Life is difficult to understand, and often it seems the chances for success and opportunities for happiness are distributed disproportionately among jerks, that wealth and power are becoming the new version of royalty in the world, either you are born into it, or you learn to do without. Scraping by on subsistence wages, and hoping to break even before you give up the ghost. Or as Ian Anderson sang so prophetically;
"And you place your final burden
On your hard pressed next of kin;
Send the chamber pot back down the line
To be filled up again."
Occasionally, though, you find the pot o' gold at the end of the rainbow, the golden ticket, the goose that lays the golden egg. If you are lucky. Or, ingratiate your self with someone who might get wealthy, and powerful, which is the path I chose.
Fellow blogger, +Mike Raven who writes the very funny Blog of Thog has decided to pursue a career in performance art, and here is his latest masterpiece.
I am not sure how many views it takes to make "viral" but this video has at least enough to be "bacterial." which is a good start. Plus, it is about Clash of Clans, a gaming sensation that is sweeping the nation, and a good thing, too. This nation could use a good sweeping.
This guy is headed for the big time, and has asked me to manage his first world tour.
Mike is not an old man, but, he is not too young (like a certain train wreck teen idol whose name we will not mention) he is what we call, in the entertainment biz, "just old enough to make me rich and not need a full time babysitter."
So, buy your tickets to the "Song of Thog." Get your "Thog" tshirts, and baseball caps, and sun visors, and videos, and action figures, and bumper stickers, and CDs. Plus, as an added bonus for you old timers, and as tribute to stars from days gone by, we are going to release the first album on 8 track tape, too.
In an unrelated question, which gated community for filthy rich entertainment moguls is rated highest? I was just wondering.
