love to have it all destroyed. I just asked because there are people who respond here who are just trying to stir up trouble and be negative. Seeing your response I get where you’re coming from. And yes, I do see a lot of posts that could be considered butt-kissing and sucking up, but overall I really think that most people who follow Jennie’s journey are genuinely supportive. And blunt honesty likes yours never hurts once in a while 🙂
