David Geffen
#1
Now you can all line up to take a swipe at me for this, but this is how I feel.

I see it has been reported that David Geffen hosted a whole bunch of A-listers on his yacht over Summer. 

 David's A-list

I tell you why this has upset me, I have always loved, admired and respected David. He is someone I looked up to, empathized with, especially when managing bratty musicians. And truly I loved loved loved him. 

I was hoping to meet him one day, even just to say hello. It hurts, I will never be good enough to say hello to him, he is just not that person that I thought he was. I thought he was a humble genius. 

I think in life it's really important to connect with people whoever you come in contact with. Everyone is equally important not just the rich, not just the privileged. I cannot stand snobbery, I loathe anyone who places themselves above others, I am not saying he is doing that, but what I am saying, is you have to be "somebody" and that is shallow and unkind. 

I could have gone further in certain areas of my life if I chose to walk over people and play the game. I have chosen not to do that, even if it takes me longer to get there. If that excludes me from these type of people then I think it's probably a blessing. 

But I am shocked at how elitist and snobby the whole deal is. Not all of us worship the almighty dollar, or fame. If you are doing all these things just so you can show off, then what's the point? What's the good of ya? I hate that type of clique, it's repulsive to me, because it's putting others down. 

Very sad.

It a shame David failed your feelings for him, just let him bugger off, and good riddance to him!

Never meet your heroes.

I met Michael Winslow from Spaceballs and the Police Academy movies. All I wanted to do was buy a Spaceball tshirt for $20 after the show. They didn't have my size there. Dude straight up lied and said they had bigger sizes available at his website. They didn't, plus they were $10 more.

Exception: Weird Al Yankovic. I was nervous as fuck, and he was cool about it.

Thanks Cars I am back. I am strong from my journey through a maze of bullying and slander and attempts to disempower and undermine me. At first I was really shaken by it. It's so evil and corrupt. But now I am as tough as an old boot. i

Clang, I am not intimidated by someone who is wealthy, or political or well known. I have an ego that I keep in my closet and I only pull it out on the rare exception that I see someone being oppressed. I can crunch someone within an inch of their life. I wouldn't even engage with someone who is snooty because it's just not who I am. For me, I have always admired him and loved him, so yeh, thinking someone is authentic and it turns out it's all about status, is not where I am coming from.

My mission is to roll up my sleeves and help those in need. Even in my day job, I will give air time and extra kindness to those that society shun.

Howdy Big Mark, do you mean the Blood Red Moon? Cause Ima take that as a good sign. Everytime I see a rainbow we say, hey that's for us and take it as a sign that something good is going to happen. People take rainbows for granted, I never miss one.

No I mean masturbating.

Well Big Mark, that is just vulgar in the extreme and not funny. Can't you work them brain cells to come up with something witty and clever? That line just sounds like a poor mans rap song.

I am so so so embarrassed I posted this thread. If I could delete this I would. You shouldn't post stuff about real people except Trump when under the influence. I mean, Duch has said before, you are not really allowed to be remorseful of posting dumbass stuff. But I seem to go to the extremest dumbest stupidest stuff that I have to own and live with, and it's hugely embarrassing.

My life is one long humiliation process I don't need to be creating more of that in here.

Although I will say, even though I do this stuff sometimes, at least I didn't swear on the Bible and lie in court (like a fat cat bureaucrat I saw last year), then give an unbelievable story that no one believed (and there was a shocking Simon and Garfunkel "Sounds of Silence" as he did the walk of shame. I am an honest good person. So yes I do stupid stuff, but not wicked.

That has nothing to do with the original topic, but I could do worse things, and I couldn't wouldn't shouldn't and am not capable of it anyway.

A billionaire hosted a party on his $200 mil yacht and Aussie gets her panties in a knot over it? Yup, sounds about right. Carry on craylay.

No, I was under the influence. I have done my mea culpa which is not really kosher in here. It's not the first time, wont be the last. By the way, I was talking about the real David Geffen, not you.

Aussie, Don't be so hard on David, he was only recreating "The Magical Mystery Tour" for his buddy Paul.

I know Zero, you are right. He is free to hang with anyone and God bless him. He is up there with Gore Vidal for me. I adored Gore Vidal and was one of those people that I never wanted to die. I feel the same way about David Geffen, he has done such great things, and I do think he is a kind generous soul. It's not my place to tell anyone anything. I come from another world from him.

Yeh, I'm the only one that does it, it's a phenomenon. I just saw a picture of you and your family, for the first time. I had no idea what you looked like and I have to say I am pleasantly surprised. I expected you to look completely feral.

Well that's a relief. I often wondered what our stem cell patients think when I enter the room, now I know i'm not completely feral looking.

haha. You know Blindgreed, I am at war in my real life with a Goliath who is in a great position of power and is corrupt. I don't have the capacity to be an antagonist like before. All I've got is cheap one liners.

Still having moments of "aaahhhh I didn't" and it's like "oh yes you did". You can't delete here, so you just have to wear it.

I think I have been under so much stress under a prolonged period of time, I do dumb shit sometimes. Gotta say though I'm still standing after fighting Goliath and you know what that means. So hopefully that means no illiterate posts, and maybe I won't get kicked out of the crime forum either too.
