Paparazzi, Paparazzi~

March 19, 2007 — 1 Comment

Why are they wrong? Why are they right?

In my humble opinion, both sides are not right. However, the paparazzi reasons are more sensible, than the silly “There’s something outrageous, illegal and immoral about all of that,” that Mr. Sunshine (haha, smile, Mr. Sunshine!) says in the following CNN articles.

Frank Griffin on defending.

Ken Sunshine on why they’re wrong.

I’ve already rant and rant about this same issue. Sometimes, yes, paparazzi get too far. Case and point, Natalie Portman in Argentina being pushed around, so they could get a clear shot of her face. Yeah, it blows. But agents should stop blaming the paparazzi, and start urging their clients’ fans to stop being interested in the damn things! Paparazzi are only doing their job, which has evolved from the insane interest people have on celebrities. I am even guilty of that! So I include myself in this insanity. However, I have stopped for a while now… so think about it.

If all the fans around the world stop looking at paparazzi pictures, there will be NO DEMAND on their pictures, making them FIND A NEW JOB TO PAY THE BILLS. This is no rocket science, nor the most effin’-taboulos new discovery.

So it all goes back to the people. Get it, Mr. Sunshine? It’s not the IMMORALITY of the paparazzi who hangs around the celebrity home, it’s the IMMORALITY of the fan who WANTS and CHOOSES to buy or search ANY of those images to mind YOUR CLIENTS’ businesses. But, hey! You live off of these fans who buy your clients’ products, watch your clients’ films, and listen to your clients’ music.

In the end, celebrities will either have to appeal to their fans’ good nature to leave them the EFF alone… or just effin’ accept this evolution of celebrity stalkers… and just give the paparazzi what your effin’ fans bloody want!

Today was the day Discovery Channel was gonna premiere The Lost Tomb of Jesus, the James Cameron documentary that everyone is fuzzing about. However, Discovery has decided to postpone the date to April 29th.

FUCK UPS.

Couldn’t you come up with a 15sec video telling me so? I had to fucking google it up to find out????

From cineencuentro.com,

El documental producido por James Cameron que ha sido la comidilla de todos los especialistas, religiosos, creyentes y no creyentes, El sepulcro olvidado de Jesús (The Lost Tomb of Jesus, 2007) se transmitirá este domingo 18 de marzo a las 8:00 p.m. en Discovery Channel

FUCKERS, couldn’t you let me know WAY BEFORE March 18? I had to fucking go INTO the Discovery Channel FORUMS to FUCKING FIND OUT????

From Discovery Channel Forums,

Desafortunadamente, hoy me informé que a través de un comunicado de prensa, Discovery Channel postergó la emisión del programa El Sepulcro Olvidado de Jesús. Según el informe de prensa esto se ha debido a problemas técnicos de ajustes de los interesantes programas, que Discovery Channel emite diariamente en Latinoamérica, exceptuando a la emisión en Argentina, quienes tienen un sistema menos complejo. El programa “El Sepulcro Olvidado de Jesús”, estará en las pantallas de televisión, el día 29 de Abril de 2007. Según establece la fuente oficial, la medida anunciada no se debe a presiones externas, tales como la interposición de demandas en tribunales por organizaciones cristianas, entre las cuales se cuenta el conglomerado fanatismo de las Iglesias Evangélicas, quienes ven un perjuicio en sus interes, la eventual difusión de ese documental televisivo.

La emisión de tal programa televisivo auspiciado por Discovery Channel estaba propuesto para este domingo 18 de Marzo a las 22 horas, sin embargo no podrá salir al aire debido a problemas internos que tiene la programación del Canal.

Hemos de esperar que esta postergación tenga por finalidad, llevar a cabo un idóneo trabajo para la difusión definitiva del programa “El Sepulcro Olvidado de Jesús”, que millones de seres espirituales en Latinoamerica y el mundo entero, está esperando verlo, y no asumir una sesgada prudencia ante la amenaza de eventuales demandas judiciales que podría verse afectado Discovery Channel por su difusión.

El “Quijote de la Mancha” no habría esperado intromisión alguna antes “Molinos de Vientos” y menos ante un “perro que ladra no muerde”, y que es señal que Discovery Channel está avanzando en su misión de ofrecer información acerca de descubrimientos que podrían hacer reflexionar la conciencia espiritual de todo el mundo y ser motivo de una probable revolución espiritual.

This past week has been really really busy, while designing CD Artwork, re-programming a website, talking to clients for future projects, writing my series pilot, trying to write my short film, and designing a book. *phew*

I feel tired just thinking about it all…

It seems like a lot… but not a lot of money, so it kinda sucks.

Anyway, I took some time off to watch ANTM8, the episode was OK. I felt sad for Jael, but holy crap~ Britanny’s photo kicked ass. I loved her expression, it was great~ I was also glad to see Sarah doing good… she had great eyes in her picture. :)

Enjoy,

I wanted to rant about this on Thursday, but I totally forgot about it. So, Peru sucks… television-wise. I mean, I would love to be legal about all sort of stuff… for example, watching TV shows on TV, but I can’t do it, so I watch it on YouTube because I’m not willing to download 300MB for an episode. I can’t watch shows that I want on TV, because they either take 6 months for Sony Entertainment (in the case of America’s Next Top Model) to bring the new episodes, or they NEVER bring the episodes. So, networks, SUCK IT UP!

Recently, DirectTV just set up their signal in Peru, but they pretty much show what Cable Magico is showcasing in its regular lineup, and it doesn’t include channels like ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX (America), FX (America) or CW Network. About 8 or 9 years ago, Cable Magico used to have ABC, NBC, CBS and The WB, which was GREAT because I used to be able to watch the episodes of my favorite shows the day they premiered in the States, and I didn’t had to wait for Latin American networks to subtitle them. For the past 7 or 8 years, I haven’t been able to.

What’s the point in me getting DirectTV, or any other Satellite TV Company when I will ALWAYS have to wait for shows because they don’t buy the rights to American broadcasting companies. However, if they DID give me the chance to get these channels, or channels from Canada, or the UK or all over the world, I would totally get Satellite. Right now, it doesn’t bring ANY benefits to me.

So, here’s the other problem~ YouTube keeps taking things out. You fucking bastards! (I said this was a rant!) – Ever since Google bought it, it’s been sucking more and more. One really fun video of Anya as a bunny got suddenly removed, and the account of the user who did it was removed- that was seriously not breaking any copyrighted material, that fan had all the right to do that video. I know of other 2 or 3 users whose accounts got deleted.

So, networks, if you don’t want your material to be watched online because it hasn’t aired in one region, then start airing your effing episodes everywhere, so people, who watch your show and are not able to get your signal, don’t watch on YouTube. And continuing with the CW Network example, you effing bastards – just send the signal to Cable Magico (and other cable companies around the world), so they can broadcast the same day. It WON’T get rid off the problem, but it will decrease the amount of people who watch online. Just like what happens with movies that open worldwide… There’s still online files, but there’s also people around the world who go to the movie and watch (unless your movie sucks) – but even IF YOUR SHOW SUCKS, they don’t pay to watch it… so there will still be people who will watch it.

For instance, I wanna effing watch Dirt… by FX – BUT, Cable Magico shows FX Latin America~ SO, they are not even mentioning Dirt… and I don’t even know if FX Latin America will show Dirt, because sometimes all programs jump around networks here. For example, since there was no The WB, Buffy used to be shown on FOX… but Dawson’s Creek was on Sony Entertainment Television. Other examples are… Nip/Tuck that airs on FOX, instead of FX… Lost airs on AXN, and According to Jim (who also belongs to ABC, the same as Lost) airs on Sony… and CSI airs on Sony, while CSI NY and CSI Miami air on AXN~ so many crazy jumps and changes.

There is no effing Dirt, no Ugly Betty, no ANTM, no Hell’s Kitchen, no Iron Chef, no new episodes of Nip/Tuck, Desperate Housewives just beginning season 3 (which I began watching 6 months ago in Canada).

Other channels that we should get… Food Network, MuchMoreMusic, Showcase and Bravo!

Ok, rant’s over.

I have been listening and re-listening to Marit Larsen’s album (*hint* you can still listen to some of the songs in the music player section) – I bought it almost a year ago, but for the last week I have been hearing 3 or 4 times a day. It just seems so short! It lasts no more than 40min, so when it ends, it leaves you wanting more :P

Anyway, *Amy goes to turn on her disc reader and listen to the CD* – Shoot, even talking about the album makes me wanna listen to it. OK, so I have been listening to it, and felt like doing a portrait of Marit. This is officially my 2nd portrait, and my 3rd digital painting, and my 4th digital artwork – and God! It’s so difficult, I wouldn’t even dare doing it for real with real painting and with real canvases. More power to the real painters out there~

After 13hrs, and maybe 15 plays of the CD, I came out with a pretty decent painting… but it’s always the EYE that screws me over. And I didn’t even have two eyes to screw over like my digital Sooz, which you can see on my DeviantART account. Anyway, here it is…
