Jet Set Trash

We at and bionic films have worked on a number of eclectic projects in our brief history including a documentary on youth in the care of the Children's Aid Society in Canada that has been shown nation wide. I recently came across this funny 1950's public service announcement parody we made in our early years and thought I'd share it with you. It's called The Modern Man's Guide to the Jet Age Girl. It comes with a parental advisory as it gets nasty. Sort of. Enjoy.

The Price is Right

Bob Barker has a chance to win his 18th Daytime Emmy. It’s hard to believe that Bob Barker is 83 years old, but I suppose that is what plastic surgery, California living, and 3 hip replacesments can do for you. I also wonder how he has maintained his mental alertness, perhaps the vegetarian diet is his secret to longevity and mental health. Back in the day, when a contestant won a bonus $100 for getting a price exactly correct he used to have the ladies dig into his suit pocket for their prize. Bob has also been tainted with several law suits for sexual harassment of the prize models, so he is by no means a perfect citizen. However, with 6.1 million people a day tuning in, I say "let's get to the showprice - showdown !".

Is that a threat or a promise??

I have always been a bit of a fan of P.Diddy. He is a self made success story, able to achieve significant artistic and cultural influence within the context of a racial bias of "middle class America". His ambition, style and ability has emerged from the suburbs and urban centers of the US to launch a multifaceted global presence in the arenas of music, fashion, and entertainment. Perhaps that is why I am so interested in following this news story out of LA.

It seems Diddy has been sued by a man who alleges that the rap impresario attacked him at a pre-Oscars party last week. According to a Reuters report, Gerard Rechnitzer claims in a law suit filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court that Diddy pushed and punched him during the early-morning scuffle.

In the suit, Rechnitzer, 27, claims he and his girlfriend ran into Combs at the club Teddy's inside the Roosevelt Hotel in the early morning hours of February 25. When Rechnitzer returned from a trip to the bathroom, he found Combs talking to his girlfriend and when Rechnitzer approached, Combs, 37, yelled at him "in a threatening and ominous matter," according to the suit. Rechnitzer claims in the suit that after he approached Combs, the rapper/producer shouted an obscenity at him without provocation, leading Rechnitzer to warn his girlfriend that they should leave. That allegedly prompted Combs to yell at him, "I'll smack flames out your ass!," according to the Reuters report. It was at that point, the suit claims, that Combs "attacked, assaulted and battered" Rechnitzer, causing him "to fly backwards several feet" into a vehicle behind him. Combs then allegedly pushed Rechnitzer's girlfriend and attempted to spit on another female member of Rechnitzer's group, prompting Rechnitzer to call the police.

I generally give the benefit of the doubt in a lot of these nuissance lawsuits...particularly given the alleged insult from Diddy. I mean, "Flames out your ass"? I might expect this from Will Smith...but Diddy could do much better than that!!

How much do I have to pay you for that crap?

I had my first expereince at a "real life" auction the other day and it was quite revealing. Upon first observation, I couldn't help but notice the particpants did not appear to be highly intelligent (although at first I was wondering if this was an ellaborate scheme to confuse the other bidders, in a kind of 'reverse psychology' behavioural finance emotive). Sadly, this did not seem to be the case when it became evident that one of the particpants did not realize the condition of sale policy was not quite as liberal as Walmart. I began to actually wonder how some of these people would find their way home...unless they all travelled together in one of the short busses.

It is difficult to compete in a quest to find a deal at an auction, when clearly the participants' access to capital, surpasses the value of the merchandise for sale as well as the collective brainpower of the particpants. Some people will buy anything at almost any price, in order to be the "winning" bidder. I could not believe that one individual walked away as the proud owner of a used "Tickle Me Elmo" doll.

The best deals of the night appeared to be the bulk purchase of a number of slightly flawed or used women's garments for less than 10 bucks total. Another shrewd bargain hunter walked away the proud owner of more 2007 desktop calendars than a stationary store, for a total of 5 dollars. The irony was that a senior member of the bionic buddha production squad felt he was getting a deal when he had bought 3 calendars for 3 dollars. At the end of the night, we had fun, which alone is worth more than the cost of the calendars. It was not the first time we have been outsmarted by a group of time perhaps we should take the example from the photo above, just to level the playing field.
