Diddy For President! {I Want to Work for Diddy: The Man, the Myth}

August 1, 2008

The preview episode for Diddy‘s (aka Sean Combs formerly known as P. Diddy, formerly known as Puff Daddy) latest reality tv show I Want to Work for Diddy: The Man, the Myth reminded me a lot of a presidential campaign–with one exception: I understand what Diddy is talking about. Diddy presents himself as a no-nonsense boss that can get things done. I’m not saying that Diddy can navigate domestic and international political waters, but I haven’t heard much from either Senator McCain nor Senator Obama about what they plan to do. It’s always about what they believe–the rhetoric of beliefs. That said, the upcoming National Conventions will be pretty boring. (Exception: How is Hillary Clinton going to ask the Democratic Party to support Senator Obama when she argued so vehemently against him? Stay tuned!) Here are some quotes from Diddy that would liven up the conventions:

It’s a hard mother f****ing job, but somebody’s got to do it.

To succeed in anything in life you need a vision. If you can’t see the forest through the trees, you need to chop them mother f****ers down.

If you gave it you’re all, that’s the kind of performance I judge. I judge your heart. You got to go hard or go home.

I want my dreams to come true, but not in a selfish way. I want other people’s dreams to come true, too.

Sleep is forbidden. When I’m working, I’m a machine and I don’t look at other people like they are human.

You got to be able to make a way out of no way.

I sometimes feel sorry for people that don’t work for me, ‘cuz I know they not be having as much fun.

Real World Cast is a bunch of Douche Bags

June 25, 2008

I used to watch MTV‘s The Real World. I think I stopped keeping up with this show after Austin or Philadelphia. My favorite season was San Fransisco because the cast was intelligent (yes, even Puck) and actually viewed the opportunity to further their own interests or careers. It was a time before the term “Reality TV Star” evolved. The 1994 cast didn’t come on the show knowing that they would have a future as contestants on something called The Real World/Road Rules Challenge. They didn’t have a cool built-in job waiting for them. They also didn’t romance each other (although Rachel and Puck kissed and Judd and Pam got together after the show and later married). The latest Real World Hollywood cast is living in a “house,” a movie set complete with a security fence. They have a cool job at an improv theater, but they spend most of their time nursing hangovers and bickering. What cracks me up about this cast is that they call each other “douche-bags.” Who resurrected this term from the 1980’s? They even talk in douche-bag code “He’s a D.B.” Maybe I’ll watch another episode to see if they can become like more wickedly awesome, f***ing a……
